Abstract: Radiologic Technologists have a prominent role in the evaluation of the injured patients. Even though time spent with patients may be short, opportunities for informal patient education may arise. Sharing knowledge of anatomical structures, injury patterns and the reasoning behind certain radiologic views and studies can help patients to understand the process they must submit to—including, for example why they might have to get into an uncomfortable or painful position for any given study. Offering a short list of possible injuries can also sometimes help skeptical patients understand the need for diagnostic imaging. Finally, detailed knowledge of the patterns of injury and associated anatomy and radiographic findings can help in the sometimes-challenging task of obtaining high-quality images that clearly delineate the most relevant structures for radiologic interpretation.

Author:  Marina Liem, MD

Abstract: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI or MR) presents unique and complex safety issues in medical imaging that all medical imaging technologists should be cognizant of. The electromagnetic, thermal and biological effects stemming from the strong magnetic fields warrant special safety considerations. Gadolinium-based contrast has different properties from iodinated contrast and a high safety profile. However, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a serious debilitating complication in renal impaired patients that is unique to gadolinium-based contrast. Special personnel categories in the MR environment include pregnant patients and healthcare personnel and emergency response and security personnel.

Abstract: Aortic pathologies are relatively rare compared to other cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarctions; however, they may be fatal to patients affected by them unless treated without delay. Damage to the aorta may be a result of trauma or other risk factors. Imaging is an effective tool in the detection of aortic pathology, and the initial assessment of its severity. This information may inform the type of treatment appropriate for the individual patient. Following the administration of therapy, these patients require regular monitoring and assessment. Imaging is also often a main component of this long-term follow-up. Techniques associated with the visualization of aortic pathology include MRI, CT and ultrasound. In addition, some forms of molecular and functional imaging may have potential in the assessment of aortic disease. This article will describe some examples of aortic pathology and how the analyses of different imaging techniques result in their quantification and visualization.

Abstract: This article is intended to deliver an overview of brain pathology and how it relates to neuroimaging. Imaging techniques have improved and advanced the development of neurology for the last few decades. Currently, modalities such as positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography are standards in the diagnosis and analysis of neuropathology. This article will outline their roles in this for common events such as traumatic brain injury and ischemic stroke. Additional pathologies will also be described and outlined in terms of imaging. As modern imaging techniques may also influence treatment choices, and responses to treatment, the treatment of these pathologies will also be outlined. This article will also discuss the roles of standard forms of CT and MRI in neuropathology, as well as some of their more up-to-date variations. It is intended to contribute to the ongoing education of radiologic technologists.

Author: Deirdre O'Donnell, M.Sc.

Abstract: Kidney pathology results in damage to the tissues of this organ, and affects its ability to perform its vital functions. This damage, if allowed to progress untreated, reduces kidney function over time. This is known as chronic kidney disease, and may be associated with a number of risk factors. Chronic kidney damage increases the risk of kidney failure. This must be treated with life-changing procedures, the most well-known of which are transplantation and dialysis. Transplantation may increase the risk of other forms of kidney disease in turn. The conditions and diseases that may contribute to chronic kidney disease must be diagnosed and monitored regularly. Imaging can play an important role in both. This article will outline various types of kidney pathology and how they are detected by various types of imaging.

Authors: Karen Vieira, PhD, MSM & Deirdre O'Donnell, M.Sc.

Abstract: Mass casualty is a term referring to when a high volume of patients visit a care facility in the same space of time. It may be related to extreme events carrying a high risk of severe injury such as natural disasters, incendiary attacks or military combat. Many patients involved in such events may emerge with life-threatening injuries in need of immediate attention. Others may be left with trauma that is not life-threatening, but can have long-term effects on life quality and functional status. The process of categorizing these patients in terms of priority for emergency care is known as triage. Imaging is an effective strategy in determining the severity of trauma. This article will describe triage and the roles played by imaging in assessing patients presenting with trauma that may result from mass casualty. It will also describe the evaluation of treatment for a severe trauma, and how imaging relates to this.

Abstract: In recent decades, therapeutic advances and advances in medical imaging have fueled improvements in survival in a variety of hematologic malignancies, including various types of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. In concert with these advances, knowledge of lymphoma types and subtypes has exploded, and differing classification systems are in use. While detailed knowledge of lymphoma is, of necessity, mostly the jurisdiction of specialists, there are several key definitions, concepts and distinctions which have emerged that are of great relevance to medical imaging. These include defining characteristics of Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, patterns of lymph node involvement, and the role of PET/CT and other imaging modalities in diagnosis, staging, and assessment of treatment response.

Authors:  David Neumann, MSLIS, MS & Cynthia Patrick, MS, R.T. (R)

Abstract:  Computed tomography (CT) procedures are presently responsible for more radiation exposure to patients than any other imaging modality, largely due to the increase in the number of scans performed. In recent years CT imaging protocols have been developed which enable the acquisition of diagnostically appropriate images while reducing the radiation dose that patients are exposed to, consistent with the radiation safety principle of As Low As Reasonably Achievable. Changes to protocols for radiation dose reduction in CT include reducing tube voltage, tube current, or both, while using improved image reconstruction software algorithms to maintain sufficient image quality. Several examples of recently published lower-dose CT protocols are investigated in detail.
