Macclesfield Cheshire SK10 3BL NEW BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY – none this month WEBSITES [Ctrl + click for links] From Aunt Minnie MR parameters divulge depth of acute hamstring injuries Professional athletes and dancers are as familiar with hamstring strains as they are with the bench press and barre, respectively. Two studies affirmed MR's major role in defining these injuries. Australian and British researchers used the modality on football players for reinjury risk stratification, while Swedish sports medicine specialists looked at hamstring strains in dancers during slow-speed stretching. While the MR results didn't hold all the answers, the imaging exam was still worth performing, according to the experts. Germany worried about excess use of CT scans BERLIN (Reuters), Jul 12 - Germans with no real health problems are needlessly taking in heavy doses of radiation because of an alarming increase in the use of computerized body scanning, the country's environment minister said. ording to a study by Deutsche Bank published last year. Germany's Federal Office for Radiation Protection wants a critical study of the situation and a halt to unnecessary CT scans, said German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel. PET scans useful in identifying colorectal cancer recurrence NEW YORK (Reuters Health), Jul 9 - Positron emission tomography using 18-fluoro-2-deoxy- glucose (FDG-PET) can identify colorectal cancer recurrence in patients with suspicious clinical or radiological findings but normal carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels, according to a report in the June 7th issue of the World Journal of Surgical Oncology. MR shows broad spectrum of findings in pregnant women with suspected appendicitis Although acute appendicitis is not terribly common in pregnant women, it does pose a diagnostic challenge because of anatomic and histologic changes that occur in these patients. CT carries a radiation risk while ultrasound, which is the established modality in this population, doesn't always deliver the whole story. Instead, Boston-based imagers have found success with MRI for evaluating the appendix, and more, in the gravid patient. Colonoscopy more often successful in mornings NEW YORK (Reuters Health), Jun 22 - Colonoscopy is more likely to be completed in its entirety when it's performed in the morning than in the afternoon, a Mayo Clinic study shows. The difference in success rates is most likely due differences in the adequacy of bowel cleansing before the procedure. Patient survey suggests preference for minimal-prep VC While colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., less than half of screening age individuals over 50 are examined for the disease. A new survey suggests that eliminating the cathartic bowel preparation might improve compliance screening rates. But the answers may not predict patients' real interest in screening, and the minimal-prep approach is not without complications, cautioned a radiologist experienced in virtual colonoscopy screening.

Status published online before print, 25 June 2007 Abstract Background-: The ability to image vascular inflammatory responses may allow early diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis. We hypothesized that molecular imaging of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) expression with contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU) could be used for this purpose. Methods and Results-: Attachment of VCAM-1-targeted and control microbubbles to cultured endothelial cells was assessed in a flow chamber at variable shear stress (0.5 to 12.0 dynes/cm2). Microbubble attachment to aortic plaque was determined by en face microscopy of the thoracic aorta 10 minutes after intravenous injection in wild-type or apolipoprotein E-deficient mice on either chow or hypercholesterolemic diet. CEU molecular imaging of the thoracic aorta 10 minutes after intravenous microbubble injection was performed for the same animal groups. VCAM-1-targeted but not control microbubbles attached to cultured endothelial cells, although firm attachment at the highest shear rates (8 to 12 dynes/cm2) occurred only in pulsatile flow conditions. Aortic attachment of microbubbles and targeted CEU signal was very low in control wild-type mice on chow diet. Aortic attachment of microbubbles and CEU signal for VCAM-1- targeted microbubbles differed between treatment groups according to extent of VCAM-1-positive plaque formation (median CEU videointensity, 1.8 [95% CI, 1.2 to 1.7], 3.7 [95% CI, 2.9 to 7.3], 6.8 [95% CI, 3.9 to 7.6], and 11.2 [95% CI, 8.5 to 16.0] for wild-type mice on chow and hypercholesterolemic diet and for apolipoprotein E-deficient mice on chow and hypercholesterolemic diet, respectively; P<0.001).
  7. 7. Conclusions-: CEU molecular imaging of VCAM-1 is capable of rapidly quantifying vascular inflammatory changes that occur in different stages of atherosclerosis. This method may be potentially useful for early risk stratification according to inflammatory phenotype. (C) 2007 American Heart Association, Inc.

We hypothesized the ACL could be injured in such knee positions because of its impingement against the intercondylar notch. We developed a three-dimensional geometric ACL impingement model through segmentation of MR images of individual knees. We investigated impingement by determining the deformed geometry and elongation of the ligament as it wrapped around the notch surface during impingement. When impingement did not occur, the gap width separating the ligament and the notch surface was computed. Tibial external rotation/abduction could cause the ACL to impinge against the lateral notch wall and elongate as it wraps around the surface of the notch wall. The impingement occurred between the middle portion of the ligament (at 45% +/- 8% [mean +/- standard deviation] of the ligament length) and the convex surface of the lateral notch wall. Considering the multiband fiber architecture of the ligament, the anteromedial band of the ACL sustained greater elongation during impingement and showed a smaller gap width from the notch surface than the intermediate band or the posterolateral band.
