123. Assessing the Accuracy of Caries Diagnosis in Bitewing Radiographs Using Different Reproduction Media (PubMed)

Assessing the Accuracy of Caries Diagnosis in Bitewing Radiographs Using Different Reproduction Media After introducing digital radiography, practitioners started reading radiographs from computer monitors; however, many still prefer hard-copy radiographs.This study aimed to assess the possible superiority of either type of radiograph recording media (computer monitor, film, or paper) in diagnosis and perception of the depth of the cariogenic lesions.Twenty digital bitewing radiographs (...) , obtained from 200 posterior extracted teeth, were displayed on an LG monitor and printed on paper and film using Kodak printers. Two observers independently measured lesions depth on the images. Serial sections of teeth were obtained and the sections were evaluated by a stereomicroscope to determine the actual depth of cariogenic lesions. The efficacy of the each medium was assessed by determining its specificity and sensitivity in comparison with those of histological images. Weighted kappa

MULTI-INSTITUTIONAL EVALUATION OF PRODUCING AND TESTING A NOVEL 3D-PRINTED LAPAROSCOPIC TRAINER. To create, distribute, and evaluate the efficacy of a portable, cost-effective 3D-printed laparoscopic trainer for surgical skills development.The UCI Trainer (UCiT) laparoscopic simulator was developed via computer-aided designs (CAD), which were used to 3D-print the UCiT. Once assembled, a tablet computer with a rear-facing camera was attached for video and optics. Four institutions were sent (...) the UCiT CAD files with a 3D-printer and instructions for UCiT assembly. For a comparison of the UCiT to a standard trainer, peg transfer and intracorporeal knot tying skills were accessed. These tasks were scored, and participants were asked to rate their experience with the trainers. Lastly, a questionnaire was given to individuals who 3D-printed and assembled the UCiT.We recruited 25 urologists; none had any 3D-printing experience. The cost of printing each trainer was $26.50 USD. Each institution

125. Will artificial intelligence ever replace doctors?

times ahead for the Airline Pilots Association. Making precision tools from 3D printers. Gourmet meals created with a voice-activated command. Theater and film productions starring faux actors created on keyboards. Will artificial intelligence invade the medical arena? The question is only how deeply it will invade. The role of the traditional physician is at risk of being marginalized as computer software hits the profession hard. Sure, computers cannot palpate an abdomen or perform a rectal exam (...) that sophisticated computer algorithms can synthesize an individual’s personal medical data and generate specific diagnoses, many of which might not have been considered by a human physician. Of course, there’s a lot more to being a decent physician than spitting out a list of diagnoses, as we doctors know despite when empowered patients bring us lists of diseases they think they have after spending some time in the Google School of Medicine. Although artificial intelligence is not a real doctor, it offers

126. It’s time to upgrade the outdated intake forms at health care clinics

eleven-page patient questionnaire with instructions to print and complete the form prior to my visit. Like many, I lacked immediate access to a printer. After showing up to my appointment without the form, I was expected to complete it in the clinic’s lobby. As a returning patient of this health system, most of the information asked was already available in the electronic health record (EHR). Did they really need to ask me about my city of birth again? What is already known in the EHR should populate (...) from any computer, tablet or phone, so that our patients can fill out this information in their own time and native language. The forms employ predictive follow up questions and synchronize with the EHR so that patients are prompted to complete only information that needs updating. Some of these companies even provide educational content to give patients context on the questions that they are being asked and the consents that they are signing. I have seen first hand how competitive the health care

132. A medical student in therapy

this appointment for a month. In March, I started to take an online physiology exam for school but instead spent twenty minutes staring motionless at the computer screen. I eventually input the answers and passed the test, but I’d stopped caring. A week later, I had a panic attack while riding the 6 train through Midtown Manhattan at rush hour. I’d already been feeling trapped by the tightly scheduled lifestyle of a medical student, and getting sandwiched between strangers inside an underground tube (...) of concrete didn’t help. In late April, I scheduled an appointment with my school’s counseling program. An attending psychiatrist did my initial interview: She was warm, and we spoke for over an hour in her well-lit office before she referred me to Dr. Hassan, one of her residents. Dr. Hassan’s soft voice makes me aware of the silence surrounding us. I hear no coworkers rustling about outside her basement-office door, no printers whirring in the background. Her movements are slow and deliberate

, and ultrasonographic (US) characteristics.A three-dimensional (3D) digital model of the human neck was reconstructed from computed tomography data of a subject. This model was used to create 3D-printed templates for various organs that require US visualization. The templates were injected with polymers that provided similar degrees of ultrasound permeability as the corresponding organs. For fabrication of each organ, the respective molds of organs, blood vessels, thyroid gland, and tumor were injected (...) . In the survey, all 45 participants replied that they found the phantom useful for FNAC training, and 30 medical students professed increased interest in thyroid diseases after using the phantom.We successfully fabricated a tailored thyroid gland phantom for transfixion practice. As most of the phantom parts are injected in molds fabricated using a 3D printer, they can be easily reproduced once the molds are fabricated. This phantom is expected to serve as an effective and fully tailored training model

139. Creating an Optimal 3D Printed Model for Temporal Bone Dissection Training. (PubMed)

Creating an Optimal 3D Printed Model for Temporal Bone Dissection Training. Making a 3-dimensional (3D) temporal bone model is simple using a plaster powder bed and an inkjet printer. However, it is difficult to reproduce air-containing spaces and precise middle ear structures. The objective of this study was to overcome these problems and create a temporal bone model that would be useful both as a training tool and for preoperative simulation.Drainage holes were made to remove excess materials (...) from air-containing spaces, ossicle ligaments were manually changed to bony structures, and small and/or soft tissue structures were colored differently while designing the 3D models. The outcomes were evaluated by 3 procedures: macroscopic and endoscopic inspection of the model, comparison of computed tomography (CT) images of the model to the original CT, and assessment of tactile sensation and reproducibility by 20 surgeons performing surgery on the model.Macroscopic and endoscopic inspection
