In 1994, IBM began to reengineer its global supply chain. It wanted to achieve quick responsiveness to customers with minimal inventory. To support this effort, we developed an extended-enterprise supply-chain analysis tool, the Asset Management Tool (AMT). AMT integrates graphical process mod-eling, analytical performance optimization, simulation,(More)
This article describes the benefits and dental applications of a three-dimensional imaging technique known as cone beam volumetric tomography (CBVT). When compared to conventional medical CT scanners, CBVT is more accurate, requires less radiation, captures the maxilla and mandible in a single rotation of the X-ray source, and is cost-effective for(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this prospective study was to use cone-beam computed tomography to assess the dimensional changes of the upper airway in orthodontic patients with maxillary constriction treated by rapid maxillary expansion. METHODS Fourteen orthodontic patients (mean age, 12.9 years; range, 9.7-16 years) were recruited. The patients with posterior(More)
Patients with breast cancer (BC) undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) may experience metastatic relapse despite achieving a pathologic complete response. We analyzed patients with BC before and after NACT for disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in the bone marrow(BM); comprehensively characterized circulating tumor cells (CTCs), including stem cell–like(More)
A web-based training tool for interpreting dental radiographic images was developed at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee (UWM) and evaluated at Marquette University (MU) dental school. The tool provides a self-instructional environment that will simulate the teacher- student interaction in the instruction of the interpretation of dental diagnostic images(More)
The non-classical human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) molecule and its soluble forms exert multiple immune suppressive regulatory functions in malignancy and in stem cells contributing to immune escape mechanisms. HLA-G can be secreted as free soluble HLA-G molecules or via extracellular vesicles (EVs). Here we evaluated these soluble HLA-G forms as(More)
The authors present a case of a mandibular neurilemmoma discovered on routine radiographic examination of an asymptomatic young woman. The lesion was surgically removed and there was no radiographic evidence of recurrence. A review of the literature is presented and the differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of this benign neurogenic tumor are(More)
Segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia is a rare disorder that unilaterally affects the maxilla causing facial asymmetry and presenting with hypertrichosis and hypoplastic or missing teeth in the affected area. Lip clefting has only been reported in one other case. We report a case of segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia presenting with hypertrichosis of the(More)
The objective of this blinded study was to validate the use of cone beam computed tomography (C) for imaging of the canine maxillary dentoalveolar structures by comparing its diagnostic image quality with that of 64-multidetector row CT Sagittal slices of a tooth-bearing segment of the maxilla of a commercially purchased dog skull embedded in(More)
