Abstract

To evaluate the mandibular canal using volume interpolated breath-hold examination (VIBE) sequencing in patients with cysts and tumors of the mandible. Twenty-five patients with mandibular cysts and tumors were recruited for a study in the authors' institution to compare the role of multidetector row computed tomography with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in jaw lesions. Of these 25 patients, VIBE was performed in 12 patients (age range, 16 to 52 yrs; 11 male and 1 female patients) and formed the study group. The status (normal/destroyed/attenuated) and position of the inferior alveolar canal (normal/displaced) on panoramic reconstructed computed tomographic (CT) images and curved multiplanar reformatted (MPR) images reconstructed from VIBE images were analyzed. The contralateral normal mandibular canal was used as the control in these patients. In all 12 patients, the inferior alveolar canal on the normal side was visualized as a hyperintense structure in relation to the hypointense bone on the curved MPR VIBE images. In 9 patients, the inferior alveolar canal was equally well visualized on panoramic CT and curved MPR VIBE images. In 2 patients, the inferior alveolar canal was better visualized on curved MPR VIBE images; in ...Continue Reading

COVID-19

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.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
