OBJECTIVE To compare the values of arterial spin-labeled (ASL) MRI and fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET in the diagnosis of behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS Partial least squares logistic regression was used to identify voxels with diagnostic value in cerebral blood flow (CBF) and cerebral metabolic(More)
The effect of Fresnel edge diffraction on mode loss and far-field beam quality is investigated for empty offaxis unstable resonators with rectangular mirrors. For the cases investigated, mode-loss separation and beam quality of the lowest-loss mode are maximized nonconcurrently when the optical axis intersects the small convex mirror near one of its corners(More)
Theoretical Fraunhofer diffraction patterns are presented for uniformly illuminated square apertures with noncentered square obscurations. The energy within a given subtended solid angle in the far field is calculated. It is shown that the cornered-off-axis obscuration provides much more far-field energy in a given spot size than the centered obscuration(More)
