Molecular assays designed to provide bacterial identification and detection of resistance genes directly from positive blood cultures can significantly reduce the time to definitive results. This has the potential to improve patient management and antimicrobial stewardship. However, the extent of such an impact is yet to be fully assessed. We tested two(More)
Case Characteristics. An 11-month-old girl presented with fever and breathlessness for 5 days. Patient had respiratory distress with bilateral coarse crepitations. Chest radiograph revealed diffuse infiltrations in the right lung with thick walled cavities in mid and lower zone. Computed tomography showed multiple cystic spaces and emboli. Blood culture(More)
Polygons with holes must be handled in digital cartography, 2D and 3D modelling, image analysis and picture generation. The Dissassociative Area Model (DAM) described in this paper uses polygonal units of uncut space, termed primitive regions, in the representation of the geometric and topoiogical properties of a set of areal entities.
