Abstract Temporomandibular joint ankyloses are a fusion of the mandibular condyle to the base of skull. Surgical advances have stemmed from innovation in computer planning, guidance, and intraoperative navigation, allowing surgeons to restore form and function with greater precision, predictability, and safety. Preoperative computer virtual surgical planning used the computed tomography scan data to render a 3-dimensional image that can be used for surgical simulations and fabrication of intraoperative aids. Temporomandibular joint reconstruction should be considered as a predictable option in the management of te...

Background: Computed tomography (CT) provides benefits for 3-dimensional (3D) visualization of femur deformities. However, the potential adverse effects of radiation exposure have become a concern. Consequently, a biplanar imaging system EOS has been proposed to enable reconstruction of the 3D model of the femur. However, this system requires a calibrated apparatus, the cost of which is high, and the area occupied by it is substantial. The purpose of this study was to develop a mobile application that included a new method of 3D reconstruction of the femur from conventional radiographic images and to evaluate the validit...

Conclusion: Systemic joint evaluation of study participants with inflammatory arthritis (RA, PsA) and osteoarthritis appears to be feasible using the uEXPLORER PET/CT total-body scanner. Careful definition and assessment of the patterns and distribution joint involvement across the body may provide further insight into the systemic inflammatory burden and pathogenesis of each of these conditions.

Conclusions: 68Ga-DATA-FAPi-05 is a promising PET tracer in the diagnosis of inconclusive results on 18F-FDG PET/CT. 68Ga-DATA-FAPi-05 is easy to prepare, labelled at room temperatures, which aids kit based preparations. It can be used as an alternative diagnostic option to 18F-FDG PET/CT. It is an ideal theranostic agent for the treatment of various cancers.

Conclusion Learning how to pay attention to our attention (meta-attention) can be transformative. Using principles from cognitive science, we can create a comprehensive approach (attention capital theory in medicine) to reclaim the meaning and joy that has been depleted from our profession. Increasing the difficulty of our work to match our skill level, delegating low-level tasks to help us focus on critical steps in our physician zone, creating rules to eliminate distractions, and noticing both the wonder and suffering around us may be more important than resilience training or wellness modules. Although well-intention...
