The proportion of unpigmented coat on the trunk was determined from photographs of 38 German Simmental and 627 German Holstein bulls distributed over three generations. All 665 animals were members of 18 Holstein and 3 Simmental half-sib families. A Bayesian estimation of heritability yielded a posterior mean of 0.88 and a standard error of 0.08. A(More)
The bioactivity, i.e., bone-bonding ability, of 26 glasses in the system Na2O-K2O-MgO-CaO-B2O3-P2O5-SiO2 was studied in vivo. This investigation of bioactivity was performed to establish the compositional dependence of bioactivity, and enabled a model to be developed that describes the relation between reactions in vivo and glass composition. Reactions in(More)
Viscosity-temperature dependence has been investigated for glasses in a system where bioactive compositions are found. A glass is called bioactive when living bone can bond to it. In this work, high-temperature microscopy was used to determine viscosity-temperature behaviour for 40 glasses in the system Na2O-K2O-MgO-CaO-B2O3-P2O5-SiO2. The silica content in(More)
Fibres were manufactured from bioactive glass 9-93 by melt spinning. The manufactured fibres were further characterized by measuring their mechanical properties. The tensile strength of 9-93 glass fibres with a diameter between 20 microm and 140 microm and the flexural strength of glass fibres with a diameter of 500-800 microm were measured. The tensile(More)
Fibers were manufactured from the bioactive glass 13-93 by melt spinning. The fibers were further characterized by measuring their tensile and flexural strength, and their in vitro performance was characterized by immersing them in simulated body fluid, which analyzed changes in their mass, their flexural strength, and surface reactions. The strength of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate two new methods of using computer-aided detection (CAD) system information for the detection of lung nodules on chest radiographs. We evaluated an interactive CAD application and an independent combination of radiologists and CAD scores. METHODS 300 posteroanterior and lateral digital chest radiographs were selected, including 111(More)
