Multimodal imaging is a powerful tool for visualizing the abnormal state at the target site of the related disease. This study presents a multimodal approach that includes Fluorescence, Computed tomog...
Meniscal surgery is commonplace. Patients who have had prior surgery may return for additional imaging for continued or new pain, limited range of motion, or interval injury. Accurate interpretation o...
Opioids have been the mainstay for postoperative pain relief for many decades. Recently, opioid-related adverse events and death have been linked to postoperative dependency. Multimodal approaches to ...
Nonneovascular (dry) AMD is a retinal disease with potential for significant central visual impairment. The hallmarks of this disease are macular drusen, RPE alterations, and geographic atrophy (GA). ...
The management of postoperative pain and recovery is still unsatisfactory in a number of cases in clinical practice. Opioids used for postoperative analgesia are frequently associated with adverse eff...
Aim of the study is to evaluate, whether the self administered quality of recovery (QoR-9) questionnaire can predict postoperative complications after non-cardiac surgery and whether preop...
FRench Acute cerebral multimodal imaging to select patient for MEchanical thrombectomy is a prospective multi-center study to determine if multimodal imaging could identify patients who ma...
Patients undergoing abdominal procedures often require multimodal postoperative pain controls. Truncal blocks such as quadratus lumborum (QL) block may be used adjunctively as a part of it...
The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to determine whether, "ICE-T," a novel multimodal postoperative pain regimen composed of around the clock ice packs, toradol, and tylenol...
Perioperative pain is caused by a variety of harmful factors through multiple mechanisms, therefore, reasonable postoperative analgesia should be combined with drugs or measures of differe...
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
