Extrapontine Myelinolysis and Pituitary Tumor Apoplexy in Pregnancy Background Pituitary tumor apoplexy (PTA) is an uncommon but potentially fatal clinical emergency resulting from abrupt ischemic infarction or hemorrhage of the pituitary tumor. A variety of precipitating factors has been linked to PTA, including pregnancy. However, gestational pituitary apoplexy is limited to isolated
Optic 3D Modeling in Ophthalmic Treatment Visual impairment is a global health concern. Visually impaired patients are at high risk for accidents, depression, and social withdrawal. Eye disorders like age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and retinitis pigmentosa (RP) cause irreparable vision loss and affect the quality of life of

THERMOGRAPHY AS A SCREENING TOOL IN CLINICAL OPHTHALMIC ONCOLOGY STUDY BACKGROUND Although intraocular tumors are rare, with an incidence of 5 per million adults, the diagnosis has been biased towards the physical examination, Color Doppler Imaging (CDI), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Indocyanine Green Angiography (ICGA), or Fluorescein Angiography (FA). Literature reviews suggest
Combination IOP Reduction Therapy in Open-Angle Glaucoma GLAUCOMA BACKGROUND Globally, glaucoma is a leading cause of permanent blindness. As of 2020, about 80 million people worldwide, and 3 million Americans, are affected by glaucoma. The most common form of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma.

Historically, HSCT was referred to as bone marrow transplantation (BMT) because bone marrow was the sole source of transplanted hematopoietic stem
Using Ultrasound to Analyze Malignant and Benign Orbital Space-Occupying Lesions Most orbital space-occupying lesions come from tissues in the orbital space or metastasize from other system tumors. The bulk of clinical manifestations of these lesions such as diplopia, protrusion, and loss of vision are often nonspecific, so imaging technology is crucial
