Pastor-Santoveña, P. Mesa-Blanco, J.C. López-Fernández, P. Serrano-AguilarAbstractIntroduction and objectiveImaging diagnosis is essential for treatment planning in stroke patients. However, use of these techniques varies due to uncertainty about their effectiveness. Our purpose was to describe the use of CT and MRI in stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) over 5 years in hospitals be...

Through 3D X-ray micro computed tomography (μ-CT) inspection and reconstruction of pores in the alloys, the pore-scale simulation of tensile fracture was carried out and the stress distribution around pores during the tensile was calculated. The tensile resu...

Abstract An eleven-year-old boy presented with fever and hip pain, with limited mobility of the right side of the hip. Computed tomography scan revealed an increased volume of the right coxo-femoral joint, requiring surgical drainage of purulent secretion, from which Salmonella enterica was isolated. After four weeks of treatment with third-generation cephalosporin, he was discharged with a favorable evolution. Invasive disease caused by Salmonella spp represents a small proportion of salmonellosis cases, although it is responsible for greater rates of hospitalization, morbidity and mortality. Children under 5 years, elder...

This work was undertaken to evaluate the effects of power ultrasound (25 kHz) on the nutritional properties of germinated oats, and the microstructure of oat groats after treatment. The changes in the external and internal microstructures of the ultrasou...

We describe the development of psychosis in a 48-year-old man, initially hospitalised on the neurology ward due to syncope. A ct scan of the brain showed bilateral, symmetrical calcification of the basal ganglia and nucleus dentatus. Laboratory research excluded other pathological disorders. The patient was referred to a psychiatric ward, where the administration of risperidone led to alleviation of his mental state. This case report underlines the importance of an accurate, comprehensive differential diagnosis and the associated significance of neuroimaging. PMID: 30640406 [PubMed - in process]

CT alone often lacks the sensitivity to identify micro-APAs. ...

We report the case of a 29-year-old-woman presenting with recurrent pneumonia for 5 years. A CT scan of the chest revealed poor vascular formation in the lower region of the right lung. The pulmonary sequestration was treated by embolization of the anomalous branch.

By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — Here’s another reason why getting a good night’s sleep should be on your must-do list: Sleeping fewer than six hours a night or waking frequently raises your risk of developing damaging plaque in arteries throughout your body, not just your heart. Previous research has shown poor sleep to be strongly associated with coronary heart disease, but “This is the first study to show that objectively measured sleep is independently associated with atherosclerosis throughout the body,” José Ordovás, director of nutrition and genomics at the Jean Mayer USDA H...
