    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is well suited for the noninvasive evaluation of the thoracic vasculature, and with improvements in scanner technology, the ability of MR to illustrate the thoracic vessels has significantly improved. Dedicated vascular software and pulse sequences have become commercially available, and fast imaging, in particular, has facilitated the time-efficient and comprehensive MR evaluation of most thoracic vascular lesions. Over the years, a host of black and bright blood MRI methods have evolved into practical tools for illustration of the thoracic vessels. As with other MR applications, successful vascular depiction relies significantly on the proper selection and prescription of imaging pulse sequences. In this article, these methods with their specific technical and practical pitfalls for thoracic magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) will be discussed. Current clinical indications for thoracic MRA will also be illustrated.

    Title Mr Angiography of the Abdominal Aorta and Peripheral Vessels.
    Date April 2003
    Journal Radiologic Clinics of North America

    Contrast-enhanced MRA can be an accurate and reliable method for the arterial evaluation of the abdominal aorta and peripheral vessels. This technique can be adapted for a variety of anatomic regions. The basic issues relate to proper synchronization of imaging with peak arterial enhancement and to optimization of voxel dimensions for adequate depiction of the arterial structures.

    Title Three-dimensional Phase-contrast Magnetic Resonance Angiography: a Useful Clinical Adjunct to Gadolinium-enhanced Three-dimensional Renal Magnetic Resonance Angiography?
    Date May 2002
    Journal Military Medicine

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the value of three-dimensional (3D) phase-contrast (PC) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) after gadolinium (Gd)-enhanced 3D MRA for renal artery imaging. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with suspected renal artery hypertension were reviewed. All studies included Gd-enhanced 3D MRA and 3D PC MRA. Blinded interpretation of the images was performed for each technique independently and in combination. Conventional X-ray angiography was used for diagnostic correlation when available. RESULTS: Renal artery stenosis was present in 7 (16.3%) of 43 renal arteries, confirmed by X-ray angiography. MRA images demonstrated 100% sensitivity and 74% specificity for Gd-enhanced 3D MRA and 100% sensitivity and 94% specificity for 3D PC MRA. All vessels were diagnosed correctly when both image sets were viewed. CONCLUSION: 3D PC MRA can improve the specificity of renal MRA by decreasing the number of false-positive Gd-enhanced 3D MRA interpretations.

    Title Fibroepithelial Polyps of the Urinary Tract.
    Date April 2002
    Journal Abdominal Imaging

    BACKGROUND: Fibroepithelial polyps of the urothelium are rare but frequently mistaken for transitional cell carcinoma. To better define the demographics, urothelial distribution, and typical gross anatomic and radiologic appearances, we reviewed 41 pathologically proven cases. METHODS: We reviewed 41 cases of fibroepithelial polyps from the archives of the Armed Forces of Pathology. Data were collected from radiographic studies, gross anatomic pathology, and pathology and radiology reports and categorized by age, sex, clinical presentation, lesion size, location, and morphology. RESULTS: The mean patient age was 21 years, and 58% were male. Most presented with hematuria and/or flank pain (68%). Most polyps were located in the upper ureter or renal pelvis (87%). Posterior urethral and bladder polyps were present in children. Most polyps were single or bilobed (73%) and 1-6 cm. CONCLUSION: Because most urothelial tumors are malignant epithelial tumors, fibroepithelial polyps are commonly mistaken for transitional cell carcinomas. However, because fibroepithelial polyps and malignant urothelial tumors typically present in different patient populations, different locations in the urinary tract, and appear different radiographically, distinguishing features between these entities is helpful in determining the differential diagnosis of a urothelial mass. In the appropriate clinical setting, fibroepithelial polyps should be considered in the differential diagnosis, which will affect surgical treatment.

    Title Gastrointestinal Manifestations of Cystic Fibrosis: Radiologic-pathologic Correlation.

    Cystic fibrosis (CF), the most common lethal autosomal recessive disease in white populations, is characterized by dysfunctional chloride ion transport across epithelial surfaces. Although recurrent pulmonary infections and pulmonary insufficiency are the principal causes of morbidity and death, gastrointestinal symptoms commonly precede the pulmonary findings and may suggest the diagnosis in infants and young children. The protean gastrointestinal manifestations of CF result primarily from abnormally viscous luminal secretions within hollow viscera and the ducts of solid organs. Bowel obstruction may be present at birth due to meconium ileus or meconium plug syndrome. Complications of meconium ileus include volvulus, small bowel atresia, perforation, and meconium peritonitis with abdominal calcifications. Older children with CF may present with bowel obstruction due to distal intestinal obstruction syndrome or colonic stricture, and tenacious intestinal residue may serve as a lead point for intussusception or cause recurrent rectal prolapse. Radiologic studies often demonstrate thickened intestinal mucosal folds in older children and uncommonly show colonic pneumatosis, peptic esophageal stricture due to gastroesophageal reflux, and duodenal ulcer. Appendicitis due to inspissated secretions is uncommon. Obstruction of ducts and ductules produces exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, pancreatitis, cholestasis, cholelithiasis, and cirrhosis with portal hypertension. On imaging studies, the pancreas is commonly small and largely replaced by fat, sometimes displays calcifications, and is rarely replaced by macrocysts. Radiologic features of hepatobiliary disease include an enlarged radiolucent liver from steatosis, gallstones, a shrunken nodular liver, splenomegaly, and portosystemic collateral vessels. With the improved survival of CF patients, an increased risk for developing gastrointestinal carcinomas has been established, many occurring as early as the 3rd decade.
