PURPOSE To retrospectively determine at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging the prevalence of subchondral bone marrow edema beneath arthroscopically proved articular cartilage defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was performed in compliance with HIPAA regulations, and a waiver of informed consent was obtained from the institutional review board before the(More)
To correlate radiographic findings of osteoarthritis on axial knee radiographs with arthroscopic findings of articular cartilage degeneration within the patellofemoral joint in patients with chronic knee pain. The study group consisted of 104 patients with osteoarthritis of the patellofemoral joint and 30 patients of similar age with no osteoarthritis of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use the Kellgren-Lawrence, Ahlback, and Brandt grading scales to correlate radiographic grade of osteoarthritis with the actual degree of articular cartilage degeneration within the tibiofemoral joint in patients with chronic knee pain.

We develop techniques that make authenticated directories efficient and scalable toward the goal of managing tens of billions of objects in a single directory. Internet storage services have already realized this scale: Amazon's S3 contained more than 52 billion objects as of April 2009 [1]. Our contributions include defining on-disk, block-oriented data(More)
We present a storage management framework for Web 2.0 services that places users back in control of their data. Current Web services complicate data management due to data lock-in and lack usable protection mechanisms, which makes cross-service sharing risky. Our framework allows multiple Web services shared access to a single copy of data that resides on a(More)

Research by York University shows that less than one in four of those interviewed used hard data to inform their judgements of NHS trusts. Sources of soft information can be direct: based on first-hand experiences; and indirect: the(More)
