Endovascular coiling of large mastoid emissary vein causing pulsatile tinnitus
The association of large mastoid emissary veins and pulsatile tinnitus has been reported. However, therapeutic options for this condition remain limited. We report a case of endovascular coiling of a large mastoid emissary vein in a patient with disabling pulsatile tinnitus with significant improvement of symptoms. To our knowledge, endovascular coiling of large mastoid emissary vein causing pulsatile tinnitus has not been reported.

Multidector Row computed tomography in Maxillofacial Imaging
Multidetector row CT (MDCT) offers superior soft tissue characterization and is useful for diagnosis of odontogenic and nonodontogenic cysts and tumors, fibro-osseous lesions, inflammatory, malignancy, metastatic lesions, developmental abnormalities, and maxillofacial trauma. The rapid advances in MDCT technology, including perfusion CT, dual-energy CT, and texture analysis, will be an integrated anatomic and functional high-resolution scan, which will help in diagnosis of maxillofacial lesions and overall patient care.

Carlos Arellano, Senior Administrative Director of Otolaryngology and Radiology, is a recipient of the BMC’s Be Exceptional Award in Growth. Winners of this award demonstrate exceptional performance and dedication to fulfilling BMC’s mission and QUEST goals. These individuals also demonstrate initiative, teamwork, competence and embody BMC’s values of RESPECT.
Ali Guermazi, MD, PhD, professor and vice chairman of academic affairs is the recipient of Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) Clinical Research Award for his outstanding work in the field of imaging.
He is the first radiologist to receive this honor. His research interests include musculoskeletal diseases and in particular identifying structural risk factors for developing and worsening osteoarthritis.
The award was presented during the Opening Ceremony at the OARSI World Congress in Liverpool, England, on Friday, April 27. The OARSI Clinical Research Award recognizes excellence in clinical research related to osteoarthritis in areas such as epidemiology and health services research, clinical outcomes, translational research and therapeutics, encompassing all phases of research having clinical implications. OARSI is the premier international organization for scientists and health care professionals focused on the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis through the promotion and presentation of research, education and the worldwide dissemination of new knowledge.
Dr. David Bates is interviewed by RadioGraphics editor Dr. Jeffrey Klein on how Radiology addresses the issue of the opioid epidemic. The interview references the article published in RadioGraphics titled “Acute Radiologic Manifestations of America’s Opioid Epidemic” which was co-authored by several BU Radiologists.
The article titled “Craniofacial Manifestations of Systemic Disorders: CT and MR Imaging Findings and Imaging Approach” discusses imaging approaches for early detection of various systemic diseases or conditions that affect the maxillofacial bones.
The Ignition Awards granted by BU’s Technology Development Office validates early-stage technologies that demonstrate commercial, medical, and/or societal impact. Dr. Anderson’s research project titled “Engineering materials toward imaging enhancement and clinical applications” aims to improve magnetic resonance imaging methodology.”
Dr. Lee Goldstein, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and research partner with Radiology, has been cited by several major news outlets for his relevant research into CTE.
