Stress Cardiomyopathy Secondary to Pheochromocytoma: A Case Report

Catalina Jaramillo, Danai Kitkungvan, Laura Ocacio and Daniel Ocazionez

Stress cardiomyopathy (SCM) mimics acute myocardial infarction, it’s part of the Myocardial Infarction with Non-Obstructive Coronary Artery (MINOCA) differential and occurs after emotional or physical stress. Left ventricle ballooning results in acute heart failure.

Trigeminal Nerve Neurofibroma Presenting as Facial Swelling in Two 3-year-olds

Jonathan Ferro, Stephen J Sozio, Lilun Li, Sudipta Roychowdhury, and Sri Hari Sundararajan

The trigeminal nerve (cranial nerve V) serves a pivotal role in sensory and motor functions within the head and neck. Although trigeminal schwannomas are the most common subtype of cranial nerve tumoral pathology, other peripheral nerve-based tumors can also be encountered, with neurofibroma remaining one of the top considerations in the differential diagnosis of a trigeminal nerve-based lesion.

Neena David, Achala Donuru, Samantha P. Zuckerman, Sophia R. O’Brien, Anupma Nayak, Tetsuro Araki, Dongming Xu and Arun C. Nachiappan

Hyperdense pleural metastasis is rare, noting that high-density foci in the pleural space are commonly benign. We present a case of a 76-year-old female with past medical history of multicentric breast malignancy treated 5 years prior, who presented with unexpected weight loss.

Welcome Note

Journal of Medical Imaging and Case Reports (MICR) is dedicated to clinical and medical research intrinsic to all imaging modalities, including optical, ultrasound, magnetic resonance, x-ray computed tomography, nuclear imaging for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

With increasing diagnostic capabilities of medical imaging techniques, the number of imaging-based procedures is increasing globally. Effective, safe, and high quality imaging is important for medical decision-making and can reduce unnecessary procedures. Through publication of rigorously peer-reviewed scholarly communications, MICR will become a world-class scientific journal and an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals across different therapeutic and research areas.

In view of the rapid advances in medical imaging research, we promise short turnaround time for peer-review process. A manuscript will receive initial review comments and editorial decision within few weeks. Our goal is to publish accepted manuscripts within 6-8 weeks of initial submission.
