The isolated unilateral absence of a proximal pulmonary artery is a rare congenital lesion with a diverse clinical presentation. If the connecting ductus arteriosus closes after birth, the ipsilateral pulmonary artery will lose its source of blood supply, resulting in hypoplasia or obliteration of intrapulmonary vessels. Despite a seemingly benign early(More)
Dose rate benchmarks are required in the tiered approaches used to screen out benign exposure scenarios in radiological ecological risk assessment. Such screening benchmarks, namely the predicted no-effect dose rates (PNEDR), have been derived by applying, as far as possible, the European guidance developed for chemicals. To derive the ecosystem level (or(More)
A number of models are being used to assess the potential environmental impact of releases of radioactivity. These often use a tiered assessment structure whose first tier is designed to be highly conservative and simple to use. An aim of using this initial tier is to identify sites of negligible concern and to remove them from further consideration with a(More)
We present the case of a woman born with transposition of the great arteries, who was surgically repaired with the Mustard technique. Because of interatrial shunting, she was brought to the cardiac catheterization laboratory for device closure. Matrix-array 3D transesophageal echocardiography enabled visualization of both baffle leaks and demonstrated its(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormalities of coronary artery (CA) origins may be associated with sudden death. No data exist regarding the feasibility of routine echocardiographic imaging of CA in pediatrics. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine the feasibility of imaging CA origins during routine echocardiograms. METHODS One hundred randomly selected children without(More)
