Imaging of Diffuse Lung Disease in the Intensive Care Unit Patient.
Imaging of Diffuse Lung Disease in the Intensive Care Unit Patient. Radiol Clin North Am. 2020 Jan;58(1):119-131 Authors: Stefanidis K, Moser J, Vlahos I Abstract There is a wide variety of causes of diffuse lung disease in the intensive care unit patient, of which adult respiratory distress syndrome is the commonest clinical consideration. Plain radiography, computed tomography, and ultrasound can be used synergistically to evaluate patients with diffuse lung disease and respiratory impairment. Imaging is not limited to characterization of the cause of diffuse lung disease but also aids in monitoring its evolution and in ventilator setting management. PMID: 31731896 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: The efficacies of daily TDF and event-driven TDF use were not significantly different in preventing new infections among HIV-negative MSM. Event-driven TDF use is economical and effective and is worth popularizing. Our results provide evidence for the application and promotion of the PrEP strategy in the MSM population in China.
