A Nutritionist's Guide to Stocking a Healthy Kitchen
It's no secret that preparing our own meals makes it easier to stick to a healthy-eating plan. You know the ingredients going into your food, and there's no sneaky extra sodium, sugar or calorie bombs hiding in home-cooked meals. That being said, it can also be time consuming to make everything at home, not to mention the time it takes to go to the grocery store if all the elements aren't already in your kitchen. One way to make it a little easier is to ensure that your kitchen is always stocked with what you need -- ingredients that are satisfying to your taste buds and easy to prepare, whether you are enjoying a relaxing day at home on the weekend or just home from a busy day at the office, with no energy to whip up a fancy dinner. Below is a list of some of my favorite products to stock your kitchen, so you're never more than a few feet away from a healthy meal or snack. And rest assured, my selections are 100 percent impartial -- none of the brands featured paid to make my list. For the Pantry Breakfast: Mesa Sunrise cereal Smart Bran Pacific Foods steel cut oats and Modern Oats Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal Snacks: Orgran Essential Fiber Rich Crackers (for 2 crackers, you get 5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and only 40 calories. Put some nut butter or a slice of turkey on top and you have yourself a great snack!) GG Scandinavian Bran Crisp (new honey raisin and pumpkin seed varieties are great!) Natural nut butter: Justin's and Nuttzo are great brands Seasnax C...
CONCLUSIONS: Immunohistochemistry seems to be a promising option not only in clinical recognition, but also in the selection and monitoring of treatment effects. However, these methods have not yet recommended for routine clinical use. PMID: 33032462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Paramagnetic rims might be a characteristic MRI finding for MS, and therefore they have potential as an imaging marker for differentially diagnosing MS from NMOSD using 3-T MRI. PMID: 33029961 [PubMed]
From 5G to a fancy scanner
Background: Controversy exists regarding the need for proximal fibular epiphysiodesis in conjunction with proximal tibial epiphysiodesis to prevent relative overgrowth of the fibula. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of relative fibular overgrowth in patients who had undergone proximal tibial epiphysiodesis with or without proximal fibular epiphysiodesis to manage leg-length discrepancy. Methods: We identified patients who had undergone proximal tibial epiphysiodesis, with or without concomitant fibular epiphysiodesis, followed to skeletal maturity, and with adequate scanograms to measure tibial...
Conclusions: This study demonstrates that there is minimal error due to image acquisition and measurement when using a biplanar slot scanner. Biplanar slot scanning technology tended to underestimate the size of the marker; however, the least accurate measurements only erred by 1.5% from the true length. This indicates that unlike traditional radiographs the sources of error in biplanar slot scanning images are not due to parallax and are likely due to patient-specific factors and rather than the technology itself.
Statins do not decrease coronary artery calcium (CAC) and may increase existing calcification or its density. Therefore, we examined the prognostic significance of CAC among statin users at the time of CAC scanning.
ConclusionsQuantitative lung CT can automatically identify the nature of lung involvement and quantify the dynamic changes of lung lesions on CT during COVID-19. For patients who recovered from COVID-19, GGO was the predominant imaging feature on the initial CT scan, while GGO and CO were the main appearances at peak stage.
Computed tomography (CT) is a critical imaging modality in the emergency department (ED). Many patient evaluations hinge on CT results, and throughput at the scanner is integral to overall department flow. However, the throughput of a CT scanner is affected by many factors. To run efficiently, image orders need to be placed promptly, lab orders often need to be placed and resulted (i.e. creatinine, hCG), results need to be communicated, scans need to be protocoled, patients need to be transported and scanned, and CT images need to be interpreted.
AbstractPurpose of reviewTo highlight imaging features of coronary artery anomalies, especially those that may require surgical intervention, and review various management options.Recent findingsThe clinical presentation of coronary artery anomalies ranges from clinically silent lesions to those leading to sudden cardiac death. With the evolution and increasing use of advanced imaging techniques such as computed tomography, more cases are being identified on scans either done specifically for this purpose or discovered incidentally. Management decisions can be complex and often require a multidisciplinary approach.SummaryI...
AbstractPurposeTo compare the image quality of brain computed tomography (CT) images reconstructed with deep learning –based image reconstruction (DLIR) and adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction-Veo (ASIR-V).MethodsSixty-two patients underwent routine noncontrast brain CT scans and datasets were reconstructed with 30% ASIR-V and DLIR with three selectable reconstruction strength levels (low, medium, high). Objective parameters including CT attenuation, noise, noise reduction rate, artifact index of the posterior cranial fossa, and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) were measured at the levels of the centrum semiov...
