♥ Book Title : Prevalence and Clinical Significance of Extravascular Incidental Findings in Patients Undergoing CT Cervico-cerebral Angiography
☯ Full Synopsis : "Highlights: CT cervico-cerebral angiography (CTCCA) is a commonly performed study for assessment of vascular pathologies of head and neck. This study assessed the prevalence, clinical significance and management of extravascular incidental findings detected on CTCCA. This study demonstrated the presence of clinically significant incidental findings in 14% of patients undergoing CTCCA with 8% of these findings deemed to be highly significant. 19% of patients with highly clinically significant findings did not receive appropriate follow up. A standardised method of reporting incidental findings, such as that used in this paper is suggested to aid radiologists and referring physicians in recording and communicating these findings. Abstract: Introduction: CT cervico-cerebral angiography (CTCCA) is now the first line diagnostic imaging modality for the majority of vascular pathologies of the head and neck with diagnostic value comparable to or better than traditional angiographic techniques. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence, clinical significance and management of extravascular incidental findings detected on CTCCA. Materials and methods: A retrospective review of the CTCCA reports of 302 consecutive patients from 2009 to 2013 was undertaken. Extravascular incidental findings were classified, according to an adaptation of the CT colonography data and reporting system (CRADS), as EV1–EV4. EV1 = no incidental findings, EV2 = clinically insignificant incidental finding, EV3 = incidental finding of intermediate clinical significance, EV4 = highly clinically significant finding. Follow up of the electronic medical records of patients with EV3 or EV4 findings was undertaken to determine subsequent management. Results: Potentially clinically significant findings were demonstrated in 14.2% of patients with 8.6% of patients having a highly clinically significant finding. 4 incidental findings were confirmed to be malignant lesions and 5 required acute intervention. In addition 19% of patients with highly clinically significant incidental findings did not receive appropriate follow up. Discussion: This study has demonstrated the presence of clinically important incidental findings in a significant proportion of patients undergoing CTCCA with a significant minority of these patients not receiving follow up. A standardised method of reporting incidental findings, such as that used in this paper, would aid radiologists and referring physicians in recording and communicating these findings."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Incidental Findings
☯ Full Synopsis : "Young lawyer Nikki Avalon is looking for a job. And she finds one at Garrett Law. Right out of the gate, she takes over an important product liability class action, replacing a lawyer who left the firm under mysterious circumstances. The case could launch her career—or it could cost her life. Dirk Demerest grew Thor Wireless from a garage start-up to the worldwide leader in wireless technology. His latest product, the SignalBoss cell phone, uses ultra-powerful radio waves to get reception anywhere in the world. It’s an instant success, quickly replacing satellite phone technology and leapfrogging the competition. Volatile and unpredictable, Dirk does what it takes to protect his hard-won empire. Jack Linden is one of the unlucky ones. After he falls and injures himself at work, his doctor discovers unusual neurological changes caused by the SignalBoss’ intense radio waves. The symptoms threaten to destroy his life—as well as the lives of other heavy SignalBoss users. Jack must decide whether to undergo dangerous experimental surgery to relieve his excruciating pain. In her first big case, Nikki finds herself fighting battles on all fronts. Dirk Demerest will stop at nothing to kill the lawsuit. Garrett Law turns out to be a hotbed of hostility and lapsed ethics, a nightmare of a workplace. And a traumatic event from her past comes back to haunt her. Will she win the case for Jack and the other victims? Will she survive? What you seek isn’t always what you’ll find…"Article| Lisa von Biela| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Incidental Radiological Findings
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book covers incidental radiological findings (IFs) from different perspectives, provides interesting ethical background information, highlights the differences between IFs in clinical routine and during research studies, explains the management of IFs with reference to practices in different countries. The prevalence of IFs is increasing due to the wider use of modern imaging modalities in routine clinical practice and large population-based cohort studies. The reporting of these findings may lead to further diagnostic investigations and treatment and must therefore be handled with knowledge and care. The management of IFs in clinical routine is regulated by the guidelines of the different academic societies, while management in the setting of research studies depends on a variety of factors. In general, IFs must be disclosed to the imaged subject if they are potentially clinically relevant, but subjects must also be protected from the consequences of false positive findings. This book, written by distinguished experts in their fields, discusses all these issues and will be of interest to radiologists, other clinicians, and radiographers/technicians."Article| Sabine Weckbach| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Incidental Findings in Neuroimaging and Their Management
☯ Full Synopsis : "A multidisciplinary guide to managing incidental findings in neuroimaging from top experts Incidental Findings in Neuroimaging and Their Management: A Guide for Radiologists, Neurosurgeons, and Neurologists presents a streamlined, case-based approach to 50 commonly seen incidental findings in neuroimaging. Edited by Kaye Westmark, Dong Kim, and Roy Riascos, this unique book provides the necessary knowledge to manage significant unexpected findings—from identification and analysis to efficacious interventions. With collaborative contributions from neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, otolaryngologists, body and musculoskeletal imaging experts, endocrinologists and hematologists/oncologists, this resource encompasses a wide spectrum of incidental findings. Organized by six sections, the book starts with normal variants that are extremely important to recognize in order to avoid unwarranted additional testing and unnecessary stress for the patient. Subsequent sections detail abnormalities that require extensive clinical evaluation in order to determine ideal management. These include incidental findings for extracranial, extra-spinal, intracranial, and intraspinal imaging. The final section outlines CT and MR imaging artifacts that are particularly concerning because they may mimic more dangerous pathologies while degrading imaging quality and obscuring real findings. Key Features Key findings and differential diagnosis are listed for each entity Diagnostic decision trees present algorithms in an easy-to-understand manner Artifact analyses explain the technical reason for each artifact and what can be done to mitigate effects Clinical Q&As connect the radiologic diagnosis with actual case management decisions and provide in-depth background information that is applicable to management in various scenarios This essential guide will help trainee and practicing neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists interpret incidental spine and brain imaging findings and make clinically informed, complex treatment decisions."Article| Kaye D.

♥ Book Title : Incidental Findings on Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-Positive and HIV-Negative Persons
☯ Full Synopsis : "Abstract Background Incidental findings on coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) have a great impact on the benefits and costs of testing for cardiovascular disease. The number of incidental findings might be increased in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive individuals compared with the general population. Data are limited regarding the association between incidental findings and HIV infection. Methods We assessed the prevalence and factors associated with incidental findings among HIV-positive and HIV-negative participants ≥45 years undergoing CCTA. Logistic regression was performed to evaluate the factors associated with incidental findings in the HIV-positive and HIV-negative groups. For the analysis of the HIV effect, a propensity score-matched dataset of HIV-positive/HIV-negative participants was used. Results We included 553 participants, 341 with and 212 without HIV infection. Incidental findings were observed in 291 of 553 (53%) patients. In 42 of 553 (7.6%) participants, an incidental finding resulted in additional workup. A malignancy was diagnosed in 2 persons. In the HIV-positive group, age (1.31 per 5 years, 1.10–1.56) and smoking (2.29, 1.43–3.70) were associated with incidental findings; in the HIV-negative group, age (1.26, 1.01–1.59) and a CAC score >0 (2.08, 1.09–4.02) were associated with incidental findings. Human immunodeficiency virus seropositivity did not affect the risk of incidental findings. Conclusions Incidental findings were highly prevalent among HIV-positive and HIV-negative persons. Human immunodeficiency virus infection was not associated with an increased risk of incidental findings."Article| no defined| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Right to Know: A Revised Standard for Reporting Incidental Findings
☯ Full Synopsis : "Abstract: During the course of biomedical research, researchers sometimes obtain information on participants that is outside the aim of the study but may nonetheless be relevant to the participants. These incidental findings, as they are known, have been the focus of a substantial amount of discussion in the bioethics literature, and a consensus has begun to emerge about what researchers should do in light of the possibility of incidental findings. A consensus, however, is not necessarily correct. In this article, we address the common view that reporting of incidental findings should be based primarily on the possibility of medical benefit, factoring in the findings' validity, clinical actionability, and significance to health or reproduction. While such medical beneficence should not be discarded, the need to give proper attention to participants' autonomy, privacy, and interests (especially considering discussion of participants' right not to know) suggests an alternative standard for when to report incidental findings: even if they are of no direct medical benefit, incidental findings should be reported based on the extent to which the participant can be expected to comprehend the information. We will offer a preliminary defense of this alternative as best respecting participants' autonomy and privacy and promoting their interests. However, we acknowledge that the standard would face significant practical barriers, and these barriers lead us to propose a metaconsent addendum that would allow subjects to essentially waive the comprehension standard when resource or other constraints make meeting it impracticable ."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
