We propose a mathematical model to describe the hemodynamic changes induced by a venous occlusion in a human limb. These hemodynamic changes, which include an increase in blood volume, a reduction in blood flow, and modifications to the oxygen saturation of hemoglobin, can all be measured noninvasively with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). To test the(More)
TNF alpha and IL-1 beta have previously been shown to increase the IGFBP-1 concentration in plasma and liver under in vivo conditions. The present study demonstrates that another inflammatory cytokine, IL-6, also elevates a 30- to 32-kDa IGF binding protein in the plasma of mice. Moreover, IL-6 produced dose- and time-dependent increases in IGFBP-1(More)
Muscle blood flow (MBF) and muscle oxygen saturation (SmO(2)) were measured at eight locations (four proximal, four distal) over a 4 x 8 cm(2) area of the vastus lateralis at rest and immediately after isometric, maximal quadriceps contraction using multichannel, frequency-domain, near-infrared spectroscopy. A venous occlusion was applied 20 s before the(More)
Delayed splenic rupture following conservative management of splenic injury is an extremely rare complication. We report a case of an adult patient who presented with delayed splenic rupture necessitating splenectomy, 2 months following blunt abdominal trauma. Imaging at the initial presentation demonstrated only minimal splenic contusion and the patient(More)
INTRODUCTION TO THE PROBLEM WE ADDRESSED Radiology reports provide effective communication about imaging studies or procedures between interpreting radiologists and the referring clinical providers responsible for patient care. The reports also serve to document, in patients’ medical records, the relevant imaging findings and impressions of imaging studies(More)
The intrauterine device (IUD) is gaining popularity as a reversible form of contraception. Ultrasonography serves as first-line imaging for the evaluation of IUD position in patients with pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or absent retrieval strings. This review highlights the imaging of both properly positioned and malpositioned IUDs. The problems associated(More)
