The ability to fuse (or merge) data sets from SPECT and coincidence nuclear medicine scans with computed tomographic images combines physiologic information from the former method with the superior anatomic resolution of the latter technique. In many cases, this allows more definitive diagnosis than can be obtained by simple visual comparison of nuclear(More)
Novel poly(dl-lactide-co-glycolide) microparticles for oral vaccine delivery were formulated using the enteric polymers Eudragit L100-55 and carboxymethylethylcellulose (CMEC) as stabilisers. To serve as a control, microparticles were also produced using the conventional PVA surfactant. In all three cases the antigen, ovalbumin (OVA)-loaded microparticles(More)
Settlements near the Semipalatinsk Test Site (SNTS) in northeastern Kazakhstan were exposed to radioactive fallout during 1949-1962. Thyroid disease prevalence among 2994 residents of eight villages was ascertained by ultrasound screening. Malignancy was determined by cytopathology. Individual thyroid doses from external and internal radiation sources were(More)
A 37-year-old woman was seen for recurrent papillary carcinoma of the thyroid after thyroidectomy. After repeated surgery and I-131 therapy, follow-up I-131 scanning and thyroglobulin levels were negative. Subsequent I-131 surveillance, however, demonstrated bilateral breast uptake. A biopsy taken of this area in the right breast proved that the increased(More)

We report the second phase of a study using an online Delphi method to address these issues. In the first phase, we focused on criteria for language disorder. Here we consider terminology. (More)
In the United Kingdom, multidisciplinary teams within the National Health Service (NHS) usually manage children and adolescents with disorders of hyperactivity. These multidisciplinary teams do not routinely include speech and language therapists (SLTs), and therefore speech and language therapy services for children and adolescents with disorders of(More)
