Early exfoliation of permanent tooth in patient with hypophosphatasia
ConclusionPermanent teeth may have a risk of early exfoliation as well as other structural abnormalities in HPP patients, thus longitudinal dental follow-up examinations of affected patients are required.
ConclusionIn Revolution CT, beam hardening artifacts were reduced in reduced-iodine VMI at lower energy levels compared to Discovery CT, contributing to better image quality.

Conclusions: Herniation of TMJ into the EAC is a rare condition, but can be encountered in the clinic at any time. This literature review could be helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ herniation into the EAC.
Conclusions: Poor cavity obliteration, a high rate of revision surgery and difficult differentiation between recurrent cholesteatoma and granulation tissue in CT scan was observed.
CONCLUSION: Flexible videoureterorrenoscopy and Holmium laser for the management of intrarenal stenosis are highly effective and safe with the advantages of less perioperative complications, less invasiveness and being an outpatient procedure compared to percutaneous surgery.

Conclusion: The development of LRSS pneumatization affects the removal rate of CS tumors in PAs. Preoperative analysis of LRSS development should be considered when planning EES against PA with CS invasion. PMID: 31819816 [PubMed]
DiscussionThe examination of the different slices and the application of different filters represent a promising tool both for the education of students/residents and for an improved informed consent by the patients.
In this study, we investigated the mechanism by which 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) sensitizes tumor cells to TTFields. Human HCT116 and SW480 CRC cells were treated with 5-FU and/or TTFields, and characterized in vitro in terms of cell viability, apoptosis through reactive oxygen species production, autophagy, and metastatic potentials. The biological effects of 5-FU and/or TTFields were studied via positron emission tomography and computed tomography on xenograft tumor growth and were confirmed with organoid models of patients. Our results revealed that combination treatment with 5-FU and TTFields increased the efficiency of TTF...

BooneAbstractX-ray Fluorescence Computed Tomography (XFCT) is an emerging imaging technique that provides elemental distribution in objects non-invasively. To predict and optimize the experimental outcome of XFCT, data generated by Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is usually used. However, MC codes typically require extended computing times to generate sufficient data. In this paper, we report an XFCT simulation method based on analytical computat...
We present a rare case of a major haemorrhage in a 46-year-old patient, 26 days post-vaginoplasty. An urgent computed tomography scan identified a large retrovesical collection, with high-density contents in keeping with recent haemorrhage, containing a 6mm pseudoaneurysm within the right lateral wall. Following resuscitation, the patient was urgently treated with successful embolization of the feeding artery (branch of the prostatic artery), with pushable coils. We highlight the importance of expedient, life-saving management in a rare post-operative complication.
