Carestream Dental Introduces Digital Dentistry Difference Education Campaign

Initiative will transform public understanding and conversation about dental tech; updated Carestream Dental branding reinforces digital focusCHICAGO—Carestream Dental, an industry-leading provider of integrated digital dental solutions, introduced its Digital Dentistry Difference public education campaign today at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting. Through this campaign, the company will directly educate consumers about the benefits of digital dentistry and will arm doctors with resources to prompt conversation with their patients, solving a significant awareness gap that research suggests is harming patient perception of doctors and the oral healthcare industry overall. According to the first Global Digital Dentistry survey —commissioned by Carestream Dental in November 2019 to measure public attitudes, perceptions and behaviors related to dental technology—patients across the globe believe that the oral healthcare industry lags behind both optical and orthopedic in terms of the technology used. Even more surprising, less than half of patients even believe their doctor uses very advanced technology.“It is a missed opportunity when you consider that doctors are investing in digital dentistry to improve patient care, yet many patients do not understand the level of advanced digital technology the industry offers, or how it can change their lives,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, C arestream Dental. &ldquo...

Conclusions: The results of this analysis show differences between PBS and PS/US with regards to two-fold MID changes in urinary function at 12 months, but no differences for average score declines over time. Future studies evaluating PRO measures between the two PBT modalities are warranted. PMID: 32258443 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of an automated workflow for multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) of the prostate compared with a manual mpMRI workflow. Materials and Methods This retrospective study was approved by the local ethics committee. Two MR technicians scanned 2 healthy volunteers with a prototypical highly automated workflow (Siemens Healthineers GmbH, Erlangen, Germany) and with a manually adjusted scan protocol each. Thirty patients (mean age ± standard deviation, 68 ± 11 years; range, 41–93 years) with suspected prostate cancer underwent ...

Introduction Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen increasingly incorporates diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequences. Whereas DWI can substantially aid in detecting and characterizing suspicious findings, it remains unclear to what extent the use of ultra-high b-value DWI might further be of aid for the radiologist especially when using DWI sequences with advanced processing. The target of this study was therefore to compare high and ultra-high b-value DWI in abdominal MRI examinations. Methods This institutional review board–approved, prospective study included abdominal MRI examinations of 70 onco...

Conclusions Spiral-TOFs may deliver high-quality intracranial vessel imaging thus matching the performance of conventional parallel imaging–accelerated TOFs (such as the SENSE). Specifically, imaging can be performed at unprecedented scan times as short as 1:32 minutes per sequence (70.12% scan time reduction compared with SENSE). Optionally, spiral imaging may also be used to increase spatial resolution while maintaining the scan time of a Cartesian-based acquisition schema. The CNR was decreased in spiral-TOF images.

CONCLUSION: For the CBCT unit used in this study, the low-dose CBCT protocol for TMJ examination was diagnostically comparable to the manufacturer-recommended protocol, but delivered a five times lower radiation dose. There is an urgent need to evaluate protocols for CBCT examinations of TMJ in order to optimize them for a radiation dose as low as diagnostically acceptable (the ALADA principle recommended by NCRP).

Authors: Cousiño JPC, Luna F, Torche M, Vigueras S, Torche E, Valdés G Abstract Background: The standard of care is to utilize intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM) of triggered electromyography (tEMG) during posterior lumbosacral instrumented-fusion surgery. IOM should theoretically signal misplacement of S1 screws into the neural L5-S1 foramen or spinal canal, utilizing screw stimulation, and recording of the lower limb muscles and the anal sphincter. Here, we evaluated when and whether anterolateral S1 screw malposition could be detected by IOM/tEMG during open posterior lumbosacral in...

Conclusion: Integrating preoperative nTMS motor mapping in treatment planning allowed us to reduce dose distributions to perilesional motor fibers while achieving salvage of motor function, lasting seizure freedom, and tumor control. These initial data along with our review of the available literature suggest that nTMS can be of significant assistance in brain radiosurgery. Prospective studies including larger number of patients are still warranted. PMID: 32257555 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
