The aim of this work was to develop a novel artifact-free eye shield and evaluate its effect on the dose received by the eye lens and the resulting image quality in the CT examination of the head. A new material for an eye shield was synthesized from silicon rubber (SR) and lead (Pb) using a simple method. The percentage of Pb was varied from 0 to 5% wt. An anthropomorphic head phantom was scanned with and without the SR-Pb eye shield, and compared with a tungsten paper (WP) eye shield. The d…

The present research explored whether atheists managing death awareness would be effectively buffered by affirmations of supernatural and/or natural literal immortality. Prior data were reanalyzed, revealing ambiguous results, so further experiments were conducted. In Study 1 ( = 382), atheists were randomly assigned to a supernatural afterlife-confirmed (vs. afterlife-disconfirmed) prime, an MS (vs. control topic) prime, and then given an opportunity to engage in secular worldview defense. I…

Health promotion is often neglected by students during their nursing education, yet research indicates that self-care practices can significantly reduce compassion fatigue and burnout. An intervention study investigated strategies to increase exercise and hydration in baccalaureate nursing students.Using a convenience sample ( n = 73), data were collected through pre- and postsurveys of nursing students participating in an 8-week period that focused on strategies to increase walking and drink…

Given the importance of the health-care industry and the promise of health information systems, researchers are encouraged to build on the shoulders of giants as the saying goes. The health information systems field has a unique opportunity to learn from and extend the work that has already been done by the highly correlated information systems field. As a result, this research article presents a past, present and future meta-analysis of health information systems research in information syst…

Studies demonstrate that dynamic assessment (i.e., learning potential) improves the prediction of response to rehabilitation over static measures in individuals with schizophrenia. Learning potential is most commonly assessed using neuropsychological tests under a test-train-test paradigm to examine change in performance. Novel learning potential approaches using social cognitive tasks may have added value, particularly for the prediction of social functioning, but this area is unexplored. Th…

Microplastics are commonly found in marine ecosystems, but their distribution, prevalence, and impacts on resident fauna are still not well understood. Microplastics in coastal sediments expose invertebrate infauna to the risk of ingestion of plastic debris and associated toxicants. We assessed the prevalence of microplastics in beach sediments and ingested by Pacific mole crabs (Emerita analoga) at sandy beaches spanning >900 km of the California coast. Microplastics were present in sediment…

Clinical post conference (CPC) is a strategy for peer learning and reflective discourse after clinical experiences. Reflective and experiential learning practices are essential in nursing education to develop students' critical thinking. Innovative approaches to structure asynchronous online CPC using VoiceThread offer time for student reflection, while retaining the value of facial cues, tone, and peer-peer connections occurring during traditional face-to-face CPC.

We proposed and evaluated a water-equivalent diameter calculation without using a region of interest (ROI), (Dw,t) and compared it with the results of using a ROI fitted to the patient border (Dw,f). Evaluations were carried out on thoracic and head CT images. We found that the difference between Dw,t and Dw,f was within 5% for all images in the head region, and most images were within 5% (27 of the 30 patients, 90%) in the thoracic region. We also proposed a method to automatically detect an…

This paper examines the development and implementation of a health literacy/education station at a large free clinic in a metropolitan city in southern California. The station was made possible through a partnership between the leadership team at the clinic and senior nursing students at a large university located in southern California. This paper outlines the importance of health literacy, the partnership between the community health senior nursing students and faculty and a yearly 3-day he…

The purpose of this study was to introduce a new algorithm for automated measurement of the modulation transfer function (MTF) using an edge of a readily available phantom and to evaluate the effect of reconstruction filter and field of view (FOV) on the spatial resolution in the CT images.Our automated MTF measurement consisted of several steps. The center of the image was established and an appropriate region of interest (ROI) designated. The edge spread function (ESF) was determined, and a…
