Resumo Objetivo: Avaliar a influ ência do tempo de exposição e calibre na formação de biofilme em cateteres urinários de Foley (CUFs). Método: Pesquisa in vitro com amostras de fragmentos de CUFs em látex siliconizado de diferentes calibres (n° 14 e n° 16 Frenchs). A urina artificial foi confeccionada, inoculada com bact érias-padrão Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923) e Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853) e incubada a 37 °C por 24 horas e 72 horas. As análises foram realizadas por meio de cultura (carga bacteriana) e microscopia eletr&o...

ConclusionsDoppler ultrasound in our neurosonology laboratory was found to be a useful diagnostic tool for detecting cervical carotid artery stenosis and demonstrated superiority to carotid duplex despite the lack of B-mode. Furthermore, this technique was found to be useful for detecting intracranial stenosis.ResumenIntroducciónLa detección de estenosis arterial cervical e intracraneal es fundamental en el estudio del ictus isquémico, al ser el origen aterotrombótico el más prevalente en nuestro entorno. La ultrasonografía se ha convertido, por su accesibilidad y fiabilidad, en la...

Pastor-Santoveña, P. Mesa-Blanco, J.C. López-Fernández, P. Serrano-AguilarAbstractIntroduction and objectiveImaging diagnosis is essential for treatment planning in stroke patients. However, use of these techniques varies due to uncertainty about their effectiveness. Our purpose was to describe the use of CT and MRI in stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) over 5 years in hospitals be...

CONCLUSIONS: The number of patients with bladder cancer is increasing in the Nordic region. The introduction of fast track pathways has been important in improving the management of patients with suspicion of the disease. Our recommendation is to focus on macroscopic hematuria in the fast track pathways. Microhematuria without any symptoms should not be an indication for cystoscopy. However, urinary tract symptoms accompanied by microhematuria can still be investigated according to respective guidelines but not necessarily within fast track pathways.

AbstractPurposeWe investigated whether the reproducibility of standard visual reporting (STD method) in flutemetamol (FMM) PET can be improved using a newly introduced method that uses grey matter edges derived from the perfusion phase (GM-EDGE method).MethodsTwo-phase FMM PET was performed in 121 patients with mild cognitive impairment. Five nuclear medicine physicians blindly and independently evaluated all late-phase scans, initially employing the STD method and later the GM-EDGE method. A five-point scale was used to express the degree of amyloid positivity, and a binary classification (positive/negative) was used in c...

AbstractPurposeThe disease course of multiple sclerosis (MS) is unpredictable, and reliable prognostic biomarkers are needed. Positron emission tomography (PET) with β-amyloid tracers is a promising tool for evaluating white matter (WM) damage and repair. Our aim was to investigate amyloid uptake in damaged (DWM) and normal-appearing WM (NAWM) of MS patients, and to evaluate possible correlations between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) β-amyloid1-42 (A β) levels, amyloid tracer uptake, and brain volumes.MethodsTwelve MS patients were recruited and divided according to their disease activity into active and non-act...

AbstractPurposeWe investigated the regional distribution of18F-THK5351 uptake in gray (GM) and white matter (WM) in patients with behavioral-variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) and compared it with that in patients with Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) or semantic dementia (SD).Methods18F-THK-5351 positron emission tomography (PET),18F-florbetaben PET, magnetic resonance imaging, and neuropsychological testing were performed in 103 subjects including 30, 24, 9, and 8 patients with mild cognitive impairment, AD, bvFTD, and SD, respectively, and 32 normal subjects. Standardized uptake value ratios (SUVRs) of18F-THK-5351 P...
