We present the response pattern of intracranial event-related potentials (ERPs) recorded from depth-electrodes in the human amygdala (four patients) to faces or face parts encoding fearful, happy or neutral expressions. The amygdala showed increased amplitude ERPs (from 200 to 400 ms post-stimulus) in response to the eye region of the face compared to whole(More)
A case of focal inferior limb sensory-motor status epilepticus as the only manifestation of a multiple sclerosis (MS) relapse is described. To obtain evidence of the relationship between the seizures, the cortical plaque and the left foot motor area, an EEG-fMRI co-registration study was undertaken demonstrating that seizure-related BOLD signal(More)
Orthopantomograms (OPT) are used to assess the anatomical relationship between the inferior alveolar nerves (IAN) and the roots of third molars and the related risk of postextraction iatrogenic neurological lesions. When the risk is high, computed tomography (CT) or conebeam CT may be warranted. We investigated how dentists judged the need for CT from OPT(More)
This report demonstrates the association between the development of a nasopalatine duct cyst and implant surgery, involving 2 implants positioned 4 years after teeth extraction at a site unaffected by any prior local endodontic disease or radiolucency. The cyst was removed and the residual void was filled with deproteinized bovine bone. Two-year follow-up(More)
The Authors carried out a methodological study about the way of expressing in mIU/ml the antibody to HBV surface antigen (anti-HBs) titer. The results showed that Hollinger's formula seems to provide a good accuracy when enzyme immunoassay is employed (AUSAB EIA, Abbott). Moreover, moderate variations in the commercial anti-HBs kits studied (AUSAB, AUSAB(More)
This work proposes a methodology for non destructive testing (NDT) of reinforced concrete structures, using superficial magnetic fields and artificial neural networks, in order to identify the size and position of steel bars, embedded into the concrete. For the purposes of this paper, magnetic induction curves were obtained by using a finite element(More)
PURPOSE The new ASCO/CAP guidelines published in 2013 (AC2013) significantly modified the scoring criteria for HER2-FISH, introducing the most controversial change to the HER2-equivocal category. We retrospectively evaluated the impact of AC2013 in a cohort of consecutive invasive breast cancers (IBCs) analyzed with frontline dual-color FISH. METHODS 2788(More)
Neoadjuvant-chemotherapy (NAC) is considered the standard treatment for locally advanced breast carcinomas. Accurate assessment of disease response is fundamental to increase the chances of successful breast-conserving surgery and to avoid local recurrence. The purpose of this study was to compare contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) and(More)
