The Diamond Light Source (DLS) beamline I15-1 measures atomic pair distribution functions (PDF) using scattering of 40-80 keV X-rays. A unique focusing element was needed to condense these X-rays from an initial large cross section (11.0 mm H × 4.2 mm V) into a required spot size of FWHM ...

Introduction: Post-operative glenoid retroversion has been shown in biomechanical, finite element analysis, and clinical studies to be related to the development of radiolucency and component loosening, one of the most common causes of failure after total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). We analyzed version correction after TSA and the associated risk of developing glenoid component radiolucency at minimum 2-year follow-up. A minimal radiation method was validated in a cadaveric model and utilized in a clinical series to measure post-operative glenoid component version using routine post-operative X-rays, pre-operative CT scan...

This will be a quick post because I can type only with one hand. Reason: on Saturday, during a weekend trip with Stefano and friends in Maremma, a lovely area in southern Tuscany, I lost my balance while exploring an archaeological site and fell. Hard. On my left shoulder. Bam! We didn’t go to the local hospital because nothing seemed to be broken. I was in pain but could move my hand and even my shoulder a bit. I couldn’t lift my arm but we figured it was just because the muscles had taken a hit. We went to  a pharmacy to get a painkiller and a sling for my arm, and that was that. We kept on sightseeing, ...

Publication date: Available online 16 May 2019Source: Materials Chemistry and PhysicsAuthor(s): Ghafar Ali, Muhammad MaqboolAbstractThe present work reports the field emission (FE) properties of well-aligned TiO2 nanotubes (TNTs) grown on Ti wire. Vertically-oriented, and highly-ordered TNTs with high aspect ratio are synthesized on Ti wire by electrochemical anodization in ethylene glycol (EG) electrolyte containing a small amount of ammonium fluoride (NH4F) and de-ionized (DI) water. The as-anodized TNTs have been characterized using FESEM, HRTEM, EDAX, XRD, and XPS. FESEM study shows that the average diameter of the nan...

We report here a robust, efficient and green ultrasound assisted synthesis to obtain metallic bismuth NPs. The procedure, which has been optimized to get a reproducible synthesis, will also tend to minimize chemical hazards to health and environment. By applying the green chemistry principles, several experimental parameters have been studied such as reaction time, reactants stoichiometry, temperature, starting material quantities and purification steps number. Two energy delivery system (classical heating and sonication) were compared. The production of small metallic bismuth NPs on a large scale by flow chemistry coupled...

Scaphoid fractures may not be visible on standard (postero-anterior and lateral) wrist X-rays or scaphoid series radiographs obtained shortly after injury1,2. As a result the diagnosis of a scaphoid fracture relies heavily on the clinical history of the injury and clinical findings. Untreated scaphoid fractures can lead to non-union and cause persistent wrist pain and loss of function in the short term, and clinically relevant wrist arthritis over a period of years 3.
