Sonographic Correlation Of Fetal Neck Circumference And Area With Gestational Age Among Pregnant Women In Portharcourt, Nigeria.

Fetal gestational age calculation has been found to be influenced by differences in race. Discrepancy has been noted on previous studies done on fetal neck circumference and area measurements which were attributed to racial difference. This study was aimed at correlating fetal neck circumference and area with common gestational age predictors in second and third trimesters and to determine whether there is racial difference between Nigerians and Caucasians.  This prospective cross ...

Evaluation Of Cervical Spondylosis Using 0.2 Tesla Axial T2 And Axial 3d Fiesta Magnetic Resonance Imaging Sequences

ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of axial T2 and axial 3D FIESTAmagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences in the evaluation of cervical spondylosis.Thespecific objectives were to: (i) compare the accuracy of axial T2 and axial 3D FIESTA MRIsequences in the diagnosis of cervical spondylosis, (ii) compare the quality of images (signal-tonoiseratio, contrast-to-noise ratio and artefact due to flow) produced from both sequences and(iii) ascertain the association...

Sonographic Investigation Of The Effect Of Gongronema Latifolium On Gastric Emptying Of Semi - Solid Meals In Healthy, Diabetic And Gastroparetic Dogs

ABSTRACTGongronema latifolium is an edible tropical rainforest plant traditionally used as a spice,staple vegetable and in the treatment and management of diabetes. Extensive studies haveestablished its hypoglycaemic effect. However, scanty information is available on themechanism by which it exerts its hypoglycaemic effect. Studies have noted the presence ofsaponin in G. latifolium, a component noted to affect gastric emptying (GE). Presently, thepossible effect of G. latifolium on ...

Sonographic Assessment of the Size and Parenchymal Echo Texture of the Spleen among Sickle Cell Disease Patients at University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku-Ozalla, Nigeria

AbstractRegional variations in splenic size and spleen parenchymal echo-texture among sickle celldisease (SCD) patients have been documented in various publications. The objectives of thisstudy were to: determine and compare the spleen size of SCD patients with those of the control;characterize the spleen parenchymal echo-texture of SCD patients; and ascertain the relationshipsof age, height and weight with the spleen sizes of SCD patients and the controls.This was a cross sectional pro...

Determination of Normal Splenic Dimensions on Computed tomography Images in Sudanese Population

Spleen is enlarged in a variety of clinical conditions including infectious, infiltrative, immunologic and malignant states. Evaluation of splenic size is important in every physical examination of the abdomen by a physician.Determination of its size by palpation can be extremely inaccurate because spleen is never palpable till it is enlarged 2 to 3 times its own size. The accurate diagnosis of splenic enlargement is a matter of considerable importance as it is a usef...

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.
