I M Schmalfuss
Sinonasal endoscopy for treatment of benign sinonasal diseases is a well-established procedure. Recent advances in endoscope technology have substantially expanded its application with many institutions now offering resection of skull base lesions and sinonasal malignancies via the endoscopic approach. Its minimally invasive nature leads to faster recovery time, better cosmetic results, and fewer complications. Unfortunately, not all lesions involving the sinonasal region and skull base are accessible to sinonasal endoscopy...

There are many possible mechanisms for innovation and bringing new technology into the marketplace. The Stanford Biodesign innovation process is based in a deep understanding of clinical unmet needs as the basis for focused ideation and development. By identifying and vetting a compelling unmet need, the aspiring innovator can "derisk" a project and maximize chances for successful development in an increasingly challenging regulatory and economic environment. As a specialty founded by tinkerers, with a history of disruptive innovation that has yielded countless new ways of delivering care with minimal invasiveness, lower morbidity, and lower cost, interventional radiologists are uniquely well positioned to identify unmet needs and develop novel solutions free of dogmatic convention...

The rapid growth of minimally invasive, image-guided intervention has redefined the procedural management of multiple disease entities. The process of innovation which has characterized the growth of interventional radiology can be best described as "needs-based," whereby practicing interventionalists identify unmet clinical needs and subsequently invent solutions to achieve desired technical and clinical outcomes. Historically, catheters and other percutaneous devices were developed with rudimentary manufacturing techniques and subsequently translated to patients with relatively little regulatory oversight...

The most common complication after implantation of foreign material is infection, leading to implant failure and severe patient discomfort. Smoldering-infections proceed inapparently and might not get verified by radiological diagnostics. Early identification of this type of infection might significantly reduce the rate of complications. Therefore, we manufactured a microsensor strip in a hybrid of thin-film and laminate technology in a wafer-level process. It comprises electrochemical, amperometric microsensors for glucose, oxygen and lactate as well as an integrated reference electrode...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is the consequence of an aberrant hemostasis of the immune cells at the gut mucosal border. Based on clinical manifestation, laboratory tests, radiological studies, endoscopic and histological features, this disease is divided into three main types including Crohn's disease (CD), Ulcerative colitis (UC), and IBDunclassified (IBD-U). IBD is frequently presented in adults, but about 20% of IBD cases are diagnosed during childhood called pediatric IBD (PIBD). Some patients in the latter group emerge the first symptoms during infancy or under 5 years of age named infantile and very early onset IBD (VEO-IBD), respectively...

OBJECTIVES: Lung cancer typically starts as a near-spherical lesion, but as it grows it may acquire an irregular radiologic formation. RECIST is based on the assumption that tumors are spherical, and consequently, proportional changes of tumor volume and parallel changes in tumor diameter, and vice versa. Hence, a 30% decrease in diameter (2r) implies a 65% decrease of volume, and a 20% increase in diameter implies a 73% increase of volume. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We compared volumetric measurement based on multi-detector CT technology with calculated volume (CV) according to RECIST in a cohort of 43 patients with advanced, non-squamous cell type, lung cancer treated with a combination of platinum and pemetrexed...

OBJECTIVE: Simulation-based education has been shown to be an effective tool to teach foundational technical skills in various surgical specialties. However, most of the current simulations are limited to generic scenarios and do not allow continuation of the learning curve beyond basic technical skills to prepare for more advanced expertise, such as patient-specific surgical planning. The objective of this study was to evaluate the current medical literature with respect to the utilization and educational value of patient-specific simulations for surgical training...

Cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is a commonly used diagnostic tool for cardiovascular disease. Despite constant improvements to imaging technologies, the radiation dose to patients from CCTA remains a concern when using this procedure. There remains a need for optimisation of CCTA procedures and accurate dose monitoring to reduce the potential risk of cancer. Establishing diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) allows for the assessment of radiation dose variations, enabling strategies aimed at standardising doses across radiological centres...
