  • differential
  • This topic will discuss the differential diagnosis of non-acute lesions that affect the eyelid. (uptodate.com)
  • The dentist should utilize a process of differential diagnosis when evaluating radicular and/or periradicular lesion(s) and developing a treatment plan. (ada.org)
  • eyelid
  • Please help me our dr removal a lesion on the rt lower eyelid and on the left eyelid he remove a lesion on lt upper lid and lt lower lid would we code it 67800 e4 and 67801. (aapc.com)

  • brain
  • For example, a "skin lesion" or a "brain lesion" are named for the tissue where they are found. (wikipedia.org)
  • A space-occupying lesion, as the name suggests, has a recognizable volume and may impinge on nearby structures, whereas a non space-occupying lesion is simply a hole in the tissue, e.g. a small area of the brain that has turned to fluid following a stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lesions may be useful to researchers in understanding how the components of the brain produce cognition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research involving lesions relies on two assumptions: that brain damage can affect different aspects of cognition independently, and that a locally damaged brain functions identically to a normal brain in its "undamaged" parts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Humans with brain lesions are often the subjects of research with the goal of establishing the function of the area where their lesion occurred. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brain lesion theory generally refers to the theory that brain tumors and seizures are associated with aggressive and/or violent behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • humeral
  • It is an indication for surgery and often accompanied by a Hill-Sachs lesion, damage to the posterior humeral head. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Lesions are often classified by their tissue types or locations. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a sham lesion, an animal may be placed in a stereotaxic apparatus and electrodes inserted as in the experimental condition, but no current is passed, and therefore damage to the tissue should be minimal. (wikipedia.org)
  • This imbalance is due to a flooding of regulatory factors released by specific tumors, thus overwhelming the tissue repair system and resulting in these lesions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • Additional diagnostic tests relevant to the radicular and/or other periradicular lesion(s) of the patient may be performed and used by the dentist in diagnosis and treatment planning. (ada.org)
  • oral
  • Following oral evaluation (see limited, comprehensive, periodic, detailed and extensive evaluation parameters) and consideration of the patient's needs, the dentist should provide the patient with information about radicular and/or periradicular lesion(s) prior to obtaining consent for treatment. (ada.org)
  • damage
  • A molecular lesion or point lesion is damage to the structure of a biological molecule such as DNA, enzymes, or proteins that results in reduction or absence of normal function or, in rare cases, the gain of a new function. (wikipedia.org)
  • The theory states that people with damage or lesions to the ventromedial pre-frontal cortex are more inclined to display sociopathic behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • These lesions are a classic feature of primary biliary cholangitis, a condition often associated with marked hypercholesterolemia (see 'Hypercholesterolemia in primary biliary cholangitis (primary biliary cirrhosis)' ). (uptodate.com)
  • chest
  • A coin lesion is identifiable in an X-ray as appearing like a coin sitting on the chest of the patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • gross
  • Lesion size may be specified as gross or histologic depending on whether they are visible to the unaided eye or require a microscope to see. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • Another type of lesion is excitotoxic lesions, which can be caused by excitatory amino acids like kainic acid, which kill neurons through over-stimulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conditions
  • The dental and medical histories should be considered by the dentist to identify medications and predisposing conditions that may affect the management of radicular and/or periradicular lesion(s). (ada.org)
