PURPOSE The primary aim of the present study was to test the feasibility of predicting diagnostic errors in mammography by merging radiologists' gaze behavior and image characteristics. A secondary aim was to investigate group-based and personalized predictive models for radiologists of variable experience levels. METHODS The study was performed for the(More)
Sixty-four all-night sleep polygraphic recordings have been carried out in patients affected by Parkinson's syndrome, before and after treatment with an association of l-dopa plus a peripheral dopa-decarboxylase inhibitor. Without any drug, parkinsonian patients showed sleep disruption with frequent awakenings, reduction of total sleeping time and lessening(More)
The effects of chronic addiction to, and withdrawal from, opiates on sleep have been described in experimental animals, in human adults and infants born to addicted mothers. These sleep alterations are seen through the first weeks of life. Thirteen maternally addicted babies were studied. Sleep samples were recorded and scored within a few days following(More)
Small satellite systems enable whole new class of missions for navigation, communications, remote sensing and scientific research for both civilian and military purposes. As individual spacecraft are limited by the size, mass and power constraints, mass-produced small satellites in large constellations or clusters could be useful in many science missions(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of multi-user inter-satellite communications in a network of small satellites and design and implement of an optimum CDMA-based multiple access communication using Software Defined Radios. Inter-satellite links (ISL) enable small satellites to exchange information and share resources while reducing the traffic load to the(More)
Female rats were given different doses of methadone for the whole duration of pregnancy. The effects of methadone on birthweight and abstinence syndrome were studied from birth to maturation. Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) from onset to 90 days of age were studied with averaging and frequency analysis techniques. The intensity of the withdrawal syndrome was(More)
