The importance of 18F-FDG cardiac PET/CT for the assessment of myocardial viability in ischaemic heart disease
18F-FDG cardiac PET/CT is expected to streamline resource allocation in view of the possibility to avoid costly, invasive procedures and to reduce the rate of future severe complications in coronary artery disease patients, thus further reducing the costs for advanced therapies.
Participants with bone marrow oedema of the knee showed a significant pain reduction after an administration of ibandronate, independently of the severity showed in MRI.
Ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia and reduction of distal radius fractures in an emergency department
The combination of ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia and ultrasound-guided reduction of distal radius fractures is feasible. Effectiveness regarding the necessity of subsequent operation was comparable to usual care.
The authors describe the first clinical experiences with 55 COVID-19 patients in Central Switzerland. They provide an illustrative and schematic description of typical COVID-19 imaging features and suggest that imaging plays an important role in the clinical work-up of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients.
Interventional radiology workflow during the COVID-19 pandemic: recommendations of the Swiss Society of Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Given the importance of continuum in providing services and exigence of protecting health care professionals during this period, the Swiss Society of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (SSVIR) is releasing guidance for interventional radiologists as preparedness to manage COVID-19 patients, the workflow of non-COVID-19 patients and optimize interactions with other healthcare professionals.
Imaging patterns of Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia in HIV-positive and renal transplant patients – a multicentre study
Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) may present with a very variable pattern of clinical and radiological manifestations, depending on the immunological status of the patient.
Systematic use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in MINOCA led to a five-fold increase in the detection rate of myocarditis: a retrospective study
In a previous pilot study, the authors showed that systematic work-up of patients with myocardial infarction and non-obstructive coronary artery disease (MINOCA) using CMR led to a more than six-fold increase in the detection rate of myocarditis.
Considerable progress has been made over the last decades in the diagnosis of NET with new tracers. In addition, the successful administration of these molecules with radioisotopes, which have positron emitting properties, has been extensively and successfully explored.
Clinical presentation of 54 patients with endogenous hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia: a neurological chameleon (observational study)
Important causes of endogenous hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia (EHH) in adult patients are insulinoma and adult nesidioblastosis. Data on main symptoms in EHH are scarce and controversial.
The manifestations of giant cell arteritis can be variable. About a third of large-vessel giant cell arteritis patients have no sonographic evidence of temporal vasculitis, and more than half have normal histology of the temporal artery.
