Before x-rays were used for medical purposes, they were used for entertainment. X-rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum and are utilized in a variety of radiography procedures that are currently taught to aspiring veterinary students. Liane Shaw, Diagnostic Imaging Senior Instructional Veterinary Nurse at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, describes the use of x-rays within these procedures and gives us a crash course in the history and properties of x-ray waves.
Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Rick Carr, Development Director with Confidential Care Mobile Ministry, who highlights the Christ-centered nonprofit organization helping mothers and families in crisis and who are experiencing unplanned pregnancies. During the interview, Rick discusses their three biblically-based outreach programs, their Mid-South Women's Clinic, Telecare Health, and Continuum of Care. Mid-South Women's Clinic is the name of their Medical Mobile Units, where every day of every workweek and sometimes on the weekend, they send out two medical mobile units covering Tipton and Shelby Counties. The units are overseen by a two-person medical ministry team, an RN and Patient Client Advocate. On the unit, they provide accessible and free health care for women with limited transportation and resources who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. This includes testing, Ultrasounds, education, ministry, support and resources with a focus on saving the preborn baby's life. He talks about their Telecare Health and the collaborative statewide program tied to Governor Lee's initiative, and their Continuum of Care, which provides hands-on resources and guidance both practically and spiritually in an effort to realize the birth of a healthy child, help the mother (and father if possible) realize the resources and support needed to redirect their lives toward positive and sustainable outcomes, and to plug them into long-term loving support and discipleship through biblically based local churches.Visit www.confidentialcaremm.org to learn more.
In this next installment of our Back to the Basics series, Drs. Aaron Fritts and Chris Beck discuss their techniques, considerations, and tips for ensuring safe and high quality renal biopsies. The CE experience for this Podcast is powered by CMEfy - click here to reflect and earn credits: https://earnc.me/bYgmZk --- CHECK OUT OUR SPONSORS Laurel Road for Doctors https://www.laurelroad.com/healthcare-banking/ RADPAD® Radiation Protection https://www.radpad.com/ --- SHOW NOTES First, the doctors discuss indications and contraindications for biopsy. In the outpatient setting, the doctors have noticed that proteinuria is the most common reason for referral, followed by lupus nephritis. For inpatients, acute unexplained kidney failure is an additional indication. It is important to talk with nephrologists to weigh the risks and benefits of renal biopsy, especially if the patient has a coagulopathy, is experiencing uncontrolled hypertension, or is too unstable to lay prone on the table. The SIR Guidelines app is a useful tool to risk stratify patients. In terms of imaging, CT or ultrasound can be used, although they each have unique advantages. Ultrasound allows for real-time guidance and the ability to use the probe to hold pressure on the kidney to prevent bleeding. On the other hand, CT allows for better imaging in patients with larger body habitus and allows the patients to lay prone. Dr. Fritts emphasizes that the best imaging modality is the one that the operator is most comfortable with, since this will ensure maximal safety for the patient. One helpful tip when planning a biopsy is to avoid needle entry into the paraspinal muscles, since this could change the trajectory of the needle and cause pain. Both doctors prefer to use moderate sedation if the patient can tolerate it. This sedation usually has the added benefit of facilitating an intra-procedural blood pressure dip, which protects against bleeding when biopsying hypertensive patients. Since sedation can alter breathing patterns, starting sedation early (before scanning the patient) can be helpful in establishing a steady breathing pattern before the procedure starts. Dr. Beck also recommends checking blood pressure while the patient is in pre-operative care, in order to predict whether or not they might require additional intra-procedural antihypertensive medications such as hydralazine, labetalol, or clonidine. Since blood pressure control is a cornerstone of a safe procedure, each doctor has their own safety threshold for blood pressure. Then, the doctors discuss different types and sizes of biopsy needles. While a 16G needle can obtain better diagnostic samples, the 18G needle might have a lower risk of bleeding complications. The doctors also share their preferred brands of needles. The episode concludes with tips for surveilling patients in the post-procedural period and dealing with bleeding complications. Dr. Beck describes his protocol for re-scanning patients to check for large hematomas and keeping them under observation for at least three hours. If there is a large hematoma, emergency embolization must be performed. --- RESOURCES SIR Guidelines App: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/sir-guidelines/id1552455529 SIR Consensus Guidelines for the Periprocedural Management of Thrombotic and Bleeding Risk in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Image-Guided Interventions: https://www.jvir.org/article/S1051-0443(19)30407-5/fulltext 18G BioPince Biopsy Needle: https://www.argonmedical.com/products/biopince-full-core-biopsy-instrument Bard Mission Biopsy Needle: https://www.bd.com/en-us/products-and-solutions/products/product-families/mission-disposable-core-biopsy-instrument Temno Biopsy Needle: https://www.merit.com/peripheral-intervention/biopsy/soft-tissue-biopsy/temno-evolution-biopsy-device/

Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is a costly concern primarily during the calf phase production. This is especially relevant to veal production, when young and venerable calves are commingled from many farms. However, BVD breakouts can also occur on calf ranches raising dairy x beef calves or even individual dairy farms. This month Dr. Stan Jourquin joins us from Ghent University in Belgium to discuss his article is titled, “Dynamics of subclinical pneumonia in male dairy calves in relation to antimicrobial therapy and production outcomes”. Listen in to learn how pneumonia might be lurking in your herd without your knowledge. Consider ways to use ultrasound as a tool to quickly and reliability assess animals upon receipt to allow for differential management. Overall losses, from chronically ill animals, could be decreased by warding off the spread of infection and promoting early cure. Once lungs are severely consolidated, these animals are 4.2x more likely to become chronic and experience -0.25 lbs average daily gain over this phase of production.

Every time a runner calls me who has a plantar plate sprain, they're trying to figure out how they can know for sure they actually do have a plantar plate sprain. They often also want to know how bad the plantar plate injury really is. When you're a runner, the problem with plantar plate sprains is that many doctors will offer a standardized cookie cutter approach. I most often help runners get better without surgery. That's not because I'm a better doctor. It is because I really put a lot of attention into educating injured runners about how to do all of the additional things to get the injury to heal quickly...so that they can skip the surgery. One way to start healing faster is by imaging the plantar plate to determine the extent of tissue injury. Plantar plate imaging, MRI vs. Ultrasound. That's what we're talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.

Endometriosis is often a painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus. "Endometriosis is a very common condition," explains Dr. Tatnai Burnett, a gynecologic surgeon at Mayo Clinic. "Most of our studies, which are looking at women who have symptoms, would suggest that about 1 in 10 women, so 10% or so have endometriosis. Now, the difficulty here is that some women do not have significant symptoms and wouldn't go to a doctor, or they minimize their symptoms or think what they are experiencing is normal. So, if anything, that estimate is probably on the low side of what actual reality is."With endometriosis, the endometrial-like tissue acts as endometrial tissue would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. But because this tissue has no way to exit the body, it becomes trapped. Endometriosis can cause pain, which is sometimes severe, especially during menstrual periods. Fortunately, effective treatments are available. Imaging, including ultrasound and MRI, is an important step in evaluating patients with endometriosis and can impact treatment options and surgical planning. "Ultrasound is a great way to start the evaluation of the female pelvis because it's easily accessible," says Dr. Wendaline VanBuren, a Mayo Clinic radiologist who specializes in gynecologic imaging. "And it gives us a lot of information about the ovaries and the uterus. The problem with endometriosis is that, while it can involve the ovaries, it can involve all these sites on the surface of the uterus, the bowel, the ureters and all the structures around it. So, MRI gives us a little bit more of a global perspective of the pelvis. So that's the advantage of using MRI." To better coordinate care for patients with endometriosis, Drs. Burnett and VanBuren instituted an MRI-based interdisciplinary conference at Mayo Clinic that brings together radiology and gynecology."For endometriosis, we realized that a multidisciplinary approach where we review things together was just in the best interest of the patient because it gives us the best coordination of care between the radiologist and the gynecologist," says Dr. Burnett. "It gives us a nuanced interpretation of what the imaging means for the patient. And then it allows us to apply what we see in the imaging to our surgical plan and to the surgical team. We use all the information that we gather to really make the best plan for the patient in regard to the patient's goals and what they need."The team at Mayo Clinic has been sharing the success of this collaborative model and educating other experts through the publication of their research findings and participation in a disease-focused endometriosis panel through the Society for Abdominal Radiology."We all have our own expertise," says Dr. VanBuren. "And when we're able to collaborate and share, hearing the clinical stories, looking at the imaging, putting it together, the considerations for management, whether that be medical or surgical planning, we're really able to make a huge impact. It's exciting to see now collaborations between societies, from gynecology and radiology together."On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Drs. Burnett and VanBuren discuss the multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating endometriosis.

The mint of a project called XEN Crypto and its token (XEN) attracted the participation of more than 364,114 wallet addresses and triggered a surge in Ethereum network gas fees for 2 consecutive days, reaching 200wei at one point on October 9. According to Ultrasound data, the ETH burned during the minting process reached 2,271 on October 10, accounting for 19.46% of the total burning of the Ethereum network on October 7. The Ethereum network has entered its most extended period of token deflation since “the Merge.” However, even with this the price of Ethereum continues to remain unmoved... why?~This episode is sponsored by iTrust Capital~iTrustCapital | Get $100 Funding Reward + No Monthly Fees when you sign up using our custom link! ➜ https://bit.ly/iTrustPaul

Dr. Mathew Leonardi is an advanced gynecological surgeon and sonologist (ultrasound specialist) at McMaster University Medical Centre in Hamilton, Canada. He is an expert in endometriosis excision surgery and gynecological ultrasound, and his focus is on using ultrasound in the diagnosis and surgical management of endometriosis. In this episode, we talk about how Dr. Leonardi became interested in endometriosis research and patient care, the patient-led endometriosis revolution, theories on the causes of endometriosis, why endometriosis is often left undiagnosed, Dr. Leonardi's unique approach to diagnosis and treatment, gaps in the standard care model for endometriosis, and so much more. Dr. Leonardi has taken a lot of heat for his stance, which goes against the traditional idea that we can only diagnose endometriosis via laparoscopic surgery. He's an absolute wealth of knowledge on all things endo, and I can't wait for you to hear what he has to say!

It's Tuesday, September 27th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Kevin Swanson Hong Kong pastor on trial for Tiananmen Sq. massacre remembrance Pray for Hong Kong Pastor Garry Pang Moon-yuen who is on trial for attending an event commemorating the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre on June 4th, reports MyChristianDaily.com. He's also been praying for the revival and religious freedom of Hong Kong and doing sit-ins with parents whose college-age children were trapped during the siege of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Iranians protest over Morality Police killing woman over hijab With increased authoritarianism among governments, Iranian citizens have taken to the streets to protest. At issue is the killing of a Kurdish woman, who was beaten to death by the Morality Police for improper use of a hijab, a clothing government that covers the hair. Over 40 people have been killed in the protests that ensued. Freedom House reports a growing autocracy throughout the world. Over the last year, the think tank concluded that a total of 60 countries suffered declines in political rights and civil liberties over the past year, while only 25 improved. The worst countries on the list include China, Russia, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Mali, and Hong Kong. The world has witnessed a 16-year-long, loss-of-freedom run, according to Freedom House. Pro-lifer, father of 7, arrested by 15 FBI agents The U.S. government is busy making arrests. This time, a Catholic pro-life family's home was raided by 15-20 FBI agents on Friday. Mark Houck, a father of seven children, was arrested on charges of violating the Freedom of Access to [Abortion] Clinic Entrances Act. Mark's wife said, “They had about five guns pointed at my husband, myself, and basically at my kids,” reports LifeSiteNews.com. Mark would drive “two hours every Wednesday to speak outside of abortion clinics for six to eight hours at a time and at times would bring their 12-year-old son.” The GiveSendGo website noted that “Mark's ‘crime' was protecting his son from an aggressive Planned Parenthood escort in downtown Philadelphia.” Conservative woman becomes Italy's new prime minister Once more, “The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He will.” (Proverbs 21:1) Now, Italian politics is moving conservative with the Brothers of Italy Party, gaining 26% of the vote in the recent national elections. Giorgia Meloni won the election as the first female Prime Minister for the country, reports the BBC. Meloni wants more secured borders and has announced her opposition to the LHBT and Gender Identity ideology. She opposes big international finance and the bureaucrats of Brussels (a reference to the European Union). The BBC called it the most right-wing government for Italy since World War 2. Ms. Meloni will be the 16th female head of state out of 45 European countries, a list that includes the UK, Scotland, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, and Sweden. That's the largest number of women leading countries in European history. The domino effect of European food shortage Turmoil in Europe is producing a food shortage worldwide. Between 2018 and 2020, Russia provided 32 percent of African wheat imports while Ukraine contributed 12 percent. World Magazine reports that 70% of Somalia's grain comes from Ukraine. Consequently, more than 800,000 Somalians have been displaced due to hunger and drought conditions. Plus, hundreds have already died of starvation. Keep in mind worst case conditions for hunger have hit Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, Haiti, Honduras, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the countries in the Horn of Africa. In Amos 8:11, the Sovereign LORD declared, “The days are coming when I will send a famine through the land—not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD'”. Americans concerned about economy and crime ahead of abortion As we approach the 2022 elections Americans are more interested in the economy and crime than abortion. Whether pro-abortion or pro-life, the issue of abortion takes second fiddle in the American mind, according to an ABC/WaPo poll released Sunday. Americans are most concerned about the economy (89%), education (77%), and inflation (76%). Only 62% are concerned about the abortion issue. Immigration and climate change were of least importance (standing at 61% and 50% respectively). But Americans still lean pro-abortion when it comes to public policy in recent polls. The ABC poll found the “public trusts the Democratic Party over the Republican Party to handle abortion by a wide 20 points.” A Pew Research poll found 61% of Americans wanted abortion legal in all or most cases. And a Gallup poll found 67% of Americans want abortion legalized in the first trimester — the highest number recorded in 25 years of polling. NBC's story on 3D Ultrasounds and reference to “baby” in womb And finally, the NBC Today show did an extensive piece on 3D ultrasounds featuring videos of children in the womb who appear to be reacting to bitter or sweet flavors consumed by their mothers. Interestingly, the coverage referred to the children as “babies,” not “fetal tissue.” NBC REPORTER: “So, you guys have to see this! Have you heard about this? So, this morning, we wanted to show you some amazing baby faces. “Look at this. Researchers in Britain wanted to know if babies in the womb react when the mom ingests a flavor of food. And this is what they saw. “So, the left is of a baby and its resting state. And then on the right, you see he smiles, 20 minutes. The mom ate some carrots. AL ROKER: “So, were there other foods?” REPORTER: “Yes, there were other foods. I'm glad you asked. You want to look at this baby's reaction? Mom had kale.” ROKER: “Wow!” REPORTER: “So here's the thing. Let's say he's co-author says the images could just show muscle movements when a baby's reacting to maybe a flavor that's bitter.” The Worldview wonders, “Do any of these reporters, who marveled at the humanity of the babies in the womb, advocate abortion?” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Tuesday, September 27th, in the year of our Lord 2022.

Economists are watching whether the stocks and crypto will break the barrier set in June given the aggressive hawkish behavior of the Fed raising interest rates like it's going out of style.
Georgia Democrat candidate for Governor Stacy Abrams claimed ultrasound technology was developed to allow men to control women's bodies. She told a panel discussion, "There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman's body." Washington Post "fact checker" Glenn Kessler sprang to action... to defend Abrams. FWIW, "fetal heartbeat" is a misnomer. The ultrasound picks up electrical activity generated by an embryo. The so-called "heartbeat" sound you hear is created by the ultrasound. Not until 10 weeks can the opening and closing of cardiac valves be detected by a Doppler machine. Which prompted a response from an actual doctor: Radiologist Pradheep J. Shanker quickly pointed out that Kessler has no idea what he is talking about: "Glenn… This is scientifically and medically incorrect. 100%. Ultrasound can't detect electrical activity. Who told you otherwise?" He said the NPR article Kessler cited was wrong. “Ultrasound only detects density and motion. It cannot detect any electrical activity at all. This is a scientific fact,” Shanker declared. “It is true that the valves in the heart develop later. However, the cardiac muscles that are located in the embryological heart are contracting. They are in fact moving inward and outward. That is how you define a beat.” He conceded that a fetal heartbeat isn't the same as a fully developed adult heartbeat but added, “the cardiac tissue is contracting, which is literally what a beat is. To say otherwise is scientific misinformation, and cannot be treated otherwise.” Much like the former candidate for Senate in Missouri lost his race after making comments about "legitimate rape" not leading to pregnancy, Abrams probably had made these comments to political allies. And she probably never had pushback from those folks. Unchallenged ideas are easy to hold.

With the recent reversal of Roe, the pro-life movement has gained new momentum. Ultrasound technology, science and the Bible agree: life begins at conception. This is not stopping states like California from attempting to become “sanctuary” states for abortion as the fight for life heats up. So what is the future of the pro-life movement? How important is it that we engage in the conversation to defend our unborn? Today I'm joined by pro-life influencer Christine Yeargin for a thought-provoking conversation that starts with a wonderful fact: we are winning the argument for life.
