(1) Findings on plain X-ray of the abdomen, using the usual parameters of psoas and kidney shadows in the Nigerian, indicate that the two communities studied are similar but urinary calculi and urinary tract distortion are significantly more prominent in the community with the higher endemicity of urinary schistosomiasis.
(2) Aside from these characteristic findings of HCC, it was important to reveal the following features for the diagnosis of well differentiated type of small HCC: variable thickening or distortion of trabecular structure in association with nuclear crowding, acinar formation, selective cytoplasmic accumulation of Mallory bodies, nuclear abnormalities consisting of thickening of nucleolus, hepatic cords in close contact with bile ducts or blood vessels, and hepatocytes growing in a fibrous environment.
(3) Mild, significant improvement was noted in one of the hearing components, "attenuation," and an adverse effect was shown on "distortion," owing to noise.
(4) Malema has distorted his leftwing credentials with outrageous behaviour.
(5) Radiologists may encounter patients with fixed dental prostheses that may produce image distortion on MRI scans of the face and jaw.
(6) However, fractional addressing introduces distortion.
(7) The strongest field distortions and attractive forces occurred with 17-7PH stainless steel clips.
(8) This raises questions about police integrity and News International's power to distort procedure in a serious criminal matter.
(9) However, all these characteristics can be distorted if measured by means of a variable-proportion procedure, in which the amount of one primary is held constant while the amount of the other is varied in order to measure threshold.
(10) This could distort the relation between height and forced expiratory volume in 1s (FEV1) as age increases.
(11) The expression of such secondary and tertiary syphilis is commonly masked and distorted by the long-term effects of subcurative doses of antibiotics; in fact, late latent and tertiary syphilis produce symptoms and immunosuppression similar to the profile of AIDS.
(12) These results confirmed that 'punctuated' labeling was not an artefact due to a distortion of the cell's shape by having been dried on glass slides.
(13) The data derived have demonstrated the impairment of the function of the indicated system in the test subjects, associated with sexual behavior impairment in the form of exhibitionism which may form the biological basis for distortion of sexual self-consciousness.
(14) The nogalose and aminoglucose sugars lie in the minor and major grooves, respectively, of the distorted B-DNA double helix.
(15) The latter, which is external and solvent accessible, is associated with a distortion in the alpha-helix centered around Tyr33 which consists of a significant increase in the CO(i-4)-N(i) and CO(i-4)-NH(i) distances relative to those in the rest of the helix, as well as a significant departure in the phi, psi angles of Tyr33 relative to regular helical geometry.
(16) The authors suggest the use of minimal HP filtering so that phase-shift distortion is minimized and a larger response amplitude can be recorded.
(17) Fields said: "The assertions that Tom Cruise likened making a movie to being at war in Afghanistan is a gross distortion of the record... What Tom said, laughingly, was that sometimes, 'That's what it feels like.'"
(18) Therapeutic application of drugs containing propylene glycol 1.2 as a solvent may distort the results of forensic chemical detection of ethylene glycol from its oxidation products.
(19) When a meridional-size lens is used to provide magnification in the horizonal meridan for one eye the resulting stereopsis distortion is readily accounted for in the terms of the binocular disparity caused by changed angular relations.
(20) Synchronization of spontaneous otoacoustic emissions to a cubic distortion frequency fs = 2f1-f2 has been studied.
(n.) To grin.
(1) Girns declined over time when infants were united with the male.
(2) Infants girned more when with mothers or the male than when alone.
(3) Girns were given to both mothers and males, but more were given to mothers.
(4) Coos and girns are both affiliative vocalizations but are differentially modulated as infants cease cooing when they receive contact comfort.
