Pulmonary Pseudoaneurysm Due To Penetrating Thoracic Trauma, Michael Mcmahon, Andrew Ea, Hector Ferral
Medical Research Day
Background: Pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm (PAP) is a rare but potentially lethal condition. Acquired PAPs are most commonly caused by iatrogenic trauma and infectious disease. Infectious causes include bacterial endocarditis, tuberculosis, mucormycosis, and pyogenic infection. Traumatic PAPs can be caused iatrogenically by pulmonary artery catheterization. Very few cases have been described of patients developing PAP as a complication of a gunshot wound to the chest. Radiologic findings of PAP include hilar enlargement or a new focal lung mass on chest radiograph. CT angiography shows saccular or fusiform areas of dilatation with homogenous contrast filling which occurs simultaneously with the pulmonary artery. …

Technical Adaptations For Cardiac Sodium Mri, Taylor L. Marcus
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Cardiac sodium (Na+) MRI has the potential to unveil relationships between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Unfortunately, this modality requires many technical adaptations before it’s possible to extract and compare image data between individuals. This study investigated whether cardiac electrocardiogram (ECG) gating could improve image quality, and whether a uniform phantom could increase signal uniformity if a surface coil is used to acquire the image. Healthy participants were imaged with a custom-built surface coil and 3.0-T MR system. Cardiac gated images presented with a decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), but intensity correction significantly increased image signal …
