Three-dimensional kinematic corridors of the head, spine, and pelvis for small female driver seat occupants in near- and far-side oblique frontal impacts.
CONCLUSIONS: In general, average peak excursions were greater in the far-side configuration than in the near-side configuration. Peak excursion results compared well with similar tests conducted on male postmortem human subjects (PMHS). The kinematic corridors developed in the current study serve as a set of biofidelity corridors for the development of current and future physical and computational surrogates.

CONCLUSION: Bone-anchored hearing devices can be implanted by prior imaging and using a template to identify the area of appropriate skull thickness to implant the abutment safely. PMID: 32079553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThe single-port approach has advantages as easier surgical planning and transition for combined and multi-quadrants surgeries: faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain and need for opioids, and excellent cosmetic outcome. We suggest that combined procedures should be performed only in high volume institutions by surgeons with vast experience in robotic surgery in selected patients.ResumenIntroducciónPresentar el primer caso de cirugía multicuadrante concomitante —prostatectomía radical robótica y nefrectomía parcial robótica izquierda— realizadas con t&eac...
Conclusions: The proposed web-based deep learning approach can be very practical and accurate for spine segmentation as a diagnostic method. PMID: 32082701 [PubMed]
ConclusionsCT angiography imaging findings have the potential to identify patients with head and neck cancer at higher risk of bleeding.
ConclusionReliable iodine quantification can be achieved using dual-source CT, but the result can be affected by patient size and dose rate. In large patients, biases may occur due to the beam-hardening and the photon-starvation effects, in which case higher dose rate and higher kVp are recommended to minimize these effects.
ConclusionHigh-quality CT and CT angiography can be achieved in ECMO patients of different ages and clinical issues considering the type of ECMO circulation, ECMO cannulation sites, preferred contrast phase and anatomy of interest. CT diagnoses affect the treatment of the patient.
ConclusionWith the guidance of navigation integrated with PET, CNB is a feasible and accurate diagnostic modality, which is also an alternative to open biopsy in patients with suspected primary or recurrent malignancies in deep regions of the head and neck on PET/CT.
Authors: Regnier P, De Luca V, Brunelle S, Sfumato P, Walz J, Rybikowski S, Maubon T, Branger N, Fakhfakh S, Durand M, Gravis G, Pignot G Abstract BACKGROUND: Sarcopenia is suspected to influence the complication rates in patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC). The aim of our study was to assess variations in sarcopenia in patients scheduled for neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy (NAC) and RC for muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) and to explore the impact of sarcopenia on complications linked to NAC or surgery. METHODS: Between 2012 and 2017, 82 consecutive patients who underwent NAC and RC for c...
ConclusionACP pneumatization can be recognized in all ages including pediatric age. CT scan is recommended before anterior clinoidectomy to assess the presence and extent of pneumatization to avoid CSF leak complications. When recognized, reconstruction must be attempted to obliterate the connection between the intracranial space and nasal sinuses. If CSF leak recognized post-operatively, repair is feasible through open or endoscopic transnasal approach.
We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...
