In this study a new reference value, "corrected vertebral dimension," is presented for vertebral height measurements. Of 68 females (age 18-88 years; mean 44.2 years) and 40 males (age 16-81 years; mean 55 years) the projected vertebral dimensions (T4-L5) were measured on lateral radiographs. In addition to this, the vertebra-to-film distances (VFD) were(More)
A particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm has been used in conjunction with a full-wave numerical code based on the method of moments (MoM) to design and optimize wire antennas. The PSO is a robust stochastic evolutionary numerical technique that is very effective in optimizing multidimensional problems. The goal of the present work is to design wire(More)
Sheet plastination is currently used to produce anatomical slices of different body structures, allowing one to study and teach their topography in an anatomically correct state. Correlation with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques gives more insight into their anatomy. Using two female cadaver pelvises CT and MRI were(More)
