Background: Mental health and cognitive achievement are partly heritable, highly polygenic, and associated with brain variations in structure and function. However, the underlying neural mechanisms remains unclear.Methods: We investigated the association between genetic predispositions to various mental health and cognitive traits and a large set of structural and functional brain measures from the UK Biobank (N=36,799).

Background Context: Cage subsidence following transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) has been associated with poor bone quality. Current evidence suggests that the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based vertebral bone quality (VBQ) score correlates with poor bone quality.Purpose: To our knowledge, this is the first study to assess whether the VBQ score can predict the occurrence of postoperative cage subsidence after TLIF surgery.

Background: Although muscle weakness and/or imbalance of the rotator cuff are thought to contribute to the development of shoulder instability, the association between muscular dysfunction and shoulder instability is not completely understood. The purpose of this study was to evaluate rotator cuff and deltoid muscle cross-sectional areas in different types of shoulder instability (anterior, posterior, and multidirectional instability (MDI)) and to determine the associations between muscular imbalance and shoulder instability direction.Methods: Preoperative magnetic resonance images of patients with shoulder instability who subsequently underwent arthroscopic glenohumeral labral repair or capsular plication were evaluated.

Abstract: 68Ga-labeled PET tracer targeting PSMA is a promising diagnostic approach for staging and restating of prostate cancer (PCa), but cases with clinically relevant PCa and false-negative PSMA PET/CT have been reported. In this case, we reported 68Ga-PSMA, 18F-FDG, and 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT findings in a 65-year-old man with de novo metastatic PCa. 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT detected non-PSMA/FDG-avid primary PCa, consisting with multiparametric MRI findings.
