Modern research has confirmed Pauling’s belief as it has identified five vitamins that may improve overall health. Vitamin D Vitamin D provides many important health benefits. It helps to build strong bones, regulates the calcium and phosphate levels in the body, encourages cell growth, strengthens the immune system, protects against certain forms of cancer, and improves mental health. Recent studies have also found that a person’s health can be improved at the most critical times when Vitamin D is given in combination with the nutritional supplement glutamine - an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body. Glutamine benefits the body in several ways. First, it is an important building block of proteins, which are essential to a strong immune system. Second, glutamine improves intestinal health. Third, it helps the body’s healing during injury and illness. A 2017 study found that trauma patients receiving Vitamin D and glutamine had a 62% lower death rate. The best sources of Vitamin D are certain types of fatty-fleshe...

McLean, in his letter to the editor, suggested that the conclusions made in our manuscript1 may be the result of Simpson's paradox. In other words, he believes that our results would have been different had we combined the US Sarcoma Collaborative and National Cancer Database (NCDB) patients and analyzed them collectively.
This article discusses the important properties of orthobiologics in bone healing, many of the orthobiologics currently available for bone healing, the related literature, their current clinical uses in sports medicine, and systemic factors that inhibit bone healing.
MR imaging has been increasingly getting attention for the evaluation of bladder cancer. Recent studies have been promising for the staging performance of MR imaging in the bladder cancer, although its specific role has not been established yet. Additionally, the use of hybrid imaging combining PET with MR imaging could have the potential to increase its accuracy, although more research studies are needed.
We present the technical and interpretation skills required to use MR urography and CTU effectively.
Renal tumors encompass a heterogeneous disease spectrum, which confounds patient management and treatment. Percutaneous biopsy is limited by an inability to sample every part of the tumor. Radiomics may provide detail beyond what can be achieved from human interpretation. Understanding what new technologies offer will allow radiologists to play a greater role in caring for patients with renal cell carcinoma. In this article, we review the use of radiomics in renal cell carcinoma, in both the pretreatment assessment of renal masses and posttreatment evaluation of renal cell carcinoma, with special emphasis on the use of mul...
Multiparametric MR imaging is being used for prostate cancer diagnosis. However, many cancers are missed and the performance needs to improve before it can be used for population-level screening. We can expect standardization of multiparametric MR imaging and increased use of quantitative multiparametric MR imaging, which will lead to more reproducible results and improved interpretation. The development and integration of new acquisition techniques and use of artificial intelligence for image interpretation can lead to implementation of new clinical MR methods. These will lead to increased adoption of multiparametric MR i...
