Musculoskeletal infection: role of CT in the emergency department.
Musculoskeletal infection is commonly encountered in the emergency department and can take many forms, depending on the involvement of the various soft-tissue layers, bones, and joints. Infection mayExpand
Report of the NIH task force on research standards for chronic low back pain.
A task force was convened by the NIH Pain Consortium with the goal of developing research standards for cLBP, and results included recommendations for definitions, a minimum data set, reporting outcomes, and future research. Expand
Articular cartilage in the knee: current MR imaging techniques and applications in clinical practice and research.
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the most important imaging modality for the evaluation of traumatic or degenerative cartilaginous lesions in the knee. It is a powerful noninvasive tool forExpand
Anterior cruciate ligament ganglia and mucoid degeneration: coexistence and clinical correlation.
Anterior cruciate ligament ganglia and mucoid degeneration commonly coexist on MRI and are typically not associated with ligament instability. Expand
Imaging strategies for low-back pain: systematic review and meta-analysis
Clinicians should refrain from routine, immediate lumbar imaging in patients with acute or subacute low-back pain and without features suggesting a serious underlying condition, as results are most applicable to acute orSubacuteLow-Back pain assessed in primary-care settings. Expand
Medial meniscus extrusion on knee MRI: is extent associated with severity of degeneration or type of tear?
Substantial medial meniscus extrusion (> 3 mm) is associated with severe meniscal degeneration, extensive tear, complex tear, large radial tear, and tear involving the meniscal root. Expand
Inhibition of TGF-β signaling in mesenchymal stem cells of subchondral bone attenuates osteoarthritis
It is shown that transforming growth factor β1 is activated in subchondral bone in response to altered mechanical loading in an anterior cruciate ligament transection mouse model of osteoarthritis, and inhibition of this process could be a potential therapeutic approach to treating this disease. Expand
MR neurography: past, present, and future.
The historic perspective of MRN, the current imaging trends of this modality, and the future directions and applications that have shown potential for improved imaging and diagnostic capabilities are reviewed. Expand
Benign and malignant processes: normal values and differentiation with chemical shift MR imaging in vertebral marrow.
Results suggest that a decrease in signal intensity greater than 20% on out-of-phase images compared with in- phase images should be used as a cutoff threshold for normalcy to allow distinction between benign and malignant causes of vertebral marrow abnormalities. Expand
Toward best practices in radiology reporting.
The goals and current efforts of the Radiological Society of North America Radiology Reporting Committee are described. The committee's charter provides an opportunity to improve the organization,Expand
