Beyond the forensic pathology investigation: improving warfighter survivability - Mazuchowski EL, Jordan CJ, Finelli LN, Harcke HT.

The Armed Forces Medical Examiner System (AFMES) conducts forensic pathology investigations in accordance with Title 10 U.S. Code 1471. Since 2004, the AFMES has incorporated advanced radiologic imaging, such as computed tomography, into its protocol. This...

CONCLUSION: This is the first published report of diffuse alveolar bleeding in a patient with multiple sclerosis treated with alemtuzumab. Four similar cases in patients treated for multiple sclerosis and several fatal cases in patients treated for other conditions are registered at the World Health Organization database of suspected adverse events (VIgiBase©), underscoring that this is a serious and possibly under-recognized complication of alemtuzumab which can also occur in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. The clinician should consider the possibility of diffuse pulmonary haemorrhage in patients with sudden ons...

ConclusionOur data confirmed the efficacy of68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT for detecting local vs systemic disease in PCa patients presenting PSA failure after radical therapy. Furthermore,68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT detection rate is different depending on the clinical stage of BCR, and this information should be taken into consideration by referring physicians.

We present the results of an investigation of the role of FDG PET in response evaluation of bulky masses in paediatric patients with Hodgkin ’s lymphoma (HL) enrolled in the Italian AIEOP-LH2004 trial.MethodsWe analysed data derived from 703 patients (388 male, 315 female; mean age 13  years) with HL and enrolled in 41 different Italian centres from March 2004 to September 2012, all treated with the AIEOP-LH2004 protocol. The cohort comprised 309 patients with a bulky mass, of whom 263 were evaluated with FDG PET at baseline and after four cycles of chemotherapy. Responses were determined according to combi...

ConclusionsGiven the increasing frequency of the use of anti ‐PD‐1 antibodies, clinicians should be aware of the risk of AEP as a potential irAE. This study may improve our understanding of the pathophysiology underlying Th2‐associated irAEs and AEP.

Posttraumatic elbow stiffness is common with the primary indication for contracture release being limited motion that affects functional activities which has not adequately improved after intensive therapy and rehabilitation. Preoperative evaluation focuses on the history of previous nonoperative and/or operative treatment, physical exam with particular attention paid to the status of the ulnar nerve, and imaging consisting of radiographs and computed tomography. There are multiple intrinsic and extrinsic causes of posttraumatic contracture. In general, limitation of motion in one direction can be attributed to a mechanica...

EMPHYSEMA QUANTIFICATION ON SIMULATED X-RAYS THROUGH DEEP LEARNING TECHNIQUES. Proc IEEE Int Symp Biomed Imaging. 2018 Apr;2018:273-276 Authors: Campo MI, Pascau J, José Estépar RS Abstract Emphysema quantification techniques rely on the use of CT scans, but they are rarely used in the diagnosis and management of patients with COPD; X-ray films are the preferred method to do this. However, this diagnosis method is very controversial, as there are not established guidelines to define the disease, sensitivity is low, and quantification cannot be done. We developed a quantification method ba...

Authors: Zhao M, Wang L, Chen J, Nie D, Cong Y, Ahmad S, Ho A, Yuan P, Fung SH, Deng HH, Xia J, Shen D Abstract Automatic segmentation of medical images finds abundant applications in clinical studies. Computed Tomography (CT) imaging plays a critical role in diagnostic and surgical planning of craniomaxillofacial (CMF) surgeries as it shows clear bony structures. However, CT imaging poses radiation risks for the subjects being scanned. Alternatively, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is considered to be safe and provides good visualization of the soft tissues, but the bony structures appear invisible from MRI. Ther...
