Kathryn Faguy
Breast inflammation can signal an array of breast conditions, from difficulties with breastfeeding to a rare and aggressive type of breast cancer. In some cases, these diseases resemble each other clinically and on imaging examinations. This article explains the inflammatory process and discusses a variety of localized benign inflammatory breast diseases, including lactational and nonlactational mastitis, ductal ectasia, idiopathic granulomatous mastitis, fat necrosis, and diabetic mastopathy. Inflammatory breast cancer also is presented, with an emphasis on its signs and symptoms, diagnosis, staging, multimodality treatment, and prognosis...

Computed tomography (CT) is a technical and complex diagnostic imaging modality. Radiologic technologists must understand the technology well enough to optimize dose and image quality and provide excellent patient care. This article reviews essential physical principles and technical aspects of CT, including physics related to radiation attenuation and CT numbers along with general technical concepts. In addition, the article reviews multislice CT technology.

Benjamin Roberts
Enhanced understanding of brain development has led to increased awareness of the links between disorders of neuronal migration and seizure disorders. A significant number of patients with intractable epilepsy have cortical malformations that originated during neuronal migration. Magnetic resonance imaging plays a primary role in the diagnosis and classification of neuronal migration disorders. These disorders include polymicrogyria, schizencephaly, lissencephaly, heterotopia, and focal cortical dysplasia. Imaging protocols continue to evolve to provide critical assessment of anatomic and physiologic traits of these disorders to better treat and prevent seizures...

Rebecca Peterson
Deglutition, or the act of swallowing, allows food and fluids to move through the upper gastrointestinal tract. Difficulty swallowing, known as dysphagia, causes a host of complications for patients. Fluoroscopic evaluation of dysphagia enables appropriate diagnosis and treatment. This evaluation commonly is accomplished with a swallowing dysfunction study, also known as a modified barium swallow procedure.

Tanya Nolan, Cynthia Loubier
PURPOSE: To identify the relationship between instructor feedback and student receptivity to it in a clinical setting. METHODS: Using a correlational design with a convenience sample of 132 students enrolled in radiologic science programs, the authors conducted an electronic survey that included a demographic section, the Feedback Environment Scale (FES), and the Feedback Orientation Scale (FOS). The first research question was whether a relationship existed between the aggregate predictor FES and criterion FOS variables...

PURPOSE: A systematic literature review was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of abdominal sonography and abdominal computed tomography (CT) in diagnosing acute appendicitis in adult and pediatric patients. METHODS: Peer-reviewed literature published between 1986 and 2014 was searched using multiple medical literature databases. Studies included in this review were conducted on human patients; included more than 50 patients; reported diagnostic values; evaluated pediatric patients, adults, or both (pregnant women excluded); and used histological results from surgery or clinical follow-up as a reference standard...

Bryant Furlow
Whole-body computed tomography (CT) is becoming a mainstay of trauma imaging because it can help emergency department staff quickly and comprehensively evaluate the extent and severity of traumatic injuries. However, routine use of whole-body CT for trauma imaging remains controversial because of the lack of clear guidelines for appropriate use, concerns about how to manage incidental findings, and the risk posed by the modality's relatively high radiation doses. This article describes the pathobiology, epidemiology, and assessment of polytrauma and discusses the diagnostic evaluation of trauma with whole-body CT scanning...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign
