This is the second edition of a well-received book that has been recommended for inclusion in any vascular library or vascular radiology suite. The first edition has been fully revised so as to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date account of vascular ultrasound that reflects recent advances. The emphasis remains on the clinical aspects most relevant to angiologists and vascular surgeons. Ultrasound anatomy is discussed, examination procedures explained, normal and pathological findings described, and the clinical impact of ultrasound assessed. Atlas sections present pertinent case material to illustrate typical ultrasound findings for both the more common vascular diseases and rarer conditions. This book will serve not only as an invaluable guide for beginners, but also as an indispensable reference for experienced sonographers, who will benefit from the detailed evaluation of the role of ultrasound as compared with other modalities and the discussion of ultrasound findings in their clinical context.
Diagnosis Beyond the Valley By R. A. Palmer This short science fiction story is a classic by author R. A. Palmer. Take two men and one girl-the eternal triangle-and mix well with an oscilloscope gone haywire. What comes out? With ingredients like these, the result is adventure, terror and, of course, romance. Transcribed from Other Worlds Science Stories Magazine, March, 1953 edition and converted to digital format by a community of volunteers. Extensive research did not uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on this publication was renewed. You may find it for free on the web.
With the rapid growth of scale of integration of VLSI chips and the need forreliable computers, fault diagnosis and fault tolerance have become important topics in chip design and manufacture. This book is intended to lead new researchers in the field to the frontier of some branches of the fault-tolerant computing field. The book presents the results of a research group working at Chongqing University, China, for the last twelveyears. It contains seven chapters that can be read independently of each other. Chapter 1 gives a mathematical introduction to four-valued logic and its applications to test generation, hazard identification, and transition logic. Chapter 2 summarizes work on the fault-diagnosis problem at the system level, with society diagnosis and an analog circuit as examples. Chapter 3 discusses the definition of a testability measure, introduces the synthesis problem for testability, and studies automatic design for testability at gate level and module level. Chapter 4 introduces the new NMRC (N-modular redundancy with comparing) technique and studies some optimal designs. Chapter 5 studies the fault-tolerance of interconnection switching networks and shows how networks can be designed to increase the tolerated number of faulty elements. Chapter 6 shows how fault-tolerance problems for multibus systems correspond to connectivity problems for hypergraphs and how optimal connectivity is achieved with BIB (balanced incomplete block) designs. Chapter 7 discusses TMR (triple modular redundancy) systems.
