OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy between computed tomography (CT) and frontal chest radiography in the diagnosis of malpositioned chest tubes (MCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS CT scans positive for MCT between March 2000 and March 2004 were reviewed. Two radiologists assessed for intra- and extrathoracic locations of MCT in CT(More)
The 3D-partner is a web tool to predict interacting partners and binding models of a query protein sequence through structure complexes and a new scoring function. 3D-partner first utilizes IMPALA to identify homologous structures (templates) of a query from a heterodimer profile library. The interacting-partner sequence profiles of these templates are then(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated whether the time from emergency room registration to appendectomy (ETA) would affect the incidence of perforation and postoperative complications in patients with acute appendicitis. METHODS Patients who underwent an appendectomy at the Ren-Ai branch of Taipei City Hospital between January 2010 and October 2012 were(More)
Functional virtual platforms have been popularly used to support system development without needing the actual hardware. While the emulation process is fast enough to model the behaviors of complex systems, performance assessment cannot be done accurately due to the lack of timing models for the simulated systems. To tackle the problem, we proposed a(More)
