The majority of doctors will tell you that there is nothing you can do to reverse fatty liver and that health problems such as cirrhosis and liver failure may be in your future that they will address with the awful “solution” of liver transplant. The truth is the opposite: fatty liver is easily and readily reversible in virtually everybody, provided you take action before irreversible changes take place and are given the right information and tools. In this video, I discuss the three basic phenomena that drive fat deposition, liver damage, and inflammation that lead to this condition: Carbohydrate consumption ...

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 ...

Remember Monty Python’s brilliant Life of Brian movie scene where the Palestinian insurgent commando, planning the abduction of Pilate’s wife in return for all the horrors they had to endure from the Roman Empire, asks the rhetorical question: what have the Romans ever done for us? With the hype and overmarketing, not to speak about the fears around A.I, we asked the same question. What has A.I. in medicine ever done for us? Well, we found at least 45 things. I have 45 responses to the pressing question on everyone’s mind who is interested in healthcare but tired of the hype or the doomsday scenarios a...

This study was approved by the IRB at MedStar Health and all participants signed informed consent. Participants were injected with 925 MBq (25 mCi) of 99mTc-sestamibi intravenously and whole body images were acquired after ~1h with acquisition speed 4cm/min with parallel-hole low-energy collimator. Extra spot view, pinhole view, or SPECT/CT images were performed when necessary. Two blinded nuclear medicine physicians independently interpreted the 99mTc-sestamibi images, and graded each foci 1-5 (1 = definite physiological uptake or artifact; 2 = most likely physiological uptake or artifact; 3 = indeterminate; 4 = most like...

Conclusion: BPA may have toxic effects on the female reproductive system in humans, as it does in animal models. Higher first-trimester BPA exposure was associated with significantly shorter AGD in daughters, suggesting that BPA may alter the hormonal environment of the female fetus. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP875 Received: 27 July 2016 Revised: 18 January 2017 Accepted: 19 January 2017 Published: 11 July 2017 Address correspondence to E.

QUESTION ASKED: Although medical record–based measurement of adverse events (AEs) associated with cancer care is desirable, condition-specific triggers in oncology care are needed. We sought to develop a screening tool to facilitate efficient detection of AEs across settings of cancer care via medical record review. We hope to use this tool to understand the frequency, spectrum, and preventability of AEs with the goal of helping improve the quality and safety of cancer care. SUMMARY ANSWER: We developed a cancer-specific screening tool to help identify candidate preventable AEs that occur during cancer care from pat...

Imagine if your best friend -- the one who deserves one hell of a co-pay for the psych-worthy advice she doles out on a daily basis (with love and/or or a swift kick in the butt, as needed) suddenly couldn't speak. My lifeline, Jill Gurfinkel, had a paralyzed vocal cord for what seemed like forever. Not from cheering for her then 7-year-old son at his hockey game or yelling at him to eat his vegetables or even from litigating in court (I don't mess around; my chief counsel is a badass lawyer). The only thing that has ever robbed her of her voice was thyroid cancer. In Cindy Finch's recent HuffPost blog, "The 6 Inju...

Conclusion: there is no increased risk of doing the lymph node dissection early on.   Dr. Eggener-CON   Basics Lymph node dissections rarely done, even for large tumors, because there is no proven therapeutic or staging benefit for low risk patients.  A Mayo study revealed no data showing therapeutic benefit in high risk patients.  For clinically node negative high risk patients, there is staging value but no proven therapeutic benefit. Rate of positive nodes is associated with stage and grade; the higher the stage and grade, the more likely there will be positive nod...
