CONCLUSION: The results of our study indicated that early mobilization and full weight bearing in geriatric patients after hip fracture surgery shortened length of stay in hospital, reduced postoperative pain, and increased walking ability. PMID: 31742370 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a spinal deformity that can affect young children. It requires frequent exposure to X-rays to monitor the deformity, which can lead to the development of radiation-induced cancer later in life. The aim of this study is to test the accuracy of using scan projection radiography (SPR) in computed tomography (CT) scans for AIS assessment. This scanning mode delivers low radiation compared with conventional radiography.

David N. Brindley Breast cancer patients are usually treated with multiple fractions of radiotherapy (RT) to the whole breast after lumpectomy. We hypothesized that repeated fractions of RT would progressively activate the autotaxin–lysophosphatidate-inflammatory cycle. To test this, a normal breast fat pad and a fat pad containing a mouse 4T1 tumor were irradiated with X-rays using a small-animal “image-guided” RT platform. A single RT dose of 7.5 Gy and three daily doses of 7.5 Gy increased ATX activity and decreased plasma adiponectin concentrations. The concentrations of IL-6 and TNF...

The most efficient diffraction at a periodic grating structure is expected to take place when the incident radiation can be considered to have been specularly reflected off the inclined part of grooves that are positioned parallel to the trajectory of the incident beam. Very encouraging results for this configuration, in which the diffraction takes place off-plane, have been reported recently for a grating to be used in a spectrometer for space science investigations. This grating provided high efficiency for a relatively large groove density and a large blaze angle. High efficiency was observed even in higher diffraction ...

schke M Abstract Radiation-resistant hypoxic tumor areas continue to present a major limitation for successful tumor treatment. To overcome this radiation resistance, an oxygen-independent treatment is proposed using UVC-emitting LuPO4:Pr3+ nanoparticles (NPs) and X rays. The uptake of the NPs as well as their effect on cell proliferation was investigated on A549 lung cancer cells by using inverted time-lapse microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Furthermore, cytotoxicity of the combined treatment of X rays and LuPO4:Pr3+ NPs was assessed under normoxic and hypoxic conditions using the colony formation ...

Conclusions: X-rays could induce IL-8 production in lung cancer cells, which may be related to the activation of p38/MAPK and NF-κB signaling pathway, providing a new point for elucidating the mechanism of radiation pneumonitis. PMID: 31729901 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Turns out the “tail” on Narwhal the “unicorn” puppy’s head is basically just there so we can all fawn over it. If you haven’t yet had the privilege of seeing the photos and videos of Narwhal making their way around the web, then allow us to introduce you to the now-internet famous pup. Narwhal became a near instant viral star this week after the Twitter account WeRateDogs tweeted out a series of pictures showcasing the extra appendage growing out of his forehead. The Wednesday tweet has since garnered over 603,000 likes and nearly 129,000 retweets, and soon after its posting, celebrities...
