Perinatal post-mortem ultrasound (PMUS): radiological-pathological correlation

There has been an increasing demand and interest in post-mortem imaging techniques, either as an adjunct or replacement for the conventional invasive autopsy. Post-mortem ultrasound (PMUS) is easily accessible and more affordable than other cross-sectional imaging modalities and allows visualisation of normal anatomical structures of the brain, thorax and abdomen in perinatal...

Diagnostic assessment of foetal brain malformations with intra-uterine MRI versus perinatal post-mortem MRI

PurposeTo evaluate differences in diagnostic yield of intra-uterine foetal (iuMR) and post-mortem MRI (PMMR) for complex brain malformations, using autopsy as the reference standard.MethodsIn this retrospective, multicentre study spanning 2 years, we reviewed 13 terminated singleton pregnancies with a prenatal ultrasound finding of complex foetal cerebral abnormalities, referred...

An alternative approach to contrast-enhanced imaging: diffusion-weighted imaging and T1-weighted imaging identifies and quantifies necrosis in Wilms tumour

ObjectivesVolume of necrosis in Wilms tumour is informative of chemotherapy response. Contrast-enhanced T1-weighted MRI (T1w) provides a measure of necrosis using gadolinium. This study aimed to develop a non-invasive method of identifying non-enhancing (necrotic) tissue in Wilms tumour.MethodsIn this single centre, retrospective study, post-chemotherapy MRI data from 34 Wilms...

The use of whole body diffusion-weighted post-mortem magnetic resonance imaging in timing of perinatal deaths

ObjectivesDiffusion-weighted MRI provides information regarding body water movement following death, which may be an imaging marker of post-mortem interval (time since death; PMI) or maceration (degree of tissue degradation during intra-uterine retention) in perinatal deaths. Our aim was to evaluate the relationship between maceration, PMI and body organ apparent diffusion...
