Chris Newsome and Reynel Hugnatan also finished in twin digits with a combined 33.Phoenix paraded a new import in Brandon Brown and almost hammered out a victory.But the Fuel Masters, who broke in Jeff Chan after acquiring the left-handed gunslinger from Rain or Shine just over a week ago, couldn’t hold on to a 77-62 lead late in the third quarter and went down for the fourth straight game after a 2-0 start.Brown, playing in lieu of the injured Eugene Phelps, finished with 38 points, while Chan wound up with 27 in his biggest offensive game of the season.ADVERTISEMENT PBA IMAGESShort on personnel but long in determination, Meralco rebounded from its first loss in the PBA Governors’ Cup on Friday night by pulling off what coach Norman Black feels is as the Bolts’ most satisfying win yet.“It was just an incredible effort from my guys tonight,” Black said after the Bolts—with three aces out of the roster—carved out a come-from-behind 107-104 win over Phoenix Petroleum to creep closer to a playoff berth at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao.ADVERTISEMENT “We had to deal with a lot of adversities in this game and we really needed to get a win, especially after coming off a loss,” added the multi-titled coach, who didn’t mind playing his remaining players extended minutes with an 18-day break coming their way.Garvo Lanete fired 14 points in the third period and finished with 27, effectively plugging the holes created by the absence of Baser Amer and Mike Tolomia as the Bolts completed a rally from as big as 15 points down to rise to 5-1.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Junior Tommi Avant shot a two-over par 74, while senior Drew Ison and freshman Tim Lim, who made is collegiate debut, recorded a 75 and 76, respectively.

New findings support more conservative use of ED neuroimaging for nonindex seizures

first_imgJul 18 2018Patients who go to the emergency department (ED) with seizures often undergo neuroimaging, usually CT scans. Such imaging in adults presenting with new onset (‘index’) seizures leads to a change in care for 9-17% of patients, but it’s unclear if such changes are made following imaging in the ED for seizures in adults with known seizure disorders (‘non-index’ seizures).In an Epilepsia study of 822 ED visits for non-index seizures, neuroimaging was performed in nearly half of all patients. Of these, 3% of imaging tests led to an acute change in patient management, 2% after excluding false positive scans. Acute head trauma, prolonged alteration of consciousness, and a focal neurological examination at presentation were associated with an increased yield of ED neuroimaging. Without any of these three clinical factors, the true positive yield of neuroimaging was zero.The findings support a more conservative use of ED neuroimaging for non-index seizures, based on clinical factors at the time of presentation.
