- How should I take an infant's temperature? Cohm, Anthony // Pulse;7/1/2002, Vol. 62 Issue 26, p60
Reveals the safest and best practice when taking an infant's temperature. Reason tympanic measurements are less useful for children under three years of age; Thermometers that appear to be as accurate as and safer than mercury-in-glass ones; Factor that might affect temperature readings.
- Thermology and facial telethermography. Part I: history and technical review. Anbar, M; Gratt, B M; Hong, D // Dentomaxillofacial Radiology;Mar1998, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p61
This paper is a review of historical trends and technical advances in measurement of skin temperature. Most biochemical processes generate heat which must be dissipated. Skin is the major route for heat dissipation using blood as the heat exchange fluid. Skin temperature is an indicator of...
- Involuntary movement in pediatric moyamoya disease patients: consideration of pathogenetic mechanism using neuroimaging studies. Lee, Ji; Kim, Seung-Ki; Wang, Kyu-Chang; Chae, Jong; Cheon, Jung-Eun; Choi, Jung; Phi, Ji; Lim, Byung; Kim, Ki; Kim, In-One; Hwang, Yong; Chung, Young // Child's Nervous System;May2014, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p885
Purpose: Involuntary movement is a rare symptom of moyamoya disease (MMD). No consensus has been reached regarding its clinical features and pathogenetic mechanism. Therefore, pediatric MMD patients presenting with involuntary movement were retrospectively analyzed, focusing on the image...
- Comparison of Auscultation, Continuous Wave Doppler Imaging, Intravenous Digital Subtraction Angiography and Conventional Angiography in Diagnosis of Carotid Artery Disease. Caes, Frank; Vierendeels, Tijl; Janssens-Willem, Eddy; Cham, Bachir; Welch, William // Angiology;Nov1987, Vol. 38 Issue 11, p799
The reliability of auscultation, continuous wave (CW) Doppler imaging, and intravenous digital subtraction angiography (IV DSA) in the assessment of carotid artery disease has been evaluated in comparison with conventional angiography in 30 patients. With auscultation, specificity and...
- Caution urged on tympanic figures. // Pulse;10/8/2005, Vol. 65 Issue 39, p16
Reports on the warning of Doctor Frances Dockery on interpreting the readings from tympanic thermometers which exclude a low-grade fever in Great Britain.
- Carotid atherosclerosis and cerebral white matter lesions in a population based magnetic resonance imaging study. de Leeuw, F.-E.; de Groot, J. C.; Bots, M. L.; Witteman, J. C. M.; Oudkerk, M.; Hofman, A.; van Gijn, J.; Breteler, M. M. B. // Journal of Neurology;Apr2000, Vol. 247 Issue 4, p291
Cerebral white matter lesions are frequently observed on magnetic resonance imaging of elderly, nondemented persons. There is evidence that white matter lesions are involved in the pathophysiology of cognitive decline and dementia. White matter lesions can be divided into those in the...
- Aberrant ectatic internal carotid artery in the middle ear. Safdar, Adnan; Hughes, Joseph P.; Walsh, Rory McConn // ENT: Ear, Nose & Throat Journal;Apr2008, Vol. 87 Issue 4, p214
We report the case of a 34-year-old man with pulsatile tinnitus and a reddish mass in the anteroinferior quadrant of the middle ear. Physical examination and imaging were unable to establish a diagnosis, so an exploratory tympanotomy was performed. Exploration revealed the presence of an ectatic...
- Ã–ksÃ¼rÃ¼k SonrasÄ± Karotid Arter Diseksiyonu: FibromuskÃ¼ler Displazili Olgu. Uzar, Ertuğrul; Kırbaş, İsmail; Özay, Rafet; İlhan, Atilla // Turkish Journal of Neurology / Turk Noroloji Dergisi;Dec2009, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p194
Dissection of the internal carotid artery due to fibromuscular dysplasia is a rare cause of transient ischemic attack in young patients. Usually, the diagnosis of fibromuscular dysplasia is usually based on conventional and/or magnetic resonance angiography. A 44- years- old female patient...
- Breast Cancer Screening Using High-Resolution Digital Thermography. Bennett, Michael // Total Health;Nov/Dec2000, Vol. 22 Issue 6, p44
Provides information on the high-quality digital thermography for breast cancer screening in women. Historical perspective of the thermography; How technological innovations in medicine changed the screening practice; Basic requirements and qualifications of women undergoing thermography.
