Test-Driven Development (TDD) is a software development practice that prescribes writing unit tests before writing implementation code. Recent studies have shown that TDD practices can significantly reduce the number of pre-release defects. However, most TDD research thus far has focused on new development. We investigate the adaptation of TDD-like(More)

Sonographic features of agenesis of the corpus callosum and its related intracranial abnormalities are described in four patients. A brief review of clinical, radiologic, and pathologic manifestations of agenesis of the corpus callosum is presented. Both agenesis of the corpus callosum and its potentially serious associated intracranial abnormalities can be(More)

The sonographic appearance of normal neonatal cerebral sulci may mimic that of significant intracranial pathology. An echogenic pseudolesion can be seen when a sulcus is imaged through its long axis. Criteria are discussed for the differentiation of this normal variant from true parenchymal lesions with their attendant serious clinical implications.
Failure of first trimester pregnancy termination is an uncommon, although potentially serious complication of attempted therapeutic abortion. We report our experience in four patients with unsuspected congenital uterine anomalies in whom attempted pregnancy termination procedures failed to completely ablate the products of conception. When dilatation and(More)
Quantitation of fetal parameters by prenatal so-nography enables the assessment of menstrual age and fetal development. Appropriate fetal growth can be surmised on the basis of sequential measurements, as well as the relative variation of parameters such as biparietal diameter (BPD), femur diaphysis length (FDL), abdominal circumference (AC 1, and head(More)
We show, through correlation of fetal, neonatal, and necropsy brain sonography, that the three-parallel-echogenic-line configuration classically thought to represent fetal lateral ventricular margins on high axial images are actually extraventricular, lying within cerebral white matter. Accurate sonographic identification of fetal hydrocephalus is essential(More)
In spite of the widespread use of obstetrical so-nography, the prenatal detection of presumed adrenal hemorrhage remains extremely un-Pathologic proof is ~ a r e. ~ , ~ Several authors have noted adrenal calcifications at birth and have speculated that they represent the se-quelae of prenatal adrenal hemorrhage. However, without pathologic proof,(More)
