The Use of Radiation Attenuating Gloves Reduces Exposure to Scatter Radiation but not Direct Radiation

Jas Virk, MD, Muhammad Nadeem, MBBS and Charles Chung MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 23, 2022

Diagnostic and interventional procedures are commonly performed under fluoroscopic guidance. The use of radiation attenuating gloves to reduce direct and scatter radiation to the hands of clinicians has been controversial. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of radiation attenuating gloves reduce direct and/or scatter radiation dose to the hands of the operator....

Predicting Age Groups using Brain Imaging Quality Data

Kadir Uludag, MS

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 18, 2022

Brain imaging quality of data is important to confirm their liability of brain imaging studies. Previous literature confirmed that some confounding factors such as movement, age, and gender may impact brain imaging quality. Automatic quality control (QC) applications may not be able to properly calculate their reliability due to confounding factors....

Is There a Relationship between Serum D-Dimer Levels and Thorax CT Severity Score in Patients with COVID-19?: A Retrospective Analysis

Belma Cevik, MD and Kayıhan Akın, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 15, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic began in Wuhan (Hubei, China) in December 2019 and rapidly spread around the World. Because of RT-PCR sensitivity limitations, the radiology literature has focused on detecting the probability of infection of non-contrast CT findings. However the elevated serum D-dimer levels and its relationship with poor outcomes in COVID-19 pneumonia patients have been demonstrated. D-dimer is known as a biomarker of inflammation. Therefore, we considered that serum D-dimer levels may pr...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 08, 2022

The purpose of this investigation was to find the anxiety levels, physical data and subjective perception and explore the relationship between demographic, clinical and cancer patients’ variables, pre and post-procedure during a positron emission tomography/computed tomography PETCT scan. The sample was distributed in two groups (experimental and control group), 54 subjects in each group, with clinical indication for performing an 18F-2- fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose [18F]FDG-PET/CT scan. The study...
