Augmented reality system lets doctors see under patients' skin without the scalpel

(University of Alberta) New technology is bringing the power of augmented reality into clinical practice. The system, called ProjectDR, allows medical images such as CT scans and MRI data to be displayed directly on a patient's body in a way that moves as the patient does.

Conclusions: QCT metrics demonstrate stronger correlations with FEV1 and are better predictors of pulmonary function than SQS. SQS performs moderately well in bilateral LTx, but poorly on unilateral LTx. In unilateral LTx, QCT metrics from the transplanted lung are better predictors of FEV1 than QCT metrics from the nontransplanted lung.

AbstractPurposeUsing a cementless femoral stem in total hip arthroplasty (THA), optimal filling of the proximal femoral metaphyseal volume (PFMV) and restoration of the extramedullary proximal femoral (PF) parameters (i.e., femoral offset (FO), neck length (FNL), and head height (FHH)) constitute key goals for optimal hip biomechanics, functional outcome, and THA survivorship. However, almost 30% of mismatch between the PF anatomy and implant geometry of the most widely implanted non-modular cementless femoral stem has been demonstrated in a computed tomography scan (CT scan) study. Therefore, this anatomic study aimed to ...

Pancreatic schwannomas are uncommon. About 60% of pancreatic schwannomas develop cystic lesions, and the differential diagnosis from other cystic pancreatic tumors is difficult. A 43-year-old man presented for evaluation of liver dysfunction detected during a medical checkup. Blood testing detected obstructive jaundice. A computed tomography scan revealed a well-defined polycystic tumor of about 5 cm at the pancreatic head. We performed surgical resection to treat the patient ’s symptoms and facilitate long-term management. Histopathological examination revealed spindle-shaped cells. Immunohistochemical studies showe...

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...
