OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the use of a staged procedure that involved femoral artery catheterization, classic cesarean section delivery, and uterine and placental embolization before hysterectomy for placenta accreta. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a cohort study of retrospective and prospective data from cases of histologically(More)
The Newton MessagePad Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) is the first in a class of devices distinguished by their pen-based user interface, communications capability, small size, and low cost. A PDA operating system needs to support the simultaneous demands of user interface, applications, and communications. It must operate in an environment that has little(More)
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has deployed a 43-megapixel multi-panel immersive environment, La Cueva Grande (LCG), to be used in visualizing the terabytes of data produced by simulations. This paper briefly discusses some of the technical challenges encountered and overcome during the deployment of a 43-million pixel immersive visualization(More)
OBJECTIVE Sensitive, objective, and easily applied methods for evaluating disease progression and response to therapy are needed for clinical trials in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). In this study, we evaluated whether electrical impedance myography (EIM) could serve this purpose. METHODS In this nonblinded study, 36 boys with DMD and 29 age-similar(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to understand the alteration in the anisotropic, or direction dependent, character of muscle as measured by electrical impedance myography (EIM) in subjects with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and its potential to serve as a biomarker of disease status. METHODS Thirty-six boys with DMD and 27 healthy controls were measured with EIM,(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed changes in quantitative muscle ultrasound data in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and healthy controls to determine whether ultrasound can serve as a biomarker of disease progression. Two approaches were used: gray scale level (GSL), measured from the ultrasound image, and quantitative backscatter analysis (QBA), measured(More)
