Among the renal cystic diseases that result in end-stage renal disease, an important hereditary cause is medullary cystic kidney disease, which affects adults in an autosomal dominant pattern. It is characterized by progressive renal failure, tubulointerstitial fibrosis, and formation of small cysts in the renal medulla and corticomedullary junction. While the appearance of medullary/corticomedullary cysts may not be pathognomonic for medullary cystic kidney disease, encountering a patient with renal failure and medullary/corticomedullary cysts should prompt further investigation, given the implication of having the disease. Genetic testing can be used to identify potential renal donors as well as identify affected individuals in order to control risk factors for chronic renal disease that may mitigate the progression of the disease process. The treatment of choice is renal transplantation.

Congenital cardiovascular malformations (CCVM) may cause infrequently airway pathologies (AP) in children and are of prognostic and therapeutic relevance. While computed tomography (CT) is considered ...
An 8-year-old male presented to the pediatric emergency department with subjective fever, blurry vision, and left eye pain. On physical examination, there was mild left lower lid erythema and a subtle...
Comparison of F18-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography and Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging as Markers of Graft Viability in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.
F18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (F18-FDG PET/CT) can be used to assess changes in the metabolism of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft as it is undergoin...
Detection of focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is of paramount importance in epilepsy presurgical evaluation. Our study aims at utilizing quantitative positron emission tomography (QPET) analysis to comp...
Hybrid positron emission tomography-magnetic resonance (PET-MR) imaging is a novel imaging modality with emerging applications for cardiovascular disease. PET-MR aims to combine the high-spatial resol...

The initial staging of locally advanced prostate cancer is made with Computed Tomography scan (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and bone scan (BS). For this type of cancer, referenc...
The purpose of this study is to compare whole body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, whole body positron emission tomography (PET)/MR imaging, and (if available) PET/Computed Tomography (CT...
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare 2 different types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Researchers will compare diffusion-weighted imaging (a method to show how wate...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as magnetic resonance imaging, may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This clinical tr...
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED). (From Lane & Sharfaei, Modern Sectional Anatomy, 1992, Preface)
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).
The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
