Advances in our understanding of lung adenocarcinoma have led to the recently revised classification of lung adenocarcinoma. This replaces the term bronchoalveolar carcinoma and introduces the concept of preinvasive, minimally invasive, and frankly invasive lesions to the classification. Although more work is required to validate these concepts, it is(More)
Over the past twenty years there has been a shift towards non-operative management (NOM) for haemodynamically stable patients with abdominal trauma. Embolisation can achieve haemostasis and salvage organs without the morbidity of surgery, and the development and refinement of embolisation techniques has widened the indications for NOM in the management of(More)
Advances in our understanding of the pathology, radiology and clinical behaviour of peripheral lung adenocarcinomas facilitated a more robust terminology and classification of these lesions. The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (IASLC/ATS/ERS) classification introduced new(More)
The role of cardiac computed tomography (CT) in the assessment and management of patients with suspected cardiac chest pain has been formally recognised in NICE guidance 95. When the technique and patient selection are appropriate, cardiac CT is a valuable diagnostic tool, particularly for patients with a low to intermediate pre-test probability of coronary(More)
Distribution of intrarenal blood flow has been measured in genetically hypertensive (GH) and normotensive (N) rats (aged 17--23 weeks) by a 133Xe washout technique without opening the abdominal cavity. Three different specific flow compartments were found in the rats. The distribution of the intrarenal blood flow to the fast compartment was reduced in the(More)
A method is described for measuring distribution of intrarenal blood flow in anesthetized rats by a xenon-133 washout technique that avoids the trauma of opening the abdominal cavity and manipulating the kidney. Precise delivery of the tracer to the kidney and fine collimation of the radiation reduces the amount of tracer required. Washout curve analysis is(More)
a a Question: A previously well, 73-year-old woman presented with a 5-month history of intermittent upper abdominal and right upper quadrant pain. Endoscopy revealed a partially obstructing duodenal tumour at the junction of the first and second parts of the duodenum. Histopathology confirmed a tubulovillous adenoma with high-grade dysplasia. Multidetector(More)
This multicentre study aimed to assess compliance of the reporting environment with best ergonomic practice and to determine the prevalence of musculoskeletal symptoms related to working as a radiologist. All 148 radiology trainees and consultants in 10 hospitals across the region were invited to complete a musculoskeletal symptoms and reporting ergonomics(More)
