Bryan Aves obituary
My father, Bryan Aves, who has died aged 92, established a successful career as a radiographer and radiotherapist despite having left school at 14 without qualifications. At one point he worked as an assistant for the physicistsOtto Frisch andJoseph Rotblat in the secret “tube alloys” experiments that led to the creation of the atom bomb, apparently without knowing what the project was about.Born in Brixton, south London, to Arthur, an accounts clerk for a dog biscuit factory, and Ellen (nee Stallard), a cleaner, Bryan had a cleft palate at birth; reconstructive surgery was not undertaken until he was 13.

What is DIOS?
Discussion Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor (CFTR). It is found in the epithelium of the bronchi, intestine, pancreatic duct and biliary tree. It regulates chloride, bicarbonate and water secretion. The heterozygous state helps prevent against secretory diarrhea, but the homozygous state causes thickened secretions in the hollow tubes of the lungs and digestive tract. There are multiple mutations (> 2000) which have been currently classified into classes depending on their protein production and activity. CF patients generally are l...

Why an FDA Panel Shot Down Intrinsic & #039;s Spinal Implant
Although FDA doesn't have to follow the recommendation of its advisory committees, a negative panel vote is never a good sign for a company hoping to bring a new device to the market. Intrinsic Therapeutic learned the hard way Tuesday that it's usually best if clinical trials follow the protocol that was initially communicated to the agency. Changes to the device trial, along with other concerns FDA staff raised, caused an advisory panel to vote against recommending approval for Intrinsic's Barricaid prosthesis, according to a MedPage Today report. The device is designed for partial annulus replacement in patients wit...

How Do You Perform the Adams Forward Bend Test?
Discussion Scoliosis is a lateral and rotational curvature of the spine from a plumb line hanging from C7 to the floor. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form. A review of scoliosis and its differential diagnosis can be found here. Depending on the age, 2-4% of adolescents have a positive Adams Forward Bend Test when assessed and ~2% may have idiopathic scoliosis of> 10 degrees. Curve progression relates to the magnitude of the curve and the patient’s age. Thus increased risk of progression occurs in patients with higher curvature magnitude at diagnosis, females (earlier start of puberty and therefore poss...

Accuracy of extraoral bite-wing radiography in detecting proximal caries and crestal bone loss.
CONCLUSIONS:The EB radiographs, which generate fewer images of overlapping proximal surfaces, have the advantage of detecting more carious lesions and bone loss findings than the IB radiographs do, but with the disadvantage of more false-positive diagnoses. Further research is needed to evaluate if the false-positive findings represent true carious lesions and bone loss.PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS:EB radiography is a promising technology, which has several advantages over traditional IB radiography. Clinicians should be aware of false-positive diagnosis of caries and bone loss with EB radiography. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)
