The Healthcare Utilization Model by Andersen suggests that individual need characteristics influence utilization.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The large-conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) channel (BK(Ca), K(Ca)1.1) links membrane excitability with intracellular Ca(2+) signaling and plays important roles in smooth muscle contraction, neuronal firing, and neuroendocrine secretion. This study reports the characterization of a novel BK(Ca) channel blocker,(More)
We describe a form of damped wave process which appears to have considerable promise in early vision analysis. We demonstrate in particular its use in eliciting a version of the Symmetry Set-the locus of centres of circles bitangent to a curve. The wave process is a method of implementing the "Symmetry Transform" of an image, which we define and discuss(More)
