Penetrating craniocerebral injury by chopsticks in a Japanese boy confirmed by combined brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging

Penetrating craniofacial injuries by chopsticks rarely occur in children living in Oriental societies.1 –3 In many cases, the penetrating accident is caused by accidentally holding chopsticks in their hands and can be identified based on the stab wound in their face.1–3 Here we report a case with the difficult diagnosis of a transorbital penetrating intracranial injury in a child because of a mino r stab wound.

CC Abstract CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the stomach, duodenum and pancreas are rare tumors with a low incidence but the exact tumor localization and staging diagnostics are of critical importance for further planning of treatment. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Standard primary diagnostic methods include multimodal imaging with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) but in 20-50% of the cases the localization of the primary tumor cannot be identified. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Modern hybrid imaging procedures combine radiological procedures and fun...

CONCLUSIONS: Functional imaging represents an attractive and non-invasive modality to assess complex biological phenomena in solid tumors. Larger tumor volume and increasing hypoxia emerged as putative prognostic imaging biomarkers in HNSCC. PMID: 31496204 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Kostakis EK, Gkioni LN, Macut D, Mastorakos G Abstract Menopause is the period of a woman's life that is characterized by the permanent cessation of menses associated to hormonal changes, of which the most important is the decrease of estrogen levels. Following menopause, the concentrations of circulating androgens decrease. However, increased concentrations of luteinizing hormone induce androgens secretion from the ovaries and presumably from the adrenal glands. Peripheral conversion of androgens results to the circulating hormonal androgen profile. Some pathological conditions are associated with greater...

AbstractBackground.In endometrial carcinoma (EC), preoperative classification is based on histopathological criteria, with only moderate diagnostic performance for the risk of lymph node metastasis (LNM). So far, existing molecular classification systems have not been evaluated for prediction of LNM. Optimized use of clinical biomarkers as recommended by international guidelines might be a first step to improve tailored treatment, awaiting future molecular biomarkers.Aim.To determine the diagnostic accuracy of preoperative clinical biomarkers for the prediction of LNM in endometrial cancer.Methods.A systematic review was p...

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2019; 23: 419-428 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1694755Ultrasound-guided joint injection is more accurate than palpation-guided injection and performed more frequently. Joint injection is helpful for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes as well as for injecting contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography arthrography. Ultrasound-guided joint injection helps ensure intra-articular injection and minimizes injury to para-articular soft tissues.
