The inadequacy of standard radiographs in detecting flaws in the cement mantle. (1/471)

Radiological assessment of the cement mantle is used routinely to determine the outcome of total hip replacement. We performed a simulated replacement arthroplasty on cadaver femora and took standard postoperative radiographs. The femora were then sectioned into 7 mm slices starting at the calcar, and high-resolution faxitron radiographs were taken of these sections. Analysis of the faxitron images showed that defects in the cement mantle were observed up to 100 times more frequently than on the standard films. We therefore encourage the search for a better technique in assessing the cement mantle.  (+info)

Radiography in the home. (2/471)

Modern portable x-ray units are light enough to be easily carried to the ill patient in his home; their output is sufficient for radiographs containing useful diagnostic information to be made of the chest, hip, and other regions, especially if a grid is employed. The skull is considered to be beyond the range of this method of examination, because of the long exposure times required, but gross lesions can be demonstrated in the oesophagus and stomach if barium is given. The radiation hazard is not considered to be a contraindication if appropriate precautions are taken.  (+info)

Safety of radiographic imaging during pregnancy. (3/471)

Maternal illness during pregnancy is not uncommon and sometimes requires radiographic imaging for proper diagnosis and treatment. The patient and her physician may be concerned about potential harm to the fetus from radiation exposure. In reality, however, the risks to the developing fetus are quite small. The accepted cumulative dose of ionizing radiation during pregnancy is 5 rad, and no single diagnostic study exceeds this maximum. For example, the amount of exposure to the fetus from a two-view chest x-ray of the mother is only 0.00007 rad. The most sensitive time period for central nervous system teratogenesis is between 10 and 17 weeks of gestation. Nonurgent radiologic testing should be avoided during this time. Rare consequences of prenatal radiation exposure include a slight increase in the incidence of childhood leukemia and, possibly, a very small change in the frequency of genetic mutations. Such exposure is not an indication for pregnancy termination. Appropriate counseling of patients before radiologic studies are performed is critical.  (+info)

No impact from active dissemination of the Ottawa Ankle Rules: further evidence of the need for local implementation of practice guidelines. (4/471)

BACKGROUND: Local implementation strategies are often required to promote consistent adherence to clinical guidelines, but they are time consuming and expensive. The authors tested an educational intervention designed to increase use of the Ottawa Ankle Rules, a widely publicized set of clinical guidelines previously shown to reduce the use of radiography for diagnosis of acute ankle injuries. METHODS: The study consisted of a quasi-experimental, before-and-after comparative analysis. Trained experts provided 1-hour educational sessions and supplied resource materials on the Ottawa Ankle Rules to health care professionals from 63 Ontario hospitals. Participants were asked to evaluate the intervention. The authors then compared, for periods before and after the educational sessions, the use of ankle radiography for adults with acute ankle injury in 10 hospitals that received the educational intervention and reported no (n = 5) or some (n = 5) prior use of the rules and in 5 control hospitals, which declined the educational intervention because they were already implementing the rules. RESULTS: Although participants gave highly positive appraisals of the Ottawa Ankle Rules and the educational sessions, there was no reduction in the use of ankle radiography for the 10 hospitals that received the educational sessions (73% before and 78% after the intervention, p = 0.11). In contrast, use of radiography decreased significantly, from 75% to 65%, in the 5 control hospitals (p = 0.022). INTERPRETATION: Even when a dissemination strategy is well received and involves a widely accepted clinical guideline, the impact on behaviour in clinical practice may be small. In addition to broad dissemination, an active local implementation strategy is necessary to encourage physicians to adopt clinical guidelines.  (+info)

Anatomy of picture archiving and Communications systems: nuts and bolts--image acquisition: getting digital images from imaging modalities. (5/471)

Digital acquisition of data from the various imaging modalities for input to a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is discussed. Essential features for successful clinical implementation including Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) compliance, radiology information system (RIS)/hospital information system (HIS) interfacing, and workflow integration are detailed. Image acquisition from the inherently digital cross-sectional modalities are described, as well as digital acquisition of the conventional projection x-ray using computed radiography (CR), direct digital radiography (DDR), and film digitizers.  (+info)

Prospective survey to verify the Ottawa ankle rules. (6/471)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if the Ottawa ankle rules are valid in the setting of an urban teaching hospital in the UK. DESIGN: A prospective survey. SETTING: Accident and emergency department, Western Infirmary, Glasgow from 1 April 1995 to 31 August 1995. SUBJECTS: 800 patients with an acute ankle injury. RESULTS: 800 patients were used for analysis of which 584 (73%) were radiographed; 70 (12%) had fractures, 63 (10.8%) of which were significant. Four of these patients with fractures fulfilled none of the Ottawa ankle rules criteria for plain radiography. CONCLUSION: Application of the Ottawa ankle rules to this group of patients would have produced a sensitivity of 93.6%. Although useful, decision rules should be used with care and not replace clinical judgment and experience.  (+info)

Radiographic assessment of osteoarthritis: comparison between existing methodologies. (7/471)

Radiographic sensitivity for quantifying the rate of change in joint space width (JSW) for DMOAD trials, is influenced by the following, which vary between methodologies for imaging hip, knee and hand. Radio-anatomical plane of measurement JSW measurement precision is improve when the (i) joint is in a normal functional position, (ii) X-ray beam is centred on the joint space and (iii) plane of measurement is orthogonal to the beam and articular surfaces, and parallel to the film. Measuring instrument Manual methods, e.g. callipers with graduated magnifying lens or digitisation tablets, suffer from observer variability but are practical and can reliably measure JSW. Computer-based techniques provide precise and accurate JSW measurements. Site of measurement Minimum JSW may lie within the joint's load transmitting region. JSW area and mean area assess the entire JS width. Radiographic magnification This effect is present in hip and knee radiographs and when not corrected, requires increased study numbers. Type of X-ray unit Microfocal radiography's improved spatial resolution increases measurement precision and can decrease study numbers.  (+info)

Embedding guidelines into direct physician order entry: simple methods, powerful results. (8/471)

Kaiser Permanente in the Northwest Region has implemented a comprehensive outpatient computer-based patient record (CPR). Using this system, clinicians electronically order laboratory tests, radiology tests, and prescriptions. Clinicians also use this comprehensive CPR to document encounters, code diagnoses and procedures, maintain problem lists, and to send patient-specific messages and referrals to other medical providers. Healthcare for our entire membership of 440,000 covered lives is now provided through this system [1]. Implementation of a comprehensive CPR with direct physician order-entry provides the opportunity to embed guidelines into the ordering process. This article describes the underlying theme and various simple but effective methods we use to embed guidelines into the ordering process. Our experience demonstrates the powerful effect of these simple methods to reduce unnecessary variation and to reduce cost while maintaining or improving the quality of care delivery.  (+info)

Introduction. Current education and training in radiography in South Africa does not address the need for training in the specialisation fields of diagnostic radiography sufficiently. Methods. To address this problem, a needs assessment was conducted by means of quantitative questionnaires, qualitative interviews and a focus group discussion. The main aim of the needs assessment was to determine the need for a postgraduate qualification in the specialised fields of radiography. The possible structure of such a programme and the preferred mode of delivery were also investigated. Results. The results of the study emphasise the need for structured postgraduate programmes in the different specialisation fields of diagnostic radiography. Conclusion. Responding to this validated need for postgraduate qualifications in the specialisation fields in the profession, recommendations are made towards the development of such postgraduate programmes in the higher education framework in South Africa, promulgated in

This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of radiographers screen-reading mammograms. Currently, radiologist workforce shortages may be compromising the BreastScreen Australia screening program goal to detect early breast cancer. The solution to a similar problem in the United Kingdom has successfully encouraged radiographers to take on the role as one of two screen-readers. Prior to consideration of this strategy in Australia, educational and experiential differences between radiographers in the United Kingdom and Australia emphasise the need for an investigation of Australian radiographers screen-reading accuracy. Ten radiographers employed by the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute with a range of radiographic (median = 28 years), mammographic (median = 13 years) and BreastScreen (median = 8 years) experience were recruited to blindly and independently screen-read an image test set of 500 mammograms, without formal training. The radiographers indicated the presence of an abnormality using ...

As a general rule, one should assume that no diagnostic or therapeutic intervention is safe in the first trimester of pregnancy other than surgery. If the mother develops life-threatening complications during the first trimester that require radiation therapy or systemic chemotherapy, and these interventions cannot be safely delayed, a recommendation should be made for an abortion. Indeed, radiation, even in the form of diagnostic radiography, should be avoided throughout pregnancy. No exposure to radiation is safe, and efforts to shield the fetus with barriers placed on the abdomen cannot block internal scatter radiation. It is safest to omit radiation exposure of any kind. Fortunately, its use is seldom an essential component of treatment before delivery. ...

In digital image processing Medical Imaging is one of the most significant application areas. For visualizing and extracting more details from the given image processing of medical images is much more supportive. Several techniques are existing nowadays for enhancing the quality of medical image. Contrast Enhancement is one of the most functional methods for the enhancement of medical images. Various contrast enhancement techniques are in practice, some are as follows: Linear Stretch, Histogram Equalization, Convolution mask enhancement, Region based enhancement, Adaptive enhancement is already available. Based on characteristics of image choices can be done. On comparing my approach with the existing popular approaches of adaptive enhancement and linear stretching, it has been concluded that the proposed technique is giving much better results than the existing ones. Further, the technique is seed dependent so selection of seed is very important in this algorithm. A seed chosen in darker regions will

First, Coronary Artery Disease: The article overlooked evidence uncovered in 1999 (Part 1, below) that x-ray-induced mutations in the coronary arteries may well have had a major causal role in initiating and/or accelerating atherosclerosis (Part 4, below). This is called Hypothesis-2 in the 1999 study. Second, Cancer: A credible warning (also based on the 1999 research described in Parts 3 and 4), is that accumulated lifetime exposures to medical x-rays --- which include CT and fluoroscopic exams --- may constitute a causal co-actor in more than 50% of current cancer mortality in the USA. This is called Hypothesis-1 in the 1999 study. The over 50% estimate is at least as scientifically credible as the popular estimate that medical x-rays account for only 1% of American cancer (Doll and Peto 1981 p.1256, Table 20). I defend this assertion below (Part 3). Both estimates are ballpark estimates, meaning that the absence of appropriate data necessitates the incorporation of several important ...
In addition to the Transfer policy published in the CCC and TI Catalog, students applying for transfer into the radiography program shall meet the general admission, progression/dismissal, and graduation requirements according to radiography specific policies. Due to a standardized radiography curriculum in the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS), a lateral transfer from a hospital or university based, private or out-of-state radiography program cannot be guaranteed. Neither can a lateral transfer from an NCCCS radiography program be automatically assumed. Therefore, serious students need to be willing to spend two more years @ CCCTI in pursuit of their dream.. The radiography director evaluates the students radiography transcript to determine the total number of possible radiography courses or credits allowed for transfer credit. Transfer students must meet the 2.5 GPA academic requirement in all RAD and related courses in the radiography curriculum. In the best interest of the ...
Simply defined, radiation therapy is the application of specific kinds of ionizing radiation with the intent to treat a disease, which is usually but not always cancer. This differs substantially from using radiation to gather diagnostic information, as in the case of medical X-rays, CT scans, and nuclear medicine. All ionizing radiation has the potential to cause cellular damage, but in diagnostic radiology, doses are kept as low as possible to protect against cellular damage while still getting the diagnostic information needed. Radiation therapy, however, uses doses of ionizing radiation with the express intent of killing cells in as controlled a manner as possible.. To understand how radiation therapy works, its important to know a few simple facts about cancer. Cancer is not one disease, of course, but all cancers share a trait: uncontrolled cell growth. Cancer cells divide more or less continually and proliferate, often forming solid masses called tumors. Cancer cells also tend to be ...

The magnitude of the risks from low doses of radiation is one of the central questions in radiological protection. It is particularly relevant when discussing the justification and optimization of diagnostic medical exposures. Medical X-rays can undoubtedly confer substantial benefits in the healthcare of patients, but not without exposing them to effective doses ranging from a few microsieverts to a few tens of millisieverts. Do we have any evidence that these levels of exposure result in significant health risks to patients? The current consensus held by national and international radiological protection organizations is that, for these comparatively low doses, the most appropriate risk model is one in which the risk of radiation-induced cancer and hereditary disease is assumed to increase linearly with increasing radiation dose, with no threshold (the so-called linear no threshold (LNT) model). However, the LNT hypothesis has been challenged both by those who believe that low doses of radiation are

Oral health care in pregnancy is often avoided and misunderstood by physicians, dentists, and patients. Evidence-based practice guidelines are still being developed. Research suggests that some prenatal oral conditions may have adverse consequences for the child. Periodontitis is associated with preterm birth and low birth weight, and high levels of cariogenic bacteria in mothers can lead to increased dental caries in the infant. Other oral lesions, such as gingivitis and pregnancy tumors, are benign and require only reassurance and monitoring. Every pregnant woman should be screened for oral risks, counseled on proper oral hygiene, and referred for dental treatment when necessary. Dental procedures such as diagnostic radiography, periodontal treatment, restorations, and extractions are safe and are best performed during the second trimester. Xylitol and chlorhexidine may be used as adjuvant therapy for high-risk mothers in the early postpartum period to reduce transmission of cariogenic bacteria to

Every second resident of Europe will, on average, undergo a medical x-ray examination each year. Diagnostic radiology is responsible for the largest proportion of artificial radiation exposure for the European population. The introduction of digital radiography promises to reduce this burden, but to what extent remains unclear.
Diagnostic radiology has come a long way since the discovery of A New Kind of Rays in Würzburg by Professor Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in November 1895. Professor Röntgen called the unknown rays X rays, but they are also, most appropriately and less mysteriously, referred to as Röntgen rays after their discoverer. In the last decades, imaging techniques using X rays has developed rapidly and play an important role in modern health care.. The benefit of an X-ray examination for a patient could be assessed as how the patients risk situation is affected. The medical condition or illness leading to the examination may imply an increased risk of deteriorating health. Correct diagnosis and proper treatment, based on the information in the X-ray image, could lower the patients risk. For the individual the risks associated with the X-ray examination itself are small as is the radiation risk (patient absorbed dose) for well-designed imaging systems. Since the number of individuals undergoing X-ray ...
The NHS in NW London took a day out to support and encourage radiographers to reach their career goals and aspirations, at our Diagnostic Radiographer Education Day on Saturday 28 January.

Radiologic Technology is a health care profession whose practitioners work in hospitals, imaging centers, clinics and private physicians officers. The radiologic technologist (radiographer) is a member of the health care team who works directly with the patient and the physician, performing a wide variety of diagnostic x-ray procedures.. The role of the graduate radiographer may be that of staff radiographer, special imaging radiographer, supervisor, administrator or educator, depending upon the level of education and experience obtained.. The Bakersfield College Associate in Science Degree Radiologic Technology Program provides concurrent didactic and clinical education. The Program is 24 months in length (excluding prerequisite coursework) and begins each year in June. Students should anticipate making a fulltime commitment to the Program during the school year. Summer sessions are required and semesters/terms may be scheduled beyond the regular college session dates.. The Program is ...
Image Interpretation, also known as Interpretation of Radiological Images (e-IRI), is an e-learning project to support radiographers and other healthcare professionals with interpreting and offering clinical evaluations on radiographs and other imaging modalities. The project is a collaboration between the Society and College of Radiographers and Health Education Englands award-winning e-Learning for Healthcare programme.. The project originally focused on sessions to support image interpretation of standard radiographs of the musculoskeletal system, but has since grown in size and scope. In 2016 21 new interactive sessions have been published on topics ranging from Dignity and Continuing Professional Development to Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Gastro-intestinal and Genito-urinary imaging. New modules have also been added to the programme; Cardiac Imaging, Neurointervention, Dental and Maxillo-facial Radiography and Accessory Projections..

Risser 0 is the first Risser stage indicating significant remaining growth. It can be concerning when scoliosis is diagnosed at Risser 0 as the risk of curve progression is greatest during this time. Here we discuss how to manage scoliosis at Risser 0.
When compared to other common cancers, lung cancer patients are less likely to survive their cancer. This is often due to a delay in the recognition of the condition and performance of the chest X-ray (CXR). Delayed diagnosis reduces treatment choices because the cancer may have spread further and the person may have become too ill for treatment to be given safely. It is hoped that by diagnosing lung cancer sooner this will help improve survival, help with patient satisfaction and potentially extend the range of treatment options, which are more limited in delayed diagnosis. CXRs are often used when lung cancer is suspected, but there can be long delays for the results to be available to the patient and the GP. Radiographers traditionally take the X-ray, but they are reported by a radiologist, a medical specialist. Recent studies show that radiographers who have completed further training can report CXRs with similar accuracy to radiologists. This project will help to reduce delays in diagnosis ...
