Heterozygous variants in BICD cargo adapter 2 (BICD2) cause autosomal dominant spinal muscular atrophy, lower extremity-predominant 2 (SMALED2). The disease is usually characterized by a benign or slowly progressive, congenital or early onset muscle weakness and atrophy that mainly affects the lower extremities, although some affected individuals show involvement of the arms and the shoulder girdle. Here we report unusual extremes of BICD2-related diseases: A severe form of congenital muscular atrophy with arthrogryposis multiplex, respiratory insufficiency and lethality within four months...

The impact factor (IF) for 2015 was recently released and this could be the time to once again reflect on its use as a metric of a journal. Problems and concerns regarding the IF have been addressed extensively elsewhere 1 2. The principle of the IF for a given year is that it represents the average number of citations of articles published in the journal in the two previous years.While authors frequently cite the IF as a determining factor for submission, the IF does not predict how many times individual articles will be cited...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Semisolid formulae are increasingly used in Japan to reduce the risks of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and aspiration pneumonia in patients undergoing percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). We compared the incidences of GER after the use of liquid or semisolid contrast agents during PEG. SUBJECTS/METHODS: Patients who planned to undergo PEG were randomly assigned to the liquid-first (LF) group (liquid contrast agent on day 1 after PEG and a semisolid contrast agent on day 2) or the semisolid-first (SF) group (reversed order)...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of our study was to investigate authorship trends in radiology journals, and whether International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommendations have had an impact on these trends. A secondary objective was to explore other variables associated with authorship trends. METHODS: A retrospective, bibliometric analysis of 49 clinical radiology journals published from 1946-2013 was conducted. The following data was exported from MEDLINE (1946 to May 2014) for each article: authors' full name, year of publication, primary author institution information, language of publication and publication type...

Recent changes in the journal European Radiology and the development of our sister journal Insights into Imaging are discussed. So too are problems related to redundant publications and assessments of quality. In particular, it must be realised that the Impact Factor of a journal is not the only parameter of success.

OBJECTIVES: Doses induced by individual dental examinations are low. However, dental radiography accounts for nearly one third of the total number of radiological examinations in the European Union. Therefore, special attention is needed with regard to radiation protection. In order to lower patient doses, the staff performing dental examinations must have competence in imaging as well as in radiation protection issues. This paper presents a systematic review about the core competencies needed by the healthcare staff in performing digital dental radiological imaging quality assurance...

UNLABELLED: The scientific community is becoming increasingly web-based and the role of online communication is continuously expanding. In this setting, one fact and two trends should be considered. The fact is the decision by Britain's government and by the European Union to make all papers deriving from projects that were paid for using public funds freely available online for reading and redistribution (an approach already widely used in the US). The trends are the 'open review' process and the future perspective of having online-only scientific journals; the balance of advantages and disadvantages of such an approach is debated...
