Motion compensation for MRI-compatible patient-mounted needle guide device: estimation of targeting accuracy in MRI-guided kidney cryoablations.

Conclusion. Our simulation study demonstrated that the software system could significantly improve the targeting accuracy both in patients treated under MAC and GA. Intra-procedural image-based device-to-image registration was feasible. PMID: 29546845 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 5 November 2019Source: Carbohydrate PolymersAuthor(s): S. Peers, P. Alcouffe, A. Montembault, C. LadavièreAbstractThis work describes the characterization of an original liposomes/hydrogel assembly, and its application as a delayed-release system of antibiotics and anaesthetics. This system corresponds to drug-loaded liposomes entrapped within a chitosan (CS) physical hydrogel. To this end, a suspension of pre-formed 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocoline liposomes loaded with an antibiotic (rifampicin, RIF), an anaesthetic (lidocaine, LID), or a model fluorescent molecule (car...

Conclusion: The Ki–SURstat correlations were considerably stronger than the Ki–SUV correlations. The good Ki–SURstat correlations suggest that static 18F-FDG PET/CT and SURstat analysis provides an alternative to dynamic 18F-FDG PET/CT and Patlak analysis, allowing the assessment of inflammation of whole lungs, repeated measurements within the period of 18F-FDG decay, and faster data acquisition.

ConclusionsWe found that PMTS approach was superior as a means of achieving epidural access relative to the PMSS approach, since PMTS approach can be conducted more quickly given shorter path of the needle and less times needed for epidural access during this procedure.Clinical trial registrationChinese Clinical Trial Registry, clinical trial number ChiCTR1800015815, date of registration April 24, 2018.

AbstractBackgroundEndometriosis can exert obvious negative effects on women ’s quality of life.Excisional surgery is among the most effective treatments for severe pelvic endometriosis. The prevalence of severe pelvic adhesions following a laparoscopic examination of severe endometriosis varies between 50 and 100%. Temporary intraoperative ovarian suspension is a method for the reduction of adhesions is in the treatment of severe pelvic endometriosis. Given the importance and the prevalence of endometriosis and its complications, we conducted the present study to determine more effective adhesion-reducing methods wit...

has anyone ever done anesthesia overseas (UK, Scandinavia, Netherlands)? if so, is the process of maybe working overseas a few years even doable? love my current PP job right now but looking for something different maybe for a few years. i don't care about the pay cut but looking to experience something different. no kids, no SO, just alot of time on my hands. thanks.
