Obesity and overweight can lead to a heart attack, stroke, or diabetes. Yet, there are other ways to determine someone ’s chances of developing a cardiometabolic health condition. According to a recentstudy presented at the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting, the way fat is distributed throughout the body can indicate someone ’s cardiometabolic risk. Study lead Miriam A. Bredella, MD, a radiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, and her colleagues evaluated 200 overweight and obese people who were the mean age of 37 and had similar BMI. The...

Authors: Saccheri P, Crivellato E, Toso F, Travan L Abstract An upward displacement of the odontoid process into the foramen magnum was observed in the skeletal remains of a young male unearthed from a 14th-17th century cemetery in the north-eastern Italy. Examination of skull bone vestiges and CT-SCAN analysis of the axis exhibited a clear-cut contact zone between the odontoid process and the anterior border of the foramen magnum. In addition, the odontoid process appeared backward deviated. Findings suggest a possible diagnosis of basilar impression/invagination. This anomalous contact may cause compression of ne...

Authors: Toneva D, Nikolova S, Georgiev I, Harizanov S, Zlatareva D, Hadjidekov V, Lazarov N Abstract The aim of the study is to measure the facial soft tissue thicknesses (STTs) in Bulgarians, to evaluate the relation of the STTs to the nutritional status, sex and bilateral asymmetry, and to examine the correlations between the separate STTs as well as between the STTs and body weight, height, and body mass index (BMI). In the present study, the facial STTs were measured on computed tomography scans of the head of Bulgarian adults. The STTs were measured at 7 midline and 9 bilateral landmarks. The measurements wer...

Publication date: 15 March 2018 Source:Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Volume 737 Author(s): Sana Dhaybi, Benoît Marsan A new colloidal route for the preparation of LiFe0.5Mn0.5PO4/C nanocomposite cathode material for lithium batteries is revealed. The method uses lithium dihydrogen phosphate (LiH2PO4), ferrous chloride (FeCl2) and manganese chloride(MnCl2) in stoichiometric amounts with N-methylimidazole (NMI) as the solvent and carbon source. The coating process is performed at 650 °C for 3 h under vacuum. Elemental analysis shows a carbon content of 3.71 wt%, rendering the material to exhibit ...
