Objective: The association between computed tomography (CT) and clinical severity of COVID-19 has been demonstrated. However, there are few studies on CT and laboratory indicators in patients in COVID-19. Our aim was to explore the correlation between chest CT images and laboratory indicators of patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. Read More

Tumour revascularization and the consequent radioresistance activated by the up-regulated angiogenic pathway after radiation exposure remain a major bottleneck for improving the tumouricidal effect of radiotherapy (RT) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Herein, we show that fabricated aminopeptidase N (ANP/CD13)-targeting Gd-hybridized gold nanomolecules (tGd-GNMs) can efficaciously suppress tumour revascularization and the consequent radioresistance, and then synergize in augmenting the RT response. Both and experiments demonstrate that the targeted delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) siRNA into the tumour site and the generation of an abundance of intratumourally cytotoxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) under X-ray radiation by the tGd-GNMs complex has the capability to down-regulate VEGF gene expression and strengthen the radiation response.

Background: Head trauma patients may have concomitant facial fractures, which are usually underdetected by head computed tomography alone. This study aimed to identify the clinical indicators of facial fractures and to develop a risk-prediction model to guide the discriminative use of additional facial computed tomography in head trauma.Methods: The authors retrospectively reviewed head trauma patients undergoing simultaneous head and facial computed tomography at a Level II trauma center from 2015 to 2018.

Isolated occipital condyle lesions are commonly treated with empirical radiation, with the sole aim of relieving symptoms. Patients rarely undergo surgical biopsy, considering the morbidity associated with open surgery approaches and the importance of surrounding structures limiting the application of computed tomography (CT) scan or fluoroscopic percutaneous needle biopsies. We describe the case of a 66-year-old woman who was admitted on an emergency basis. Read More

Background: Virtual monoenergetic (VM) dual-energy computed tomography (DE-CT) enables grey-to-white matter contrast-to-noise ratio optimization, potentially increasing ischaemic brain oedema visibility. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of VM and standard DE-CT reconstructions for early stroke detection.Methods: Consecutive patients with non-contrast DE-CT of the brain scanned within 12 h of stroke symptom onset were prospectively included in the study.
