Significant improvements have been made to the MODIS cloud mask (MOD35 and MYD35) for Collection 5 reprocessing and forward stream data production. Most of the modifications are realized for nighttime scenes where polar and oceanic regions will see marked improvement. For polar night scenes, two new spectral tests using the 7.2 μm water vapor absorption(More)
This study investigated the maximum number of collaterals that can be maintained by 1 axon during regeneration of rat peripheral nerve. The tibial nerve was transected, the proximal residual, with its variable number of axons, was fixed to the distal stump and served as the donor nerve. The number of myelinated axons was calculated after 12 weeks. An(More)
This study aims to estimate the effects of using a portion of a nerve trunk to repair itself and the injured nerve simultaneously. Proximal 1/2 median nerve served as donor nerve to repair the distal 1/2 median and whole ulnar nerve. Four months postoperation, the number of myelinated axons and nerve conduction velocities of the distal half median and ulnar(More)
Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare histioproliferative disorder that only occasionally involves the central nervous system. We present the diagnosis and treatment of five patients with intracranial RDD. The patients were preoperatively misdiagnosed as meningioma or eosinophilic granuloma. All five patients were treated by total or subtotal surgical(More)
Outgrowth of collateral sprouts from axons is a natural process that arises during development of and regeneration in the peripheral nervous system. Our previous study showed that if there are enough distal endoneurial tubes into which the proximal regenerative axons can grow, one axon can support three to four collaterals, at most. Here, the proximal half(More)
