Tracheobronchial masses encompass a broad spectrum of entities, ranging from benign and malignant neoplasms to infectious and inflammatory processes. This article reviews the cross-sectional findings of tracheal tumors and tumor-like entities, correlates imaging findings with histologic pathology, and discusses pearls and pitfalls in accurately diagnosing and classifying tracheal tumors and mimics.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: To determine the rate of subsequent publication of education exhibits solicited by RadioGraphics at the 2013 and 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meetings in PubMed-indexed journals. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The 2013 and 2014 RSNA meeting programs were reviewed, and all solicited education exhibits were recorded. The PubMed database was searched from 2013 to 2018 to identify peer-reviewed articles published in PubMed-indexed journals that were based upon 2013 and 2014 education exhibits...

Congenital cystic lesions of the bile ducts represent a spectrum of liver and biliary system lesions, resulting from abnormal embryologic development of the ductal plate. These disorders include Caroli disease, choledochal cysts, autosomal dominant polycystic liver disease, congenital hepatic fibrosis, and biliary hamartomas. Each disorder carries a peculiar clinical presentation, prognosis, and risk of complications. Knowledge of radiological findings of fibropolycystic liver diseases is crucial for their appropriate detection and for differential diagnosis with other similar hepatic cystic lesions, in order to avoid relevant misdiagnosis...

REVIEW

Magnetic resonance imaging is excellent at characterizing pediatric hepatobiliary pathology. Noncontrast MRI is helpful due to T2 hyperintensity associated with bile, but contrast enhancement offers additional means of lesional characterization. In particular, hepatocyte-specific contrast agents such as gadoxetate disodium (Eovist) exhibit partial hepatobiliary excretion which may be leveraged in these contexts. In this review, we will discuss gadoxetate disodium usage, including a sample-imaging protocol, and demonstrate applications and limitations in the pediatric population...

REVIEW
Arvind Vijayasarathi, Richard Duszak
Effective communication is foundational to Radiology. Historically, radiologists have been considered "doctors' doctors," communicating primarily with referring physicians and other radiologists. Aside from interventional radiology and breast imaging, direct communication between radiologists and patients has typically been limited. In recent years, major radiology professional societies have launched initiatives aimed toward increasing direct radiologist and patient communication. These include the American College of Radiology's Imaging 3...

Transitioning from radiology training to academic faculty presents many challenges. In this review, we discuss strategies to navigate this process and to facilitate success through appropriate selection of career tracks. Various modern avenues include roles as a Clinician-Educator, Clinician-Investigator, and Clinician-Administrator. Selection of the appropriate career track based on personal interests and institutional culture is critical for early and long-term career satisfaction.

OBJECTIVE: This study was done to compare parameters of strain elastography (SE) and shear-wave elastography (SWE) for differentiation of benign and malignant breast masses and determine their best cut-offs. MATERIAL AND METHODS: B mode ultrasound (USG), SE, and SWE were performed in 199 breast masses. During SE, 5-point visual elastography score (SEvisual score ) and strain ratio (SEstrain ratio ) were obtained. During SWE, mean and maximum elasticity values in kilopascals, and shear wave ratio were obtained in two orthogonal planes...

REVIEW
Dirk Rehder
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a syndrome of unknown cause that is increasing in frequency. Patients who are typically women of childbearing age and obese present with headaches and may also present with visual changes that may become chronic. The purpose of this review is to describe the possible mechanisms for this disease and also to illustrate the ever increasing role of imaging in the diagnosis of this disorder. In addition, the various methods of treatment including medical and surgical will be reviewed...

Transitioning from radiology residency to academic faculty presents many challenges. In this review, we discuss the importance of introspection and mentorship to successfully navigate this process. Key points include alignment of goals with those of the institution, formation of a mentorship program, and periodic reassessment of career goals. These tips and tools can help make the transition from residency to academic faculty more seamless.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that providing visual-spatial information to radiologists on where radiation has been delivered in an easily accessible way may improve the accuracy of image interpretation and thereby improve quality of patient care. We present a national representation of radiologists' opinions regarding the usefulness and optimal approach for implementing a system to promote access to radiotherapy (RT) plans. METHODS: An anonymous survey was sent to the members of the Association of University Radiologists...

To work well together as a radiology team, understanding of each other's personality would be useful. Personalities are like jigsaw puzzles and when placed together there can be may rewards to the individual, section, department or company. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can be used to help assess individuals on four different dichotomies. It is important to harness the strength of each individual's personality to achieve optimal teamwork in radiology.

Radiologists experience higher than average rates of burnout. Contributing factors include job tedium, a lack of a sense of autonomy, and decreasing compensation in the context of practices closely monitoring relative value unit output. Increasing radiologist efficiency may be a strategy for mitigating burnout, as freeing up time may allow radiologists to focus their attention on the aspects of their job that they enjoy and find most meaningful. In this work we propose several strategies of distraction minimization and time optimization that radiologists may employ to increase their efficiency...

CT technologists, like radiologists, are at risk of increased stress and burnout due to ever increasing clinical and workload demands. To mitigate these issues, radiology facilities need to be prepared to actively address and resolve issues that impact the technologist satisfaction. At our institution, a Process Improvement Committee was formed to identify and alleviate workplace stressors faced by CT technologists. As a result of the initiative, our CT department has evolved into a technologist-driven department in which experienced and effective technologists play a large role in fostering efficient and patient-centered care, while feeling empowered to function as leaders in their work environment...

The increasing age of the US population is increasing the demand for healthcare services for elderly patients. However, elderly patients, particularly those over the age of 75, may encounter unique challenges when seeking healthcare services, including radiological imaging. Radiology practices need to recognize the needs of this cohort and develop strategies to provide elderly patients with compassionate, high quality care. In this article, we highlight obstacles that elderly patients may face in undergoing imaging examinations, and approaches that radiology practices may take in addressing these...
