SIO systematic reviews focused on randomized controlled trials that were published from 1990 through 2015. The SIO guideline was reviewed by ASCO content experts for clinical accuracy and by ASCO methodologists for developmental rigor. On favorable review, an ASCO Expert Panel was convened to review the guideline contents and recommendations. Results The ASCO Expert Panel determined that the recomme...

Authors: Valladares EM, Hammond TC Abstract Positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy has been the standard treatment of choice for sleep disordered breathing, with 29-83% of patients being noncompliant.

We read with interest the article by Cambron et  al.1 The topic is important as there have been few randomized controlled studies with sufficient sizes on the use of foot orthotics in patients with low back pain. The authors concluded that “…shoe orthotics significantly improved back pain and dysfunction compared with no treatment…” and the addition of chiropractic care improved the outcome even further. We believe that such a conclusion might overestimate the results by mixing the statistical and clinical significance of the findings.

Dual-energy CT (DECT) is an emerging technology that has potential to enhance diagnostic performance and radiologists ’ confidence in the evaluation of thoracic malignancies. DECT clinical applications include characterization of solitary pulmonary nodule, lung masses and mediastinal tumors. DECT-derived iodine uptake quantification may assist in characterization of tumor differentiation and gene expression. The use DECT in oncology has potential to improve lung cancer staging, therapy planning, and assessment of response to therapy as well as detection of incidental pulmonary embolism.

Conclusions: We found that NRS was more important than insomnia symptoms in determining daytime consequences of insomnia. On the basis of our findings we express concerns whether the removal of NRS from the most recent diagnostic criteria may lead to its underrecognition, but support the quantitative criteria on insomnia frequency of at least 3 nights per week.Psychopathology
