Background: We compared the sonographic characteristics of hepatic adenomas with pathologic findings. Methods: Information over 10 years was collected on 12 patients (six men, six women; mean age = 47 years) with surgically proven hepatic adenomas. Clinical data, sonographic features, and histopathologic findings were reviewed. Results: The tumors in males(More)
A novel adaptive fuzzy-neural sliding-mode controller with H(infinity) tracking performance for uncertain nonlinear systems is proposed to attenuate the effects caused by unmodeled dynamics, disturbances and approximate errors. Because of the advantages of fuzzy-neural systems, which can uniformly approximate nonlinear continuous functions to arbitrary(More)
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) (McKusick 259420) type III is usually recognized at birth because of short stature and deformities resulting from fractures in utero. Although those affected survive the neonatal period, late life-threatening complications may follow. Recently there has been increased promise for treatment with bisphosphonates, which can reduce(More)
The potential importance of CO2 derived from host tree respiration at night as a substrate for night time CO2 uptake during CAM was investigated in the subtropical and tropical epiphytic vine Hoya carnosa in a subtropical rainforest in north-eastern Taiwan. Individuals were examined within the canopies of host trees in open, exposed situations, as well as(More)
The environmental aging effect of doped graphene is investigated as a function of the organic doping species, humidity, and the number of graphene layers adjacent to the dopant by studies of the Raman spectroscopy, x-ray and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and electrical transport measurements. It(More)
