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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
The clinical characteristics of the 4,170 hypertensive patients referred to the Dunedin Clinic from 1950 to 1989 have been compared for eight successive 5-year periods. A gradual decrease in the severity of referred hypertension and an increase in the proportion of patients already on treatment at the time of referral (currently 50%) were noted. For male(More)
