CT and MRI of mycotic aneurysms of the abdominal aorta

Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography
J A MoriartyS S Tumeh

Abstract

In two of three patients with mycotic aneurysms of the abdominal aorta, diagnosis was delayed, with a fatal outcome in one patient. A combination of studies, such as indium white blood cell scanning, and anatomical imaging modalities, such as CT and MRI, may be necessary to arrive at the correct diagnosis.

CRISPR & Staphylococcus

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Staphylococci are associated with life-threatening infections in hospitals, as well as the community. Here is the latest research on how CRISPR-Cas system can be used for treatment of Staphylococcal infections.
