OBJECTIVE To explore the biomechanical effects of rapid palatal expansion (RPE) on the craniofacial skeleton with cleft palate. DESIGN A finite element model of a patient's skull with cleft lip and palate (CLP) was generated using data from spiral computed tomographic (CT) scans. Finite elemental analysis (FEA) was performed to depict the physiological(More)
This study was designed to investigate the biomechanical effects of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) in the patient with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). A finite element model of a patient's craniofacial complex with UCLP was created using data from spiral computed tomographic (CT) scanning. A transversal displacement with a magnitude of 5mm was(More)
Recent years have seen exciting breakthroughs in biomedical sciences that are producing truly novel therapeutics for unmet patient needs. However, the pharmaceutical industry is also facing significant barriers in the form of pricing and reimbursement, continued patent expirations and challenging market dynamics. In this article, we have analyzed data from(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the biomechanical effects of maxillary protraction on the craniofacial skeleton in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) after alveolar bone graft (ABG) and resorption of ABG, thus to provide theoretical basis for the clinical application of maxillary protraction, which can improve the facial deformity of the UCLP(More)
Learning partial differential equations (LPDEs) from training data for particular tasks has been successfully applied to many image processing problems. In this paper, we propose a more effective LPDEs model for vector-valued image tasks. The PDEs are also formulated as a linear combination of fundamental differential invariants, but have several(More)
Dynamic model error and observation model error was the main factor to badly pollute the precision of orbit determination, especially in space based observation. Model error compensation technology was researched by designing semi-parametric orbit determination regression model. Stahel-Donoho Kernel estimator was applied to solve the semi-parametric model,(More)
OBJECTIVE Unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) patients frequently present with an asymmetry in the nasomaxillary complex and a maxillary hypoplasia. The aim of this study was to investigate biomechanic effects of asymmetric maxillary protraction in UCLP patients using finite element method. METHODS A finite element model of a UCLP patient's skull was(More)
The star sensor has been widely used as an important and accurate attitude measurement sensor in classical satellite attitude determination systems. This paper analyses the influence of star sensor's sampling frequency on attitude determination accuracy within an Extended Kalman filter (EKF). Simulations are used to validate the theoretical analysis and(More)
