Perforating vasculature channels upon placement of implants in anterior mandible: thoughts?

The anterior mandible in #22-27 area have a lot of vasculature and anastomoses of the sublingual and submental arteries penetrating into the bone as seen on these CT scan images

Conclusions: Our review revealed the low use of evidence-based practices for acute stroke care in LMIC. The true use in hospitals that do not conduct this research is probably even lower. Strategies to evaluate and improve health system performance for acute stroke care, including implantation of stroke units and making thrombolysis more available and affordable are needed in LMIC.

Publication date: 2018Source: NeuroImage: Clinical, Volume 20Author(s): Luca Presotto, Leonardo Iaccarino, Arianna Sala, Emilia G. Vanoli, Cristina Muscio, Anna Nigri, Maria Grazia Bruzzone, Fabrizio Tagliavini, Luigi Gianolli, Daniela Perani, Valentino BettinardiAbstractThe reference standard for spatial normalization of brain positron emission tomography (PET) images involves structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data. However, the lack of such structural information is fairly common in clinical settings. This might lead to lack of proper image quantification and to evaluation based only on visual ratings, which do...

Medmo, a unique name-your-price imaging service, is helping patients access affordable MRIs and other imaging services by matching them to imaging centers within their budget.  The New York-based startup’s platform is designed to help patients with high deductibles or no insurance find low-cost scans and imaging centers fill up empty slots in their schedule.Medmo could be paving the way for a whole new pricing concept in the healthcare industry. Since the platform works by connecting patients with imaging centers that might have last minute openings, users can pay discounted rates as low as $225 for an MRI and $...

CONCLUSION: The present study suggested that the repair effect of nasal mucosa-derived MSCs in orbital fracture is achieved by facilitating the expressions of osteogenic markers Runx2, OCN, OPN and BSP. However, the pathways of actions are unknown and further studies are required to elucidate the concrete mechanism. PMID: 30018713 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Egr1 has an important regulatory effect on the dynamic equilibrium of the chondrocyte extracellular matrix, which may be achieved through the PPARγ/RUNX2 signaling pathways. PMID: 30018705 [PubMed]

Abstract PURPOSE: Although inverse-planned intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) may allow for more conformal dose distributions, it is unknown whether using these technologies reduces cardiac or pulmonary toxicity of breast radiotherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A randomized controlled trial compared IMRT-DIBH versus standard, free-breathing, forward-planned, three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy in patients with left-sided, node-positive breast cancer in whom the internal mammary nodal region was targeted. Endpoints included dosimetric parameters and changes in pul...

ConclusionsOur quantitative analysis of recurrence patterns suggests that a larger 3 mm uniform expansion of the SRS target volume substantially increases coverage of the volume that is later occupied by the recurrent tumor and may provide improved local control. The extent of the preoperative tumor in the target volume or expanding the target volume from the meninges provides little benefit.

AbstractPrevious studies have shown that employing the low dose computed tomography (CT) technique based on low tube potential reduces the radiation dose required for the coronary artery examination protocol. However, low tube potential may adversely influence the CT number of plaque composition. Therefore, we aimed to determine whether quantitative atherosclerotic plaque analysis by a multi-slice, low radiation dose CT protocol using 80 kilovolts (kV) yields results comparable to those of the standard 120  kV protocol. Artificial plaque samples (n = 17) composed of three kinds of plaque were scanned at ...

Conclusion3D printed jigs hold promise in total knee arthroplasty. Their use in total knee arthroplasty in the presence of retained hardware is useful for the surgeon. They have also showed promise in improving prediction of component sizing and improving mechanical alignment of the knee. Further studies with longer follow up and larger sample size will help in establishing their role in total knee arthroplasty.
