48. Is Unilateral Renal Agenesis a Useful Screening Tool to Diagnose Mullerian Anomalies?

20-30% of women with Mullerian anomalies have coexistent renal anomalies and obtaining renal ultrasounds after a new diagnosis of Mullerian anomaly has become common practice among gynecologists. However, there are yet no formal recommendations to screen patients with a known congenital renal anomaly for a coexisting Mullerian anomaly. Friedman et al has proposed screening guidelines including pelvic ultrasound prior to menarche. The primary aim of this study is to provide data to support the proposed screening recommendations set forth by that prior review.

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...

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...

Authors: Chick G, Victor J, Hollevoet N Abstract Benign peripheral nerve tumours are rare lesions. The surgical treatment and clinical outcomes depend on the resectability. The aim of this retrospective study was to identify clinical or radiological features that may predict the surgical technique that should be used to improve clinical outcome. Eighty-two patients were diagnosed with solitary benign peripheral nerve tumours. Fifty-five tumours were surgically resectable, and 27 were nonresectable. Pre-operative magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound were used, which were predictive of the neural origin of the t...

Purpose of review The essential role of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) in lung cancer diagnosis and staging is now well established. With a growing body of evidence seen over the last decade, the objective of this article was to review the newest findings, provide evidence-based guidance to clinicians and identify areas for future research related to EBUS-TBNA and staging in lung cancer. Recent findings Recent literature regarding EBUS-TBNA for lung cancer staging was reviewed, with a focus on evidence published subsequent to the 2016 guideline on technical aspects of EBUS...
