Carestream Dental Announces New Integration with TDO ™
MONTREAL —Endodontists know that even the smallest details matter, like the number of clicks it takes to navigate their software and take a 3D scan. Carestream Dental is now handling the minutiae of imaging workflow with a new integration between TDO 12 Software and its CS 9600 CBCT system —so endodontists can focus on their patients’ intricate canal morphology.This unique integration allows TDO users to acquire CS 9600 scans directly from within the TDO platform, with no need to launch their CS Imaging software. This reduces the need for complicated software bridges or the risk of human error that comes ...

OHSU students make surprise discovery when dissecting body
When students in a gross anatomy class at Oregon Health& Science University dissected the chest cavity of a body last spring, they noticed something odd. The large vein that conveys oxygenated blood back from the abdominal cavity to the extremities was in an unusual place. When they probed further, they found that the liver and stomach were transposed, but her heart remained on the left side of her chest. The small intestine and large intestine wer e also switched left to right. What was even more… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Biotechnology headlines)

Small peptide-mediated self-recognition prevents cannibalism in predatory nematodes
Self-recognition is observed abundantly throughout the natural world, regulating diverse biological processes. Although ubiquitous, often little is known of the associated molecular machinery, and so far, organismal self-recognition has never been described in nematodes. We investigated the predatory nematode Pristionchus pacificus and, through interactions with its prey, revealed a self-recognition mechanism acting on the nematode surface, capable of distinguishing self-progeny from closely related strains. We identified the small peptide SELF-1, which is composed of an invariant domain and a hypervariable C terminus, as ...

Emerging Product Liability Concerns for Medical 3D Printing
Conclusions Advancements in additive manufacturing have the healthcare industry understandably excited about future possibilities. But as innovation continues to progress, industry standards, federal regulations, and case law lag behind, creating some uncertainties regarding liability. We will continue to keep a close eye on FDA guidance and emerging ASTM standards as they relate to additive manufacturing, as such developments will likely serve as a barometer for the treatment of 3D-printed devices in products liability law. The author would like to thank Dana J. Ash, chair of the Products Liability...

What Does the Liver Do?
Discussion The liver is one of the largest organs in the body, weighing just over 3 pounds in an adult. It is found in the upper right abdomen, under the right dome of the diaphragm. Grossly, it has asymmetric lobes with the right being larger than the left. The lobes are separated by a fibrous connective tissue band that also anchors the liver in the abdominal cavity. The gallbladder is located on the inferior surface of the liver and stores bile, which is then released into the duodenum. Microscopically, the liver cells are arranged in lobules with canals carrying blood vessels and bile ducts. At any moment about 10-13% ...

Book Review: Bodyfulness: Somatic Practices for Presence
I didn’t know how very much I needed this book until I opened it — one of the biggest gifts for a reader, and for a person who seeks understanding. That word bodyfulness is instantly recognizable as a side-stepping of mindfulness, but you’re wrong if you think it intends a substitution of body for mind. As you would expect from a book published by Shambhala, it embraces a much more comprehensive understanding of the lived experience.
