Spectroscopy from Space

Many satellites have lately been introduced or are in guidance, which function within the microwave to IR levels, the most target being to watch the earth's surroundings or interstellar clouds. research of the information they provide calls for wide laboratory paintings simply because we nonetheless merely have sufficiently exact information (line positions, intensities, and profiles) for just a few species.

Merging Processes in Galaxy Clusters

Mergers are the mechanisms through which galaxy clusters are assembled throughout the hierarchical progress of smaller clusters and teams. significant cluster mergers are the main vigorous occasions within the Universe because the titanic Bang. the various saw homes of clusters rely on the physics of the merging approach.

Sexual Mutilations: A Human Tragedy

Sexual mutilation is an international challenge that has effects on 15. three million young ones and teenagers every year. by way of gender, thirteen. three million boys and a couple of million ladies are involuntarily subjected to sexual mutilation each year. whereas it really is tempting to quantify and examine the quantity of tissue faraway from both gender, no moral justification could be made for elimination any volume of flesh from the physique of another individual.

The Measurement of Segregation in the Labor Force

While contemplating hard work marketplace inequality throughout diverse demographic teams in society, it's common for many contributors to consider discrimination because the probably rationalization. because the pioneering paintings of college of Chicago economist and Nobel Laureate Gary Becker, there was an abundance of either theoretical and empirical research at the factor of discrimination.

Example text

The findings in these patients were compared to those obtained in 13 normals who were young volunteers without clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease. Each participant was initially studied at rest with intravenous N -13 ammonia and cross-sectional imaging of the myocardial N-13 ammonia distribution. A second study was performed one hour later. After the N-13 activity had physically decayed, coronary hyperemia was induced with intravenous dipyridamole. A second dose of N-13 ammonia was injected and cross-sectional imaging of the myocardial N-13 activity distribution at the same levels through the heart was repeated.

Interest in transesophageal cardiac imaging is presently increasing and various types of ultrasonic imaging devices for esophageal use have already been presented. All these devices suffered either from a rigid tip too large to allow use in man [8], or from mechanical vibrations [7], or from a very restricted field of view [8]. A miniaturized phased array transducer fixed to the distal end of a gastroscope has the advantages of being small in size and covering most parts of the heart within its 90° sector image.

3. ADVANCES AND PERSPECTIVES IN ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY R. HAUKE The pulse-echo method can be divided into three areas of technology with respect to the medical application. These are compound-scan, B-scan and sector scan systems. The decision about which system is used for which examination is mainly given by the available acoustic window, resolution and scan speed required for medical diagnosis. It is known that compound systems have slow frame rates but a very good contour resolution (Figure 1).
