Publication date: Available online 19 October 2018Source: Journal of Sound and VibrationAuthor(s): Shanjun Liang, Tuo Liu, Fei Chen, Jie ZhuAbstractResonance based acoustic metamaterials and metasurfaces exhibit outstanding phase modulation capabilities with high transmission coefficient, but it is rather confined to the neighborhood of fundamental or harmonic resonant frequencies. Here we present the theoretically and experimentally study of the non-resonance based gradient index helical-structured metamaterial, which can modulate sound wavefront with near perfect transmission over a broad bandwidth. Taking advantage of t...

We report an interesting case of hepatic ACC in a young woman with clinical signs of virilization.A-21-year old Sundanese woman visited our endocrine clinic with progressive hirsutism over the face, body, and extremities starting 14 years previously. She had irregular, heavy periods when she was 7 years old. She also experienced pubertal development of her breasts. However, both menstrual cycle and breast development ceased when she was 8 years old. She noticed voice deepening and alopecia. Physical examination showed male-type alopecia and intense hirsutism. Tanner stage was 3 for breast tissue and 5 for pubic hair. There...

Publication date: Available online 19 October 2018Source: Journal of Molecular LiquidsAuthor(s): Jannatun Zia, Jyoti Kashyap, Ufana RiazAbstractThe present work reports for the first time ultrasound-assisted facile synthesis of stable polypyrrole/vanadium oxide (Ppy/V2O5) nanohybrids using various loadings of the conducting polymer. Infrared spectroscopy (IR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) investigations confirmed the formation of the nanohybrids via synergistic interaction between C of Ppy with O of V2O5. The loading of Ppy in the nanohybrids was found to be 15%, 30% and 45% respectively which was confirmed by...

Publication date: November 2018Source: Academic Radiology, Volume 25, Issue 11Author(s): Rossella Rella, Paolo Belli, Michela Giuliani, Enida Bufi, Giorgio Carlino, Pierluigi Rinaldi, Riccardo ManfrediAutomated breast ultrasonography (ABUS) is a new imaging technology for automatic breast scanning through ultrasound. It was first developed to overcome the limitation of operator dependency and lack of standardization and reproducibility of handheld ultrasound. ABUS provides a three-dimensional representation of breast tissue and allows images reformatting in three planes, and the generated coronal plane has been suggested t...

ConclusionsNLDs can be recognized on prenatal and postnatal imaging and may be primary, as in neonatal chylothorax or CLFD, or secondary. In this small series, “nutmeg lung” was present in all patients. Prenatal imaging demonstrates that body wall edema may correlate with postnatal dermal backflow, which, in our small cohort, carried a poor prognosis.
