Evaluation of the relationship between appearances of the lingual foramen on panoramic radiography and cone-beam computed tomography
Conclusions: Radiological evaluation with panoramic radiographs alone may lead to inadequate assessments prior to surgical procedures involving the anterior mandible. Clinicians may consider using three-dimensional imaging for procedures with a risk of hemorrhagic and neurosensory complications such as dental implant placement in the anterior mandible.
CONCLUSION: The current study showed that man gender, diabetes and hypertension were the greatest risk factors for PAD. We conclude that man patients with diabetes and/or hypertension should be put under serious consideration for routine CTA examination when under evaluation for LSS and intermittent claudication.

CONCLUSION: The prodromal symptoms of COVID-19 were mild and most patients did not have limitations of daily activity. Viral shedding from URT was high from the prodromal phase. Radiological pneumonia was common from the early days of illness, but it was frequently not evident in simple CXR. These findings could be plausible explanations for the easy and rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the community. PMID: 32242348 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract In Brazil, rabies occurs mainly within an urban cycle, in which dogs and bats are reservoirs. This paper aims to report the occurrence of rabies in Callithrix sp. in Niter ói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In June 2019 a hybrid specimen was referred for diagnosis. The Direct Fluorescent Antibody, Mouse Inoculation, and Polymerase Chain Reaction tests were positive. A phylogenetic analysis was compatible with antigenic variant 3, characteristic of Desmodus rotundus. New stu dies should be undertaken to elucidate the real role of callitrichids in the urban rabies cycle.
Authors: Steinmetz RG, Maupin JJ, Johnson EB, Cantrell AJ, Fox JA, Bernhardt JA, Pasque CB, Teague DC Abstract INTRODUCTION: Extra-articular scapula body fractures have been shown to have good outcomes with nonsurgical management. What is not known is whether routine postinjury imaging of these fractures is necessary for monitoring healing and alignment. As the shift toward providing cost-effective healthcare continues, we sought to evaluate if routine postinjury imaging of these fractures resulted in any change in management while secondarily evaluating the imaging for fracture patterns at risk of displacement. ...
ConclusionsOur data demonstrate the presence of labral and acetabular cartilage lesions in ONFH patients, while images do not reveal the full extent of the tissue damage. These intra-articular pathologies can be associated with the outcomes after joint-preserving surgery.

With the development of recent technology, radiographs can be saved digitally, and angular measurements can be processed using various software packages. We developed an innovative computer-aided design method with Materialize Interactive Medical Image Control System software to measure hallux valgus angle (HVA), the intermetatarsal angle (IMA), and the distal metatarsal articular angle (DMAA) and assessed its concordance with traditional X-ray imaging methods. All measurements were carried out on 42 feet from 26 adult patients diagnosed with hallux valgus who were prospectively selected from July 2016 to April 2018.
ConclusionsAnterior wall depression was found to be associated with both maxillary sinus opacity and the visibility of the innominate line. Patients with AWD should be considered as susceptible to maxillary sinus diseases.
This study evaluated the frequency in which a hip dislocation is first diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) scan. A retrospective review was conducted of orthopaedic trauma patients presenting with hip dislocation to a Level 1 trauma center over three years. We recorded whether the patient first received pelvic radiograph (PXR) or CT scan of the pelvis, if the patient underwent closed reduction of the hip prior to CT scan, and if repeat pelvis CT scan was done. Of 83 hip dislocations, 64 patients were sent to CT scanner dislocated; 19 patients first had PXR and underwent closed reduction of the hip prior to CT scan. By ob...
