Comparison of dimensional accuracy of conventionally and digitally manufactured intracoronal restorations

ConclusionsWithin the limitations of this in vitro study, the conventional method yielded more accuracy than the 3D printing method, and no differences were found between the methods which used the 3D printer (groups CP and IP).

Exclusive: Obesity experts consider lawsuits over marketing they say could be harmful to childrenLeading obesity experts are considering litigation against the food industry in the light of emerging research suggesting that junk food marketing could hijack a child ’s brain.Neuromarketing is of growing interest to food companies. Fast food, soft drinks and snack companies increasingly interact with children through social media and online games. Some are beginning to probe further, gathering information through brain scans about how unconscious decisions are made to eat one snack rather than another and targeting peop...

Arm and hand amputees may soon have a prosthetic that lets them type, shake hands, and use a computer mouse—and they won't have to refinance their home to get one. Brain Robotics, a startup led by Bicheng Han, a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University, is developing an Electromyography (EMG)-controlled upper-limb robotic prosthesis that can be directly controlled using muscle signal. Where similar devices cost between $40,000 and $60,000, Brain Robotics plans to sell the device for around $3k-5k. "We want to help more people live the life they want where they couldn't before because a prosthetic was so expensive,&...

In this study, a polygon model is tetrahedralized by TetGen for the construction of the MCNPX geometry to be distortion-free. Then, dose estimation was successfully performed after converting the virtual model into an MCNPX input. A voxelized model was constructed for comparison purposes. The dose estimation functions of the two models were found to be similar, showing a similar amount of computing time by using the mesh tally option with 2e7 histories.

Discussion: Effective injury surveillance is critical for determining trainee BSI incidence and attrition, developing anticipated return to duty (RTD) timelines, and assessing long-term outcomes. BSI RTD timelines should account for gender, BSI grade/severity, anatomical location, and type of intervention. Well-defined RTD timelines would benefit administrative decision-making purposes, including whether to grant convalescent leave or enroll in the Warrior Training and Rehabilitation Program during BSI recovery. Enhanced management procedures may improve initial enlistment completion rates for trainees sustaining at least ...

(Natural News) According to President Trump’s longtime confidant and veteran political strategist Roger Stone, former CIA Director John Brennan will “die in a federal penitentiary” for his role in the perpetuation of the phony Trump-Russia collusion scandal. Stone’s comments came during an exclusive interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday morning. “John Brennan should...
