Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is now a recognized method of imaging the breast. Unfortunately, there is lack of standardization in the MRI terminology used to characterize the appearance of breast lesions. Moreover, cases of mixed histologies are often imaged. We retrospectively identified cases of pure high-grade ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) using(More)
BACKGROUND Universal clinical screening for congenital dislocation of the hip to detect hip instability in neonates was introduced in the UK as a national policy in 1969, but its effectiveness is not known. We aimed to assess the extent to which surgery for congenital dislocation of the hip is the result of a failure of detection through screening or(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify current screening and management practices for congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH), and determine the extent to which ultrasound imaging of the hips is practised throughout the United Kingdom and the Irish Republic. METHODS Postal questionnaire to paediatricians responsible for the routine neonatal care of infants in all(More)
In 1969 universal clinical screening for neonatal hip instability was formally adopted in the United Kingdom with the aim of detecting and treating children considered to be at high risk of congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH). However, clinical screening is associated with both false positive and false negative diagnoses and has never been evaluated in(More)
BACKGROUND Nationally representative estimates of treatment rates for congenital dislocation of the hip were required to inform a review of the current United Kingdom screening policy. Cases were ascertained through an active reporting scheme involving orthopaedic surgeons and the existing British Paediatric Association Surveillance Unit (BPASU) scheme. (More)
The last decade has witnessed a resurgence of interest in the surgical treatment of metastatic spinal disease to compliment radiotherapy. A recent randomized controlled trial looking directly at this issue concluded strongly in favour of a combination of surgical decompression and radiotherapy, and there is now growing enthusiasm for surgery to play a role(More)
