xrayoftheweek 26: dynamic pelvic floor MRI (proctogram)

The latest #xrayoftheweek is a special one linked to a talk I'm giving this morning (or will have given if you are reading this after 1 pm on Wednesday 1st July!) about Pelvic Floor Imaging at the UKRC meeting in Liverpool. This is the UK's largest radiology conference and I am delighted to have been invited to talk about this.

This video is the dynamic evacuation sequence used to evaluate for the presence and degree of prolapse of the pelvic organs. Read on below to learn about what this video shows.

xrayoftheweek 25: why is this woman in pain?

This is a coronal CT reconstruction in someone who attends the emergency department with a short history of severe abdominal pain. On examination, they have diffuse tenderness across the mid and lower abdomen. From these images, can you:

  1. work out what type of surgery they have had in the past?
  2. what is the current problem?

You can scroll through these images on my Radiopaedia upload of this case.

This week's #xrayoftheweek is the type that is loved in radiology exams - there are a number of findings which add up to a story, and it can be worked out all from careful analysis of the x-ray.

Can you work it out?

xrayoftheweek 22: abnormality and differential diagnosis?

It's a slightly tricky chest x-ray for this week's #xrayoftheweek. Can you see any abnormalities on this x-ray, and what is your differential diagnosis?
(hint: the background lung parenchyma looks a little "noisy" but is otherwise normal)
