BACKGROUND Sixteen-row multislice CT has great potential for use in vascular studies. The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of 16-row multislice CTA in detecting intracranial aneurysms compared with 2D-DSA and surgical findings. METHODS One hundred fifty-two consecutive patients were included in the study and successively underwent(More)
Metallic nanotubes represent a class of hollow nanostructures with unique catalytic properties. However, the wet-chemical synthesis of metallic nanotubes remains a substantial challenge, especially for those with dimensions below 50 nm. This communication describes a simultaneous alloying-etching strategy for the synthesis of Pt nanotubes with open ends by(More)
The sulfur in gasoline will convert to SO(2) after combustion under high temperature, which adversely affects human health and the environment. Membrane technique in particular pervaporation offers a number of potential advantages over conventional FCC gasoline desulfurization processes. The present study focuses on the performance enhancement of PDMS(More)
Near-infrared spectroscopy along with process control variables, such as integral of airflow rate and the integral of alkali addition rate can be used as the basis for the monitoring of key analyte concentrations on a fermentation process. Within this paper, sequential data fusion modeling is applied first, embracing both physical and chemical information.(More)
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively evaluate whether T2*-weighted imaging can be used to grade clear cell renal cell carcinomas (ccRCC) based on intratumoral susceptibility signals (ISSs). MATERIALS AND METHODS MR imaging from 37 patients with pathologically-proven ccRCCs was evaluated. ISSs on T2*WI were classified as linear or conglomerated linear structures(More)
For the large-scale commercial application of Pt-based catalysts, minimizing the usage of Pt while retaining the high catalytic activity is crucial. The fabrication of Pd@Pt core-shell structures, good control of surface atom arrangement, and the formation of an alloy structure with 3d transition metals have been approved as efficient approaches to address(More)
