Conclusion: Considering the radiological report, no significance was found for the observed changes. Atelectasis was not the most frequently observed change. The predisposing factors for these changes were extreme prematurity, low weight, male sex, a poorly positioned endotracheal tube and the use of invasive mechanical ventilation.
Discussion Foreign bodies are common problems for young children particularly ages 2-4 years who will mouth many objects and aspirate or swallow them. Children will also place foreign objects in other body orifices such as ears or noses. It is also not uncommon that young girls will inadvertently have toilet paper caught in the vaginal area during hygiene. Many of these foreign bodies may work their way out naturally not causing any problems, or may come to attention later because of chronic problems such as a foul-smell or discharge. Older children may tell adults that they have placed a foreign body in an orifice and thu...
ConclusionThe proposed method allowed calculating VAR values in frontal radiographs with minimal user intervention and robust quasi-automated pedicle localization.Graphic abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Surgical treatment involves resecting these “bone stops”. In the literature, these osteophytic lesions are more common than cartilage lesions, which suggests they may occur beforehand. The aim...
Conclusion: The internal cone connection reduced bone resorption compared with the internal hex. Both groups of implants had a 100% survival rate.
Conclusion: To diagnose all TB forms, X-ray should be part of the diagnostic algorithm. The combination of X-ray and Xpert testing for high-risk clients was the most effective ACF approach in this setting. PMID: 31500551 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: Minimally angulated (
Conclusions This survey suggests that many PEM providers obtain radiographs to convince families of the diagnosis of constipation. This is not a viable management plan given the risks of radiation as well as costs. There remains room for improvement as we attempt to reduce use of radiation in the evaluation of common pediatric illnesses.
Conclusion: In patients with an acute lower respiratory tract infection, GPs report that CRP results affect their behaviour regarding the request of a chest X-ray in patients with lower respiratory tract infection and therefore research is needed to substantiate the use of these diagnostic tools for this purpose.
