Radiographic Assessment of the presigmoid retrolabyrinthine approach.
CONCLUSION: The presigmoid retrolabyrinthine approach is uniquely confined. Variations in temporal bone anatomy can have dramatic impacts on the operative time, risk profile, and final exposure. Preoperative assessment is critical in guiding the surgeon on the appropriateness of approach. Preoperative measurement of Trautmann's triangle, petrous slope, and aeration can help to reduce surgical morbidity. PMID: 28713632 [PubMed]
We report the case of a patient with a Dieulafoy lesion within a duodenal diverticulum, showing the radiographic images. In this case the use of radiological techniques was of great help for diagnosis, bearing in mind that bleeding from this lesion may be intermittent and had not been revealed by the first endoscopic procedure. Since strong clinical suspicion persisted of active upper GI bleeding an angio-CT scan was performed, which allowed to orient diagnosis and rule out other causes of bleeding inaccessible to endoscopy.

In this study, radiation doses were measured using three paediatric phantoms for head and chest CT examinations in Najran, Saudi Arabia.
AbstractCemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) is the most common benign fibro-osseous lesion of the jaws and generally considered non-neoplastic and self-limited. Here, we present a 30-year old female who noticed a bilateral swelling of her posterior mandible with irregular periapical mineralization and incomplete root resorption on panoramic radiographs. A biopsy revealed florid COD and no further treatment was initiated. 9 years later, she presented with a progressive expansion of her left posterior mandible after being treated for bilateral breast cancer 4 and 8 years before. CT scans showed expansile and densely mineralized ...
The purpose of the present study was to analyze the difference in frontal plane rotation of the entire first ray in patients with and without hallux valgus using standing weightbearing computed tomography (CT). 10 feet of 10 patients with hallux valgus and 36 feet of 36 patients without hallux valgus were examined. Standing weightbearing CT scans and radiographs were taken for all subjects. Frontal plane measurements of the sesamoid apparatus, first metatarsal head, first metatarsal base, and medial cuneiform were performed.
We report three patients with history of fever and different clinical signs. During the height of the pandemic in Italy (March to May 2020), these patients underwent chest computed tomography (CT) scans that showed lung alterations typical of COVID-19 with multiple negative RT-PCR tests and positive serology for SARS-CoV-2.
CONCLUSION: This strategy contributed to a low consumption of hospital resources and proved safe in this series. PMID: 32931727 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Discharged patients from fangcang shelter hospital demonstrated a high extent of lung abnormalities on CT within the first week from symptom onset, peaked at 2nd week, followed by persistence of high levels and a prolonged median disease course. GGO was the predominant pattern in week 1, consolidation and mixed pattern in 2nd week, whereas GGO and reticular patterns in later stages (≥4 weeks). PMID: 32922173 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionMiddle-aged people are at significant risk for attempting suicide by jumping from a height in Brazil, independently of gender, with 67.6% deaths. Traumatic brain injury, higher ISS, and more than 3 skeletal injuries are independent variables related to this fatal outcome. Acute complications occur in approximately 50% of survivors. Middle-aged men, foot and ankle injuries, open pelvic injuries, and open fractures are risk factors for complications.
Chest CT scan and chest x-rays show characteristic radiographic findings in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. Chest x-ray can be used in diagnosis and follow up in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. The study a...
This report highlights our approach and management for patients with severe NP caused by multidrug ‐resistant microorganisms including timing to perform surgery and choice of antimicrobial treatment. AbstractWe report the case of a 53 ‐year‐old male that presented to our hospital with a history of a brain tumour. He was hospitalized 10 days prior in another hospital. Before surgery, he complained of mild cough. Routine chest radiography demonstrated right upper lobe consolidation which was diagnosed as hospital‐acquired p neumonia. Broad‐spectrum empirical antimicrobial was initiated. After surgery, his cl...
