CT Scan of a normal sized gallbladder CT Scan of a gallbladderdiagnosed with CholecystitisAcute Cholecystitis is the sudden inflammation of the gallbladder. Over 90% of diagnosed acute cholecystitis cases are caused by obstruction of the cystic duct by gallstones in the gall bladder. Other possible causes include severe illness and tumors of the gallbladder.Acute cholecystitis occurs because the blockage causes an accumulation of bile in the gallbladder and increases pressure. The combination of concentrated bile and pressure building up can irritate the wall of the gallbladder causing it to swell. Severe inflammation of the gallbladder will interrupt normal blood flow, and if not treated can cause cell death. 22 year old Female Dx : DuctalCarcinoma Stage : 3Ductal Carcinoma, or Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) is the type of cancer present in 80 percent of all breast cancer diagnosis. Ductal refers to the fact that the cancer originates in the milk duct of the breast and carcinoma means anything that originates from the skin or tissue of the breast; or any cancer for that matter. The word invasive means that the cancer cells have extended beyond the walls of the milk ducts and into the breast tissue.What is Ductal Carcinoma?

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

What is a Uterine Fibroid Embolization?Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a invasive treatment for fibroid tumors of the uterus.Benign tumors that arise from the muscular walls of the uterus.Symptoms vary depending on the size of the tumor, and location.Pelvic painPressure on the bladder and rectum.Obstructed urination and defecation.SymptomsTreatments Minimally invasive procedure (UFE)Using FlouroscopyInsert a catheter, injecting tiny particles into the femoral artery.By doing so, will block the blood flow to the uterine fibroid.Result: Starvation and death of fibroid Group 3Alina Bodea Co Presenter & WriterFarley Bouguillon - Writer Ravneet Singh - PowerPointWilliam Tim Wells - PresenterYunes Ahmed PowerPointChasity Lorenzo ResearchJulia Lee Research Fibular HemimeliaWhat is Fibular Hemimelia?

-Fibular hemimelia is a birth defect where part or all the fibular bone is absent.-Most often is unilateral.

Diagnosis and Causes-Can be observed in radiographs during pregnancy-Shortened leg, ankle or knee instability due to absence of fibula bone. -Most cases of fibular hemimelia are thought to occur for no reason.

Treatment Treatment will depend on the severity and condition of the limb.Choices consist of either amputation of lower leg or tibia lengthening.
