Our previous research suggests that people reporting a stronger desire to maximize obtain worse life outcomes (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2007). Here, we examine whether this finding may be explained by the decision-making styles of self-reported maximizers. Expanding on Schwartz et al. (2002), we find that self-reported maximizers are more likely to show(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a consensus statement on the appropriate use of computed tomography (CT) for paranasal sinus disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A modified Delphi method was used to refine expert opinion and reach consensus by the panel. RESULTS After 3 full Delphi rounds, 33 items reached consensus and 16 statements were dropped because of not reaching(More)
Acute low back pain with or without radiculopathy is one of the most common health problems in the United States, with high annual costs of evaluation and treatment, not including lost productivity. Multiple reports show that uncomplicated acute low back pain or radiculopathy is a benign, self-limited condition that does not warrant any imaging studies.(More)
An outbreak of cryptosporidiosis occurred in goats ranging in age from two days to adult, on a well-managed closed farm. None of the other animals on the farm, including sheep, cows and buffalo, were affected. Morbidity approached 100 per cent in goats less than six months of age. Despite intensive supportive care, 238 goats died, ranging in age from two(More)
BACKGROUND To better understand the drainage patterns of the 3 largest superficial anastomotic veins (SAVs), namely, vein of Labbé (VL), the vein of Trolard (VT), and the superficial sylvian vein (SSV). To assess the dominance of the VL in the superficial cortical venous system, because this vein may be encountered in neurotologic surgery and its(More)
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a clinical entity characterized by compression of the neurovascular bundle, and may be associated with additional findings such as venous thrombosis, arterial stenosis, or neurologic symptoms. The goal of imaging is to localize the site of compression, the compressing structure, and the compressed organ or vessel, while excluding(More)
We described a patient with a pulsatile retroauricular mass that was caused by pathologically proved angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia. Angiography and contrast-enhanced CT were performed before surgical excision. Although rare, this entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hypervascular masses of the superficial head and neck.
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Temporal bone fractures (TBFs) are a frequent manifestation of head trauma. We investigated the prevalence of concurrent intracranial injuries (ICIs) and cervical spine injuries (CSIs) in a series of patients with TBFs and attempted to identify significant associations between current TBF classification systems and either ICI or CSI.(More)
