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).

Authors: Kitajima K, Nakajo M, Kaida H, Minamimoto R, Hirata K, Tsurusaki M, Doi H, Ueno Y, Sofue K, Tamaki Y, Yamakado K Abstract Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) integrated with 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) is a useful tool for acquisition of both glucose metabolism and anatomic imaging data, as only a single device and one diagnostic session is required, thus opening a new field in clinical oncologic imaging. FDG-PET/CT has been successfully used for initial staging, restaging, assessment of early treatment response, evaluation of metastatic disease response, and prognostication...

Authors: Hackenbroch C, Riesner HJ, Lang P, Stuby F, Beer M, Friemert B, Palm HG, AG Becken III Abstract Dual energy computed tomography (DECT) is a constantly evolving technology, which opens up new diagnostic possibilities. It is particularly valuable for musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging. Due to the lack of recognition and availability of dual energy scanners, routine use is only established in a few centres. The intention of this review is to show the possibilities and fields of applications of the DECT in MSK imaging, as well as to describe technical principles and typical indications. We mainly focus on the use o...

Publication date: Available online 26 November 2017 Source:Mechanics of Materials Author(s): Shahed Rezaei, Mostafa Arghavani, Stephan Wulfinghoff, Nathan C. Kruppe, Tobias Brögelmann, Stefanie Reese, Kirsten Bobzin The mechanical behavior of coating systems is studied by means of a novel numerical modeling approach. The damage and fracture evolution within the coating system are modeled employing cohesive zone (CZ) regions in addition to an elasto-plastic model. The focus of this paper is on hard coatings such as (Cr,Al)N deposited by the combination of the direct current magnetron sputtering (dcMS) and the high pow...

Until now, several remedial measures have been exploited to overcome microfouling, amongst them nanoparticles play a superior role. Currently, green synthesized nanoparticles have been centered owing to its eco-friendly, cost effectively and non-toxic nature which has also increased its industrial applications (biomedicine, food and textile). In ...

In this study we have synthesized a high surface area magnetic graphene oxide (MGO) impregnated with α-Fe2O3 for the removal of a toxic textile azodye Eriochrome Black T (EBT). MGO was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive analysis of X-rays (EDAX), fourier transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman, Superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) and Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET) surface area analyzer. Batch adsorption of EBT with MGO was studied using various isotherms and it was found to follow Langmuir monolayer...

Mutton bone derived hydroxyapatite (MBHAp) was further utilized as a photocatalyst support to host titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles. TiO2 nanoparticles were incorporated over MBHAp support by simple sol-gel route. MBHAp support and MBHAp supported TiO2 nanoparticles (MBHAp-T nan...
