WernerAbstractSnapping biceps femoris is a rare phenomenon in which the biceps femoris tendon subluxates over the fibular head when the leg is brought into deep flexion. Two primary pathologies have been identified: biceps insertion tears/anatomic variants and/or an enlarged fibular head. Often, it can be treated nonoperatively; however, if symptoms are severe enough and refractory to conservative treatments, the underlying pathology can be corrected surgically to alleviate symptoms. The diagno...

Discussion Cerebral cortex development is an extremely complex process overall. Our current understanding is incomplete and constantly changing as our understanding of genetics and the processes each gene controls emerges from scientific research. Neural cells are produced in the subventicular zone of the pallial or dorsal germinal epithelium. They then differentiate and migrate radially or tangentially to the cerebral cortex and organize themselves to function. Malformations of cortical development (MCD) is a heterogeneneous group of disorders that cause defective cortical development. These disorders are broadly catego...

AbstractSummaryThe incidence of atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) was 2.95% among 6644 hip and femoral fractures. Independent risk factors included the use of bisphosphonates (BPs), osteopenia or osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, increased femoral curvatures, and thicker femoral cortices. Patients with AFFs and BP treatment were more likely to have problematic healing than those with typical femoral fractures (TFFs) and no BP treatment.IntroductionTo determine the incidence and risk factors of atypical femoral fractures (AFFs), we performed a multicenter case-control study. We also investigated the effects of bisphosphon...

CONCLUSIONS: Tungsten sheet appeared to be effective as an alternative shielding material, sufficiently reducing the doses behind the SPP packets to less than 20% when compared with sheetless packets in all of the six sites examined. PMID: 30028195 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The conversion factor established for scattered ambient radiation was 0.05 μSv per mAs at 1 meter. This factor is 3-fold lower than the conversion factors reported previously. PMID: 30028183 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

By SAURABH JHA Medical Imaging and the Price of Corn After the Napoleonic wars, the price of corn in England became unaffordable. The landowners were blamed for the high price, which some believed was a result of the unreasonably high rents for farm land. Economist David Ricardo disagreed. According to Ricardo, detractors had the directionality wrong. It was the scarcity of corn (the high demand relative to its supply) that induced demand for the most fertile land. That is, the rent did not increase the price of corn. The demand for corn raised the rent. Rent was a derived demand. Directionality is important. Getting direc...

ConclusionsWe have detailed the range of normal appearances of the ring apophyses of the developing cervical spine. Cervical spine apophyseal injury is thought to be rare, but knowledge of normative morphological features should help in this diagnosis.

ConclusionThe prevalence of radiological glenohumeral OA was higher in the diabetes group with the Samilson –Prieto classification systems, but not associated with clinical OA. The interrater agreement was moderate. We recommend the Samilson–Prieto Allain classification for glenohumeral OA to avoid interpretation of osteophytes

The use of imaging modalities for the diagnosis and assessment of knee osteoarthritis progression has increased dramatically in the last two decades [1]. Although radiography is the most commonly applied imaging modality for the diagnosis and longitudinal assessment of patients in the primary care setting, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a major advanced imaging tool for the characterization of knee osteoarthritis in the research setting [1, 2]. MRI provides detailed characterization of associated soft-tissue damage, including synovitis, articular cartilage loss, and meniscal lesions, as well as osseous structu...
