Traditionally, satellite instruments that measure Earth-reflected solar radiation in the visible and near infrared wavelength regions have been calibrated for radiance responsivity in a two-step method. In the first step, the relative spectral response (RSR) of the instrument is determined using a nearly monochromatic light source such as a lamp-illuminated(More)
BACKGROUND During the treatment of severely injured patients, rehabilitation takes an important role. In this study we examined the present structures in acute care hospitals, which influence the process of rehabiliation. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data was captured in a questionnaire. The questions deal with the personal and structural situation of acute(More)
Im Rahmen der Schwerverletztenversorgung konnte durch das TraumaNetzwerk DGU® eine strukturierte Organisation der Akutkliniken erreicht werden. Da die Rehabilitation ein wichtiger Bestandteil des gesamten Behandlungskonzepts ist, sollte eine Vernetzung von beiden Behandlungsphasen erfolgen. Dementsprechend ist das Ziel der vorliegenden Analyse, eine(More)
The quality of medical education is an ongoing challenge due to the continuing changes of the health-care politics and general social conditions. At many German university hospitals the dominating picture is overfilled courses, lack of hands-on practice, reduced patient contact and the dull provision of theoretical, abstract knowledge. The reformed surgical(More)
The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on-board the first Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) completed its sensor level testing on December 2014. The JPSS-1 (J1) mission is scheduled to launch in December 2016, and will be very similar to the Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) mission. VIIRS instrument has 22 spectral bands(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of e-learning for reporting of x-ray-findings in a prospective, randomized trial was tested. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty advanced medical students were randomized into two groups. The test group practiced 4-6 hours with the newly developed software, the control group used conventional learning material. Afterwards, a test was(More)
Optical and electronic crosstalk in the Focal Plane Assemblies (FPAs) of satellite instruments degrades the radiometric quality of remote sensing data, and can be a major limitation to achieve performance quality needed for environmental and climate monitoring research. Correction algorithms for this effect have been developed, such as the one developed for(More)
