PURPOSE To systematically review the outcomes of comprehensive medical school programs designed to increase the rural physician supply, and to develop a model to estimate the impact of their widespread replication. METHOD Relevant databases were searched, from the earliest available date to October 2006, to identify comprehensive programs (with available(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to review the added value of dual-energy CT for characterization of incidental lesions discovered during routine abdominal CT. CONCLUSION Dual-energy CT allows acquisition of virtual unenhanced images, iodine maps, and virtual monochromatic images, all of which can aid in characterizing incidental lesions at the(More)
To evaluate MRI features of response of primary extremity liposarcoma (LPS) to neoadjuvant radiation therapy (RT) with histopathologic correlation. In this IRB-approved study including 125 patients with extremity LPS treated with neoadjuvant RT from 2000 to 2013, MRI of the primary tumour in 18 patients (5 pleomorphic LPS, 13 myxoid LPS) before and after RT(More)
Radiation therapy (RT) plays an important role in multimodality therapy for soft-tissue sarcomas (STS). RT treatment paradigms have evolved significantly in recent years, and many different complex RT modalities are commonly used in STS. These include external-beam RT, intensity-modulated RT, stereotactic body RT, and brachytherapy. Imaging is essential(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Viewers of electronic education exhibits at the 2013 and 2014 Radiological Society of North America meetings had the opportunity to "like" exhibits, as one might "like" a Facebook or an Instagram post. The purposes of this study were (1) to evaluate for a relationship between exhibit popularity and receiving an award or(More)
Dual energy CT (DECT) is a technology that is gaining widespread acceptance, particularly for its abdominopelvic applications. Pancreatic pathologies are an ideal application for the many advantages offered by dual energy post-processing. This article reviews the current literature on dual energy CT pancreatic imaging, specifically in the evaluation of(More)
Increasing prevalences of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) increase cardiovascular risks. Since poor diet and inadequate exercise are primary behavioral causes of obesity and T2DM, our objective was to examine health beliefs and associations with diet, exercise, and metabolic syndrome (MetSyndr) characteristics. A total of 117 overweight and obese family(More)
The purpose of this article is to help the practitioner ensure early diagnosis and response to emergencies in the first trimester by reviewing anatomy of the developing embryo, highlighting the sonographic appearance of common first-trimester emergencies, and discussing key management pathways for treating emergent cases. First-trimester fetal development(More)
Traumatic finger injuries account for a substantial number of emergency visits every year. Imaging plays an important role in diagnosis and in directing management of these injuries. Although many injuries can be managed conservatively, some require more invasive interventions to prevent complications and loss of function. Accurate diagnosis of finger(More)
Dual-energy computed tomography (CT) relies on material-dependent x-ray absorption behavior from concurrently acquired high- and low-kilovolt peak data and has a range of imaging applications. This article focuses on use of dual-energy CT in assessment of bowel disease. After a summary of relevant dual-energy CT image acquisition and postprocessing(More)
