This study assessed the accuracy and reliability of tooth length measurements through axial, coronal and sagittal serial slices of CBCT volumes; conventional panoramic radiographs; and CBCT panoramic reconstructions to that of a digital caliper gold standard. Samples consisted of maxillary...
The centrifugal particle mass analyzer (CPMA)-electrometer system has been proposed as an alternative method of calibration for devices that measure black carbon. This system is proposed to replace the current calibration standard of NIOSH 5040. The repeatability and intermediate precision of the...
Reliability and validity of the attitudes to ageing questionnaire for Canadian and Norwegian older adults.Download
The aim of this study was to examine the reliability and validity of the Attitudes to Ageing Questionnaire (AAQ), a new scale designed for cross-cultural comparisons of older adults. There are currently very few measures intended to measure the attitudes of older adults to their own ageing. The...
Background Utilization indices exist to measure quantity of prenatal care, but currently there is no published instrument to assess quality of prenatal care. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a new instrument, the Quality of Prenatal Care Questionnaire (QPCQ). Methods Data for...
Background: Health-care organizations need to be ready prior to implement evidence-based interventions. In this study, we sought to achieve consensus on a framework to assess the readiness of health-care organizations to implement evidence-based interventions in the context of chronic care....
Technical report TR09-12. Optimal utility-based congestion control is an optimization approach to congestion control problems where the objective is to maximize the aggregate source utility over their transmission rates. It has been used to analyze Internet congestion control schemes. In this...

Background Changes in health status, triggered by events such as infections, falls, and geriatric syndromes, are common among nursing home (NH) residents and necessitate transitions between NHs and Emergency Departments (EDs). During transitions, residents frequently experience care that is...
SSHRC IG awarded 2018: Consumption (purchases) is considered one of the best metrics of individual and household well-being. Economists typically assume households elect to smooth their consumption, so as to insure against shocks such as disability or unemployment. The current state-of-the-art...
Improving Measurements of the Mixing State and Mass Concentration of Particulate Emissions from Aircraft EnginesDownload
This research is focused towards improving techniques used to measure particulate emissions from aircraft engines, on two fronts: first, to characterize and quantify the mixing state of particulate emissions; and second, to calibrate black carbon mass instruments with a traceable mass...
