Ultrasound yields low sensitivity in detecting genitourinary anomalie
Researchers from Harvard Medical School looked at more than 2,200 children with febrile urinary tract infection and found that renal and bladder ultrasound was not a reliable tool for detecting possible genitourinary abnormalities. The AAP recommends that voiding cystourethrogram be conducted only if renal and bladder ultrasound shows anomalies. The findings, published in the journal Pediatrics, support the need to consider both screening methods as complementary, researchers said.

Researchers Can Receive Up to $35,000 Annually to Help Repay
The 2013 application cycle for the National Institutes of Health's Loan Repay-
ment Programs (LRPs) is now open. The LRPs repay the outstanding
student loans of researchers who are or will be conducting nonprofit bio-
medical or behavioral research. Opportunities are available in five research
areas--clinical, pediatric, health disparities, contraception and infertility and
clinical research for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. New LRP
contracts are awarded for a two-year period and repay up to $35,000 of quali-
fied educational debt annually. Tax offsets also are provided as additional
benefits. Participants may apply for competitive renewals, which are issued
for one or two years. Undergraduate, graduate, medical school, and other
health professional school loans qualify for repayment. An NIH grant or other
NIH funding is not required to apply for or participate in the LRPs. Information
can be found at http://www.lrp.nih.gov.
