Neurological events contribute to mortality risk in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI); Alexandra Lansky and colleagues argue that diffusion-weighted MRI should be used to detect neurological lesions and measure TAVI success.
Longitudinal phacoemulsification with the INFINITI machine generates less heat than with the Signature and the Stellaris machines, potentially providing additional thermal protection during cataract surgery.
A new side-view imaging technique is presented for observing the dynamic behaviour of posterior chamber structures in porcine eyes, mimicking closed-eye cataract surgery in humans.
Experiments in an animal system indicate that there is low risk for neurotoxicity associated with the use of ultrasound gels containing propylene glycol and glycerol, despite the fact that these compounds are neurotoxic in high concentrations.
Ossenkoppele and colleagues comment on the possibilities of amyloid imaging in clinical trials with disease-modifying agents, methodological considerations for reliable longitudinal amyloid imaging and alternative quantitative approaches.
