Over recent years, high field MR scanners (3 T and above) have become increasingly widespread due to potential advantages such as higher signal-to-noise ratio. However, few examples of high resolution images covering the whole brain in reasonable acquisition times have been published to date and none have used fast spin echo (FSE), a sequence commonly(More)
Microstructural change associated with cortical bone remodeling has been extensively explored with 2D techniques. However, relatively little is known regarding the 3D dynamic microstructure of cortical bone. Therefore, we employed micro-CT imaging to investigate 3D remodeling-related change in the structure of cortical bone porosity across the human(More)
Collagen fiber orientation is one aspect of the microstructure of bone that influences its mechanical properties. While the spatial distribution of preferentially oriented collagen is hypothesized to reflect the effects of loading during the process of aging, its variability in a modern human sample is essentially unknown. In a large sample (n = 67) of(More)
In recent years there has been growing interest in the spatial properties of osteocytes (including density and morphology) and how these potentially relate to adaptation, disease and aging. This interest has, in part, arisen from the availability of increasingly high-resolution 3D imaging modalities such as synchrotron radiation (SR) micro-CT. As resolution(More)
Age-related bone loss and postmenopausal osteoporosis are due to a dysregulation of bone remodelling in which less bone is reformed than resorbed. This dysregulation of bone remodelling does not occur with equal strength in all bone regions. Loss of bone is more pronounced near the endocortical surface. This leads to thinning of the cortical wall proceeding(More)
This study was designed to investigate the relationship between traditional skeletal cephalometric measurement and Fourier analysis of the lateral soft-tissue profile. A random sample of 121 untreated subjects of European descent, with wide ranges of malocclusions and underlying facial patterns, was selected in the Orthodontic Unit at the University of(More)
'IBIS' is a set of computer programs concerned with the processing of electron micrographs, with particular emphasis on the requirements for structural analyses of biological macromolecules. The software is written in FORTRAN 77 and runs on Unix workstations. A description of the various functions and the implementation mode is given. Some examples(More)
Physician order entry is a key factor in improving the quality of healthcare, while simultaneously reducing its cost. This paper describes an editor, a database, and a run-time system for creating and executing highly customized, user modifiable, order entry templates. The system allows non-programmers to create new order entry templates rapidly. Over the(More)
This paper describes the security threats associated with 802.11 based Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) and outlines a comprehensive architecture for a Wireless Intrusion Protection System (WIPS). The AirDefense WIPS based on this architecture is currently used to monitor and protect tens of thousands of networks and over one million devices around the(More)
