C-shaped canal configuration in mandibular premolars and molars: Prevalence, correlation, and differences: An In Vivo study using cone-beam computed tomography
Conclusions: Although the prevalence of C-shaped canals is significantly higher in mandibular second molars, they are also found in mandibular premolars but in small percentages. No significant differences were found between both genders and both sides. Since they exhibit unpredictable morphology and differences across the root length, the use of small field CBCT is recommended when such anatomy is presented in a tooth indicated for root canal treatment for better management.

Does regression in treatment-induced liver fibrosis reflect noninvasive tests ? Assessing treatment results of hepatitis B patients who took potent antiviral drugs for 5 years
Conclusion: Liver biopsy is considered the gold standard for the treatment and follow-up of hepatitis B but may not be appropriate in all cases. Non-invasive tests may be effective in monitoring antiviral therapy. We demonstrated that non-invasive tests improved with antiviral therapy, which may be a reflection of treatment-regression in liver histopathology. (Source: Nigerian Journal of Clinical Practice)
