RLI Now Accepting Scholarship Applications for 2015 Leadership Summit

Radiology residents and fellows who want to advance their careers with the help of the innovative training the Radiology Leadership Institute® (RLI) offers can now apply for one of five scholarships to attend the 2015 RLI Leadership Summit. The Summit will be held Aug. 6–9 at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. The four-day summit, titled Thriving in Changing Times, will include an all-new program to help radiologists learn the skills necessary to understand the new business of health care and how to best adapt and capitalize on these changes. Guided by experts and fueled by facilitators, the summit offers unique opportunities to learn from peers and faculty in an innovative, interactive format. “It is important that young physicians be given the same opportunity as others to rise above their peers and become better providers and leaders,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of the Radiology Leadership Institute and chair of the American College of Radiology Commission on Leadership and Practice Development. “That’s why the RLI Leadership Summit Resident and Fellow Scholarship was developed.” Full scholarships will cover the cost of registration, lodging and travel for recipients to attend the Summit. Anyone interested in applying must be enrolled in the RLI and must be a resident or fellow in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) program. Qualified candidates who have already registered for ...

Authors: Rodenburg RJ, Eskens F Abstract Tivozanib is an oral selective vascular endothelial growth factors receptor (VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is recently approved by the European Medicines Agency for the treatment of previously untreated patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) as well as for those patients with disease progression during or after cytokine therapy. Nowadays, in first-line and second-line treatment of mRCC, there is an abundance of options, mainly consisting of VEGFR-directed tyrosinekinase inhibitors. This review focusses on the role of tivozanib with respect to patient se...

This article describes the genetics of NS/SRNS in childhood and also gives a narrative review of the challenges and opportunities for molecular testing among children with SRNS in Nigeria. For these children to benefit from genetic diagnosis, Nigeria must aspire to have and develop the manpower and infrastructure required for medical genetics and genomic medicine, leveraging on her existing experiences in genomic medicine. Concerted efforts can be put in place to increase the number of enrollees in Nigeria's National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). The scope of the NHIS can be expanded to cater for the expensive bill of ge...

Authors: Shchekochikhin D, Nikiforova T, Shilova A, Nesterov A, Baturina O, Gognieva D, Kozlovskaya N, Syrkin A, Kopylov P Abstract Background: Determining the prognosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is problematic, as the ejection fraction cannot be used. Formulae that estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) may be potential prognosticators for this condition, since renal dysfunction is a well-known predictor of poor outcomes of all forms of heart failure. Methods: A prospective observational study of 117 HFpEF patients (average age 71.6±9.1 years; 65.8% women) who had eGFR de...

Contributors : Ali Mortazavi ; Fairlie ReeseSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensAlternative splicing is widely acknowledged to be a crucial regulator of gene expression and is a key contributor to both normal developmental processes and disease states. While cost-effective and accurate for quantification, short-read RNA-seq lacks the ability to resolve full-length transcript isoforms despite increasingly sophisticated computational methods. Long-read sequencing platforms such as Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) and Oxford Nanopore (ONT) bypass the transcript reconstruction cha...

Conclusions: Plasma presepsin concentrations are independent prognostic factors for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients after return of spontaneous circulation and are correlated with abnormal CD14 and human leukocyte antigen-DR expression on monocytes. Monitoring presepsin levels may be helpful for evaluating the prognosis and impaired innate immune response in the early period after return of spontaneous circulation.

Objectives: We sought to compare the performance of the 2008 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Pediatric criteria for ventilator-associated pneumonia, the 2013 Adult Ventilator-Associated Condition criteria, the new Draft Pediatric Ventilator-Associated Condition criteria, and physician-diagnosed ventilator-associated pneumonia in a cohort of PICU patients. Design: Secondary analysis of a previously conducted prospective observational study. Setting: PICU within a tertiary care children’s hospital between April 1, 2010, and April 1, 2011. Patients: Patients between 31 days and 18 years old, mechan...
