CT-guided biopsy of pulmonary and mediastinal lesions is safe and effective. It is most valuable in those cases in which fluoroscopic guidance is not possible due to resolution or anatomic consideration. CT guidance permits puncture of lesions as small as 0.5 cm, typically not seen fluoroscopically. Sensitivity of biopsy in malignant lung lesions in our(More)
Several lymphatic reporter mouse lines have recently been developed to significantly improve imaging of lymphatic vessels. Nonetheless, the usage of direct visualization of lymphatic vessels has not been fully explored and documented. Here, we characterized a new Prox1-tdTomato transgenic lymphatic reporter mouse line, and demonstrated how this animal tool(More)
This report describes a rare case of a patient with increased urinary dopamine excretion in association with bilateral carotid body tumours. Excretion of adrenaline, noradrenaline, metadrenaline, normetadrenaline and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxymandelic acid (HMMA) were within the reference ranges, and an (123)I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scan showed uptake in(More)
A 5-month-old Holstein heifer had clinical signs of tricuspid valve insufficiency and histopathologic evidence of endocardial fibroelastosis. The calf had a 3-week history of weight loss, abdominal distention, dyspnea, and decreased appetite. Physical examination revealed signs of right-sided heart failure, and a systolic murmur (II/VI) was heard best over(More)
The mining industry located along the fall line region of central Georgia has been and remains as one of the largest global exporters of the clay mineral kaolinite. Among the kaolin deposits in that region, the Cretaceous Buffalo Creek formation and the Eocene Jeffersonville member contain the most commercially viable kaolin to extract and process for(More)
Chronic wounds affect over 4 million individuals and pose a significant burden to the US healthcare system. Diabetes, venous stasis, radiation or paralysis are common risk factors for chronic wounds. Unfortunately, the current standard of care (SOC) has a high relapse rate and these wounds continue to adversely affect patients' quality of life. Fortunately,(More)
Improving patient safety is vital for all hospitals due to increasing public reporting and pay-for-performance reimbursement. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains a leading cause of preventable mortality accounting for 5 per cent of inpatient deaths. The purpose of this study was to outline the process of implementing standard VTE prophylactic order sets in(More)
OBJECTIVE We wanted to determine the optimal dose of intravenous penicillin (PCN) in the third trimester of pregnancy for the prophylaxis of group B Streptococcus. STUDY DESIGN Healthy women in the third trimester with a singleton pregnancy were recruited. Eligibility included no previous penicillin or cephalosporin allergy and no history of renal(More)
