Post-orthodontic cephalometric variations in bimaxillary protrusion cases managed by premolar extraction – A retrospective study

Conclusion: A statistically significant increase in the nasolabial angle and upper lip length was found in relation to upper and lower incisor retraction and retroclination. A significant reduction was also evident in the post treatment upper incisor exposure, facial convexity angle and mentolabial sulcus depth.

ConclusionFollowing ultrasound-guided thoracentesis, the incidence of pneumothorax requiring chest tube decompression is only 1 in 170. Of the 1 in 30 patients who develop a pneumothorax, only 1 in 6 require a chest tube. This information can inform procedural consent discussions as well as future guidelines about the necessity of routine postprocedural chest radiography.

Shah Islam Hugh Harvey By HUGH HARVEY, MBBS and SHAH ISLAM, MBBS AI in medical imaging entered the consciousness of radiologists just a few years ago, notably peaking in 2016 when Geoffrey Hinton declared radiologists’ time was up, swiftly followed by the first AI startups booking exhibiting booths at RSNA. Three years on, the sheer number and scale of AI-focussed offerings has gathered significant pace, so much so that this year a decision was made by the RSNA organising committee to move the ever-growing AI showcase to a new space located in the lower level of the North Hall. In some ways it made sense to ...

ConclusionsThe limited currently available evidence shows potential of certain MRI settings for the use in operative dentistry. Further research needs to assess the applicability and accuracy for dental hard tissues as well as cost-benefit aspects of the MRI technique.Clinical relevanceCertain MRI settings may have the potential as diagnostic tool in operative dentistry.

ConclusionsThe ICC varied between assessment methods and conditions. Clustered trials should account for this during study planning and data analysis.Clinical relevanceWithin the limitations of this study, and considering the risk of selection bias and the limited sample sizes of both datasets, clustering effects were substantial but varied between dental conditions. Studies not accounting for this during planning and analysis may yield misleading estimates if clustering is present.
