Impact of clinical history on chest radiograph interpretation

Background: The inclusion of clinical information may have unrecognized influence in the interpretation of diagnostic testing.

Objective: The objective of the study was to determine the impact of clinical history on chest radiograph interpretation in the diagnosis of pneumonia.

Design: Prospective case-based study.

Methods: Radiologists interpreted 110 radiographs of children evaluated for suspicion of pneumonia. Clinical information was withheld during the first interpretation. After 6 months the radiographs were reviewed with clinical information. Radiologists reported on pneumonia indicators described by the World Health Organization (ie, any infiltrate, alveolar infiltrate, interstitial infiltrate, air bronchograms, hilar adenopathy, pleural effusion).

Setting: Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Boston Children's Hospital.

Participants: Six board-certified radiologists.

Outcome measures: Inter- and inter-rater reliability were assessed using the kappa statistic.

Results: The addition of clinical history did not have a substantial impact on the inter-rater reliability in the identification of any infiltrate, alveolar infiltrate, interstitial infiltrate, pleural effusion, or hilar adenopathy. Inter-rater reliability in the identification of air bronchograms improved from fair (k = 0.32) to moderate (k = 0.53). Intra-rater reliability for the identification of alveolar infiltrate remained substantial to almost perfect for all 6 raters with and without clinical information. One rater had a decrease in inter-rater reliability from almost perfect (k = 1.0) to fair (k = 0.21) in the identification of interstitial infiltrate with the addition of clinical history.

Conclusions: Alveolar infiltrate and pleural effusion are findings with high intra- and inter-rater reliability in the diagnosis of bacterial pneumonia. The addition of clinical information did not have a substantial impact on the reliability of these findings.

History

Washington University School of Medicine was established in 1891, when the St. Louis Medical College became the Medical Department of Washington University. In 1899, the Missouri Medical College, which had been in operation since 1840, joined the Medical Department, uniting the two oldest medical schools west of the Mississippi River.

In 1910, the school entered into an agreement with Barnes Hospital, which still was in the planning stages, and the existing St. Louis Children’s Hospital to allow students into the wards as clinical clerks. The agreement also gave the school the opportunity to conduct clinical research and appoint staff members at both hospitals.

In 1919, the Department of Surgery appointed its first full-time chairman, Evarts Graham, MD, as the William K. Bixby Professor and chairman of the department. Graham, who was surgeon-in-chief at Barnes Hospital from 1919 to 1951, stressed the importance of the basic sciences to the training of surgeons and believed that the study of general surgery should constitute a large share of the time spent in preparing for a career in a surgical specialty.

Graham’s career was marked by many outstanding achievements, including the first successful pneumonectomy for cancer in 1933 and the development of cholecystography as a non-invasive way of evaluating the biliary tree. More than 40 of his trainees went on to become department chairmen or heads of specialty services.

His legacy of integrating basic science research and clinical care to create the surgical scientist was continued by later chairmen: Carl Moyer, MD (1951-1965), and Walter Ballinger, MD (1967 – 1978).

In 1981, Samuel Wells Jr., MD, became the Bixby Professor and chairman of the department. In his 17 years as chairman, he recruited a world-class faculty, emphasized basic and translational research, and placed great emphasis on educating academic leaders in surgery.

This tradition of excellence continues today under Timothy J. Eberlein, MD, Bixby Professor and chair of the Department of Surgery, the Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Distinguished Professor and director of the Siteman Cancer Center and surgeon-in-chief at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. As a recent example, Eberlein received the 2006 Dr. Rodman L. Sheen and Thomas G. Sheen Award, given each year for outstanding contribution to the medical profession. The Sheen award has honored 39 of the foremost members of the nation’s medical community since the beginning in 1968 and was awarded to Eberlein for his instrumental development of the Siteman Cancer Center, which was designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute in 2005, six years after its inception. Siteman is the only cancer center in Missouri and within a 240-mile radius of St. Louis to hold this prestigious designation. In 2004, Eberlein was elected to the prestigious Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors medical scientists in the United States can receive. In addition, Department of Surgery faculty members, over the past decade, have frequently served as presidents of major medical societies and associations.

In recent years, the department has expanded, with the formation of the Section of Minimally Invasive Surgery in 2007 and the Division of Public Health Sciences in 2011. The division serves as a major center for research, education and outreach in the field of public health.

Meanwhile, Washington University School of Medicine continues as one of the premier medical schools in the world – consistently ranked among the top 10 research medical schools by U.S.News & World Report.

Adele Croninger, Ernest Wynder and Surgery Chairman Evarts Graham performed research to link smoking with lung cancer.

In addition to performing the first successful lung removal for cancer in 1933, Evarts Graham, MD, and colleagues contributed groundbreaking research that linked smoking to the rising tide of lung cancer. He allowed a young medical student, Ernest Wynder, to interview lung cancer patients in an effort to investigate a correlation and agreed to be a coauthor on the report, which appeared in the May 27, 1950 issue of JAMA. Later, he partnered with researcher Adele Croninger to establish a link between smoke, cigarette tar and lung cancer.


The Importance of Context: Teaching the History of Abortion in the United States

When you design a lecture for medical and nursing students on the history of abortion care in the United States, keep these three teaching points in mind.

1) How their training and education has a direct impact women’s’ access to safe abortion.

2) How the convergence of law and public health can hinder their practice.

3) Referral to high quality abortion providers is a vital aspect of patient-centered care.

In the past 3 years alone, states across the country enacted over 200 restrictions on women’s ability to access abortion. They require physicians to disregard evidence-based protocols and interfere with physicians’ professional duties to place the primacy of the patient above all else.

When abortion is illegal, or inaccessible, women continue to have abortions at the same rate as when abortion is legal and accessible. The difference is, illegal and inaccessible abortion drastically increases maternal morbidity and mortality. In fact around the world, approximately 44,000 women die every year as a result of unsafe abortion.

To understand the current restrictions on abortion, medical students need an understand abortion access from a historical context. How have the current restrictions come to pass? What are the major milestones? And what impact do restrictions have on patient- centered care, and why do they matter?

PHOTO BY ROBERT FISH, MONTEREY HERALD . THIS IS THE BIXBY BRIDGE IN BIG SUR.

MONTEREY – Wending their way along Highway 1, travelers often search for one of the most photographed and iconic bridges in the world – the Bixby Creek Bridge.

But almost none are aware of the house sitting on a coastal outcropping north of the bridge with spectacular views of the span, Big Sur coastline and Pacific Ocean.

The Bixby House sits on 11 acres of a peninsula situated about 12 miles south of Carmel and is now listed for sale for $16 million.

Originally designed and built in 1959 by Gregory Ain, a celebrated architect, for Ralph B. Atkinson, a film producer, inventor, social activist and one-time Monterey Peninsula College Board head, the house stands as a historical point of interest.

Today the 5,200-square-foot home boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms, exposed beams, wood carvings, and a stone sculpture in the garden by Gordon Newell.

Newell studied at Occidental College, UC Berkeley and apprenticed with San Francisco’s most-celebrated sculptor of the 1930s, Ralph Stackpole. Newell taught at Choulnard Art School and Occidental College and the Sculpture Center in Monterey, and lived out his life in Carmel.

The property’s ocean-side perch above the rocky shores of the Pacific provides space for walking paths, a deck, outdoor dining area, and a rustic guesthouse built in the 1800s and shipped from the East Coast through the Panama Canal in the 1960s to its current spot cliff-side along with the main house.

According to the Los Angeles Conservancy, Ain was a visionary architect as much as a social activist who believed architecture could make the lives of all people better. He designed communities with affordable housing accessible to all, and put this philosophy into practice in Los Angeles.

From the 1930s to the 1960s, Ain designed innovative single-family homes, cooperative housing, apartment complexes, and entire communities. Ain’s tract developments fostered indoor/outdoor living and community interaction across racial lines. His Mar Vista Tract, built in 1948, became L.A.’s first Modern historic district in 2003 containing solely Modern-style, post-World War II homes. It is considered an outstanding embodiment of Aim’s philosophy that modern architecture makes for better living and should be available to everyone .

The Mar Vista plan was to develop 100 houses on 60 acres. Because the Federal Housing Administration was skeptical about the modernistic design, only 52 houses were built. The existing tract was marketed as the Modernique Homes development emphasizing the flexible, open nature of the floorplans which included folding doors that could convert space from one room to two, and capitalized on the indoor-outdoor living concept. The tract’s Mid-Century Modern design utilized landscaping for a park-like setting without fences or walls and included a variety of fruit trees to encourage neighbors to share borne fruit.

In 1949, the Museum of Modern Art commissioned Ain to build an exhibition house for the institution to temporarily reside in the museum’s garden. Ain approached the MoMA commission with a commitment to affordability, without sacrificing design, constructing a full-size home for about $15,500 or about $165,000 in today’s dollars, according to an article in Artsy, an online platform for collecting and discovering art.

The article stated that because of his political views, Ain was hounded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for years during the Red Scare, that left his reputation damaged. J. Edgar Hoover considered the left-leaning architect the most dangerous architect in America. He lost numerous commissions but found support from prominent and like-minded Angelenos.

Ain designed the Bixby House, along with James Homer Garrott, for Atkinson in the late 1950s. Atkinson had worked for Eastman Kodak where he developed new methods for processing color film for the motion picture industry and held many patents. He produced a movie called “Alchemist in Hollywood” that explains chemical processes used in the motion picture laboratory. Atkinson started his own companies in Los Angeles – the Atkinson Color Laboratories and the Ferroprint Corp. He and his wife Dorothy sold his businesses and moved to Monterey County where he had his impressive house built on the cliffs at Bixby Landing in Big Sur.

Atkinson served on the MPC board for eight years, four of them as chair, then focused his energy as a public servant, possessed a great belief in civil liberties and served as the California regional director of the American Civil Liberties Union. The Monterey County chapter of the organization gives an annual award in his name. He died in a single-car accident north of Marina on Highway 1 in 1975.

Julius Shulman, a celebrated American photographer known for his comprehensive documentation of Mid-Century Modern architecture and urban development in Los Angeles, took photos of the Bixby House as part of his historical record in 1963. Shulman also photographed the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, and Oscar Niemeyer and further exposed Mid-Century Modern Architecture in California to the world.

The Bixby House was purchased in the 1970s by “Candid Camera” creator and host Allen Funt, according to public records, who added stained-glass windows and a mosaic-tiled bathroom. The house was next sold in 2000 to Bixby Ocean Ranches, then later that year sold to Armand Neukermans who was on the Hewlett-Packard team that invented the inkjet printer. In 2015, the house was sold to Bixby Ocean House, LLC.

The listing is through Sotheby’s International Realty, Carmel Rancho Brokerage agents Noel and Steve Beutel.


Bill Bixby, TV Actor, Dies at 59 Starred in 3 Long-Running Series

Bill Bixby, whose long career in television included starring roles in three popular series, died on Sunday at his home in Century City. He was 59.

The cause was prostate cancer, said Pamela Golum, a spokeswoman for the NBC-TV show "Blossom." Mr. Bixby, the show's director, was on the job until last week.

In the CBS comedy "My Favorite Martian," which ran from 1963 to 1966, Mr. Bixby played a newspaper reporter who was the comic foil to a mischievous extraterrestrial played by Ray Walston.

Three years later, after that show went off the air, he moved into the role of a wise, stalwart parent in "The Courtship of Eddie's Father." The ABC comedy, which ran until 1972, featured him as the widowed father of a precocious 6-year-old, played by Brandon Cruz.

After the NBC series "The Magician" in the 1973-74 season, Mr. Bixby went on to star in "The Incredible Hulk," which ran from 1978 to 1982 on CBS. In the series, inspired by a Marvel comic-book character, Mr. Bixby played David Banner, a research scientist whose body chemistry is altered by a freak laboratory accident. When angered, Banner is transformed into a huge, greenish creature who terrifies evildoers as well as innocents. The muscle-laden Hulk was played by Lou Ferrigno, a bodybuilder.

Mr. Bixby returned to comedy in the 1983-84 CBS series "Goodnight, Beantown," with Mariette Hartley.

A native of San Francisco, Mr. Bixby attended San Francisco City College and studied speech and philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley. He was working as a lifeguard when an advertising executive offered him a job as a model in car ads.

He soon went to Hollywood, where he landed a part in an episode of "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis." After that, he worked steadily in television and occasionally in films, including "Irma La Douce," "The Apple Dumpling Gang" and "Lonely Are the Brave." He appeared on Broadway in "Under the Yum Yum Tree" in 1964 and "The Paisley Convertible" in 1967.

Before taking up directing duties for the comedy "Blossom," he directed several episodes of the ABC mini-series "Rich Man, Poor Man" in the 1970's. He was also the host of the public television series "Once Upon a Classic" in the late 1970's.

This year, he began an experimental hormone-treatment program at the University of California-Los Angeles, Medical Center. He had already been fighting cancer for a year.

In March 1981, Mr. Bixby's 6-year-old son, Christopher, died of a throat infection. Mr. Bixby's former wife, the actress Brenda Benet, comitted suicide less than a year later.

He is survived by his second wife, Judith Kliban, whom he married on Oct. 3.
