AbstractReflecting the growing interest in early diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in recent years, the development of noninvasive and reliable fat quantification methods is needed. Dual-energy computed tomography (DE-CT) is a quantitative diagnostic imaging method that estimates the composition of the imaging target using a material decomposition technique based on the X-ray absorption characteristics peculiar to substances from DE-CT scanning using X-rays generated with different energies (tube voltage). In this review article, we first explain the basic principles and technical aspects of DE-CT. Then, we wi...

Cervical total disc replacement (CTDR) has gained popularity over the last 2  decades. It is a motion-preserving option to ACDF and is becoming more popular with patients and surgeons alike. Understanding complications that are unique to CTDR is crucial to performing successful, durable surgery. Careful patient selection and meticulous surgical technique are key to reducing complications associated with the surgery. Patient’s should be followed closely after surgery with routine flexion/extension x-rays for early detection of any complications that may occur. Most complications can be observed with close follow-...

AbstractIntroductionGlobal alignment analysis is of upmost importance in adult spinal deformity patients (ASD). Numerous parameters exist in the literature to measure global alignment based upon C7 or T1. One common limitation of these parameters is that they neglect the cervical segment which is essential in spinal compensatory mechanisms and in horizontal gaze preservation. A recent stereoradiography analysis of asymptomatic subjects introduced a new 3D parameter (ODHA), defined as the angle between the vertical reference line and the line joining the odontoid tip (OD) to hip axis center (HA). Thus, the goal of this stud...

By IAN MORRISON I should’ve been in Paris last week on vacation with my wife, instead I listened in to the Policies Techies VCS:  What’s Next For Healthcare conference (I’ll explain why later).  Matthew Holt and Jessica DaMassa did a magnificent job of assembling the Who’s Who of digital health tech to wax lyrical about what the new kids on the block were up to, where it is all headed, and what it will mean for the system. (Full disclosure Matthew and Jess are friends of mine, I hired Matthew from Stanford almost 30 years ago to join the Institute For The Future (IFTF) and have watched ...

CONCLUSIONS This study provides an understanding of the most common clinical and radiological features of patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 in Saudi Arabia. The majority of COVID-19 patients in our study cohort had either stable or worse progression of lung lesions during follow-ups; thus, they presented moderate disease cases. Elderly males were more affected by COVID-19 than females, with fever and cough being the most common clinical symptoms.PMID:34518506 | DOI:10.12659/MSM.932441

Conclusions: It is reasonable to expect that use of methylproamine analogues will help to ascertain the relative contributions of the high-LET effects (not protected), compared to other components, including bystander effects, that are subject to radioprotection. This could be a useful tool in evaluating Auger endoradiotherapy strategies.PMID:34519610 | DOI:10.1080/09553002.2021.1976862

Background: Recently, a skeletal maturity system using knee radiographs, named the modified Roche-Wainer-Thissen (RWT) system, has been developed using 7 discrete radiographic parameters. While the system has been shown to significantly outperform the Greulich and Pyle atlas, the effect of rotational variation of the knee radiograph on skeletal maturity determinations has not been studied. Methods: Normal knee computed tomography scans of 12 male children ages 10 to 16 years and 8 female children ages 8 to 14 years were obtained retrospectively, converted into 3-dimensional reconstructions, and then used to simu...
