Left ventricular thickening and the role of MRI

MRI is an essential part of the comprehensive evaluation of left ventricular (LV) thickening. This article reviews not only the aetiologies and pathophysiology of LV thickening, but also illustrates the importance of MRI in its evaluation.

Identifying non-malignant oesophageal diseases

It is important to recognise non-malignant oesophageal diseases; however, they can easily go unnoticed or be misdiagnosed radiologically. With this paper, the authors aim to cover the important clinical features and imaging findings of non-malignant pathology of the oesophagus.

Forget me not: the hippocampus

This pictorial essay describes the anatomy and pathology of the hippocampus, which—although it is a small but complex structure in the brain—plays an important role in spatial and episodic memory. The article explains the best imaging strategy for the evaluation of the hippocampus and describes the imaging appearance of the most common anatomic variants and pathologic conditions that can affect the hippocampus.

Imaging of plantar fascia disorders

This review article exemplifies simple and systematic guidelines for imaging assessment of plantar fascia disorders, with a focus on key findings detectable on plain radiography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
