Three-Dimensional Optical Imaging for Pectus Excavatum Assessment

Conclusions3D optical imaging of patients with pectus excavatum is emerging as an alternative method to assess HIs without the use of ionizing radiation. Additional studies will focus on volumetric quantification of chest wall deformities, using the 3D capabilities of this technology.

Conclusions: The Schneiderian membrane thickness was positively and highly associated with gingival biotype. The gingival biotype and arch form had significant effect on Schneiderian membrane thickness and can provide valuable clinical information on Schneiderian membrane thickness preoperatively for implant placement and sinus lift procedures.

This study found that The Canary System was more accurate than Bitewing Radiographs and Cone Beam CT in detecting caries on the gingival floor beneath composite restorations.  The sensitivity and specificity data (table on the right) indicates that The Canary System could find 89% of the caries where the other devices found 40% of the lesions.One of the major reasons for replacing restorations is tooth decay that develops around the edges of the filling.  This study found that “Radiographs though valuable in the detection of advanced caries lesions, are less sensitive for early or recurrent lesions under re...

This study compares the long-term functional, radiographic, and computed tomography (CT) scan outcomes and implant survivorship of ceramic-on-ceramic total hip arthroplasty (C-O-C THA) and ceramic-on-highly X-linked polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (C-O-HXLPE THA) in the same patients.

Discussion Foreign bodies are common problems for young children particularly ages 2-4 years who will mouth many objects and aspirate or swallow them. Children will also place foreign objects in other body orifices such as ears or noses. It is also not uncommon that young girls will inadvertently have toilet paper caught in the vaginal area during hygiene. Many of these foreign bodies may work their way out naturally not causing any problems, or may come to attention later because of chronic problems such as a foul-smell or discharge. Older children may tell adults that they have placed a foreign body in an orifice and thu...

BackgroundChronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is associated with bronchiectasis; however, this relationship has not been well studied in the United States (US) population. In this work we aimed to determine the prevalence of CRS among patients with bronchiectasis affiliated with a US tertiary medical center and identify which comorbid diseases are associated with the presence of CRS in patients with bronchiectasis.MethodsThis was a retrospective cohort study in which data were obtained from a large database warehouse at a tertiary care center. Patients with bronchiectasis were identified from 2007 to 2017 using diagnosis codes fr...

This report describes 2 clinical cases of middle-aged women with COF. Clinical examination revealed palatal mucosal depression; additionally, oral examination, as well as panoramic radiographs, intraoral radiographs, and computed tomography scans, revealed severe root resorption. This report highlights the clinical and radiological imaging features of COF, with the goal of enabling straightforward differential diagnosis of the lesion by the clinician and thereby appropriate treatment of the patient.

Guldane Magat, Sevgi Ozcan Sener, Hayriye CetmiliJournal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics 2019 15(5):1177-1180 Metastatic carcinomas to the jaw bones are uncommon and comprise to about 1% of all malignant oral neoplasms. The purpose of this report is to present a rare case of metastatic breast carcinoma to bilateral mandibular ramus regions. The present case report is about a 40-year-old female patient with the complaints of a paresthesia in the right mandibular area of the last month duration. She was referred to our department by her oncologist with the differential diagnosis of osteonecrosis or metastasis. She h...

CONCLUSION: In this study, 20.5% of hips classified as ARCO stage I or II on simple radiography were found to be ARCO stage III on CT imaging. When a joint-preserving treatment is considered for early stage ONFH, CT examination is necessary for more precise staging of the disease. PMID: 31571188 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present images of Lu-DOTATATE scan and Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT scan conducted on a 65-year-old man with prostate cancer with neuroendocrine differentiation, whose disease progressed despite conventional treatment and Lu-PSMA radioligand therapy; however, an extraordinary radiographic tumor remission, biochemical response, and improvement of clinical symptoms were observed after the patient underwent Lu-DOTATATE peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.

ConclusionsOFDs are complex injuries of the proximal ulna and may involve the radial head, coronoid process, and lateral collateral ligament. The effective treatment of OFDs begins with the proper identification of the injury with 3D CT. A secure fixation including the coronoid process is mandatory for the elbow joint stability. Insufficient restoration of the trochlear notch may lead to problems with loss of motion and arthrosis. Although an application of a pre-contoured locking anatomical olecranon plate can simplify the fixation procedure in most cases, the surgeons ’ equipment should also include radial head imp...
