Assessment of the Location of the Mandibular Lingula in Pediatric Patients Using Cone Beam Computed Tomography Images
Authors: Lu X, Forte AJ, Sawh-Martinez R, Wu R, Cabrejo R, Wilson A, Steinbacher DM, Alperovich M, Alonso N, Persing JA Abstract The dysplastic maxilla and retracted zygoma characterize Apert's syndrome. The relationship between the cranial base and facial development is believed to be influential and substantial. The purpose of this study is to explore the temporal relationships of maldevelopment of these structures to identify potential influence patterns. Fifty-four CT scans (unoperated Apert's, n = 18; control, n = 36) were included and divided into three age subgroups (0-6 months, 6 months-2 years, and 2-6 yea...
Conclusion: We present a case of NF-1 that was diagnosed using MRN following a protracted clinical course. MRN is a diagnostic modality for NF-1 and other peripheral nerve disorders. PMID: 30783543 [PubMed]

ConclusionpCSFV was independently associated with neurological outcome 6 months following cardiac arrest, however prognostic performance was not good.
ConclusionSmall and medium field of view CBCT adjusted grey density values obtained by the device used in the study could not be used to distinguish between periapical cystic and solid lesions. Further developments in CBCT devices are needed to improve the accuracy of grey density measurements.
Conclusions This treatment decreased neutrophil and macrophage migration, decreased the inflammatory response, and decreased bone loss in rats with ligature-induced periodontitis.
ConclusionSince there is often times a clinico-radiological discordance they are generally incidental findings in majority of cases. While complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice for the symptomatic cysts, cystic fluid diversion presents a better compromise nevertheless in cases where this may not be achieved.
We describe a rare case of a severe gastric ulcer of a 66-year-old immunocompetent man who was associated with primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and temporarily misdiagnosed with gastric lymphoma. A contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT-scan) of the thorax, abdomen and pelvis followed by EUS revealed a neoplastic infiltrative-ulcerative semicircumferentialgastric mass and a 1 cm large satellite adenopathy, being classified as T3N1M0 gastric neoplasia. The histological analysis of the ¾ distal stomach and lymph node sthat were resected contradicted the initial biopsy report, suggesting&nbs...
CONCLUSIONS: CEUS is a very useful imaging modality during follow-up of blunt splenic trauma non-operatively managed, allowing an efficientprediction of splenic injuries requiring only observation and monitoring during follow-up. PMID: 30779826 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Anatomical variations should be expected in the pediatric population. Familiarity with their point prevalence and associations may assist pediatric endoscopic sinus surgery planning. PMID: 30778427 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
