OBJECTIVE To evaluate the applicability of Fourier analysis for assessment of ground reaction forces (GRFs) and differentiation between dogs with unilateral hind limb lameness caused by degenerative joint disease of the hip (DJD-H) and dogs without lameness. ANIMALS 37 dogs with or without unilateral DJD-H. PROCEDURES Data were obtained from other(More)
A two-year-old, male, neutered, domestic shorthair cat was presented after suspected trauma. Diaphragmatic rupture with concomitant displacement of the right kidney into the thorax was diagnosed using ultrasound and intravenous urography. Avulsion of the renal pedicle and diaphragmatic rupture were confirmed and treated surgically with excellent outcome.
Compressive sampling (CS) offers bandwidth, power, and memory size reduction compared to conventional (Nyquist) sampling. These are very attractive features for the design of modern complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors, cameras, and camera systems. However, very few integrated circuit (IC) designs based on CS exist because of the(More)
The concept of time-domain reference-ladder for the implementation of fully-digital flash-ADCs is proposed in this work. The complete reference ladder is implemented using only digital circuits. Based on this concept, a flash ADC is proposed and implemented in this work using digital circuits, one comparator and a customized sample-and-ramp circuit. An(More)
BACKGROUND Current recommendations for portal placement in laparoscopy are often imprecise. The aim of this study was to establish and evaluate a mapping system for portal placement during laparoscopic procedures in small animals. Sixty-four final-year veterinary students took part in this in papyro study. Descriptions of portal placements of two recent(More)
A 7-year-old Jack Russell Terrier with a history of minor trauma was presented for lameness of the left forelimb. Radiography and computed tomography demonstrated a localized radioulnar osteolytic lesion with cortical bone loss and enthesiophytes. Based on results of diagnostic imaging and histopathological examination, the final diagnosis was radioulnar(More)
Nowadays, sensors and Integrated Circuits (ICs) are present in all kind of applications, ranging from computers to portable devices, from automotive to biomedical applications. The demand on low power ICs is also increasing each year. But with CMOS technology scaling, it becomes difficult to design analog circuits such as high gain Operational Amplifiers(More)
A novel compressive sampling scheme suitable for highly scalable hardware implementation is presented. The prototype design is implemented in a 0.18μm standard CMOS technology and utilizes compressed acquisition to achieve high frame rates and maintain low power consumption. Specialized pixels, convenient for Comparator-Based Switched Capacitor readout(More)
