The current study extended prior work on the Normative Male Alexithymia Scale (NMAS), a unidimensional measure of some men's limitations in expressing emotion that results from gender-based socialization informed by the masculine norm of …

The use of simulation and standardized patients in medical education is firmly established. In this 'point-counterpoint' format we debate not their important function but the extent to which they are used to establish 'evidence' for trainees'…

OBJECTIVE: To characterize hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (HOA) in skeletons to allow its recognition in the archeologic record. METHODS: Individuals diagnosed in life with diseases known to cause HOA were examined from the Hamman-Todd, Grant, and…

BACKGROUND: Conventional wisdom holds that the elderly living in rural areas suffer poor health and have limited access to health care compared with their urban peers. The relation between poor health and limited access, however, has yet to be…

OBJECTIVES: Elastography of the breast is a new technique for characterization of breast lesions. The reproducibility of elastographic techniques has been questioned. Precompression is known to effect elastographic results. This study determined the…

Purpose: This study presents test-retest reliability of optotype visual acuity (OVA) across 60 degrees of horizontal gaze position in patients with infantile nystagmus syndrome (INS). Also, the validity of the metric gaze-dependent functional vision…

Associating microRNAs (miRNAs) with cancers is an important step of understanding the mechanisms of cancer pathogenesis and finding novel biomarkers for cancer therapies. In this study, we constructed a miRNA-cancer association network (miCancerna)…

Lin and Wang have introduced a quadratic version of the logrank test, appropriate for situations in which the underlying survival distributions may cross. In this note, we generalize the Lin-Wang procedure to incorporate weights and investigate the…

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated a fully structured interview for restless legs syndrome (RLS) for potential use in primary care settings and in epidemiological research. METHODS: Seventy-four veterans were recruited at Veterans Affairs outpatient clinics.…

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate blindly breast ultrasound images corrected for the speed of sound in breast tissue compared with conventional images. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, 409 images from 153 patients were obtained…

Breast lymphomas only account for approximately 0.15% of malignant breast carcinomas. Half of these are primary lymphomas, and the other half are metastatic to the breast. Ultrasound elastography has been proven to aid in the diagnosis of breast…

BACKGROUND: Correlating peak height velocity (PHV) with assessments of skeletal maturity has important implications in the treatment of scoliosis and other pediatric orthopaedic disorders. This study aims to compare the appearance of the elbow to the…

Higher than expected film badge readings were obtained for radiologic technologists operating computed tomography scanners. The cause of the erroneous dose assignments was determined to be improper storage of the film packet in the console area.…

The objective of this study was the development, optimization, and validation of a novel reverse-phase high-pressure liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method for the quantification of reduced glutathione in pharmaceutical formulations utilizing simple…

Semen assessments were performed on ejaculates from 25 men with proven fertility requesting vasectomy. Multiple cytological slides were made simultaneously from each ejaculate and analyzed by a single technician. The morphology data obtained were…

As compared with white smokers, black smokers, although they report using fewer cigarettes per day, are at higher risk for most smoking-related diseases. Among black smokers serum cotinine levels are also higher in proportion to cigarettes per day;…

A slight modification in the method used to remove the top keratinized layer of skin in the epidermal scarification model of HSV infection results in an easier, less painful, more uniform and reproducible means of infection. The back of mice was…

As sentinel node biopsy has emerged as a possible alternative to axillary node dissection in patients with operable breast cancer, this procedure is also emerging as a possible alternative in patients who have received prior neoadjuvant chemotherapy.…

This study examined the validity and reliability of full and short versions of the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales (AIMS). One hundred fifty-five patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis followed at a University Hospital Rheumatology Clinic completed…

OBJECTIVES: To determine the accuracy and cost-effectiveness of nuclear scintigraphy for the diagnosis and localization of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and to determine whether nuclear scintigraphy accurately predicts the results of angiography.…
