This report suggests that the transglutaminase FXIII, a blood coagulation factor, may have an important clinical benefit in treating recurrent or thoracentesis-refractory CPE in TSC-LAM. To our knowledge, this is the first known case in the literature describing the successful treatment of CPE with FXIII in TSC-LAM. Because CPE is rare and there is currently no gold standard for its management, regardless of etiology, further research is warranted to investigate the potential clinical use of FXIII as an effective and safe treatment strategy in selected patients.

Intel (NSDQ:INTC) and Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG) said last week they are partnering to test Intel hardware’s ability to run deep learning artificial intelligence programs intended to improve the capabilities of Philips tech. The two companies joined to test the abilities of hardware using Intel Xeon processors and the OpenVINO toolkit for two AI-powered programs: one for bone-age-prediction modeling based on X-rays and one examining computed tomography scans of lungs for segmentation. Intel said that in the tests, the systems showed speed improvements of 188 times for the bone-age prediction model and 38 times for...

It ’s difficult to open a newspaper nowadays without seeing an article about artificial intelligence. These column-inches spark our imaginations with heady visions of possible futures and crease our brows with concern in equal measure. But one thing you cannot escape is that AI is here now and it’s only going to become more pervasive.While fear of an unknown technology is understandable, in many ways it does a disservice to the incredible impact that AI is already having on the world around us. In the healthcare space alone, it is offering ways to fundamentally rethink clinical practice, speeding up diagnosis, ...

Malpositioning of Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs) constitute an important risk factor for pump thrombosis because of disturbed intraventricular and pump inflow pathways. Parameters characterizing the intraventricular LVAD position were derived from chest X-Rays and computer tomography (CT) images and correlated to the occurrence of pump thrombosis (PT).

Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) after lung transplantation (LTx) is currently classified on the basis of arterial blood gas analysis and presence or absence of bilateral infiltrations in chest x-rays. The clinical relevance of PGD grades is controversially discussed and its impact on outcome parameters in the modern era of lung transplantation is elusive.

By Michael Nedelman, CNN (CNN) — Doctors call it the “weekend effect.” Patients in the hospital are more likely to die off-hours — whether it’s due to a brain bleed, a heart attack or a clot in the lungs. New research on cardiac arrest in the hospital now asks: Has the “weekend effect” changed in recent years, as treatment has gotten better? “We know that survival trends have improved in past decade or so,” said Dr. Uchenna Ofoma, assistant professor of medicine at Temple University and a critical care physician at Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pennsylvania. &ldq...

By HUGH HARVEY, MD Artificial intelligence requires data. Ideally that data should be clean, trustworthy and above all, accurate. Unfortunately, medical data is far from it. In fact medical data is sometimes so far removed from being clean, it’s positively dirty. Consider the simple chest X-ray, the good old-fashioned posterior-anterior radiograph of the thorax. One of the longest standing radiological techniques in the medical diagnostic armoury, performed across the world by the billions. So many in fact, that radiologists struggle to keep up with the sheer volume, and sometimes forget to read the odd 23,000 of the...
