[en] This book introduces nouns, articles, verbs, infinitives, particles, gerund, adjectives, adverbs, auxiliary verbs, prepositions, and conjunctions. It especially shows in detail nouns, verbs, prepositions, and other usages. It explains by comparing a few words such as customer and client, source and origin, height and altitude, top and summit, circle and ring, evidence and proof, allow and permit, generate and develop, tie and bind, mature and ripen, hang and suspend, treat, deal with and manipulate, jump, leap, vault, spring and hop, lift and raise, above, over, on and up, and below, under, beneath and down.
[en] Radiation oncology in Slovakia is placed in precarious position. There is shortage of technology for modern conformal radiotherapy on one side. Paradoxically, technological advances have diverted the specialty away from traditional clinical care on the other side. While technology supplementation and health care infrastructure optimization could not be readily resolved, the focus and status of this field of medicine remains in hands of radiation oncologists.

[en] This is a personal recollection of the early development of modern metamaterials as seen from the perspective of my GEC-Marconi team and collaborators, listed in the references Pendry et al 1996 Phys. Rev. Lett. 76 4773, Pendry et al 1998 J. Phys.: Condens. Matter. 10 4785. (paper)
[en] The paper relates to the consequences of domestic policy with the focus on new implementation models used for cost reduction of offshore development projects in Norway. The paper puts the attention to the consequences from implementation models on industrial niches (subcontractors)

[en] The meanwhile established generation of 16-slice CT systems enables routine sub-millimeter imaging at short breath-hold times. Clinical progress in the development of multidetector row CT (MDCT) technology beyond 16 slices can more likely be expected from further improvement in spatial and temporal resolution rather than from a mere increase in the speed of volume coverage. We present an evaluation of a recently introduced 64-slice CT system (SOMATOM Sensation 64, Siemens AG, Forchheim, Germany), which uses a periodic motion of the focal spot in longitudinal direction (z-flying focal spot) to double the number of simultaneously acquired slices. This technique acquires 64 overlapping 0.6 mm slices per rotation. The sampling scheme corresponds to that of a 64 x 0.3 mm detector, with the goal of improved longitudinal resolution and reduced spiral artifacts. After an introduction to the detector design, we discuss the basics of z-flying focal spot technology (z-Sharp trademark). We present phantom and specimen scans for performance evaluation. The measured full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the thinnest spiral slice is 0.65 mm. All spiral slice widths are almost independent of the pitch, with deviations of less than 0.1 mm from the nominal value. Using a high-resolution bar pattern phantom (CATPHAN, Phantom Laboratories, Salem, NY), the longitudinal resolution can be demonstrated to be up to 15 lp/cm at the isocenter independent of the pitch, corresponding to a bar diameter of 0.33 mm. Longitudinal resolution is only slightly degraded for off-center locations. At a distance of 100 mm from the isocenter, 14 lp/cm can be resolved in the z-direction corresponding to a bar diameter of 0.36 mm. Spiral ''windmill'' artifacts presenting as hyper- and hypodense structures around osseous edges are effectively reduced by the z-flying focal spot technique. Cardiac scanning benefits from the short gantry rotation time of 0.33 s, providing up to 83 ms temporal resolution with 2-segment ECG-gated reconstruction. (orig.)
