This observational study analyzes cervical spine clearance practices and the utility of computed tomographic scans of the cervical spine in intoxicated patients with blunt trauma.
This review reports on the use of breast-specific gamma imaging as an adjunct imaging method for detecting invasive lobular carcinomas.
This prospective observational study demonstrates that a noninvasive magnetic resonance imaging–based screening protocol in individuals at risk for pancreatic cancer is effective at determining cancer risk. Talamonti provides a related invited commentary.
Miller et al compare the effectiveness of ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of occult inguinal hernia.
Resnick et al investigated the accuracy of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the clearance of cervical spine injuries. See the Invited Commentary by Schreiber.
Fonseca et al determine whether MR imaging in pregnant patients with suspected appendicitis improves outcomes, minimizes LOS, and lowers hospital charges. They performed a retrospective review at a university tertiary referral center of pregnant patients seen during an 11-year period and followed up through delivery.
Hawley and colleagues determine factors associated with the use of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy in a population-based sample of patients with breast cancer. Rosenberg and Partridge provide discussion in a related Invited Commentary.
