— Within the scope of an European project a cluster of small cooperative robots capable of executing measurement and manipulation tasks is being developed. The robots are autonomous and have an overall dimension in the order of 1cm 3. We present in this paper briefly the concept of the robots, along with possible locomotion modules based on piezoelectric… (More)

DIFFUSION: weighted MRI (DWI) is a novel technique that analyzes the diffusion of water molecules in vivo. DWI has been used extensively in the central nervous system. Its use in body imaging is on the rise. In the prostate, it has been used in the evaluation of prostatic carcinoma. We present DWI findings in two patients of prostatic abscess.
Ultrasonography allows providers to noninvasively image an area of interest in real time without the risks of ionizing radiation or nephrotoxic contrast agents. This article present basic concepts of ultrasound along with new advances in ultrasound technology and their applications in small parts evaluation.
INTRODUCTION The specificity of the emergency medical act strongly manifests itself on account of a wide series of psycho-traumatizing factors augmented both by the vulnerable situation of the patient and the paroxysmal state of the act. Also, it has been recognized that the physical solicitation and distress levels are the highest among all medical… (More)
Pulmonary echinococcal hydatid cysts have been reported coexistent with cryptococcosis and other saprophytic mycosis on histopathological examination of the affected lung tissues [1-3]. Similar findings have not been reported in Fine needle aspiration (FNA) samples. The authors describe a similar case diagnosed on FNA material. A 53-year-old male, known… (More)
