Prevalence of radiosensitive organ shielding in patients undergoing computed tomography examinations: an observational service audit in Ahvaz, Iran

the availabilities and usage of modern shielding tools (IBS) and CRS for patients undergoing CT exams in five hospitals in Ahvaz, Iran. Materials and methods We conducted an observational cross-sectional study as an audit or service evaluation in five hospitals in Ahvaz, Iran including three teaching and two general hospitals, during August 2014 to September 2014. Ahvaz is a regional provincial capital in the south-west of Iran. Six radiology technologist students agreed to participate in this audit. After preliminary coordination and training, the students

A novel c.973G>T mutation in the ε-subunit of the acetylcholine receptor causing congenital myasthenic syndrome in an iranian family

results with the reference wild-type sequence (GenBank CHRNE accession numbers: NM_000080.3) using the Finch TV program (version 1.4.0; Geospiza Inc., Seattle, WA, USA). Bioinformatics Analysis . To predict the possible structural and functional effects of the newly identified mutation in the CHRNE gene, the PolyPhen (Polymorphism phenotyping-2) [ 5 ], MutationTaster [ 6 ] and SIFT (Sorting Intolerant from Tolerant) [ 7 ] programs were used. These are the most frequently used tools for variant effect prediction. In order to classify the mutation, we used the 2015

A systematic clinical review of prenatally diagnosed tetrasomy 9p

]. The objective of this review was to highlight the importance of early fetal ultrasound screening in identifying rare chromosomal abnormalities and to present the array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) as a valuable clinical diagnostic tool that allows rapid and precise identification of chromosomal abnormalities. The purpose of this study was a comprehensive review of the literature regarding prenatal tetrasomy 9p syndrome with comparison of fetal abnormalities seen in different stages of fetal development. In addition, the comparison of mosaic vs . non

Unsedated transnasal esophagoscopy: a sensitive and safe outpatient screening tool

Transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) is a tool for otolaryngologists that is emerging for examination of the upper aerodigestive tract [ 1 ]. The feasibility and practicality of TNE for screening of head and neck cancer is useful for in-office examination without sedation [ 2 - 4 ]. Compared with conventional techniques, TNE has comparable diagnostic accuracy and patient tolerance [ 5 , 6 ]. A small caliber flexible endoscope with distal-chip technology allows more complete evaluations of patients with dysphagia, second primary cancers or laryngopharyngeal reflux by
