  • Tag, Naima (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Background: The detection of bone infection can be very difficult especially in bone with altered structure due to prior trauma or surgical procedures. Complicated osteomyelitis (COM) is becoming a public ...
  • Doruyter, Alexander Govert George (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Background: Hybrid imaging using single photon emission computed tomography/low dose (x-ray) computed tomography (SPECT/LDCT) is of benefit in preoperative scintigraphy of primary hyperparathyroidism. The ...
  • Groenewald, Annemari (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Introduction - X-ray imaging is used to diagnose and follow up various conditions in neonates (i.e. pre-term babies and babies up to the age of 28 days). Chest anterior-posterior (AP) radiographs are used ...
  • Beukes, Philip Rudolph (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Background: The assignment of radiation weighting factors to high energy neutron sources is important as there is reason to believe that neutron relative biological effectiveness (RBE) may be related ...
  • Bohm, L.   Serafin, A. M.   Fernandez, P.   Van der Watt, G.   Bouic, P. J. D.   Harvey, J. (Health and Medical Publishing Group (HMPG), 2012-08)
    Introduction. Diagnosis of prostate cancer by prostate specific antigen (PSA) is error-prone and cannot distinguish benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) from malignant disease, nor identify aggressive and indolent types. ...
  • Sauerwein, Wolfgang   Engenhart-Cabillic, Rita   Forman, Jeffrey D.   Gueulette, John   Hachem, Sabet   Jones, Dan   Krull, Andreas   Lukas, Peter   Mandrillon, Pierre   Petry, Winfried   Rosenberg, Ivan   Venimmen, Frederik   Welsh, James S. (Health and Medical Publishing Group (HMPG), 2012-04)
    To the Editor: Abratt’s letter needs a response. We are currently – or have been directly – involved in treating patients with fast neutrons for decades; some with more than 20 years’ experience in proton therapy, and ...
  • Auger, Daniel A.   Zhong, Xiaodong   Epstein, Frederick H.   Spottiswoode, Bruce S. (BioMed Central, 2012-01)
    Background The mechanics of the right ventricle (RV) are not well understood as studies of the RV have been limited. This is, in part, due to the RV's thin wall, asymmetric geometry and irregular motion. ...
  • Keet A. D. (HMPG, 1974-03)
    The mucosa, being the innermost layer of the gastro intestinal tract, is intimately concerned with digestion and absorption, and, presumably, also with the transport of intestinal contents. In anatomical, physiological and ...
  • Malan, P. J. (Health and Medical Publishing Group (HMPG), 1975-08)
    Two cases of rhabdomyosarcoma of the bladder are reported. These tumors mainly occur in male children. They may arise in any part of the bladder and usually cause dysuria, lower urinary tract obstruction and a palpable ...
  • Muller, C. J. B. (Health and Medical Publishing Group (HMPG), 1974-04)
    Thermography is discussed, and attention is drawn to its ancillary value in making a diagnosis. Some examples of thermograms are demonstrated.
  • Van der Merwe, E. J.   Cilliers, F. B. (1977-11)
    During fluoroscopic bladder and bronchial examinations the radiation workers concerned are exposed to 90°-scattered photons. The effective energy expressed in mm Al was measured for these photons exited at tube potentials ...
  • Muller, C. J. B. (HMPG, 1978-02)
    In terms of regulations gazetted in 1973, the Department of Health has control of the practice of medical radiology in South Africa. The regulations and the rules of the South African Medical and Dental Council that apply ...

    [No abstract available]
  • Beyers, J. A. (HMPG, 1979-05)
    A short review is given of the anatomy of the pulmonary arterial system and of the bronchial arterial system. The normal vascular pattern of the lung as well as the altered vascular pattern under a number of abnormal ...
  • Beyers, J. A. (1979)
    A clinical classification embracing most of the causes of pulmonary oedema is given, as well as a radiological classification, and the different ways in which pulmonary oedema may present radiologically are briefly described.
  • Van Heerden, P. D. R.   Baard, W. P.   Klopper, J. F.   Reyneke, N. J.   Weich, H. F. H.   Blake, R. S.   Przybojewski, J. Z. (HMPG, 1979-04)
    Although the ECG-gated radionuclide blood pool scan (GBPS) has become an established method for studying regional myocardial wall motion, it is usually performed with the aid of an expensive computer system. A simple, ...
  • Beyers, J. A. (HMPG, 1979-05)
    An approach to the recognition of lesions on chest radiographs is outlined. Four basic groups of anormalities by means of which lesions can be recognized are mentioned and are briefly described, namely an opacity, an area ...
  • Bruckner, V. (HMPG, 1979-09)
    Two therapeutic modalities are currently of great interest, namely photo- and radiosensitization. Whereas photosensitizers only function in combination with ultraviolet (UV) light, radiosensitizers act only in combination ...
  • Beyers, J. A. (HMPG, 1979-11)
    Different approaches to the analysis of radiographs of the lungs are briefly discussed. A systematic routine is proposed, outlined and briefly motivated. It is emphasized that radiological findings must be correlated ...
  • Beyers, J. A. (HMPG, 1979-6)
    A very brief review is given of the pathology of primary pulmonary tuberculosis. Numerous characteristic, but not pathognomonic, radiological appearances of primary pulmonary tuberculosis are briefly described and some of ...
