Parasitic determinants of serum retinol concentrations were studied in 159 preschool (0.25-5.1 y) and 695 primary school (9.2-17 y) children in western Kenya. Mean serum retinol was 0.63 micromol/L in preschool and 0.94 micromol/L in primary school children; 62% and 24%, respectively, had serum retinol < 0.70 micromol/L. Serum retinol was lower in boys than(More)
A new method for radiation-free management of infantile clavicular fractures is presented. Forty-nine infants with clavicular fractures were examined radiologically and sonographically by independent examiners. The two imaging techniques were compared with regard to practicability, diagnostic results, and assessment of the healing process. The paired t-test(More)

The DAMASCOS project aims at closing the gap between consumer behaviour and producer by improved information flow and demand prediction in the sales and distribution(More)
In a prospective study we tested the possibility to differentiate myocardial tissue by means of the quantitative texture analysis of two-dimensional echocardiographic images. 12 patients with a bioptically ascertained myocarditis and 12 healthy patients of a control group were echocardiographically examined. The results demonstrated that the(More)
