To achieve this goal, extensive studies have demonstrated the radiosensitization potential of the gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) during treatment with low-energy ionizing radiation due to their high-photoelectric absorption coefficient. Compared to the AuNPs, t...

MetselaarAbstractIn this paper, experimental investigation and numerical modelling of the mechanical properties of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) nanofibrous membranes produced by electrospinning are addressed. Membranes with three different diameters are fabricated by adjusting the needle-collector distance during electrospinning. The fiber morphology and the physical properties of the resulting membranes are investigated using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) while their elastic properties ar...

In this work, selenide-containing polyimides were designed and synthesized via amine-dianhydride polycondensation. Two selenide containing diamines, e.g. bis(3-trifluoromethyl-4-aminophenyl)selenide (BTFAPS) and bis(4-aminophenyl)selenide (BAPS) were reacted with 4,4'-(Hexafluoroisopropylidene)diphthalic anhy...

I’ve mentioned Burwell and Tubney Fens previously, depending how you approach them, they are the back end of the NT Wicken Fen area. The semi-feral Konik ponies (Equus ferus caballus) of Polish descent there along with longhorn cattle (Bos primigenius) and European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), are natural managers of the scrub. Konik stallion The area is almost perfect roosting and hunting for Short-eared Owls, which have once again returned from Scandinavia to the Fen for their winter break. Starlings seem to find rich pickings around and on the Konik ponies of Burwell Fen There were three to four showing quite w...

EllingsenAbstractWhite matter hyperintensities (WMHs) of presumed vascular origin are frequently observed in magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of the elderly. Detection and quantification of WMHs is important to help doctors make diagnoses and evaluate prognosis of their elderly patients, and once quantified, these can act as biomarkers in clinical research studies. Manual delineation of WMHs can be both time-consuming and inconsistent, hence, automatic segm...
