Naves, Marcell de Melo,Sousa, Rogério Costa,Tomé, Raphael Alves Ferreira,Damian, Nicholas Godoy Canazza
Arquivos Internacionais de Otorrinolaringologia , 2011,
Abstract: Introdu o: A prévia avalia o da anatomia do paciente é fundamental para atingir uma ponta nasal bem definida em rinoplastia. A espessura do tecido subcutaneo é essencial para a harmonia estética dessa regi o. Técnicas de mensura o dessas estruturas no paciente "in vivo" n o est o padronizadas na literatura. Objetivo: Avaliar a variabilidade interobservador do método ultrassonográfico para medida da espessura do tecido subcutaneo da ponta nasal por de ultrasonografia. Método: 47 voluntários submeteram-se a ultrasonografia da ponta nasal por dois especialistas em radiologia que utilizaram a mesma técnica de exame com transdutor eletr nico linear na frequência de 5 a 9 MHz. Avaliou-se a espessura do tecido subcutaneo através da medida do ponto de maior proje o do domo da cartilagem alar maior até a pele. Estudo prospectivo. Resultados: As médias das medidas do tecido subcutaneo da ponta nasal obtidas pelos examinadores n o apresentaram diferen as estatisticamente significante (p = 0.5303). Na análise da reprodutibilidade entre examinadores encontrou-se coeficiente de correla o interclasse r (Pearson) 0,9333, isto é, uma excelente reprodutibilidade interobservadores. Conclus o: A ultrassonografia demonstrou-se reprodutível e excelente concordancia entre os examinadores para avalia o da espessura do tecido subcutaneo da pele, auxiliando o cirurgi o na análise pré-operatória do paciente e na escolha da melhor técnica cirúrgica para cada caso.
Evaluation of the ultrasound reproducibility as a method to measure the subcutaneous tissue of the nasal tip
Naves, Marcell de Melo,Sousa, Rogério Costa,Tomé, Raphael Alves Ferreira,Damian, Nicholas Godoy Canazza
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2011,
Abstract: Introduction: The previous evaluation of the patient's anatomy is crucial to achieve a sharp nasal tip in a rhinoplasty. The thickness of the subcutaneous tissue is indispensable for the esthetical harmony of the area. Techniques to measure such structures on the patient 'in vivo' are not found in literature. Objective: Evaluate the inter-observer inconsistency of the ultrasound method to measure the thickness of the subcutaneous tissue of the nasal tip by way of an ultrasound. Method: 47 volunteers were submitted to a nasal tip ultrasound performed by two radiology specialists, who used the same exam technique with a linear electronic transducer at a frequency between 5 and 9 MHz. The thickness of the subcutaneous tissue was evaluated by measuring the point with the highest protrusion of the largest alar cartilage dome towards skin. Prospective study. Results: The measurement averages of the subcutaneous tissue of the nasal tip achieved by the examiners did not show statistically significant differences (p = 0.5303). When analyzing the reproducibility between examiners, an interclass 'r'correlation coefficient (Pearson) 0.9333, i.e., an excellent inter-observer reproducibility was found. Conclusion: The ultrasound proved to be reproducible and examiners satisfactorily agree about evaluating the thickness of the subcutaneous tissue of the skin, thus helping the surgeon perform the pre-surgical analysis and find the best surgical technique for each case.

Verona Leonardo Lima,Damian Nicholas Godoy Canazza,Pavarina Lucimara P.,Ferreira Cristina H. F.
Jornal de Pediatria , 2006,
Abstract: OBJETIVO: Relatar um par de gêmeas monozigóticas, no qual uma das crian as é afetada pela síndrome de Goldenhar, enquanto a outra é saudável. DESCRI O: Paciente do sexo feminino, filha de pais sadios, jovens e n o consangüíneos. A propósita nasceu de parto cesáreo pré-termo com Capurro somático de 35 semanas e 2 dias, pesando 2.170 g, com 42,5 cm de comprimento, perímetro cefálico de 30 cm e Apgar 3/7. Ao nascimento, a crian a evoluiu com desconforto respiratório grave, sendo transferida para unidade de tratamento intensivo neonatal. A outra gemelar nasceu com 3.200 g, 49 cm de comprimento, 34 cm de perímetro cefálico e Apgar 8/10. Foi transferida junto com a m e para o alojamento conjunto da maternidade e recebeu alta com 2 dias de vida. A crian a afetada apresentava hipoplasia facial esquerda, micrognatia importante, displasia de pavilh o auricular e apêndices pré-auriculares bilaterais e dermóide epibulbar à direita. Evoluiu com apnéia obstrutiva, em conseqüência da micrognatia, e necessitou de traqueostomia. As ultra-sonografias de cranio e abdome foram normais, a radiografia de coluna total mostrou hemivértebra em T9/T10, o ecocardiograma detectou tetralogia de Fallot, e o cariótipo realizado a partir de linfócitos de sangue periférico com bandeamento GTG foi 46,XX. A avalia o oftalmológica foi normal. O exame molecular provou tratar-se de gêmeas monozigóticas com 99,99% de probabilidade. COMENTáRIO: A clínica e os exames complementares levaram ao diagnóstico de síndrome de Goldenhar. Existem relatos de gemelares afetados por essa condi o com expressividade variável, o que corrobora a hipótese de que a etiologia n o é puramente genética, mas resultado de um processo de disrup o vascular no período de morfogênese.

A Systemic Approach to the Preservation of Audio Documents: Methodology and Software Tools
Federica Bressan,Sergio Canazza
Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/489515
Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for the preservation of audio documents, the operational protocol that acts as the methodology, and an original open source software system that supports and automatizes several tasks along the process. The methodology is presented in the light of the ethical debate that has been challenging the international archival community for the last thirty years. The operational protocol reflects the methodological principles adopted by the authors, and its effectiveness is based on the results obtained in recent research projects involving some of the finest audio archives in Europe. Some recommendations are given for the rerecording process, aimed at minimizing the information loss and at quantifying the unintentional alterations introduced by the technical equipment. Finally, the paper introduces an original software system that guides and supports the preservation staff along the process, reducing the processing timing, automatizing tasks, minimizing errors, and using information hiding strategies to ease the cognitive load. Currently the software system is in use in several international archives. 1. Introduction Computer science offers multiple possibilities to study the fields of humanities: a major topic that has been rapidly growing along the past decades is the implementation of computer engineering in musical cultural heritage, with a particular relation to the audio documents preservation (“ideally, an audio preservation workflow would also involve the services of a specialized programmer” [1]). Scholars and the general public started paying greater attention to the recordings of musical events and to their value, at a personal/collective level and for cultural/entertainment purposes. However, a systematic preservation and the fruition of these documents is complicated by their diversified nature: recordings contain information on their artistic and cultural existence that goes beyond the audio signal itself. In this sense, a faithful and satisfying access to the audio document cannot be achieved without its associated contextual information, that is, to all the content-independent information represented by the container, the signs on the carrier, the accompanying material, and so on. In an official technical report, the UNESCO [2] claims that over half of the cultural patrimony of the world is at serious risk of vanishing, despite the attention that a topic such as cultural heritage preservation has attracted, especially by the European Union which proved great awareness in financing a number of research projects
A Multimodal Learning System for Individuals with Sensorial, Neuropsychological, and Relational Impairments
Sergio Canazza,Gian Luca Foresti
Journal of Sensors , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/564864
Abstract: This paper presents a system for an interactive multimodal environment able (i) to train the listening comprehension in various populations of pupils, both Italian and immigrants, having different disabilities and (ii) to assess speech production and discrimination. The proposed system is the result of a research project focused on pupils with sensorial, neuropsychological, and relational impairments. The project involves innovative technological systems that the users (speech terabits psychologists and preprimary and primary schools teachers) could adopt for training and assessment of language and speech. Because the system is used in a real scenario (the Italian schools are often affected by poor funding for education and teachers without informatics skills), the guidelines adopted are low-cost technology; usability; customizable system; robustness. 1. Introduction Learning systems providing user interaction within physical spaces have been carried out over the years. However the high cost and the high complexity of the technologies used have always implied that their use by pupils in real context was limited to occasional visits or short periods of experimentation. Our aim is to provide an interactive multimodal environment (developed in C++) that can be integrated with the ordinary educational activities within the school. For this purpose, we use common technologies—such as webcams, microphones, and Microsoft Kinect sensors—in order (i) to provide tools that allow teachers to adapt or create autonomously the educational activities content to be carried out with the system and (ii) to implement a user interface for the management software that does not require specific computer skills. Our system implements the five different types of interaction stated by Moreno and Mayer [1]: (1) dialogue, (2) control, (3) manipulation, (4) search, and (5) navigation. Indeed, these five levels are very familiar during the everyday learning activity. Here are some examples: (1) a comparison/oral discussion in which the exchange of information is not unilateral, but the opportunities to the students to ask questions and express their opinions are given influencing the content of the lesson; (2) oral exposure in which the student has the ability to control the speed and to stop the explanation in order to benefit from the educational content at their own pace; (3) a scientific experiment that leaves the possibility for the student to test different parameters and see what happens; (4) the ability to independently seek information on a certain subject within a

Educa??o : Teoria e Prática , 2009,
Abstract: The report that is presented here focuses on an analysis of some aspects initially detected in the resumption of activities of the Program on Education for Youth and Adults (Peja), at the Campus of UNESP in Araraquara / SP. Accordingly, placing the importance of extramural activities for training licentiates face the serious problems affecting the quality of school and education in Brazil, particularly the Education of Youth and Adults, and considering that the face of this reality should be given from the perspective of training combined with the research, reflection that is presented here, seeks to present the profile of students who are interested in participating in the process of reorganization of the group of literacy teachers, the first steps in the process of training in classrooms and the events and views expressed by two scholarship girls of the stock PEJA on the activities for which came to be called to perform in front of a teacher performance classroom.Highlighting strengths and difficulties identified, the analysis undertaken by the participants reveal the value of the activities of extension, closely related to research and training, as well as give clues about factors that could enrich and enhance the initial training courses for graduates.
School Inclusion: Analyzing the Establishment and Organization of a Special Needs Education Service in a Brazilian Municipality  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.57057
Abstract:

The present research integrates a network of studies called National Monitoring Center for Special Education (NMCSE) which studies the Multi-purpose Feature Rooms (MFRs) in regular schools. We aim to investigate whether the service offered by such rooms, maintained by the Department of Education of the Municipality of Araraquara, in S?o Paulo State, Brazil, is being successful at supporting the education of children and youth with special needs, pervasive developmental disorders and high skilled/gifted individuals. We have also investigated the limits and possibilities of such rooms concerning the set of services offered to their participants. In order to conduct the present research, we have performed: an interview with the Special Education Program manager from the abovementioned Department of Education; and the analysis of a Training Program that MFRs teachers must take. The training program consists of ten morning and afternoon shift meetings. The analyzed data leads us to conclude that the policy of implementation of MFRs, even in this relatively restricted universe is seen from different perspectives. Some interpretations are still permeated by the clinical model, considering individual action. The challenges observed in the classrooms show that the cooperation among teachers still occur randomly and, among other difficulties raised by them, is the selection of the right placement methods to identify eligible students who will benefit from the Specialized Educational Service (SES). In addition, teaching evaluation was considered fragile, as well as the training and the general requirements demanded in order to achieve the expected results.
