Medical imaging saves millions of lives each year, helping doctors detect and diagnose a wide range of diseases, from cancer and appendicitis to stroke and heart disease. Because non-invasive early disease detection saves so many lives, scientific investment continues to increase. Artifical intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the medical imaging industry by sifting through mountains of scans quickly and offering providers and patients with life-changing insights into a variety of diseases, injuries, and conditions that may be hard to detect without the supplemental technology. Images are the largest source...

AbstractBackgroundThe KRASG12C mutation occurs in ∼13% of lung cancers (11% of non-small cell lung cancer [NSCLC]), 3% of colorectal cancer (CRC) and appendix cancers, and 1–3% of other solid tumors. KRASG12C is a driver of tumorigenesis, but there are no approved therapies targeting this mutation. AMG 510, a novel, orally administered small molecule, specifically and irreversibly inhibits KRASG12C by locking it in an inactive GDP-bound state. A phase 1, first-in-human, open-label, multicenter study is underway to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and efficacy of AMG 510 in adult patients ...

DiscussionL-CRS/HIPEC can be performed when patients are unexpectedly found to have disease, provided the appendiceal pathology is low grade and the PCI score is low. There are potential benefits to this approach, with a shorter length of hospital stay and faster functional recovery when compared with traditional open surgery.

Conclusion We have reviewed the literature and identified blood biomarkers with the highest discriminative abilities as determined by operating characteristics in four commonly encountered clinical situations: diagnosing concussion, predicting the need for a CT scan after mTBI, predicting delayed recovery after mTBI, and predicting poor outcome after sTBI. The top performers in each category may provide insight into pathogenic mechanisms of TBI that most influence the measured endpoint. Nonetheless, many challenges remain before these biomarkers can be incorporated into clinical practice. In particular, it remains unclear...

This study hypothesized that similar VOCs might be detected after HBOT. Methods: Ten healthy volunteers of the Royal Netherlands Navy underwent six HBOT sessions (95 min at 253 kPa, including three 5-min “air breaks”), i.e., on five consecutive days followed by another session after 2 days of rest. At 30 min before the dive, and at 30 min, 2 and 4 h post-dive, exhaled breath was collected and followed by PFT. Exhaled breath samples were analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). After univariate tests and correlation of retention times, ion fragments could be identified using a reference data...
