Beverage Can Stay-Tabs Pose Swallowing Risk

A new study from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center reports that beverage can stay-tabs pose a potential ingestion risk. In the 1970s, U.S. manufacturers switched to the stay-tab design after safety concerns about pull-tabs. The new study found 19 cases of stay-tab ingestion at a single institution, mainly among teenagers. Further, the study found that most ingested stay-tabs are not visible on x-rays. Ingestion of foreign bodies with sharp edges can cause injury to the gastrointestinal tract. This study will be presented by Lane F. Donnelly, M.D.

Unindicated CT Series Result in Unnecessary Radiation Exposure for Patients

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin - Madison found that more than half of patients undergoing abdominal CT received unnecessary additional imaging series resulting in excess, avoidable radiation exposure. The researchers reviewed the appropriateness and radiation dose of abdomen and pelvis CT exams for 500 patients performed at outside institutions and submitted to UW - Madison for interpretation. There were a total of 978 series for the 500 patients. Approximately 35 percent (345/978) of the CT series in 52 percent (261/500) of the patients were determined to be unindicated. The mean excess radiation dose per patient from unnecessary scans was 11.3 millisieverts (mSv), equivalent to the dose received from 113 chest x-rays. This study will be presented by Kristie Guite, M.D.

Smart Phones Allow Quick Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis

Typically, a patient arriving at the emergency room with suspected appendicitis will undergo computed tomography
