Metal objects of the head and neck region in magnetic resonance imaging : Survey among radiologists.

[Metal objects of the head and neck region in magnetic resonance imaging : Survey among radiologists]. Radiologe. 2019 Aug 23;: Authors: Kielburg U, Blankenstein FH Abstract CONTEXT: Although in recent times more research has been done on interactions of metallic dental objects in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiologists are often uncertain whether the objects should be removed or can be retained prior to an impending examination. On the one hand, they want to avoid unnecessary material removal which is associated with costs and potential damage of the dental object. On the other hand, they fear material-induced susceptibility artefacts will impair the diagnostic workup so that examinations will have to be repeated. The lack of information complicates adequate decision making for radiologists. AIM: The aim of this survey was to evaluate the information that is currently available to radiologists regarding orthodontic appliances of the head and neck region in the MRI and determine how to handle these situations in a radiologist's every day routine. Therefore, this study can reveal the need for further research. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The questionnaire was published in the 9/2017 issue of the journal Der Radiologe and sent as an electronic version by the BDR (Professional Association of German Radiologists) to their approximately 1800 members. In addition, the radiological institutes of 55 German university and maximum care clinic...

Objective: To date, prediction models for estimating risk of acquiring non-serviceable hearing in subjects with observed vestibular schwannoma (VS) have evaluated outcomes primarily based on features at initial diagnosis. Herein, we evaluate the association of rate of hearing decline during the initial period of observation with time to non-serviceable hearing. If significant, rate of hearing decline may inform decision making after an introductory period of observation. Setting: Two tertiary care centers. Patients: VS patients with serviceable hearing who underwent at least three audiograms and two magnetic resona...

Objective: The aim of the study was to analyze the long-term outcomes after cochlear implantation in deaf children with Down syndrome (DS) regarding age at the first implantation and refer the results to preoperative radiological findings as well as postoperative auditory and speech performance. Additionally, the influence of the age at implantation and duration of CI use on postoperative hearing and language skills were closely analyzed in children with DS. Study Design: Retrospective analysis. Setting: Referral center (Cochlear Implant Center). Materials and Methods: Nine children with Down syndrome were compa...

Their optimized lattice constants, elastic moduli, Vickers hardness, tensile strength, fracture toughness and ductility index have been calculated and discussed. These phases are thermodynamically, mechanically and dynamically stable. The calculated density of states reveals their ...

Stoffel, Christina Precht, Fenella Schmidli, Franck ForterreAbstractThe atlantoaxial joint is sporadically affected by instability, in most cases a congenital pathology in young small breed dogs. Causes of atlantoaxial instability (AAI) are variable but are usually attributed to a lack of ligamentous support. The purpose of the present study was to specify the role of the ligamentous structures in the stabilisation of the atlantoaxial joint and to find possible adaptations of the...

This study characterized brain changes associated with risperidone in nonhuman primates. Rhesus monkeys were orally administered risperidone in a dose-escalation paradigm up to a maximum tolerated dose of 0.5 mg/kg/day for 3 weeks, or 3 months followed by a 3-month recovery period. Transient and fully reversible neurological signs consistent with risperidone pharmacology were observed. The results of a magnetic resonance imaging evaluation after 3 months of treatment and at the end of the 3-month recovery period showed no meaningful changes in the brain. There were no risperidone-related brain weight changes or gross findi...
