- Role of µ-Opioid Receptor Polymorphism in Patients of Rheumatoid Arthritis and their Correlation with Severity of Disease. [Journal Article]
- JAJ Assoc Physicians India 2019; 67(4):22-25
- CONCLUSIONS: The study definitely needs to be extended to larger cohort of patients and control samples and to a larger set of candidate µ opioid receptors. Extending the studies to a larger cohort will also allow genetic analyses of clinically defined endophenotypes observed in the patients of this chronic metabolic disease with attributes of autoimmune disorder and multiple symptoms in patients.
- Anatomical variation of piriformis muscle as a cause of deep gluteal pain: diagnosis using MR neurography and treatment. [Review]

Female patient, 42 years old with a history of low back pain on the left for seventeen years in which the definitive diagnosis of the etiology of pain was evident after the completion of neurography magnetic resonance imaging of the sciatic nerve. In this test it was identified the presence of an anatomical variation in the relationship between the piriformis muscle and sciatic nerve. We discuss details of this imaging technique and its importance in the frames of refractory low back pain. We also describe the treatment given to the case.
- Bias in Radiology Resident Selection: Do We Discriminate Against the Obese and Unattractive? [Journal Article]
- AMAcad Med 2019 May 28
- CONCLUSIONS: Findings provide preliminary evidence of discrimination against facially unattractive and obese applicants in radiology resident selection. Obesity and attractiveness were as influential in applicant selection for interview as traditional medical school performance metrics. Selection committees should invoke strategies to detect and manage appearance-based bias.
- Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System in Patients at High Risk for Hepatocellular Carcinoma in the Memphis Veterans Affairs Population. [Journal Article]
- FPFed Pract 2019; 36(Suppl 3):S47-S52
- Although hepatocellular carcinoma can be difficult to detect, use of the LI-RADS algorithm could lead to earlier identification in at-risk patients.
Although hepatocellular carcinoma can be difficult to detect, use of the LI-RADS algorithm could lead to earlier identification in at-risk patients.
- Reducing inter-observer variability and interaction time of MR liver volumetry by combining automatic CNN-based liver segmentation and manual corrections. [Journal Article]
- PlosPLoS One 2019; 14(5):e0217228
- CONCLUSIONS: The quality of automatic liver segmentations is on par with those from manual routines. Using automatic liver masks in the clinical workflow could lead to a reduction of segmentation time and a more consistent liver volume estimation across different observers.
- Surface-based shared and distinct resting functional connectivity in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder. [Journal Article]
- BJBr J Psychiatry 2019; 214(6):339-344
- CONCLUSIONS: Our results may shed new light on the underlying mechanisms of ASD and ADHD and facilitate the development of new diagnostic methods for these disorders.Declaration of interestJ.K. holds equity in a startup company, MNT.
- Free-breathing 3-D quantification of infant body composition and hepatic fat using a stack-of-radial magnetic resonance imaging technique. [Journal Article]
- PRPediatr Radiol 2019; 49(7):876-888
- CONCLUSIONS: In this study, free-breathing radial MRI in infants achieved significantly improved liver image quality compared to Cartesian MRI. It is feasible to use free-breathing radial MRI to quantify body composition and hepatic fat in infants.
- Tapered Versus Cylindrical Implant: Which Shape Inflicts Less Pain After Dental Implant Surgery? A Clinical Trial. [Journal Article]
- JOJ Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019; 77(7):1381-1388
- CONCLUSIONS: Implant shape had an impact on postoperative pain. It can be concluded that tapered implants lead to less postoperative pain compared with cylindrical ones.
- Manipulation Under Anesthesia in Infants With Arthrogenic Newborn Torticollis: A Retrospective Case Series. [Case Reports]
- JCJ Chiropr Med 2018; 17(4):289-297
- CONCLUSIONS: These 6 infants with arthrogenic newborn torticollis, who did not respond to previous conservative treatment methods, responded to MUA.

New radiology and other residents must quickly assimilate a vast amount of anatomic and pathologic information when learning to interpret noncontrast head computed tomography (CT). No interactive, computer-based module using a search-pattern approach to provide new residents with the groundwork for interpretation of noncontrast head CT previously existed.
