Publication date: Available online 14 December 2018Source: Radiation Physics and ChemistryAuthor(s): Roghayeh Kargar Shaker Langaroodi, Seyed Mohammad Mahdi Abtahi, Mohammad Esmaeil AkbariAbstractIt has been previously proven that the radiological properties of materials are strongly dependent on the incident radiation energy. Hence, the present study aimed to evaluate the radiological properties and soft tissue equivalency of conventional phantoms at the 1–50 keV photon energy as well as the feasibility study of using a more appropriate material instead of water. The equivalence of water and a number of convent...

ALBUQUERQUEBackgroundCone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become an important diagnostic tool in dentistry but has the disadvantage of exposing the patient to ionizing radiation, which may induce base damage, single- and double-strand breaks, and DNA protein crosslinks.ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to assess cytologic evidence of genotoxicity and cytotoxicity of x-rays in the oral exfoliated cells of adults subjected to partial ...

One of the most significant factors in extracting information from EHR record is the use ofnatural language processing (NLP) which I have referred to in a number of previous notes (see, for example:EMRs and the Data Entry Paradox; Same Concept Not Applicable in the LIS World;Assessing Drugs Using"Real World Evidence" in Addition to Clinical Trials;AI Allows Computers to"Read" EHR Records and Make Predictions). A recent article discussed why one should"care" about Amazon's new medical language processing service (see:Why Should You Care About Amazon's New Medical Language Proc...

AbstractTo measure integral doses in image-guided radiation therapy, we developed an integral condenser dosimeter comprising a disposable USB-A mini-substrate with a 0.1- µF condenser and a silicon X-ray diode (Si-XD), a microcomputer (mbed) dock, and a personal computer (PC). The Si-XD is a high-sensitivity photodiode selected for detecting X-rays. The USB-A substrate with dimensions of 24 × 14 mm2 is inserted into the microcomputer dock, and the condenser is charged to 3.23  V through a 10-kΩ resistor. The condenser charging voltage is subsequently measured directly using an anal...

ConclusionThe authors propose that this case represent an uncommon subset of osteoarthritis. Regular review, both clinically and radiologically, is required to assess speed of progression and to prevent rapid loss of bone stock without the surgeon being aware.

(Image courtesy of In2Bones) Orthopedic surgical device developer In2Bones announced the global launch of its “see-through” PitStop implant for children and adults with flat feet. One of the most common foot deformities, flat-foot often starts during adolescence and continues into adulthood. In2Bones (Memphis, Tenn.) developed the PitStop subtalar implant to restore the stability of a patient’s arch during the walking process. Several traditional metallic sublatar implants can be limiting because of material’s stiffness compared to the adjacent bones, causing pain and biomechanical adaptat...

Background: The calcaneal apophysis ossification staging system is a novel method for assessing skeletal maturity. However, it was created using the same historic patient population that was used to create the Greulich and Pyle atlas of the hand and wrist, predominantly white children. It is unclear if the calcaneal apophysis ossification staging system is still applicable to the modern pediatric population and to children of other races. Methods: We retrospectively studied 1327 benign lateral foot x-rays from modern white and black children. Calcaneal stage was determined and age, race, and sex were collected for eac...
