Correlation between 18F-FDG PET CT SUV and symptomatic or asymptomatic pulmonary tuberculosis.

CONCLUSION: The symptomatic pulmonary tuberculosis cases show significantly higher SUVmax than the asymptomatic cases. Based on the criteria of SUVmax greater than 2.0 to define active lesions, 100% of symptomatic cases might have active lesions while 70.4% of asymptomatic cases might have active lesions. Therefore, focused attention should be clinically paid on the asymptomatic cases of pulmonary tuberculosis to avoid miss diagnosis and delayed treatment.

CONCLUSIONS PCT occurs most commonly in middle-aged women who have chronic pulmonary inflammatory processes such as bronchiectasis, atelectasis, and inflammation. Although there are no specific symptoms or direct imaging findings in these patients, our results showed that patients who have bronchiectasis, atelectasis, or recurrent pulmonary infection are at increased risk for PCT.

Here is a case of 35 year Indian origin male with backache with MRI revealed marrow edema in the sacral vertebral bodies along with presacral abscess noted on sagittal fat suppressed images. Interestingly before the MRI Xray didnot show much changes. In patients with osteomyelitis, MRI will pick up the changes earlier than plain xray.MRI SHOWING SARCAL EDEMA&PRESACRAL ABSCESS                              XRAY LS SPINE LATERAL VIEW Famous Radiology Blog http://www.sumerdoc...

Conclusion: High index of suspicion is required for early diagnosis of PEO. It is important to differentiate Tubercular from other bacterial PEO as it has more subtle symptoms and poor prognosis if left untreated. Aggressive surgical treatment followed by antibiotic therapy of appropriate duration is required to avoid complications related to joint destruction. To our knowledge, this is the largest reported series with longest follow-up.

CONCLUSION: An AI tool for automatic detection of ATB in chest CT is successfully developed in this study. The AI tool can accurately detect ATB patients, and distinguish between ATB and non- ATB cases, which simplifies the diagnosis process and lays a solid foundation for the next step of AI in CT diagnosis of ATB in clinical application.

AbstractSince December 2019, the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic has caused world-wide turmoil in a short period of time, and the infection, caused by SARS-CoV-2, is spreading rapidly. AI-driven tools are used to identify Coronavirus outbreaks as well as forecast their nature of spread, where imaging techniques are widely used, such as CT scans and chest X-rays (CXRs). In this paper, motivated by the fact that X-ray imaging systems are more prevalent and cheaper than CT scan systems, a deep learning-based Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) model, which we call Truncated Inception Net, is proposed to screen COVID-19...

In this study, we present three cases of testicular infarction and discuss their clinical characteristics, imaging features and clinical management. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three adult males with prolonged epididymitis presented with chronic unilateral testicular pain, tenderness, and palpable swelling, including left varicocele in one case and hydrocele in the other two cases. Patient's symptoms were not relieved after antibiotic therapy. We analyzed the diagnosis, management, and outcome of these three cases of testicular infarction resulting from prolonged epididymitis. This includes the clinical characteristics, feat...
