A Quantitative Approach to Predict Differential Effects of Anti-VEGF Treatment on Diffuse and Focal Leakage in Patients with Diabetic Macular Edema: A Pilot Study.
(Translational vision science & technology, 2017-03-21)
We use semiautomated segmentation of fluorescein angiography (FA) to determine whether anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME) differentially affects microaneurysm (MA)-associated ...
Emergency department point-of-care ultrasound in out-of-hospital and in-ED cardiac arrest.
Point-of-care ultrasound has been suggested to improve outcomes from advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), but no large studies have explored how it should be incorporated into ACLS. Our aim was to determine whether cardiac ...
Unexpected Cardiac MRI Findings in Patients Presenting to the Emergency Department for Possible Acute Coronary Syndrome.
(Critical pathways in cardiology, 2018-09)
Stress cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has become increasingly used in patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with symptoms concerning for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We hypothesized that CMR detects ...
Quantifying Gerrymandering in North Carolina
Using an ensemble of redistricting plans, we evaluate whether a given political districting faithfully represents the geo-political landscape. Redistricting plans are sampled by a Monte Carlo algorithm from a probability...
Inherited Retinal Degenerations: Current Landscape and Knowledge Gaps
(Translational Vision Science & Technology, 2018-07-18)
Neuronal correlates of serial decision-making in the supplementary eye field
Human behavior is influenced by serial decision-making: past decisions affect choices that set the context for selecting future options. A primate brain region that may be involved in linking decisions across time is the ...
Generalized Eigenfunctions for critical potentials with small perturbations
We estimate the behavior of the generalized eigenfunctions of critical Dirac operators (which are Dirac operators with eigenfunctions and/or resonances for $E=m$) plus small perturbations in the potential. The results also ...
Children’s Maternal Support-Seeking: Relations to Maternal Emotion Socialization Responses and Children’s Emotion Management
(Journal of Child and Family Studies, 2016-10)
Post-operative opioid pain management patterns for patients who receive hip surgery.
(Substance abuse treatment, prevention, and policy, 2017-03-16)
Identifying optimal, post-operative opioid management strategies is a priority of health providers and government agencies. At present, there are no studies we are aware of that have formally investigated opioid prescribing ...
Envisioning the Daoist body in the economy of cosmic power
