The Mmogo-Method: Application, Experiences, and Lessons Learnt in Researching Radiography Students' Experiences and Coping With Death and Dying

This study aimed to share the application, experiences, and lessons learnt regarding the value of the Mmogo-method that is a visual projective research method, in the context of exploring the experiences and coping of undergraduate diagnostic radiography students with death and dying patients in the workplace.

AbstractPurposeThe gold standard for intramedullary nailing (IMN) in humeral shaft fracture treatment is bipolar interlocking. The aim of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes in two cohorts of patients treated with IMN with or without distal interlocking. We hypothesized that there was no significant difference between isolated proximal interlocking and bipolar interlocking in terms of consolidation and clinical results.MethodsOne hundred twenty-one acute humeral shaft fractures were retrospectively included in group WDI (without distal interlocking screw,n = 74) or in group DI (with d...

ConclusionThis study demonstrates that a dual offset tapered stem achieved excellent survivorship and stability, as well as good clinical outcome scores with minimal thigh pain and stress shielding in patients with arthritis and developmental dysplasia of the hip; a dual offset tapered stem may be a suitable option for primary total hip arthroplasty in this group.

Conclusions: The presented angular insertion depth prediction method is a first practical approach to support the preoperative selection of cochlear implant electrode arrays. However, the presented procedure is limited in that it is unable to predict the occurrence of insertion results with extracochlear electrodes and requires user training.

This study evaluates the number of incidental findings reported from orthopaedic radiographs ordered in an academic orthopaedic multispecialty group over 1 year. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of 13,948 eligible radiographs recorded at our institution over a 12-month period. Reports were categorized based on examination type. Incidental findings were categorized as having concern for possible malignancy versus likely benign conditions. The possibly malignant findings were then further subdivided into either bone or lung malignancies. The benign findings were subcategorized by etiology and anatomic locati...

Authors: Brubacher JW, Grote CW, Tilley MB Abstract Evaluation of periarticular traumatic wounds for joint penetration is a common clinical concern for orthopaedic surgeons. Wounds that violate the joint capsule can result in deep infection and sepsis. Understanding the anatomic landmarks and capsular extensions of the major joints is key to proper evaluation. Initial evaluation of periarticular wounds includes thorough examination of the wound and plain radiographs. Historically, the saline load test has been the diagnostic test of choice for assessing traumatic arthrotomy; however, CT has recently been shown to h...

Authors: Lyudmer M, Levy BJ, Holtzman AJ, Sankaranarayanan S, Tabeayo E, Gruson KI Abstract INTRODUCTION: Plain radiographs of the shoulder are routinely obtained for patients presenting with atraumatic shoulder pain, although the diagnostic utility of this imaging modality is unclear. Despite this, patients often prefer to obtain radiographs and may associate them with a more satisfactory visit. METHODS: New patients presenting with atraumatic shoulder pain were provided with information regarding the potential advantages and disadvantages of plain radiographs as part of their visit. Patients then decided whet...

Hip fractures are the most common serious injury in older people and cost the NHS and social care £1 billion per year [1]. In 2016, over 65,000 people aged 60 or older presented to 177 hospitals in England, Wales and Northern Ireland [1]. With increasing life expectancy worldwide, the number of elderly individuals is increasing, and it is estimated that the incidence of hip fracture will rise f rom 1.66 million in 1990 to 6.26 million by 2050 [1]. According to the National Hip Fracture Database in the UK, 60% of hip fractures are intracapsular, which is similar to the Swedish National Hip Fracture with 33% undisplace...

Until the 1990s, Radiologists relied on radiographs and computed tomographic scans for imaging evaluation of osseous and soft tissue abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system. Many of us who trained in that era were taught about the subtle abnormalities on radiographs that could be quite meaningful for diagnosis of  pathologic conditions. Osseous fracture might signify other soft tissue injury associated with trauma, including anterior cruciate ligament tears with Segond fractures of the knee, and labral tears with Hill-Sachs impaction injury of the humeral head.
