OBJECTIVE To improve functional status among primary care patients. INTERVENTION 1) Computer-generated feedback to physicians about the patient's functional status, the patient's self-reported "chief complaint," and problem-specific resource and management suggestions; and 2) two brief interactive educational sessions for physicians. DESIGN Randomized(More)
A case of ancient neurilemoma arising in the oral soft tissues is presented. Histologic and electron microscopic studies indicate that this tumor is, indeed, a variant of the neurilemoma and that the Schwann cell is the cell of origin. At the ultrastructural level, the bulk of the lesion is composed of numerous reduplications of basal lamina accompanying(More)
Eagle first described vague orofacial pain associated with styloid elongation in 1937. Since that time, many authors have described the various clinical symptoms, radiographic features, and treatment regiments seen with Eagle's syndrome. Two cases of Eagle's syndrome treated surgically are presented in this article. Both extraoral and intraoral approaches(More)
Verrucous carcinoma is a distinctive, extremely well-differentiated, slow-growing variant of the squamous cell carcinoma. Forty-nine cases of this neoplasm were gathered from the Oral Pathology Service at the Emory University School of Dentistry from 1965 to 1979. The most common site of occurrence was the buccal mucosa, followed by the mandibular alveolar(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the time course of 18-fluorine fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) activity in multiple consecutively obtained 18F-FDG positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) scans predictably identifies metastatic cervical adenopathy in patients with oral/head and neck cancer. It is hypothesized that the activity will increase(More)
Renal length and volume were determined with B-mode ultrasonography and manual planimetry. The accuracy of the technique was prospectively evaluated in 11 children in whom concurrent sonograms and excretory urograms were obtained. Sonographic renal volume correlated better with urographic renal volume (r = 0.89) than did sonographic and urographic renal(More)
