The impact of antibiotic pre ‐treatment on diagnostic yield of CT‐guided biopsy for spondylodiscitis: A multi‐centre retrospective study and meta‐analysis
ConclusionsCT ‐guided biopsy in suspected spondylodiscitis obtains a positive microbiological yield in about half of patients. This was significantly higher in patients diagnosed with tuberculosis spondylodiscitis, but there was no significant difference with antibiotic pre‐treatment. Therefore, antibiotic pr e‐treatment should not preclude clinicians from pursuing a microbiological sample through CT‐guided biopsy. (Source: Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology)

Imaging of temporomandibular disorder and its mimics
SummaryTemporomandibular disorders are common, especially in young to middle ‐aged women, and most settle with supportive treatment. MRI is the accepted reference standard for the evaluation of the temporomandibular joint and is indicated when significant internal derangement is suspected, in those who do not respond to conservative management and when the diagnosis is no doubt. Multiple pathological processes involving the temporal bone, upper pharynx and neck can mimic temporomandibular disorder secondary to anatomical proximity and referred pain related to shared sensory innervation.

PET/CT features of lung SABR chest wall toxicity
SummaryStereotactic ablative radiotherapy offers a radical treatment approach for early stage lung cancers and an aggressive local therapy for pulmonary oligometastases from other tumour sites. Chest wall toxicity is one of the key dose ‐limiting toxicities for intrathoracic stereotactic treatments. The description of stereotactic radiotherapy chest wall toxicity using functional imaging has not been reported previously. A 56‐year‐old male received 60 Gy in 8 fractions delivered by volumetric modulated arc therapy for a T1bN0 M0 clinical left upper lobe lung cancer.
