Alzheimer’s patients sat alone in a small room in a psychiatric psychological treatment center, watching “Forrest Gump” for the umpteenth time. While the film is excellent, the facility filed insurance claims for “group counseling” each time the patients sat in front of the television to watch it.
In essence, health-care fraud is similar to fraud in every other industry: fraudsters with the means and opportunity benefit unjustly. Patients, payers, employers, retailers and manufacturers, and professionals, including pharmacists, are all examples of health-care crooks both within and outside the sector. (Healthcare fraud is also perpetrated by organized crime rings and computer hackers.)
The health-care industry differs from many others in that it has a large, alluring, and easy cash pile. National health spending in the United States reached $2.6 trillion in 2010, accounting for 17.9% of GDP, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The CMS expects U.S. health spending to increase 7.4% in 2014 as a result of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) significant coverage extensions, which would reach an estimated 22 million people. Health spending is expected to increase by 6.2 percent annually on average between 2015 and 2021.

Medical ultrasound (also called diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a medical imaging technique or a clinical use of ultrasound. Internal body components such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs are imaged using this technique. Its aim is often to determine the cause of a disease or to rule out pathology. Obstetric ultrasound is the technique of using ultrasound to examine pregnant women, and it was an early invention and application of clinical ultrasonography.
Ultrasound waves have frequencies that are greater than those that humans can hear (>20,000 Hz). Ultrasound images, also known as sonograms, are created by injecting ultrasound pulses into tissue with the help of a probe. Ultrasound pulses reverberate off tissues with varying reflection properties, which is captured and displayed as an image.
There are several different types of images that can be produced. A B-mode image (Brightness) shows the acoustic impedance of a two-dimensional cross-section of tissue and is the most common. Other forms may show blood flow, tissue motion over time, blood position, unique molecule presence, tissue stiffness, or the anatomy of a three-dimensional area.

On Main Campus, by appointment Monday through Friday, and on Centennial Campus, by appointment Monday through Wednesday, registered dietitians are available to provide nutrition counseling to current NC State students.
Student Health Services’ dietitians take a Health at Any Size ® approach to nutrition counseling. This definition implies that we value diversity of body shapes and sizes and that wellbeing is not determined by a number on a scale. Clients are advised to nourish their bodies with foods that promote physical and mental well-being, rather than focusing solely on weight or appearance.
At this time, all in-person sessions are canceled, but telehealth appointments are still open. Please keep in mind that when you check-in for your appointment, a new window will open with a zoom connection to access your appointment.

People with larger waists have a higher risk of premature cardiovascular disease and death than people with smaller waists or who held much of their weight around their hips and thighs, according to French physician Jean Vague, who discovered this more than 60 years ago. (a) Even after correcting for body mass index, long-term follow-up research revealed that so-called “abdominal obesity” was strongly correlated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and death (BMI).

The “apple-shaped” body type, which is more common in men, is caused by abdominal obesity. Women develop a “pear-shaped” body type by accumulating fat around their hips and thighs (although they may also develop a “apple-shaped” body type).
And women with a “normal weight” BMI of less than 25 were at risk if they carried more of their weight around their waist, according to the study: By comparing normal-weight women with waists of 35 inches or more to normal-weight women with waists of less than 35 inches, normal-weight women with waists of 35 inches or more had three times the chance of death from heart disease.
