One of the major goals of the NIH Blueprint Human Connectome Project was to map and quantify the white matter connections in the brain using diffusion tractography. Given the prevalence of complex white matter structures, the capability of resolving local white matter geometries with multiple crossings in the diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) data(More)
BACKGROUND Forces applied on oropharyngeal soft tissues by direct laryngoscopy may cause damage to the patients. The aim of this study was to measure the forces applied during the manoeuvres to achieve glottis visualization and tracheal intubation, comparing direct laryngoscopy and videolaryngoscopy in vivo. METHODS Thirty adult patients (ASA physical(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) remains the main predictor of restenosis rates and cardiovascular events following successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) despite the use of drug-eluting stents (DES). HbA1c <6.0% is considered an index of optimized metabolic control in patients with DM, but several studies are downsizing its role in the clinical(More)
The MGH-USC CONNECTOM MRI scanner housed at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is a major hardware innovation of the Human Connectome Project (HCP). The 3T CONNECTOM scanner is capable of producing a magnetic field gradient of up to 300 mT/m strength for in vivo human brain imaging, which greatly shortens the time spent on diffusion encoding, and(More)
