Transfontanelle ultrasonography of infant brain: analysis of findings in 114 patients in Benin City, Nigeria. (4/12)

OBJECTIVES: To analyse the pattern of findings in sonographic examination of infant brains. SETTING: Radiology Department of a University Teaching Hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The ultrasound request cards, reports and case notes of 114 consecutive term infants who underwent transfontanelle ultrasonography over a four-year period (between 1st May 2000 and 31st April 2004) were retrospectively analysed. The transfontanelle ultrasonographies were done using a two dimensional Sonoace 1500 (Medison Inc, South Korea 1995) ultrasound scanner fitted with 6.5 megahertz (MHz) curvilinear small head probe. The scans were done in both coronal and sagittal sections applying the standard techniques. RESULT: Atotal of 114 infants were seen in the study period with male to female ratio of 1:1. Sixty eight patients (59.65%) presented within the first 2 months of age. Hydrocephalus 34 (29.04%), seizure disorders 16 (14.04%) and suspected intracranial bleeding 19 (16.67%) constituted over half of the presenting complaints. The result showed that 54 patients (47.37%) had normal findings, 43 (37.72%) had hydrocephalus of which in 25 (21.93%) it was communicating while in 18 (15.79%) it was non-communicating 6 (5.26%) had cephalohaematoma, 5 (4.39%) had encephalcoele, 4 (3.51%) had periventricular leukomalacia, and 2 (1.75%) had subgaleal cyst. CONCLUSION: Transfontanelle ultrasonography is a useful technique for diagnosis of lesions within the infant brain. Hydrocephalus is the most frequent reason for request of transfontanelle ultrasound scan and also the most frequent abnormal finding.  (+info)

Brain herniation in a neonate. (5/12)

Brain herniation is generally thought to be unlikely to occur in newborns due to the presence of the patent fontanelles and cranial sutures. A review of the literature published from 1993 to 2008 via MEDLINE search revealed no reports on neonatal brain herniation from intracranial tumour. We report a preterm Malay male infant born via elective Caesarean section for antenatally diagnosed intracerebral tumour, which subsequently developed herniation. Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging showed features that were compatible with a large complex intracranial tumour causing mass effect and gross hydrocephalus. Tumour excision was scheduled when the infant was two weeks old. Unfortunately, on the morning of the surgery, he developed signs of brain herniation and had profuse tumour haemorrhage during the attempted excision. Histopathological examination revealed an embryonal tumour, possibly an atypical rhabdoid/teratoid tumour. This case illustrates that intracranial tumours in newborns can herniate and should therefore be closely monitored.  (+info)

Anterior fontanelle size in healthy Iranian neonates on the first day of life. (7/12)

There is limited data in the literature on the normal size of the anterior fontanelle. This cross- sectional study was to determine normal values of anterior fontanelle size on the first day of life, using standard methods. Anterior fontanelle size was measured in 400 term and healthy neonates delivered at the Shariati Hospital, Tehran, Iran. Examination included assessment of head circumference, anterior fontanelle size, weight, length. Type of delivery was also recorded. The mean size of anterior fontanelle was 25.34 +/- 13.27 mm, and it was established in both genders, 26.70 +/- 13.19 mm in boys, and 23.67 +/- 13.20mm in girls. A significant difference between the mean anterior fontanelle size in boys and girls was found (P=0.023). There was no significant difference in anterior fontanelle size between the infants born with a normal vaginal delivery and those with cesarean-section (P=0.08). There was found a significant negative correlation between the mean size of anterior fontanelle size with both weight and height (P<0.05). No significant correlation was found between mean size of anterior fontanelle and head circumference or with gestational age of infant (P>/=0.05). Our results proved possible to define a references range and centile chart. The method used is simple and accurate and easy used in the routine neonatal examination.  (+info)

Preterm screening by transfontanelar ultrasound - results of a 5 years cohort study. (8/12)

OBJECTIVES: Intracranial hemorrhages (ICH) might be the cause of significant psycho-motor or cognitive impairment in preterm babies. A 5 year cohort study performed in the IOMC was aimed at determining the prevalence and proportion of the main types of ICH diagnosed by transfontanelar (TF) ultrasound among admitted preterms, along with the neuro-developmental effects on a 12 month follow-up period. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In the above mentioned period all enrolled newborns were examined by TF ultrasound according to a common standardized protocol. The 4 grade Papile ICH classification was used for all examined subjects. In order to determine the potential neurological sequels we performed a 12 month neurological follow-up of all 292 patients in the study group. RESULTS: The prevalence of all types ICH diagnosed by systematic TF ultrasound was 20.4 %. The most prevalent type of ICH was peri-intraventricular: 40% grade I and 33 % grade II, with no major neurological sequels For both the correlation to the neurological outcome was statistically significant (p < 0.05). Severe neurological sequels were associated with grade III and IV, but the correlation was found to be statistically significant (p < 0.05) only for grade IV hemorrhages. A severe neurological outcome was of statistical significance only for the cerebellar hemorrhage outcome, although a similar pattern was also observed for the thalamic hemorrhages. CONCLUSION: Systematic TF screenings for preterm is useful for early diagnosis and staging which might improve the management of rehabilitation therapies, and provide appropriate information on the disease outcome as well as influencing the quality of parental counseling.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: Cranial sutures and fontanelles can be reliably demonstrated using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound with rendering. Our objective was to assess the repeatability and validity of fontanelle surface area measurement on rendered 3D images. METHODS: This was an in-vitro phantom validation study. Four holes, representing fontanelles, were cut on a flat vinyl tile. The phantom was scanned in a test-tank by two sonographers, at four different depths and using two different 3D sweep directions. The surface areas were measured on scan images and also directly from the phantom for comparison. Coefficients of variation (CVs), intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) and Bland-Altman plots were used for repeatability analysis. Validity was expressed as the percentage difference of the measured area from the true surface area. RESULTS: Validity of measurement was satisfactory with a mean percentage difference of - 5.9% (median = - 3.5%). The 95% limits of agreement were - 23.9 to 12.1%, suggesting that
The skull is made up of many bones, 8 in the skull itself and 14 in the face area. They join together to form a solid, bony cavity that protects and supports the brain. The areas where the bones join together are called the sutures.. The bones are not joined together firmly at birth. This allows the head to change shape to help it pass through the birth canal. The sutures get minerals added to them over time and harden, firmly joining the skull bones together.. In an infant, the space where 2 sutures join forms a membrane-covered soft spot called a fontanelle (fontanel). The fontanelles allow for growth of the brain and skull during an infants first year.. There are normally several fontanelles on a newborns skull. They are located mainly at the top, back, and sides of the head.

The word fontanel comes from the French fontaine for fountain. The medical term fontanel is a soft spot of the skull. The soft spot is soft precisely because the cartilage there has not yet hardened into bone between the skull bones. There are normally two fontanels, both in the midline of the skull, one (the anterior fontanel) well in front of the other (the posterior fontanel). ...

A newborns shoulders and hips are narrow, the abdomen protrudes slightly, and the arms and legs are relatively short. The average birth weight of a full-term newborn is approximately 7 ½ lbs.(3.2 kg), but is typically in the range of 5.5-10 pounds (2.7-4.6 kg). The average total body length is 14-20 inches (35.6-50.8 cm), although premature newborns may be much smaller. The Apgar score is a measure of a newborns transition from the uterus during the first minutes of life. A newborns head is very large in proportion to the rest of the body, and the cranium is enormous relative to his or her face. While the adult human skull is about 1/8 of the total body length, the newborns is about 1/4. At birth, many regions of the newborns skull have not yet been converted to bone, leaving soft spots known as fontanels. The two largest are the diamond-shaped anterior fontanel, located at the top front portion of the head, and the smaller triangular-shaped posterior fontanel, which lies at the back of ...
Fontanelles are the soft spots on an infants head where the bony plates that make up the skull have not yet come together. It is normal for infants to have these soft spots, which can be seen and felt on the top and back of the head. Fontanelles that are abnormally large may indicate a medical condition ...
The average head circumference at birth is 33-35 cm and increases about 2 cm per month. Head circumference should be measured at each visit and plotted on a growth chart. Although head size often follows body growth, small infants may have large heads and vice versa. It is not unusual for the head circumference to cross percentiles during the first year of life, but if the infant has a large head, other family members heads should be measured and plotted and a full developmental assessment and examination should be performed. Large heads are often a familial feature. The posterior fontanel usually closes at 6-8 weeks of life and the anterior fontanel between 12-18 months.. ...
Reactivity of lime (CaO, CaO-MgO) is a function of surface area and pore space which is related to temperature or time of calcination or both. The development and distribution of pore space in calcined stone is poorly understood. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) now allows observation of porosity differences in the oxides calcined from the same stone at various temperatures and times.. The oxides formed from five limestones calcined in commercial kilns (four calcitic and one dolomitic) and one dolomitic stone calcined in a laboratory furnace were examined with the SEM, and their surface areas were determined by the Brunauer, Emmett, and Teller (BET) method using Krypton gas.. One of the stones was subjected to several different kiln conditions. The SEM made it possible to record the changes of the low-porosity quarry stone to a very porous oxide as it was calcined. However, with increased kiln time, the resulting CaO crystals coalesce, increasing pore space, and, with continued ...

Proportionate growth retardation (prenatal and postnatal) associated with delayed bone age is the most common feature. Medullary stenosis of the long bones is common, and delayed closure of the anterior fontanelle occurs in 90% (fontanelle may remain open into teenage years). Sixty percent of patients have convulsions and tetany. Fatal outcome of these convulsions has been reported. Ophthalmic abnormalities are common: most frequently microphthalmia and hyperopia, as well as strabismus, congenital glaucoma, and pseudopapilledema. Intelligence usually is normal, but psychomotor delay may be present. ...
These patients typically die within the first year of life (the mean age at death is approximately 3 months). The clinical findings can be quite variable, ie, not all the following findings will be present in any one patient. Neurologic signs may include severe muscular hypotonia and psychomotor retardation, absent tendon, abdominal, startle and withdrawal reflexes, agenesis of the corpus callosum, absent olfactory bulbs with partial arhinencephaly, and failure to thrive secondary to hypotonia with sucking and swallowing difficulties. The head has been described as light-bulb-shaped, referring to the high forehead with brachycephaly and persistence of the metopic suture. Closure of the anterior and posterior fontanelles may be delayed. Facial dysmorphic signs may consist of hypertelorism with hypoplastic supraorbital ridges, congenital glaucoma with corneal clouding, nystagmus, cataract, low-set, dysplastic and posteriorly rotated ears, short saddle nose, micrognathia, and high arched ...
A baby girl is born at term to a 34-year-old multigravid mother by cesarean delivery for decreased fetal movement. Prenatal laboratory studies are unremarkable, and prenatal ultrasounds done at 10, 12, 20, 28, and 30 weeks are all normal. Delivery is complicated by meconium-stained amniotic fluid, for which the infant requires oral suctioning and some blow by oxygen. Apgars are 8 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes. The infant is sent to the general care nursery.. On examination, the birth weight is 2.9 kg (25%), length is 49 cm (50%), and head circumference is 36 cm (95%). Otherwise, her examination is unremarkable.. On the second day after birth, the infant is reported by the mother to be sleepier and not feeding as well. Her exam is notable for a tense anterior fontanelle, widely spaced posterior sutures, and head circumference increased to 37 cm (,95%). A head ultrasound is performed and shows a large echogenic mass measuring 9 cm in the left cerebral hemisphere, with resultant obstructive ...

Tissue engineered scaffolds were constructed to mimic the native extracellular matrix (ECM) and promote cell migration of keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Electrospinning technology was used to fabricate these nano-scale matrices that consist of varying compositions and fiber diameters. The purpose of this study was to examine how average fiber diameter and scaffold composition regulate cell migration. Odyssey infrared scanning evaluated this on a macroscopic level, whereas confocal microscopy focused on a more microscopic approach. The expression of proteases released into the culture media was also examined. The results from this study suggest that fiber diameter increases as a function of electrospinning starting concentration. Altering the composition by adding a basement membrane-like material, Matrigel, does not statistically affect the average fiber diameter. Fibroblast migration is greater on collagen scaffolds than gelatin scaffolds based on surface area measurements. Confocal images
Nutraceuticals require many of the same controls and monitors as pharmaceutical products. Particle size analysis, zeta potential stability analysis, and surface area measurement can be used to optimize nutraceutical product and process performance.
Happy Spring! Isnt the weather amazing? It has been so awesome to be able to have the windows open, enjoy the fresh air, and get outside a little bit. Mostly we dont venture farther than the driveway, or the lake to feed the fish with Addie, but today we made the trek to Main Campus again to see Meghans neurosurgeon. Her fontanelles have become sunken- a good thing in Meghans case- but the sutures in her skull have started to override, which is not so good. Since babies are born with bones in the skull that arent fused yet, if they override they are at risk for fusing too early. So, we made an adjustment on her shunt setting again (slowing down the drainage) and we return in 2 weeks to see how things are progressing. In the meantime we watch her fontanelles, her head circumference, and how shes acting to make sure things are going well. Dr. R. says her case is a little tricky since she has hydrocephalus, but she also has colpocephaly (an abnormal formation of the brain tissue) which she ...
Most babies do not show any outward sign that an IVH has occurred and it is identified during routine screening using ultrasound which is carried out at the cotside, through the soft spot on their head (where the bones havent fused together yet) called the fontanelle. Other ways of imaging the body (such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI) are sometimes recommended but they are only used in specialist centres when the babys condition is stable. With more severe grades of IVH, signs and symptoms may sometimes be seen. Where flow of CSF is blocked, as the ventricles enlarge, swelling of fontanelle may be noticeable. Other symtoms can also include abnormally low blood pressure and heart rate, seizures, anaemia, apnoea, decreased muscle tone and reflexes. Other tests may be helpful in determining the effects of IVH such as EEG, video recording of the babys movements and tests of visual function ...

Author: SUMATHI.P, SHANMUGHA VADIVU.R. Category: Physiology. [Download PDF]. Abstract:. Background: Hypertension is a chronic condition of concern due to its role in causing coronary heart disease, stroke and other vascular complications. Adverse association of cardiovascular risk factors in children and young adults with a parental history of the disease is well recognized. Body mass and obesity relate strongly with the development of higher percentiles of blood pressure (BP). Objective: The present study is aimed to find out any observed differences in the BP, Body mass index (BMI) and Waist-hip ratio in young adults of hypertensive parents. Methods: A descriptive cross sectional study was done on 100 Ist year students of a college. After getting the Institutional Ethical Committee clearance and informed consent from all the participants, BP, BMI and Waist-hip ratio in the apparently healthy children of hypertensive and normotensive parents were measured and compared. Children of the ...

Checks on babies after birth include facial features and body proportions, limbs and spine, hands, umbilical cord, weight, temperature, length and head circumference.. Within 24 hours of birth, a check is made for the passing of meconim: a black, sticky, tar-like bowel movement.. Further checks are made on earrs, the fontanelles, the abdomen, the gentals, the hip joints, the eyes and nose and the nerves and muslces.. At 7 to 10 days, the newborn blood spot screening is done. It tests for: cystic fibrosis, sickle-cell aneamia and thalassaemia, PKU and thyroid function. If the baby has PKU, a special diet is needed to prevent brain damage. For thyroid function, treatment prevents abdnormal growth and development.. 6 weeks after birth, the mother has a post-natal apointment to check her emotional state, that her uterus has shrunk back to size and is tucked backed in to the peleivs, any sitches have dissolved/healed, her blood pressure is normal and for post-natal bleeding. ...
A 6-month-old boy presents via the paediatricians with progressively enlarging head circumference. His head now measures 51.5cm, which makes it far above the 95th centile (5th to 95th centile range 41.5-46cm). There is no medical history of note; he was born by ventouse delivery at 38 weeks and is developmentally normal. Examination finds that there is a bulging fontanelle but no loss of upgaze, and the boy seems alert and normal apart from his head, which is clearly enlarged. ...
Ohhhh I almost became a pharmacist Nataly! I worked in a retail pharmacy in MA for a while, then in the pharmacy in Childrens Hospital in Boston. I LOVED that job so very much! I was accepted to the MA College Of Pharmacy and was supposed to start school that Sept. (1993), but in August I blew a disk in my back. Thanks to a bunch of errors from two doctors (my then PCP and the orthopedist he sent me to..such as not ordering any tests until I literally couldnt move my left leg at all and had lost bladder control) the herniation became a rupture, embedding pieces of the disk in my sciatic nerve root at L4-5, then the disk herniated again, hiding the rupture from the MRI. It was found during surgery to shave off the bulge (Laminectomy). I also had pelvic pain back then, but they were saying it was radiating from my lower back but now my doctors think it was my SI joints since they were not in great shape then either after delivering my daughter at just under 10 pounds with only 1 fontanel that ...
15 day old boy, 3180 gram born with sacral mengingocele, s/p repair. Two days ago, had a shunt placed from brain to belly to drain excess fluid. No IV access, foley cath from surgery that will be pulled later that day. He is the youngest of 6 kids, and has a 13yo brother who also has spina bifida. It was enough to make me want to take my folic acid right that second, even I never plan to get pregnant again. It wasnt until the end of the shift that I realized that his face really was all scrunched forward like that, it wasnt just because he was laying on his belly with his head turned to the right for the whole shift. Seven seconds into the shift, the nurse tells me to feel his head, and his fontanels. Id call those full, but not bulging, she says. And here, these sutures, open wide is what Id document for them. And when I say sutures, I mean the places where the bones of the skull should meet and knit together. I felt like I was touching his brain through his skin. He had never exhibited ...

Selected for The Best Australian Science Writing 2014. AS SOON AS the midwife placed my newborn son on my belly, moments after a twenty-three-hour labour brought him into the world, I started counting his fingers and toes. I checked his fontanelle wasnt too big. Or too small. Or bulging. Or sunken. I looked closely for a squint, unusual lumps on his ears, a receding chin, any sign of respiratory distress. I ran my hand slowly along his spine. Most parents I have spoken to over the years describe the first meeting with their baby as it emerges into the word in radiant or spiritual terms; a moment of exaltation. I, on the other hand, spent those precious moments at the starting line of our life together, scanning my sons tiny 2.9 kilogram body for imperfections.. Its how I roll. I have dedicated much of my working life to routinely checking newborn babies. I always set aside a half-hour slot so I have time to examine them thoroughly. Sometimes because of this I can run quite late, keeping the ...
A fontanelle is a membranous space that has not ossified yet and is found in newborn babies between the bones of the skull that is covered by thick membranes.

Dermoid cysts of the head and neck usually occur during childhood and relatively rare lesions over the anterior fontanelle. Dermoid cyst is a pathologic term for a cyst lined by squamous epithelium containing skin appendages (hair follicles, sebaceous, and sweat glands). Pathologically dermoid cysts, have been classified in three groups a) Congenital dermoid cyst of the teratoma type which is derived from the embryogenic epithelium, confined to the ovaries and testis b) Acquired implantation dermoid cyst formed by cells implanted traumatically into deeper structures c) Congenital dermoid inclusion cyst (CDIC) resulting from the inclusion of displaced dermal cells along the embryonic fusion line. CDIC over the anterior fontanel is an uncommon cystic lesion. It is a developmental tumor due to inclusion of dermal elements within the neuroaxis between the third and fifth week of the embryogenesis when the ectoderm folds into the neural tube [3]. In 1971, Adeloye & Odeku [4] were the first to report ...
Authors: Goldberg EM.. A previously healthy 7-month-old male presented to the emergency department with fever and a bulging anterior fontanelle. A computed tomographic scan of the head suggested mild communicating hydrocephalus. Lumbar puncture was performed, which revealed a normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cell count and glucose concentration, but a markedly elevated opening pressure. DNA polymerase chain reaction for herpes simplex virus performed on CSF was negative; CSF bacterial cultures were without growth. DNA polymerase chain reaction for human herpes virus 6 was strongly positive in serum. Fever and bulging fontanelle resolved within 24 hours. A presumptive diagnosis of transient intracranial hypertension of infancy was made, a form of benign idiopathic intracranial hypertension that mimics the presentation of serious intracranial pathology.. ...

Craniofacial abnormalities included a long narrow head with communicating hydrocephalus, prominent forehead, large anterior fontanelle, midface hypoplasia, proptosis and hypertelorism, grooved chin and small upturned nose, and mandibular hypoplasia (micrognathia). Musculoskeletal abnormalities included hooked clavicles, 13 pairs of ribs, large hands and feet with long, slender fingers, widened metaphyses, and square-shaped vertebral bodies, which developed over time as a sign of muscular hypotonia. Both patients were developmentally delayed and suffered from gastroesophageal reflux and recurrent respiratory infections. The only cardiac finding was a functional systolic murmur. ...
Nickel/alumina catalyst promoted by Li2O and La2O3 was prepared via glycine nitrate process (GNP) for the first time. The catalyst was characterized by BET specific surface area measurement, powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), H2 temperature programmed reduction (H2-TPR), scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and catalytic performance measurements for partial oxidation of methane, comparison between the catalysts with the same composition while prepared via different methods and initial catalyst stability were also investigated. The results indicated that there was a strong interaction between the NiO and Al2O3 phase in the catalyst prepared via GNP. Alumina existed in mainly in a ? form, while spinel phase of nickel aluminate also occurred. The catalyst showed superior catalytic performances, e.g. higher methane conversion and selectivity to CO under similar working conditions over the one with same composition prepared by sol-gel and incipient-to-wetness ...
Titanium dioxide − bismuth tungstate composite materials were prepared by pulsed DC reactive magnetron sputtering of bismuth and tungsten metallic targets in argon/oxygen atmosphere onto anatase and rutile titania nanoparticles. The use of an oscillating bowl placed beneath the two magnetrons arranged in a co-planar closed field configuration enabled the deposition of bismuth tungstate onto loose powders, rather than a solid substrate. The atomic ratio of the bismuth/tungsten coatings was controlled by varying the power applied to each target. The effect of the bismuth tungstate coatings on the phase, optical and photocatalytic properties of titania was investigated by X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area measurements, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy and an acetone degradation test. The latter involved measurements of the rate of CO2 evolution under visible light irradiation of ...
Using surface analysis, simultaneous effects of temperature (260-380ºC) and ethanol concentration (0-1%) on dimethyl ether (DME) selectivity, yields of hydrocarbon and DME, and methanol conversion were investigated in methanol dehydration reaction over γ-Al2O3 catalyst. Methanol conversion and yield of hydrocarbon/DME were found to be significantly affected by temperature and the temperature-ethanol concentration interactions. In addition, DME selectivity and yield of DME were found to be influenced by the process temperature, and ethanol concentration as well as their interactions. BET surface area measurement and scanning electron microscopy technique (SEM) confirmed that the catalyst deactivation was intensified at higher temperatures by increasing ethanol concentration. Using statistical regression, a mathematical model was developed, and then validated, to describe simultaneous effects of temperature and feedstock ethanol concentration on DME selectivity. Although the model was statistically
Introduction As immunoassay and Eliza are used nowadays for checking levels of FSH and estradiol, the role of vaginal acidity as a sign of responding vaginal cells to estrogen has been forgotten, although its role in this field is known. The purpose of this study was to assess the sensitivity of vaginal Ph in diagnosis of menopause, estradiol levels, hot flashes and vaginal dryness that are frequent problems. Methods This descriptive - cross sectional study included 250 women aged 45- 60 years. Population sampling was nonrandom and inclusion factors included absence of hormonal therapy, absence of vaginal douche or coitus during the past three days. Vaginal Ph, FSH and estradiol levels were determined. The analysis was carried out using SPSS. For comparing two variables, Spearman, Pearson and chi-square tests were used. Results The mean age of the population sample was 50.4 years(SD ± 4.4) of which 45.7% were menopause and 54.3% were in menopausal transition. Mean vaginal Ph was 5.57±0.66. The

The problem of non-contact surface defect area measurement at complex-shape objects under videoendoscopic control is considered. Major factors contributing to the measurement uncertainty are analyzed for the first time. The proposed method of accuracy analysis is based on the evaluation of 3D coordinates of surface points from 2D projections under assumption of projective camera model and Mahalanobis distance minimization in the image plane. Expressions for area measurement error caused by sum-of-triangles approximation are obtained analytically for practically important cases of cylindrical and spherical surfaces. It is shown that the magnitude of this error component for a single triangle does not exceed 1% for the real values of parameters of the endoscopic imaging system. Expressions are derived for area measurement uncertainty evaluation on arbitrary shape surfaces, caused by measurement errors of 3D coordinates of individual points with and without a priori information about surface shape.

It seems likely that language developed from some form of voluntary intentional communication. This would suggest that language is less instinctual and more of a learned habit or skill which uses a fair bit of real estate in the more conscious and voluntary parts of the brain.
