Augmented Reality System Lets Doctors See under Patients' Skin without the Scalpel

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.

CONCLUSION: In LAO patients, directly proceeding EVT following IVT may not be hesitated. In addition, while LAO patients with incomplete IV-tPA treatment responses result in transient improvement of neurological symptoms but later reversed, EVT may be a potential rescue therapy in carefully selected patients.

AbstractThe purpose of this study is to create a new pseudo-computed tomography (CT) imaging approach under superposed ultrasound (US) deformation fields based on step-by-step local registration. Scanned CT and US 3D image datasets of three patients with postoperative cervical carcinoma were selected, including CT (CTsim) and US images (USsim) acquired during simulated positioning process and cone beam CT (CBCT) and US images for positioning verification (USpv) acquired after treatment for 10 times. Regions of interest such as urinary bladders were segmented out and accepted local registration to obtain different deformati...

Shokunbi, Augustine A. Adeolu, Amos O. AdeleyeAbstractBackgroundCurrent prognostic models for head injury were developed using data mostly from high income countries. A more useful model may be obtained from predictors designed from data obtained from low and middle income countries where trauma is said to be a neglected endemic condition.MethodsThis prospective study, after ethical and institutional clearance, examined 19 clinical and Computerize...

Computed tomography, or CT scanning, is one of the most powerful diagnostic tools to emerge during my medical career. Just look at the detail in the brain images above, taken at 90-degree angles through the brain. And I was there at the beginning. I remember well when I was a medical student taking neurology, and the first CT scanner arrived at the Mayo Clinic. By today’s standards, it was incredibly crude. It displayed a tiny image on a cathode ray tube that was then photographed with a Polaroid camera. Preservative lacquer was then smeared on the photograph and it was pasted into the patient’s chart with glue...

Authors: Cappell MS, Hader I, Amin M Abstract AIM: To systematically review liver disease associated with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), propose reasonable contraindications for liver transplantation for liver failure in HLH, and report an illustrative case. METHODS: Systematic review according to PRISMA guidelines of hepatic manifestations of HLH using computerized literature search via PubMed of articles published since 1980 with keywords ("hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis" or "HLH") AND ("liver" or "hepatic"). Two authors independently performed literature...

ConclusionCIH is a rare condition due to embryologic developmental abnormalities. Their diagnosis is based on pathognomonic findings on computed tomography scanner (CTscan). Surgical treatment is the mainstay treatment. Delay diagnosis of strangulated CIH is associated with significant morbidity andmortality.

CONCLUSION: Presence of air causes more heterogeneous bladder wall temperatures and lower T90, particularly for larger air pockets. The size of air pockets must therefore be minimized during bladder hyperthermia treatments. PMID: 30303415 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Tokunaga K, Okamoto M, Watanabe K Abstract We investigated the accuracy of measuring implant orientation after THA in standing position using EOS system (EOS Imaging Inc., Paris, France). Ninety patients who underwent THA were subjected to this study by comparing angles measured by EOS system and those measured from CT scans using 3D image analyzing software, ZedHip (LEXI, Tokyo, Japan). The radiographic cup inclination and anatomical cup anteversion were measured with respect to the anterior pelvic plane (APP) coordinate. The femoral stem antetorsion was analyzed by measuring the angles between the stem n...
