AIMS The main intention of this retrospective study was to investigate whether chronic illicit drug abuse, especially the intravenous use of opioids (heroin), could potentially trigger the development of myocardial fibrosis in drug addicts. DESIGN A retrospective case-control study was performed using myocardial tissue samples from both drug-related(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks and Radio Frequency Identification are two technologies that are being used together to monitor and identify objects and people. Their application may cover from a supermarket storage section to a forest monitoring process, having to face a diversity of problems within the scope of Computer Science and Engineering. The present work(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this work is to investigate and compare cardiac proton density (PD) weighted fast field echo (FFE) post-mortem magnetic resonance (PMMR) imaging with standard cardiac PMMR imaging (T1-weighted and T2-weighted turbo spin-echo (TSE)), postmortem CT (PMCT) as well as autopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two human cadavers sequentially(More)
We present a case of a postmortem finding of bone marrow edema in postmortem magnetic resonance imaging (PMMR) indirectly induced by a bullet, which barely missed the bone of a 92-year-old man found kneeling in front of his bed of a tidy apartment. Additionally, a selective postmortem computed tomography angiography (PMCTA) of the left leg was performed,(More)
Forensic ballistics is the study of bullet trajectory and consists of determining gunshot residue (GSR) to identify bullet holes. Among several highly sensitive methods, atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS) is employed to analyze GSR in the laboratory. However, it is sometimes necessary to identify bullet holes immediately at a crime scene. The purpose(More)
Operations research is consolidated as an important area of applied mathematics, having among its classical problems that of resources allocation. This paper presents the problem of tutor allocation in distance learning courses, using individual evaluation score criteria in order to maximize the total final score punctuation in the allocation. A model was(More)
Medizinische Behandlungsfehler sind ein weitreichendes Problem, welches nicht nur finanzielle, sondern auch rechtliche Konsequenzen für alle Involvierten nach sich zieht. In Österreich gibt es keine epidemiologischen Daten, welche sich mit dieser Problematik befassen. Am Department für Gerichtsmedizin in Wien wurden Daten von insgesamt 7,211 gerichtlichen(More)
