161. First Trimester Vaginal Bleeding

University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama. m Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, New Jersey and NYU School of Medicine, New York, New York; American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. n Specialty Chair, University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The American College of Radiology seeks and encourages collaboration with other organizations on the development of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria through society representation on expert panels (...) due to unintentional imaging of the pregnancy [67]. Because of its ionizing radiation, CT is generally not performed to evaluate vaginal bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy. CT may identify an ectopic pregnancy [68], but reported cases of ectopic pregnancy diagnosed on CT were often performed for other reasons or in patients not known to be pregnant [77,78]. When a patient is clinically unstable, emergent care should generally not be delayed by additional imaging with CT or MRI. RPOC may

No association was found between MR elastography stiffness and HCC presence in at least one study [146]. Emerging data indicate that elevation of stiffness is associated with future development of liver-related decompensation, HCC, and death [147]. FDG-PET/CT Positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) is not an appropriate screening test for HCC. PET/CT is also of limited utility in the diagnosis of HCC, because HCC uptake

to moderate alcohol consumption is associated with decreased risk of coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke, the association may not be causal and could be confounded by other characteristics of patients with low-level alcohol use.

Therefore, patients should not be advised to drink (...) to ? Drink below recommended drinking limits (see Table 1), and educate the patient about those limits, or ? Abstain from drinking. Patients should be advised to abstain if they have alcohol use disorder or other contraindications to drinking (e.g., pregnancy, liver disease) or are taking medications that may interact with alcohol (e.g., benzodiazepines, warfarin).

167. The Expressed Genome in Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke: Refinement, Diagnosis, and Prediction: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

Abstract There have been major advances in our knowledge of the contribution of DNA sequence variations to cardiovascular disease and stroke. However, the inner workings of the body reflect the complex interplay of factors beyond the DNA sequence, including epigenetic modifications, RNA transcripts, proteins, and metabolites, which together can be considered the “expressed genome.” The emergence of high-throughput technologies, including epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics (...) that render the genetic code into the functional consequences that influence a person’s health, that is, the “expressed genome,” including gene-regulatory elements, RNA transcripts, proteins, metabolites, and circulating cells in the bloodstream ( ). Accordingly, the relationships between these factors and cardiovascular diseases and stroke are less well understood. The recent emergence of high-throughput technologies centered on transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc, is now making

172. Methodological Standards for Meta-Analyses and Qualitative Systematic Reviews of Cardiac Prevention and Treatment Studies: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

in the broad cardiovascular field. A PubMed search with the terms meta-analysis and cardiovascular in the title/abstract yielded 53 results for the year 2000, 413 for the year 2010, and 1196 for the year 2014. The fundamental appeal of meta-analysis, which partly explains its popularity, is the idea of integrating evidence from multiple sources to provide reliable answers to important questions. The evidence-based medicine movement in general promotes a systematic approach to assessing the quality (...) of evidence, considering not only research design but also other characteristics of individual articles. Some evidence-based medicine hierarchies of evidence, however, assign the highest level (quality) of evidence to systematic reviews of randomized trials. Meta-analyses (and systematic reviews in general) are therefore sometimes automatically accorded a great deal of credibility. The placement of meta-analyses of randomized trials (and individual randomized trials) at the top of evidence hierarchies
