PET Imaging Performed Immediately After COVID 19 Vaccination: What A Radiologist Should Know

Editorial

1. Editorial An interesting article titled “Frequency and Characteristics of Nodal and Deltoid FDG and 11-C Choline uptake on PET imaging performed after COVID-19 vaccination” was recently published in American Journal of Roentgenology. In this Editorial, I will like to discuss important pertinent findings of this study. 67 patients were recruited (66 had undergone PET/CT and 1 had undergone PET/MRI; FDG in 54 and 11-C Choline in 13) in this study.

Metastasis to soft tissue and bone is a challenging issue to make a diagnosis because of similarity to the mesenchymal tumor. DOI:http://dx.doi.org/10.47829/ACMCR.2021.61901

Whole Blood Gene Expression Profiling in Response to Treatment for Septic Shock: A Case Report

Review Article

1. Abstract Septic shock develops as a result of the rapid progression of sepsis due to the massive release of proinflammatory mediators, and is characterized by severe hypotension and tissue hypoxia. While early goal-directed therapy (EGDT) and polymyxin B direct hemoperfusion (PMX-DHP) have shown effectiveness in the treatment of septic shock, no biomarkers are available to accurately assess the therapeutic responses in such patients. Here, we performed the first whole blood gene expression profiling in a successfully treated case of septic shock. A 74-year-old woman was admitted to the intensive care unit and diagnosed with septic shock and dangerously low blood pressure (50/38 mmHg). High Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE)-II and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) scores (40 and 14, respectively) indicated a significant probability of a fatal outcome. http://dx.doi.org/10.47829/ACMCR.2021.61701

Rural Healthcare in Light of a Multinational Pandemic: A Global Perspective

Review Article

1. Abstract Rural healthcare recently came into international spotlight, with recent reported influx of the COVID-19 into rural regions. This article focuses on susceptibilities of the rural population to pandemics and mitigating measures to prevent formation of disease epicentre. Rural Healthcare is by far one of the most neglected areas of medicine. The discrepancies in quality of rural healthcare has been evident for decades, yet no lasting measures have been able to bridge this gap till date. Lessons gleaned from the recent SARS and H1N1 pandemics has once again fallen through the cracks in a futile attempt to curb urban spread. http://dx.doi.org/10.47829/ACMCR.2021.61801
