Background: Although the original clinical description of fat embolism syndrome (FES) dates from 1873, the condition remains a diagnostic challenge for modern clinicians. The syndrome is described as a serious consequence of fat emboli producing a distinct pattern of clinical symptoms and signs. It is mainly associated with fractures of the long-bones and(More)
Pseudoaneurysm formation around the ankle area is a very rare complication of an anatomic region that is highly exposed to trauma. A review of the published medical data revealed the rarity of the condition. Pseudoaneurysms of the perforating branch of the peroneal artery account for only 8 in the published data, with 6 (75%) cases related to sprain injury(More)
In this study Y3Al5O12: Ce powder scintillator was evaluated for use in X-ray imaging detectors. This phosphor, also known as YAG: Ce scintillator or P-46 phosphor, is a non-hygroscopic, emitting green light with very short decay time. These properties are very attractive for X-ray imaging. Y3Al5O12: Ce powder was used to prepare various test screens(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the angular distribution of the light emitted from radiation-excited scintillators in medical imaging detectors. This distribution diverges from Lambert's cosine law and affects the light emission efficiency of scintillators, hence it also affects the dose burden to the patient. In the present study, the angular(More)
