Article
Objectives: To investigate the association between the timing and adequacy of antibiotics administered to patients presenting with culture-positive sepsis and septic shock to the ED and in-hospital mortality and/or intensive care unit (ICU) admission. Methods: Multicentre retrospective cohort study of ED presentations at four metropolitan hospit...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Appropriate and timely administration of intravenous fluids to patients with sepsis-induced hypotension is one of the mainstays of sepsis management in the emergency department (ED), however, fluid resuscitation remains an ongoing challenge in ED. Our study has been undertaken with two specific aims: firstly, for patients with sepsis,...
Article
This study sought to achieve radiation dose reductions for patients receiving uterine artery embolisation (UAE) by evaluating radiation dose measurements for the preceding generation ( Allura ) and upgraded ( Azurion ) angiography system. Previous UAE regression models in the literature could not be applied to this centre’s practice due to being ba...
Article
Objective To investigate the association between timing and volume of intravenous fluids administered to ED patients with suspected infection and all-cause in-hospital mortality. Methods Retrospective cohort study of ED presentations at four metropolitan hospitals in Sydney, Australia, between October 2018 and May 2019. Patients over 16 years of a...
Article
The purpose of this study was to introduce a continuous quality improvement (CQI) program for radiation dose optimisation during uterine artery embolisation (UAE) and assess its impact on dose reduction and image quality. The CQI program investigated the effects of optimising radiation dose parameters on the kerma-area product (KAP) and image quali...
Article
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is overexpressed in many types of cancer, including epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), and its expression has been found to correlate with advanced stage and poor prognosis. The EGFR ligand amphiregulin (AREG) has been investigated as a target for human cancer therapy and is known to have an autocrine role...
Article
Introduction The Royal Australian and New Zealand College radiology training programme is a 5‐year programme with a vast curriculum including reporting and research requirements. Undertaking training can be stressful for trainees who must balance their educational needs and work responsibilities. We undertook the first independent survey of New Sou...
Article
PurposeThe current study aimed to evaluate the appropriateness of the decisions made to order diagnostic imaging for emergency trauma patients.MethodsA retrospective audit of 642 clinical decisions for 370 non-consecutive trauma cases was conducted at a level 1 adult trauma centre. Radiographs and computed tomography investigations were compared fo...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction Uterine artery embolisation (UAE) is regarded as a safe and effective treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids and/or adenomyosis. Dose reduction during UAE is critical for this reproductive‐age patient population to minimise the risks of radiation‐induced effects. The aim of this study was to identify the predictors of radiation dos...

Background Radiology education is limited in undergraduate Medicine programs. Junior doctors might not have the necessary background to effectively order and interpret diagnostic imaging investigations. Furthermore, junior doctors are often time-poor, balancing clinical commitments with ongoing learning, leadership and teaching responsibilities. Pr...
Article
Rationale and objectives: Radiology education is suited to delivery via e-learning which may be used to fill gaps in knowledge and help prepare medical students for internship. There is limited evidence of effectiveness of adaptive tutorials, a form of e-learning in a senior medical student cohort. Materials and methods: A randomized mixed metho...
Article
Purpose: The utilisation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is rapidly evolving and MRI is increasingly being used for the evaluation of young patients with clinically suspected appendicitis. Current literature reports a positive predictive value of 92% and a negative predictive value of 98%; however, there is no standardised protocol and these fi...
Article
Purpose: Young females presenting with acute lower abdominal pain is a frequent occurrence in emergency departments and there is usually a variety of differential diagnosis. In the attempt to limit exposure to ionising radiation, computed tomography is most often avoided in this group of patients, thus ultrasound (US), observation and diagnostic la...
Article
Aim: To assess trends in medical imaging requests before and after the 4-hour rule commenced and to assess the imaging time component of emergency department (ED) length of stay (LOS). Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of ED patients and imaging requests 1 year prior to and 3 years after implementation of the 4-hour rule (April to De...

Telehealth appears to be an ideal mechanism for assisting rural patients and doctors and medical students/registrars in accessing specialist services. Telehealth is the use of enhanced broadband technology to provide telemedicine and education over distance. It provides accessible support to rural primary care providers and medical educators. A tel...

This study investigated the effect on learning and student experience of using online multimedia module to prepare students for a ”flipped lecture”.
Article
In 2008 a new clinical anatomy curriculum with integrated medical imaging component was introduced into the University of Sydney Medical Program. Medical imaging used for teaching the new curriculum included normal radiography, MRI, CT scans, and ultrasound imaging. These techniques were incorporated into teaching over the first two years of the pr...

Background: The University of Sydney Medical Program is a four-year graduate program. Students have face-to-face instruction in a range of biomedical and clinical subjects during the first two years and spend the last two years at their hospital placements. In 2008, a new clinical anatomy curriculum was introduced into the Medical Program in respon...

As part of its commitment to supporting low socio-economic students, Faculty of Science at Charles Sturt University (CSU) explored faculty-wide implementation of online resources to support its practical classes. In order to do so, review of freely available and commercially produced resources was conducted. In addition survey of staff and students...

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has reported that personnel involved in F-111 fuel tank maintenance were concerned that exposure to a range of chemicals during the period 1977 to mid- 1990s was the cause of health problems, including cancer. Particular concern was directed at SR- 51®, a desealant chemical mixture containing the following four...

Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality among the gynecologic malignancies. The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is frequently activated, leading to increased cell survival. This study aimed to identify secreted proteins regulated by the PI3K pathway in ovarian cancer cell lines. Surface-enhanced laser desorption-ionization time-of-fli...
