The PET Sandwich: Using Serial FDG-PET Scans with Interval Burst Suppression to Assess Ictal Components of Disease

ConclusionsIn appropriately selected patients, FDG-PET scans while in burst suppression may help dissect the underlying pathophysiologic cause of IIC findings observed on EEG and guide tailored therapy.

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: Egger B, Schirmer MD, Dubost F, Nardin MJ, Rost NS, Golland P Abstract We propose and demonstrate a joint model of anatomical shapes, image features and clinical indicators for statistical shape modeling and medical image analysis. The key idea is to employ a copula model to separate the joint dependency structure from the marginal distributions of variables of interest. This separation provides flexibility on the assumptions made during the modeling process. The proposed method can handle binary, discrete, ordinal and continuous variables. We demonstrate a simple and efficient way to include binary, discr...

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...

Conclusions: Excellent accuracy was found for types 1A, 1B, and 3C deformities (ends of spectrum). There was more variation among surgeons in differentiating between one-column (types 2A and 2B) and two-column (types 3A and 3B) deficiencies, as surgeons often failed to recognize the radiological signs of posterior column failure. This failure to identify column deficiencies can potentially alter kyphosis management. There was excellent consensus among surgeons in the recommendation of type 2 osteotomy; however, some variation was observed in their choice for other osteotomies.

Nothing like 2008. I have personally never seen a market carve it’s way down and rebound so quickly. Covid market has been the single best market I have ever seen in such short time. If you had the guts to invest heavily you accelerated your retirement. Not out of the woods, but the market wants to move up and we are approaching an election year with a president whose main focus is the market highs. Airlines and oil jumping. Still some value out there but drying up. Those who... V shaped recovery

This study reviews a single centre series of prospectively collected outcome measures to determine whether the Mobility performs better than the Scandinavian ankle replacement. The primary outcome measure was the survivorship. Secondary outcome measures consisted of complications and international scoring systems. 147 Scandinavian and 162 Mobility ankle replacements were reviewed at a mean follow up of 12.4 and 7.7 years respectively. The revision rate, which included liner exchange, component exchange or removal of implant was at 7 years 12.3% (18) for Scandinavian and 5.2% (8) for Mobility. The complication rate was 16.5...

Authors: Bund L, Tricard T, Alexis W, Schneider L, Karger C, Gicquel P Abstract Closed reduction and percutaneous osteosynthesis is an alternative to the open procedure for articular fractures of distal tibia of children. 38 patients were retrospectively reviewed. The measured parameters were : the score of Gleizes and the discrepancies between preoperative radiographic and CT scan measurements and postoperative radiographs. A significant correlation was found between the gap and the step-off in preoperative radiographic and CT scan. A significant decrease of the gap and step-off displacement was noticed after surg...

Authors: Cuenca-Llavall M, Pérez-Prieto D, Santiveri FJ, Garcia AL, Marqués F Abstract To determine whether local infiltration analgesia by catheter infusion was superior to conventional analgesia in terms of postoperative pain control after THR. A randomized double-blind clinical trial was performed. There were four groups based on catheter placement and the infusion constituents : 1) Intraarticular catheter + anesthetics ; 2) Intraarticular catheter +placebo ; 3) Subfascial catheter + anesthetics ; 4) Subfascial catheter + placebo. The anesthetic infusion contained bupivacaine (bolus + continuous pe...

Authors: Behaeghe O, Van Beeck A, Dossche L, Somville J Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the inter- and intraobserver reliability of a CT-based femoral anteversion measurement. 17 CT scans showing an abnormal anteversion on one side were presented to 6. Three measurements of all scans were obtained : two bilateral measurements and a third measurement with a flipped CT scan. Interobserver correlation results using the spearman test for left, right and anteversion difference had a mean of respectively : 0.918, 0.760 and 0.757. Intraobserver correlation had a maximum of respectively : 0,99, 0,89 and 0,94...
