Multimodality Evaluation of Fetal Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and its Mimics
Ana Mitchell, MD; Simran Sekhon, MD; Kriti Gwal, MD; John McGahan, MD
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: November 1, 2022   •   Expiration Date: October 31, 2023
A variety of intrathoracic masses may present in the fetus and present as a mimic to congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Knowledge of their locations, ultrasound characteristics, and MRI findings helps limiting the differential diagnosis and guiding treatment. Jointly provided by IAME and Anderson Publishing Inc., this activity is designed to educate radiologists about fetal intrathoracic masses and distinguishing imaging features that will help in guiding management. Knowledge of the ultrasound and MRI features of these masses will help in differentiate these masses from congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Once this diagnosis can be made ultrasound and MRI may also be used to predict residual pulmonary tissue and other findings, such as liver herniating into the thorax, which will help guide fetal and neonatal therapy.

Abdominal and Pelvic Imaging of Transgender Patients
Elainea N Smith, MD; Mohammad Ghosheh, MBBS; Kristin K Porter, MD, PhD
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: July 1, 2022   •   Expiration Date: Junel 30, 2023
The abdominal radiologist plays an important role in providing care for transgender and gender-diverse patients, regardless of whether these patients choose to pursue gender-affirming hormone therapy or surgery. Radiologists must be aware of the various treatment options and associated anatomic and pathologic changes in transgender patients to ensure accurate imaging interpretation. This activity is designed to educate radiologists about caring for transgender patients by reviewing relevant imaging findings of hormonal therapies, nonoperative procedures, and gender-affirming surgeries with a focus on abdominal and pelvic imaging. Creating an inclusive environment for transgender patients is also discussed.

Trauma Imaging in Pregnancy: A Review of the Evolving Appearance of the Placenta on CT and Mimics of Placental Injury
Kaitlin M Zaki-Metias, MD; Mehrvaan Kaur, MD; Huijuan Wang, MD; Bilal Turfe; Nicholas Mills, MD; Yanruo Lu, MD; Bashir H Hakim, MD; Leslie S Allen, MD
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: May 1, 2022   •   Expiration Date: April 30, 2023
Pregnant patients infrequently undergo CT given the risk of radiation to the developing fetus. As such, when CT is performed on pregnant patients in emergent situations, radiologists may be unfamiliar with the appearance of the placenta on CT and its normal evolution throughout gestation. This activity is designed to educate radiologists about the normal appearance of the placenta on CT and its evolution throughout pregnancy, as well as differentiation of these ļ¬ndings from placental abruption.

As thrombectomy has become the standard of care for large vessel/arterial occlusions, the indications are initiated by proper imaging and understanding of the brain blood flow physiology. This two-part series examines the standard of care for acute stroke imaging and the latest techniques. The second part of this activity on stroke intervention will appear in the November-December issue of Applied Radiology.

Ovarian Masses and O-RADS: A Systematic Approach to Evaluating and Characterizing Adnexal Masses with MRI
Ana Mitchell, MD; Austin Kwong, MD; Simran Sekhon, MD; John P McGahan, MD, FACR
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: July 1, 2021   •   Expiration Date: June 30, 2023
Given that ovarian and adnexal masses are commonly encountered in daily clinical practice, it is important to be able to recognize worrisome features on MRI. Once these are identified, it is important to accurately classify ovarian masses according to criteria ranging from low-risk to high-risk lesions. Recognizing and categorizing ovarian masses is important for determining that no further treatment or imaging is required for benign or low-risk lesions. Similarly, recognition of a worrisome feature and proper classification of high-risk masses are necessary to permit appropriate referral of these patients to a surgical oncologist.

Elbow Effusion: Utility and Limitations of Radiography in Pediatric Injuries
Sachin S Kumbhar, MD
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: May 1, 2021   •   Expiration Date: April 30, 2023
Fractures of the elbow are one of the commonest pediatric injuries. Some of these fractures can be occult on initial radiographs, an elbow effusion being the only initial finding. Elbow effusion can be detected on an adequately obtained lateral radiographic projection of the elbow by identifying the visibility and shape of the anterior and posterior fat pads. To maximize the accuracy of detecting elbow effusions, radiologists should be aware of conditions that can affect the visibility of these fat pads.

An Overview of Acute Mesenteric Ischemia
Arash Mirrahimi, MD, MSc; Charlotte Gallienne, MD; Hournaz Ghandehari, MD, FRCPC
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: January 1, 2021   •   Expiration Date: December 31, 2023
Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a true surgical emergency and a rare life-threatening condition, accounting for 0.01% of hospital admissions, with extremely high mortality rates (up to 69%). Poor outcomes remain prevalent despite advances in both diagnostic and treatment options over the last two decades
Early diagnosis and management are particularly important given that the highest incidence of AMI occurs in the elderly population, who often have multiple comorbidities leading to a worse prognosis. Biphasic contrast enhanced multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) images have become the mainstay and standard of care for investigation and timely diagnosis of AMI.
As such, the importance of recognizing imaging features of AMI and timely communication of findings with the referring physicians is of utmost importance for diagnostic radiologists and always a worthwhile topic for review. We have therefore endeavored to provide a brief summary of the presentation of AMI, its causes, relevant anatomy, and most importantly, illustrated review of CT findings that delineate ischemic changes of the bowel and mesentery.
