Article: Renal disorders.[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The renal system and its many functions are vital to an individual's overall health. This article discusses the important functions the kidneys carry out day to day, as well as the many different types of diseases and anomalies that affect the renal system. Some of the risk factors that cause renal disease can be minimized with physician monitoring; however, when disease is present the radiologic technologist plays a vital role in diagnosis and, ultimately, the patient's recovery.Radiologic technology 01/2008; 79(5):433-46; quiz 447-9.

ABSTRACT: Currently used positioning landmarks for the lateral scapula and Y projections often yield inconsistent results and lead to repeats. To determine whether new positioning landmarks can help radiographers position the lateral scapula and Y projections more accurately. Following laboratory experimentation on dry bone specimens, a small pilot study was conducted in the clinical setting to test the new landmarks. Laboratory and clinical testing of the use of the acromial tip and superior angle of the scapula suggest that these landmarks are easier to use and improve accuracy of positioning.Radiologic technology 01/2008; 79(5):397-404.

ABSTRACT: (18)FDG is used widely to enhance PET and PET-CT images. However, this radiotracer tends to be taken up by brown fat, which can lead to false-positive diagnoses. Purpose To determine which patients, areas of the body and circumstances are more likely to be associated with false-positive diagnoses due to (18)FDG uptake in brown fat. A review of the literature was conducted on factors that contribute to false-positive diagnoses caused by (18)FDG uptake in brown fat. Brown fat commonly is found in women and children and can be located in the supraclavicular, mediastinal, paravertebral and perirenal areas of the body. Research has shown that these areas can be sources of a false-positive diagnosis because of (18)FDG uptake. Studies also have indicated that cold climate affects the uptake of (18)FDG, contributing to false-positive results on PET-CT examinations. This literature review should stimulate continued research into and awareness of the potential for false-positive PET findings in women and children during the winter months and in cold climates. This information is especially applicable to young female patients undergoing PET or PET-CT.Radiologic technology 01/2007; 78(5):361-6.
Article: Spinal curves and scoliosis.[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Scoliosis, an abnormal side-to-side curve of the spine with associated vertebral rotation, affects as many as 4% of all adolescents. Several different categories of scoliosis exist, and treatment can range from observation and follow-up to bracing and surgical correction. This article discusses special imaging series for scoliosis and emphasizes the need for proper radiation protection techniques for patients with scoliosis, most of whom are girls in their early to mid-teens.Radiologic technology 01/2007; 79(1):44-65; quiz 66-8.
