Carestream Dental Proud to Announce Partnership with Leading Ladies in Dentistry

This is the latest in Carestream Dental ’s initiative to elevate women in oral healthcareATLANTA —In its ongoing commitment to promote and support gender equality inside Carestream Dental and throughout the dental industry, Carestream Dental is pleased to have become the newest sponsor of Leading Ladies in Dentistry (LLD). This international organization aims to help young women in oral healthcare become leaders of their field. As its newest partner, Carestream Dental will share exclusive educational resources, webinars, access to mentors and general guidance with LLD members. Additionally, Dr. Shaveta Chalana, marketing specialist in Carestream Dental ’s APAC region, and Andreea Nita,regional product manager for intraoral imaging and service in Carestream Dental ’s EMEA region, have both been named Leading Ladies in Dentistry and now joina prestigious international board for clinical research and dental education. “As one of the only women leading a dental technology company, diversity and gender equality are issues I’m passionate about,” Lisa Ashby, CEO, Carestream Dental, said. “When I speak with women in the field, a common theme is how they wished they’d had other women role models to look t o when they were getting started. Now, Carestream Dental and Leading Ladies in Dentistry can connect more women in the oral healthcare field with mentors and guidance, unlike in the past.” “The cooperati...

Conclusions Higher cardiovascular endurance may mitigate the relationship between poorer subjective sleep quality and lower EC thickness. Future longitudinal studies should examine the interactive effects of sleep and fitness on brain health among older and more vulnerable populations.

Conclusions In conclusion, using contemporary methods to assess muscle architecture and calculate EFFPCSA did not enhance the muscle strength–size association. For understanding/monitoring muscle size, the major determinant of strength, these findings support the assessment of muscle volume, which is independent of architecture measurements and was most highly correlated with strength.

AbstractKey messagesThe pathogenesis of subretinal neovascularization (SRNV) due to macular telengiectasia (MacTel 2) has not fully elucidated. This optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based method can provide better understanding of the pathogenesis of SRNV due to MacTel 2.PurposeTo evaluate the choroidal vascular index (CVI) through optical coherence tomography (OCT) on eyes with proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel 2) or non-proliferative MacTel 2, and in healthy individuals.MethodsMacular enhanced depth imaging OCT scans on 42 eyes of 21 patients with non-proliferative MacTel 2, on 32 eyes of 20 patients ...

A 72-year-old woman presented with a 6-month history of anorexia, weight loss (-14kg) and myalgia in upper limbs. Clinical examination showed moderate proximal muscle weakness in upper limbs and crepitation at lung auscultation, but no skin rash nor joint involvement. Biological assessment disclosed increased C-reactive protein (68 µM) and creatine-kinase (3800 U/l) serum levels and anti-nuclear and -PL7 autoantibodies at immunological screening. Thoracic CT-scan showed abnormalities consistent with interstitial pneumonia.

A proportion of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) have behavioural and cognitive deficits. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has demonstrated reduced grey matter volume, altered white matter structural integrity and reduced perfusion compared to age-matched controls. Here we report the first results of a longitudinal study of brain structure in adolescents with DMD compared controls. 28 DMD and 20 control participants were scanned, with a 2- to 4-year time-window. 3D T1-weighted scans were acquired at 3 Tesla.

In this study, we analyzed changes in the thickness of five muscles from rest to contraction in ALS patients versus a control group. 25 ALS patients (mean age: 63.6yr [SD:14.4yr.]; 32% female) and 26 controls (62.5yr [SD:14.8yr]; 31% female) were analyzed. Transverse ultrasound (US) scans were taken at the biceps brachii (BB), forearm flexors (FF), thenar eminence (TE), quadriceps femoris (QF) and tibialis anterior (TA) with a GE-LogiqF8 device with linear transducer (12L-RS 5-13 MHz) with constant image optimization parameters.

Prednisolone and deflazacort have been proven to be effective in slowing down Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) disease progression. Previous studies in other pathologies demonstrated corticosteroids can cross the blood-brain barrier and cause brain atrophy. In this pilot study, we assessed the effect of both compounds on brain structure in boys with DMD. 3D T1-weighted images were obtained on a 3T Philips system at two different sites. Scans from 20 DMD patients (n=10 daily deflazacort (13.1 ±3.1y), n=10 10 days on/10 days off prednisolone (13.0±3.0y)) and 16 age-matched healthy controls (14.0±2.8y) w...

Quantitative MRI (qMRI) of skeletal muscles is a promising method to objectively assess muscle involvement in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and a potential outcome measure in clinical trials. qMRI data of the upper extremity (UE) muscles in non-ambulant DMD patients are limited. Therefore, we longitudinally assessed qMRI and UE functional outcome measures in this stage of the disease. 4-point Dixon MRI scans (3T) of the right upper arm, performance of the upper limb (PUL) version 2.0 and elbow flexion and grip strength were measured at baseline, 12 and 18 months follow-up.

AbstractPittsburgh compound B (PiB) radiotracer for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging can bind to different types of amyloid- β plaques and blood vessels (cerebral amyloid angiopathy). However, the relative contributions of different plaque subtypes (diffuse versus cored/compact) to in vivo PiB PET signal on a region-by-region basis are incompletely understood. Of particular interest is whether the same staging schemes fo r summarizing amyloid-β burden are appropriate for both late-onset and autosomal dominant forms of Alzheimer disease (LOAD and ADAD). Here, we compared antemortem PiB PET with follow-up...

AbstractBackgroundA significant number of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients develop osteogenic metastases (OMs) and/or brain metastases (BMs) after surgery, however, routine chest computed tomography (CT) sometimes fails to diagnose these recurrences. We investigated the incidence of BMs and OMs after pulmonary resection and aimed to identify candidates who can benefit from brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in addition to CT.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed medical records of 1099 NSCLC patients who underwent pulmonary resection between 2002 ...
