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...
Clients with cybersex addiction (CSA) are a growing challenge for mental health practitioners. Therapists must be more skilled and adept at identifying when the core issue is cybersex addiction in spite of client denial and potentially confounding symptoms. The main purpose of this exploratory...

Abstract Although only 20-50% of individuals with dementia are diagnosed, early diagnosis enables patients and families to access interventions and services, and plan for the future. The current study explored the experiences of rural family caregivers in the period leading up to a diagnostic...
The availability of robust and handheld devices for detection is of growing importance in environmental safety, food analysis, and human diagnostic areas. The currently accessible approaches for detection of bacteria and/or diagnosing cancer, suffer from a number of constraints that hinder their...
