Iodinated contrast agents administered during computed tomography (CT) studies have the potential to cause post-contrast acute kidney injury (AKI). Prior to CT scans, in certain populations, assessment of the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is required to identify patients at risk for adverse events after contrast administration.

Pulmonx has some additional ammunition in its bid to get its severe emphysema treatment valve FDA approval. The Redwood City, CA-based company released positive one-year-results from the LIBERATE pivotal trial of the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve, which shows the study met all primary and secondary endpoints in treating emphysema patients. Emphysema falls under the umbrella of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is characterized by damage to the walls of the lungs between the air sacs, according to the National Emphysema Foundation. This damage causes the sacs to lose their shape and often, the destruction of tho...

Authors: Schmidt W, LiArno S, Khlopas A, Petersik A, Mont MA Abstract Due to the differences in bone morphology between demographics such as age, gender, body mass index, and ethnicity, the development of orthopaedic implants requires a large number of anatomical data from various patient populations. In an effort to assess these demographic variations, Stryker Orthopaedic Modeling and Analytics (SOMA) has been developed. SOMA is a suite of tools which utilizes a comprehensive database of computed tomography scans (CT-scans), plus associated three-dimensional (3D) bone models, allowing the user to assess population...

van Holst et  al. (1) used [18F]flouro-levo-diphenylalanine ([18F]DOPA) positron emission tomography (PET) to study individuals with and without pathological gambling (PG). They report that the PG group, as compared with the healthy control (HC) group, demonstrated higher dopamine synthesis capacity in three st riatal regions (the caudate body, dorsal putamen, and ventral striatum) and that dopamine synthesis capacity in two striatal regions (the caudate head and dorsal putamen) correlated with gambling-related distortions in the PG group.

The ideal method to assess the success of repair of mitral valve repair per-operatively  is to use Intra operative TEE (trans esophageal echocardiography). It gives excellent images and does not interfere with the sterility of the operating field. Newer scanners with live 3-D (4-D) reconstruction of images gives the ‘surgeon’s view’ both from the atrial and ventricular aspects. This makes assessment of residual mitral regurgitation very easy. Surgeon can even revise the repair if needed as the chest is still open. Now most cardiac anaesthesiologists are trained in getting good trans esophageal image...
