* Since 1 day periumbilical pain radiating to RLQ.
* CRP 75, leucocytes 18.000.
What do you see? Appendicitis? Diverticulitis?
13-year-old girl with knee pain for 2 months.
What do you see?
Periphyseal (both knees) hyperintensity on sagittal fat suppressed T2 Weighted image (a) and Proton Density Weighted image (b) and hypointensity on sagittal T1Weighted image (c) (arrows).
FOPE: Focal periphyseal edema
– Mostly around the knees
– Both genders can be affected during skeletal maturation
– Painful manifestation of physiologic physeal fusion
* With flank pain
* Increased inflammatory parameters
* Decreased kidney function
Why is the right kidney less dense than the left?
Obstructive kidney stone in the right proximal ureter (arrow) with secondary hydronephrosis
The increased pressure in the collecting system slows the ultrafiltration of urine and causes a slower enhancement of the right kidney in comparison with the left kidney, reflecting the impaired kidney function
* Blunt force trauma of the abdomen
* Patient is hemodynamically stable
What do you see?
* Linear zone of hypodensity through the pancreatic body on both phases
* Surrounding fluid with relatively high-density retroperitoneal AND intraperitoneal
Note that the pancreas may appear normal in 20%-40% of patients when CT is performed within 12 h after trauma
MRCP may be useful to evaluate the integrity of the pancreatic duct
* Complete laceration of the pancreatic body: AAST Grade III
* Require surgery within 24h
* Possible complications: fistula, pseudocyst, pancreatitis, abscesses, hemorrhage, pseudo-aneurysm
* Usually, injuries of other organs as well
Treatment in this case: distal pancreatectomy and closing of main pancreatic duct transsection, discharge to hospital in home country after 2 weeks
