Systematic Review Intraoral scan bodies in implant dentistry: A systematic review
ConclusionsISBs are complex implant-positioning-transfer devices that play an essential role in the digital workflow and fabrication of accurately fitting implant-supported restorations. With scanner technology rapidly evolving and becoming more widespread, future studies are needed and should be directed toward all parts of the digital workflow when using ISBs. By understanding the basic components of ISBs and how they relate to digital scanning and CAD-CAM technology, more emphasis may be placed on their importance and usage in the digital workflow to ensure accurate transfer of implant position to the virtual and analog...

The Power of Data to Affect Patient Outcomes
In my role as the EMS Coordinator for St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Northern Kentucky, I’m the interface between EMS agencies in the area and our hospitals.

Brains of people with schizophrenia are less reactive to social rewards like smiling faces, study shows
FINDINGSIn imaging studies, UCLA researchers found that the brains of people with schizophrenia are less sensitive to social rewards, such as the positive feelings that can come from social interactions with people, than they are to so-called nonsocial rewards, such as money or objects.BACKGROUNDPeople generally find social stimulation rewarding, which in turn motivates them to seek more social interactions. Conversely, in people with schizophrenia, abnormalities in how the brain processes social rewards likely contribute  to human interaction problems. One of the hallmarks of schizophrenia is the impairment of social...

Regulating the femtosecond excited-state lifetime of a single molecule
The key to controlling reactions of molecules induced with the current of a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) tip is the ultrashort intermediate excited ionic state. The initial condition of the excited state is set by the energy and position of the injected current; thereafter, its dynamics determines the reaction outcome. We show that a STM can directly and controllably influence the excited-state dynamics. For the STM-induced desorption of toluene molecules from the Si(111)-7x7 surface, as the tip approaches the molecule, the probability of manipulation drops by two orders of magnitude. A two-channel quenching of the ...
