Justification of Increasing the Blood Flow Velocity in the Arteries of the Thyroid Gland in Autoimmune Thyroiditis as a Reflection of Endothelial Changes Due to Inflammatory Status.

Justification of Increasing the Blood Flow Velocity in the Arteries of the Thyroid Gland in Autoimmune Thyroiditis as a Reflection of Endothelial Changes Due to Inflammatory Status. Curr Med Imaging Rev. 2019;15(1):61-65 Authors: Chekalina NI, Burmak YH, Petrov YY, Borysova ZO, Trybrat TA, Shut SV, Kazakov YM Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of the research was to determine the dependence of the blood flow velocity in the thyroid arteries in patients with Autoimmune Thyroiditis (AIT) on the presence of atherosclerotic carotid disease and the level of systemic blood pressure. METHODS: The research involved 20 patients with AIT in euthyroid state, 30 patients AIT in euthyroid state with stable Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), 30 patients with stable CHD and 30 healthy individuals. Participants of the research were examined using ultrasound of carotid arteries and inferior thyroid arteries. Parameters of blood flow velocity were compared with the level of systemic blood pressure. RESULTS: In AIT peak systolic velocity and resistance index in the inferior thyroid arteries were significantly higher than in healthy individuals and patients with CHD (p

We developed a three-dimensional (3D) printed simulator (3D-printed PCNL model) for urological trainees.Methods: 40 s year urology residents were randomly assigned into two groups, completing PCNL surgical steps on a URO Mentor™ surgical simulator (Group A) or on our new 3D-printed PC...

CONCLUSIONS: Fusion genes were the most common genetic cause of pediatric PTCs. Fusion gene positive PTCs showed more aggressive behavior than fusion gene negative PTCs. Several novel rearrangements were identified. Fusion genes seem to be a molecular marker number one in pediatric PTC patients. PMID: 32495721 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractCataract is an ocular condition associated to the loss of the normal crystalline lens transparency, and its progression can result in a total loss of vision. The gold standard diagnostic method consists on qualitative observation through a slit lamp. This method has two limitations: incipient cataract may not be detected and the cataract hardness is subjectively evaluated. It may delay the diagnosis, or result on phacoemulsification surgeries complications when cataract hardness is not correctly estimated. On this study we present a new prototype for objective cataract detection and characterization, based on ultra...

Authors: Jiao J, Droste R, Drukker L, Papageorghiou AT, Noble JA Abstract Recent advances in deep learning have achieved promising performance for medical image analysis, while in most cases ground-truth annotations from human experts are necessary to train the deep model. In practice, such annotations are expensive to collect and can be scarce for medical imaging applications. Therefore, there is significant interest in learning representations from unlabelled raw data. In this paper, we propose a self-supervised learning approach to learn meaningful and transferable representations from medical imaging video with...

Authors: Droste R, Chatelain P, Drukker L, Sharma H, Papageorghiou AT, Noble JA Abstract Anatomical landmarks are a crucial prerequisite for many medical imaging tasks. Usually, the set of landmarks for a given task is predefined by experts. The landmark locations for a given image are then annotated manually or via machine learning methods trained on manual annotations. In this paper, in contrast, we present a method to automatically discover and localize anatomical landmarks in medical images. Specifically, we consider landmarks that attract the visual attention of humans, which we term visually salient landmarks...

CONCLUSION: For better therapeutic outcome, proper selection of drug moiety with its appropriate administration is the major requisite. With the advent of nanotechnology, the development of nanocarrier for dermatologic application has been successfully demonstrated in positioning the systemically administrated drug into topical targeted delivery. In a nutshell, to achieve successful treatment strategies towards psoriasis, there is a need to focus on the development of stable, non-toxic nanocarrier for topical delivery. Inclusion of the existing orally administered drug moiety into nanocarriers for topical delivery is propo...
