High frequency jet ventilator - a new approach in the management of anesthesia for pediatric cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging: case series.

CONCLUSIONS: This case series demonstrates that the use of a high frequency jet ventilator for cardiac MRI was feasible, safe, providing good quality cardiac imaging and avoiding anesthesia personnel to be inside the hazardous environment of MRI room. Future studies are needed to confirm its safety and efficiency in pediatric patients. PMID: 31796302 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsManagement of SNAC consists of histological diagnosis, radiological staging, radical surgery, and adjuvant radiation therapy. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy can be indicated in selected cases. The role of biotherapy and immune therapy still needs to be elucidated.

To resolve the finer functional structure of the monkey brain, ultra-high-field (UHF) MR is essential, and high-performance, close-fitting RF receive coils are typically desired to fully leverage the intrinsic gains provided ...

We presented the physics preparations and clinical workflow required for implementing MRI-based HDR IBT (MRI-HDR-IBT) of gynecologic cancer patients in a high-volume brachytherapy center. The present document is designed to focus on the clinical steps required from a physicist's standpoint. Those steps include: (a) testing IBT equipment with MRI scanner, (b) preparation of templates and catheters, (c) preparation of MRI line markers, (d) acquisition, importation and registration of MRI images, (e) development of treatment plans and (f) treatment evaluation and documentation. The checklists of imaging acquisition, registrat...

Tal, Berg / Boaz, FrenkelPage 816 - 820Preauricular swelling followed by limited mouth opening can be a challenging diagnosis. All anatomical structures and related pathologies should be examined. A 41-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Room complaining of limited mouth opening, severe pain that was worse on chewing, and swelling over her right temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that had started 3 days previously. Physical examination revealed localized swelling and redness over her right TMJ. Her right masticatory muscles were very painful and tender on palpation. Mouth opening was slightly limited. A computed tomograph...

Conclusion: Dexmedetomidine 1μg/kg, ketamine 1 mg/kg, and propofol 1 mg/kg provide good conditions for initiation of MRI. Although dexmedetomidine at 0.7μg/kg/h and propofol at 3 mg/kg/h are safe and effective for maintenance, propofol provides faster recovery.
