For radiosynovectomy , researchers have measured the retention time of yttrium-90 ( 90 Y) hydroxyapatite (particle size 1-10 μm) within the knee joint space and evaluated the treatment responses in knees with rheumatoid arthritis .
The European Society for Pediatric Nephrology (ESPN) Working Group on Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract hypothesized that the current diagnostic approach with regard to renal dysplasia was not homogeneous. Researchers also mindful of the observation that the appearance of kidneys on ultrasound (US) scanning is often currently used as a basis for the diagnosis of RD.
In this study, dermatologists characterize the effect of geographic variations in dermatologist density on the provision of dermatology procedures within Medicare. This was a cross-sectional study using the 2013 Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Database. Dermatology-related procedures were defined by the top 50 billing codes accounting for more than 95% of procedures billed by dermatologists.
An observational study published in BMJ Quality & Safety has suggested that better satisfaction with GP hours, for example, because of extended opening hours, does not affect the number of visits made to A&E in their geographical area. However, making the appointment booking process easier for patients was associated with slightly fewer A&E visits in that area.
In-office angiolytic laser procedures are effective for vocal fold polyps, though with occasional occurrence of minor adverse events, according to a study published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
New research conducted by physicians at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has revealed a dramatic increase in torticollis (an abnormal twisting of the neck) and plagiocephaly (a flattening of the head often seen in conjunction with torticollis) in infants exposed to opioid medications in utero . The study findings were published in The Journal of Pediatrics
In the study, scientists revealed that Crew members aboard the International Space Station will begin conducting research soon to improve the way we grow crystals on Earth. The information gained from the experiments could speed up the process for drug development, benefiting humans around the world.
The correlation of lip prints with ABO blood groups and fingerprints may be more useful in forensic science for the accurate identification of an individual than using the individual parameter. It also can narrow the search for an individual where there are no possible data referring to the identity of the subject, according to a new study.
The study explains that researchers have advanced a first-of-its-kind technique for creating entirely new classes of optical materials and devices that could lead to light bending and cloaking devices news to make the ears of Star Trek's Spock perk up. Using DNA as a key tool, the scientists took gold nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes and arranged them in two and three dimensions to form optically active superlattices. The study was published in the journal Science today.
A new study found that women who took a specially prepared blend of minerals and nutrients for a month saw their 3-mile run times drop by almost a minute. The women who took the supplement also saw improvements in distance covered in 25 minutes on a stationary bike and a third test in which they stepped on and off a bench, according to new research.
