The purpose of this session is to review sporadic and genetic cystic renal disease in children through the new lens of a more complete understanding of the underlying pathophysiology and pathogenesis of these conditions. The correlation of imaging findings and pathologic features will be emphasized. Also in this session, hepatobiliary tumors unique to children will be reviewed with emphasis on radiologic-pathologic correlation and distinguishing features that narrow the differential diagnosis. Developed in conjunction with American Institute For Radiologic Pathology.
Describe the underlying cause of cystic renal dysplasia, briefly explain the term ciliopathy and how inherited cystic diseases are related, and distinguish between different types of cystic renal diseases on imaging.
Describe the imaging approach to a child with a suspected liver mass.
List the distinguishing features of common pediatric liver tumors, and recognize and apply those features to provide an appropriate imaging diagnosis of pediatric hepatobiliary tumors.
