Rajeswari Swaminathan, Yungui Huang, Caroline Astbury, Sara Fitzgerald-Butt, Katherine Miller, Justin Cole, Christopher Bartlett, Simon Lin
The increased adoption of clinical whole exome sequencing (WES) has improved the diagnostic yield for patients with complex genetic conditions. However, the informatics practice for handling information contained in whole exome reports is still in its infancy, as evidenced by the lack of a common vocabulary within clinical sequencing reports generated across genetic laboratories. Genetic testing results are mostly transmitted using portable document format, which can make secondary analysis and data extraction challenging...

Primay melanoma of the cavernous sinus is very rare with only few cases reported in the literature. We present the cross-sectional imaging findings of this rare tumor. The differential diagnosis for cavernous sinus mass lesion is wide as it contains vital neurovascular structures that may be affected by vascular, neoplastic, infective, and infiltrative lesions arising in the cavernous sinus proper or via extension from adjacent intra and/or extracranial regions. Radiologic imaging can narrow the differential diagnosis, however, imaging cannot definitely reach single diagnosis if they present in atypical form with hemorrage and cystic degeneration...

Germline mutations in SDHB predispose to hereditary paraganglioma syndrome type 4. The risk of developing paraganglioma (PGL) or pheochromocytoma (PHEO) in SDHB mutation carriers is subject of recent debate. In the present nationwide cohort study of SDHB mutation carriers identified by the clinical genetics centers of the Netherlands, we have calculated the penetrance of SDHB associated tumors using a novel maximum likelihood estimator. This estimator addresses ascertainment bias and missing data on pedigree size and structure...

BACKGROUND: It is known that not all chiropractors follow mainstream guidelines on the use of diagnostic ionising radiation. Various reasons have been discussed in the literature, including using radiography to screen for congenital anomalies, to perform postural analysis, to search for contraindications to spinal manipulation, and to document chiropractic subluxations, i.e., tiny anatomical displacements of vertebrae thought to affect nerves and health. The visualisation of subluxations was the reason chiropractic first adopted the x-ray in 1910...

REVIEW
J Studzinski
The Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM) has been jointly developed by HIMSS Analytics and the European Society of Radiology (ESR). It helps evaluate the maturity of IT-supported processes in medical imaging, particularly in radiology. This eight-stage maturity model drives your organisational, strategic and tactical alignment towards imaging-IT planning. The key audience for the model comprises hospitals with imaging centers, as well as external imaging centers that collaborate with hospitals. The assessment focuses on different dimensions relevant to digital imaging, such as software infrastructure and usage, workflow security, clinical documentation and decision support, data exchange and analytical capabilities...

BACKGROUND: The cavernous sinus is a venous plexus crossed by vital neurovascular structures. Metastases to the region are uncommon and often associated with a headache, facial pain, or progressive neurological deficit in III, IV, and VI cranial nerves. The treatment options are surgery, including endoscopic approach, radiotherapy, radiosurgery, and chemotherapy. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report the case of a 26-year-old female with cavernous sinus syndrome due to breast cancer metastasis, who was subjected to chemotherapy with complete neurological recovery...

Nasal turbinates are embryologically derived from a series of outgrowths from the foetal lateral nasal wall. These outgrowths form a series of ridges, referred to as "ethmoturbinals" and have several vital functions. Several different turbinate variations have been reported so far. The authors presented 3 patients of coronal clefted concha who were diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging. Computed tomography scans and nasal endoscopic examinations are also performed subsequently. These patients are the first coronal clefted concha cases in the literature and also the first radiological study defining concha cleft...

BACKGROUND: Dentinogenesis imperfecta is a genetic disorder of the dentin occurring during the tooth development. It leads to many structural changes that can be identified clinically (brownish colored teeth, cracked enamel) and radiologically (globular crown, cervical constriction, short roots, and obliterated pulp chamber and/or root canals). The aim of this study was to determine by panoramic radiographs assessment the incidence of dentinogenesis imperfecta in a group of patients attending a specialized maxillofacial imaging center in Paris, France...

Background Investigation of the venous system surrounding a tumor that is invading a dural sinus is of great use for guiding the surgical excision. Non-invasive imaging is often inadequate since enhancement of the tumor causes it to blend with the contrast of the venous vascular structures. Conventional two-dimensional angiography is also often insufficient. Objective The objective of this study was to report regarding the potential of three-dimensional digital subtracted computed tomography angiography (3D DS-CTA) as a technique to preoperatively explore these tumors...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and MRI characteristics of the spectrum of posterolateral corner (PLC) injuries occurring in association with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We carried out a level IV, retrospective case series study. All patients clinically diagnosed with an ACL rupture between July 2015 and June 2016 who underwent MRI of the knee were included in the study. In addition to standard MRI knee reporting, emphasis was placed on identifying injury to the PLC and a description of involvement of these structures by two musculoskeletal radiologists...

RATIONALE: The USPSTF recommends lung cancer screening with low-dose chest CT scans (LDCT) for a well-defined high-risk population. Data on the frequency and impact of incidental findings on LDCT scans performed within a centralized lung cancer screening program has not been reported. OBJECTIVES: Previous studies have reported IFs in the setting of clinical trials. We present our findings in a real clinical setting where the decision to manage these findings may depend on factors that are not captured in a research trial such as disclosing IFs, patient preferences, severity of comorbidities, and physician expertise...

Mahesh K Pillai, Smitha T Nair
A true human tail is a benign vestigial caudal cutaneous structure composed of adipose, connective tissue, muscle, vessels, nerves and mechanoreceptors. A true human tail can be distinguished from a pseudotail as the latter is commonly associated with underlying spinal dysraphism, which requires specialised management. True human tails are very rare, with fewer than 40 cases reported to date. We report a healthy one-day-old male newborn who was referred to the Bharath Hospital, Kottayam, Kerala, India, in 2014 with a cutaneous appendage arising from the lumbosacral region...

Angiosarcoma is a rare type of soft tissue sarcoma that accounts for less than 1% of all sarcomas and only 2% of all primary hepatic tumours. Thorotrast, arsenic, and vinyl chloride monomer are frequently listed as occupational exposure risks. The estimated latency is long (10-40 years) in occupational cases and very long (60 years or more) in non-occupational cases. The symptoms and CT-scan appearance of hepatic angiosarcoma (HAS) are non-specific. We present a case of a 65-year-old Caucasian male with history of cryptogenic cirrhosis, low alpha-foetoprotein levels and a single, 4-cm nodule of potential atypical hepatocellular carcinoma (no washout at MRI and CT-scan) in segment VIII...

CASE: A 51 year old African American Man without significant past history presented with three weeks of persistent cough productive of copious yellow sputum. He denied fevers, chills, hemoptysis, dyspnea, weight or appetite changes, sick contacts, recent travel. On physical examination, the patient was afebrile and appeared comfortable. He had decreased air entry of the left lower lobe with dullness to percussion. A 5x3 cm fluctuant mass was incidentally found on the left anterior chest wall at the level of the 11th rib with yellow expressible exudate at which time the patient reported a minor trauma sustained 3 weeks prior...

OBJECTIVE: Patient perceptions of radiology reports are largely unknown. The objective of the present study is to describe our experience receiving structured feedback from patients on actual radiology reports as a means of improving reporting practices. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eight reports (two for radiographs, two for ultrasound images, two for CT scans, and two for MR images) were randomly selected from our system for review. For each report, patients were asked to rate their level of comprehension, identify any problems in the report, and, in the free-text portion of the feedback form, indicate any questions about the report that they may have...

PURPOSE: Parapharyngeal space (PPS) tumors are rare, accounting for 0.5% of all head-and-neck masses. Surgery remains the standard treatment for most cases, including different approaches (cervical approach, parotidectomy, mandibulotomy, transoral/robotic). We report our experience in the management of PPS tumors, aiming to create a surgical algorithm on the base of tumor's radiological and clinical characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Critical retrospective analysis of patients with PPS neoplasms who underwent surgery at our Institute...

PURPOSE: Recent literature has reported that the ]progression risk of Lenke 5 adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) during adulthood had been underestimated. Surgery is, therefore, proposed more to young patients with progressive curves. However, choice of the approach and fusion levels remains controversial. The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of the length of posterior fusion on clinical and radiological outcomes in Lenke 5 AIS. METHODS: All Lenke 5 AIS operated between 2008 and 2012 were included with a minimum 2-year follow-up...
