Lateral Patellar Tilt

The role of patellofemoral malalignment in anterior knee pain has been shown by many investigators. Detection of lateral displacement was the sole purpose of earlier studies until Laurin et al. introduced the concept of patellar tilt as a form of malalignment. This tilt could be observed even with the patella completely reduced in the femoral groove, and was therefore independent of the mediolateral position of the patella.

Paraduodenal Hernia-CT

Intestinal obstruction is a common clinical condition that is usually suspected on the basis of clinical signs and patient history. Internal hernias are rare cause for intestinal obstruction. Para duodenal hernias constitute approximately 53% of all internal hernias

Endolymphatic Sac tumour-CT & MRI

Papillary endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) are destructive, hypervascular lesions that originate from the retrolabyrinthine part of the temporal bone. Most papillary ELSTs are seen only sporadically,but cases with von Hippel-Lindau disease have a higher risk of papillary ELST development than the normal population. In the differential diagnosis of ELST,other tumors of this region like jugular paragangliomas, choroid plexus papillomas, metastatic tumors, meningiomas and acoustic neurinomas can be considered.
This is a post operative case of ELST proven on biopsy with residual tumour as seen. This is an exremely rare tumour and is put up on the blog for teaching purposes.

Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis-MRI

PVNS is sometimes difficult to diagnose, this case reveals extensive frond like synovial thickening, along with hemosiderin staining and T2 hypointense loose bodies confirmed on GRE sequences. Note the Black Synovium.

Partially thrombosed aneurysm versus thrombosed false lumen

Sometimes it is difficult to differentitate thrombosed false lumen from partially thrombosed aortic aneurysm as in this case. In this case the clue is peripherally placed intimal calcification which may suggest more likely possibility of partially thrombosed aneurysm.

Cervical Dermal Sinus-MRI

Congenital dermal sinuses are epithelium-lined tracts that extend from an opening in the skin through deeper tissues. Most dorsal congenital dermal sinuses are located in the lumbosacral area; a cervical location is unusual. This is a 13 year old girl patient.

Radiology 2.0

"Web 2.0" refers to a second generation of web development and design, that facilitates communication, secure information sharing, interoperability, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. Web 2.0 concepts have led to the development and evolution of web-based communities, hosted services, and applications such as social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashup and folksonomies. Radiology in the Web 2.0 probably refers to things like globalization, teleradiology, clinical decision support software, social networking sites dedicated to radiology, Radiology centric blogs and wikis etc. Also concepts like PACS, DICOM and HIPAA again somewhere refer to the impact of web 2.0 on radiology popularly known as Radiology 2.0.

Radiology related podcasts, RSS feeds from Table of contents of journals, and search engines like yottalook also form our current outlook of Radiology 2.0. To me Radiology 2.0 is about user friendly approach, interactivity and interoperatibility.

Stress Reaction of the Lumbar Pars Interarticularis-MRI

Injury to the lumbar pars interarticularis (spondylolysis) is reported to be a common cause of low back pain in young patients. High-field-strength magnetic resonance imaging using fat saturation techniques and dedicated coil technology is sensitive in detecting bone stress injuries of the lumbar pars interarticularis, and thus is an excellent method for diagnosis.
