Measurement of areal bone mineral density (aBMD) by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) has been shown to predict fracture risk. High-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) yields additional information about volumetric BMD (vBMD), microarchitecture, and strength that may increase understanding of fracture susceptibility.

Idiopathic osteoporosis (IOP) in premenopausal women is a poorly understood entity in which otherwise healthy women have low-trauma fracture or very low bone mineral density (BMD). In this study, we applied individual trabeculae segmentation (ITS)-based morphological analysis to high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) images of(More)
The data obtained from these studies suggest that continuous noise at high levels will produce an increase in arousal, as indicated by pupil size, and that there is a tendency toward adaptation. At lower noise levels the effect is, at most, transitory. This papillary change does not appear to mediate a change in visual acuity. Impact noise such as that used(More)
BACKGROUND In order to differentiate between a conductive hearing loss (CHL) and a sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) in the hearing-impaired individual, we compared thresholds to air conduction (AC) and bone conduction (BC) auditory stimulation. The presence of a gap between these thresholds (an air-bone gap) is taken as a sign of a CHL, whereas similar(More)
Introduction & Correlation analysis of low-frequency fluctuations is well established in fMRI as a method for determining functional connectivity, which in data collected independent of task, have been termed: resting-state networks [1] & Similar methods have been applied to optical imaging data [2]. & Here we report the correlation analysis of(More)
INTRODUCTION Provision of healthcare is considered a basic human right. Delivery and uptake is affected by many complex factors. Routine vaccinations are provided free of charge in Israel to all residents. The Palestinian Israeli Collaborative Research (PICR) group conducted research on vaccine impact at eight primary care facilities in east Jerusalem (EJ)(More)
