AbstractPurposeEctodermal dysplasia (ED) is a congenital syndrome characterized by abnormal development of ectodermal structures, such as skin, hair, nails, teeth, or salivary glands. Patients with ED demonstrate craniofacial dysmorphology, midfacial hypoplasia and hypodontia. The aim of this study is to evaluate volume and surface area of maxillary sinus and craniofacial structures in patients with ectodermal dysplasia (ED) using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images.MethodsThe CBCT images of 20 patients with ED (study group) and 20 healthy individuals (control) which are equal in terms of age and gender were evalua...

AbstractBackgroundRoughly 23% of breast conserving surgery (BCS) patients undergo a second re-excision procedure due to pathologically positive surgical margins. We investigated the feasibility and potential value of micro-Computed Tomography (micro-CT) as a surgical margin guidance tool during BCS.MethodsA cohort of 32 BCS specimens was prospectively imaged with a pre-clinical micro-CT system upon arrival in the surgical pathology laboratory. Reconstructed micro-CT scans were evaluated retrospectively by an experienced breast radiologist, who provided binary determinations whether lesions extended to the specimen margin. ...

ConclusionsSurvival did not differ for PDAC patients with ILNs identified on staging chest CTs compared with those without ILNs. Furthermore, ILN identification did not lead to changes in management of the primary abdominal tumor, questioning the utility of staging chest CTs for PDAC patients.

ConclusionsJejuno-jejunal intussusception with a malignant melanoma metastasis acting as a lead point is very rare. With the gastrointestinal tract being a common location of distal metastases, a medical history of malignant melanoma treatment in cases of small bowel obstruction should raise a suspicion of possible metastatic disease. A computed tomography scan is the diagnostic modality of choice and surgery still remains the standard of care.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewGout is the most common inflammatory arthritis and is increasing in prevalence and incidence in many countries worldwide. Accurate diagnosis is important to direct treatment that may include chronic medication. Burden quantification and treatment monitoring are key in the effective care of patients with gout. This review highlights the positive impact of dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) on the evaluation of gout patients and discusses common imaging artifacts that limit this imaging modality.Recent FindingsDECT has become the most accurate imaging method for confirming or excluding gout. Of n...

CONCLUSIONS: 3% saline demonstrated favourable balance of survival, blood pressure restoration, minimization of inflammation, and prevention of ongoing neurologic injury without contributing to significant physiologic derangements. 23.4% saline administration may not be appropriate in the setting of concomitant hypotension.
