Utility of computed tomographic imaging of the cervical spine in trauma evaluation of ground-level fall
TLDR
For ground-level fall, C-spine CT is overused and consistent application of CDR criteria would reduce annual nationwide imaging costs in the United States by $6.8 to $9.6 million and reduce population radiation dose exposure by 0.9 million mGy if applied across all Level I trauma centers. Expand
Utility of computed tomography imaging of the cervical spine in trauma evaluation of ground level fall.
TLDR
For GLF, C-spine CT is over-utilized and the consistent application of CDR criteria would reduce annual nation-wide imaging costs in the US by $13-19 million based on NEXUS, and would reduce population radiation dose exposure and imaging expenditures if applied across all level I trauma centers.

Abstract 309: Is Right Bundle Branch Block Associated with Poor Outcomes in the Setting of an Acute Coronary Syndrome? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis found that RBBB is associated with a more than 2-fold higher risk of all-cause mortality in patients with AMI at 30 days follow up. Expand
Yield of computed tomography of the cervical spine in cases of simple assault.
TLDR
Cervical spine CT is overutilized in the setting of simple assault, despite established clinical decision rules and adherence to CCR and NEXUS within this patient population would serve to reduce both imaging costs and population radiation dose exposure. Expand
Association between tears of the posterior root of the medial meniscus and far posterior femoral condyle osteoarthritis.
TLDR
PHMM RL tears are associated with advanced osteoarthritis of the far posterior femoral condyles of the FPFC, and Radiologists identifying FPFC osteOarthritis should look carefully for PHMM RL Tears. Expand
Anatomic Relationship and Imaging Relevance of the Perforating Branches of the Peroneal Vessels to the Anterior Talofibular Ligament.
TLDR
PBs are often present, have a predictable course, and may be useful to help optimize US probe positioning when assessing the ATFL. Expand
Abstract 14732: The Prognostic Implications of Right Bundle Branch Block in Healthy Population: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to determine the prognostic significance of RBBB in healthy population and found conflicting results regarding the significance of right bundle branch block. Expand
Abstract 118: Right Bundle Branch Block and Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Heart Failure: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
RBBB in patients with HF is associated with higher all-cause mortality in comparison to patients without inter-ventricular conduction defects, as well as LBBB patients in patients undergoing CRT setting. Expand
