CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of intrathoracic textiloma remains rare and its late presentation is non specific. Radiological imaging with a CT-scan and/or MRI could lead to the diagnosis. Surgery remains the reference treatment for the diagnosis and cure of intrathoracic textiloma with pathological examination, essential for confirmation. A means of prevention has to be developed because swab count is not totally reliable. PMID: 30446182 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Smettei, Ahmad Almeman, Sawsan Sayed, Hanaa Saqqah, Salma Mohammed, Fahad Al Harby, Abdullah M. Alhabib, Mouaz Al MallahAbstractIntroductionImage noise can negatively affect the overall quality of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA).ObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between image noise and fat volumes in the chest wall. We also aimed to compare these with other patient-specific predictors of image noise, such as body weight (BW) and body mass ind...

Authors: González Escobar AB, Alberte González A, Ibañez García A, Lorenzo Soto M, Gismero Moreno S Abstract Sclerochoroidal calcification (SCC) is uncommon and benign. It is usually detected in a routine examination, finding multiple yellow-white lesions in the upper temporal region of the retina in middle-aged and elderly men. A case report is presented of a 79 year-old male patient, who during a routine examination with a pseudoexfoliative glaucoma in the right eye, as well as raised white-yellow subretinal lesions in the upper temporal region in both eyes. After establishing hypotens...

Authors: Ye J, Huang G, Zhang X, Xu M, Zhou X, Lin M, Xie X, Xie X Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate the feasibility of three-dimensional contrast-enhanced ultrasound (3DCEUS) fusion in evaluating ablative margin (AM) after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and compare with those of computed tomography (CT) fusion. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In total, 55 patients (47 men, 8 women; mean age, 56.0 ± 10.6 years) with 55 HCCs were included. Pre- and post-RFA 3DCEUS images were fused to assess AM immediately after RFA. The AM measured on fusion imaging was categor...

ConclusionsWe report a case of a 67-year-old man with hypothalamic hypopituitarism secondary to a suprasellar metastasis from a primary small cell lung cancer, and we review ten cases of hypothalamic hypopituitarism due to metastases, including our patient. Recognizing hypopituitarism can be challenging, especially in the elderly, whose symptoms such as lethargy and visual decline may be mistaken for the natural aging process. In patients with established metastatic conditions, the symptoms may be wrongly attributed to malignancy or to the side effects of therapy. When a patient is suspected of having hypopituitarism, a ho...

We present a comprehensive review of the indications for spinal imaging in the trauma setting, describe each imaging modality including plain radiographs, multidetector computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, basic anatomy and common fracture patterns, and discuss the traditional spinal injury classification systems and the new Subaxial Cervical Spine Injury Classification and Thoracolumbar Injury Classification and Severity score.

This study aimed to evaluate the intra- and interobserver agreement for fracture classifications of the glenoid, using either plain radiographs, computed tomography (CT) scans. The study was retrospective, using images with a variety of fracture types. Six observers classified the fracture patterns. Classifications of Ideberg, OTAAO, Mayo and Euler/Ruedi were used. Agreement was determined using kappa coefficients. Currently used glenoid fracture classification systems have a fair to moderate intraobserver reliability. Combining plain radiographs and CT scans led to a better observer agreement. For interoberserver reliabil...

Authors: Mišič J, Popović P, Hribernik M, Starc A, Dahmane R Abstract In the liver, there are many vascular variants, which are important in liver surgery, the presence of accessory right hepatic veins (aRHVs) in particular. Th eir frequency, number and diameter vary considerably. Detailed imaging diagnostics with computed tomography (CT) should be undertaken before surgery. Th e aim of our study was to examine the characteristics of aRHVs and their demographic correlations. Th e study included data on 188 patients that underwent CT examination of the abdomen with contrast media, 103 men (54.8%) men and 85...

LuoAbstractPlate impact experiments are conducted on a rolled titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V to investigate the effects of structural anisotropy on dynamic deformation and damage, with the loading axis being parallel to the normal direction or transverse direction, referred to as LA∥ND and LA∥TD, respectively. Free-surface velocity histories are measured to evaluate the mechanical properties; the Hugoniot elastic limits for the LA∥ND and LA∥TD loading are 3.38 GPa and 3...

Górriz, Javier RamírezAbstractParkinsonism is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the world. Its diagnosis usually relies on visual analysis of Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) images acquired using 123I−ioflupane radiotracer. This aims to detect a deficit of dopamine transporters at the striatum. The use of Computer Aided tools for diagnosis based on statistical data processing and machine learning methods have significa...
