Surgeons call on HoloLens during reconstructive surgery

In a recent case study published in  European Radiology Experimental, surgeons at St. Mary’s Hospital in London used Microsoft HoloLens to overlay images of CT scans onto patients'legs during reconstructive lower limb surgery.

Conclusions. We present our results in a question and answer fashion in order to make reading more interesting. RESULTS: PA should be searched in all high-risk populations. The gold standard for diagnosis PA is the plasma aldosterone/plasma renin ratio (ARR). If this test is positive, then we proceed with one of the four confirmatory tests. If positive, then we proceed with a localizing technique like adrenal vein sampling (AVS) and CT scan. If the lesion is unilateral, after proper preoperative preparation, we proceed, in adrenalectomy. If the lesion is bilateral or the patient refuses or is not fit for surgery, we tr...

Statement of the Problem: Ignoring anatomic variations may lead to iatrogenic injuries by surgeons.Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between the course of infraorbital canal and maxillary sinus using cone beam computed tomography scans (CBCT).Materials and Method: One hundred and ninety two CBCT scans were reviewed for 384 infraorbital canals. The anatomic variants of infraorbital canals were classified into three types based on the protrusion degree of the infraorbital nerve from the maxillary roof into the sinus. Measurements were made on infraorbital canal as vertical distance from the infra...

A new blood-based test could help change the way TBI’s such as concussions are detected in patients. FDA recently granted a De Novo request to Banyan Biomarkers to market the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator (BTI). “The goal standard right now is the CT scan and it’s better than anything else out there,” Henry Nordhoff, chairman and CEO of Banyan Biomarkers, told MD+DI. “But the problem with CT is the cost; the time it takes; and the amount of ionizing radiation that’s delivered to the brain. It’s particularly dangerous when it’s a developing brain. You’re getting about 10...

Conclusion Exact determination of tumor is an important research topic, although results remain controversial. The results of this study suggest that in some cases PET scans may overestimate tumor extension.

ConclusionThe spleen is rarely involved inSBL at the time of staging, according to PET-CT, except in cases with direct extension from adjacent peritoneal mass. The low rate of spleen involvement according to PET-CT may serve as a specific characteristic of SBL. Larger-scale clinical studies incorporating PET-CT scans in SBL are needed to confirm our observation.

The objective of the article is to assess changes in splenic volume in the setting of hypovolemic shock; splenic enhancement in hypovolemic shock is also assessed.Materials/methods71 consecutive adult patients with the hypovolemic shock complex on computed tomography (CT) were identified. Spleen volume and enhancement were compared to a baseline CT scan (without shock) or to height- and sex-corrected normal values and a control population when a comparison CT was unavailable.ResultsSplenic volume was significantly lower in the setting of shock. Average splenic volume in adult patients with shock was 107  ± ...

Pallav Mahesh Patni, Pradeep Jain, Sumeet Jain, Hemalatha Hiremath, Rolly Agarwal, Mona Jain PatniJournal of Conservative Dentistry 2018 21(1):105-108Treating pathological defects that are caused by resorption in teeth can be challenging. The task is complicated further if the resorption extends beyond the restrains of the root. The aim of this report is to describe a case of extensive internal tunneling resorption (ITR) associated with invasive cervical resorption (ICR) in a maxillary right lateral incisor and its nonsurgical treatment. A 22-year-old male was referred to the department of endodontics with a chief complain...

We present a rare case of traumatic bilateral asymmetric hip dislocation with pelvic fractures and a traumatic diaphragmatic hernia. A 53-year-old machinist was transferred to our emergency department with the suspicion of a bilateral hip dislocation after he was trapped between an elevator and the roof. Immediate closed reduction of the hips was not performed because of the expected risk of increasing hemodynamic instability with muscular relaxation. An emergent full-body computed tomography (CT) scan was made to assess injuries with need for further operative treatment. Thus, closed reduction of both hips was finally per...

We report an unusual case of large Brunner's gland hyperplasia in 72-years old man, admitted to hospital for epigastric pain, recurrent vomiting and significantly weight loss. Upper endoscopy showed an obstructive submucosis tumour of the bulb. Abdominal computed tomography scan revealed a circumferential thickening and stenosing mass of the first part of the duodenum leading to severe obstruction. Though pre-operative biopsies were negative, imaging studies and endoscopy were strongly suggestive of malignancy and the patient underwent duodenocephalopancreatectomy. Brunner's gland hyperplasia may have unusual presentation,...
