Contribution of the Medical Imaging in Care of Ambiguous Genitalia  [PDF]
Zanga Sore Moussa, Diallo Ousseini, Ouattara Boubakar, Napon Aischa Madina, Bamouni Yomboue Abel, Cisse Rabiou
Open Journal of Radiology (OJRad) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojrad.2018.82014
Abstract: We report a case of ambiguous genitalia in a 15-year-old patient to demonstrate input of medical imaging in the diagnosis and care of this rare congenital deformation. Disorders of sexual differentiation (DSD) have been defined as congenital conditions in which development of chromosome, gonad, or anatomic sex is atypical and that raise an issue in the sex assignment. In lower socioeconomic countries where antenatal diagnosis is almost non-existent, due to lack of technical facilities, their medical and surgical management is hard. The case which we report was investigated by ultrasonography and genitography, which remains primary indications in our context.

Abstract: Objective: To describe the radiological and histological aspects of breast nodules among men in our practice setting. Methodology: This is a descriptive and retrospective study conducted from January 2014 to October 2017. The study included male patients with breast nodules classified ACR3, 4 or 5 after a mammographic and ultrasound scan. These lesions were explored through an ultrasound-guided breast microbiopsy. The following are the variables collected: age, family history of breast cancer, medical history, ACR classification, nodule size, and anatomopathologic diagnosis. Results: 13 breast nodules were explored among 13 male subjects. Mammography and breast ultrasound enabled to identify one ACR3 lesion, 10 ACR4 lesions and 2 ACR5 lesions. The average age was 56.53 ± 14.63 years and the average size of the nodules 28.91 ± 13.62 mm. As for histology, there were seven malignant tumors and six benign tumors. The average age of patients with malignancy was 61.45 ± 13.62 years. The malignant nodules average size was 29.45 ± 12.54 mm. Malignant tumors exclusively consisted of invasive breast carcinomas while Benign ones consisted of dystrophic and inflammatory lesions. Conclusion: Most often Breast lesions among men had an indeterminate appearance on imaging and were predominantly malignant in histopathology.

Abstract: Objective: To determine the diagnostic contribution of breast microbiopsy percutaneously under ultrasound guidance. Methodology: Retrospective descriptive study conducted from January 2014 to October 2017. The included patients had an ultrasound-guided breast microbiopsy after a mammographic and ultrasound scan. The variables collected were gender, age, nodule size, ACR classification and anatomopathologic diagnosis. Results: 347 nodules were explored in 313 patients. There were 300 women (95.85%) and 13 men (4.15%), a gender ratio of 23.07. The average age was 44.64 ± 14.18 years. The average size of the nodules was 30.33 ± 19.58 mm. There were 53.89% ACR4 grade nodules, 48% ACR5 nodules and 32.28% ACR3 nodules. 86.49% of ACR3 nodules were benign and 97.92% of ACR5 nodules were actually malignant. Malignant tumors accounted for 50.29% of the nodules and were dominated by invasive

Open Journal of Radiology (OJRad) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojrad.2019.91005
Abstract: Background: Acute intestinal ischemia is an abdominal suffering occasioned by a sudden reduction of mesenteric blood circulation. It is a rare and potentially serious medical-surgical emergency, deadly in 50% to 100% of cases. Diagnosis is known to be difficult at the early stage during which a well-conducted treatment may help reduce mortality. Multi-detector scanners were assessed to be far more sensitive and appropriate for the diagnosis of mesenteric ischemia than angiography. Objective: Study the tomodensitometric aspects of acute intestinal ischemia, and the traps of late diagnosis, in order to optimize the care and improve the prognosis of this disease. Patients and Methods: This is a prospective, longitudinal and descriptive study covering a period of nine (9) months. We have included all cases of acute intestinal ischemia. Results: Twenty (20) cases of acute intestinal ischemia were registered i.e. a frequency of 2.2 cases per month. The average age of the patients was 67.8 years with 0.7 as sex ratio. Abdominal pain was noted in all cases. History of cardiovascular disease was found in seven (7) cases. Abdominal angioscan was performed in fifteen (15) cases. There was a suspected diagnosis upon request in ten (10) cases. The main intestinal lesions were the lack of parietal enhancement (13 cases) and parietal thickening (12 cases). There were sixteen (16) cases of acute mesenteric ischemia and four (4) cases of ischemic colitis. The acute mesenteric ischemia was arterial in eleven (11) cases, venous in two (2) cases and mixed in two (2) cases. Diagnosis was made at the stage of intestinal infarction in eleven (11) cases. Ten (10) patients were operated and 10 others were treated medically. Thirteen (13) cases of death were registered. Conclusion: Acute intestinal ischemia is a rare but serious disease. Abdominal pain is the main ground for consultation. Diagnosis is often late and focuses on abdominal CT angiography. An early diagnosis could help improve its prognosis.
Quantitative Analysis Method for Corrosion and Patina Progression on Plumbing Components during Long-Term Connection Leaks from Potable Water Supply Systems  [PDF]
Abel Crean
World Journal of Engineering and Technology (WJET) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/wjet.2019.71006
Abstract: The modern field of Forensic Engineering evaluates the origin, cause, and duration of failed building components. As many failed components are subject to insurance claims and legal probes, a scientific methodology for evaluating such events is inherently valuable. Due to the potential for widespread interior finish damage, failed plumbing supply components are commonly encountered during forensic evaluations. Plumbing pipesthemselves and properly soldered fittings rarely fail. Consequently, many failures correspond to mechanical fittings which form connections from pipes to plumbing fixtures.The results of this study provide a scientific methodology to evaluate the duration of connection leaks by quantifying the extent of corrosion, patina, and accumulated deposits on various componentsby creating and evaluating slow plumbing supply component connection leaks.

Open Journal of Epidemiology (OJEpi) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojepi.2019.91003
Abstract: Background: Despite numerous advances in medicine and clinical care, in developing countries, adult undernutrition is overlooked and not considered as a sufficient medical priority. The objective of this study was to identify the magnitude of adult undernutrition and its associated factors in hospitalized patients. Methods: Cross-sectional study, performed in the university hospital in Bobo-Dioulasso, from August to September 2016, in a sample of 244 adult individuals. Patients were included in the study consecutively to their admission. A structured questionnaire was applied consisting of anthropometric, clinical and dietary data. The patients were evaluated and dichotomized into undernourished and non-undernourished. The rate of undernutrtion was reported using and associated factors were tested using the unadjusted crude Odds ratios (COR) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) and the Chi-square test. Results: Undernutrition occurred in 32.4% of the sample and at the univariate analysis, the variables associated with undernutrition were: recent and involuntary weight loss (COR = 2.58, 95% CI = 1.45 - 4.59, p < 0.001); disease chronic evolution (COR = 2.29, 95% CI = 1.23 - 4.23, p = 0.008) and females (COR = 1.76, 95% CI = 1.02 - 6.06, p = 0.04). Conclusion: Adult undernutrition is common in hospitalized patients. A proper early diagnosis and therapy need to be considered as medical priority of the entire healthcare team that treats adult’s inpatients.
Mass Spectrometric Imaging of Gold Nanolayer Coated Latent Fingermarks: Deciphering Overlapping Features by Statistical Analysis  [PDF]
Christian Elsner, Bernd Abel
Advances in Chemical Engineering and Science (ACES) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/aces.2016.65050
Abstract: Overlapping latent fingermarks constitute a serious challenge to database related recognition and matching algorithms in biometry, forensic and crime scene investigations. Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is a powerful tool for deciphering and analyzing overlapping fingermarks based on the individual chemical information of each deposit. Fingermark MSI in practice still requires a subjective judgment of an MSI expert, such that rapid analysis, automation, standardization, and a quantitative evaluation of the complete detection and separation process of overlapped fingermarks from MSI data sets is the ultimate goal and will be necessary to become an accepted process in criminal investigations and law enforcement. Here we investigated the feasibility and efficiency of different statistical approaches for the separation of overlapped latent fingermarks based on MSI data. Entropy analysis of generated m/z-images was used to evaluate the results obtained from the statistical analysis. Furthermore, we demonstrate and discuss the opportunity to reconstitute and separate overlapping fingermarks by discrete scanning at selected x,y-positions defined from a previous image analysis using a more simple schema based on visible and therefore optical distinguishable overlapped ink-based fingermarks. The overlapped latent fingermarks were developed by rapid gold sputter coating and analyzed by laser based MSI, without (organic) matrix preparation. Latent finger marks can be transferred from the substrate/surface with and conserved on a soft gold sputtered soft membrane at low temperatures.

Box dimension, oscillation and smoothness in function spaces
Abel Carvalho
Journal of Function Spaces and Applications , 2005, DOI: 10.1155/2005/405979
Abstract: The aim of this paper is twofold. First we relate upper and lower box dimensions with oscillation spaces, and we develop embeddings or inclusions between oscillation spaces and Besov spaces. Secondly, given a point in the (1p, s)-plane we determine maximal and minimal values for the upper box dimension (also the maximal value for lower box dimension) for the graphs of continuous real functions with a compact support, represented by this point.
