To assess the relationships of subsolid nodules (SSNs) with peripheral vessels and aerated bronchi using computed tomography (CT), and to correlate the imaging features with the benign/malignant pathological diagnoses.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Clinical imaging
The long-term natural course and outcomes of subsolid nodules (SSNs) in terms of true growth, substantial growth, and stage shift need to be clarified.
We investigated whether the diagnostic performance of machine learning-based radiomics models for the discrimination of invasive pulmonary adenocarcinomas (IPAs) among subsolid nodules (SSNs) was affe...
To assess national and regional practice patterns and rates of pathologic specimen identification sent at time of pyeloplasty, as well as project associated costs, we used a national administrative da...
A novel CAD scheme for automated lung nodule detection is proposed to assist radiologists with the detection of lung cancer on CT scans. The proposed scheme is composed of four major steps: (1) lung v...
The study is designed as a multi-center prospective trial with two arms, ENB-EBUS-GS group and EBUS-GS group, and aimed to evaluate the diagnostic yield and operation time between the two ...
The study is designed as a multi-center prospective trial of ENB for the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary nodules in the real world. The purpose of the study is to identify the optimal co...
This study evaluates the use of the Human Acellular Vessel (HAV) in adults with arterial trauma in the lower limb who are undergoing vascular reconstructive surgery. All subjects will be i...
This study compares the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of radiologists, thoracic surgeons and a predictive model (PKUM model) to discriminate malignancy from benign nodules in patie...
A need exists for non-invasive testing to aid in clinical decision-making for CT scan detected lung nodules of indeterminate etiology. The investigators hypothesize that biomarkers detect...
An experimental animal model for the demyelinating disease of GUILLAINE-BARRE SYNDROME. In the most frequently used protocol, animals are injected with a peripheral nerve tissue protein homogenate. After approximately 2 weeks the animals develop a neuropathy secondary to a T cell-mediated autoimmune response directed towards the MYELIN P2 PROTEIN in peripheral nerves. Pathologic findings include a perivascular accumulation of macrophages and T lymphocytes in the peripheral nervous system, similar to that seen in the Guillaine-Barre syndrome.

Unique slender cells with multiple processes extending along the capillary vessel axis and encircling the vascular wall, also called mural cells. Pericytes are imbedded in the BASEMENT MEMBRANE shared with the ENDOTHELIAL CELLS of the vessel. Pericytes are important in maintaining vessel integrity, angiogenesis, and vascular remodeling.
The middle coat of blood vessel walls, composed principally of thin, cylindrical, smooth muscle cells and elastic tissue. It accounts for the bulk of the wall of most arteries. The smooth muscle cells are arranged in circular layers around the vessel, and the thickness of the coat varies with the size of the vessel.
An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes. Pathologic features include reduced numbers of small diameter peripheral nerve fibers and autonomic ganglion neurons.

A nonspecific term referring both to the pathologic finding of swelling of distal portions of axons in the brain and to disorders which feature this finding. Neuroaxonal dystrophy is seen in various genetic diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and aging. Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by arrested psychomotor development at 6 months to 2 years of age, ataxia, brain stem dysfunction, and quadriparesis. Juvenile and adult forms also occur. Pathologic findings include brain atrophy and widespread accumulation of axonal spheroids throughout the neuroaxis, peripheral nerves, and dental pulp.

Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
