Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies typically collapse data from many subjects, but brain functional organization varies between individuals. Here we establish that this individual variability is both robust and reliable, using data from the Human Connectome Project to demonstrate that functional connectivity profiles act as a 'fingerprint'(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare uterine artery embolization (UAE) versus myomectomy and hysterectomy with regard to ovarian function as measured by postprocedure follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels and symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-five patients were prospectively enrolled in the study: 33 patients who underwent UAE, seven who underwent(More)
Economic growth within countries varies sharply across decades. This paper examines one explanation for these sustained shifts in growth—changes in the national leader. We use deaths of leaders while in office as a source of exogenous variation in leadership, and ask whether these plausibly exogenous leadership transitions are associated with shifts in(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES To create and evaluate an educational video designed to increase breast cancer-related knowledge and screening behaviors among women who are deaf and use American Sign Language (ASL) as their preferred communication method. DESIGN A test-retest survey was used to determine retained knowledge following an intervention with an ASL breast(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) findings of spontaneous pneumomediastinum (PM) to determine whether MDCT can reliably differentiate spontaneous from secondary PM. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective clinical and chest MDCT analysis of all patients diagnosed with spontaneous PM over an 8-year period was performed.(More)
We demonstrate that electrocoagulation (EC) using iron electrodes can reduce arsenic below 10 μg/L in synthetic Bangladesh groundwater and in real groundwater from Bangladesh and Cambodia, while investigating the effect of operating parameters that are often overlooked, such as charge dosage rate. We measure arsenic removal performance over a larger range(More)
Generating tier 2 HIV-neutralizing antibody (nAb) responses by immunization remains a challenging problem, and the immunological barriers to induction of such responses with Env immunogens remain unclear. Here, some rhesus monkeys developed autologous tier 2 nAbs upon HIV Env trimer immunization (SOSIP.v5.2) whereas others did not. This was not because HIV(More)
Vascular infections present in a multitude of ways with computed tomography (CT) aiding in the diagnosis of many of the uncommon vascular infections, which are equally dangerous and carry severe life-threatening consequences if untreated from a delay in diagnosis. This pictorial review aims to discuss and illustrate the CT findings of the following vascular(More)
AIM To investigate the impact of treatments used to detoxify dental implants on the oxide layer morphology and to infer how changes in morphology created by these treatments may impact re-osseointegration of an implant. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pure titanium (cpTi) and the alloy Ti6Al4V were subjected to a series of chemical treatments and mechanical(More)
