Does Your Home Need a UPS?

As a user of advanced medical imaging equipment, I'm a believer in steady, reliable power for both my imaging equipment and computers. What is important to note, is that the batteries in UPS units eventually need to be replaced, maybe every 2 or 3 years.Currently, I use APC units, however, am impressed with some of the new players in this area, and currently am looking at CyberPower.

Home equipment also deserves to have the power supply regulated with a UPS unit. We have one for our TV and others for our office workstations.

Should my lung lesion be surgically removed?

BACKGROUND: it is common for people to have multiple primary lung cancers with ground-glass opacity. How should these lesions be managed medically?

RESULTS: this is a case report of a 62y M with 7 lesions in the lung field. High resolution CT was performed along with F-18 FDG PET/CT imaging.

CONCLUSION: the authors found that using FDG PET/CT in addition to high resolution CT helped determine the most appropriate surgical strategy in managing multifocal lung adenocarcinoma.
