We have analyzed all available data including birth certificates, maternity records, pediatric records, and pathology reports of spontaneous and induced abortions and newborn deaths to determine the frequency of congenital anomalies of the central nervous system. We found 76 infants (34 males, 39 females and 3 of undetermined sex) with CNS anomalies during(More)
We report results of a search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPS) with the silicon detectors of the CDMS II experiment. This blind analysis of 140.2 kg day of data taken between July 2007 and September 2008 revealed three WIMP-candidate events with a surface-event background estimate of 0.41(-0.08)(+0.20)(stat)(-0.24)(+0.28)(syst). Other known(More)
Astrophysical observations indicate that dark matter constitutes most of the mass in our universe, but its nature remains unknown. Over the past decade, the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS II) experiment has provided world-leading sensitivity for the direct detection of weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter. The final exposure of our(More)
We report results from a reanalysis of data from the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS II) experiment at the Soudan Underground Laboratory. Data taken between October 2006 and September 2008 using eight germanium detectors are reanalyzed with a lowered, 2 keV recoil-energy threshold, to give increased sensitivity to interactions from weakly interacting(More)
A search has been made for neutrinos from the hep reaction in the Sun and from the diffuse supernova neutrino background (DSNB) using data collected during the first operational phase of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, with an exposure of 0.65 ktons yr. For the hep neutrino search, two events are observed in the effective electron energy range of 14:3 MeV(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of color-Doppler velocimetry during the labor. 325 intrapartal measurements of the umbilical artery, fetal aorta, middle cerebral artery and arcuate arteries were performed in a group of 105 patients. The resistance index (RI) and pulsatility index (PI) were measured. During the active labor the RI and PI of the(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital sacrococcygeal teratoma is the most common germ cell tumor in infants and children. It usually is diagnosed at birth, is benign, and consists of fully differentiated mature tissues. Congenital sacrococcygeal teratomas (SCTs) also may contain immature tissues, most commonly of neural origin. The proportion of malignant teratomas(More)
Three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound plays an important role in obstetrics predominantly for assessing fetal anatomy. Presenting volume data in a standard anatomic orientation assists both ultrasonographers and pregnant patients to recognize anatomy more readily. Three-dimensional ultrasound is advantageous for the study of normal embryonic and/or fetal(More)
AIM To assess the ability of three-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography for improvement of antenatal detection of limb deformities. METHODS 347 patients were selected from a routine outpatient clinic or sent for supervision from other units because of suspected anomalies of fetal extremities. 3D ultrasound devices used in the study were Combison 530D and(More)
