(n.) The distance of the center of figure of a body, as of an eccentric, from an axis about which it turns; the throw.
(1) Periosteal chondroma is an uncommon benign cartilagenous lesion, and its importance lies primarily in its characteristic radiographic and pathologic appearance which should be of assistance in the differential diagnosis of eccentric lesions of bones.
(2) Adaptation at 10 deg eccentricity yielded slightly higher threshold elevations than for central vision.
(3) An in vitro, eccentric arterial stenosis model was created using 15 canine carotid arteries cannulated with silicone plugs containing special pressure-transducing catheters designed to measure pressure directly, within the stenosis.
(4) • Gaddafi's many eccentricities, including phobias about flying over water and staying above ground floor level.
(5) These data suggest that older adults experience greater muscle damage following eccentric exercise than young subjects, which may be due in part to the smaller muscle mass and lower VO2max seen in older men.
(6) Detection thresholds at 10 Hz and high grating contrasts were approximately 11-15 arcsec in the fovea and 37-47 arcsec at 30 degrees eccentricity.
