By means of emission computed tomography (ECT), we used 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG) and 13N-ammonia (13NH3) as indicators of abnormalities in local cerebral glucose utilization (LCMRglc) and relative perfusion, respectively. The ECAT positron tomograph was used to scan normal control subject and 10 stroke patients at various times during recovery. In(More)
Patterns of local cerebral glucose utilization were measured with positron emission, computed tomography using the 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose method in 13 patients with Huntington's disease (HD), 15 subjects at risk for HD, and 40 normal control subjects. These data were compared with computed tomographic measures of cerebral atrophy, with age, and with(More)
A theoretical investigation of different electroneurogram recording techniques using electrode cuffs is presented. A new screened tripole arrangement is proposed with a higher inherent signal to interference ratio than the true tripole, which also allows the nulling of the residual electromyogram signal. The reduction in interference is small because the(More)
The reproducibility of ciprofloxacin estimations was investigated in duplicate samples of bronchial mucosa from patients undergoing fibreoptic bronchoscopy. At the time of biopsy, venous blood was collected from each patient. Between 3.5 and 5.0 h after dosing, penetration (%) into the mucosa was 162.13 (S.D. 19.77). The correlation coefficient (Pearson's)(More)
This article presents an experience report where we compare 8 years of experience of product related usability testing and evaluation with principles for software process improvement (SPI). In theory the product and the process views are often seen to be complementary, but studies of industry have demonstrated theopposite. Therefore,moreempirical studies(More)
CT and pluridirectional tomography are compared in their ability to show the extent of paranasal sinus tumors or benign aggressive processes. Thirty-one cases are reviewed; CT was superior to pluridirectional tomography in showing spreads of tumor to all clinically important areas, including the infratemporal fossa, nasopharynx, orbit, and intracranial(More)
Cerebral computer tomography is a recently introduced neuroradiologic procedure involving tomographic x-rays of horizontal brain sections. Although most adults undergo the procedure without anesthesia, children and uncooperative adults must be given general anesthesia for absolute immobility. Of 84 procedures under general anesthesia, 10 employed ketamine,(More)
Over a period of 1.5 years (July 1989-Jan. 1991), a total of 504 patients, 442 of them suffering from spinal cord injuries with subsequent voiding disorders, were investigated by ultrasonography of the genitourinary tract. Ultrasonography of the upper urinary tract as well as the bladder and prostate provided and accurate image of the pathomorphological(More)
