To evaluate the influence of cholecystectomy on the flow dynamic pattern of bile in the extrahepatic bile duct by using cine-dynamic MRCP with spatially-selective inversion-recovery (IR) pulse non-invasively. 56 patients with cholecystectomy and 48 control subjects without cholecystectomy who underwent cine-dynamic MRCP with spatially-selective IR pulse at 1.5 T or 3 T (TR/TE, 4000 msec/500 msec; echo train spacing, 6.5 msec; echo train length, 172; section thickness, 50 mm; matrix, 320 × 320; field of view, 320 × 320 mm; bandwidth, 488 Hz; and inversion time, 2200 msec). In cine-dynamic MRCP, IR pulse with 20 mm width was placed on the common bile duct (CBD) to evaluate the movement of bile (antegrade and reversed bile flow). Cine-dynamic MRCP imaging was scanned every 15 s (imaging, 4 s; rest, 11 s) during 5 min to acquire a series of single-shot images (a total of 20 images). The frequency that antegrade or reversed bile flow was observed in the extrahepatic bile duct, and 5-point grading score based on the moving distance of antegrade or reversed bile flow were compared between the groups. Both groups were compared using the χ2 and Mann-Whitney U tests (P < 0.05 considered significant). Antegrade bile flow was observed more...Continue Reading

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 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.

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.
