Apparatus and instruments that generate and operate with ELECTRICITY, and their electrical components.
Screens which absorb the energy in the x-ray beam that has penetrated the patient and convert this energy into a light pattern which has as nearly as possible the same information as the original x-ray beam. The more light a screen produces for a given input of x-radiation, the less x-ray exposure and thus shorter exposure time are needed to expose the film. In most film-screen systems, the film is sandwiched between two screens in a cassette so that the emulsion on each side is exposed to the light from its contiguous screen.

Penetrating electromagnetic radiation emitted when the inner orbital electrons of an atom are excited and release radiant energy. X-ray wavelengths range from 1 pm to 10 nm. Hard X-rays are the higher energy, shorter wavelength X-rays. Soft x-rays or Grenz rays are less energetic and longer in wavelength. The short wavelength end of the X-ray spectrum overlaps the GAMMA RAYS wavelength range. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.

The basic cellular units of nervous tissue. Each neuron consists of a body, an axon, and dendrites. Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM.
A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.

The communication from a NEURON to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a SYNAPSE. In chemical synaptic transmission, the presynaptic neuron releases a NEUROTRANSMITTER that diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to specific synaptic receptors, activating them. The activated receptors modulate specific ion channels and/or second-messenger systems in the postsynaptic cell. In electrical synaptic transmission, electrical signals are communicated as an ionic current flow across ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES.
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.

Next, I will tell you something about the resisting forces on their own. Talking about the resisting forces, there are five important factors contributing to frictional resistance which are:. R1: Sliding friction between the avalanche and the underlying snow or ground.. R2: Internal dynamic shear resistance due to collisions and momentum exchange between particles and blocks of snow.. R3: Turbulent friction within the snow/air suspension. R4: Shear between the avalanche and the surrounding air.. R5: Fluid-dynamic drag at the front of the avalanche.. To find out acceleration on an avalanche, we have to know these resisting forces. The formula for this is listed in the documentation. The importance of the individual resisting forces varies within the avalanche and depends on the type of avalanching snow.. Lastly, I will teach you somethings about avalanche impact. Avalanches can produce very large dynamic forces on objects. High velocity, low density, dry snow avalanches may flow over or around ...

This is the spectacular moment a rare spring avalanche crashed 3,000 metres down the side of Mont Blanc in France. Stunned locals at the popular ski resort in the Haute-Savoie region of the French alps heard a deafening roar before the cascade of snow on April 15. Footage filmed from the Chamonix resort near the base of the famous skiing mountain shows the avalanche as it descended from the Taconnaz glacier. Onlooker Carla Perez Castillo said: This video was taken at Les Gaillands, climbing sector in Chamonix Mont-Blanc. We heard a big crack and saw a huge part of the Glacier du Taconnaz creating this huge avalanche. The avalanche happened shortly before 3pm and started at a height of around 4,300 metres. Officials said it was triggered by a huge block of ice falling at the top of the mountain, which then picked up more snow on the way down. An impressive white cloud, visible from the town of Chamonix, was seen by residents. Thomas Blanchard, meteorologist for the Meteo Alpes website said avalanches
Avalanches have long been a natural threat to humans in mountainous areas. At the end of the Middle Ages, the population in Europe experienced significant growth, leading to an intensive exploitation of upper valleys. At almost the same time, Europes climate cooled down considerably and severe winters became more common. In the Alps, several villages were partly destroyed by avalanches, forcing inhabitants to develop the first mitigation strategies against the threat. By the late 19th century, the development of central administrations led to the creation of national forestry departments in each alpine country, principally to tackle the dangers posed by avalanches. As a result, forest engineers conceived not only the science of avalanches but also the first large-scale techniques to alleviate avalanche risks (such as reforestation). However, with the steady growth of transport, industry, tourism, and urbanization in high-altitude areas, these earlier measures soon reached their limits. A new impetus
WorkSafeBC is reminding employers, specifically in primary-resource industries, that they are required to identify, assess and mitigate avalanche risk.. WorkSafeBCs Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requires all employers to ensure safe workplaces, including minimizing worker exposure to the risk of avalanches. If an avalanche risk is identified, employers must develop and implement appropriate avalanche safety plans and/or a program.. B.C. is full of such rugged terrain, and working in it without proper precautions is dangerous, even deadly, says Patrick Davie, WorkSafeBC manager of prevention field services, Kamloops. Employers in these situations are required under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation to ensure a well-rehearsed safety plan is in place and well understood by all workers.. WorkSafeBC expects primary-resource industries with worksites in avalanche terrain to step up their risk awareness and prevention efforts. Employers can work with their local WorkSafeBC ...
A handful of fatalities were from skiing off-piste, i.e. using lift-served unmarked routes, but the majority of the deaths in Switzerland have been back-country skiers and snowboarders. One would generally expect these people to be better prepared than those killed off-piste. Four of the back-country fatalities occurred when the avalanche risk was moderate. These include one in the Jura, the first avalanche fatality in this area that I am aware of in over 20 years.. One off-piste fatality of a British skier occurred below les Attelas in Verbier on 18th January when the avalanche risk was moderate. This is generally considered a safe off-piste area, bounded as it is by lifts and groomed runs. As is usually the case, the unfortunate skier was not alone, and other people were also caught by the avalanche but survived.. Interestingly very few avalanche fatalities (3%) historically occur when the avalanche risk is high and none when the risk is very high. The majority of deaths occur when the ...
Reconstructing past avalanche frequency using tree-rings - Trees are susceptible to damage from geomorphic processes such as avalanches, and individual trees record the effects of the disturbance in several ways. An avalanche may cause wounds on the tree trunk or branches. It can also locally destroy the cambium (plant cells responsible for plant diameter increasing), causing disruption of new cell formation. As a result, the tree then produces tissue and the cells overgrow the injury forming a scar on the tree-ring. Other markers of mechanical disturbance from avalanches in tree ring records include reaction wood (created in response to gravity to push a tree back to a vertical position) and traumatic resin ducts (created after injury to deliver more resin, an antiseptic, to injured part of tree).. We collect cross-sectional wood samples from dead (both downed and standing dead) trees and trunk core samples from live trees. We process, date, and measure tree ring widths using standard ...
The evacuation order for buildings along the mountainside at Nybyen took effect at 8 a.m. Saturday. A ban on traffic along that side is also in effect, as is a traffic ban along the hillside of Lia near the center of Longyearbyen.. Strong southeasterly winds and snow are still forecast throughout Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday, the governors statement notes. Among other things, there may be a danger of cornice fall avalanches that can trigger larger avalanches that can reach the buildings located on the east side of the road in Nybyen. Avalanches can also occur on the mountainside.. The evacuation affects a total of 56 people, with 21 more in a tour group who was staying in that area expected to return to town Sunday, Svalbardposten reported. All of those displaced so far have found temporary housing, according to city officials.. A heightened risk of avalanches also exists in other terrain in the vicinity of Longyearbyen. The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate is ...
Recent studies pinpoint visually cued networks of avalanches with MEG/EEG data. Co-activation pattern (CAP) analysis can be used to detect single brain volume activity profiles and hemodynamic fingerprints of neuronal avalanches as sudden high signal activity peaks in classical fMRI data. In this study, we aimed to detect dynamic patterns of brain activity spreads with the use of ultrafast MR encephalography (MREG). MREG achieves 10 Hz whole brain sampling, allowing the estimation of spatial spread of an avalanche, even with the inherent hemodynamic delay of the BOLD signal. We developed a novel computational method to separate avalanche type fast activity spreads from motion artifacts, vasomotor fluctuations, and cardio-respiratory noise in human brain default mode network (DMN). Reproducible and classical DMN sources were identified using spatial ICA prior to advanced noise removal in order to assure that ICA converges to reproducible networks. Brain activity peaks were identified from parts of the

To account for the dissipative mechanisms found in nature, non-conservative elements have been incorporated in the energy redistribution rules of sandpiles and similar models of hazard phenomena. In this work, we found that incorporating non-conservation in the form of spatially-distributed sink sites affect both the external driving and internal cascade mechanisms of the sandpile. Increasing sink densities result in the loss of critical behavior, as evidenced by the gradual evolution of the avalanche size distribution from power-law (correlated) to exponential (random). For low density cases, we found no optimal configuration that will minimize the risk of producing large avalanches. Our model is inspired by analogs in natural avalanche systems, where non-conservative elements have an inherent spatial distribution.

Avalanche research is a dense science, with practitioners gathering books of intricate data and speaking a complicated language. While the scientific method is likely the best approach for learning more about the snowpack, terrain, weather and human actions that contribute to avalanches, effectively communicating that method is a challenge, especially as more skiers and snowboarders venture deeper into unmanaged terrain.. Professional skier and Alaska heliskiing pioneer Dean Cummings nine years ago developed a simpler approach to avalanche awareness that emphasizes the practical protocols that anyone can employ with their skis on their feet. While Cummings Be Snow Smart program now reaches 30,000 Alaskan students a year through the North American Outdoor Institute, the 46-year-old father of two is only now pushing it into the Lower 48.. This month Cummings breezed through Colorado as part of a 26-city tour that featured an hour-long presentation of Be Snow Smart and a partial showing of his ...
First of all, physicians should make sure that conditions at the site of the avalanche are safe (we lost too many rescuers lives in the line of duty due to secondary avalanches), Dr. Brugger said. Secondly, the physician should try to gather some information about the circumstances of the accident, the number of missed persons and the time when the avalanche was released to assess the duration of burial. If the buried victims are localised, the extrication from the snow masses should be done as carefully as possible and great attention to the patency of the airway should be paid. ...

An Italian rescue official has said that a number of people have been killed after a hotel was hit by an avalanche, apparently triggered by an earthquake on Wednesday. Rescuers battled overnight to reach the hotel close to the Gran Sasso mountain in the Abruzzo region. There are many deaths, Antonio Crocetta, the head of a mountain rescue team, was quoted as saying. Up to 30 people were in the Rigopiano hotel at the time of the avalanche. The roof partly collapsed and local residents in Farindola alerted emergency services. But a snowstorm and blocked routes made access to the hotel difficult and Italian media said the first rescuers only reached the hotel on skis at 04:00 (03:00 GMT) on Thursday. Rescuers said at least 20 tourists and seven staff had been inside the Rigopiano hotel when it was hit by the avalanche. The mountainous region of Central Italy was hit by a succession of four earthquakes on Wednesday and further tremors were reported overnight. The quakes came after the regions of ...

Avalanche emergency response should address current accident scenarios to optimize survival chances of victims and to keep rescuers safe. The purpose of this article is to present a basis for evaluation and necessary adjustments in dispatch, prioritization, and management of Norwegian avalanche rescue operations. This is the first peer-reviewed retrospective study of all Norwegian avalanche incidents registered by the two Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centers (JRCCs) in the period 1996-2017 that describes the characteristics and trends of rescue missions and victims. The Norwegian JRCCs have registered 720 snow avalanche events, with a total of 568 avalanche victims, of which 120 (21%) died. Including those fatally injured, a total of 313 avalanche victims in 209 accidents were treated as patients (55%), and we saw | 1 patient in 24% of these operations. Norwegian avalanche victims were partially or completely recovered prior to the arrival of rescuers in 75% (n = 117) of all rescue operations. In the

Abstract: Proposed an one-dimensional sandpile model which include avalanche probability, and performed computer simulation by cellular automata method. The results show that there are two critical points p1 and p2 when avalanche probability p transits from 0 to 1. The self-organized criticality(SOC) behavior can be found in the model when p12. There is a sharp transition between the trivial behaviour and the SOC behaviour in the model. When there is SOC, the SOC behaviour is universal, the two critical exponents are 1.50±0.02 and 1.58±0.15. With the model, the SOC phenomenon appearing in the experiment of one-demensional rice-pile is well explained.. ...

As the search for survivors at an Italian hotel buried during an avalanche continues, an investigation has been launched into a distress call and emails for help by the hotels owner. Triggered by a series of earthquakes, the avalanche claimed the lives of at least 14 people, with 15 still missing, according to reports. A staff of eight and 20 guests were reported to have been at the hotel at the time.. Bruno Di Tommaso, owner of hotel Rigopiano, a popular ski resort, reportedly sent an email asking for help from authorities in the nearby town of Pescara. The phones are out of service. Customers are terrified by the earthquakes and have decided to stay outdoors. We tried to do everything possible to calm them but, unable to leave because of blocked roads, they are willing to spend the night in the car, his email read.

The snowsports industry quickly picked up on the benefits of self inflating airbags for avalanche survival. Now it appears the surfing industry found the benefit of airbags as well. For those big wave surfers who might find themselves pinned under multiples waves after a wipeout, the new Billabong V1 inflatable wetsuit could be a lifesaver.. The inflatable wetsuit idea came to surfer Shane Dorian after a terrible wipeout at Mavericks, where he nearly drowned from being pinned under multiple waves. Shane turned to Billabong to see if they could create a prototype wetsuit out of his idea. Working with Mustang Survival Corporation, Billabong integrated a heavy duty, inflatable, polyurethane bladder into the back of one of their full body wetsuits. A large zippered pocket on the back of the wetsuit contains the bladder, which is attached to both an inflator and CO2 cartridge positioned between your shoulder blades. A pull cord runs over your shoulder to a handle on your upper chest. With a quick tug ...
