Moral injury.

MORAL INJURY. Am J Psychoanal. 2017 Oct 30;: Authors: Antonelli M Abstract The devastating effect on the self of moral injury, often a core component of trauma, occurring when one's actions have profoundly violated one's code of ethics, when one has been a victim of such violation, or when one has been a passive witness, has been extensively explored as it has occurred in veterans of the wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Two examples illustrate its prevalence in civilian life. The literature shows violation of expected empathy from and for others, inherent in our nature, is more devastating than violation of the ethical code of our culture or sub-culture, adherence to which becomes urgent as our need emerges to belong to the culture or subculture of which we are a part, values which often contradict our innate sense of "what is right."

Acontroversial study recently published inJAMA Pediatrics has posed possible but largely unfounded links between autism and ultrasound technique and frequency. According to researchers from Boston University School of Medicine, there is a possible correlation between depth of ultrasound penetration during the first and second trimesters and autism. The researchers evaluated sonograms of 420 children, 107 with autism, 104 with developmental delay, and 209 with typical development. They looked at the frequency of ultrasound scans and penetration depth amongst the three groups. They found that mothers of children with au...

A new study from the National Institutes of Health has found that acute stroke patients who undergo MRI are highly susceptible to gadolinium leakage into the eyes. In astudy published inNeurology, the group of researchers led by Emi Hitomi, a post-baccalaureate intramural research training award fellow, evaluated 167 patients who received MRI exams upon being admitted to the hospital. Two hours and/or 24 hours after the MRI, patients underwent a fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging exam. Gadolinium leakage into ocular structures (GLOS) were identified in 76 percent of patients. At the two-hour exam, GLOS occ...
