FISA warrants and Team Trump spying: What did OBAMA know and when did he know it?
(Natural News) More information continues to be revealed and released following Friday’s publication of the scandal-filled FISA memo. It has now become clear that there is very likely a direct link from the FISA warrant approval process to the former president of the United States, Barack Obama. Here’s an analysis not only of how the FISA...
Acontroversial study recently published inJAMA Pediatrics has posed possible but largely unfounded links between autism and ultrasound technique and frequency. According to researchers from Boston University School of Medicine, there is a possible correlation between depth of ultrasound penetration during the first and second trimesters and autism. The researchers evaluated sonograms of 420 children, 107 with autism, 104 with developmental delay, and 209 with typical development. They looked at the frequency of ultrasound scans and penetration depth amongst the three groups. They found that mothers of children with au...
Conclusion: VOL, VBM, and their combination are effective in differential diagnostics between bvFTD and AD or SMC. However, MRI atrophy profiles for bvFTD and LBD are too similar for a reliable differentiation with the quantification methods tested in this study.Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord Extra 2018;8:51 –59
CONCLUSION: This study suggests that compatible ureteroscope-ureteral access sheath combinations with a lumen difference of more than 1.5 Fr can provide safe outcomes in terms of renal blood flow. F-URS can safely be performed in terms of renal perfusion and complication rates with appropriate equipment and instruments. PMID: 29463207 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The combination of TBx and SBx achieved the best results for the detection and prognosis of PCa-s. The use of SBx alone would have missed the detection of PCa-s in 12% of patients. PMID: 29463177 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Low-dose brachytherapy offers good short- to intermediate-term cancer control in selected men with localized PCa. Further studies are needed for safety analyses and for comparison with other treatment modalities. PMID: 29463165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: SRS for benign head and neck paragangliomas is a safe and efficacious treatment associated with minimal morbidity. SRS is suitable for patients with skull base tumors
Conclusions: Preradiotherapy low albumin levels and NLR>5 correlate with decreased survival in patients with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma treated with SBRT, indicating the prognostic value of systemic inflammatory markers (such as NLR) and a role of nutritional supplementation to improve outcomes in these patients. Further investigation is warranted.
Purpose: To investigate whether positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) initial and restaging imaging predicts for pathologic response measured by tumor regression grade (TRG) after preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer. Methods: A retrospective review of 220 patients with stage II-III esophageal cancer treated with neoadjuvant CRT followed by surgery was performed. In total, 187 patients were eligible for statistical analysis. Pretreatment and posttreatment PET/CT scans were reviewed. Maximum standard uptake value (SUV) at the site of the primary tu...
