The Effect of Aberrant Rotation on Radiographic Patellar Height Measurement Using Canton-Deschamps Index: A Cadaveric Analysis

This study found that aberrant radiographic rotation in the axial plane resulted in a significantly different mean CDI measurement when compared with true lateral radiographs. All degrees of error in both directions and in both planes could have a clinically significant effect on CDI (≥0.1). Our findings confirm the importance of a perfect true lateral radiograph when measuring patella height.

The 2016 WHO classification of central nervous system tumors has included four molecular subgroups under medulloblastoma (MB) as sonic hedgehog (SHH), wingless (WNT), Grade 3, and Group 4. We aimed to develop machine learning models for predicting MB molecular subgroups based on multi-parameter magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) radiomics, tumor locations, and clinical factors. A total of 122 MB patients were enrolled retrospectively. After selecting robust, non-redundant, and relevant features from 5,529 extracted radiomics features, a random forest model was constructed based on a training cohort (n = 92) and evaluated on ...

Advanced imaging of the osseous structures of the wrist by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) yields powerful information regarding marrow composition and overall bone structure. Various forms of pathology, both benign and malignant, have unique marrow signal abnormalities that can be easily detected by MRI given its high sensitivity to radiographically occult processes. In particular, osseous pathology can be seen in the setting of traumatic, degenerative, congenital, infectious, and neoplastic conditions. The acuity or chronicity of these conditions can often be determined by imaging to aid in appropriate therapy. A thorou...

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) involvement is often silent in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Untreated, it can cause pain, growth disturbances, malocclusion, and skeletal deformities. Currently, combined clinical examination and radiographic imaging (i.e., magnetic resonance imaging, MRI) are necessary for diagnosis and treatment. However, imaging is not always feasible due to its high cost, access, occasional need for sedation and potential contraindications.1 Acoustic emissions (AEs) are the sounds produced from articulation in a joint.2 To measure the AEs of the TMJ, we built a custom headset with 2 uniaxial Dytran...

AbstractPurposeUsing an extended retinacular flap containing the blood supply for the femoral head, proximal femur osteotomies can be performed at the neck level increasing the potential of correction of complex morphologies. The aim of this study was to analyze the safety, clinical, and radiographic results of this intra-articular surgical technique performed in skeletally mature patients with a minimum follow-up of three years.MethodsFourteen symptomatic adult patients (16 hips) with a mean age of 26 years underwent FNO using surgical hip dislocation and an extended soft tissue flap. Radiographs and radial magnetic reson...

(Reuters Health)—Patients with a degenerative meniscus tear who get arthroscopic partial meniscectomy have similar five-year outcomes and increased risk of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) as without surgery, a small study suggests. Researchers in Finland randomly assigned 146 adults with degenerative meniscus tear confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to receive either arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM)...

Given the limited diagnostic accuracy of radiographs on presentation to the emergency department (ED), the management of suspected scaphoid fractures remains clinically challenging and poses an unknown economic burden to healthcare systems. We aimed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of immediate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the management of patients presenting with suspected scaphoid fracture to an ED in England.

Conclusion: Awareness of this uncommon manifestation would help differential diagnosis of periostitis and could help decrease the patient's anxiety. It should also be noted that periosteal reactions by benign entities could cause aggressive-looking periosteal reactions in post-operative regions.

CONCLUSIONS: With the current iteration of MRgFUS technology, skull-related parameters such as SDR, skull thickness, and angle of incidence should be considered when selecting patients suitable for MRgFUS capsulotomy. Lesions appear to follow morphological patterns similar to what is seen following MRgFUS thalamotomy. Retreatment appears to be safe, although additional cases will be necessary to further evaluate the associated safety profile. PMID: 32977311 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
