Among all the clinical indications for which radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians,
neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists (and others examining disorders of
the brain) order and read brain PET scans, demand is greatest for those pertaining
to dementia and related disorders. This demand is driven by the sheer prevalence of
those conditions, coupled with the fact that the differential diagnosis for causes of
cognitive impairment is wide and often difficult to distinguish clinically.
PET-CT: A Case-Based Approach provides practical clinical examples of studies performed
with FDG on a state-of-the-art dedicated PET-CT device. Detailed histories
and correlative imaging findings are given in each case to demonstrate the level of
detail required for image interpretation and the capabilities of this instrumentation.
Nitrate, the most common form of nitrogen in surface and groundwater, is directly toxic to human health. In-
fants who drink water with high nitrate levels can develop an acute, life-threatening blood disorder called blue
baby syndrome. high nitrate levels in water can also affect thyroid function in adults and increase the risk of
Phosphorus stimulates explosive blooms of aquatic algae, including the especially dangerous cyanobacteria
(blue-green algae) that produce toxins that can be deadly to pets, livestock, wildlife – and people.
There are quite a few brand names out there creating drawing supplies. Some are for kids, some for school and some for semi- pro and pro use. My guess is if you're reading this you're looking for semi-pro to professional grade materials to get that performance and quality that you just can't get from Rose Art or Crayola. Not to say those aren't quality materials and later on in your explorations you may find yourself using these "childrens'" art supplies; but even then you still will want to have higher performance materials to use along with your crayons to...
Young women were asked if they wanted to work for pay right now, and what they

industry, such as working in a restaurant or store, or in the caring professions. Young
women said they wanted to do things to help their community, such as being a teacherís
aide, taking care of pets, babysitting or childcare, or working in the community centre.
Many had good ideas of things they could do to help them get a job, such as taking a
baby-sitting course, talking to family and...
Often businesses such as stores, restaurants, hotels, or theaters have policies that can exclude
people with disabilities. For example, a “no pets” policy may result in staff excluding people with
disabilities who use dogs as service animals. A clear policy permitting service animals can help
ensure that staff are aware of their obligation to allow access to customers using service
The work we do is performed with compassion, care, humanity
and humility. All my rabbits, when I worked with them years ago,
were stroked and petted every day. Their contribution changed the
understanding of ectopic pregnancy – the commonest cause of
maternal death worldwide. My genetically modiﬁed rodents breed
happily, and their offspring are indistinguishable from those of other
rats and mice. Medical researchers are compassionate people seeking
to alleviate pain and suffering. They are unlikely to do anything that is
unnecessary or cruel.
