Accuracy of radiographic measurement techniques for the Taylor spatial frame mounting parameters
The correction accuracy of the Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) fixator depends considerably on the precise determination of the mounting parameters (MP). Incorrect parameters result in secondary deformities that re...
CONCLUSION: The combination of the segmental bone defect, electrocautery induced thermal damage of bone end periosteum, and delayed treatment can induce the development of atrophic non-union fracture model in rabbits that can replicate the clinical scenario.PMID:34336194 | PMC:PMC8313836 | DOI:10.1016/j.amsu.2021.102558
We present the case of a child who presented with suspected pen-nib in the nostril to highlight the importance of investigation and intervention in unwitnessed nasal foreign body and review the literature regarding X-rays in these cases. Fifteen papers were identified as per search parameters; 3 papers recommend the use of plain radiographs for nasal foreign bodies. We propose that in unwitnessed pediatric nasal foreign body insertion, a facial X-ray should be considered, especially if suspecting a metallic foreign body.PMID:34338035 | DOI:10.1177/01455613211033123
CONCLUSION: Oligoarticular PsA occurs in 39% of patients with PsA and is similar to polyarticular disease, with most patients having small joint involvement. The only predictor for progression to polyarthritis was a lower SF-36 mental health component.PMID:34334360 | DOI:10.3899/jrheum.210434
AbstractPurpose of ReviewPneumoconiosis due to silicosis is still present due to modern industries such stone carving, garment industry, and road construction. We aim to discuss how to accurately diagnose silicosis, appropriately risk stratify patients with silicosis, and discuss potential new pharmacotherapies that may be of potential use in the future.Recent FindingsAcute silicosis, chronic silicosis, and accelerated silicosis are 3 distinct clinical categories. Acute silicosis is the least common form and occurs with high exposures of silica dust in a short time frame. Patients with prolonged exposures at low concentrat...
Please do not call me a button pusher, for I am more than that.
The purpose of the study is to clarify the domain of radiography science. The main goal of science is building knowledge and developing ideas and theories that explain, predict, understand or interpret the phenomena investigated. Each discipline has its own perspective to view and study the phenomena of interest. The disciplinary perspective enables researchers in radiography science to reason and conceptualize phenomena, but it can also restrict them. The aim of this review was to investigate phenomena that are at the core of the discipline of radiography science.
The healthcare environment reflects and embeds sociocultural norms, including heteronormativity. Coming out for sexual and gender minority (SGM) people is often a process of continual identity management. There is evidence that lesbian and gay people (LG), both patients and healthcare professionals, engage in significant emotional work to manage who they tell about their sexual identity, and when. This qualitative study explored the experiences of LG radiation therapists (RTs) managing their sexual identity at work, and how this impacts relationships with co-workers and patients.
Knee Image Digital Analysis (KIDA) is standardized radiographic analysis software for measuring osteoarthritis (OA) characteristics. It was validated in mild OA, but used for severe OA as well. The current goal was to evaluate the performance of KIDA in severe OA.
ConclusionsThe non-flap therapeutic strategy could be cautiously considered as an alternative treatment for the large lower limb composite defects.
CONCLUSIONS: The ROC curves of the VSI were higher than those of the other specimen imaging methods. Full-3D specimen imaging can improve the correlation between the main lumpectomy specimen margin status and surgical pathology. The findings from this study suggest that using the VSI device for intraoperative margin assessment could further reduce the re-excision rates for women with malignant disease.PMID:34333705 | DOI:10.1245/s10434-021-10499-9
