Development of a Deep Learning Algorithm for Periapical Disease Detection in Dental Radiographs.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2020 Jun 24;10(6). Epub 2020 Jun 24.

Laboratory for Innovation Science, Harvard University, 175 N. Harvard Street, Suite 1350, Boston, MA 02134, USA.

Periapical radiolucencies, which can be detected on panoramic radiographs, are one of the most common radiographic findings in dentistry and have a differential diagnosis including infections, granuloma, cysts and tumors. In this study, we seek to investigate the ability with which 24 oral and maxillofacial (OMF) surgeons assess the presence of periapical lucencies on panoramic radiographs, and we compare these findings to the performance of a predictive deep learning algorithm that we have developed using a curated data set of 2902 de-identified panoramic radiographs. The mean diagnostic positive predictive value (PPV) of OMF surgeons based on their assessment of panoramic radiographic images was 0. Read More

YAP1-NUTM1 Gene Fusion in Porocarcinoma of the External Auditory Canal.

Head Neck Pathol 2020 May 20. Epub 2020 May 20.

Institute of Pathology and Molecular Diagnostics, University Hospital, Augsburg, Germany.

Gene fusions involving the NUTM1 gene (NUT) represent defining genetic markers of a highly aggressive carcinoma type with predilection for the midline structures of children and young adults, hence the original description as NUT midline carcinoma. Recent studies have increasingly documented involvement of the NUTM1 gene in the pathogenesis of other entities as well. We herein describe two cases of auditory canal carcinomas with features of porocarcinoma, both harboring a newly described YAP1-NUTM1 gene fusion. Read More

High-Resolution Laryngeal US: Imaging Technique, Normal Anatomy, and Spectrum of Disease.

Radiographics 2020 May-Jun;40(3):775-790

From the Department of Imaging, University College London Hospitals, London, England (T.B., S.M.); Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, 330 Gray's Inn Road, Kings Cross, London WC1X 8DA, England (V.M.T.); and Serviço de Radiologia, Instituto Português de Oncologia de Lisboa Francisco Gentil, Lisbon, Portugal (M.H.).

Although US is one of the most used modalities for head and neck imaging, its use in the diagnosis of laryngeal abnormalities is much less widespread. The standard assessment of laryngeal abnormalities currently involves direct laryngoscopy and cross-sectional imaging (either CT or MRI) but rarely US. US is readily available, noninvasive, and radiation free, and it allows real-time imaging (with video for dynamic assessment), higher resolution than that of cross-sectional imaging, and the performance of targeted fine needle aspiration cytology or biopsy.

Division of Thoracic Imaging, Department of Radiology, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 300 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 20115, USA. Electronic address:

Congenital entities sharing imaging characteristics with true pathologies occasionally are discovered incidentally in adults. These may occur in the neck, chest, abdomen/pelvis, or musculoskeletal systems. Although these incidental findings share imaging features with true pathologic processes, up-to-date knowledge and assessment with the most appropriate imaging modalities generally allow a distinction between congenital entities that may be safely dismissed and pathologic processes requiring further assessment and treatment.

Endoscopic Endonasal Resection of Meckel's Cave Epidermoid Cysts: Case Discussion and Literature Review.

Case Rep Neurol Med 2020 7;2020:7853279. Epub 2020 Feb 7.

Department of Neurological Surgery, Stritch School of Medicine, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL, USA.

Meckel's cave (MC) epidermoid cysts are relatively uncommon lesions. In cases where surgical excision is indicated, resection is often carried out via a frontosphenotemporal craniotomy from an anterolateral approach or a temporal craniotomy with or without a petrosectomy for a lateral corridor; both of these routes are associated with brain retraction and potential neurovascular injury. The anterior location of MC in the middle cranial fossa makes safe access via posterior fossa-based approaches-such as the retrosigmoid approach-challenging as well. Read More
