A new method of measuring the kinematic parameters of joints has been developed. This article describes the procedure, using tarsal joints as examples. The method uses the technique of computerized three-dimensional reconstruction from magnetic resonance images, taken at regular intervals throughout a foot's range of motion. From these reconstructions,(More)
PURPOSE To study the utility of a computer-assisted method of quantitating enhancing multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions and to correlate this quantitation with the type and duration of disease. METHODS Forty untreated patients with MS were studied. The patients had been classified clinically as having either relapsing-remitting (n = 27) or(More)
BACKGROUND The Sri Lankan Anti-Filariasis Campaign conducted 5 rounds of mass drug administration (MDA) with diethycarbamazine plus albendazole between 2002 and 2006. We now report results of a comprehensive surveillance program that assessed the lymphatic filariasis (LF) situation in Sri Lanka 6 years after cessation of MDA. METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of electrophysiological demyelination of sensory nerves is not routinely assessed in the evaluation of suspected chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Whether this can be useful is unknown. METHODS We compared, using surface recording techniques, in 19 patients with typical CIDP and 26 controls with distal large(More)
BACKGROUND Sri Lanka's Anti Filariasis Campaign distributed 5 rounds of mass drug administration (MDA with DEC plus albendazole) to all endemic regions in the country from 2002-2006. Post-MDA surveillance results have generally been encouraging. However, recent studies have documented low level persistence of Wuchereria bancrofti in Galle district based on(More)
Limitations to current long range weather radars include reduced coverage of the lower atmosphere, coarse cross range resolution and coarse temporal resolution due to the mechanical scanning. A proposed network of low cost, short range digital radars for monitoring hydrometeor phenomena is described and its potential benefit in providing lower atmospheric(More)
