Anatomy and radiology of the areae gastricae

C E Mackintosh, L Kreel


The anatomy and radiology of the areae gastricae were studied in human and pig specimens and it was shown that the double contrast barium meal demonstrates a true picture of the undulating gastric mucosa, which is distinctive in appearance in the antrum body and fundus of the pig stomach. The importance of the type of barium used and the thickness of barrier mucus in the demonstration of the areae pattern is emphasised and the high incidence of duodenal ulcer in the grade 4 pattern and the low incidence in the non-coater is described. A knowledge of the anatomy and radiology of the areae gastricae pattern is central to the interpretation of the double contrast barium meal.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
