Results A total of 62 foreign bodies were detected in 39 patients, of whom 19 were investigated with LODOX and 20 with conventional digital chest radiography. Thirty-three foreign bodies were located in the two upper abdominal quadrants, 21 in the lower quadrants-which are not visible on conventional digital chest radiography-seven in the oesophagus and one in the bronchial system. The sensitivity and specificity of digital chest radiography were 44.4% and 94.1%, respectively, and for the LODOX Statscan 90% and 100%, respectively. The calculated mean radiation dose for LODOX investigations was 184 μS, compared with 524 μS for digital chest radiography.. ...

Conventional chest radiography is a relatively low-cost, widely available modality performed with low radiation dose and remains mainstay of daily practice of chest radiology. However, the low sensitivity for small pulmonary nodule limits its application in detection of early lung cancer [3, 4]. With advances in digital chest radiography, development of new techniques including algorithms typically coupled with methodological innovations that use imaging physics to improve conspicuity, and image subtraction strategies has been shown to improve image quality of digital imaging systems over conventional film techniques [18, 19]. Dual-energy subtraction radiography is considered as one of emerging technologies that can distinguish bone from soft tissue by selective decomposition and visualization of bone and soft tissue images using the information about energy-dependent changes in the attenuation of different materials [20, 21]. Multiple studies have shown that dual-energy subtraction images ...

A prospective abnormal shadow detecting system detects a prospective abnormal shadow in an image on the basis of image data representing the image and outputs information on the prospective abnormal shadow detected by the prospective abnormal shadow detecting means. Whether the detected prospective abnormal shadow is malignant or benignant is judged, and the information on the prospective abnormal shadow is output in such a manner that whether the prospective abnormal shadow is malignant or benignant can be distinguished.
The featured Image represents a Chest X-Ray Image, taken from behind (PA = Postererior-Anterior). The Heart and Lungs are clearly visible. The 3-D effect enhances the appearance of the Ribs which enhances the viewers perception of the 3-Dimensional location of the organs. The smaller red lines within the Chest are the Blood Vessels traveling to and from the Lungs. They are accentuated to demonstrate their location within the X-Ray Image. The trachea can be seen in Blue as it directs air to and from the Lungs. The Lung tissue is also shown in blue. Air in the stomach is shown in green, located just below the rib cage on the right side of the X-Ray Image ...
Errors in chest radiology are caused by improper technique, by failure to interpret results correctly, or by inadequate knowledge of the patientss clinical history on the part of the radiologist.
Most illnesses caused by pandemic influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 virus (A/H1N1) infection are acute and self-limiting among children. However, in some children, disease progression is rapid and may require hospitalization and transfer to a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). We investigated factors associated with rapid disease progression among children admitted to hospital for A/H1N1 infection, particularly findings on initial chest radiographs. In this retrospective study, we investigated the records of children who had received a laboratory or clinical diagnosis of A/H1N1 infection and were admitted to the largest childrens hospital in Japan between May 2009 and March 2010. The medical records were reviewed for age, underlying diseases, vital signs on admission, initial chest radiographic findings, and clinical outcomes. According to chest radiographic findings, patients were classified into 4 groups, as follows: [1] normal (n = 46), [2] hilar and/or peribronchial markings alone (n = 64), [3]

Background: Certain pulmonary diseases are associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Whether pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural chest CT abnormalities reflecting these pulmonary diseases improve CVD risk estimation beyond what is possible with cardiovascular findings is unknown. To evaluate the incremental predictive value of pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural findings over cardiovascular imaging findings.. Methods: The cohort comprised 10 410 patients, who underwent diagnostic chest CT for non-cardiovascular indications. Using a case-cohort approach, CT scans from the cases and from a ≈10% random sample of the baseline cohort (n=1366) were visually graded for cardiovascular, pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural findings (Figure ). Using Cox proportional hazards analysis, two models were pre-specified: Model 1 comprising the cardiovascular imaging findings; Model 2 comprised the cardiovascular plus pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural imaging findings. We evaluated the incremental value of ...

Lung cancer CT screening is one of the most accurate diagnostic tools for finding lung cancer at an early stage, when it is most treatable. CT scans of the lung are able to detect small abnormalities in the lungs that could be the beginning stages of lung cancer. These indicators are often not visible on a routine chest X-ray. Since a CT lung screening offers the best opportunity for successful treatment of lung cancer before symptoms are noticed, more physicians are opting for lung cancer screening based on risk factors (like smoking and family history), rather than symptoms. ...

N2 - We aimed to use deep learning to detect tuberculosis in chest radiographs in annual workers health examination data and compare the performances of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) based on images only (I-CNN) and CNNs including demographic variables (D-CNN). The I-CNN and D-CNN models were trained on 1000 chest X-ray images, both positive and negative, for tuberculosis. Feature extraction was conducted using VGG19, InceptionV3, ResNet50, DenseNet121, and InceptionResNetV2. Age, weight, height, and gender were recorded as demographic variables. The area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve (AUC) was ...
Tree-in-bud appearance represents dilated and fluid-filled (i.e. pus, mucus, or inflammatory exudate) centrilobular bronchioles. Abnormal tree-in-bud bronchioles can be distinguished from normal centrilobular bronchioles by their more irregular appearance, lack of tapering or knobby/bulbous appearance at the tip of their branches. The tree-in-bud distribution is often patch throughout the lung. ...
USG can detect as little as-3-5 milliliters of fluid in the pleural cavity. It is usually echo-free and changes its shape with respiration. Transudates are usually sonolucent; exudates may contain floating echoes, fibrin strands, septations, s/o inflammatory, or neoplastic etiology. ...
2 years of age were obese, comparatively less than in pediatric patients from the national US cohort (30%). Lymphopenia was common and noted in approximately half of our children (mostly among those older than 4 years of age) compared to other reports (20). None of them had clinical myositis (21). No child had invasive bacterial co-infection, but 2/3rd of cases received systemic antibiotics. Although bacteriology cultures were less revealing, focal radiograph findings in our study and 2 recent reports on H1N1 illness demonstrating frequent concurrent bacterial infections in 29-43% of subjects underscore the importance of early recognition and treatment of bacterial infection on admission in SOIV illness (22). Abnormal chest radiographs were least common among youngest patients, while ½ of children , 5 years had abnormal chest x-rays, consolidation being the most common pattern as in adults. All children received Oseltamivir on day of admission and 9 pediatric patients received steroid therapy. ...

Methods Thirty-four patients with a diagnosis of CTD were included. Each patient underwent clinical examination, pulmonary function test (PFT), chest HRCT, and lung US by an experienced radiologist or rheumatologist. A second rheumatologist carried out US examinations to assess interobserver agreement. In each patient, US B-line lung assessment including 50 intercostal spaces (IS) was performed. For the anterior and lateral chest, the IS were the second to the fifth along the parasternal, mid-clavicular, anterior axillary, and medial axillary lines (the left fifth IS of the anterior and lateral chest was not performed because of the presence of the heart, which limits lung visualization). For the posterior chest, the IS assessed were the seventh to the eighth along the posterior-axillary and subscapular lines. The second to eighth IS were assessed in the paravertebral line. In each IS, the number of US B-lines under the transducer was recorded, summed, and graded according to the following ...

Tissue infiltration by neoplastic cells is rare and can involve various organs and tissues, from the bone marrow (described later) to the liver, spleen, lymph nodes, and possibly the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, skin, eyes, and central nervous system. Pulmonary involvement in the form of masses, nodules, diffuse infiltrate, or pleural effusions is relatively rare, since the overall incidence of pulmonary and pleural findings reported for WM is only 3 5%.78-80 Cough is the most common presenting symptom, followed by dyspnea and chest pain. Chest radiographic findings include parenchymal infiltrates, confluent masses, and effusions. Malabsorption, diarrhea, bleeding, or obstruction may indicate involvement of the gastrointestinal tract at the level of the stomach, duodenum, or small intestine.81-84 In contrast to multiple myeloma, infiltration of the kidney interstitium with lymphoplasmacytoid cell has been reported in WM,85 while renal or perirenal masses are not uncommon.86 The skin ...
PET/CT played a significant role in this case in confirming a primary malignant tumor within the lung as well as providing accurate initial staging leading to prompt initiation of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. FDG-PET/CT provided a rapid way to detect extra-thoracic metastatic disease that was not evident on the initial chest CT. One known limitation of FDG-PET/CT is that it is not as sensitive as MRI for detection of brain metastases.. The value of PET/CT for staging of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been recognized for some time (Lardinois, D., et al)1. A recent article by Aukema et al2 focuses upon the increasing value of PET/CT for diagnosis of NSCLC as well. The authors describe the use of PET/CT in a "fast track" outpatient setting used to differentiate pulmonary pathology in patients referred with pulmonary symptoms and/or abnormal chest X-ray. PET/CT demonstrated a high sensitivity (97%) for diagnosing malignancy, includ-ing primary lung cancer, in patients referred to this ...

An essential part of diagnosing heart disease in cats and dogs is a comprehensive physical examination. Physical examination of the animal suspected of heart disease was covered in the previous lecture, and this lecture will focus on the use of diagnostic tests in assessment of the cardiac patient in general practice.. Thoracic Radiographs. Thoracic radiographs are essential for any patient with clinical signs of tachypnoea or dypsnoea that are potentially referable to pulmonary pathology. Radiographs should be performed cautiously in any patient with respiratory distress, minimizing additional stress and preferably while supplementing with oxygen.. In the dog with congestive heart failure, mild pulmonary oedema is characterized by perihilar alveolar infiltrates. With more significant oedema, infiltrates are evident in the caudodorsal fields, occasionally with greater involvement of the right caudal lobe. In the cat, there is no alveolar pattern specific for cardiogenic oedema, and regional or ...

By Mariella 4 years ago. My quibble with all of the 24/7 shadow liners is how difficult they are to blend out. These set instantly so if you do want to blend for a softer look, you are left tugging away at your lids quite roughly. On the positive side, these are great, long-wearing shadows on their own and are great as bases for other shadows that crease or need help to show up or both! I loved these like made when I first got them but since then, and since finding the Tarte and Sephora shadow pencils which have all the good qualities and also remain blendable for a minute or so, I havent been using my UD pencils nearly as much. Having said that, Underground is a great brown pencil with so many uses. It doesnt lean red at all - its fairly neutral to cool in tone and so its a shade I can wear quite well on the lid or in the crease or as a "one step and out the door" type product.. ...

Little is currently known regarding sputum smear reversion (acid-fast smear becomes positive again after negative conversion) during anti-tuberculous treatment. This study aimed to evaluate its occurrence in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and identify factors predicting results of mycobacterial culture for smear-reversion of sputum samples. The retrospective review was performed in a tertiary referral center and a local teaching hospital in Taiwan. From 2000 to 2007, patients with smear-positive culture-confirmed pulmonary TB experiencing smear reversion after 14 days of anti-tuberculous treatment were identified. The 739 patients with smear-positive pulmonary TB had 74 (10%) episodes of sputum smear reversion that grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis in 22 (30%) (Mtb group). The remaining 52 episodes of culture-negative sputum samples were classified as the non-Mtb group. The anti-tuberculous regimen was modified after confirming smear reversion in 15 (20%). Fourteen episodes in the Mtb group and
