[en] Image-guided sternal biopsy may be technically daunting given the immediately subjacent critical structures. There is a paucity of literature describing technique, safety, and efficacy. This study aims to quantify the diagnostic yield and safety of image-guided sternal biopsies. Secondary aims include (1) describing the preferred approach/technique and (2) identifying imaging features and disease entities associated with higher and lower diagnostic yields. A retrospective review of 50 image-guided sternal biopsies performed at two quaternary care centers from 2000 to 2019 was performed. Recorded lesion-related variables included as follows: location, density, extraosseous extension, and size. Recorded variables from electronic medical records included as follows: patient demographics, histologic or microbiological diagnosis, and complications. Recorded technique-related variables included as follows: needle obliquity, type, and gauge; biopsy core number and length; and modality. Of the 50 biopsies, 88.0% resulted in a definitive histologic diagnosis. Six biopsies were non-diagnostic. The majority of biopsies were performed under computed tomography (88.0%), followed by ultrasound (12.0%). Tumor was the most common biopsy indication (90.0%), followed by infection (10.0%). Of the diagnostic biopsies indicated for tumor, 88.9% were malignant. Seventy-four percent of the lesions were predominantly lytic. Fifty percent of lesions had extraosseous extension. Lesion locations were as follows: manubrium (48.0%), sternal body (48.0%), and sternomanubrial joint (4.0%). No minor or major, acute, or delayed procedure-related complications were encountered. Image-guided sternal biopsy is an efficacious and safe method of obtaining a definitive histologic diagnosis regardless of lesion-specific features or location.

[en] RTE is the mainspring in enhancing energy transition and developing renewable energy in France. To further knowledge on the subject, RTE publishes a detailed inventory of existing and projected wind and photovoltaic installations. This vast overview was achieved with the help of ENEDIS (ERDF), SER (Association of renewable energy industrialists), and ORE Agency (Power network operators). The outstanding facts of this 24. edition of the renewable electricity synthesis are: 50% of renewable energy production capacity are from solar or wind origin. Solar and wind parks power reached almost 28 GW by December 31, 2020. With more than 25.7 GW of installed power, hydroelectricity remains the first renewable energy source in France. The bio-energy power generation park exceeds now 2.1 GW. All sources included, the renewable energy sources have grown by 637 MW during the last quarter 2020, reaching 55.9 GW at December 31, 2020. Power distribution systems are continuously evolving in order to meet the 40% renewable electricity production goal by 2030.
[en] After a synthesis of the 4. quarter 2020 news and a focus on the implementation of the French solar energy development plan 'PlaceAuSoleil', this publication presents in a series of graphs the situation of photovoltaic energy development in France and in the whole world: evolution of the world's photovoltaic park (new and cumulated capacities), world comparison of production costs of new power generation capacities, photovoltaic power generation in France (photovoltaic share in the French power consumption, new connected capacities per surface size and for self-consumption, evolution of connected capacities rate, self-consumption market trend, residential market analysis and feed-in tariffs per surface size, pending projects, evolution of feed-in tariffs in continental France, extra public burdens induced by new connections with respect to surface size.
[en] Epithelial ovarian cancers (EOC) can be divided into type I and type II according to etiology and prognosis. Accurate subtype differentiation can substantially impact patient management. In this study, we aimed to construct an MR image–based radiomics model to differentiate between type I and type II EOC. In this multicenter retrospective study, a total of 294 EOC patients from January 2010 to February 2019 were enrolled. Quantitative MR imaging features were extracted from the following axial sequences: T2WI FS, DWI, ADC, and CE-T1WI. A combined model was constructed based on the combination of these four MR sequences. The diagnostic performance was evaluated by ROC-AUC. In addition, an occlusion test was carried out to identify the most critical region for EOC differentiation. The combined radiomics model exhibited superior diagnostic capability over all four single-parametric radiomics models, both in internal and external validation cohorts (AUC of 0.806 and 0.847, respectively). The occlusion test revealed that the most critical region for differential diagnosis was the border zone between the solid and cystic components, or the less compact areas of solid component on direct visual inspection. MR image–based radiomics modeling can differentiate between type I and type II EOC and identify the most critical region for differential diagnosis.
[en] Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 health crisis, Orano has implemented a set of measures to ensure both the health of its employees and the continuity of its customers' businesses, in compliance with the directives of national and international health authorities. At the reporting date of the financial statements, the only significant disruptions related to Covid-19 concern the group's mining activities. The Cigar Lake mine operated by Cameco and the McClean Lake mineral processing plant in Canada, which were stopped for the first time at the end of March with a resumption of production in September, were again phased out at the end of December in view of the development of the local health situation. No contract termination with customers or suppliers was noted due to the pandemic. One-off agreements have been negotiated with certain customers in order to reorganize deliveries beyond 2020 without prejudice to the parties. While the Covid-19 crisis does not affect the value of the group's industrial assets, it has severely disrupted activities, particularly in the Mining and Back End sectors. Despite these uncertainties and thanks in particular to the measures implemented, the group achieved an EBITDA rate of 25.3%, an improvement of +1.5 point compared to 2019. Activity preserved and operational performance improved despite Covid: - Order intake of Euros 1.9 billion and no impact of the crisis on the backlog; - Revenue down by -2.5% (bps) compared to 2019 due to production stoppages and postponements of activities, in connection with the pandemic; - EBITDA of Euros 931 million compared to Euros 900 million in 2019 (rate up to 25.3% compared to 23.8% in 2019). Positive net cash flow and improved liquidity: - Net cash flow of +Euros 144 million (compared to +Euros 219 million in 2019) and maintenance of a coverage rate of 100% of end-of-life cycle liabilities; - Net debt down to Euros 2.15 billion. Net income attributable to owners of the parent impacted by the health crisis: - Adjusted net income attributable to owners of the parent improved at -Euros 91 million (compared with -Euros 145 million in 2019) but impacted by the Covid and an additional end-of-life cycle provision; - Net income attributable to owners of the parent down to -Euros 70 million (compared to +Euros 408 million in 2019) reflecting the same effects and a lower performance of the financial markets in 2020. Financial outlook for 2021: - A recovery in revenue growth; - Consolidation of EBITDA rate between 23% and 26%; - Continuing positive net cash flow.
