Reductions in High-End Imaging Utilization With Radiology Review and Consultation

Journal of the American College of Radiology

2016 Following the uptake of value-based purchasing in concert with health care reform in the United States, providers, insurers, and patients are looking for ways to reduce excessive, dangerous, and/or inappropriate high-end imaging utilization (HEIU). Inappropriate HEIU is associated with patient safety risks due to unnecessary exposure to radiation, misappropriation of scarce equipment resources and staff, complications to clinical care, and needless, excessive costs for the patient, hospital, and payer. This paper presents a cost-effective radiology-initiated improvement program piloted in the Christiana Hospital Coordinated Care Network.

Multimodality imaging of biliary malignancies.

Surgical Oncology Clinics of North America

2009 Detection, accurate staging, and optimal management of biliary malignancies continue to present a significant challenge. This article reviews the current capabilities and roles of the various imaging modalities available in clinical practice, followed by a discussion of their integrated use at initial presentation, particularly with respect to potential surgical management of central hilar and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. The main imaging modalities include MRI, CT, ultrasound, positron emission tomography, and conventional cholangiography. Alternative and emerging imaging methods, problematic diagnostic imaging issues, and other rarer bile duct malignancies are also briefly discussed.

Clostridium Difficile Colitis

Learning Radiology

2008 General Considerations • Characterized by pseudomembrane, a yellowish-white plaque seen on the mucosa • Usually involves colon, although small bowel can be involved • Occurs primarily in hospitalized patients ○ Almost 20% of hospitalized patients acquire C difficile during hospitalization • Occurs in adults, especially the elderly, more often than children • Almost always secondary to antibiotic therapy with overgrowth of Clostridium difficile, a gram-positive, anaerobic bacillus normally present in about 2-3 % of healthy adults

Glioblastoma Multiforme Causing Calvarial Destruction: An Unusual Manifestation Revisited

American Journal of Neuroradiology

2004 Summary: This report describes invasion of overlying calvaria and soft tissues by a high-grade glioma without macroscopic evidence of dural involvement. The initial radiologic examinations demonstrated a heterogeneous mass in the right frontoparietal region with both extra- and intra-axial components. Inward displacement of the adjacent dura initially prompted consideration for extra-axial lesions such as metastatic lesions, lymphoma, or an aggressive meningioma. The pathologic findings demonstrated a glial cell origin.

MR imaging of airway obstruction in infants and children

International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology

2001 Accurate diagnosis is important in the evaluation of airway disorders of infants and children. Today, multiple imaging techniques are available to evaluate the pediatric airway. In general, it is best to start with simple and readily available examinations, which may provide a diagnosis in most cases, and progress to more sophisticated studies such as MR imaging. We performed magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of 45 infants and children with symptoms of airway obstruction, 14 of 45 patient symptoms were related to masses of the airway and 31 of 45 patient symptoms were related to vascular compression.
