Magnetic resonance imaging of the adrenal glands

Seminars in Ultrasound, CT, and MR
Nomdo S Renken, G P Krestin


Differentiation of pathologic alterations of the adrenal glands is still a frequent and challenging problem of daily practice in radiology. Two main groups of patients have to be differentiated: those with clinical symptoms, mainly of endocrinopathies, and those in which a mass of the adrenal gland is detected incidentally. In the first group, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays a minor role, although it allows to detect and often even differentiate the cause of the disease. In the second group, MRI has an excellent performance in differentiating between adenomas and non-adenomatous lesions of the adrenal glands.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
