Goodbye, login. Hello, heart scan

(University at Buffalo) Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer. The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd MobiCom conference.

Authors: Handa H, Gomi D, Fukushima T, Kobayashi T, Sekiguchi N, Sakamoto A, Tsukahara Y, Matsushita H, Sasaki S, Mamiya K, Koizumi T, Ichiyama T Abstract A 63-year-old woman underwent thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid adenocarcinoma and cervical lymph node resection. Pathological analyses revealed the presence of signet cell carcinoma in a resected lymph node, which were apparently different from the pathological findings of thyroid carcinoma. No evidence of a primary tumor could be found elsewhere despite detailed examinations, including esophagogastroduodenoscopy, colonoscopy, capsule endoscopy, CT scan, and f...

BackgroundThere is a strong association between obesity and gallstones. However, there is no clear evidence regarding the optimal order of Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and cholecystectomy when both procedures are clinically indicated. MethodsBased on cross‐matched data from the Swedish Register for Cholecystectomy and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (GallRiks; 79 386 patients) and the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg; 36 098 patients) from 2007 to 2013, complication rates, reoperation rates and operation times related to the timing of RYGB and cholecystectomy were explored. ResultsThere ...

Least significant changes (LSCs) must be calculated and taken into account for sound reporting in longitudinal assessment of body composition by DXA. With informed consent, 2 consecutive whole body scans, with repositioning between them, were performed in 53 pediatric subjects after an overnight fast (29 females; age range 3 to 19years) with a GE Lunar Prodigy densitometer. All scans were obtained by the same skilled technician. Results were analyzed with GraphPad for Windows 6.0, with significance set at P

AbstractAfter introducing a rituximab-containing chemoimmunotherapy (R-CHOP) for diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), a partial response (PR) which is regarded as treatment failure is still observed. To investigate the prognostic factors for the DLBCL patients with a PR to R-CHOP, we retrospectively evaluated 758 newly diagnosed DLBCL patients. After R-CHOP, 88 (11.6%) achieved a PR. Three-year progression-free and overall survival rates measured from the date of PR achievement (PFS2 and OS2) were 57.4 and 67.8%, respectively. The secondary International Prognostic Index (IPI2) scores after R-CHOP were low (0 –1) i...

AbstractPrimary intravascular large B cell lymphoma (IVL) remains a diagnostic challenge because of non-specific clinical, laboratory and imaging findings. The aim of the study was to analyse the major characteristics of IVL with uterine involvement. We retrospectively collected features of IVL with uterine involvement that was proven histologically or demonstrated by significant18FDG uptake on18FDG-PET/CT. Findings were compared to a comprehensive literature review. Five patients were identified. All of them were admitted for fever of unknown origin (FUO), with haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in three cases. None had ...

CONCLUSIONS: We describe a case of RA complicated by a pyopneumothorax after treatment with LEF. The risk of this complication could be reduced by regular chest imaging. PMID: 29033202 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
