These fuels have high uranium density that contributes to fission, and by tailoring the ratio of 10B/11B, can also act as an integrated burnable poison. Understanding the thermophysical and mechanical properties of uranium borides, for w...

The difference in methodology of measurements could be a possible explanation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the immediate effect of calf pump activity used in the functional methods on ultrasound-measured venous reflux parame...

This study highlight the case report of a 25-year-old male patient admitted to the hospital complaining about right submandibular region swelling for approximately 1 year. On clinical examination, he presented a painless lesion with rapid and progressive growth and soft consistency. The tomographic and ultrasound results showed a hypodense and circumscribed lesion with cystic appearance content, measuring 2.1  × 5.7 × 2.0 cm, with lymphadenomegaly unilateral of inflammatory appearance.

Actually, it is difficult for a traditional piezoelectric ultrasound transducer to recover from physical damage caused by sudden impact, accidental scratches, and fatigue fracture. As a promising ultrasound device, the optoacoustic transducer, the cole part of which is inorganic-polymer ...

ygordobil D Abstract Lung ultrasound is an easily available, reproducible examination tool, both in ambulatory and critically-ill patients, which is used to evaluate congestion status and to differentiate the etiology of dyspnea. In this review, we explain lung ultrasound technique, acquisition protocols and their interpretation, as well as the evidence that shows its effectiveness among stable and critically-ill patients. Lung ultrasound should be used as an add-on to traditional physical examination in order to give an accurate diagnosis and a rapid treatment to patients with pulmonary congestion. PMID: 318...

In the contexts of obstetric and abortion care, accurate dating is critical. Happily, better ultrasound dating continues to improve providers ’ ability to estimate gestational duration. Another approach to gestational dating is measuring fetal foot length directly, which is a routine procedure during pathologic examination of fetal specimens. Legal problems may arise when gestational dating based upon the fetal foot length is not concor dant with other gestational age estimates.
