Crash severity along rural mountainous highways in Malaysia: An application of a combined decision tree and logistic regression model.

CONCLUSION: In addition to unobserved heterogeneity, it is important to account for higher order interactions to have a better understanding of factors that influence crash severity. A proper understanding of these factors will help developing targeted countermeasures to improve road safety along rural mountainous highways. PMID: 29932734 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: For peripheral lung cancer, the measurement on CT and routine MRI sequences can potentially replace each other after comprehensive consideration of examination purposes, but for central lung cancer, alternative use of CT and MRI in evaluating treatment responses for lung cancer should needs extra attention. The diameter measurement of lung cancer on DWI is consistent with that on T1WI and T2WI, suggesting that DWI can provide functional and morphological information.

Authors: Choi WJ, Ha YR, Oh JH, Cho YS, Lee WW, Sohn YD, Cho GC, Koh CY, Do HH, Jeong WJ, Ryoo SM, Kwon JH, Kim HM, Kim SJ, Park CY, Lee JH, Lee JH, Lee DH, Park SY, Kang BS Abstract Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a useful tool that is widely used in the emergency and intensive care areas. In Korea, insurance coverage of ultrasound examination has been gradually expanding in accordance with measures to enhance Korean National Insurance Coverage since 2017 to 2021, and which will continue until 2021. Full coverage of health insurance for POCUS in the emergency and critical care areas was implemented in July 201...

ConclusionsThe accuracy of the Zeff values with dual-source DECT was good in agreement in the Multi-Energy phantom. The single-source fast kilovoltage switching type DECT could reduce the noise and accuracy of the Zeff values than that with single-source DECT for the varying concentrations of iodinated contrast medium.Advances in knowledgeThe accuracy and precision of the Zeff values of the contrast medium with the single-source fast kilovoltage switching type DECT could be sufficient with human equivalent materials.

ElansezhianAbstractThe manufacturing industries are ready to experiment with the metal matrix composites by miscellaneous materials out of ordinary combination. From the rundown, it is obvious that research is concentrated in recycling or reusing any waste material so as to reduce the usage of conventional materials. The present investigation aims to reuse waste spent catalysts from the petroleum industries (goes as waste in landfills) to synthesize aluminium metal matrix composite. The waste catalysts used in ...

In this study, a novel type of chimeric spider silk proteins (spidroins) NTW1–4CT was blended with poly(L-lactic-co-ε-caprolactone) (PLCL) to obtain nanofibrous scaffolds via electrospinning. Spidroins are composed of a N-terminal module (NT) from major ampullate spidroins, a C-terminal module (CT) from minor ampullate spidroins and 1–4 repeat modules (W) from aciniform spidroins. Physical characteristics and structures of NTW1–4CT/PLCL (25/75, w/w) blend scaffolds were carried out by scanning electron microscope (SEM), water contact angles measurements, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrosc...

A secondary product of the coffee industry is the oil extracted from unripe green beans. This extraction generates a solid green coffee cake (GCC) with potential to be applied as polymer composite reinforcement. For this purpose, the GCC must be treated...
