Week in review: Trampoline injuries | Breast MRI utilization | Adulterated cannabinoids

Dear AuntMinnie member,  

Trampoline-related injuries make up as much as 1.6% of trauma visits at pediatric emergency departments and have become an escalating concern.  

Although radiologists have discussed and documented these types of injuries, there remains a gap in in the comprehensive discussion of “head to toe” imaging in these patients, according to Neetika Gupta, MD, of the University of Toronto.  

Gupta presented a pictorial guide of injuries seen on imaging during a session at the recent American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) meeting. Our coverage of the talk produced the most page views on AuntMinnie.com last week.  

Our second most popular article featured another study at ARRS 2024 that documented a significant increase in breast MRI utilization after the American College of Radiology (ACR) changed its guidelines in 2018. Click here to get all of the details. 

Meanwhile, CT can reveal the negative effects of adulterated cannabinoids, according to researchers from Israel. They reported that suburothelial hemorrhage and intramural bowel hematomas detected on CT imaging were indicative of coagulopathy linked to contaminated cannabinoids. What else did they find?
