Manual tactile sensation, digital radiograph, and multidetector computed tomography: An in vitro study.

Conclusion: Working length measurement with MDCT scan and other two conventional methods does not show significant difference in measurement. Use of newer 3D imaging technique is useful in root canal treatment for measuring working length.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To study the relationship between structural damage and inflammatory features on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or radiography and other risk factors [anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) and/or rheumatoid factor (RF) seropositivity, hand dominance, disease duration] and the presence or number of cortical interruptions in finger joints on high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT). METHOD: Finger joints of 38 healthy subjects and 39 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were examined through radiographs, MRI, and HR-pQCT. Radiographs were scored accord...

Conclusion Lateral radiographs of the knee are insufficient for evaluation of the posterior cortical integrity following primary ACL reconstruction. Direct visualization of the femoral tunnel remains the gold standard for evaluation of the posterior wall and may be supplemented by CT scan if there remains concern over graft fixation.

Pallav Mahesh Patni, Pradeep Jain, Sumeet Jain, Hemalatha Hiremath, Rolly Agarwal, Mona Jain PatniJournal of Conservative Dentistry 2018 21(1):105-108Treating pathological defects that are caused by resorption in teeth can be challenging. The task is complicated further if the resorption extends beyond the restrains of the root. The aim of this report is to describe a case of extensive internal tunneling resorption (ITR) associated with invasive cervical resorption (ICR) in a maxillary right lateral incisor and its nonsurgical treatment. A 22-year-old male was referred to the department of endodontics with a chief complain...

AbstractAn index case of Legionnaires ’s disease with mediastinal adenopathy prompted us to review our recent experience with Legionnaires’ disease to determine the incidence of mediastinal adenopathy of this finding in Legionnaires’ disease. We reviewed the radiographic findings of 90 hospitalized adults with Legionnaires’ dise ase from 2015 to 2017. Excluded were 11 patients with mediastinal adenopathy due to non-Legionnaires’ disease causes, e.g., lymphoma. Thirty-seven of the remaining patients had both chest films and chest computed tomography (CT) scans. Of the 37 Legionnaires’ dis...

AbstractObjectivesMalreduction in the axial plane (malrotation) following tibial fracture surgery is often undiagnosed. A few clinical and radiographic methods have been proposed for measuring tibial rotation intraoperatively, yet have failed to match the accuracy of computed tomography (CT). The aim of this study was to develop radiographic tools for future intraoperative assessment of the tibial shaft rotation profile.MethodsThe setting was a laboratory computerized analysis. Twenty lower limb CT scans were used to construct a three-dimensional (3D) model using AMIRA © software. A virtual 3D cylinder was implanted i...

Authors: Moffa AP, Stoppino LP, Loizzi D, Milillo P Abstract Pericardial cysts are rare benign anomalies generally discovered as incidental findings on radiographic images. Rarely, pericardial cysts cause symptoms and may lead to complications. A 56-year-old woman presented to the emergency department for mild chest pain. A cardiovascular and respiratory examination revealed no abnormalities, while a chest X-ray and subsequent thoracic computed tomography (CT) showed a pericardial cyst. The patient refused both percutaneous treatment and thoracic surgery. Three years later, a thoracic CT scan showed that the perica...

ConclusionsWhile our results find that LAG+BMA provided highest fusion rate, most material options analyzed in this study provide comparable fusion outcomes. The ideal graft option must incorporate a combination of materials with osteoconductive, osteoinductive, and osteogenic properties. Our results represent the robust and dynamic nature of the current state of lumbar graft technology.Graphical abstract These slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1627464Schatzker introduced one of the most used classification systems for tibial plateau fractures, based on plain radiographs. Computed tomography brought to attention the importance of coronal plane-oriented fractures. The goal of our study was to determine if the addition of computed tomography would affect the decision making of surgeons who usually use the Schatzker classification to assess tibial plateau fractures. Image studies of 70 patients who sustained tibial plateau fractures were uploaded to a dedicated homepage. Every patient was linked to a folder which contained two radiogr...

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2018 Source:The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery Author(s): Natalie Coriaty, Katherine Pettibone, Nicholas Todd, Shannon Rush, Ryan Carter, Colin Zdenek Shortening of the first ray is a potential complication associated with first metatarsal procedures. Correction of this deformity conventionally has required the use of a tricortical bone graft to lengthen the bone. Graft complications, including donor site morbidity, poor graft stability, and graft resorption, have revealed a need for an alternative procedure. The present report shows that titanium cage scaffolding has lower...
