Music and Music Therapy in the Medical Radiation Sciences

It's a wintry day in 2005. It's my first day as a senior magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) radiographer in a busy teaching hospital. Our patient is a 14-year-old male who presented for a follow-up MRI brain examination. My new colleague quickly explains the procedure and soon has the patient comfortably inside the bore of the magnet. He then clicks on the CD player and instantly the distinct, rough voice of Bruce Springsteen permeates the control room and our patient's headphones. Maybe our young patient loves listening to aged American rockers? Or, perhaps he would prefer the Arctic Monkeys who happen to be at number 1 this particular week in the UK? “Music to one's ear” certainly can be noise to one of our neighbors.

Conclusions: The surgical procedure for axillary lymph node dissection should be considered to avoid prolonged fluid discharge, and the lymph vessels should be ligated in axillary lymph node dissection. An ultrasonic dissector was not effective in reducing the total fluid discharge volume. An optimal axillary lymph node dissection technique should be developed. For the patients without drainage, careful postoperative treatment should be given to avoid infectious seroma formation, even for patients who underwent total mastectomy with sentinel lymph node retrieval.

In this report, we describe the novel single-practitioner technique utilized at our institution for acute point-of-care temporizing management of lower extremity fractures. The Boston technique: The patient is placed supine at the edge of the hospital bed. The injured extremity is suspended from an intravenous pole in 45° of hip abduction and 30° of hip flexion. Neutral rotation is adequately maintained due to suspension through the great and second toes, without the need for patient participation. A plaster cast is applied in the usual manner and allowed to dry. Once dry, the cast is bivalved per our standard...
