Accurate and rapid diagnosis of these conditions helps in reducing related complications. Clinical assessment is often difficult due to(More)
ABSTRACT: The present paper is to investigate the combined effect of the free convective heat and mass transfer on the unsteady two-dimensional boundary layer flow over a stretching vertical plate in the presence of heat generation/absorption, and soret and dufour effects. The flow is subject to magnetic field normal to the plate. The governing nonlinear(More)
Disseminated cysticercosis is a rare form of cysticercosis in which the cysticerci spread throughout the body. We describe the case of a seven-year-old child with disseminated cysticercosis. He presented with a one month history of swelling of the whole body, unable to walk for one month and swelling of both eyes for 20 days. After extensive investigation(More)
Skull tumors comprise a wide variety of entities, ranging from chronic inflammatory disease to primary and secondary neoplasms. There is no valid incidence or data about the incidence of skull tumors in general. Primary malignant skull tumors are rare, with most articles reporting single cases. We would discuss some of the frequent tumors in this group and(More)
The radiological findings fulfilling the criteria of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) were reviewed. NF2 is a rare disease with few cutaneous but frequent, typical radiological findings in the central nervous system. The presenting symptom is most commonly hearing loss due to acoustic schwannomas, although symptoms emanating from other intracranial or tumors(More)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is often "one stop shop" for evaluating female pelvic masses that helps in diagnosis, staging, and restaging of these tumors. A pelvic mass can arise from any tissue present within the pelvis. Although most masses in the female pelvis arise from the reproductive organs, masses may also arise from the gastrointestinal tract,(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of orientation on the stiffness measurement by shear wave elastography (SWE) within a thyroid nodule. METHODS Forty-five patients with 50 thyroid nodules were enrolled in this study. After a short sonographic examination, SWE images were acquired in transverse and longitudinal orientations. Multiple elastograms of each(More)
Water samples were collected from three selected mangrove ecosystems of Kali Estuary west coast Karwar, on monthly basis and analyzed for various hydrographic parameters. The present work would give the recent information on the hydrographic condition of the mangrove ecosystem of Kali estuary. Surface water temperature varied from 27.4 to 32.07 °C and the(More)
