What does the public think of the NHS?
It ’s been quite a year for the NHS - it just turned 70, had a winter crisis like never before, got over junior doctor strikes, but then was hit by a series of scandals about breast screening, and now opiate prescriptions. At the same time, we’ve seen demonstrations in favour of the service and e ven widespread public backing for more money. So... (Source: The BMJ Podcast)

The first midsize black holes, and the environmental impact of global food production
Astronomers have been able to detect supermassive black holes and teeny-weeny black holes but the midsize ones have been elusive. Now, researchers have scanned through archives looking for middle-size galaxies and found traces of these missing middlers. Host Sarah Crespi and Staff Writer Daniel Clery discuss why they were so hard to find in the first place, and what it means for our understanding of black hole formation. Farming animals and plants for human consumption is a massive operation with a big effect on the planet. A new research project that calculated the environmental impact of global food production shows hi...

Ultrasonography versus computed tomography scan for endoleak detection after endoluminal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a life threatening condition and patients might need lifelong monitoring after treatment. Ultrasonogaphy is sometimes used for this and a new Cochrane Review from June 2017 looks at its accuracy. The review was done by a team from Italy and Kathy Mahan from the Cochrane Neurosciences group, also based in Italy, tells us what they found. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

" Band Together " -- The Discovery Files
When doctors diagnose a torn ligament, it's usually because they can see ruptures in the ligament's collagen fibers, visible on a variety of different scans. However, they also often treat patients with many of the symptoms of a tear, but whose ligaments don't show this kind of damage. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania are using network science to gain new insights into these " sub failure " injuries, which can lead to pain and dysfunction despite the lack of obvious physical evidence. The mechanisms that lead to these symptoms happen on a microscopic level and can't be detected by existing clinical...

Head Trauma
Minor head trauma usually does not cause significant brain injury. To be safe, clinicians often obtain head CT scans to ensure no major injury is present. For minor head trauma (Glascow coma scale 13-15), the risk to benefit ratio for head CT is usually not in favor of getting CT scans. When the Canadian head CT rule or New Orleans Criteria are negative, there is a very small risk for missing a significant brain injury. Joshua Easter, MD from the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Virginia who authored a JAMA Rational Clinical Examination article on this topic is interviewed as is Frederick Rivara, from ...
