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...

ASSESSMENT OF MAMMOGRAPHIC SCREENING AWARENESS AMONG FEMALE TRADERS IN ENUGU METROPOLIS, ENUGU STATE

ABSTRACT So far, mammographic screening is the only mode of detection that has been shown to reduce breast cancer mortality (Montazeri et al). Thus unless women are educated about mammography and mammographic screening, the goal of reducing breast cancer fatalities will remain out of reach. The aim of this study is to assess mammographic screening awareness of traders in Enugu metropolis, Enugu state using Ogbete market as a case study. A well structured questionnaire was used for this s...
