Conclusion: All NPC dimensions are meaningfully greater in men except for buccal bone plate thickness in front of Stensen foramen. The type of canal has no effect on dimensions of the canal.
ConclusionsThis case report demonstrates the importance of determining the source of infection in a patient with a spontaneous spinal infection. Even in the absence of a recent dental procedure, dentition should be considered a possible source of infection in an immunocompetent patient who presents with a spontaneous spinal infection.
ConclusionHindfoot alignment can be estimated on MRI but the correlation between the values on HAV radiographs and MR images is only moderate with a tendency to increased positive values (valgization) on MR images.
ConclusionImaging features, patient demographics and tumor location alone are not enough to differentiate tumors of the spindle cell lipoma spectrum from other macroscopic fat-containing benign and malignant tumors, and these entities should be included in the same imaging differential diagnosis.
ConclusionSmaller osseous spurs (
AbstractObjectiveSlipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a hip disorder where the femoral head slips relative to the neck at the physis. Appropriate treatment of SCFE depends on the severity of the slip, commonly categorised using the Southwick (SW) angle. The SW angle is measured in the frog-lateral leg position, which can be painful and potentially unattainable for patients. The purpose of this study is to determine how errors in frog-lateral radiograph positioning affect measured SW angles and slip classifications.MethodsModels of SCFE hips were produced from one CT scan of a normal hip; 360 deformities were created...
ConclusionsSubcutaneous amyloid deposits which cause insulin resistance are typically ill-defined and heterogeneous hypovascular subcutaneous nodules with irregular margins on imaging that correspond to insulin injection sites. It is also characteristic that T2WI shows low intensity compared with fat on MRI, reflective of the amyloid content.
CONCLUSION: The MOCAP system delivered consistently reliable and valid results for standing curvatures compared with a radiographic technique. This system could be used with confidence in research and clinical environments for sagittal spinal curvature measurements. PMID: 29154267 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Li Q, Sun J, Cui X, Jiang Z, Li T Abstract BACKGROUND: A few studies have pointed that trunk extensors may affect the spinopelvic alignment; however, little is known about the exact association between degeneration of lower lumbar paraspinal muscles and spinopelvic parameters. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to analyze the relationship between degeneration of lower lumbar paraspinal muscles and spinopelvic alignment in patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF). METHODS: Thirty-nine OVCF patients were involved in this study. All patients underwent a standing lateral radiographs of ...
Authors: Atsumi K, Saito Y, Kuse N, Kobayashi K, Tanaka T, Kashiwada T, Inomata M, Kokuho N, Hayashi H, Kamio K, Fujita K, Abe S, Azuma A, Kubota K, Gemma A Abstract Objectives Acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF-AE) has been recognized as a fatal pulmonary disorder, but the exact prognostic factors are unknown. The aim of the present study was to analyze the clinical characteristics of patients with IPF-AE and identify the prognostic factors. Methods The medical records of 59 cases of IPF-AE were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical data, laboratory data, radiographic findings, treatment, and ti...
