Autopsy

View this topic in
An autopsy—also known as a post-mortem examination, necropsy (particularly as to non-human bodies), autopsia cadaverum, or obduction—is a highly specialized surgical procedure that consists of a thorough examination of a corpse to determine the cause and manner of death and to evaluate any disease or injury that may be present.

The "Last word" on Charles Babbage

IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, 1998

One can learn a lot about the later years of a person's life by examining his or her medical records. In the case of Charles Babbage, his reputation as "an irascible genius" can be understood much better if one knows that he suffered a number of physical ailments. In an attempt to shed some further light on the later life ...


Coil End Parts Development Using BEND and Design for MQXF by LARP

IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 2017

End parts are critical components for saddle-shaped coils. They have a structural function where the cables are deformed in order to cross over the magnet aperture. Based on the previous design of the US LARP program for 90-mm aperture quadrupoles (TQ/LQ) and 120 mm aperture quadrupoles (HQ/LHQ) using BEND, the coil ends of the low-β quadruples (MQXF) for the HiLumi ...

Multiresolution wavelet analysis of ERPs for the detection of Alzheimer's disease

Proceedings of the 19th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. 'Magnificent Milestones and Emerging Opportunities in Medical Engineering' (Cat. No.97CH36136), 1997

Alzheimer's disease, a neurological disorder usually seen in elderly people, is the most common of all cortical dementias. It can only be diagnosed with certainty via an autopsy. Neurologists usually diagnose Alzheimer's disease from symptoms; however, misdiagnosis can be a problem. Additional techniques to increase the accuracy of ante-mortem diagnoses would be useful. In this study, event related potentials (ERPs) ...

  • The "Last word" on Charles Babbage

    One can learn a lot about the later years of a person's life by examining his or her medical records. In the case of Charles Babbage, his reputation as "an irascible genius" can be understood much better if one knows that he suffered a number of physical ailments. In an attempt to shed some further light on the later life of this man, we present some of the medical reports produced after his death.

  • Coil End Parts Development Using BEND and Design for MQXF by LARP

    End parts are critical components for saddle-shaped coils. They have a structural function where the cables are deformed in order to cross over the magnet aperture. Based on the previous design of the US LARP program for 90-mm aperture quadrupoles (TQ/LQ) and 120 mm aperture quadrupoles (HQ/LHQ) using BEND, the coil ends of the low-β quadruples (MQXF) for the HiLumi LHC upgrade were developed. This paper shows the design of the MQXF coil ends, the analysis of the coil ends during the coil fabrication, the autopsy analysis of the coil ends, and the feedback to BEND parameters.

  • Four-dimensional Ultrasonography Measured Lung Volume in Predicting Pulmonary Hypoplasia of Fetus

    Objective: To observe the feasibility of virtual organ computer-aided analysis (VOCAL) technique in estimating the fetal lung volume, and to assess the diagnostic value of ultrasound fetal lung volume in fetal pulmonary hypoplasia (PH). Methods: A total of 31 fetuses (20-32 weeks) with abnomal diagnosed with prenatal ultrasonography were enrolled in this study. The autopsy and clnical diagnosis were permitted. The fetal lung volume was estimated with four- dimensional ultrasonography using VOCAL technique, the value of fetal lung volume in the diagnosis of fetal PH was evaluated. Results: The sensitivity value of fetal lung volume in diagnosing fetal PH was 81.1% and the accuracy ratio was 76.92%. Conclusion: The fetal lung volume can be estimated precisely with four-dimensional ultrasonography using VOCAL technique. Fetal lung volume may be useful in the prenatal diagnosis of fetal PH.

  • Multiresolution wavelet analysis of ERPs for the detection of Alzheimer's disease

    Alzheimer's disease, a neurological disorder usually seen in elderly people, is the most common of all cortical dementias. It can only be diagnosed with certainty via an autopsy. Neurologists usually diagnose Alzheimer's disease from symptoms; however, misdiagnosis can be a problem. Additional techniques to increase the accuracy of ante-mortem diagnoses would be useful. In this study, event related potentials (ERPs) of two groups of patients were acquired. One group had been diagnosed as having Alzheimer's disease and the other group as not having Alzheimer's disease. The ERPs were analyzed using multiresolution wavelet analysis techniques. The analyzed signals were then used to train a multilayer perceptron (MLP) neural network to distinguish the signals belonging to the two groups of patients. Initial results demonstrated the feasibility of this approach.

  • Analyzing Data from an Android Smartphone while Comparing between Two Forensic Tools

    Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science in which past events can be recreated using forensic tools for legal measures. This paper aims to analyze data from an Android smartphone while comparing a commercial and an open source forensic tools. Paraben E3:DS and Autopsy forensic tools were compared to know how well they perform in analyzing data extracted from an Android smartphone. Through this work, it was found that the commercially available Paraben E3:DS outperformed the Autopsy open source forensic tool. It is also concluded that forensic investigators should stick with already well- established guidelines of digital forensics so that evidence can be accepted in the court of law.

This paper will give details of the data entry procedures and examples of interesting research applications.

  • A neural-fuzzy model of recall based on neuropathological findings in Alzheimer's patients

    The problem chosen for this work is the recognition of faces. The inability to recognize familiar faces is a common symptom in many Alzheimer's patients. The author describes an initial effort to develop a computer-based model of recall using artificial neural nets and fuzzy logic. The computer-based neural net model is then altered in a way suggested by the neuropathological findings in brain autopsies of senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT) patients. The ability of the computer model to correctly recognize images during a progressive alteration of the neural net is reported. The hope is that this model can serve as a tool to study the effects of SDAT on patients and possibly lend support to the early diagnosis of the disease.<<ETX>>

  • PIXE and the Mysteries of Legionnaires' Disease

    We describe the use of proton-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) to analyse the nickel concentrations of the autopsy specimens from victims of Legionnaires' disease. We show that the high nickel concentrations in the lung specimens from the first recognized Legionnaires' cases in Philadelphia in 1976 were due to contamination during the autopsies. Recently we have used PIXE to show that the selenium concentrations in the sera of the acutely ill Legionnaires' patients are significantly lower than in their matching convalescent-phase sera. This finding may be related to the patient's response to the disease or to the specific characteristics of the Legionella pnewnophila itself. Studies show that the disease is not a rare illness but a worldwide one. General criteria concerning specimen collection are described.
