Telepsychiatry can be used in two kinds of psychiatric emergencies: one-time clinical events and public health situations associated with mass disaster. Emergency telepsychiatry delivered by videoconferencing has the potential to improve patient care in many settings. Although experience is limited, it has been found to be safe and effective, as well as(More)
A magnetic recoil spectrometer (MRS) has been built and successfully used at OMEGA for measurements of down-scattered neutrons (DS-n), from which an areal density in both warm-capsule and cryogenic-DT implosions have been inferred. Another MRS is currently being commissioned on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) for diagnosing low-yield(More)
Acute herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) carries significant morbidity and mortality even after early treatment with antiviral agents (7). As well as causing acute neurological disease, Herpes viruses are associated with relapsing--remitting (Varicella--Zoster, Epstein-Barr) and chronic (Rasmussen encephalitis) disease processes (1). A two-year-old girl(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients with implanted SynchroMed spinal infusion pumps (Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN) routinely undergo magnetic resonance imaging at our institution. In August 2008, Medtronic issued an urgent medical device correction report regarding several pumps. Because of the rare potential "for a delay in the return of proper drug infusion" and(More)
The bulk etch rate properties of NaOH/ethanol as a CR-39 nuclear track detector etchant were investigated. It was discovered that NaOH/ethanol is an aggressive bulk etchant that has a bulk etch rate greater than the standard NaOH solution etchant. The bulk etch rate properties of NaOH/ethanol were tested by etching CR-39 (polyallyl diglycol carbonate) in(More)
Cerebral cortical dysplasia is an uncommon pathological substrate of severe intractable childhood epilepsy, sometimes treated by hemispherectomy. Neuropathological findings include abnormal gyrus formation, loss of cortical lamination, unusual giant neurons and 'balloon cells' of indeterminate histogenesis similar in appearance to neoplastic gemistocytic(More)
Cartilaginous embolization of spinal vessels is a rare cause of spinal cord infarction. A 63-year-old woman developed sudden onset of painful, fatal paraparesis following a valsalva-like maneuver. Autopsy demonstrated recent nonhemorrhagic infarction of the caudal thoracic spinal cord secondary to complete occlusion of the anterior spinal artery by(More)
