BOOK REVIEW. Pediatric Neuroimaging, 4th ed. A. James Barkovich, ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams &. Wilkins: pages, illustrations, $ Barkovich Pediatric Neuroimaging 4th Fourth Edition [PDF] [EPUB] Foundations of Orientation and. Mobility Third Edition Volume II Instructional. This newest addition of the comprehensive Pediatric Neuroimaging combines thousands of images Author(s): A. James Barkovich MD, Charles Raybaud MD.

Advances in coil design have improved signal-to-noise and we now use multichannel head and spine coils. This necessitates the creative modification of pulse sequence parameters in order to optimize the soft-tissue contrast between anatomical and pathological structures. During the process of myelination on T1-W images the signal from white matter goes from dark to bright.

For a variable period the subcortical white matter becomes isointense with grey matter. We prefer this sequence to the more conventional T2-W fast or turbo spin-echo sequences, for reasons of increased lesion conspicuity.

However, we recognize that similar tissue contrast may be achieved if such fast spin-echo sequences are modified using increased TR and TE to compensate for the increased water content in this age group. The additional brain water is difficult to suppress and we do not find the fluid-attenuated inversion recovery FLAIR technique useful in this age group as lesion conspicuity is poor.

Open image in new window Fig. The most dramatic decrease in ADC values occurs within the first few months of life and the greatest changes are seen in the frontal and parietal white matter [ 8 ]. Failure to appreciate the normal changes with age of the ADC will result in the erroneous reporting of white matter abnormality particularly in the neonatal period.

Factors influencing sequence choice For any imaging protocol, it is the specific combination of sequences that determines the diagnostic efficacy of the examination. It is clear that imaging protocols vary between institutions.

This is largely because rapid advances in imaging technology and variations between manufacturers, applied in the context of investigating relatively rare disorders, precludes an effective evidence-based approach to sequence choice. The main advantages that MRI offers over alternative imaging modalities is the ability to demonstrate different tissue contrasts principally T1-W, T2-W and spin density, but also flow and diffusion in multiple imaging planes principally sagittal, coronal and axial.

White matter involvement occurs from a posterior-to-anterior and central-to-peripheral manner, mimicking the normal maturation progression of myelination.

Put another way, the demyelination process occurs in the same manner, or progression, as the progression of normal myelination. Initial imaging studies may reveal an immature myelination pattern that does not progress to a more mature pattern on subsequent examinations.

The corpus callosum may be thinned and diffuse white-matter volume loss and basal-gangliairon deposition is also seen Figure 9.

Infantile, juvenile and adult forms of the disease are recognized. Initially described in children of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, it may be seen in other populations as well. The globi pallidi are also characteristically involved,showing high signal on T2 Figure Infants usually come to the attention of their parents or physicians because of increasing head circumference either because of the presence of the mass or resultant hydrocephalus.

However, signs of increased intracranial pressure are rare given that the calvaria is capable of expanding without restraint via sutural widening. Neonatal tumors are usually larger at the time of discovery, disproportionately malignant in histology and behavior, and carry a dismal prognosis. Tumors discovered in the prenatal period are more likely to be fatal. The multiplanar capability of MRI allows the most productive evaluation of the brain, neoplasm and mass effect.

Teratoma Arising from all 3 germinal layers, teratomas are heterogeneous masses that may be intracranial or extracranial. Intracranial teratomas tend to be supratentorial. Skull-base or extracranial tumors may or may not extend intra-cranially. Growth is along the path of least resistance. Astrocytoma Astrocytoma is a tumor of the astrocytic line of glial cells of the brain or spinal cord.

Although hydrocephalus and increased head circumference are typically seen, they are not always present Figure Choroid plexus papilloma and carcinoma This intraventricular tumor leads to overproduction of CSF and subsequent hydrocephalus.

Because it arises from the choroid plexus, the tumor is extremely vascular, leading to intense enhancement with contrast material.

The carcinoma type of the choroid plexus neoplasm can invade brain parenchyma Figure An understanding of basic brain embryology provides the basis for a more thorough understanding of these pathologic processes.
