The threat of smallpox as a biological weapon has spurred efforts to create stockpiles of vaccine for emergency preparedness. In lieu of preparing vaccine in animal skin (the original method), we cloned vaccinia virus (New York City Board of Health strain, Dryvax by plaque purification and amplified the clone in cell culture. The overarching goal was to(More)
30.1 INTRODUCTION Polycapillary and multichannel plate optics are both arrays of a large number of small hollow glass tubes and both depend on total reflection at the glass surface to transport X rays. The critical angle for borosilicate glass is approximately θ c ≈ mrad (1) which is 30 mrad (1.7°) for 1-keV photons and 1.5 mrad (0.086°) for 20-keV photons.(More)
Newborn screening (NBS) is a complex process that has high-stakes health implications and requires rapid and effective communication between many people and organizations. Currently, each NBS laboratory has its own method of reporting results to state programs, hospitals and individual providers, with wide variation in content and format. Pediatric care(More)
Todays most compelling virtual reality experiences shift the users viewpoint within the virtual environment based on input from a head-tracking system, giving a compelling sense of motion parallax. While this is straightforward for computer generated scenes, photographic VR content generally does not provide motion parallax in response to head motion. Even(More)
Human-Engine is an innovative new approach to 3D asset creation, using 4D scan data to create lifelike virtual humans, clothing or anything else you can put in front of a camera. Our goal is to bridge the gap between traditional video capture and existing CG technology by creating accurate scans of humans and objects in motion that combine the realism of(More)
This course surveys several practical techniques advanced by graphics and vision researchers for applications in cultural heritage, archeology, and art history. Topics include: efficient techniques for digital capture of heritage objects, appropriate uses in the heritage field, an end-to-end pipeline for processing archeological reconstructions (with(More)
Four-to six-week-old calves from a seasonal dairy herd in North Western Tasmania were presented for veterinary attention due to the occurrence of sudden deaths. Necropsy examination of one of the calves revealed several small pale foci of 1 cm diameter on the epicardium. Mortalities were found to be caused by monensin that was added to the milk diet as part(More)
Neonatal calves from a seasonal dairy herd in North Western Tasmania were presented for veterinary care due to mortalities and bleeding from multiple orifices. Necropsy examination revealed free blood throughout the parenchymatous organs, body cavities and connective tissues. There was no history of anticoagulant exposure, however, high quantities of(More)
