Can you explain why a test with 95% sensitivity might identify only 1% of affected people in the general population? The visual approach in this article should make the reason clearer I first encountered sensitivity and specificity in medical school. That is, I remember my eyes glazing over on being told that " sensitivity = TP/TP+FN, where TP is the number(More)
The objective of this study is to find a correlation between the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) geometric parameters, wall stress shear (WSS), abdominal flow patterns, intraluminal thrombus (ILT), and AAA arterial wall rupture using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Real AAA 3D models were created by three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of in vivo(More)
A study of the characteristics of a novel photocatalyst indicated that it consisted of 17.3 nm nano size (average) TiO2 in the anatase phase and porous Fe2O3. SEM results revealed that nano size TiO2 was uniformly deposited onto the surface of Fe2O3 to form a bulk photocatalyst, as TiO2/Fe2O3. The porous TiO2/Fe2O3 catalyst had a BET surface area of 168(More)
AIM It is controversial whether a high or low ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) is superior. The former allows an extended lymph node clearance whereas the latter preserves the distal vascular supply via the left colic artery (LCA). Apical lymph node dissection of the IMA (ALMA) harvests nodal tissue along the IMA proximal to the LCA whilst(More)
