Neurocognitive assessment in patients with a minor traumatic brain injury and an abnormal initial CT scan: can cognitive evaluation assist in identifying patients who require surveillance CT brain imaging? - Clements TW, Dunham M, Kirkpatrick A, Rajakumar R, Gratton C, Lall R, McBeth P, Ball CG.

BACKGROUND: Evidence for repeat computed tomography (CT) in minor traumatic brain injury (mTBI) patients with intracranial pathology is scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of clinical cognitive assessment (COG) in defining the need...

A 52-year-old woman with a history of neurogenic bladder requiring daily intermittent catheterization, and end-stage renal disease secondary to reflux nephropathy underwent uncomplicated deceased donor kidney transplant. Postoperative course was notable for recurrent urinary tract infections causing allograft dysfunction, as evidenced by an elevated creatinine level. The patient was treated for urosepsis on several occasions with an escalating regimen of antibiotics. A noncontrast computed tomography scan (Figure  1) was performed to evaluate for transplant pyelonephritis.

CT scans of thylacine specimens are being used to investigate why they resembled dogs despite last sharing an ancestor 160m years agoJoeys of thylacines, or Tasmanian tigers, look much like the young of every other marsupial: bald, pink, and with pronounced forelimbs and jaws for crawling into their mother ’s pouch and latching on to a teat.So it ’s perhaps not surprising that, in the 200-year history of collecting and cataloguing various thylacine specimens for museum exhibits, there has been a bit of a mix-up.Continue reading...

Authors: Pawlewicz K, Szutkowski Z, Kawecki A Abstract Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the trachea is a relatively rare tumor among thoracic diseases. The present study reports the case of a 23-year-old woman with ACC of the trachea who underwent surgical resection of the tumor in The National Institute of Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases (Warsaw, Poland). Histopathological examination revealed that the tumor was not completely resected (R2 resection) and strict observation of the patient was therefore prescribed. After ~9 years of follow-up, clinical and histopathological tumor progression was confirmed and the pa...

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is currently one of the most effective methods for minimally invasive treatment of hepatic tumors. Planning the probe placements is an essential and challenging step in RFA treatment. To completely destroy the tumor with minimum amount of affected native tissue, a new RFA planning system is proposed in this paper. In the proposed planning system, the minimum number of ablations and a conical insertion region for each ablation session are determined automatically. Based on the geometric character of the tumor, a novel clustering algorithm is developed to allow a better layout of the overlapping...

Conclusions ML utilizing qCT could discern distinct mechanisms driving FEV1 decline in BOS and non-BOS LTx patients and predict eventual onset of BOS. This approach may become useful to optimize management of LTx patients.

AbstractPurposeWe investigated prospectively whether18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) can predict the overall survival (OS) of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) previously treated by molecular targeted therapies.MethodsBetween 2009 and 2016, 81 patients who had received single molecular targeted therapies (43 sorafenib, 27 sunitinib, 8 temsirolimus and others) and were scheduled for second line molecular targeted therapies for advanced RCC were enrolled in this prospective study. FDG PET/CT was performed after first line molecular targeted therapies, t...

We report the case of a 75 years old man submitted to traditional EVAR for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. He presented a late type II endoleak 6 months after operation, initially without sac enlargement. One year later, a CT scan control demonstred a sac expansion> 10 mm, also responsible of a secondary proximal type I endoleak. The patient was submitted to transarterial embolization of lumbar arteries through left internal iliac artery, followed by type I endoleak correction with a proximal cuff deployment.

Diffraction imaging is an X-ray imaging method which uses the crystallinity information (cell parameter, orientation) as a signal to create an image pixel by pixel: a pencil beam is raster-scanned onto a sample and the (powder) diffraction signal is recorded by a large area detector. With the flux provided by third-generation synchrotrons and the speed of hybrid pixel detectors, the acquisition speed of these experiments is now limited by the transfer rate to the local storage as the data reduction can hardly be performed in real time. This contribution presents the benchmarking of a typical data analysis pipeline for a di...
