A case report on transient global ventricular wall thickening secondary to acute myocarditis: Focus on the unique role of cardiac MRI
Conclusions: In summary, we report on a case of transient global ventricular wall thickening secondary to acute myocarditis, which rarely has been described previously. Our study demonstrates that transient ventricular wall thickening related to myocardial interstitial edema also can involve the right ventricular wall, a fact that is important in diagnosis and differential diagnosis. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance currently is considered the most comprehensive and accurate diagnostic tool in patients with suspected myocarditis.
CONCLUSIONS: The most common IED behavioural subtypes in these general population samples are associated with high rates of externalising disorders. This contrasts with the findings from clinical studies of IED, which observe a preponderance of internalising disorder comorbidity. This disparity in findings across population and clinical studies, together with the marked heterogeneity that characterises the diagnostic entity of IED, suggests that it is a disorder that requires much greater research.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that it is the effect that physical illness has on a person's life, in terms of disruption to daily activity, rather than the number of conditions that predicts suicide risk, especially at younger ages. Improved awareness and better management of mental wellbeing of individuals with physical health conditions may help to reduce suicides, especially in younger people.

Conclusion: Ensuring adequate vitamin D levels could be a method of focus for the augmentation or treatment of psychotic features in major depressive disorder. PMID: 32637180 [PubMed]
Psychological domain of quality of life, depression and anxiety levels in in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles of women with endometriosis: a prospective study.

Traumatic brain injury is known to cause depression, even years after it occurs. New research shows that repetitive hits to the head, even without concussive symptoms, can have a similar effect.Medscape Medical News
This study aimed to detect magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) texture parameters to predict the molecular signature of LrGGs using a commercially available software and routine MR images. Forty-three patients treated at Keio University Hospital who had World Health Organization grade II or III gliomas were included. All patients having preoperative T1- and T2-weighted, fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) and diffusion-weighted (DW) images were also included. Texture analyses of T2, FLAIR, and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) histograms were performed using a commercially available software. Texture parameters inc...
