Coal mine methane (CMM) is a term given to the methane gas produced or emitted in association with coal mining activities either from the coal seam itself or from other gassy formations underground. The amount of CMM generated at a specific operation depends on the productivity of the coal mine, the gassiness of the coal seam and any underlying and(More)
The arterial tree of a Sprague-Dawley rat was casted and carefully mapped with the aim of comparing its network characteristics with those suggested by the classical model of an arterial tree. It is shown that if the tree is to be measured accurately, the concept of 'whole vessels' on which the classical model is based must be abandoned since such vessels(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine quantitatively the branching characteristics of the coronary arteries. Branching angles and vessel diameters were measured in a total of 175 arterial bifurcations in the coronary beds of rats, and the results are compared with those of 350 bifurcations in other parts of the cardiovascular system of the same species.(More)
A review of 2000 consecutive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain studies identified 18 (0.9%) patients with lesions that satisfied MRI criteria for cavernous haemangiomas. The clinical, computed tomography (CT) and MRI findings in 23 patients with probable cavernous haemangiomas were compared. Thirty-three lesions were identified with multiple lesions in(More)
There is an ever growing emergence in the popularity of patient-driven care. As this health and wellness model grows, inquiries into diet, lifestyle, and supplemental approaches will continue to become a focal point for the healthcare consumer. Because of this, the aim of this study is to determine the tolerability, and overall effectiveness of a(More)
Branching angles and branch diameters of the distributing vessels in the renal networks of rats were measured and the results are compared with data reported previously from the coronary network of the same species. Comparison is also made with what is known to be optimum on theoretical grounds to determine to what extent the branching characteristics of(More)
