Dried shrimps irradiated at 1−7 kGy with gamma rays, electron beam (E-beam), and X-rays were screened with an electronic nose (E-nose) and electronic tongue (E-tongue). The data were compared with those from European standard methods (photostimulated luminescence, PSL) and direct epifluorescent filter technique/aerobic plate count, DEFT/APC). A...

Their kinetics of crystallization was studied by X-rays, DSC and electric resistivity. Al – (Ni + Co) – REM metallic glasses are characterized by the wider (for 100 K) interval of amorphous state in comparison with Al-Ni-REM and Al-Co-REM alloys. They...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate the normative value of distance between the spinous processes (inter-spinous process distance, ISPD), correlations between patients ’ demographics and ISPD, and determine cutoff ISPD values that result in segmental lordosis in posterior cervical-thoracic arthrodesis with instrumentation.MethodsWe reviewed patients with visible lower cervical and cervicothoracic spinous processes (C5-T2) on dynamic X-rays. Radiographic measurements included segmental Cobb angles (S-Cobb) and ISPD, defined as the distance between midpoints of the spinous processes. Correlations between patient demographics...
