Those that met the inclusion criteria were scanned at theschool clinics where their height ...

Prevalence Of Neuroabnormalities In Preterm Neonates: A Study Using Ultrasonography At The Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital

ABSTRACT Introduction: Over the years, ultrasound imaging has been used to diagnose neurological abnormalities of neonates in general and premature infants in particular. This is because the anatomy of the neonatal brain can be demonstrated on ultrasound images with high precision. Neonatal sonography is possible because the fontanelles of the skull allow ultrasound beam to penetrate to the brain tissue. In Ghana, little or no data is available on the prevalence of neuro abnormalitie...

Chemical And Isotopic Composition of Rainwater in The Coastal, Forest And Mountainous Ares of Volta Region of Ghana

ABSTRACT Harvesting rainwater for domestic use is one of the oldest technologies developed by man. In Ghana, groundwater utilization challenges posed by dry wells and high levels of contaminants such as iron, fluoride and other minerals in some geological formations makes harnessing of rainwater for household use inevitable. Whiles researchers are looking for efficient ways of dealing with contaminants associated with these water sources, focus is gradually shifting to the developme...

MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPHY: CONCEPT AND USES

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a functional neuroimaging technique for mapping brain activity by recording magnetic fields produced by electrical currents occurring naturally in the brain, using very sensitive magnetometers. Arrays of SQUIDs(Superconducting quantum interference devices) are currently the most common magnetometer, while the SERF(pin exchange relaxation- free) magnetometer is being investigated for future machines.

Women’s Perception of Transvaginal Sonography: A Study at Image Diagnostics, Portharcourt

ABSTRACTTransvaginal sonography is a later addition to the diagnostic techniques available for the evaluation of the female pelvis and can overcome many of the limitations of traditional transabdominal scanning. Transvaginal sonography involves the placement of the probe within the vagina. This is uncomfortable for most women especially in this part of the world where ethical issues are now a challenge. This may reduce the practicability of transvaginal sonography. There is also reluctance in...

LOCAL CONSTRUCTION OF BATTERY POWERED DUAL FACE RADIOGRAPHIC VIEWING BOX WITH ROTATABLE NECK AND ADJUSTABLE STAND

INTRODUCTIONRadiographic viewing box is an illuminator use in viewing radiographs. Proper viewing conditions are very important when interpreting a radiograph. The viewing condition can enhance or degrade the subtle detail of the radiograph14. Before beginning the evaluation of radiograph, the viewing equipment and area should be considered. The area should be clean and free of distracting materials, magnifying aids, and film makers should be close at hand. Its function being to improves subj...

IMMUNE – REGULATORY AND THERAPEUTIC USES OF INFRARED PHYSICS

ABSTRACTThe aim of the experiment was to estimate the effect of repeated simultaneous exposures to infrared laser radiation and μT variable magnetic field used in magneto stimulation on pain perception in rats, as well as the involvement of endogenous opioid system in the mechanism of this effect. In experimental group clean-shaven scull of male Wistar rats placed individually in a specially designed plastic chamber were simultaneously exposed to infrared laser radiation (wave...
