BACKGROUND Since the shift from a radiographic film-based system to that of a filmless system, the change in radiographic examination costs and costs structure have been undetermined. The activity-based costing (ABC) method measures the cost and performance of activities, resources, and cost objects. The purpose of this study is to identify the cost(More)
Intracranial hypotension causes the postural headache that sometimes follows lumbar puncture. When postural headache and associated symptoms occur after lumbar puncture, the diagnosis is usually obvious. However, similar symptoms may occur after minor trauma or without an obvious precipitating cause (spontaneous intracranial hypotension: SIH). SIH is rare,(More)
Treatment for hypertensive cerebellar hemorrhage still remains controversial as to whether direct surgical procedure is indicated or not. This is so even after the introduction of CT scan which easily demonstrates the location and size of the hematoma and the presence of hydrocephalus. In this paper, we present our experience of 20 patients with cerebellar(More)
A rare case of a variant type of the persistent primitive trigeminal artery associated with bilateral hypoplasia of the internal carotid artery was reported. Left common carotid arteriography revealed a thin left internal carotid artery terminated at the ophthalmic artery. Right common carotid arteriography showed that a narrow internal carotid artery gave(More)
We report an outbreak of human parvovirus B19 (HPV B19) infection affecting five nursing staff, four hospital office workers and one physiotherapist and its possible transmission between hospital staff. We investigated the presence of the virus in serum specimens using a nested PCR assay to confirm HPV B19 infection. The viral genome was detected in serum(More)
The perspectives of cancer patients are important for designing a medically and economically effective follow-up program to help in the rapid recovery of patients. However, research focusing on the perspectives of Japanese gynecological cancer patients on follow-up programs is extremely scarce. In this study, we explored the perspectives and expectations of(More)
In 1990, the Ministry of Health and Welfare of Japan advocated a criterion for the diagnosis radiographic bone atrophy in lumbar vertebrae. We carried out a comparative study of this criterion (i.e. , radiographic bone atrophy grading) and bone mineral density measured by posteroanterior and lateral dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. We investigated the(More)
OBJECTIVE To improve lectures and training programs on X-ray photography, we aimed to determine the questions that radiography students have regarding X-ray photography. METHODS We collected text data from questions on X-ray photography in radiography student reports after an X-ray photography training program. The text data were analyzed using content(More)
During our dissection of a Japanese elderly female cadaver, a double aortic arch with a deformed trachea was found in the cadaver. The ascending aorta was bifurcated to form the left (anterior) and right (posterior) aortic arches. Encircling and compressing the trachea and esophagus, they confluenced into the descending aorta. We concluded that it was a(More)
BACKGROUND Post-treatment follow-up visits for gynecological cancer survivors should provide opportunities for management of adverse physical/psychological effects of therapy and early recurrence detection. However, the adequacy of such visits in Japan is poorly documented. We qualitatively explored care-seeking experiences of Japanese gynecological cancer(More)
