OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine the interrater and intrarater reliability of spinal extension and flexion measurements using a skin-surface (Spinal Mouse; Idiag, Voletswil, Switzerland) instrument. METHODS Spinal curvature was measured during standing, full flexion, and full extension in 81 healthy children (10.6 +/- 1.7 years) by 3… (More)
Twenty-three patients with an arachnoid cyst in the frontal part of the temporal bone, which produced exopthtalmos, were evaluated with CT and MRI. The majority of the patients had the peak of the bowing of the bony orbit wall in the posterior third (20/23) and only three in the middle. Arachnoid cyst are classified as small (13/23), medium (5/23) or large… (More)
The healthcare sector globally is confronted with increasing internal and external pressures that urge for a radical reform of health systems' status quo.

This is… (More)
In marine transportations it is important to control effectively the boarding and debarkation of passengers and vehicles, as well as to effectively monitor the cargo. These procedures are usually handled using conventional ways such as barcode-based tickets and scanners. This technology, although used widely, has significant drawbacks and is outdated. In… (More)
We assess the role of ultrasonography (US) in the evaluation of retinal detachment in patients with uveal melanomas, in correlation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. Twenty-six patients (13♂ and 13♀) with uveal melanomas underwent MRI and US examination. The signal intensity of the tumors and retinal detachments were depicted using MRI. The… (More)
Cavernous hemangioma is the most common intraorbital lesion in adults. The aim of our study was to evaluate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) characteristics of cavernous hemangioma and their role in the differential diagnosis of orbital tumors. Eight patients with orbital cavernous hemangiomas, five women and three men with a mean… (More)
Segmental spinal dysgenesis is a rare spinal congenital abnormality in which a segment of the spine and spinal cord fails to develop completely. This entity is often associated with other congenital anomalies such as multiple vertebral segmentation defects, congenital vertebral displacement, tethered cord, hydromyelia and syringohydromyelia.
