Conclusions Our study demonstrates that with increasing BMI there is a greater distance between the skin surface and the muscle fascia of muscles that are targeted for injection in standard chronic migraine botulinum toxin injection protocols. Because of this, patient body habitus may be an important factor in injection technique.

Rothwell, Thomas E. Nichols, Mark JenkinsonAbstractWhite matter hyperintensities (WMH), also known as white matter lesions, are localised white matter areas that appear hyperintense on MRI scans. WMH commonly occur in the ageing population, and are often associated with several factors such as cognitive disorders, cardiovascular risk factors, cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Despite the fact that some links between lesion loc...

Particularly, blend (F-Bl) and bilayer (F-Bi) films based on grey triggerfish skin gelatin (G) and agar (A), incorporated or not with vine leaves ethanolic extract (VLE), at 5 and 10 mg/mL, were prepared using the casting method. First, VLE presented an important antioxidant potential evaluated by the iron (Fe2+) chelating activity, ferric (Fe3+) reducing antioxidant power, β-car...

  Adaptiiv’s 3D-printed boluses are printed from material that has a uniform thickness and conforms to patient anatomy. (Image courtesy of Adaptiiv.) Adaptiiv Medical Technologies said that the U.S. military will use its 3D bolus software to treat American veterans with cancer at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Adaptiiv designed its software to convert patient CT scan data into a digital model that can be used to print a bolus that conforms to patient anatomy, according to the company. The structure is then exported as an STL file that can be printed in a matter of hours on a healthcare f...

ChurbanovAbstractGlasses of Ge25-xGaxTe75-yIy system with gallium content of 5–15 at.% and iodine of 0–6 at.% have been prepared. The glass transition temperature, crystallization and melting temperature of the samples in the range 100–400 °C were determined by differential scanning calorimetry. In Ge15Ga10Te75-yIy system, the crystallization stability of glasses is extremely dependent on composition, taking the maximum value...

This study was emphasized on the effects of magnetic content addition on the bioactive glass properties. As the need arises, we study synthesized magnetic bioactive glass physical, rheological, and biocompatible properties. The morphology and composition of these glasses were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The particle size was also determined using a laser particle size analyzer (LPSA). The thermal measurements were put through using Differential thermal analysis (DTA). In order to evaluate the in-vitro bioactivity of synthesized...
