Carestream Dental and Partner Mangano Digital Academy to Offer Digital Learning

ATLANTA —Carestream Dental and the respected Dr. Francesco Mangano of the Mangano Digital Academy have joined forces to deliver must-know digital dental topics directly to oral healthcare professionals. Thanks in part to Carestream Dental ’s sponsorship, Dr. Mangano will share eight to 10-minute-long videos each week starting May 19 for the rest of the year and into early 2022 on social media as part of his “Essentials of Digital Dentistry” series.  “Digital technologies are revolutionizing the world of dentistry, but there is often confusion regarding the basic concepts underlying hardware, software and workflows,” Dr. Mangano said. “The purpose of ‘Essentials of Digital Dentistry’ is to definitively clarify some doubts, which many c olleagues still have. Only from a solid base it is possible to unlock the potential of the digital dental revolution. " With an impressive goal of 40 videos covering the details of digital implant planning and treatment —the PLAN-SCAN-MAKE-DONE protocol—the series will be available across social channels and can be easily viewed by any oral healthcare professional. The accessible nature of the videos is ideal for asking questions and sparking engaging conversations among experts in the comments section. When dental practices around the world were forced to close in 2020, clinicians made the best of the shutdowns by focusing on advancing their education.

AbstractPurposeRecently coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused a global pandemic, characterized by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The aim of our study was to detect pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with severe form of COVID-19 infection using pulmonary CT angiography, and its associations with clinical and laboratory parameters.MethodsFrom March to December 2020, we performed a prospective monocentric study collecting data from 374 consecutive patients with confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, using real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase-chain-reaction (rRT-PCR) assay of nasopharyngeal swab specimens. We subs...

In this issue of the journal, Schmutte and colleagues (1) used large-scale claims-based data to show that the majority of older adults admitted for a suicide attempt, ideation or deliberate self-harm, were not seen within seven days of discharge be it a general or psychiatric hospital. Granted the data is from 2015, but with hospitals and mental health centers overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the current reality is likely much worse. Patients discharged from psychiatric hospitals fared somewhat better but the current shortage of psychiatric beds and extended boarding times spent in emergency rooms awaiting a psychiatr...

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 ...

Am J Nucl Med Mol Imaging. 2021 Aug 15;11(4):332-336. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTThe COVID-19 pandemic continues to influence every aspect of human life across the globe. It was reported that vascular angiogenesis of COVID-19 was elevated in patients with equally severe influenza virus infection. In this issue of AJNMMI, Farolfi et al. reported that there was lung uptake not related to prostate cancer in almost all COVID-19 patients who performed 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT scans and most of the lung uptake lesions were matched with typical CT patterns of COVID-19. With the advantages of having various tracers for whole-body imaging...

AbstractFrom March through December 2020, 100 autopsies were performed (Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary), with chart review, of patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection demonstrated by real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction testing (mean age, 74.73 years, range 40 –102 years; 50 males, mean age 71.96 years, and 50 females, mean age 77.5 years). Classified by the date of death, 21 cases were from the pandemic’s “first wave” (March through July) and 79 from the “second wave” (August through December). Three mortality c...

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — After 548 days with restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19, Denmark’s high vaccination rate has enabled the Scandinavian country to become one of the first European Union nations to lift all domestic restrictions. The return to normality has been gradual, but as of Friday, the digital pass — a proof of having been vaccinated — is no longer required when entering night clubs, making it the last virus safeguard to fall. More than 80% of people above the age of 12 have had the two shots. “I wouldn’t say it is too early. We have opened the door but we have al...
