Various X-ray imaging modalities, such as planar X-ray films, dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and computed tomography have been utilized to estimate bone strength for osteoporotic subjects. However, emerging cases of spontaneous femoral shaft fracture in osteoporotic patients after years of...
Ichnology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and trace fossil-permeability relationships in the Upper Cretaceous Medicine Hat Member, Medicine Hat gas field, southeast Alberta, CanadaDownload
The Upper Cretaceous Medicine Hat Member (Niobrara Formation) in western Canada contains abundant reserves of biogenic natural gas. In the Medicine Hat gas field area of southeast Alberta, nineteen cored intervals were examined and classified based on primary physical and biogenic sedimentary...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by progressive destruction of articular cartilage, subchondral bone sclerosis, and osteophyte formation. Currently there is no disease modifying drug for treatment of OA. Usually OA is not diagnosed until the advanced stages, where palliative treatment is the...
This current work investigates pore structure of various reservoir-rock materials using state-of-the-art microscopy such as micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) and Focused Ion Beam-Scanning electron Microscopy (FIB-SEM). Novel sample preparation methods have been developed for such rock cores,...
