BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Various authors have developed criteria to classify MR imaging findings that suggest the possibility of multiple sclerosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the capacity of three sets of MR imaging criteria for predicting the conversion of isolated demyelinating syndromes to clinically definite multiple sclerosis.(More)
The 17 m diameter IACT MAGIC will be commissioned during this year. The control system of the telescope is distributed over a number of functional autonomous elements. CANbus is favored for the communication with the hardware. A central PC steers all these subsystems over Ethernet and allows a human operator full control over the telescope. Here we mainly(More)
The analysis of finite mixture models for exponential repeated data is considered. The mixture components correspond to different possible states of the statistical units. Dependency and variability of repeated data are taken into account through random effects. For each component, an exponential mixed model is thus defined. When considering parameter(More)
OBJECTIVE Treatment-resistant epilepsy (TRE) occurs in 20-30% of patients. The goal of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) in this group of patients, including adult and pediatric populations and several off-label indications. METHODS This is a retrospective review of 59 consecutive patients in whom 60 VNS(More)
In this paper, we consider the flow of an incompressible fluid in a deformable porous solid. We present a mathematical model using the framework offered by the theory of interacting continua. In its most general form, this framework provides a mechanism for capturing multiphase flow, deformation, chemical reactions and thermal processes, as well as(More)
