The performances of two continuously monitoring mycobacterial culture systems-ESP Culture System II (ESP II; Trek Diagnostics, Inc. , Westlake, Ohio) and BACTEC MGIT 960 (BD Biosciences, Sparks, Md. )-were compared. In addition to both liquid media, all specimens were plated onto Middlebrook 7H11/7H11 selective agar. A total of 3, 151 specimens of all types(More)
BACKGROUND VTE is a common complication of hospitalization and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The use of appropriate thromboprophylaxis can significantly reduce the risk of VTE but remains underutilized. In England, a comprehensive approach to VTE prevention was launched in 2010.

In order to determine the in-situ shear strength of rock joints, large scale testing is required. However, this is both expensive and difficult to execute. One possible method to overcome this may be to use photogrammetry to capture large joint surface roughness in-situ and downscale it to replica samples, which could be sheared in laboratory. In this(More)
