Anal and perianal region is a commonly affected area in the course of several inflammatory, infectious, and neoplastic diseases. Several imaging modalities may be used in imaging evaluation of this area and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) emerges as the imaging modality of choice due to its superb soft tissue resolution. MRI is not only useful for initial detection of anal/perianal pathologies but also in the follow-up of these disorders. In this article, we aimed to illustrate MRI findings of several diseases affecting this area including perianal fistula as well as anal fissure, hypertrophic myopathy of internal anal sphincter, hidradenitis suppurativa, pilonidal sinus, rectovaginal/anovaginal fistula and anal canal carcinoma...

PURPOSE: Congenital mirror movement disorder (CMMD) is characterized by unintended, nonsuppressible, homologous mirroring activity contralateral to the movement on the intended side of the body. In healthy controls, unilateral movements are accompanied with predominantly contralateral cortical activity, whereas in CMMD, in line with the abnormal behavior, bilateral cortical activity is observed for unilateral motor tasks. However, task-related activities in subcortical structures, which are known to play critical roles in motor actions, have not been investigated in CMMD previously...

A 56-year-old female with past medical history of thrombotic microangiopathy presented to her physician with nonspecific abdominal pain. A magnetic resonance imaging scan was obtained, which revealed a 3.1 cm mass arising from medial lower pole of the left kidney that was subsequently shown to be renal cell carcinoma by percutaneous biopsy. Because of her history of thrombotic microangiopathy and other comorbidities, she was deemed a nonsurgical candidate and was therefore referred to interventional radiology for thermal ablation...

N-butyl cyanoacrylate glue is well established as a transcatheter or direct injection embolic agent. Herein, targeted glue embolization was performed by direct needle injection into peripheral portal branches and along the surface of the liver to directly treat actively extravasating portal venous injury. In both cases, hemodynamically unstable patients underwent exploratory laparotomy, which was not able to definitively treat the hemorrhage. Subsequently, emergent visceral angiography and indirect portography revealed active portal phase extravasation...

Aortic intramural hematoma (IMH) is a pathologic process with a clinical presentation identical to aortic dissection and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Radiologists must be familiar with the imaging appearances of IMH as computed tomography (CT) plays a critical role in both diagnosis and patient management. The course of IMH is variable and the process may regress, remain stable, or progress in extent and therefore imaging findings associated with a negative prognosis must be recognized and included in the formal radiology report...
