Chronic compression of the median nerve at the elbow has been described as resulting from a number of structures including the lacertus fibrosus. Symptoms of chronic compressive peripheral neuropathy consist predominantly of an achy feeling, paresthesias, numbness, and a sense of weakness or fatigue, with the onset being insidious and frequently without a(More)
The authors present a novel technique for large-field digital mammography. The instrument uses a mosaic of electronic digital imaging [charge coupled device (CCD)] arrays, novel area scanning, and a radiation exposure and scatter reducing mechanism. The imaging arrays are mounted on a carrier platform in a checker-board pattern mosaic. To fill in the gaps(More)
A digital mammography device uses a mosaic of electronic digital imaging arrays to scan an x-ray image. The mosaic of arrays is repositioned several times to expose different portions of the image, until the entire image is scanned. The data generated by the arrays during each exposure is stored in a computer. After the final exposure, the computer combines(More)
