Barnes, Matthew J. Brookes, Richard BowtellAbstractSmall, commercially-available Optically Pumped Magnetometers (OPMs) can be used to construct a wearable Magnetoencephalography (MEG) system that allows large head movements to be made during recording. The small dynamic range of these sensors however means that movement in the residual static magnetic field found inside typical Magnetically Shielded Rooms (MSR) can saturate the sensor outp...

This study assessed the ability of computed tomography (CT) to predict intramuscular fat (IMF) % in the M. longissimus thoracis et lumborum of 64 cattle undergoing Meat Standards Australia (MSA) marbling score. The striploin was dissected from carcasses at the 12th rib and CT scanned, with IMF% determined at the 12th rib of the M. longissimus thoracis (LT) and the caudal M. longissimus lumborum (LL). Prediction of IMF% using CT in the LT was moderate (R2 = 0.89, RMSE = 1.91) utilising CT pixel density and standard deviation, and better than prediction using MSA marbling score (R2 = 0.81, RMSE = 2.47). Predi...

The chemical composition of AKEO revealed that oleic acid is the major fatty acid present in AKEO. Also, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP), which is a strong antioxidant and antimicrobial agent, is present in a significant quantity. Chitosan films incorporated with AKEO in different concentrations were prepared ...

Kallio-Kujala, O.M. VainioAbstractThe effects of pre-treatment with vatinoxan (MK-467) on dexmedetomidine-induced cardiopulmonary alterations were investigated in sheep. In a crossover study design with a 20-day washout, seven sheep were anaesthetised with sevoflurane in oxygen and air. The sheep were ventilated with the pressure-limited volume-controlled mode and a positive end-expiratory pressure of 5 cmH2O. Peak inspiratory pressur...

In this study, hard/soft SrFe12-xVxO19/(Ni0.5Mn0.5Fe2O4)y nanocomposite with different amount of soft phase (y = 1, 2, 3) and various ratios of vanadium (x = 0.00, 0.02, 0.04) were synthesized using a one-pot sol-gel auto-combustion route. The X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning and high-resolution transmission electron microscopes (SEM, HRTEM) coupled with EDX and elemental mapping were used to investigate the structure, the morphology and the phase compositions of various nanocomposites, respectively. The analyses showed the formation of the desired phases. The vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) was also em...

The MoS2 nanosheets were then modified by trisilanol-phenyl-POSS (T7POSS) which was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Powder X-Ray Diffraction (PXRD). The modified MoS2 nanosheets were then incorporated into poly (methyl methacrylat...

Uniaxial elongation measurement suggests that there is a percolation threshold between 10 and 30 phr. Moreover, an optimum ΦSi range from 40 phr to 50 phr is found, in whi...

A 76-year-old patient with a 6-month history of dysphagia, profound weight loss, and hoarseness presents to the emergency room. A computed tomography scan showed a 4.5-cm left internal carotid artery aneurysm beyond the carotid artery bifurcation at the C2-C3 level. The patient required resection of a prepetrous skull base large internal carotid artery aneurysm with reconstruction of the internal carotid artery.
