Radiography

Publication Title:

BACKGROUND: Research has shown that short-and long-term effects can result from stressful or invasive medical procedures performed on children in the radiology department. Short-term effects for the pediatric patient include pain, anxiety, crying, and lack of cooperation. The patient's parents also may experience short-term effects, including elevated anxiety and increased heart rate and blood pressure. Potential long-term effects include post-traumatic stress syndrome; fear; changes in pain perception and coping effectiveness; avoidance of medical care; and trypanophobia.

There are differences of opinion about the pathogenesis of Perthes' disease. All are agreed that it is due to ischaemia, but the cause of this and the size and number of infarctions are in dispute. Through the generosity of the contributors six whole femoral heads and core biopsies of five other cases have been studied radiographically and histologically. The findings ranged from an ischaemic arrest of ossification in the capital articular cartilage without infarction to multiple complete infarctions of the epiphysial bone.

The use of static-postural and dynamic-bending roentgenography by the medical and chiropractic professions was reviewed and a retrospective study of 30 symptomatic subjects was conducted to compare the diagnostic discrimination of dynamic lateral bending (DLB) procedures to that of a previously-reported static-postural method (Farfan) in determining the lumbar spine level which is most predisposed to the eventual development of degenerative disc disease.

The use of plain film radiography has long been a staple of the chiropractic profession. Radiographic examinations are a valuable tool in the chiropractic diagnosis of a patient's condition. This study shows the results of a review of all the radiographic examinations performed in the Janse Chiropractic Clinic during the 1982 calendar year. The diagnosis are classed as musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, or abdominal.

INTRODUCTION: The chiropractic profession relies heavily on conventional radiography for patient clinical evaluation. Although the modality is widely used, there exists surprisingly little descriptive information about the common radiographic findings seen on chiropractic patients. The goal of this study is to provide descriptive data regarding the frequency and type of radiographic findings seen in a convenience sample of chiropractic outpatients. METHODS: A group of 300 patient radiographic reports were selected from a chiropractic teaching clinic.
