Using micro-computed tomography to examine the larynx in cases of suspected strangulation-a comparison of case findings and control images - Baier W, Burnett BA, Payne M, Warnett JM, Williams MA.
The examination of strangulation is one of the most challenging causes of death diagnoses encountered in forensic pathology. The injuries are often subtle and difficult to detect, especially in cases that lack superficial marks. Fractures of the laryngeal ...
ConclusionIn Revolution CT, beam hardening artifacts were reduced in reduced-iodine VMI at lower energy levels compared to Discovery CT, contributing to better image quality.

Conclusions: Herniation of TMJ into the EAC is a rare condition, but can be encountered in the clinic at any time. This literature review could be helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ herniation into the EAC.
Objectives: Describe audiologic outcomes in hearing preservation cochlear implantation (CI) using a precurved electrode array inserted using an external sheath and evaluate association of electrode positioning and preservation of residual hearing. Study Design: Retrospective review. Setting: Tertiary otologic center. Patients: Twenty-four adult patients who underwent hearing preservation CI with precurved electrode array. Interventions: CI, intraoperative computed tomography (CT) Outcome Measures: Audiologic measures (consonant-nucleus-consonant [CNC] words, AzBio sentences, low-frequency pure tone average...
Conclusions: Poor cavity obliteration, a high rate of revision surgery and difficult differentiation between recurrent cholesteatoma and granulation tissue in CT scan was observed.
Conditions: Acute Abdomen; Radiocontrast Nephropathy Interventions: Diagnostic Test: Abdominal or body CT with intravenous contrast; Diagnostic Test: Abdominal or body CT without intravenous contrast (native CT) Sponsor: Helsinki University Central Hospital Not yet recruiting
CONCLUSION: Flexible videoureterorrenoscopy and Holmium laser for the management of intrarenal stenosis are highly effective and safe with the advantages of less perioperative complications, less invasiveness and being an outpatient procedure compared to percutaneous surgery.
