Early detection of dementia is essential to guide front-line health care practitioners in further clinical evaluations and treatments. There is a paucity of literature assessing the effectiveness of screening tools to predict the development of dementia, thus we conducted a systematic review to...
Purpose: evaluate 1) reliability and accuracy of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for assessing adenoid size compared to nasoendoscopy (NE), 2) Influence of clinical experience on CBCT diagnosis. Methods: Four blinded evaluators reviewed randomized CBCT images. Adenoid size was graded on a...
While there has been much literature in the area of system monitoring and diagnosis, most of these techniques have a relatively small scope in terms of the faults and performance issues that they are built to detect. When implementing several monitors simultaneously on a single process, a single...
