In December 1997, a NASA rocket flew from Svalbard (Spitzbergen) carrying a scientific application computer designed at the Space Science Centre, University of Sussex. The real time science measurements performed by this board is an auto-correlation function (ACF) processing of particle count pulses as a means of studying processes occurring in near Earth(More)
Duplex ultrasound was used to assess the vascular status and predict the angiographic findings in 3 patients with Takayasu's arteritis. The most striking sonographic feature was the presence of concentric arterial wall thickening. Using pulsed Doppler, stenotic lesions were quantified, occlusive lesions were identified and collateral circulation was(More)

In a group of 12 normal-weight, normotensive, nondiabetic adult females, the intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) to creatine ratio of the soleus muscle was determined using localized (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) and related to skeletal muscle blood (and oxygen) supply (as assessed by near infrared spectroscopy [NIRS] of the forearm). A(More)
The work of the Space Science Centre at the University of Sussex in the development of intelligent space plasma instruments is presented here. Previously the Centre has included various intelligent techniques within space instruments flown on a number of space missions. A neural network was included in the SPREE instruments flown on Shuttle flights STS-46(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomography scan (CTs), more recently magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are often used to assess the gastrointestinal tract in patients complaining of abdominal pain. We aim to determine the strength of agreement among abdominal imaging, endoscopic and histologic findings. METHODS Retrospective chart review of pediatric patients who(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about the long-term mortality and causes of death after first psychiatric admission. METHOD A consecutive series of 87 patients admitted for the first time from a strictly defined catchment area to Saxondale Hospital, Nottinghamshire, who were discharged in 1974 and 1975, were traced in 1992 to either their general practitioner(More)
