Podcast: Sexual Abuse: The Last Stage in Recovery

 While searching for a way past her own childhood sexual abuse, Rachel Grant learned that many people don’t understand what, exactly, sexual abuse is and how to recover. Using her counseling background, Rachel was able to research and learn valuable coping skills to improve her own life. Join us as Gabe and Rachel discuss the many factors involved in recovering from sexual trauma, steps society could take to reduce sexual abuse, and what the first step could be for others trying to get beyond surviving. SUBSCRIBE &REVIEW   Guest information for ‘Sexual Abuse Recovery’ Podcast Episode Rachel Grant is the owner and founder of Rachel Grant Coaching and is a Sexual Abuse Recovery Coach. She is also the author of Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse. She holds an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. She provides a compassionate and challenging approach for her clients while using coaching as opposed to therapeutic models.   Computer Generated Transcript for ‘Sexual Abuse Recovery’ Episode Editor’s Note: Please be mindful that this transcript has been computer generated and therefore may contain inaccuracies and grammar errors.

Conclusion: The presented method does not require a learning stage and enables a duty cycle close to 100%, higher average acoustic intensity and avoidance of side lobe effects versus performing HIFU beam steering to compensate tissue motion. Significance: To our knowledge, the proposed method provides the first experimental validation of the self-scanning HIFU ablation paradigm via a real-time hybrid MRI/US imaging, opening the path toward self-scanning in vivo therapies.

The objective of this paper is to investigate the detectability of breast tumors having various histological types in excised breast tissues of total mastectomy. The tumor images measured by a portable impulse-radio-ultra-wideband (IR-UWB)-radar-based breast cancer detector are compared with both pathological images and images of dedicated breast positron emission tomography. It is found that the detector can detect invasive-ductal-carcinomas and extensive intraductal component in the dense breast. The density of the breast has a correlation to the effective permittivity derived from the reconstructed confocal images. The ...

Conclusion and Significance: This system has the capability to operate within the strong magnetic field of a clinical 3-T MRI, to form proper particle aggregates and to automatically inject these aggregates into the MRI bore. Moreover, the versatility of the proposed injector renders it suitable for selective injections of MDEBs during MR-guided embolization procedures.

Smith, Dafin Fior Muresanu, Prasanta Kumar Dey, Hari Shanker SharmaAbstract5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), a precursor of serotonin, is therapeutically used for several psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression in the clinic. However, severe side effects, including abnormal mental functions, behavioral disturbances and intolerance are associated with this treatment. 5-HTP-induced elevation of plasma and brain serotonin levels may affect blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown, ...

In this study, we apply a diffusion “signal” model (diffusion tensor imaging, DTI) and two commonly implemented “microstructural” models (neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging, NODDI; spherical mean technique, SMT) in the human cervical spinal cord of twenty-one healthy controls. We first provide normative values of DTI, SMT, and NODDI indices in a number of white matter ascending and descending pathways, as well as various gray matter regions. We then aim to validate the sensitivity and specificity of these diffusion-derived contrasts by relating these measures to indices of the tissue...

In this study, we investigated whether neural dedifferentiation extends to auditory cortex. Inspired by previous animal work, we also investigated whether individual differences in GABA are associated with individual differences in neural distinctiveness in humans. 20 healthy young adults (ages 18–29) and 23 healthy older adults (over 65) completed a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan, during which neural activity was estimated while they listened to music and foreign speech. GABA levels in the auditory, ventrovisual and sensorimotor cortex were estimated in the same individuals in a separate magnetic ...

Authors: Ha JK, Hwang CJ, Lee DH, Lee MY, Yoon SJ, Lee CS Abstract The purpose of this study was to compare various sagittal spinopelvic parameters between patients with and without degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS). A total of 165 patients who underwent surgery for low back and/or radicular pain were divided into two groups: those without DLS (non-DLS group; n = 85) and those with DLS (DLS group; n = 80). In all sagittal spinopelvic parameters, no significant difference was found between the non-DLS and DLS groups. The mean pelvic incidence (PI) value of the DLS group (56.4°) was almost similar to th...

Authors: Karaca S, Enercan M, Levent Ulusoy O, Hamaoglu A Abstract T55 patients with cement-augmented pedicle screw were retrospectively analyzed. All patients underwent computed tomography at a minimum of 2 years after index operation. Computed tomography scans were analyzed to determine pedicle screw loosening, cement leakage, and fusion rates at augmented levels. The purpose of this study was to analyze the efficacy and complications of cement augmentation in elderly patients. Screw loosening occurred at fused levels in all patients, except one patient with pseudoarthrosis. All cases of screw loosening occurred ...

We present the 10 years results of 33 patients operated on between April 2002 and May 2006 diagnosed with a "sports hernia". The injury was treated with a bilateral abdominal procedure according to Nesovic combined with a bilateral adductor release after unsuccessful conservative treatment of at least 2 months. There were 32 male patients between 18 and 43 years and one female patient aged 25 years with a mean age of 28.8 at time of surgery. All procedures were bilateral. Patients were seen in the postoperative clinic and a questionnaire was collected after 2 years and 10 years. Within 16 weeks, 30 patients (90,9...

We report the injuries recorded over a period of 10 years in 156 Greek elite male and female gymnasts. A total of 2390 injuries were reported for a rate of 1,5 new injuries per year per athlete. Most commonly affected areas were the hip (18.5%), the ankle (16.5%), the lumbar spine (16%) and the foot (16%). The most frequent diagnosis was tendinitis (32%), followed by low back pain (20%), and sprains (12%). Fifteen athletes (9%) sustained serious injuries that required surgery. Rhythmic gymnasts had significantly more overuse type injuries compared to artistic gymnasts (p = 0.049). Gymnastics is a sport with a high incidenc...
