Large New Study Reveals Rates of Brain Abnormalities in Healthy Children

A large study of brain MRI scans from 11,679 children between the ages of 9 and 10 reviewed by UC San Francisco neuroradiologists identified potentially life-threatening conditions in 1 in 500 children, and more minor but possibly clinically significant brain abnormalities in 1 out of 25 children. 

A Less Invasive, Less Expensive Treatment for Spinal CSF-Venous Fistulas

A recent paper showed percutaneous fibrin glue injections can be an effective treatment for spinal CSF-venous fistulas. Authors included Mark Mamlouk, MD and William Dillon, MD.
