Abstract

Conjoined twins are rare and pose a challenge to radiologists and surgeons. Craniopagus twins, where conjunction involves the cranium, are especially rare. Even in large pediatric centers, radiologists are unlikely to encounter more than one such event in their medical careers. This rarity makes it daunting to select a CT and MRI protocol for these infants. Using the experience of two tertiary pediatric hospitals with six sets of craniopagus twins, this multidisciplinary and multimodal integrated imaging approach highlights the key questions that need addressing in the decision-making process for possible surgical intervention.
