Conclusions The use of CT-based navigation in LMS insertion decreased the rate of screw malpositions as compared with the freehand technique. Further investigations and trials will determine the effect of malpositions on the c-spine biomechanics. The use of navigation in LMS insertion did not show a significant difference in VAI, LMF, SCI, or NRI as compared with the freehand technique.

ConclusionIntegrating newer technology can change the current way of planning/simulating surgery. The use of powerful computer-assisted tools that are able to integrate several parameters and learn from experience can change the traditional way of selecting treatment pathways and counseling patients. However, there is still much work to be done to reach a desired level as noted in other orthopedic fields, such as hip surgery. Many of these tools already exist in non-medical fields and their adaptation to spine surgery is of considerable interest.

Publication date: 10 March 2018 Source:Thermochimica Acta, Volume 661 Author(s): Dominika Madej This paper describes the design, synthesis and hydraulic activity of novel Sr2+-doped Ca7ZrAl6O18 cement in respect of potential applications as: matrix used in nuclear waste immobilisation, components of X-rays and gamma radiation shielding concretes or utilized in refractories technology. The obtained material was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy combined with energy-dispersive spectrometry (SEM/EDS) and heat flow calorimetry techniques. It was well established that the addition of Sr2+ c...

Conclusions Conventional radiographic methods demonstrated a more subjective diagnostic procedure compared with CBCT images. CBCT is a more accurate and precise examination method compared with conventional radiography for the localization of impacted teeth and root resorption of the adjacent teeth.

AbstractBackgroundBoth [F-18]2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F –FDG PET/CT) and diagnostic CT are at times required for lymphoma staging. This means some body segments are exposed twice to X-rays for generation of CT data (diagnostic CT + localization CT).ObjectiveTo describe a combined PET/diagnostic CT approach that modulates CT tube current along the z-axis, providing diagnostic CT of some body segments and localization CT of the remaining body segments, thereby reducing patient radiation dose.Materials and methodsWe retrospectively compared total patient radiation dose ...

Most of us are sanguine about the fact that some things are out of our control. We know, for example, that we can’t avoid death or taxes or do much about how tall we’ll grow. For much of everything else, we figure out a way to deal with what happens in life — until we can’t, for one reason or another. A prime example is the emotional upheaval caused by receiving an unexpected and scary medical or mental health diagnosis. Having gone through this myself recently, here are some ways to help you cope. Get all the facts. After the initial shock, take a few deep breaths and resolve to learn as much as yo...

Hitachi (NYSE:HIT) said this week it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Real Time Image Gating System designed for use with its proton beam therapy systems. Real Time Image Gating Proton Beam Therapy is designed to track and irradiate tumors in motion, using a 2mm diameter gold marker close to the tumor to establish its location as a reference via computed tomography. A dual-axis, orthogonal X-ray system is then used with pattern recognition software to identify the spatial location of the marker, and irradiation during treatment is performed only when the gold marker moves to within millimeters of the planned irradiation lo...

ConclusionsBisphosphonate therapy can be used as the definitive treatment of spinal ABCs, except in patients with instability or progressive neurology, where surgical intervention is required. Clinicians should expect a patients symptoms to rapidly improve, their bone oedema to resolve by 3  months and their lesion to partially or completely ossify by 6–12 months.
