BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Contrast enhancement of intracranial atherosclerotic plaques has recently been investigated using high field and high resolution MR imaging as a risk factor in the development of ischemic stroke. We studied the reliability of conventional MR imaging at 1.5T in evaluating intraplaque enhancement and its relationship with acute(More)
We present new radial velocity results for 178 stars in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal galaxy, of which at least 158 are probable Fornax members. We combine with previously published data to obtain a radial velocity sample with 209 stars, of which at least 179 are probable Fornax members. We detect the hint of rotation about an axis near Fornax's morphological(More)
Little has been written about physicians' attitudes toward patient record requests. We had predicted that physicians would not welcome such requests and would respond to them defensively. Of the 280 physicians at a university affiliated medical center included in this study, 67 per cent thought that patients were motivated to ask for their hospital charts(More)
We present the first detection of the mean flux of the optical extragalactic background light (EBL) at 3000, 5500, and 8000Å. Diffuse foreground flux at these wavelengths comes from terrestrial airglow, dust– scattered sunlight (zodiacal light), and dust–scattered Galactic starlight (diffuse Galactic light). We have avoided the brightest of these,(More)
The dialysis exercise is a small group decision-making clinical simulation which has been completely successful as an educational technique. The success of the exercise stems from its ability to engage students cognitively and affectively while teaching problem solving skills. This complete learning package is presented, together with comments on our(More)
We correct errors in Bernstein, Freedman & Madore (2002abc), a series of papers in which we described observations of the optical extragalactic background light (EBL). These errors pertain to the measurement of zodiacal light, given in the second paper of this series. Making these corrections leads to a net decrease of 0.5(±0.6)% in our zodiacal light(More)
