We present a new stereoscopic compositing technique that combines volumetric output from several stereo camera rigs. Unlike previous multi-rigging techniques, our approach does not require objects rendered with different stereo parameters to be clearly separable to prevent visual discontinuities. We accomplished that by casting not straight rays (aligned(More)
Microalbuminuria has been established as a marker strongly predictive of diabetic nephropathy. The appearance of microalbuminuria (30-150 micrograms/min) is considered to herald incipient nephropathy, and the progression to clinical proteinuria (greater than 200 mg/24 h) is believed to reflect a shift from reversible to irreversible renal damage in diabetic(More)
BACKGROUND An increasing number of women are candidates for nipple preservation with mastectomy. It is unclear how previous breast surgery impacts nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction. METHODS A single-institution retrospective review was performed between June of 2007 and June of 2013. RESULTS Four hundred forty-four patients(More)
A novel enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA [Dialbumin]) for rapid office measurement of microalbuminuria was evaluated and its performance compared with that of a commercially available radioimmunoassay (double-antibody albumin). Urine samples containing between 0.75 and 1800 micrograms/ml of albumin were obtained from 31 diabetic patients and assayed(More)
1. We examined the effect of the alpha-glucosidase inhibitor acarbose on urinary albumin excretion (UAE) in streptozotocin diabetic rats. 2. Treatment with acarbose for 8 weeks after induction of diabetes prevented the significant increase in UAE observed in untreated diabetic rats relative to nondiabetic controls. 3. Acarbose significantly reduced(More)
Monoclonal antibodies that specifically recognize non-enzymatically glycated epitopes residing in albumin were used to measure levels of glycated albumin in the plasma of control and streptozotocin diabetic rats. Standard or sample was incubated with monoclonal antibody immobilized onto preactivated tubes, and binding was detected with enzyme-conjugated(More)
The number of theater screens domestically that are equipped for digital 3D exhibition is currently only about one quarter of the total number that are reached by an animated feature film in wide release. Any such film could not ignore the aesthetic demands particular to 2D exhibition on a statistical basis alone. However, the cost and effort of producing a(More)
