There is widespread agreement that chronic pain develops from, and is maintained by, a combination of neurobiological, psychological, and social factors. Nevertheless, few comprehensive models have been proposed that present specific testable predictions about how these factors interact. We propose a vulnerability-diathesis-stress model of the pathogenesis(More)
We describe an algorithm, Vout = Integer ([2(12)-1/2(12 lambda)-1] V lambda in-1) + 1; lambda greater than 0 based upon Box-Cox transformations as an alternative to nonlinear electronic amplifiers to expand or compress high- or low-amplitude flow cytometer-derived signals. If the indexing parameter lambda less than 1, input channels in the high-amplitude(More)
Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar provides a means of obtaining high resolution three-dimensional images of objects on the sea floor. This paper describes a technique for forming images using interferometric sonar data. The technique is novel in the way it combines image co-registration and height estimation. Results of applying the technique to real(More)

CONTEXT Recent years have seen rising interest in initiatives that focus on public health improvement. This includes support for accreditation of public health departments-administered by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB)-and increasing expectations that health departments should use evidence-based programs, services, and policies (interventions)(More)
CONTEXT Clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) can help clinicians assess cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk and manage CVD risk factors by providing tailored assessments and treatment recommendations based on individual patient data. The goal of this systematic review was to examine the effectiveness of CDSSs in improving screening for CVD risk factors,(More)
