    This article is based on an assessment that indicates the low effectiveness of the actions and programmes of social responsibility to the less impact than in business and should not build the value they expected. Focussing on this issue in cases of relationship between oil and gas companies with fishing communities, the scene of conflict is chronic and there is a fragile relationship in terms of confidence. It has been further that the approaches and methods commonly used are not properly aligned to the realities and characteristics of artisanal fisheries. In this context, we present an innovative process of relationship between the company El Paso Oil and Gas of Brazil and fishing communities in the region of Baixo-Sul, Bahia. The strategy used effectively consolidated the relationship of confidence between the company and the fishing communities around the area of exploration, rescuing the self-esteem, alleviate the marginalisation and making visible a productive sector of extreme importance. Furthermore, the capabilities and skills, both communities as the government and other companies to take more solid and ongoing commitments in the process of co-management require specific efforts in the strengthening of an institutional arrangement and the formation of social capital to continue advancing in concept work.

  2. De la vigilancia convencional al monitoreo participativo

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jaime Breilh

    Full Text Available La necesidad de transformar el monitoreo de la salud de un instrumento funcional al sistema dominante de poder en una herramienta del poder colectivo, y de negociación del desarrollo de la salud laboral y el bienestar, implica la urgente transformación de la vieja vigilancia epidemiológica en un monitoreo participativo. Debe superarse el sistema convencional de información en salud, que observa fundamentalmente los "factores de enfermedad" y sus efectos mórbidos aislados, invisibilizando los procesos de determinación integrales. Este trabajo analiza el proceso de derrota de los derechos sociales y laborales, lo cual sitúa el desafío planteado en un escenario de profundo retroceso social y asalto a los derechos conquistados por los/as trabajadores/as en años de lucha. Con el propósito de esclarecer dicho argumento, al autor comienza contrastando los modelos de vigilancia clásicos, algunas propuestas transicionales, hasta arribar al monitoreo participativo. La aplicación de la categoría "perfil epidemiológico" permite sistematizar los dominios y dimensiones del monitoreo y establecer los sujetos sociales de esa mirada crítica e intercultural del pueblo sobre su salud, mediante la construcción de una matriz de procesos críticos.

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available El objetivo general de este trabajo estriba en desarrollar el tema del voluntariado de mayores como un claro ejemplo de envejecimiento participativo y saludable. En la primera parte se definen los conceptos utilizados y se refleja el «envejecimiento activo» como expresión de una necesidad social más que sólo una tendencia en boga. La participación social de los mayores es destacada como interés prioritario tanto desde las instituciones políticas como socio-económicas. En la segunda, se ofrecen algunos datos e informaciones que ayudan a dibujar una panorámica internacional sobre la situación de los mayores como voluntarios. En la tercera se desarrollan las distintas actividades, tipología, opiniones y vivencias de voluntarios mayores en nuestro contexto español. Al final, entre otras conclusiones y propuestas, se subraya la relevancia de continuar y hacer realidad un «envejecimiento participativo», pero, eso sí, evitando el derrumbe hacia la «explotación» humana para construir una vejez más saludable y justa acorde con los principios básicos de toda sociedad democrática.

    Full Text Available The research project entitled “rapid prototyping of custom-made bone-forming tissue engineering constructs” (RAPIDOS is one of the three unique projects that are the result of the first coordinated call for research proposals in biomaterials launched by the European Union Commission and the National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2013 for facilitating bilateral translational research. We formed the RAPIDOS European and Chinese consortium with the aim of applying technologies creating custom-made tissue engineered constructs made of resorbable polymer and calcium phosphate ceramic composites specifically designed by integrating the following: (1 imaging and information technologies, (2 biomaterials and process engineering, and (3 biological and biomedical engineering for novel and truly translational bone repair solutions. Advanced solid free form fabrication technologies, precise stereolithography, and low-temperature rapid prototyping provide the necessary control to create innovative high-resolution medical implants. The use of Chinese medicine extracts, such as the bone anabolic factor icaritin, which has been shown to promote osteogenic differentiation of stem cells and enhance bone healing in vivo, is a safe and technologically relevant alternative to the intensely debated growth factors delivery strategies. This unique initiative driven by a global consortium is expected to accelerate scientific progress in the important field of biomaterials and to foster strong scientific cooperation between China and Europe.

    produce constituyen el objeto de los experimentos descritos en la memoria. El mecanismo de aceleracion es complicado y no se conoce perfectamente, pero se han adquirido unas nociones considerables mediante un gran numero de experimentos, utilizando para el diagnostico: circuitos externos de captacion diamagnetica, circuitos de Rogowsky en el vacio, sondas electricas, electrodos externos de captacion capacitiva, analisis de la deflexion magnetica y electrostatica de las particulas, espectroscopia, fotografia de la luz emitida por el blanco, medicion del tiempo de vuelo con y sin campo guia, determinacion de los neutrones emitidos en el volumen del plasma a raiz de la reaccion d-d y otros metodos. Como resultado se aprecia que se produce un proceso magneto-electrico complejo delante de la boca del inyector. El proceso de aceleracion depende de la diferencia de densidades del gas entre dicha region (baja) y dentro del inyector (elevada). El plasma rapido procede en gran parte del gas adsorbido en los electrodos, lo que obliga a obtener un vacio limpio para evitar la contaminacion por iones rapidos de impurezas fuertemente ionizadas (C{sup 5+}, 10{sup 8} cm/s). El material del electrodo se evapora, pero parece que no es un contaminante grave porque se forma tarde. La alta tension que en realidad acelera los iones esta ligada a la rapida expansion, en el vacio, de un volumen de flujo magnetico alrededor del chorro. El plasma rapido es emitido en forma de cono estrecho con el centro abierto. La alta tension que acelera los deuterones rapidos acelera tambien iones del material de la pared cuando el plasma rapido bonbardea una pared de vidrio, provocando su evaporacion.

    Full Text Available La participación social para prevenir el riesgo de inundación representa serias dificultades en un contexto de relaciones sociedad-gobierno basadas en la desconfianza, un marco legal enfocado principalmente a atender la emergencia y, la desorganización y apatía social generalizada para formar parte de procesos participativos. Esta situación ha sido observada en la Colonia La Hacienda, del Municipio de Puebla, en la cual, a pesar de existir una franja de alto riesgo de inundación, donde se ubican 1,174 habitantes, no se ha logrado realizar trabajos significativos para disminuir su condición de riesgo. Esta investigación, analiza, a partir de un trabajo basado en la investigación-acción, las principales acciones que han llevado a cabo las autoridades del Municipio de Puebla para disminuir el riesgo de inundación y el incipiente proceso de participación ciudadana en dicha colonia. Crear las condiciones para desarrollar un trabajo participativo organizado y así atender las zonas de riesgo de pequeña escala, entre autoridades y habitantes, se vislumbra como una acción urgente con miras a avanzar en la construcción de una sociedad resiliente ante las inundaciones.

    Full Text Available ¿Qué cabe esperar de los procesos de participación ciudadana en las políticas públicas locales?, ¿Es razonable esperar transformaciones políticas significativas? En este artículo se identifican aquellas condiciones que, a nivel teórico, podemos prever que determinen la capacidad transformadora de la participación ciudadana. Esta discusión teórica da lugar a un marco de evaluación de las prácticas de participación que se aplica al análisis de las 11 experiencias vigentes de presupuestos participativos en la provincia de Barcelona. El análisis pone en evidencia los límites de este tipo de prácticas de participación, los cuales están relacionados con tres factores principales: su posición institucional periférica; el escaso margen de decisión que se concede a la ciudadanía; y la escasa movilización social. Sin embargo, los casos analizados obtienen buenos resultados en dos aspectos importantes: el impacto de las propuestas ciudadanas en la toma de decisiones públicas y la transformación de las actitudes políticas, técnicas y ciudadanas hacia la participación. El marco de evaluación propuesto nos ayuda a identificar ámbitos críticos de mejora de los procesos participativos y de fortalecimiento de su capacidad transformadora. What can we expect from citizen participation processes in local policymaking? Is it reasonable to expect significant political transformations? In this article, we identify the conditions that theoretically determine the transformation capacity of citizen participation. Such theoretical discussion gives place to a framework for the assessment of participative practices, which we use to analyse 11 cases of participatory budgeting in the province of Barcelona. The analysis puts in evidence the limits of this kind of participative practices, which are linked to three main factors: their peripheral institutional position; the scarce decision margin that is given to the citizens; and the lack of

    Full Text Available Las actividades de Fitomejoramiento Participativo fueron conducidas con agricultores del municipio de San Antonio de los Baños de la provincia La Habana y campesinos de la comunidad la Palma de la provincia de Pinar del Río durante 2001 al 2004. En la fase de diagnóstico en las áreas de intervención del proyecto, más del 80 % de los agricultores no utilizaban la semilla del sistema formal; por lo tanto, las variedades obtenidas por los programas de mejoramiento no llegaban a la mayoría de los agricultores. Se buscó un mecanismo alternativo para introducir diversidad genética a las localidades mediante las ferias de diversidad, cuyo objetivo principal ha estado dirigido a facilitar el flujo de semilla de los institutos de investigaciones hacia el agricultor y viceversa. Posterior al desarrollo de las ferias de diversidad se continúa con la experimentación campesina en fincas y cooperativas, desarrollándose una amplia red experimental difícil de lograrse sin la participación de los productores. La experimentación campesina, el aumento de la eficiencia en la finca, incluyendo el aumento del rendimiento de sus parcelas, el aumento de la diversidad por el uso de mayor número de variedades, y una mayor proporción de área dedicada a estas variedades; todo lo cual redunda en un mejoramiento de la vida del campesino y su familia

    The Brazilian environmental law requires oil companies' commitment to implement environmental programs, among which the environmental education project. This type of project should be understood by the companies as an opportunity for the development of socio environmental responsibility policies towards the affected populations. In order for the environmental education project to be effective as a means of awareness and social transformation, it is required to increase public's participation from the process of knowledge creation on the communities environmental problems to the disclose of the produced contents. This work refers to the use of the audiovisual as an instrument for the mobilization and consciousness for the construction of participative diagnostics, from the experience of the Environmental Education Project of the Polvo field, accomplished in ten municipal districts of the Campos Basin region. Inspired on an original methodology, the project promoted environmental cinema workshops that resulted in 30 documentaries directed by the local population and 10 environmental forums in which were developed local audiovisual environmental agendas.

    In this work are presented some results of the application of energy diagnoses to small companies. These diagnoses use the methodology developed by the Department of Energy of the United States of America and are performed by advanced students of engineering and university professors. The results of four energy diagnoses applied to companies of different branches are presented. In the studies the energy saving alternatives are evaluated, as well as their economic impact and their economic viability. The annual energy saving according to the company goes from 25,600 to 596,000 MJ (from 1.2 to 10.5%), which means a saving from $5,300 to $165,000 Mexican Currency (1.43 to 9.27%). The simple rate of return goes of 0.5 to 9.3 years. From the work it is concluded that the application of that methodology of energy diagnoses in Mexico is very feasible, since with very low costs opportunities of energy savings are identified and evaluated for this section of companies that traditionally have not been taken care of by the official programs and allows them to give launch to a solid program of energy improvement. [Spanish] En este trabajo se presentan algunos resultados de la aplicacion de diagnosticos energeticos a pequenas empresas.

Como ejemplo se presentan los resultados de cuatro diagnosticos energeticos aplicados a empresas de distintas ramas. En los estudios se evaluan las alternativas de ahorro de energia, tanto en la energia ahorrada, como su impacto economico, asi como su viabilidad economica. El ahorro anual de energia segun la empresa va de 25,600 a 596,000 MJ (de 1.2 a 10.5%), lo que significa un ahorro de $5,300 a $165,000 (1.43 a 9.27%). La tasa simple de retorno va de 0.5 a 9.3 anos.

    In recent years, the indoor air quality (IAQ) in work spaces have acquired special importance. Health symptoms refer to a productivity and economic loss. IAQ health symptoms associated with acute discomfort that improve while away from work. More common, however, are apparent outbreaks of illness within work spaces in which neither environmental causes non recognized diseases can be identified. Usually reported within the last years, these events are often called sick building syndrome. To determine a sick building diagnosis and treatment, it is necessary to plan methodology based on environment comfort, habitability, energy efficiency use and nature preservation. Hereby it is presented a methodology to determine a sick building diagnosis and treatment which was applied in Superior Court of Justice building (Tribunales Primero y Segundo del Decimocuarto Circuito del Poder Judicial de la Federacion), where employees have expressed diseases as sleepiness, cold and difficulty breathing. [Spanish] En los ultimos anos, la calidad del aire en el ambiente de trabajo ha adquirido especial interes debido a la importancia que representa para el bienestar, eficiencia y productividad de los empleados.

    o confiabilidad. De esta manera, siendo la energia nuclear la unica alternativa viable para sustituir la quema de combustibles fosiles en plantas termoelectricas, con antecedentes como el accidente de Three Mile Island en 1979 o el desastre de Chernobil en 1986, han llevado a no despreciar los riesgos relacionados. Lo cual complica su manejo y en consecuencia ha limitado la proliferacion de mas centrales nucleares. Bajo esta realidad, la problematica se concentra en dos tares: aumentar el rendimiento de las plantas termoelectricas y reducir la emision de contaminantes, tanto gases como liquidos. Por todo esto, y en cumplimiento con los valores expresados en la mision y vision del Instituto de Investigaciones Electrica (IIE), se ha seleccionado desarrollar una herramienta de apoyo para el estudio del estado de equipos rotativos remotos. Para ello, tomando como base la experiencia del IIE en el diagnostico de turbinas de vapor, se ha desarrollado una plataforma capaz de determinar la presencia de fallas a traves del modelado de la turbina y sus elementos, se representa el comportamiento esperado y, mediante la transformacion de las senales recolectadas del sistema, se calcula el comportamiento real del equipo. Con ambos resultados se procede a aplicar una tecnica de diagnostico que permita detectar las desviaciones e inferir los desperfectos existentes. Buscando mejorar la certeza y calidad de los resultados del analisis, como complemento, se ejecuta revision de las reglas de diagnostico, con base en el registro historico de diagnosis realizada y empleando un algoritmo genetico para la inclusion de reglas nuevas, las cuales se evaluan como candidatas para la mejora del producto. Este documento representa los esfuerzos de mas de un ano en el area de diagnostico, en busca de la adecuada arquitectura para una infraestructura de diagnostico remoto que permita la deteccion de fallas en centrales con turbina de vapor.

    Full Text Available As diferentes experiências participativas surgidas no Brasil na década de 1990 colaboraram para que o país tornasse-se, como diz Tatagiba, em "um celeiro de experiências inovadoras de gestão". Um dos destaques dentre as várias experiências de governança é o Orçamento Participativo (OP: programa que ao longo dos anos tem sido palco de intensos debates e estudos e colecionado admiradores e críticos. Entretanto, apesar de sua fama e dos diversos estudos, poucos buscaram avaliar o desempenho e a sensibilidade do programa ao governo eleito no município. Este artigo investiga o programa de orçamento participativo do município de Porto Alegre entre 1989 e 2008, analisando especificamente a sensibilidade do programa às mudanças de governo entre as gestões do Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT de 2001-2004 e do Partido do Movimento Democrático Brasileiro (PMDB de 2005-2008. Ou seja, investigamos se a mudança de partido no controle da prefeitura, mantendo o OP em funcionamento, afetou, no entanto, seu desempenho. Nossa análise indica que o funcionamento do programa é bastante afetado pelo partido político que o implementa e que, portanto, o programa peca por baixa institucionalização, mesmo em seu caso de maior sucesso: o município de Porto Alegre.

    Full Text Available Durante milenios, el fitomejoramiento fue obra de los propios agricultores. En el siglo pasado, particularmente en la segunda mitad, éste fue considerado como un mandato para los científicos. En esta tarea, buena parte de los fitomejoradores confiscaron para ellos mismos esta responsabilidad y poco tomaron en cuenta a los usuarios de sus resultados. Recientemente, en muchos países, núcleos de científicos han reconsiderado su posición e involucran en sus trabajos, de una manera u otra, a los agricultores, lo que llaman fitomejoramiento participativo (FP o, en inglés, participatory plant breeding. El presente artículo ofrece una visión global de los trabajos de FP que grupos de científicos junto con técnicos y agricultores llevan a cabo en América Central. Después de presentar brevemente las experiencias en curso, el texto analiza rápidamente los resultados obtenidos a tres niveles: variedades, metodologías y aprendizaje de los actores involucrados. En una tercera parte, se enfatiza el proceso que ha dado soporte a estas acciones, concluye en una cuarta parte, con los principales retos planteados por estas iniciativas. Las experiencias en curso revelan actitudes y conocimientos, metodologías, dispositivos organizativos y estrategias que facultan la implementación de interacciones exitosas entre agricultores, investigadores y técnicos. Estas implicaciones a su vez desembocan en el desarrollo de variedades adaptadas a los contextos de agricultura campesina, en la cual el fitomejoramiento participativo y el convencional se complementan y enriquecen

    The scope of a computerized system is presented to make an energy diagnosis to homes and a simulation of scenarios of cost/benefit, due to the implementation of energy saving measures and the efficient use of electrical energy. The FIPATERM (trust for the heat insulation of the house in Mexicali), provides economic and technical support so that the domestic users diminish their expense for the electrical energy, implementing programs of Demand Side Management (DSM). The current effective programs are: thermal insulation, substitution of the existent air conditioning units for efficient ones, reduction of infiltration, leveled plan of payments, interruption of the air conditioning equipment. In order to participate in one or several of the programs of energy efficiency, an energy diagnosis is made to the user. It is from a survey of the equipment and characteristics of the house, as well as a description on the part of the user of his habits of use of the equipment, that scenarios are simulated, which allow the user to identify the most profitable measures.

    es uno de los metodos mas utiles para el estudio de las alteraciones de.la circulacion pulmonar y para el diagnostico de embolias e infartcs. Sin embargo su utilizacion en diagnostico tumoral apenas si ha pasado de algunos ensayos. Los autores han centrado su atencion en el estudio, mediante gammagrafia, de pacientes con tumores de pulmon primitivos y secundarios a otras localizaciones, encontrando que segun el tipo de tumor el patron de distribucion del trazador es radicalmente distinto. En los tumores metastasicos la repercusion de las lesiones en la gammagraffa es pequena y depende exclusivamente del volumen de la zona de condensacion. Los nodulos tumorales se comportan exclusivamente como zonas inactivas dentro de una masa de parenquima funcional activo y su influencia en la imagen gammagrafica depende exclusivamente del tamano de la zona tumoral y de la cantidad de parenquima sano que se interponga entre ella y el detector. En los tumores pulmonares primitivos y muy especialmente en los localizados en la zona hiliar, lesiones relativamente pequenas originan defectos de captacion amplias zonas del pulmon, que pueden afectar a varios segmentos, a un lobulo e incluso a la totalidad del pulmon. Esta disminucion de captacion no puede explicarse exclusivamente por la imagen tumoral, ni por las zonas de atelectasia asociadas, sino que debe ser motivada por una modificacion profunda de la hemodinamica del puimon afecto. Varios tipos de fenomenos asociados a la progresion tumoral pueden motivar alteraciones vasculares que afecten hasta la periferia del pulmon: la alteracion del regimen ventilatorio con disminucion de la tension de oxigeno que da lugar a una modificacion de las condiciones hemodinamicas; la hipertension pulmonar por compresion de las venas pulmonares de menor resistencia que las arterias; y el estimulo nervioso directo por irritacion de los plexos bronquiales por el crecimiento del tumor y los fenomenos reactivos asociados.

    temperature de la reactivite. (author) [Spanish] Desde diciembre de 1960, el reactor de impulsos de neutrones rapidos IBR viene funcionando a su potencia nominal en el Instituto Central de Investigaciones Nucleares. Dicho reactor se utiliza como fuente pulsante de neutrones para realizar experimentos de fisica por el metodo del tiempo de vuelo. Se llevan a cabo determinacione s de las secciones eficaces totales, de las secciones eficaces de captura de neutrones intermedios, estudios de las interacciones de los neutrones lentos con los solidos y los liquidos y mediciones de los espectros neutronicos en distintos medios. Los autores describen las principales caracteristicas constructivas del reactor y los resultados de los estudios realizados mediante el mismo. Este reactor trabaja con arreglo a un regimen de impulsos periodicos. Los impulsos de potencia se originan cuando la parte movil del cuerpo, fijada a un disco giratorio, atraviesa la parte estacionaria con una velocidad del orden de los 230 m/s. Gracias a la presencia de una zona movible auxiliar, es posible variar la frecuencia de los impulsos de potencia entre 2,3 y 88 impulsos por segundo. La potencia media del reactor es de 1 kW y la duracion media de los impulsos, de 36 {mu}s. El reactor esta provisto de un sistema de mando y de seguridad que vela por el mantenimiento automatico de la potencia del reactor en su valor medio, asi como por su rapida detencion en caso de perturbacion del funcionamiento. Tambien posee el reactor conductores neutronicos de vacio, que se utilizan en los experimentos de tiempo de vuelo. El conducto principal tiene 1000 m de longitud. En el proceso de puesta en marcha y durante las investigaciones fisicas realizadas con el reactor, se estudio el efecto del desplazamiento de los organos de regulacion y de las partes moviles del cuerpo sobre la reactividad, se determino la duracion de los impulsos a distintos regimenes de trabajo del reactor y se estudiaron las fluctuaciones de la amplitud de

    The accuracy of radiological diagnosis of Apical Periodontitis (AP) is reported between examiners with differents levels of clinical experience using panoramic radiographs. 1032 teeth in 41 panoramic radiographs have been diagnosed. The evaluation of the x-rays and radiological diagnosis is performed by three independent dentists for AP to each tooth. The teeth have presented without radiological signs of AP in 96.6%. The number of teeth classified with an uncertain diagnosis of AP at the has been inversely proportional to the number of years of experience of the examiner. The examiner A has been used as a reference and compared the diagnoses of other examiners.The percentage agreement for all teeth was 95% for examiner B and 94% for examiner C. Kappa for all has been of 0.44 for examiner B and 0.43 for examiner C. The different categories were analyzed separately, the inferior teeth and the anterior teeth have obtained the best results. The level of clinical experience of the examiner has been indifferent in the diagnosis of AP in panoramic radiographs; however, it is important experience in the number of radiographs extras that will be needed to give a radiological diagnosis definitive.

    To maintain the efficiency values, power and unit thermal consumption of the electrical generation units near the design levels, has been always one of the objectives of the operation and maintenance personnel of the power plants of the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE). A way to obtain this objective is through the systematic analysis of the equipment operating conditions and of the diagnosis of the deviations causes of the normal operation way. The Gerencia de Operacion de Maquinaria (Management of Turbo-Machinery) through projects contracted with the Unidad de Investigacion y Desarrollo (Unit of Investigation and Development) of the CFE has made the thermal evaluation of different generation units. These evaluations have allowed to identify which internal components are causing the deviations and to improve the planning of the maintenance activities required to bring back the unit to its best working conditions. In this article the methodology for the online thermal evaluation of the steam turbines and its heat transfer auxiliary equipment is described -water condenser and heaters- and some of the obtained results are also presented.

    Full Text Available Este artículo de revisión contiene algunos estudios relacionados con el Presupuesto Participativo (P. P., la participación y el liderazgo comunitario en países de Latinoamérica como Brasil, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, y en países de Europa como España, Francia y Reino Unido, útiles para reflexionar sobre el alcance de los abordajes que se le han dado, hasta ahora, a estos temas. El enfoque metodológico es cualitativo, con énfasis en la estrategia documental. Los resultados son: “La experiencia de los presupuestos participativos como práctica política”, donde se indica que los estudios sobre P. P., se han enfocado principalmente desde la lógica de las metodologías, la gestión y el impacto en el desarrollo social. “El líder como sujeto de la acción participativa”. Los estudios que abordan este tema sitúan al líder como un actor estratégico que aunque se ha consolidado como referente del desarrollo de sus comunidades, requiere mayor acompañamiento del Estado para superar los contextos de pobreza e inequidad. “La Participación comunitaria para el desarrollo social”. Los estudios reconocen que la participación comunitaria requiere trascender la reacción frente a necesidades inmediatas hacia la búsqueda de proyectos dimensionados desde el contexto histórico, económico, social y político. El artículo concluye que la participación del líder en los escenarios participativos ha sido entendida, como un eje articulador del desarrollo social de las comunidades que se encuentra en construcción y ascenso permanente, donde es necesaria la articulación del Estado como garante del proceso de transformación social hacia el desarrollo de las mismas.

    The European Union Council Directive 97/43/Euratom of 30 June 1997 on health protection of individuals against the dangers of ionizing radiation in relation to medical exposure has been partially transposed to the Spanish national law by the Real Decreto 1976/1999, which establishes the quality criteria in Diagnostic Radiology. A key instrument in this legal regulation is the so-called Quality Assurance Program (QAP) which has to be implemented in each Diagnostic Radiology unit. The Spanish Breast Imaging Diagnostic Society (Sociedad Espanola de Diagnostico por Imagen de la Mama, SEDIM) has proposed a reference QAP to be used as a guide in all the mammography units in the country. Its main issues are displayed in the present paper. The SEDIM QAP includes some items related to justification and optimization of mammography exams as well as a proposal for the assignment of functions and responsibilities. A guide for the image and technical parameters quality evaluation is also included. Some keys on equipment acquisition, maintenance and on continuing education and information management can also be found in that document. (author)

The comparative approach of those experiences, conducted from different party coalitions - in Piracicaba (1989-1992 and in Santa Bárbara d'Oeste (1997-2000 -, allows a test of their powers and limits from a procedural conception of democracy and the complementary role of the participation. In contrast to a view that gives priority to representation, the analysis discusses the range of the new civil society actions from the perspective of the democratization process in the scope of the Local Government.

    This article deals with a research in progress searching to take care of the faults that occur with greatest frequency in the fossil fuel power plants of Mexico with the aid of tools of computational intelligence such as the neuronal networks and the fuzzy logic, for the online recognition of the dynamic behavior patterns of variable groups. What this research looks for is the development of individual systems, in relation to the computational intelligence techniques that continuously supervise the functioning of the unit and inform the operator of the eventual faults in the understanding that on time attention to the faults will result in a minimum cost. The advantages of these diagnosis mechanisms are established in comparison to alternative diagnosis methods, such as their associative memory useful to store fault patterns.

    Full Text Available O município de Porto Alegre tem experimentado processos participativos que vão além da abertura do aparelho do Estado à participação direta da população nas decisões dos investimentos públicos proporcionada pelo Orçamento Participativo. Através dos chamados “Congressos da Cidade”, a população pode contribuir para a modificação dos instrumentos de planejamento urbano físico‑territorial. O bairro Lomba do Pinheiro, cuja região é marcada pela presença de importantes recursos naturais, tem a oportunidade de conquistar melhorias urbanas através de legislação moderna capaz de garantir a realização de obras e transformações físicas e socioambientais. Neste território teve início em março de 1998 o chamado Projeto Integrado de Desenvolvimento Sustentável da Lomba do Pinheiro, que permite articular ações de distintos organismos municipais tendo em vista produzir lotes de interesse social em terrenos aptos para usos urbanos, assim como equipamentos comunitários. Esta ação é mais que um Plano, é uma intenção forte de transformação através do projeto urbano, redesenho, parceria e monitoramento do desenvolvimento, em que a participação faz a diferença.

    Full Text Available Em um contexto social complexo e globalizado e sob um regime constitucional democrático, o Poder Público tem buscado novas formas de participação dos cidadãos nos negócios públicos. A participação direta, mediante o acesso da sociedade ao processo de decisão sobre políticas públicas, tem constituído importante instrumento para a concretização, no Brasil, de uma democracia que alia instrumentos representativos e diretos. Entre as principais experiências verificadas no país encontra-se a adoção, pela Administração Pública, do Orçamento Participativo, estratégia que permite ao cidadão definir, em certa medida, a alocação de recursos públicos em um dado período. Este trabalho parte dessas premissas e avalia a implementação e execução do Orçamento Participativo Digital – OPD - no Município de Belo Horizonte no ano de 2006. No estudo realizado verificou-se que o OPD representa um aprofundamento, em qualidade e quantidade, do Orçamento Participativo, pois tanto expande a participação quanto resguarda mais a autonomia da vontade do eleitor. Apesar dos problemas apresentados, constatou-se que o OPD constitui um passo importante para a ampliação da democracia participativa.Palavras-chave: orçamento participativo; administração pública

    tareas mas afectada por esta situacion es la operacion de los sistemas electricos frente a la presencia de fallas, donde la primera labor a realizar por parte del personal de operacion de la red es la pronta ubicacion del lugar de falla dentro del sistema. En el presente trabajo se aborda el problema del diagnostico de ubicacion de fallas electricas en sistemas de potencia, desde la perspectiva de los operadores de los centros de control de energia de una empresa electrica. El objetivo de este trabajo de tesis es describir una metodologia de analisis de operacion de protecciones como base para el desarrollo de un sistema de diagnostico de ubicacion de fallas, que permita estimar los posibles lugares de falla dentro del sistema asi como una justificacion de la operacion de las protecciones ante un disturbio como apoyo a los operadores de los Centros de Control de Energia. La metodologia esta disenada para utilizar distintos tipos de informacion, discreta, continua y controles. Sin embargo, en el desarrollo de la presente etapa de la metodologia propuesta se hace uso exclusivamente de la informacion de tipo discreta de los estados de interruptores y operacion de relevadores, asi como de la conectividad de los elementos de la red. La metodologia de analisis consiste en determinar el grupo de elementos donde pudo haber ocurrido la falla, utilizando las zonas de cobertura de las protecciones asociadas a los interruptores operados. Posteriormente, estas alternativas de falla se ordenan en forma descendentes de posibilidad utilizando indices de clasificacion y analisis basados en logica difusa.

At the present time, the described primary equipment has been integrated in an arrangement denominated encapsulated substation that presents dimensional and aesthetic advantages in the conventional substations. Nevertheless, the isolation involved in this type of substations means new challenges when carrying out its diagnosis in a planned way or after the appearance of a fault. In this sense, the insulating and electromechanical system of the primary equipment of substations must be evaluated in a programmed way or be constantly monitored. This with the final purpose of detecting incipient problems that could evolve towards a fault or to the diminution of the electrical system reliability. [Spanish] En un sistema electrico, el equipo primario de subestaciones esta integrado por los transformadores de potencia, los transformadores de instrumento, los interruptores y los circuitos de interconexion (cables de energia). En la actualidad, el equipo primario descrito se ha integrado en un arreglo denominado subestacion encapsulada que presenta ventajas dimensionales y esteticas sobre las subestaciones convencionales. Sin embargo, el aislamiento involucrado en este tipo de subestaciones significa nuevos retos al efectuar su diagnostico de manera planeada o despues de presentarse una falla. En este sentido, el sistema aislante y electromecanico del equipo primario de subestaciones debe ser evaluado de manera programada o monitoreado constantemente. Ello con la finalidad de detectar problemas incipientes que pudieran evolucionar hacia una falla o la disminucion de la confiabilidad del sistema electrico.

    One of the potential areas for energy saving in Central Electric Power Plants are the auxiliaries system, so as to based in a preliminary energy diagnosis and considering that energy saving measures would be taken, going from the instrumentation, operational changes in equipment, as well as in using velocity variators in motors, it turns out to be that the energy consumption of auxiliaries at 75% load in a 150 MW thermal power plant varies from 3% to 4% and for the case of a 350 MW power plant the energy consumption of the auxiliaries represents 2 to 3.5%. Nowadays this consumption are above 6%. Considering that the country has 40 units with capacities varying from 150 to 350 MW, the economical and the fuel saving would be substantial. This paper will present a summary of the methodology to be used to carry out this type of projects.

(author) [Spanish] Son muy numerosos los estudios de las reacciones radiologicas de los mamiferos pequefios, desde el nivel infracelular hasta el del organismo entero, llevados a cabo con radiaciones de baja TLE, tales como los rayos X o gamma. En cambio, son menos amplias las investigaciones efectuadas con radiacones de TLE mas elevada, como los neutrones rapidos. Y aun, en estas ultimas, la irradiacion se realizo con neutrones de una extensa gama energetica, y por lo tanto, de muy variada TLE. Ciertas reacciones entre un haz cargado y un blanco dan origen a neutrones cuyas energias dependen directamente del angulo que forman el eje de emision con el eje haz-blanco. Los autores emplearon una de aquellas reacciones en sus estudios de laboratorio, a saber, la reaccion proton/tritio. Por medio de la reduccion de peso del bazo y del timo en el raton, se ha comprobado que la eficacia biologica relativa (referidas a rayos X de 250 kVp)es del orden de 4 para una energia neutronica de 0,43 MeV, y se reduce hasta 3 para 1,80 MeV. El estudio del agotamiento de los espermatogonios da valores algo mayores de la EBR, pero su disminucion al aumentar la energia neutronica es similar. Dentro del mismo intervalo de energias neutronicas, se examino la inhibicion del metabolismo del acido nucleico en el intestino y la medula osea (mediante precursores de dicho acido nucleico marcados con radioisotopos) y los valores de la EBR obtenidos son generalmente menores.

    Full Text Available En la actualidad, algunas implementaciones de sistemas informáticos siguen fracasando, algunas causas de fracaso son: la falta de información por parte de los usuarios, la ausencia de capacitación adecuada, la no satisfacción por cuestiones asociadas a la tarea diaria que realizan, la ausencia de comunicación eficaz dentro de la organización, etc. El problema que se aborda en este trabajo es, precisamente, cómo ayudar a las organizaciones a aceptar la incorporación de un nuevo SI (sistema informático o producto-software considerado como un cambio organizacional. El estudio realizado sobre el estado de la cuestión revela que dicho problema está abierto. Se propone un conjunto de recomendaciones a tener en cuenta para la implementación de un SI, contemplando el enfoque sociotécnico y el diseño participativo. Se consideran los SI desarrollados a medida o parametrizados que dan soporte a la gestión empresarial. Resultó necesario enunciar una serie de términos sobre los que se basa la propuesta, siendo estos: ¨proceso de implementación¨ y ¨usuario satisfecho¨. Se reflexionó sobre la necesidad de evaluar el nivel de satisfacción de los usuarios, que cambiarían su sistema de trabajo al utilizar un nuevo SI (Sistema Informático. Para esto, se construyó una herramienta de medición de la satisfacción de las necesidades de los usuarios, basada en el enfoque socio-técnico. Esta herramienta se compone de dos cuestionarios, el cuestionario que permite la medición del enfoque socio denominado ¨MES¨ y el cuestionario que permite la medición del enfoque técnico denominado ¨MET¨. Se sometió a la herramienta de medición a un caso real y a partir de los resultados obtenidos se construyó el conjunto de recomendaciones específico. En definitiva, este trabajo aporta a la Ingeniería de Software, un prototipo de herramienta de medición de la satisfacción de las necesidades de los usuarios de un SI y un conjunto de lineamientos

    , comme c'est souvent le cas, la section efficace de groupe en terme d'integrales de resonance efficace, mais qu'il faut modifier cette definition suivant le type de schema multigroupe utilise. (author) [Spanish] La memoria discute en terminos generales las ecuaciones de difusion de grupos multiples y la forma correcta de las secciones eficaces correspondientes . En particular, demuestra que la seccion eficaz media de transporte puede expresarse con bastante precision en terminos de un promedio de recorridos libres medios. Esta magnitud es dificil de calcular porque no se puede expresar en funcion de promedios elementales ; sin embargo, se demuestran varias desigualdades que simplifican el procedimiento de determinacion de promedios. La memoria discute otros tres aspectos de las secciones eficaces de grupos que con frecuencia se ignoran, pero que pueden ser importantes al estudiar detalladamente un diseno. a) El empleo de los mismos valores medios correspondientes a las secciones eficaces de grupos para todos los reactores rapidos no se justifica si los espectros de los diferentes reactores no son similares y si las secciones eficaces varian rapidamente dentro del grupo, como ocurre a menudo. Los autores describen un metodo de iteracion, que permite obtener valores medios correctos y determinar en que medida los efectos espectrales ejercen influencia sobre los calculos de reactores. b) En los calculos de transporte (metodo S{sub n} por ejemplo), los promedios deben evaluarse en funcion del angulo y de la energia. Como el flujo no es separable en una parte angulo y en una parte energetica, es necesario proceder con sumo cuidado para evitar errores. La ecuacion S{sub n} se estudia sobre la base de un modelo sencillo, y de este estudio se deduce un criterio que puede ser de utilidad al determinar la importancia de la no-separabilida d angular en los calculos de reactores. c) Basandose en los argumentos de conservacion neutronica, se deriva una relacion de compatibilidad

Les emetteurs alpha et les emetteurs beta purs de faible energie presentent la plus grande difficulte du fait que les charges corporelles de ces nucleides doivent ordinairement etre evaluees par une analyse radiochimique du sang ou des excreta. Les auteurs decrivent les separations radiochimiques qui ont ete mises au point et appliquees au Laboratoire national d*Argonne pour doser rapidement ces emetteurs. Le memoire examine d'autre part certains problemes que pose l'obtention de charges corporelles a partir des taux d'excretion, peu apres l'absorption. Pendant ce laps de temps, l'excretion se modifie rapidement et, pour beaucoup de nucleides importants en l'occurrence, a un taux inconnu. Pour les taux d'absorption tres eleves ou tres bas, il n'est pas necessaire de connaitre immediatement la mesure precise des charges corporelles. Cependant, il existe pour chaque radionucleide une dose d'absorption intermediaire pour laquelle il faut pouvoir -determiner sans trop tarder la charge corporelle avec une precision relative, ce qui permet de decider ou non le traitement. Les auteurs examinent les proprietes et les facteurs qui rendent le dosage des elements osteotropes particulierement difficile dans les cas d'accident.

En este articulo se presenta un esquema de diagnostico de fallas, aplicado al generador de vapor de una unidad termoelectrica, basado en tecnicas de modelado de sistemas dinamicos mediante redes de Petri. Frente a otros metodos, el esquema ofrece mayor facilidad para su implementacion, rapidez de adaptacion ante cambios de zona de operacion y buena robustez. Una manera de reducir el efecto de las fallas en un sistema de produccion, consiste de dos pasos. El primero es diagnosticar la falla tan pronto como ocurra y subsecuentemente poner en practica acciones correctivas. El concepto de diagnostico de fallas se relaciona con la primera etapa y comprende tanto la deteccion, como la localizacion de esta. Es decir, ademas de determinar que una falla esta presente, se sabe en que componente ha ocurrido. Con base en lo anterior, es claro que un sistema de diagnostico requiere supervisar las variables que caracterizan el comportamiento de las fallas, a fin de detectarlas en el momento en que se presenten e informarlo al operador. Con esta informacion, el operador podra realizar las acciones correctivas necesarias para que la planta siga operando en la medida de lo posible.

    This work presents an analysis of the results of eight industrial power audits made in Mexico by a team of professors and students of the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana-Ixtapalapa (UAM), following the methodology of the Centers of Industrial Consultant's office and Analyses and Power Diagnoses sponsored by the Office of Industrial Technologies of the Department of Energy of the United Studies (IAC-DOE Program). In these diagnosis studies, that could be classified as of fast execution, it was possible to find and to evaluate from 6 to 13 actions by company to increase their energy efficiency. This represents at the moment between 6 and 29% of the currently used energy, being the average 18.4%. The equivalent economic saving ascends to a value between 7 and 31% of the total paid, with an average value of 13.8%. Finally, the simple period of return for the saving recommendations is of 0.87 years, with an average number of 0.51 years for the actions focused to the saving of thermal energy and 1.52 years for the actions that improve the use of the electric energy.

Les methodes utilisees pour la prevision de l'efficacite des mecanismes de controle ont evolue: au debut, il s'agissait d'evaluations approximatives; on fait maintenant des calculs tout a fait surs que peuvent confirmer les donnees experimentales obtenues grace aux assemblages critiques. L'auteur indique dans ce memoire certains resultats experimentaux et expose les methodes analytiques sflres que l'on emploie couramment. Les experiences critiques portant sur la generation actuelle de reacteurs a neutrons rapides ont comporte de nombreuses recherches concernant l'efficacite de leur mecanisme de commande, ainsi que des experiences a la peripherie du coeur pour l'etude de reacteurs perfectionnes ayant un coeur d'un plus grand volume. L'auteur mentionne des etudes analytiques preliminaires qui montrent qu'il ne faudra peut-etre pas proceder dans l'avenir a des recherches experimentales detaillees sur maquette. (author) [Spanish] El autor examina los aspectos practicos del problema consistente en obtener una reactividad suficiente para el control de los reactores de neutrones rapidos, control que es muy diferente del utilizado en los sistemas de neutrones termicos. Las diferencias se deben en primer lugar a los valores relativamente pequenos de las secciones eficaces para los neutrones rapidos. En un sistema de neutrones rapidos no hay venenos fuertes. Como consecuencia, los fuertes venenos de fision (por ejemplo, el Xe y el Sm) en los reactores termicos exigen un exceso de reactividad mucho menor que la perdida de reactividad causada por la destruccion del material fisionable por fision y captura. Como las secciones eficaces del espectro de neutrones rapidos son relativamente pequenas comparadas con las correspondientes a los neutrones termicos, la densidad atomica del material desempena un papel importante al elegir los materiales de las barras de control.

Para la exploracion del higado se utilizo 198Au, Rosa Bengala marcado con {sup 131}I y polivinilpirrolidona marcada tambien con {sup 131}I. Ademas de la exploracion anteroposterior, se recurrio a tecnicas especiales como la exploracion estereoscopica en dos o tres planos y al empleo combinado del {sup 198}Au y el Rosa Bengala marcado con {sup 131}I para determinar los coeficientes relativos de fijacion de estos radioisotopos en el hfgado. Los pacientes habfan sido distribuidos en ocho grupos clinicos con miras a la compilacion y evaluacion de los resultados del diagnostico. En la memoria se presenta un resumen de estos resultados. Cada grupo clfnico se analizo por separado. Por ejemplo, se detecto una lesion macroscopica en el 95% de los 65 casos de equinococosis. La radiografia solo permitio descubrir calcificaciones en el 35% de estos casos, pero tambien en el 14% de los otros casos de afecciones hepaticas. Las reacciones de Weinberg y Casoni fueron positivas en el 64% de los casos de equinococosis, pero tambien en el 22 por ciento de las otras enfermedades. En loque respecta al cancer del hfgado, se detecto una lesion macroscopica en el 44% de los casos, se obtuvo un centelleograma velado en el 30% y se observaron modificaciones morfologicas en el 29%. En dos de los 158 casos de tumores malignos, el centelleograma parecia falsamente normal, pero en el 40% de estos mismos casos los resultados obtenidos en el laboratorio fueron negativos. Con la tecnica de exploracion estereoscopica en dos o tres planos se obtuvieron datos nuevos o complementarios sobre el estado del higado en el 45% de los casos. La centelleografia se utilizo tambien para el control ulterior de los resultados. Se han hecho las siguientes observaciones: 1. Despues de una equinococotomia persiste una cicatriz caracteristica en forma de lesion macroscopica. 2. Tres meses despues del tratamiento de un absceso amebico, se produce una

La eleccion de los datos integrales de fisica de los reactores rapidos que se ha de incluir en esa seccion se baso en los dos criterios siguientes: a) que los datos provengan de sistemas relativamente simples que se presten para un analisis teorico sencillo; y b) que se trate de sistemas complejos que representan prototipos o maquetas que ofrecen interes general para el estudio de los reactores de potencia rapidos. Se fijo el primer criterio con la intencion de registrar los datos integrales de aquellos sistemas que tienen una utilidad mas general en la verificacion de los parametros y los procedimientos de calculo de las secciones eficaces. El segundo criterio se basa en la presentacion de los datos corrientes sobre sistemas reales de reactores de potencia reproductores rapidos.

    The production of radiophosphorus by the fast neutron (n, p) reaction on sulphur is used for the determination of sulphur by activation analysis. Using this technique it is possible to determine sulphur in materials of high thermal-neutron absorption cross-section because the absorption cross-sections for fast neutrons are, in general, much lower than those for slow neutrons, so that self-shielding errors are considerably reduced. Interference due to the slow neutron (n, {gamma}) reaction on neutral phosphorus is eliminated by a double irradiation technique involving irradiation in regions of differing slow/fast flux-ratios. The method has been applied to the determination of sulphur in chromium and arsenic. (author) [French] La production de radiophosphore par reaction (n, p) de neutrons rapides sur le soufre est utilisee pour la determination du soufre au moyen d'une analyse par activation. Cette methode permet la determination du soufre dans les matieres de forte section efficace d'absorption des neutrons thermiques; en effet, les sections efficaces d'absorption des neutrons rapides sont, d'une maniere generale, beaucoup plus faibles que pour les neutrons lents, de sorte que les erreurs d'autoprotection se trouvent considerablement reduites. L'interference due a la reaction (n, {gamma}) des neutrons lents sur le phosphore naturel est eliminee par une double irradiation, qui implique une irradiation dans les regions ou le rapport du flux de neutrons lents au flux de neutrons rapides a des valeurs differentes. La methode a ete appliquee a la determination du soufre dans le chrome et l'arsenic.

Longtemps apres une irradiation par des neutrons rapides ou par des protons, on constate chez le rat l'apparition de tumeurs benignes et malignes dans divers tissus, notamment dans le tissu hematopoie tique, les glandes mammaires, l'hypophyse, l'uterus, les ovaires, la prostate, les testicules, la thyroide, la glande cervicale, le pancreas, les glandes surrenales, le foie, les reins, les poumons, le tractus gastro-intestinal, le tissu cellulaire sous-cutane, les ganglions lymphatiques, la vessie, etc. La frequence globale des tumeurs et le nombre des apparitions simultanees de neoplasmes en plusieurs endroits ont ete deux a trois fois plus eleves chez les femelles que chez les males. La dose minimum de neutrons necessaire pour provoquer une tumeur des glandes mammaires semble legerement inferieure a 42,5rad. La frequence des tumeurs de l'hypophyse est la plus elevee lorsque la dose est de 42,5 rad. A cette meme dose,. on constate l'apparition de leucoses et de tumeurs de la thyroide. Lors d'une irradiation par des protons, la dose minimum necessaire pour provoquer une tumeur est de l'ordre de 250 rad pour le tissu hematopoietique et la thyroide, de 300 rad pour les testicules et de 100 rad pour la prostate et le tissu cellulaire sous-cutane. Lors d'une irradiation par les neutrons rapides, les tumeurs des testicules, du gros intestin, des reins et du foie sont plus frequentes pour 42,5 a 85 rad et les tumeurs de la peau et du tissu cellulaire sous-cutane pour 85 rad.

    This article aims at developing a graphic proposal for multithematic diagnostic map. The research`s objective is the analysis of the legends of the maps entitled Mapa Diagnostico Geoambiental da Usina Hidreletrica de Igarapava (Geoenvironmental Diagnostic map of the Igarapava Hydroelectric Plant). The analysis emphases on identifying and solving problems resulting in non-respect of the graphic transcription laws which prejudice the map`s clarity. Upon analyzing both versions of the maps, it appeared that these problems were basically resulting from bad legibility and visualization and the inadequate use of retina`s variables in the translation of graphic density and both retinian and angular separation. Graphic density was reduced and retinian separation was improved through leading a better contrast between elements of cartographic base and the Geoenvironment Synthesis Map. The angular separation was increased by using simplified forms to better visualization of the spatial structure of the information. That aspect was laos improved by creating a series of small maps to accompany the legend. Point and line elements were represented on the same map so to not prejudice hierarchical relationship between elements. All these modifications were done without affecting information extraction of the various levels of the Geoenvironmental Synthesis (BASE MAP, VEGETATION and LAND USE, HUMAN ASPECTS, CULTURAL ASPECTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL DYNAMIC). The visualization of the document as a whole was greatly improved with respect to the original proposed format. This research is but one of the various steps to the preparation of an environmental map that aims at giving clear visibility to the thousands of words of an environmental study report.

(author) [Spanish] La composicion isotopica del plutonio empleado como combustible en los reactores de neutrones rapidos depende de su procedencia. En principio, existen tres fuentes posibles, a saber: a) los reactores generadores de plutonio; b) los reactores de potencia termicos (alimentados con uranio natural o enriquecido); c) las envolturas fertiles de los reactores de neutrones rapidos. La fuente a), y hasta cierto punto la fuente c), proporcionan plutonio-239 relativamente puro, mientras que el plutonio de la fuente b) es rico en {sup 240}Pu, {sup 241}Pu y {sup 242}Pu. La cantidad de impurezas depende, del tipo de reactor empleado, del grado de combustion y, en general, de las condiciones de irradiacion del combustible. Cabe preguntarse, entonces, si es posible emplear cualquier clase de plutonio como combustible en los reactores de neutrones rapidos. Con el proposito de estudiar los efectos que ejerce sobre el funcionamiento de los reactores la composicion isotopica del combustible de plutonio, en forma de metal, oxido o carburo, se realizo una serie de calculos de geometria segun una teoria de difusion de 16 grupos, utilizando el conjunto de secciones eficaces de 16 grupos recientemente establecido por Yiftah, Okrent y Moldauer; esos calculos se aplicaron a plutonio de tres composiciones isotopicas diferentes, empezando por {sup 239}Pu puro y aumentando la concentracion de los isotopos de numero masico mas elevado. Se han estudiado sistemas con cuerpos de 800, 1500 y 2500 litros de volumen, que son los tipicos de los reactores generadores rapidos de grandes dimensiones. Se llega a la conclusion de que, si solo se tienen en cuenta los isotopos

    Full Text Available Este artigo propõe o debate a respeito dos principais paradigmas a partir dos quais, usualmente, vêm sendo estudadas as propostas de ampliação dos canais de participação dos cidadãos na gestão das políticas públicas, análises que investigam os processos participativos ou desde o prisma dos "arranjos neocorporativos", ou por meio de uma perspectiva baseada na concepção de "democracia deliberativa". Visando este objetivo, o presente texto centra seus interesses na trajetória de duas das principais instâncias participativas que, nas últimas décadas, foram desenvolvidas no Brasil: os orçamentos participativos e os conselhos de políticas públicas. Estas instâncias foram avaliadas levando em consideração, especialmente, quatro elementos a relações institucionais com os governos; b perfil dos participantes; c âmbito decisório e, d dinâmicas de funcionamento. A partir do estudo destas características, os autores discutem sobre a capacidade dos paradigmas neocorporativo e deliberativo constituírem um modelo analítico consistente para a investigação de estruturas participativas dessemelhantes.This article considers the debate on the major paradigms through which are usually examined the proposals to widen the channels of citizen participation in the management of public policies; studies that examine the participatory processes not only from the prism of the "neo-corporatist arrangements," but also through an approach based on the concept of "deliberative democracy." Aiming at this goal, this paper emphasizes the history of two of the main participatory instances that, in recent decades, have been developed in Brazil: the participatory budgeting and the public policy councils. These instances were evaluated taking into account four aspects in particular: a institutional relationships with the government; b the profile of the participants; c the decision-making context; and d the functioning dynamics.

Apres correction pour tenir compte de la degradation en energie et des dimensions finies de l'assemblage, les resultats sont compares aux solutions approchees de l'equation de transport de Boltzmann. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han empleado un acelerador Van de Graafi, que emitia rafagas de neutrones pulsados del orden del nanosegundo, para estudiar el comportamiento de los neutrones rapidos en conjuntos de metales no multiplicadores. Emplearon esta tecnica de la fuente de neutrones pulsados a fin de medir las secciones eficaces de dispersion inelastica de los neutrones rapidos en el Fe. El metodo empleado es analogo al utilizado para medir las secciones eficaces de absorcion en conjuntos termicos, salvo el hecho de que los tiempos de decrecimiento de los neutrones rapidos son del orden del nanosegundo mas bien que del microsegundo. En estos experimentos, se inyectaron rafagas de neutrones monoenergeticos, del orden del nanosegundo, en conjuntos de Fe de diversas dimensiones. Se observo que, en esos conjuntos, el flujo neutronico decrece exponencialmente con una constante caracteristica. Esta constante de decrecimiento esta constituida por una suma de terminos que representan la perdida de neutrones debidos al escape y a la degradacion energetica. Esta ultima representa una perdida de neutrones toda vez que se emplea un detector neutronico polarizado. El termino de eliminacion correspondiente a la dispersion elastica e inelastica puede determinarse midiendo la constante de decrecimiento en funcion de las dimensiones del conjunto de que se trate. Los autores exponen un procedimiento teorico que permite calcular la medida en que la dispersion elastica contribuye al termino de eliminacion, con lo que puede calcularse subsiguientemente la seccion eficaz de dispersion

    In this work a non-standardized method for on-line diagnostic of high capacity motors based on Ultra Wide Band (UWB) Partial Discharge (PD) measuring techniques is theoretically supported, implemented and applied. The method developed is non invasive and consist in the measurement of PD in the main motor power supply cables and its ground shields connection using a near field sensor (Rogowski coil, clamp-on type) with a bandwidth of 2 to 40 MHz. The measured signals by the sensor, are stretched electronically, digitized and fed to a conventional Partial Discharge digital detector. The UWB PD detection system used displays the output in a Pulse repetition frequency-Charge-Phase angle (N-Q-?) PD pattern. The results obtained in thirteen 2500 H.P., 13.8 kV motors performed during operating in an Oil Pumping facility are presented, including its analysis and comparison with values and PD patterns reported in literature. [Spanish] En este trabajo se presentan los fundamentos teoricos, la implementacion y aplicacion de un metodo no normalizado, para el diagnostico en linea de motores de gran capacidad, basado en la deteccion de Descargas Parciales (DP) utilizando tecnicas de medicion de Banda Ultra Ancha. El metodo desarrollado es no invasivo y consiste en la medicion de las DP en los conductores y conexiones a tierra de la pantalla de los cables principales de suministro de energia al motor, utilizando un sensor de campo cercano (bobina Rogowski, tipo gancho) cuyo ancho de banda de medicion es de 2 a 40 MHz. Las senales medidas por el sensor son electronicamente procesadas para ampliar su duracion, digitalizadas y enviadas a un detector digital de Descargas Parciales convencional. El sistema de deteccion de DP en Banda Ultra Ancha despliega la medicion en un patron de DP tipo frecuencia de repeticion de Pulso-Carga-Angulo de fase (N-Q-?).

    This paper discusses the development of methods for calculating intermediate and fast reactors. It deals with various approaches to the problems of physical calculation. The calculation of resonance effects is discussed. Consideration is given to multi-group systems of fundamental and conjugate equations, various applications of perturbation theory to the problems of physical reactor calculation, and numerical methods of solving fundamental and conjugate reactor equations, which approximate the method of spherical harmonics. The paper describes an application of the response method to the solution of critical-mass problems, and methods of calculating reactors with hydrogeneous moderators. The fundamental features of an effective one-group reactor model are described.

    sensores y actuadores. En la actualidad este tipo de centrales tiende a dominar el mercado de generacion electrica por medio de combustibles fosiles, debido a que son las mas eficientes, rentables, de operacion flexible y con menor impacto ambiental. En la CGCC, la turbina de vapor (TV) es una componente fundamental, ya que representa la ganancia del proceso en el sentido de que permite la generacion de energia electrica adicional al aprovechar los gases de escape de la turbina de gas. En caso de que la TV falle, la eficiencia global del proceso se reduce hasta en un 40%. Por lo anterior, en este trabajo se desarrollo un sistema de diagnostico de fallas basado en modelos, de acuerdo a la metodologia FDI (Fault Detection and Isolation) de la teoria de control, con capacidad para detectar y localizar fallas en los sensores y actuadores del turbogenerador a vapor de una CGCC. El enfoque que se utilizo emplea la redundancia analitica con el objetivo de optimizar la redundancia fisica, de manera que sea posible disminuir el costo y espacio extra que implica el utilizar dispositivos repetidos. El diseno del sistema se llevo a cabo usando el analisis estructural AE) que es una herramienta basada en la teoria de grafos y ciencias de la computacion. El AE permitio realizar: analisis de monitoreabilidad, detectabilidad y aislabilidad del proceso; y proporciono la secuencia de computo de las variables no monitoreadas (desconocidas) para obtener las relaciones de redundancia analitica. Para validar el sistema de diagnostico de fallas de la TV, se programaron los algoritmos de deteccion y localizacion de fallas en LabWindows, CVI y se integraron al simulador de la CGCC. Ademas para facilitar al usuario la visualizacion de la presencia de una falla se desarrollo una interfase grafica que indica el elemento con comportamientos anormales, ya sea sensor o actuador.

Le memoire traite de la variation de la pression en fonction du volume libre (densite du combustible) et de la temperature. Des gaines en materiaux tres resistants, comme l'Inconel-X et le molybdene, ont pu supporter la pression des gaz de fission aux temperatures de fonctionnement . Malheureusement, les sections efficaces d'absorption de ces materiaux sont plus elevees que celle de l'aluminium. Les resultats de calculs multigroupes sont presentes, pour montrer comment ces materiaux de gainage et la diminution de la densite du combustible influent sur la masse critique et le rapport de surgeneration dans les reacteurs surgenerateurs de petites ou moyennes dimensions. (author) [Spanish] El costo del ciclo de combustible y el periodo de duplicacion en los reactores reproductores de neutrones rapidos dependen en gran medida del grado de combustion que pueda alcanzarse. La utilizacion de combustible en forma de oxido o de carburo permite obtener un grado de combustion de 100 000 MWd/t. Cuando se emplean elementos combustibles con revestimiento, el aumento de presion de los gases de fision constituye un factor limitativo. En el caso del elevado grado de combustion previsto, una fraccion considerable de los gases de fision penetra en los peros del material, contribuyendo asi a aumentar la presion en el interior de la envoltura. Sobre la base de los rendimientos de fision y de las cadenas de desintegracion conocidas, el autor ha evaluado la produccion de gas y el aumento de presion. Para calcular la presion ejercida sobre la envoltura, ha empleado tres modelos fisicos en que el gas estaba contenido en poros conectados entre si, en poros separados, o en un orificio central. El autor analiza la variacion de la presion, en funcion del volumen libre (densidad del combustible) y de la temperatura. Las envolturas de

(author) [Spanish] La teoria de los sistemas acoplados fue ampliamente desarrollada por Avery y sus colaboradores en el Argonne National Laboratory. Una de las caracteristicas mas interesantes de los sistemas acoplados es la prolongacion de la vida efectiva de los neutrones. La componente termica actua como una especie de retardador neutronico. Como en la teoria de los neutrones retardados, el efecto retardador desaparece cuando la reactividad adquiere un valor suficientemente elevado para que la componente rapida alcance la criticidad independientemente . El autor examina un reactor con acoplamiento en el que la componente rapida sufre un salto instantaneo de reactividad {alpha}{sub 0}. La temperatura aumenta como consecuencia del incremento del nivel de potencia y comienzan a actuar dos coeficiente termicos: el que corresponde a la componente rapida y el coeficiente de temperatura de la componente termica. El problema se estudia en relacion con un grupo de neutrones retardados (en el sentido corriente del termino). El autor presenta una serie de formulas que expresan la vida efectiva de los neutrones y el coeficiente de temperatura en las diferentes etapas del salto de reactividad.

Tambien se deduce de estos experimentos que la eficacia biologica relativa es funcion de la dosis.

    rapidement que les plaques en uranium appauvri, la possibilite d'un effet Doppler positif net est beaucoup plus grande dans le cas d'un reacteur experimental que dans celui du reacteur surgenerateur de puissance equivalent. Ce danger a ete etudie pour un certain nombre de montages possibles. Les calculs montrent que, pour un reacteur de puissance zero, le coefficient de Doppler n'atteint une valeur dangereuse que lorsqu'il s'agit de reacteurs ayant les spectres d'energie neutronique tres mous qui caracterisent les grands reacteurs surgenerateur de puissance a oxyde. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han estudiado la posibilidad, el mecanismo y las consecuencias que produciria la fusion u otros accidentes nucleares graves en el caso de los reactores experimentales rapidos de potencia cero del tipo ZPR-III de cuerpo dividido. Este estudio se completo con una evaluacion de la importancia del efecto Doppler en un gran numero de reactores de ese tipo. Los autores demuestran que es muy improbable que se produzca una fusion del reactor debido a que en la practica dificilmente pueden concurrir las circunstancias necesarias. Despues de discutir el mecanismo del fallo, presentan los resultados de calculos neutronicos e hidrodinamicos combinados relativos a dos conjuntos de potencia cero. Se ha escogido para este estudio un cuerpo de 1200 litros, porque corresponde a un reactor relativamente grande con un cuerpo de composicion corriente. Tambien, se estudio el caso de un cuerpo mas pequeno con una elevada fraccion de vacio, que puede presentar un peligro mayor. Se comprobo que el comportamiento en funcion del tiempo es muy distinto para cada sistema. Al producirse un accidente subito en un conjunto critico de potencia cero, los atomos de {sup 235}U, separados en forma de placas de uranio enriquecido, se calientan muy rapidamente, en tanto que el resto del cuerpo permanece relativamente frio, de manera que se formaran vapores de {sup 235}U cuya presion provocara la ruptura del sistema.

    Full Text Available Este artículo describe y analiza el diseño colaborativo de un proyecto de investigación de ciencia ciudadana a través de la cocreación. Tres grupos de estudiantes de centros de educación secundaria y un equipo de científicos idearon de forma participada tres experimentos sobre comportamiento humano y capital social en espacios públicos y urbanos. El objetivo del estudio es abordar cómo pueden integrarse en una investigación científica el trabajo interdisciplinar y la atención a preocupaciones y necesidades sociales, así como la construcción colectiva de preguntas de investigación. Los 95 estudiantes participantes en el proyecto respondieron una encuesta para evaluar su percepción sobre las dinámicas y herramientas utilizadas en el proceso de cocreación de cada experimento, y los cinco científicos respondieron a una entrevista semiestructurada. Los resultados de las encuestas y entrevistas demuestran cómo la ciencia ciudadana puede alcanzar una modalidad «cocreada» más allá del paradigma habitual «contributivo», el cual únicamente suele implicar al público o amateurs en la recopilación de datos. Esta modalidad de ciencia más colaborativa con la ciudadanía fue posible gracias a la adecuación de materiales y mecanismos de facilitación, así como al fomento de aspectos clave en una investigación como pueden ser la confianza, la creatividad y la transparencia. Los resultados apuntan también hacia la posibilidad de adoptar estrategias similares de codiseño en otros contextos de colaboración científica y generación colaborativa de conocimiento

    une grande influence sur la propagation des neutrons dans la matiere va de plusieurs dizaines de keV, pour les noyaux lourds, a plusieurs dizaines de MeV pour les noyaux intermediaires. Pour evaluer les effets de resonance lors du calcul des parametres de groupes, il faut connaitre non seulement les sections efficaces d'interaction moyenne entre les neutrons et la matiere, mais aussi certaines valeurs telles que (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), etc. - les signes () signifiant que l'on prend la moyenne du groupe d'energie. Actuellement, les donnees dont on dispose sur les parametres de resonance dans le domaine des neutrons rapides ne sont pas suffisantes pour calculer ces moyennes avec la precision necessaire. A cet egard il est interessant de mesurer directement les moyennes (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}) et d'autres caracteristique s analogues. Les auteurs decrivent les resultats obtenus par la mesure d'un certain nombre de parametres tels que ({Sigma}{sub t}), ({Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 3}), etc. qui caracterisent la structure de la section efficace de divers noyaux intermediaires dans une gamme d'energie allant de 300 keV a 3 MeV. On est parvenu a mesurer ces moyennes par une analyse des courbes de transmission obtenues grace a une bonne configuration geometrique pour des taux de transmission allant jusqu'a {approx}10{sup -2}. Les donnee recueillies montrent que les effets de resonance influent fortement sur les caracteristiques de diffusion de la matiere.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo trata da descrição analítica do programa de intervenção Comunidade Ativa no semi-árido baiano, a partir da realização dos processos de capacitação de Fóruns dos municípios integrantes do Programa Faz Cidadão. Objetivamos, com este estudo, discutir a proposta metodológica do trabalho, a operacionalização do Programa e a sobrevivência dos Fóruns locais dentro dos princípios conceituais de sustentabilidade. Tais programas governamentais pretendem estimular a constituição e capacitação de espaços de locução e negociação (Fóruns, representativos de comunidades com baixo idh, que possam contemplar peculiaridades locais, na construção de processos educacionais emancipatórios para o Desenvolvimento Local Integrado e Sustentável (DLIS. Apesar desta clareza de propósitos, nem sempre ocorre uma sinergia nas ações das esferas do poder público e da comunidade. A estratégia política e educacional do planejamento participativo deve, portanto, ser pensada e construída de modo a articular, efetivamente, as ações dos diferentes parceiros. As potencialidades de transformação de tais processos de intervenção são tão significativas quanto os problemas que devem enfrentar. O não enfrentamento das dificuldades pode, na ação de qualquer um dos parceiros, inocente ou intencionalmente, significar a manutenção do status quo através de uma proposta de transformação.This paper describes and analyses a governmental development program called "Comunidade Ativa" in its "Programa Faz Cidadão" version, designed for Bahia's arid inlands. Through the concepts of sustainability, it discusses its proposals for community leadership training courses and analyzes its methodological approach, its working procedures and the survival of its community fora. Such governmental programs intend to stimulate the constitution and ability of negotiation in representatives of communities with a low Human Development Index

    , especialmente cuando se recurre al {sup 64}Cu (periodo: 12,8 h), que puede emplearse en enfermos ambulantes. El grado de concentracion de la sustancia radiactiva en el tumor permite determinar el tipo de este ultimo. Si se combina ese metodo con la angiografla del cerebro se puede diagnosticar aun mejor el tipo del tumor, lo que tiene suma importancia para determinar si una intervencion quirurgica esta indicada. En el estudio que se describe en la memoria los diagnosticos fueron correctos en el 75-80% de todos los casos de tumores cerebrales. Las lesiones que con mayor facilidad se reconocen debido a su gran tendencia a concentrar los isotopos son los meningiomas, los abscesos y los glioblastomas, mientras que los oligodendrogliomas y los astrocitomas, que son menos capaces de concentrar la sustancia radiactiva, resultan mas dificiles de reconocer. Un grupo de astrocitomas y casi ninguno de los tumores epidermoideos son capaces de concentrar la sustancia radiactiva asi que, en este grupo, es importante confirmar el diagnostico por angiografia del cerebro. El metodo de la exploracion positronica ha demostrado su gran utilidad para descartar la presencia de tumores en casos en que se sospecha epilepsia sintomatica; el diagnostico ha resultado correcto en el 90% de dichos casos. La combinacion de la electroencefalografia y la exploracion ha sido tan eficaz para diagnosticar como para descartar la presencia de tumores, gracias a lo cual se ha podido renunciar a la arteriografia y a la hospitalizacion del enfermo cuando los resultados han sido negativos y no se han observado sintomas clinicos. El valor de ese metodo para examinar pacientes ambulantes ha quedado, por lo tanto, claramente demostrado.

Para comprobar estas hipotesis se ha realizado una serie de experimentos en los que se activo KIO{sub 3} solido con neutrones rapidos y termicos. En el caso de los neutrones rapidos, la retencion de {sup 128}I fue sensiblemente mayor que la de {sup 126}I, pero la retencion de {sup 128}I alcanzada con los neutrones termicos fue aun mas elevada que la obtenida con los neutrones rapidos. Este hecho indica que, aparte del esquema de desintegracion, la energia de retroceso tambien puede constituir un factor determinante de la retencion. Tambien difieren los efectos del recocido en el {sup 128}I y en el {sup 126}I (obtenidos ambos con neutrones rapidos). Por tratamiento postirradiatorio a temperaturas de hasta 100 Degree-Sign C, la retencion de ambos isotopos referida a la actividad total aumento en la misma proporcion, esto es, la diferencia de retencion permanecio constante. Por tanto, la parte de la fraccion de {sup 126}I reducida por el proceso de retroceso que excede de la fraccion de {sup 128}I reducida, resulta mucho menos afectada por el calentamiento que la fraccion reducida de ambos isotopos. Es evidente que solo un modelo bastante detallado permite explicar ese comportamiento quimico tan complicado del atomo radiactivo de retroceso.

    As a complement to the attached code 3D neutron-CIEMAT thermohydraulic added a module to simulate transient. Temporary kinetics is resolved by factoring flow in a spatial part and another storm. MCNP provides the reactivity and updated spatial function and COBRA-IV calculates the temperature distribution. Temporary dependence of amplitude is calculated using time delayed neutron Kinetic equations. As an example of application, examines a transient loss of flow in MYRRHA, a lead-cooled experimental reactor.

    Full Text Available Las Sigatokas negra y amarilla son enfermedades causadas por Mycosphaerella fijiensis y Mycosphaerella musicola respectivamente. Estas dos especies de hongos estrechamente relacionadas y morfológicamente similares, causan necrosis severa en las hojas de banano y plátano disminuyendo el área de tejido fotosintético y acelerando la maduración del fruto. Las enfermedades producidas por estos hongos afectan la mayoría de las áreas cultivadas de banano y plátano a nivel mundial, generando un gran problema económico y ambiental. Los síntomas que produce cada uno de estos patógenos en el cultivo son similares, por lo que su correcta identificación en campo se hace difícil. Con el fin de hacer una identificación precisa de cada uno de ellos decidimos estandarizar una prueba diagnóstica basada en la reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR utilizando dos oligonucleótidos de 21 bases (MF 137 y MM 137 específicos para cada una de las especies M. fijiensis y M. musicola respectivamente.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO : Avaliar a qualidade dos serviços de saúde de atenção básica e pronto atendimento quanto ao diagnóstico da tuberculose pulmonar. MÉTODOS : Estudo transversal, com 90 profissionais de saúde da atenção básica e 68 de pronto atendimento de Ribeirão Preto, em 2009. Foi utilizado questionário estruturado com base em um instrumento de avaliação da atenção à tuberculose. Utilizaram-se os testes Qui-quadrado e exato de Fisher (ambos com nível de significância estatística de 5% e a análise de correspondência múltipla para estimar associação entre serviço de saúde e as variáveis de estrutura e processo para o diagnóstico da tuberculose. RESULTADOS : Atenção básica esteve associada à adequada provisão de insumos e recursos humanos, bem como com a solicitação de baciloscopia de escarro. O pronto atendimento associou-se à disponibilidade de equipamento de raio-X, sobrecarga de trabalho e rotatividade de recursos humanos, deficiências na quantidade de profissionais de saúde, disponibilidade de recipiente para coleta de escarro e solicitação baciloscópica de escarro. As ações de diagnóstico permaneceram centradas no médico em ambos os serviços. CONCLUSÕES : Os serviços de pronto atendimento apresentaram fragilidades em sua estrutura para identificar os casos de tuberculose. Lacunas no processo foram identificadas em ambos os serviços de atenção básica e pronto atendimento. É necessária a qualificação dos serviços de saúde que constituem as principais portas de entrada ao sistema de saúde para atender as reformas setoriais que priorizam o diagnóstico oportuno e o controle da tuberculose.

    Full Text Available Campo Quijano está a 30 Km. de la ciudad de Salta y cuenta aproximadamente con 8300 habitantes. En el éjido urbano existen dos borateras que constituyen una fuente puntual de contaminación del aire, suelo y aguas. Se estudió la prevalencia de enfermedades respiratorias en la población urbana en el año 2005. Se trabajó con los datos de las planillas de consultas diarias externas del Hospital Francisco Herrera. Se consideraron cuatro grupos de afecciones, seleccionados por la sintomatología y su posible asociación con las emisiones gaseosas de las borateras: Rinitis; Catarro en vías aéreas superiores, Espasmos y Tos irritativa. Se estimó y comparó la prevalencia de las enfermedades por barrio con la prueba de X2 y la de los residuales ajustados de Haberman. Los espasmos y catarros en vías aéreas superiores fueron las afecciones más frecuentes en la población de Campo Quijano. En rinitis no se encontraron diferencias entre barrios. El barrio San Roque presentó las mayores prevalencias en CVAs, espasmos y tos irritativa. Barrios cercanos a las borateras presentaron prevalencias dispares, lo que podría relacionarse con características socio-culturales, sanitarias y económicas, entre otros factores de riesgo, no considerados en este diagnóstico.

    Lipoma arborescens is an intraarticular lesion of unknown etiology, consisting of a chronic villous fat proliferation of the synovial membrane. The disease has occasionally been associated with diabetes mellitus, degenerative diseases, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and also rheumatoid arthritis. The diagnosis relies on magnetic resonance imaging evaluation and synovial biopsy. We report a case of a 8-year-old girl with a two year history of bilateral swelling of the knees and elbows. The patient had improvement of the arthritis after starting treatment with conventional drugs. (author)

Se comprobo la utilidad clinica de esta tecnica para diagnosticar embolias pulmonares masivas en el hombre y para descubrir oclusiones vasculares en ciertos pacientes afectados de cor pulmonale. Los estudios en perros permitieron determinar la rapidez con que progresa la revascularizacion despues de una embolia pulmonar experimental. Se efectuaron varias exploraciones centelleograficas una vez retirados los embolos experimentales. La circulacion se restablecio en todo el pulmon algunas semanas despues de haber eliminado los embolos pulmonares cronicos en los perros. Los agregados de seroalbumina humana han conservado su poder antigenico en los conejos, los cobayos y los perros, pero los estudios realizados no han permitido comprobar que las particulas tengan poder antigenico alguno en el hombre. Gracias al rapido metabolismo de los macroagregados, la dosis de radiacion recibida por el paciente se mantiene bastante inferior a los valores admisibles.

Des experiences a l'aide du spectre de fission bien defini provenant d'un assemblage critique non blinde fournissent constamment des evaluations de dose de neutrons ne s'ecartant pas plus de 10% en plus et en moins des mesures dosimetriques de reference. En outre, du fait de la position anatomique fixe des echantillons pileux, on. peut connaitre l'orientation et le parametre d'asymetrie de l'exposition en comparant les activites specifiques d'echantillons provenant de differentes regions du corps.

Ainsi, le dosage du {sup 32}P sur le systeme pileux fournit des renseignements complementaires de grande valeur que l'on peut comparer avec les evaluations de l'exposition totale du corps aux neutrons par la mesure de la teneur du sang en {sup 24}Na. Des estimations du rendement de fission, fondees sur les geometries deduites dans chaque cas, concordent bien avec les evaluations independantes des fissions totales obtenues par des methodes analytiques plus classiques.

    Full Text Available Audiovisual participative methodologies based on participative social documentaries and group work in participative action research (PAR represent a new constructive epistemology in which the protagonist moves from being the documentary’s object of study to becoming an active agent in telling their story and how the story happens in community. The protagonist, reconfigured as the subject of the enunciation though participative methodologies, makes it possible to create experiences of documentary film-making that constitute a new theoretical and practical corpus, establishing new links between various knowledge users, developing creative methods which can contribute to our ideas of what constitutes education and knowledge transfer.

    La violencia en las escuelas es reconocida como un problema de salud pública a nivel mundial que impacta negativamente el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje. Sin embargo, en Puerto Rico las estadísticas oficiales y los medios de comunicación generalmente se enfocan en hechos aislados de violencia extrema donde se utilizan armas o se destruye propiedad y no recogen formas de violencia más comunes que suelen ocurrir a diario en las escuelas. En este estudio se utilizó el Instrumento de Observación de Violencia Escolar (INOVE), preparado con el insumo de las comunidades escolares participantes del Proyecto VIAS (Violence and Asthma Health Disparity Network) de la Universidad del Este (UNE), para recopilar información acerca de las características de la violencia en dos escuelas puertorriqueñas. Entre los hallazgos del estudio se destacan diferencias por sexo en cuanto a categorías de violencia observadas y la observación de agresividad en juegos e interacciones entre estudiantes. Los datos recopilados han servido de base para la toma de decisiones en cuanto a la prevención de la violencia en las escuelas participantes y tienen implicaciones para el desarrollo de estrategias y programas de prevención.

    Full Text Available The main objective in this essay is making a reflection upon the potentialities presented by the recentmunicipal master plans in Brazil compared to the traditional plans, because the City Statute (2001brought a new meaning to these plans when designating them “participative master plans”, in the orientationof formulation of plans on the perspective of an effective popular participation. In order to reachthis goal, the concrete experience of two study objects will be developed: the Participative Master Planand the Participative Budget. The city of Londrina/Paraná will be taken to check the application of theassumptions of popular participation on the production of the municipal master plan, and the city ofPorto Alegre/Rio Grande do Sul, as an example of the participative budget application.

    Full Text Available El artículo revisa los conceptos clave de la comunicación para el desarrollo y el cambio social desde sus orígenes, en los años posteriores a la Segunda Guerra Mundial, hasta nuestros días. Dos corrientes principales se distinguen durante las cinco décadas pasadas: por una parte, una comunicación inspirada en las teorías de la modernización y en técnicas derivadas de las estrategias de información utilizadas por el gobierno de Estados Unidos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y por la industria norteamericana para publicitar sus productos comerciales; y por otra, una comunicación nacida de las luchas sociales anticoloniales y antidictatoriales del Tercer Mundo, que tienen su referente académico en las teorías de la dependencia.

    The Participative Budget system has been recognized as one of the most innovative initiatives for the democratization of local management and the exercise of participative democracy at the town level. In Argentina the program started in 2002, in the conjuncture of a profound political and institutional crisis. After being at work for six year the questions is: to what extent does the program shows the capability to expand citizens´ participation in the public affairs, to optimize the accountability, to strengthen the social network and to promote new links between State and society?

The preliminary results indicate that, nevertheless the disposition(programmaticaly assumed or not of the rulers in giving important spaces of power to thecitizens´ group, serious difficulties exist predominantly of implanting with success the“participatory budget” in municipal districts rural. These difficulties are due to historicalrelationships of clientelism and patrimonialism among citizens, state bureaucracy and cannotpublic, and mainly the impossibility of the municipal administration in providing a “ minimum“ of resources (important to be indeed managed for the citizens.

    Full Text Available Nuevas formas de participación democrática y producciones colaborativas de audiencias diversas han surgido como resultado de las innovaciones digitales en el acceso y consumo de noticias. El objetivo de este estudio es proponer un marco conceptual basado en las posibilidades de la Web 2.0. Describiendo la construcción de una «lógica social», que se combina con las lógicas comunicativa y computacional, se construye el marco teórico para explorar la evolución en el consumo de noticias desde una mera circulación de productos diseñados, hacia una conversación global de diseñadores proactivos de noticias. Este marco teórico se ha testeado a través de una base de datos empírica del Instituto de investigación PEW, que mediante una encuesta con adultos a gran escala permite analizar el futuro de la industria de las noticias. Los resultados muestran diferencias significativas (por edad, sexo y nivel educativo en las formas de participación, acceso y consumo de noticias. Aunque existe una cultura Web 2.0, hay un bajo nivel de participación de usuarios en la producción de noticias; lejos de ser diseñadores proactivos de noticias, los hallazgos sugieren que la mayoría de ciudadanos se sitúan en los niveles de participación más bajos del marco conceptual propuesto. Se concluye sugiriendo la necesidad de que los responsables de la educación en medios desarrollen iniciativas formativas acordes a las posibilidades de la lógica social a través de la propuesta de pautas.

L'EBR des neutrons de 14 MeV par rapport aux rayons gamma de {sup 60}Co semble etre d'au moins 20 pour la mutation somatique. (author) [Spanish] El autor estudio la EBR de los neutrones de 14 MeV con respecto a los rayos gamma del {sup 60}Co por el metodo del locus especifico en el trigo escanda menor. Empleo semillas Fi obtenidas por cruza entre la cepa original y el mutante chlorina (este ultimo se obtuvo como mutante recesivo unico por exposicion a los rayos X; conserva un color verde palido desde que germina hasta que alcanza la madurez, con indices de supervivencia y fertilidad relativamente elevados). Las plantas Fj presentan el color verde normal y tambien es normal la modalidad de desarrollo. El autor irradio las semillas de Fx latentes con neutrones rapidos (en dosis de 0,5 - 1,0 y 1,4 krad) y con rayos gamma (4 ,3 - 8,6 y 12,9 krad). Ambas radiaciones provocaron mutaciones del verde normal dominante al tono chlorina, que aparecio en las hojas y tallos de las plantas heterocigoticas en forma de rayas longitudinales. Alrededor del 80% de las semillas germino en el grupo testigo y en los grupos expuestos a los neutrones y rayos gamma en dosis bajas, pero el porcentaje de semillas germinadas fue decreciendo gradualmente a medida que aumentaba la dosis de ambos tipos de radiacion. Ademas, se observo una tendencia similar en la primera fase d el desarrollo de la plantula, que se inhibe paulatinamente al aumentar la dosis. De acuerdo con estos resultados, la irradiacion neutronica Inverted-Question-Mark s unas 13 veces mas eficaz que los rayos gamma. El in d ic e de supervivencia en el grupo testigo, no irradiado, fue del orden de 90%; en los grupos expuestos a los neutrones a razon de dosis de 0,5 y 1,0 krad

    intracraneanas. Se efectuaron radioanalisis de los principales tejidos encefalicos normales, de diversos tipos de neoplasmas, de hematomas, abscesos y zonas de desmielinizacion obtenidos por biopsia. Se observe que el arsenico administrado alcanza una concentracion 30 veces mayor en los meningiomas que en el tejido normal del cerebro. El isotopo alcanza una concentracion decreciente en los otros principales tipos de tumores, a saber: neuroma acustico, glioblastoma, metastasis maligna y astrocitoma. El alto grado de absorcion arsenical del tumor persiste lo suficiente como para asegurar el buen resultado de las exploraciones repetidas un dia despues de la inyeccion. La razon de las concentraciones musculo/cerebro, 3 aproximadamente, es lo suficientemente alta como para afectar la exactitud del diagnostico en lesiones situadas por debajo del hueso temporal inferior y, especialmente, de las masas musculares de la region superior de la nuca. Por su parte, en los hematomas, abscesos y zonas de desmielinizacion, las razones respectivas son lo suficientemente elevadas como para permitir su localizacion en la mayoria de los pacientes. Los resultados en biopsias de tejidos que contenian etilendiaminotetra-acetat o de cobre arrojaron razones similares, en la medida en que las pocas muestras estudiadas permiten asegurarlo. Los meningiomas constituyen probablemente una excepcion, por cuanto en el caso del cobre el indice de absorcion es mas bajo. Basandose en el radioanalisis, tanto de la secrecion urinaria como de toda la gama de tejidos obtenibles en la autopsia, los autores calculan que luego de administrar la dosis exploradora habitual de 2,3 milicuries de arsenico-74 a un individuo de 70 kg, la radiacion total emitida por el cuerpo es del orden de 3,2 rads. El rinon recibe aproximadamente 12,7 rads y el higado 9,7 rads. Las cifras correspondientes para el cobre-64 son 0,325 rads para la totalidad del cuerpo, pero la dosis hepatica asciende a 3,2 rads porque el higado absorbe

Los estudios realizados con el proposito de construit un espectrometro pequeflo para neutrones rapidos con buenas caracteristicas de estabilidad, poder de resolucion y sensibilidad, destinado a la medicion de espectros neutronicos dentro del reactor, en el intervalo energetico de las decenas o centenares de kilovoltios, se han concentrado en el empleo del analisis de la forma de los impulsos (con el fin de rechazar los sucesos iniciados por los rayos gamma en los contadores proporcionales de retroceso de hidtogeno) y el empleo de la colimacion en los detectores tipo sandwich, a base de {sup 6}LiF en un material solido, a fin de aumentar el poder de resolucion. Se ha construido cierto ndmero de instrumentes de este tipo y se esta estudiando la forma en que se comportan frente a los neutrones monocineticos y los neutrones de un reactor. Recurriendo a la tecnica de rechazo de los rayos gamma, se ha podido reducir varios cientos de veces la sensibilidad del contador de retroceso frente a dichos rayos y de esta manera, el limite inferior de aplicacion del instrumente se ha extendido por lo menos hasta los 30 keV. En cuanto a los instrumentes de semiconductors a base de {sup 6}Li, se han observado poderes de resolucion de hasta 70 keV de amplitud total en correspondencia con la mitad del maximo (1,5%) para la suma de los impulsos, en la irradiaeion con neutrones termicos.

    Current standard for most of the locally advanced rectal cancers is preoperative chemoradiotherapy, and, variably per institution, postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. Short-course preoperative radiation with delayed surgery has been shown to induce tumour down-staging in both randomized and observational studies. The concept of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy has been proven successful in gastric cancer, hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer and is currently tested in primary colon cancer. Patients with rectal cancer with high risk features for local or systemic failure on magnetic resonance imaging are randomized to either a standard arm or an experimental arm. The standard arm consists of chemoradiation (1.8 Gy x 25 or 2 Gy x 25 with capecitabine) preoperatively, followed by selective postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. Postoperative chemotherapy is optional and may be omitted by participating institutions. The experimental arm includes short-course radiotherapy (5 Gy x 5) followed by full-dose chemotherapy (capecitabine and oxaliplatin) in 6 cycles before surgery. In the experimental arm, no postoperative chemotherapy is prescribed. Surgery is performed according to TME principles in both study arms. The hypothesis is that short-course radiotherapy with neo-adjuvant chemotherapy increases disease-free and overall survival without compromising local control. Primary end-point is disease-free survival at 3 years. Secondary endpoints include overall survival, local control, toxicity profile, and treatment completion rate, rate of pathological complete response and microscopically radical resection, and quality of life. Following the advances in rectal cancer management, increased focus on survival rather than only on local control is now justified. In an experimental arm, short-course radiotherapy is combined with full-dose chemotherapy preoperatively, an alternative that offers advantages compared to concomitant chemoradiotherapy with or without postoperative chemotherapy. In a multi-centre setting this regimen is compared to current standard with the aim of improving survival for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.

    Full Text Available The development of the Brazilian chemistry sector, during the last 30 years, is nowadays being attributed to PADCT (Science and Technology Development Program. Since the seventies, the Government took notice of the importance of research in chemistry for the Brazilian economy, therefore creating PADCT to support chemistry and chemical engineering among other areas of science and technology. Planning and implementation of the second phase of this program represented a real joint strategic planning. Since then, academic research and human resources education have experienced significant improvements. However, in the chemical trade, the deficit continues to grow, in spite of an almost constant ratio between importation costs and export revenues. Continued investments for research in the area remain necessary.

    Full Text Available People’s participation in the construction of the urban space is an inalienable right of citizenship and it is also a measure through which democracy can be evaluated. These new dynamics , guaranteed by legislation and desired by citizens, provoke changes in space production processes that are more dialogical and opened to new and unexpected events. These new realities sure affect the graduation of this new architect, who, beyond technical capacitation, will have to learn and be responsive to social-cultural dynamics in a different way,one that encompasses the idea of the exchange of knowledge and is not demagogical.

    Full Text Available The aim of this work is to show an experiment from which students can learn some of the main characteristics of buffer solutions. A mixture of some acid-base indicators, named as Yamada's indicator, can be used to estimate pH values in an acid-base titration of a buffer, with good approximation. In the experiment it is also possible to verify the relationship between the buffer capacity and the concentrations and the molar ratio of the components of a NH3 / NH4+ buffer solution. The shortage of experiments associated with the relative small importance given to many aspects of buffer solutions, is now explored with simplicity. In the proposed experiments, students prepare buffer solutions by themselves, calculate the pH, understand how acid-base indicators act and learn how buffer solutions work through graph constructed by sharing experimental data.

    Full Text Available The right to participation and to be heard is granted to children in a society that is culturally and historically constructed with reference to adults and that also conceives childhood as a "becoming". This paper aims to discuss children´s participation in the participatory budgeting of a Brazilian northeastern municipality, from a theoretical discussion based on Leontiev´s Human Activity Theory. Human activity, understood in its mediation role in the human being - material world relationship -, makes it possible to think about children´s participation by relating it to the activity that is taken into account and, hence, to the actions and operations undertaken to develop this activity, considering its appropriation by children within culturally configured contexts.

    Full Text Available The Participatory Budget has been described in literature as a democratic innovation bearer of virtues, whether in the capacity for rationalization of state action, is the potential to alter historical patterns of relationship State x Society in Brazil, such as clientelism. Recent studies also point to possible impacts of experience in attitudinal and behavioral patterns of participants, so the OP would produce some kind of political learning. Looking empirically explore these potential positive effects of this study is to examine to what extent the participatory involvement in this institution can be understood as conditioning or determining a set of indicators collected by the conventional literature on the label of political culture. Therefore, we intend to question whether it is possible, from participatory institutional innovations, produce changes in the pattern of subjective orientations and attitudes of citizens. To achieve these goals we take as a set of empirical data on the experience of participatory budgeting in Porto Alegre developed. Such information comes from one survey conducted by the Center for Research on Latin America (NUPESAL for the year 2000.The paper is organized into three parts: First, we discuss the theoretical issues involved in this debate. On Monday, we present the empirical data. In the end, we set out some conclusions and perspectives for further work.

    The utilization of radioactive sources in medicine, industry and research is associated with a probability of accidental overexposures to ionizing radiation, among which localized irradiation are the most frequent events. Moreover, between 5 and 8 % of the patients undergoing therapeutical irradiations could exhibit a higher individual radiosensitivity which could account for severe skin reactions. Localized overexposures may damage not only epidermis and dermis but also deeper connective tissue, vessels, muscles and even bones. Within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the Buenos Aires Burn Hospital and the National Board of Nuclear Regulation, a Radio pathology Committee has been established in 1997 with the purpose of carrying out a collaborative project concerning diagnosis and treatment of radiological burns. The present document particularly considers radiological burns form the point of view of their physiopathology, physical and biological dosimetry, diagnosis prognosis and treatment. It also includes basic concepts of radiation biology and radio pathology. It could be an useful tool for training medical practitioners and also a practical guidance for organizing medical response in accidental overexposures. (author)

    N. Gentner, UNSCEAR officer declared during the 11 Congress of the IRPA, that the collective dose to patients due to diagnostic radiology represents 150 times the collective dose due to occupational exposures, which can give an idea of the need to dose control in the Radiodiagnosis. The practice types involved as traditional radiography appear to be in reasonable dose, however, computerized tomography and interventional cardiology have dose levels that are a challenge for the community. According to the international conference for the patient radiation protection held in 2001, the risk would be higher for patients undergoing computerized tomography of kidney and liver. Although not normally be expected that the deterministic effects dose are exceeded, in case of multiple tests as computed tomography combined with other procedures (interventional, by example), so if you can reach levels of deterministic effects. The dose indicators are obtained from various parameters such as the radiation output from X-ray tube, the dose-area product, the dose index in computerized tomography and the dose entrance in surface. The dose indices in computerized tomography have several types of indicators. The radiation measurement output of the tubes is in turn based on different conditions and parameters. Personnel occupationally exposed also shrinks risks in proportion to that of the patients, such as interventional radiologists and cardiologists. In the diagnosis also needs to be done, and may include the development of procedures to standardize and normalize the patient dosimetry for all the techniques, implement dosimetry staff at all facilities, recommend the appropriate medical surveillance of personnel occupationally exposed to each practices, create and improve the regulatory framework, particularly in the intervention areas and hybrid images, and establish and improve the census and resources control involved in the medical applications in radiodiagnostic and interventional.

Of these only 36 met the inclusion criteria for this study. Blood analyzes were made, immunological profile, imaging studies, bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial brushing and transbronchial biopsy. The histological sections showed inflammatory response at different stages of evolution, diffuse alveolar damage and intra-alveolar edema. Diagnosis was made from a group of opportunistic diseases such as pneumocystosis, Histoplasmosis, Candida, and injury probably due to Herpes virus and Cytomegalovirus. It emphasizes the participation of more than a germ. In addition there was vasculitis, thrombi, areas of ischemic necrosis, interstitial fibrosis and findings suggestive of pulmonary hypertension. One of the patients showed undifferentiated epithelial malignancy neoplasm. The use of this technique allowed us to evaluate the presence of opportunistic infections and unusual neoplasms and findings suggestive of pulmonary hypertension. Its use is justified, before the need for an etiologic diagnosis and establish the indicated therapy.

    Full Text Available The exponential growth of information and communications technology (ICT together with the standardization of medical message exchange (as proposed by the organization Health Level Seven – HL7 allows interoperability between applications of health systems around the world. An example of such interoperability is seen in different countries of study, in this case Colombia, namely two completely independent systems can communicate with each other, simplifying the integration of information among medical systems. This leads health institutions to a new era of medical care. This article introduces a combination of techniques to design a prototype that facilitates the use of standards such as HL7, which is used for the exchange of medical information through XML within a branch of telemedicine called tele-diagnosis or diagnosis online. This type of diagnosis facilitates the exchange of medical information across a network by means of telematics, either (doctor-patient to provide further information about the patient’s condition or for monitoring purposes, even for doctors to request a second opinion.

    This method relies on the application of an algorithm for the quantitative and statistic differentiation of a sample of cells stricken by a certain kind of pathology and a sample of healthy cells. This differentiation is made by applying the principles of fractal dimension to digital images of the cells. The algorithm was developed using the the concepts of Object- Oriented Programming, resulting in a simple code, divided in 5 distinct procedures, and a user-friendly interface. To obtain the fractal dimension of the images of the cells, the program processes the image, extracting its border, and uses it to characterize the complexity of the form of the cell in a quantitative way. In order to validate the code, it was used a digitalized image found in an article by W. Bauer, developer of an analog method. The result showed a difference of 6% between the value obtained by Bauer and the value obtained the algorithm developed in this work. (author)

    Four adult patients were diagnosed as having dural sinus thrombosis (DST) by means of magnetic resonance (MR). In the three cases of acute thrombosis, MR disclosed diffuse or segmental hyperintensity in the sinuses involved, which persisted regardless of the sequence and orientation of the plane selected. MR angiography (MRA) provided diagnostic information that proved useful in the chronic case, as well as in the two cases in which follow-up was carried out to determine the degree to which permeability was restored to the sinuses involved. MR diagnosis of DST can produce false positives and negatives, the causes of which should be known, as well as the ways to avoid them, in order to prevent diagnostic errors. MR, when applied and interpreted correctly, can be considered the first, and in many cases the only, choice as a diagnostic method in DST. (Author)

    A group of 97 individuals with typical symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was submitted to gastroesophageal reflux scintigraphy (GES) and compared to the results obtained from endoscopy, histopathology and 24 hours pHmetry. Twenty-four healthy individuals were used as a control group and they have done only the GERS. The results obtained showed that: (a) the difference in the reflux index (RI) for the control group and the sick individuals was statistically significant (p < 0.0001); (b) the correlation between GERS and the other methods showed the following results: sensitivity, 84%; specificity, 95%; positive predictive value, 98%; negative predictive value, 67%; accuracy, 87%. We have concluded that the scintigraphic method should be used to confirm the diagnosis of GERD and also recommended as initial investiative procedure. (author)

    The main nuclear reactors technology for the Generation IV, on development phase for utilization after 2030, is the fast reactor type with high temperature output to improve the efficiency of the thermo-electric conversion process and to enable applications of the generated heat in industrial process. Currently, water electrolysis and thermo chemical cycles using very high temperature are studied for large scale and long-term hydrogen production, in the future. With the possible oil scarcity and price rise, and the global warming, this application can play an important role in the changes of the world energy matrix. In this context, it is proposed a fast reactor with very high output temperature, {approx} 1000 deg C. This reactor will have a closed fuel cycle; it will be cooled by lead and loaded with nitride fuel. This reactor may be used for hydrogen, heat and electricity production in Brazil. It is discussed a development strategy of the necessary technologies and some important problems are commented. The proposed concept presents characteristics that meet the requirements of the Generation IV reactor class. (author)

    The importance of liquid sodium lies in its use as a coolant for fast reactors, but why should liquid metal be used as a coolant instead of water? Water is difficult to use as a coolant for a fast nuclear reactor because its acts as a neutron moderator, that is, stop the fast neutrons and converts them to thermal neutrons. Nuclear reactors such as the Pressurized Water Reactor or the Boiling Water Reactor are thermal reactors, which mean they need thermal neutrons for their operation. However, is necessary for fast reactors to conserve as much fast neutrons, so that the liquid metal coolants that do have this capability are implemented. Sodium does not need to be pressurized, its low melting point and its high boiling point, higher than the operating temperature of the reactor, make it an adequate coolant, also has a high thermal conductivity, which is necessary to transfer thermal energy and its viscosity is close to that of the water, which indicates that is an easily transportable liquid and does not corrode the steel parts of the reactor. This paper presents a brief state of the art of the rapid nuclear reactors that operated and currently operate, as well as projects in the door in some countries; types of nuclear reactors which are cooled by liquid sodium and their operation; the mathematical models for obtaining the properties of liquid sodium in a range of 393 to 1673 Kelvin degrees and a pressure atmosphere. Finally a program is presented in FORTRAN named Thermo-Sodium for the calculation of the properties, which requires as input data the Kelvin temperature in which the liquid sodium is found and provides at the user the thermo-physical and thermo-hydraulic properties for that data temperature. Additional to this the user is asked the Reynolds number and the hydraulic diameter in case of knowing them, and in this way the program will provide the value of the convective coefficient and that of the dimensionless numbers: Nusselt, Prandtl and Peclet.

    The fast reactors cooled by sodium are one of the options considered in the Generation IV. Since most of the reactors of Fourth Generation are still in development stage, is necessary to have efficient and reliable computational tools, this in order to obtain accurate results in reasonable computational times. In this paper is introduced and describes the deterministic code KANEXT (KArlsruhe Neutronic EXtended Tool) and is compared against a Monte Carlo code of more diffusion: Serpent. KANEXT, being a modular code requires the interaction of different modules to perform a job, this interaction of modules is described in this article. The parameters to be compared are the results of the neutron multiplication effective factor and the evolution of isotopes during the burning. The mentioned comparison is carried out for a fast reactor cooled by sodium of relatively small size compared to commercial size reactors. In this paper the particularities of the reactor are described, important for the analysis such as geometry, enrichments, reflector, etc. The considerations in the implementation in both codes are also described, as are simplifications, length of the burning steps, possible solutions of the Bateman equations for the burning fuel in Serpent and the solution options for transport (P3) and diffusion (P1) in KANEXT. The results show good correspondence between Serpent and KANEXT, which give confidence to continue using KANEXT as the main tool. Respect to computation time, time saving is evident with the use of deterministic codes instead of Monte Carlo codes, in this particular case, the time savings using KANEXT is about 98.5% of the time used by Serpent.

    This work consists in determining the fast neutron spectra emitted by a Pu-Be isotopic source. The implemented technique is based in the spectrometry (n, p). This consists in making to fall on a fast neutrons beams (polyenergetic) over a thin film of hydrogenated material, detecting the spectra of emitted protons at a fix angle. The polyethylene film and the used solid state detector are inside of a vacuum chamber. The detector is placed at 30 degree with respect to direction of the incident neutrons beam. The protons spectra is stored in a multichannel. the energy is obtained with the prior calibration of the system. The data processing involves the transformation of the protons spectra observed at the falling on neutrons spectra over the film. The energy of the neutrons is related with that of the protons, according to the collision kinematical equations. The cross section of elastic collision of the neutrons with the hydrogen atoms is obtained from literature. Applying these relations to the observed spectra it is obtained the falling on neutron spectra over the film. (Author)

    To study the utility of ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) in case of suspected appendicitis. To determine the diagnostic yield in terms of different clinical contexts and patient characteristics. to assess the costs and benefits of introducing these techniques and propose a protocol for their use. Negative appendectomies, complications and length of hospital stay in a group of 152 patients with suspected appendicitis who underwent ultrasound and CT were compared with those of 180 patients who underwent appendectomy during the same time period, but had not been selected for the first group: these patients costs for each group were calculated. In the first group, the diagnostic value of the clinical signs was also evaluated. The reliability of the clinical signs was limited, while the results with ultrasound and CT were excellent. The incidence of negative appendectomy was 9.6% in the study group and 12.2% in the control group. Moreover, there were fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay in the first group. Among men, however, the rate of negative appendectomy was lower in the control group. The cost of using ultrasound and CT in the management of appendicitis was only slightly higher than that of the control group. Although ultrasound and CT are not necessary in cases in which the probability of appendicitis is low or in men presenting clear clinical evidence, the use of these techniques is indicated in the remaining cases in which appendicitis is suspected. In children, ultrasound is the technique of choice. In all other patients, if negative results are obtained with one of the two techniques, the other should be performed. (Author) 49 refs.

    The nozzles used in high voltage electrical equipment, such as power transformers and circuit breakers, constitute the elements that present greater fault risk. On the other hand, the faults in the nozzles cause, in most of the cases catastrophic damages, that expose to risk the maintenance personnel of the plant and the peripheral equipment. With the purpose of contributing with on-line monitoring techniques that indicate the nozzles condition and allow to anticipate their possible fault, the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) performed for the laboratory of tests of equipment and materials (LAPEM) of Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), a project for the development of a system for the measurement of capacitive currents in these equipments. This system allows to determine the variation in capacitance and dielectric losses, and to determine the presence of internal partial discharges in nozzles of 115, 230 and 400 kV. With this information it is possible to determine the condition of the internal isolation of the nozzles and retire them from service before deterioration takes place that puts in danger the integrity of the equipment. The management of electrical equipment of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas developed for LAPEM a system that measures capacitive currents of power transformer nozzles. This system was designed with the purpose of installing it in a transformer of a 400 kV machine, in the fossil power station of Tula, Hidalgo, of the Comision Federal de Electricidad.

Con la finalidad de aportar tecnicas de monitoreo en linea que indiquen el estado de las boquillas y que permitan prever su posible falla, el Instituto de investigaciones electricas (IIE) realizo para el laboratorio de pruebas de equipos y, materiales (LAPEM) de la Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), un proyecto para el desarrollo de un sistema para la medicion de corrientes capacitivas en estos equipos. Este sistema permite determinar la variacion en capacitancia y perdidas dielectricas, asi como la presencia de descargas parciales internas en boquillas de 115, 230 y 400 kV. Con esta informacion es posible determinar el estado del aislamiento interno de las boquillas y retirarlas del servicio antes de que se produzca un deterioro que ponga en peligro la integridad del equipo. La gerencia de equipos electricos del Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas desarrollo para el LAPEM un sistema que mide corrientes capacitivas de boquillas de transformadores de potencia.

    Objective: The present study was aimed at describing uncommon presentations of intraosseous hemophilic pseudotumor in imaging diagnosis. Materials and methods: Retrospective study evaluating five hemophilic pseudotumors in bones of two patients with hemophilia A. Imaging findings were consensually evaluated by two musculoskeletal radiologists. Plain radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging studies were analyzed. Results: At contrast-enhanced computed tomography images, one of the lesions on the left thigh was visualized with heterogeneously enhanced solid areas. This finding was later confirmed by anatomopathological study. Another uncommon finding was the identification of a healthy bone portion interposed between two intraosseous pseudotumors in the humerus. And, finally, a femoral pseudotumor with extension towards soft tissues and transarticular extension, and consequential tibial and patellar involvement. Conclusion: The above described imaging findings are not frequently reported in cases of intraosseous pseudotumors in hemophilic patients. It is important that radiologists be aware of these more uncommon presentations of intraosseous pseudotumors. (author)

    In regard to verification of medical diagnosis establishments with X radiation, it is very important to the coordination between the competent authorities such as the coordination achieved between the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks attached to the Health Secretary and the National Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards, under the Energy Secretary. The Health Secretary found a subcommittee of environmental health standards to develop the Mexican Official Standards of medical diagnosis with X-rays, with the participation of over 50 institutions and experts in Mexico. The legal framework governing the procedures for health surveillance in radiology include the Health General Law, the Internal Regulation of the Health Secretary, the Regulation of the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks and the Mexican Official Standard NOM-229 SSA1 -2002, {sup T}echnical requirements for the facilities, health responsibilities, technical specifications for the equipment and radiation protection in medical diagnosis establishments with X-rays{sup .} Among the participated institutions in the revision of this standard were federal government agencies, public and private sector institutions, educational institutions and professional associations. The standard establishes criteria for design, construction and facilities maintenance, technical requirements for the acquisition and operation vigilance of equipment, health requirements and patient protection. Standard observance is for establishments that use X-ray generators for its application in humans with purposes of medical diagnosis either fixed or mobile units. It also contains aspects that must be observed by owners of establishments who hold formal, responsible, own X-ray equipment and consultants with expertise in radiation protection. In the field of diagnosis radiology the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks, has the mission to ensure the patients health protection and occupationally exposure personnel in the medical use of ionizing radiation sources, ensuring the existence of radiation protection programs and quality, as well as protect to the general population of derivates risks of the ionizing radiation exposure.

    To describe the most pertinent echographic findings regarding systemic and renal candidiasis in high-risk neonates. Echographic findings and clinical histories of 40 neonates in the neonatal intensive care unit were retrospectively analyzed. Thirty-eight presented systemic candidiasis with renal participation, while two showed only renal candidiasis. Ultrasound scans were performed using 7.5 MHz probes. Alterations in renal echo structure, presence of echogenic material without acoustic shadowing in the excretory system (mycetoma), presence of lithiasis, pyonephrosis and associated renal malformations were all evaluated. Ten patients presented renal alterations in ultrasound scan. Six children had originally shown increased eye-catching in the renal parenchyma which was resolved after medical treatment. Four children presented renal mycetoma, and in two there were renal malformations. Both of these exhibited a profile for pyonephrosis. One patient with renal mycetoma without urological abnormalities developed a lithiasis. Surgical intervention was unnecessary in all cases. The most common echographic findings in immature high-risk low-weight patients with systemic and renal candidiasis were alterations in the eye-catching of renal parenchyma and the presence of mycetoma.

    The concern of the corrosion in buried pipes has increased with the course of time, the aging of the mechanical protection of the piping, results in defects in the coating, exposing the metal to the corrosive ground, in which the piping is lodged. If suitable levels of cathodic protection do not exist, the corrosion phenomenon in these defects is presented originating unexpected faults in the piping, increasing the costs of maintenance and repair, as well as the diminution in the safety during the operation, as much for the workers as for the communities near the installation of ducts. The technique of Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG), besides locating the defects of the coating in a buried pipe (which are corrosion potential sites), determines corrosion status of the defects and its severity as far as the consumption of protection current that each of these absorbs. Nevertheless, all this information acquires a greater relevance, when it is correlated with the operating conditions of the cathodic protection systems, to be able to emit recommendations that lead to the mitigation or eradication of the corrosion problems, together with a good operation of the protection systems. [Spanish] La preocupacion por la corrosion en tuberias enterradas ha ido en aumento con el transcurso del tiempo, debido al envejecimiento de la proteccion mecanica de las tuberias, el cual da como resultado defectos en el recubrimiento, dejando expuesto el metal en suelo corrosivo, en el que se encuentra alojada la tuberia. Si no existen niveles de proteccion catodica adecuados, se propicia el fenomeno de corrosion en estos defectos, originando fallas inesperadas en las tuberias, incrementando a su vez los costos de mantenimiento y reparacion, asi como la disminucion en la seguridad durante la operacion, tanto para los trabajadores como para las comunidades cercanas a las instalaciones de ductos. La tecnica de Gradiente de Voltaje de Corriente Continua (DCVG), ademas de localizar los defectos del recubrimiento en una tuberia enterrada (los cuales son sitios potenciales de corrosion), determina el estatus de la corrosion de los defectos y la severidad en cuanto al consumo de corriente de proteccion que cada uno de estos absorbe. Sin embargo, toda esta informacion adquiere una mayor relevancia, cuando se correlaciona con las condiciones de operacion de los sistemas de proteccion catodica, para poder emitir recomendaciones que conduzcan a la mitigacion o erradicacion de los problemas de corrosion, aunados a una buena operacion de los mismos.

    An evaluation of the Diagnodent equipment (Kavo Company, Germany) for the occlusal caries detection was dane through the comparison with other conventional diagnostic techniques, such as visual inspection, intra-oral micro camera and digital X-ray. The effectiveness of the equipment in the detection of hidden caries and its viability as a diagnosis method for caries in their initial stage was also studied. Fifty eight permanent molars and premolars teeth from patients with age between 6 and 30 years were studied. The obtained results indicated that the conventional methods employed for the caries diagnosis are unable to detect the carious lesion in its initial stage. The Diagnodent equipment has this capability to detect caries presenting a flawless surface, specially the hidden caries, allowing the dentist to decide between a preventive ar a conservative procedure. The main advantage of the Diagnodent is to be an objective method, compared to the visual and radiographic ones, that are dependent on the professional interpretation. The Diagnodent is, therefore, a promising alternative as an objective and standardized diagnosis method for the final diagnostic. (author)

    In the year 2000 the first service of biological dosimetry was requested to the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ), and until the year 2012 have been assisted 52 cases approximately. Most of the cases correspond to workers dedicated to the industrial radiography, followed by the occupationally exposed personnel either in the hospital area or health services and the minority corresponds to individuals linked to research institutions. The incident with more serious consequences to the individual happened to workers that ingested I-131 in the year 2003. Using the biological dosimetry to estimate exposure dose by damage in the lymphocyte chromosomes of each worker has been possible to establish the exposure dose in each one of them, or also to discard the supposed exposure. The dosimetry demonstrates to be an useful tool for situations with exposure suspicion, for example when the reading of thermoluminescent dosimeter of a occupationally exposed personnel does not correspond to the event, or when the personnel forgets to carry his dosimeter, the exposure dose can be determined.

    Full Text Available Se evaluaron 57 explotaciones lecheras representativas del altiplano Norte de Antioquia, correspondientes a los municipios de Belmira, Entrerrios, San Pedro de los Milagros, Don Matías Santa Rosa de Osos, San José de la Montaña y Yarumal. La zona está situada entre 2200 y 2550 msnm y tiene precipitaciones anuales entre 2060 y 4000 mm La topografía predominante es ondulada y los suelos de textura franco-arenosa, son ácidos y de baja fertilidad. Se trabajó mediante una encuesta inicial sobre características generales de la explotación y luego se realizó un monitoreo, durante 6 meses, sobre los parámetros productivos y reproductivos. El análisis de la información se realizó mediante estadística descriptiva. El tamaño de las fincas, predominante en la zona, es de menos de 50 hectáreas y con promedio de 42 animales, en su mayoría de raza Holstein. Los pastos predominantes son kikuyo (Pennisetun clandestinum, y en segundo lugar la falsa poa (Holcus lanalus. Un 90-100 % de las fincas utilizan fertilizante químico y hasta un 70 % de ellas, aplican porquinaza, pero solo un 40-50% utilizan encalamiento; sin embargo es necesaria mucha transferencia tecnológica acerca del manejo adecuado de pasturas. Los insectos plagas chinche (Collaria sp y lorito verde (Draeculacephala sp, causan daño grave en las praderas y se requieren alternativas viables para su control. El uso de suplementos concentrados en vacas y novillas es inadecuado y son requeridas acciones de transferencia tecnológica, relacionadas con el uso eficiente de ellos. Solamente el 24 %de los ganaderos usa inseminación artificial, pero parece ser más importante el problema alimenticio en la zona. La crianza de las terneras se realiza en base a leche, suministrando 200-400 litros en períodos entre 60 y 120 días, con muy poco uso de suplemento concentrado. La producción de leche por vaca/día está entre 10.5-12.1 litros, acorde con el programa alimenticio; siendo claro que las vacas no hacen pico de la curva, debido a desbalance nutritivo. El intervalo entre partos varía entre 396 a 461 días, siendo susceptible de mejorarse también con un mejor programa alimenticio.

    This study aimed to develop a methodology to diagnose energetically a water supply system for a irrigation system and for a city. The steps taken were: the energy quality supplied by the utility in relation to level and unbalanced of the supplied voltage; the electrical energy consumption and demand for the pumping station; the study of the electrical and hydraulic load's characteristics; the tariff and demand contracts optimization; the water storage capacity; and the working hours management. This methodology was tested and validated for the water pumping station in a town of about 70,000 inhabitants. Among the proposed actions, which saved the most, were: the sizing of pumps and motors and the optimization of tariff and demand contracts. It was noted that this methodology is simple and easy to apply and there is a great potential for saving energy up to 52%. (author)

    We evaluated the contribution of radiolabelled methods in the study of the gastroesophageal reflux. Thirty two patients with the clinical aspects of gastroesophageal reflux and endoscopic diagnosis of esophagitis were submitted to dynamic scintigraphy with 99 m{sub Tc}-colloidal. Twenty three subjects formed the control group. Reflux of the radioactive material was noticed into the esophagus in twenty seven patients and in only one control. The methods used were the modified techniques used by Fisher and Velasco, which showed similar results. One concludes that the dynamic scintigraphy is a clinically useful method as an initial investigation to confirm the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux in symptomatic patients with esophagitis.

    Full Text Available El acelerado crecimiento urbano ha provocado, entre otras cosas, el incremento de los asentamientos informales en las periferias latinoamericanas y el aumento de la desigualdad urbana. Una desigualdad creciente que provoca, en muchos casos, una segregación residencial socioeconómica que implica un distanciamiento de los distintos grupos de población que conforman una comunidad. Un fenómeno que se encuentra en aumento en el contexto latinoamericano. En ciudades de tamaño considerable, las experiencias obtenidas en intervenciones de integración y mejoramiento de estos sectores suelen ser enriquecedoras. Sin embargo, ¿qué estrategias podrían ser aplicadas en ciudades intermedias con bajas posibilidades de financiación y presupuestos limitados? Este artículo indaga en el desarrollo de estos procesos en la ciudad de Ibagué-Colombia e intenta encontrar algunas estrategias aplicables desde el diseño de un proyecto de cooperación universitaria. En un inicio establece una aproximación a los aspectos que han fomentado la reproducción de los asentamientos informales en el contexto y sus posibles relaciones con la presencia de segregación residencial socio-económica. Posteriormente, estudia el proceso evolutivo de los asentamientos informales en Ibagué y toma al barrio Las Delicias como laboratorio de experimentación. Finalmente, se plantea un proyecto de cooperación para el mejoramiento barrial de estos sectores.

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the study and development of those institutional innovations conceived to promote participatory practices in contemporary democracies. In a first moment, one considers some of the main arguments addressing the scope, limits and the effects of the institutional design on the political game. Then, the article explores, through a brief history regarded the configuration modes of modern democracies, the relationship between institutional design and political participation. This fact calls the attention to the need of a change in the current institutional design of democracies. Finally, one proposes the idea that three features must be taken into account in any attempt to offer effective mechanisms of participation in the decision-making process: (a to improve citizens' repertoire of skills and political information; (b to pay attention to motivational factors that encourage the involvement in politics; (c to be careful about the setting and the availability of input channels whose goal is to lead the contributions of civil sphere.

    Full Text Available The abandonment of projects is one of the problems faced by institutions involved in promoting rural Mexico, however, there have been experiences that have encouraged their retention. One factor that enables their success, is the participatory approach (EP. Hence the importance of reviewing how institutions can incorporate this approach into their practices. We analyzed the progress of the EP in two institutions (UNCADER and INIFAP and a nongovernmental organization (UGOCP, considering the philosophical and policy factors, as well as the methodological and operational ones. The research was approached as case study from a qualitative and quantitative point of view. Both the institution and its promoter were considered for the research, which involved semi-structured interviews, participants observation and document review. For UNCADER and INIFAP participation represents a methodological tool that improves the efficiency of institutional planning, whereas for UGOCP is a civil right that allows processes of organization mobilization. For UNCADER, participation has been symbolic, therefore real participatory aproech represents a challenge to the organization´s culture. In INIFAP, the birth of a project is a critical point that needs to be strengthened to implement participatory methodologies. Finally, the participatory mechanisms used by UGOCP involve authentic participation

    es una de las areas de investigacion de mas rapido crecimiento en el campo de la IA y el reconocimiento de patrones. Este trabajo explora la posible aplicabilidad de una tecnica de reconocimiento de patrones basada en redes neuronales para la deteccion y la clasificacion de fallas en un SEP. Las tecnicas convencionales de deteccion en los relevadores modernos se basan en un procesamiento digital de senales y requieren de cierto tiempo (alrededor de 1 ciclo) para enviar una senal de disparo, ademas de ser propensas a tomar decisiones incorrectas si las senales se encuentran contaminadas por ruido. Es deseable entonces desarrollar tecnicas que sean rapidas, exactas y robustas y que tengan un buen desempeno ante las condiciones cambiantes del sistema (como variaciones de carga y resistencia de falla, por ejemplo). El objetivo de este trabajo es desarrollar una tecnica novedosa basada en Redes Neuronales Atificales (RNA), la cual explora la aplicabilidad de la propuesta de reconocimiento de patrones para el diagnostico y deteccion de fallas. La tecnica sugerida se basa en el hecho de que cuando ocurre una falla, toma lugar un cambio de impedancia en el sistema y como consecuencia, cambios en la amplitud y fase de las senales de voltajes y corrientes de linea toman lugar. Se desarrolla un discriminador de fallas basado en redes neuronales que es entrenado para detectar estos cambios como indicadores del instante de ocurrencia de la falla. Este detector utiliza valores instantaneos de esas senales para tomar decisiones. Se describe a detalle la aplicabilidad de las redes neuronales como clasificadores de patrones para el diagnostico de fallas en sistemas de transmision y ademas, se presenta un diseno basado en redes neuronales y su ambiente de simulacion para la deteccion y clasificacion de fallas en tiempo real. Se presentan resultados del desempeno de esta tecnica que muestran que es rapida, segura y suficientemente exacta e indican su aplicabilidad dentro de esquemas de

    Application to the safety function of residual heat removal As part of the project {sup S}afety Assessment for Reactor of GEN-IV (SARGEN IV) has been implemented the methodology ISAM from the IAEA to the safety assessment of new sodium reactor designs. Within the ISAM, a new tool to facilitate this assessment is the Objective Provision Tree (OPT) which documents the provisions necessary for each of the levels of defense in depth, as well as for each critical function of security. Due to the design innovations that have sodium reactors, the evaluation of safety and licensing of these reactors requires special considerations. In this work we have analyzed the mechanisms of failure of the safety function concerning the evacuation of waste heat, and have been proposed different provisions for each of the first three levels of defense in depth. The main result of this work is reflected in the elaboration of the OPTs, one for each of the first three levels of defense in depth for the safety of evacuation of residual heat function. These trees represent in a schematic way the provisions necessary to comply with the objectives of each level which are respectively: 1) deviations from normal operation, 2) control of abnormal operation and fault detection and 3) incidental control.

    The work is aimed at obtaining a physical method for neutron flux distribution determination within the reactor core, in order to analyze the project of power increase in the TRIGA IPR-R1 reactor at the Nuclebras Centro de Desenvolvimento da Tecnologia Nuclear (CDTN), located in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The experimental process utilizes the neutron activation technique in impurities of stainless steel welding rods 700 mm long, set in acrylic supports. These rods provide simultaneous information on the thermal and fast neutron fluxes through capture and threshold reactions. The process of detection and counting of activation products utilizes a high resolution Ge (Li) detector and a mechanical scanning device, designed and manufactured at CDTN for burn-up measurements of irradiated fuel elements. Besides its simplicity, the method presents the advantage of substituting high purity imported materials by one easily obtained that also furnishes simultaneous information on the thermal and fast neutron fluxes. Furthermore, values for the absolute thermal neutron flux a long the whole core height are obtained. The procedure consists of the assessment of the thermal neutron flux in a fixed point by means of a conventional detector, and then establishing the correspondence of this measurement with the response of the stainless steel rods.

    The distribution of the exit points, on plasma border, for the lost fast ions during tangential balanced NBI in TJ-II helical axis Stellarator is theoretically analysed, as well for direct as for delayed losses. The link between, the position of those exit points and the corresponding at birth, orbits and drifts is analysed also. It is shown that such relation is rather independent of beam energy and plasma density and is mainly related to the magnetic configuration characteristics. This study is a needed intermediate step to the analysis of impacts of those ions on the vacuum vessel of TJ-II. (Author) 2 refs.

    We applied a laser surface melting treatment to AISIM2 high-speed steel hardened and tempered- and studied the resulting surface characteristics (microstructure) and mechanical behavior (hardness and wear performance). The steel was treated using a Nd:YAG continuous-wave laser with different operation conditions. The influence of the laser processing parameters on the single tracks and on melted surface layer obtained by multipass system with 50% overlap were studied. The microstructure for all conditions is formed by MC- and M{sub 2}C-type carbides, martensite and retained austenite; the quantities of this phase depends on the operations conditions. It has been determined that low levels of power density and high speed scanning of the beam leads to greater homogeneity in the microstructure with high hardness values and wear resistance.

    The breeding fast reactors are interesting because they generate more plutonium than they consume, however, the fuel has to be reprocessed for the generated plutonium is used in another reactor. In a breed/burn reactor (BBR) the plutonium is generated and used -in situ- inside the same reactor, reducing this way costs and the proliferation possibility. In this work, the core of a BBR was designed; cooled by sodium that consists of 210 active assemblies and 7 spaces for control rods, each assembly consists of 169 pines. The design differs from other BBR it includes a blanket in the reactor center. The above-mentioned was to take advantage of the fact by geometry that the population of fast and epithermal neutrons will be high in the area, due to the fissions in adjacent fissile areas. Favorable results were obtained, although not definitive with exchange scheme of spent fuel. Efforts should be made in the future to homogenize the power generation within the reactor and replace the spent assemblies more efficiently. (Author)

    Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor (LFR) has been identified as one of promising future reactor concepts in the technology road map of the Generation IVC International Forum (GIF)as well as in the Deployment Strategy of the European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative (ESNII), both aiming at improved sustainability, enhanced safety, economic competitiveness, and proliferation resistance. This new nuclear reactor concept requires the development of computational tools to be applied in design and safety assessments to confirm improved inherent and passive safety features of this design. One approach to this issue is to modify the current computational codes developed for the simulation of Light Water Reactors towards their applicability for the new designs. This paper reports on the performed modifications of the TRACE system code to make it applicable to LFR safety assessments. The capabilities of the modified code are demonstrated on series of benchmark exercises performed versus other safety analysis codes. (Author)

    The aim of the present work was the obtention of AISI M2 high-speed steel by spray forming technique and the material evaluation when used as machining tool. The obtained material was hot rolled at 50% and 72% reduction ratios, and from which it was manufactured inserts for machining tests. The performance of inserts made of the spray formed material was compared to inserts obtained from conventional and powder metallurgy (MP) processed materials. The spray formed material was chemical, physical, mechanical and microstructural characterised. For further characterisation, the materials were submitted to machining tests for performance evaluation under real work condition. The results of material characterisation highlight the potential of the spray forming technique, in the obtention of materials with good characteristics and properties. Under the current processing, hot rolling and heat treatments condition, the analysis of the results of the machining tests revealed a very similar behaviour among the tested materials. Proceeding a criterious analysis of the machining results tests, it was verified that the performance presented by the powder metallurgy material (MP) was slight superior, followed by conventional obtained material (MConv), which presented a insignificant advantage over the spray formed and hot rolled (72% reduction ratio) material. The worst result was encountered for the spray forming and hot rolled (50% reduction ratio) material that presented the highest wear values. (author)

    In the present work, we first verified a model of the European reactor cooled with lead (ELFR). The calculations were made with the code Monte Carlo serpent 2.27 and the library of cross sections Jeff-3.1. For this verification, three neutron parameters were compared: the evolution of the neutron multiplication factor, the Doppler constant and the effect of the vacuum fraction of the refrigerant, obtaining a good approximation with the reference values. Subsequently, the inclusion of thorium as a fertile material within the fuel was analyzed and the same neutron parameters were compared with the original fuel. The evolution of criticality for the case of thorium fuel differs significantly with respect to that of the original fuel (without thorium); this is due mainly to the breeding of the fissile isotope {sup 233}U. Therefore, is possible to have a longer fuel cycle, favoring the availability factor of the plant, without compromising the performance of the reactor since both the Doppler constant and the effect of the vacuum fraction of the refrigerant show a similar tendency to those of the original fuel, being negative in both cases.

    The possible deposition patterns, on the Vacuum Vessel, of lost fast ions during the balanced tangential NBI in TJ-II helical axis Stellarator are analysed theoretically, establishing the relation between those impact points, the plasma exit and birth positions and the magnetic configuration characteristics. It is shown that direct losses are the most important, mainly those produced by the beam injected with the same direction that the magnetic field, increasing with beam energy and plasma density but with impacts remaining fixed on well defined zones, a periodically distributed along the Hard Core cover plates, producing high loads at high densities. The remaining losses, except for the shine through ones that predominate at low density, are periodically distributed, with smooth maxima and produce very low loads. No overlapping between the different kind of losses or beams is observed. (Author) 6 refs.

    In this work AISI M3:2 high speed steels obtained through different techniques of manufacturing, submitted to the same heat treatment procedure were evaluated by measuring their mechanical properties of transverse rupture strength and hardness. Sinter 23 obtained by hot isostatic pressing (HIP), VWM3C obtained by the conventional route and a M3:2 high speed steel obtained by cold compaction of water atomized powders and vacuum sintered with and without the addition of a small quantity of carbon were evaluated after the same heat treatment procedure. The vacuum sintered M3:2 high speed steel can be an alternative to the more expensive high speed steel produced by hot isostatic pressing and with similar properties presented by the conventional one. The characterization of the vacuum sintered M3:2 high speed steel was performed by measuring the densities of the green compacts and after the sintering cycle. The sintering produced an acceptable microstructure and densities near to the theoretical. The transverse rupture strength was evaluated by means of three point bending tests and the hardness by means of Rockwell C and Vickers tests. The technique of scanning electronic microscopy (SEM) was used to evaluate the microstructure and to establish a relation with the property of transverse rupture strength. The structure was determined by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns and the retained austenite was detected to all the conditions of heat treatment. The main contribution of this work is to establish a relation between the microstructure and the mechanical property of transverse rupture strength and to evaluate the AISI M3:2 vacuum sintered high speed steel as an alternative to the similar commercial high speed steels.

    The main purpose of this work is to obtain the fluence of fast neutrons recorded within four specimens of carbon steel, similar to the material having the vessels of the BWR reactors of the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde when subjected to neutron flux in a experimental facility of the TRIGA Mark III reactor, calculating an irradiation time to age the material so accelerated. For the calculation of the neutron flux in the specimens was used the Monte Carlo code MCNP5. In an initial stage, three sheets of natural molybdenum and molybdenum trioxide (MoO{sub 3}) were incorporated into a model developed of the TRIGA reactor operating at 1 M Wth, to calculate the resulting activity by setting a certain time of irradiation. The results obtained were compared with experimentally measured activities in these same materials to validate the calculated neutron flux in the model used. Subsequently, the fast neutron flux received by the steel specimens to incorporate them in the experimental facility E-16 of the reactor core model operating at nominal maximum power in steady-state was calculated, already from these calculations the irradiation time required was obtained for values of the neutron flux in the range of 10{sup 18} n/cm{sup 2}, which is estimated for the case of Laguna Verde after 32 years of effective operation at maximum power.

    This work shows an application of the program COMSOL Multi physics Ver. 4.2a in the solution of the neutron diffusion equations for several energy groups in nuclear reactors whose core is formed by assemblies of hexagonal transversal cut as is the cas of fast reactors. A reference problem of 4 energy groups is described of which takes the cross sections which are processed by means of a program that prepares the definition of the constants utilized in COMSOL for the generic partial differential equations that this uses. The considered solution domain is the sixth part of the core which is applied frontier conditions of reflection and incoming flux zero. The discretization mesh is elaborated in automatic way by COMSOL and the solution method is one of finite elements of Lagrange grade two. The reference problem is known as the Knk with and without control rod which led to propose the calculation of the effective multiplication factor in function of the control rod fraction from a value 0 (completely inserted control rod) until the value 1 (completely extracted control rod). Besides this the reactivity was determined as well as the change of this in function of control rod fraction. The neutrons scalar flux for each energy group with and without control rod is proportioned. The reported results show a behavior similar to the one reported in other works but using the discreet ordinates S{sub 2} approximation. (Author)

    Bouveret's syndrome is an uncommon disorder that consists of localized obstruction of the pyloroduodenal region caused by the passage of a gallstone through a cholecystoenteric fistula. It is most common in elderly women with a previous history of cholelithiasis. As the clinical signs are nonspecific, radiological studies are of great importance in the attempt to reach an early diagnosis, thus improving the prognosis. We present two patients with a history of cholelithiasis in whom Bouveret's syndrome was diagnosed preoperatively by different imaging techniques. (Author) 8 refs.

    In this work a study of simulation of the gamma graphic studies that are carried out in human esophagus in the Dept. of Nuclear Medicine of the 'Celestino Hernandez Robau Hospital of Santa Clara is presented. For the investigation tubular reactors were used and sting-response techniques with radioactive tracer of Technetium 99 metastable to a concentration of 1 mCi and several flows were applied. The distribution curves of residences times were obtained, those that respond to an equation of the type: Y = A + B exp (- exp((x-C)/D)) - ((x-C/D)+1). They were also carried out, optimizations studies of the doses of the radioactive to give to the patients from 1 mCi (that is the one used in studies) up to 0,5 mCi, and the influences on the obtained distributions of residence time were analyzed. It was confirmed the possibility to lower the doses with clear information of the signal. It was also carried out a simulation of the attenuation of the radiations that takes place in the patients by the interposition of tissues among the analyzed organ, and the detection equipment. It was used paraffin for tissue simulation. It was found the almost independence of the intensity of the radiations with the thickness, for the assayed doses. Lastly it was found a complex mathematical model that responds to the diagnostic curves obtained in these studies, being correlated the coefficients of the pattern with the most important physical parameters of the system, giving it a practical and useful value, all time that the error among the values that this it predicts and the experimental ones do not surpass of 5%.

    The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) contributes to sustainability and to sustainable development in those countries where CDM projects are developed and helps the countries from Annex I to achieve their reduction targets to Greenhouse Gases. This paper presents a proposal of a social and environmental sustainability diagnosis making use of a tool called Social and Environmental Evaluation Matrix - MADSA{sup R}. Its purpose is to establish and measure appropriate sustainable indicators to evaluate projects to ensure development benefits of CDM projects in host countries in consistency with Annex I countries developmental goals. MADSA{sup R} methodology allows a definition of a social and environmental baseline to MDL projects, and provides information to any interested group of people, from stockholders to local community; showing its results. It allows a greater clients', stockholders' and investor's trust as it measures the development so it makes possible the diagnosis and the comparison between all phases of the project. It also contributes to a continuous improvement through the participation of benefit groups in the diagnosis. Besides being an evaluation method and a management tool, this proposal looks for being a reference as an indicator pattern that evaluates the sustainable social and environmental development of CDM projects.

  11. Molecular markers derived from bombesin for tumor diagnosis by SPECT and PET; Marcadores moleculares derivados da bombesina para diagnostico de tumores por SPECT e PET

    A high number of molecules have already been identified to have high affinity to some receptors overexpressed on tumour cells and the radiolabelling of those molecules offers the possibility of new compounds for tumour diagnosis and therapy by nuclear medicine. Among of those molecules, bombesin (BBN) has become focus of interest, as its BB{sub 2} receptors are known to be overexpressed in prostate, breast, colon, pancreatic and lung tumour, as long as glioblastomas and neuroblastomas. BBN agonists and antagonists have already been described for this purpose and promising results were obtained in preclinical studies. However, most of them exhibited high abdominal accumulation, especially in pancreas and intestines, which can compromise diagnosis accuracy and cause serious adverse effects in therapy. In this context, the goal of the present work to radiolabel new BBN derivatives with {sup 11}1In and {sup 68}Ga and to evaluate their potential for BB{sub 2} positive tumors diagnosis by single photon emission tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET). The structure of studied peptides was Q-YG{sub n}-BBN(6-14), where Q is the chelator, n is the number of glycine aminoacids in the spacer YG{sub n} and BBN(6-14) is the original bombesin sequence from the aminoacid 6 to 14. The derivative in which the last aminoacid (methionine, Met) was replaced by norleucine (Nle) was also evaluated. The experimental evaluation of the bombesin derivatives was divided into four steps: computational studies, molecular markers for SPECT, molecular markers for PET and toxicological studies. The theoretical partition (log P) and distribution (log D) coefficients were calculated for all bombesin derivatives conjugated to DTPA (diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid) and DOTA (1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid) chelators applying computational programmes. Bombesin derivatives for SPECT were developed by radiolabelling DTPA-conjugated bombesin derivatives with {sup 111}In to determine the best spacer for in vivo applications, regarding the stability and in vivo properties. The derivative with the most favorable properties and conjugated to DTPA or DOTA was evaluated in comparative in vitro and in vivo studies in different BB{sub 2} expressing tumour cells, in order to determine the best chelator to be used in vivo. Some comparative studies were also performed with the BBN analogue BZH3, which was described by the literature. The molecular marker for PET was developed by radiolabelling the derivative chosen with {sup 68}Ga and evaluating the biodistribution profile in healthy and tumour mice. Finally, toxicological studies were performed by injecting an excess of cold bombesin derivatives in rats to determine their safety for clinical queries. All derivatives conjugated to DTPA were radiolabelled with {sup 111}In at high radiochemical purity and high specific activity (174 GBq/{mu}mol). The molecular markers presented high stability during radiolabelling and low stability at room temperature and this stability was increased after the addition of stabilizer agents. Stability in human serum analysis suggested time-course degradation by human serum enzymes and the increase on glycine aminoacids in the spacer improved the molecular markers stability, as long as the replacement of terminal Met by Nle. HPLC and log P results confirmed the theoretical log P data which showed that the BBN derivatives present low lipophilicity, which decreases with the increase on glycine aminoacids in the spacer and the replacement of terminal Met by Nle. In vivo studies demonstrated that {sup 111}In-DTPA-BBN analogues present fast blood clearance, excretion by renal pathway and low abdominal accumulation. Highest tumour uptake was observed with the Nle-terminal derivative (YG{sub 5}N), which was used for the comparison between the DTPA and DOTA chelators. DOTA-YG{sub 5}N was also radiolabeled with {sup 111}In at high specific activity (100 GBq/{mu}mol), but this was lower than for the DTPA derivatives. Saturation binding assays on prostate (PC-3 e LNCaP) and breast (T-47D) tumour cells showed similar affinity for the radiopeptide conjugated to DTPA and DOTA, higher binding of DOTA-peptide to PC-3 and LNCap cells was observed, but not for T-47D cells. This molecular marker was also more internalized by PC-3 cells. In vivo studies showed higher stability for {sup 111}In-DOTA-YG{sub 5}N in mice serum, and the uptake of DTPA and DOTA peptide was similar by PC-3 and LNCaP tumour, although this last tumour has shown 2-fold less BB2 receptors than PC-3. SPECT/CT imaging of PC-3 and LNCaP was possible with both radiopeptides. When compared to {sup 111}In-BZH3, the molecular markers present similar tumour uptake, but with more favorable images, because of their lower abdominal uptake. DOTA-YG{sub 5}N was radiolabeled with {sup 68}Ga with high radiochemical purity and the biodistribution profile was similar to the peptide labeled with {sup 111}In, with significative PC-3 tumour uptake. Toxicological studies showed the bombesin derivatives are safe up to concentration administered and did not present hematological, hepatic or renal toxicity. The BBN derivative YG{sub 5}N conjugated to DTPA or DOTA is a promising and safe tool for BB{sub 2} expressing tumour diagnosis by SPECT and PET. (author)

Los resultados muestran que el comportamiento utilizando las diferentes mezclas de combustible es similar al reportado con gasolina pura, y los componentes de frecuencia que diferencian la condición normal y con falla también están presentes en las mezclas de combustible. Se extrajeron características estadísticas de las señales en el dominio de la frecuencia para simplificar el proceso de identificación. Palabras clave: motor de combustión interna, vibraciones, detección de fallas, problema de encendido, mezclas gasolina-etanol.______________________________________________________________________________AbstractThis paper presents the vibration analysis of an internal combustion engine, using different fuel blends, to identify fault operating conditions. A purpose built engine test bench was used and the fault studied was misfire. Three fuel blends were used: E8, E20 and E30. Fast Fourier transform was applied to the signals. A comparison between normal and faulty operating conditions was carried with every fuel used, looking for characteristic frequency components, to assess the validity of past studies on misfire performed on pure gasoline. The results show that the behavior using the different fuel blends is similar to the one reported on pure gasoline, and that the frequency components that differentiate normal and faulty conditions are also present on the fuel blends. Statistical characteristics were extracted from the signals in the frequency domain to simplify the identification process. Key words: internal combustion engine, vibration, fault detection, misfire, ethanol-gasoline blends.

    The use of computed tomography (CT) revolutionized image diagnostic in veterinary medicine and currently can be considered one of the most useful tools for the imaging evaluation of intracranial tumor in dogs. Computed tomography of the brain in small animals allows visualization of intracranial tumor, compression of adjacent structures such as cerebral parenchyma, falx or lateral ventricles, and evaluate secondary hemorrhages and edema. The CT imaging provides essential information to indicate the surgical approach for a possible tumor resection or biopsy, including the correct location and boundaries structures involved, and also can be used to monitor the clinical treatment. However, only histopathological examination is able to confirm the final diagnosis. (author)

    To assess the efficacy and utility of computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of appendicitis, and to evaluate the reliability of CT findings in right iliac fossa in the confirmation or exclusion of this diagnosis. Over a one-year period, 152 patients presenting clinical signs of appendicitis underwent CT scans. The images were reviewed by two radiologists who considered whether the appendix was normal or enlarged and the existence of other signs of appendicitis for the purpose of determining whether or not the patient presented appendicitis. The definitive diagnoses were established by surgery or by clinical follow-up. The sensitivity of CT for the diagnosis of appendicitis was 81.8%, the specificity was 95.3%, the positive predictive value was 93.1%, the negative predictive value was 87.2% and the reliability was 89.9%. The signs of appendicitis observed were: appendicoliths (sensitivity 30.3% and specificity 98.8%), fluid collections (sensitivity 19.7%, specificity 96.5%), cecal enlargement (sensitivity 21.2%, specificity 97.7%), inflammation of pericecal fat (sensitivity 72.7%, specificity 90.7%), fascial thickening (sensitivity 48.5%, specificity 91.9%) and an appendix measuring more than 6 mm (sensitivity 78.8%, specificity 94.3%). Adenopathy and free peritoneal fluid were not significantly related to appendicitis. The presence of a normal appendix filled with air or contrast material had an elevated negative predictive value with respect to appendicitis. In 35 of the 94 cases with negative CT scans, the images suggested alternative diagnoses. CT is a highly reliable diagnostic method for appendicitis. The observation of an appendix filled with air or contrast material has an elevated negative predictive value. The presence of appendicoliths has an elevated positive predictive value.

    The compare the efficacy of ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) in cases of suspected appendicitis. To study to what extent age, sex and habits of the patients, as well as the clinical context, influence the diagnostic yield of these two technique. Over a one-year period, 152 patients underwent ultrasonography and CT because of the clinical suspicion of appendicitis. The studies were carried out independently, and the results of each in terms of the presence or absence of appendicitis were unknown to the specialists performing the other. The final diagnoses were established by surgical treatment or clinical follow-up. The sensitivity of CT for the diagnosis of appendicitis was 82%, the specificity was 95%, the positive predictive value was 93%, the negative predictive value was 87% and the reliability was 90%. Ultrasonography has a sensitivity of 83%, a specificity of 97%, a positive predictive value of 95%, a negative predictive value of 88% and a reliability of 91%. Ultrasound was more efficient in patients in which there was a high clinical suspicion and in children, while the results with CT were better in patients in which the clinical diagnosis was less clear. The incidence of false negatives and positives was higher with ultrasound, while CT was more frequently able to identify a normal appendix. Sex and habits had no influence on the respective efficacies, although the performance of ultrasound was simplified in thin patients and that of CT in obese individuals. Ultrasonography and CT are highly reliable in cases of suspected appendicitis, especially when this diagnosis is conformed. Ultrasound is recommended as the technique of choice in children and in patients in which the clinical suspicion is strong. The yield of CT is somewhat greater when the clinical signs and symptoms are less clear. However, the efficacy of both techniques ultimately depends on the expertise of the specialist who interprets them. (Author) 62 refs.

    A diagnostic expert system was developed, in the Process Control Division at the Centro Atomico Bariloche, for the Embalse nuclear power plant simulator. The diagnostic system task is to interpret and show the probable cause of an abnormal transitory behaviour in the simulated process. The system was developed using artificial intelligence techniques such as: knowledge representation using rules, heuristic programming, inference under uncertainty and fuzzy sets. The diagnostic technique used consists of finding the possible cause of failure using the fault hypothesis confirmation. The faults hypothesis are organized in hierarchical form into a tree structure. The Best First search strategy is used to direct the search to those hypothesis which are confirmed with a higher degree of certainty. The diagnostic is finished when a specific hypothesis is confirmed with a high certainty factor. The diagnostic result obtained by different process fault simulation is shown. An alternative diagnostic technique is presented where the knowlegde of process structure and behaviour are represented in the form of mathematical constraints. This diagnostic method detects a suspicious component through constraints satisfaction and localizes it through constraints suspension. The validity of the method is shown by an easy example.

    Dental caries's diagnosis is a major dentistry problem from the clinic point of view. The laser beam on the region of 655 nm induces the fluorescence of the compounds present in the hard tissue, quantifying differences between sound and carious enamel and dentine. Diagnodent (Kavo, Germany), showed to be effective regarding dental caries's diagnosis in the present research sampling. The Er:YAG laser (Kavo Key Laser 2, Germany) performed efficient cavity preparations in caries lesions of I and V class type, using up energies that ranged from 300 mJ to 350 mJ with 4 Hz repetition rate for the enamel; and from 250 mJ to 300 mJ with 4 Hz repetition rate for the dentine, and with 80 mJ with 6 Hz of repetition rate for laser conditioning. In the Er:YAG laser preparations no patient was anesthetized even when there were deeper cavities, and the maximum degree of pain ( which ranged from 0 to 10) was 4. In the control group with conventional high-speed drill two patients were anesthetized and the maximum degree of pain was 7. Restorations performed by conventional method of composite were equally satisfying both in caries groups of I and V class type and in the control group. The laser application in the operative dentistry office as a new method of diagnosis and dental preparations should be a good alternative to the use of the conventional dental drill. Nevertheless, dentistry practice has a lot to improve from technology progress, as well as new researches on laser dentistry are necessary in a long term. New types of lasers will come about and will increasingly improve the dental practice assistance and procedures quality. (author)

    Management Assets has been a theme treated with growing priority and importance by Processes Industry. Control loops are important assets to guarantee the security and operational stability of processes when they present a good performance. Usually there are a large number of control loops in processes units and their initial investment and maintenance costs are expensive. Human evaluation of control loops, in a non-systematic way, does not identify all the problems that can degrade regulatory control performance, and this the main reason to use systematic monitoring and evaluation techniques and software tools necessary to keep loops efficient. This work describes the continuous activity of monitoring and evaluation of the control systems of a petroleum refinery. Depending on some performance indexes, the loops are prioritized and some actions are taken (valve maintenance or tuning adjustment) to improve control loop performance and to avoid the reduction of product quality, raw material and utilities waste and even unit shutdown.

    The non-traumatic spinal epidural hematoma (NTSEH) is a rare entity that can be the cause of an acute spinal compression syndrome. the objective of this review is to identify the characteristics by MRI and NTSEH and to analyze the factors that influence in its prognosis. In the years 1994 and 1999, 12 patients with NTSEH have been diagnosed in our hospital, and a MRI was performed during the acute phase. the characteristics of the lesions have been analyzed by MRI, with special emphasis on the topographic data and resonance signal and the factors that can influence in the clinical prognosis of the patients. Initially, all of the patients presented pain in the cervical dorsal or interscapular site, followed by a sensitive-motor deficit picture. The MRI showed a lesion of expansive character and posterior epidural location in every case that would produce varying degrees of compression on the spinal cord. The NTSEH should be considered as one of the causes of acute spinal cord compression. The clinical association of intense cervical, dorsal or interscapular pain followed by a sensomotor deficit picture should lead to the suspicion of this entity, that would require an immediate examination with MRI to verify its diagnosis. Both the clinical manifestations as well as the characteristics observed by MRI of the NTSEH have a prognostic value and determine the therapeutic decision. (Author) 34 refs.

    Mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS) consists of hippocampal atrophy and gliosis and is the most common cause of temporal lobe epilepsy. The objective of the authors was to establish a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol for its diagnosis. A prospective study was carried out in 72 patients with drug resistant complex partial seizures (42 women and 30 men ranging in age from 6 to 66 year: mean: 30 years). Using a 1.5-Tesla magnet, paracoronal sections were made in hippocampi for T1-weighted inversion-recovery images and volume measurements, fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) and T2 relaxometry. A control group of 30 health volunteers was included in the study. MTS was considered to be indicated by the presence of atrophy and hyperintensity in hippocampi on T2-weighted images. There were no differences among the hippocampi of the healthy individuals. The confidence intervals (mean{+-} 1.96 SD) were 4169 mm''3-5911 mm''3 for volume of right side, 4097 mm''3-5940 mm''3 for volume of left side and 98-113 ms for T2 relaxation time. MTS was detected in 40 patients (55.5%): 23 cases involving the left side, 13 involving the right and 4 cases of bilateral asymmetric involvement. The 95% confidence intervals for the diagnostic validity of the results (sensitivity/specificity) were (88.8%-97.2%)/(87.6%-96.4%) for T1 volumetry, (88.8%-97.2%)(95.7%-100.3%) for FLAIR and (85.4%-96.6%)/(85.4%-96.6%) for T2 relaxometry. In 5 cases of MTS, astrophy of other extra hippocampal structures was also observed, and MTS was associated with an extra hippocampal lesion (dual pathology), especially neurona migration disorders, in 8 patients. Seventeen patients (23.5%) presented lesions without MTS (tumors, cortical dysplasias and heterotopias) and there was no MRI evidence of anomalies in 15 (21%). Twenty-five patients underwent surgical treatment: 20 with MTS (19 diagnosed according to MRI and one in whom there had been no abnormal findings), 4 with tumors and 1 with a ballooned cell cortical dysplasia.

    A Centro de Produccion de Radio Farmacos de Aplicaciones en Sistemas PET will be implemented in Costa Rica. Universidad de Costa Rica will have technology that allows you to help with early detection of tumors in a much more rapid and painless. The development of PET technology in the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social and private health sector, has been delayed by the lack of definition in the supply of radiopharmaceuticals; due to the high cost of a cyclotron system and ensuring its profitability, being here where the Universidad de Costa Rica come to play a key role as an impartial figure in the scheme of national implementation. Therefore, a bilateral agreement is exposed for the daily supply of radiopharmaceuticals in place at a cost inversely proportional to the volume of consumption and enabling financial sustainability of the project. This agreement must be established between the Universidad de Costa Rica and the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social, and then seek expansion of marketing with the private sector nationwide. A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) is developed on the project. Also, the geographical location of the project facilities is showed, the architecture of the project cost without operations. Finally, the architectural design of the building is presented [es

    The identification and surgical removal of foreign bodies is a complex procedure in medical practice, principally when the involved material is radiolucent. The technological advent of the ultrasonography equipment comes enlarging the field of application of this method more and more, in medical practice. The authors describe a case of an ultrasound guided surgical removal of glass fragments from the face of a patient. The foreign bodies were previously diagnosed by ultrasound and computed tomography. The guided technic showed secure, less invasive and efficient, allowing the retreat of all the fragments. (author)

    Objective: to evaluate the diagnostic capacity of abdominal computed tomography in the assessment of hepatic steatosis using the portal phase with a simplified calculation method as compared with the non-contrast-enhanced phase. Materials and methods: in the present study, 150 patients were retrospectively evaluated by means of non-contrast-enhanced and contrast-enhanced computed tomography. One hundred patients had hepatic steatosis and 50 were control subjects. For the diagnosis of hepatic steatosis in the portal phase, the authors considered a result of < 104 HU calculated by the formula [L - 0.3 Multiplication-Sign (0.75 Multiplication-Sign P + 0.25 Multiplication-Sign A)] / 0.7, where L, P and A represent the attenuation of the liver, of the main portal vein and abdominal aorta, respectively. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were calculated, using non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography as the reference standard. Results: the simplified calculation method with portal phase for the diagnosis of hepatic steatosis showed 100% sensitivity, 36% specificity, negative predictive value of 100% and positive predictive value of 75.8%. The rate of false positive results was 64%. False negative results were not observed. Conclusion: The portal phase presents an excellent sensitivity in the diagnosis of hepatic steatosis, as compared with the non-contrast-enhanced phase of abdominal computed tomography. However, the method has low specificity. (author)

    Combined CT Venography and Pulmonary Angiography was described in 1998 as a tool for diagnostic Thromboembolic Disease. The purpose is to relate our own experience with this technique in a population with suspected pulmonary embolism. 46 consecutive patients with suspected pulmonary embolism underwent combined CT Venography after Pulmonary CT Angiography to depict Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT). CT Venography where obtained with a 3 minutes delay from injection, without additional intravenous contrast, from upper abdomen to fibular head. A prospective study from emergency reports where used. The reports where aimed by nine different radiologist at diary emergency room (images where not retrospective review). We report if a pulmonary embolus or deep venous thrombus or another alternative diagnostic where done. An endo luminal thrombus in any pulmonary arteries was assessed as a positive study for PE. A Thrombus in the leg veins or in an abdominal vein without diminished size of vein was assessed as an acute DVT. In those patients with a CT negative to Thromboembolic Disease was the clinician who decide if more proves where needed. Those patients without evidence in CT of Thromboembolic Disease where asked for symptoms related to the episode in a 3 months period after initial CT. Patients free of symptoms for 3 months without anticoagulation therapy where considered true negative for CT. CT shows Thromboembolic Disease in 23 of 46 patients. 21PE, 14 DVT 2 of 14 patients with DVT don't show PE, CT excluded thromboembolic disease in 23 patients and in 15 of those patients an alternative diagnostic was shown.

    Objective: the initiative AAA - Awareness , Appropriateness and Audit , promotes consciousness ( Awareness) , fitness ( Appropriateness ) and Audit ( Audit) . This paper analyzes the application of the concept in the AAA requests and justifications examinations using ionizing radiation within a large public hospital. Materials and methods: we collected and analyzed data between the years 2011 and 2012, concerning the number of exams performed with the use of radiation and their justifications. After, we sought to raise awareness of the clinical team through training on the risks and benefits of the various modalities of the radiology department and the need to justify the use of ionizing radiation on health. After the data were collected again of test requests for verification of the effectiveness of training. Results: the mean requests that need to be appropriate to the AAA in the last quarter of 2011 was 75 % lower than the average demands of the first quarter, matched against the last two months of 2012 increased by up to four times the number requests that require improvements in relation to the excellent results obtained in July 2012. Conclusion: it is shown in this paper the need of implementing this initiative AAA continuously added to the clinical staff awareness about the risk of the use of ionizing radiation, the appropriateness of the requests of these tests , as well as the control of this process in order to optimize use of ionizing radiation on health.

    A survey was conducted in the urban area of Lages using patients who had been submitted to a computed tomography of the skull in the period of March-December, 1996, for different reasons. Forty-two patients with a provisional diagnosis of neurocysticercosis, and 57 negatives were personally interviewed by one of the authors (Pfuetzenreiter), using a semi-structured procedure. More individuals with a provisional diagnostic of neurocysticercosis reported clinical manifestations related to this infection than those found negative. this difference is more marked among women, except in relation to convulsions, more frequently reported by men (19.05%) than by women (7.14%). The greater percentage of inactive forms (83.33%0 and a longer history of perceived symptoms among those positives suggest that the condition is not new. (author)

    In slaughterhouses, operations developed since the 'ante-mortem' until to the storage of the product, are heavily dependent on electric energy and responsible for the final product quality. The study of the size related to the consumption of electrical energy and the associated cost of this energy in the stages of the slaughter, are important not only for the entrepreneur but also for the final consumer. This way, aiming at to accomplish a preliminary diagnosis in relation to the use of the electric power, was measured values of the main electric parameters of the transformers slaughterhouse to know preliminary the use of this energy inside of the establishment. Later, in the continuation of this work, detailed and complemented studies will be accomplished in the several processes aiming at to diagnose, to analyze and to propose solutions to lead to the rational use of the electric power, without interfering, or to maintain, the quality of the final product in the lines of production of the poultry slaughterhouse, including the storage process that uses of chambers of cooling and freezing.

    The fault detection and diagnosis system is an Operator Support System dedicated to specific functions that alerts operators to sensors and actuators fault problems, and guide them in the diagnosis before the normal alarm limits are reached. Operator Support Systems appears to reduce panels complexity caused by the increase of the available information in nuclear power plants control room. In this work a Monitoring and Diagnosis System was developed based on the GMDH (Group Method of Data Handling) methodology. The methodology was applied to the IPEN research reactor IEA-R1. The system performs the monitoring, comparing GMDH model calculated values with measured values. The methodology developed was firstly applied in theoretical models: a heat exchanger model and an IPEN reactor theoretical model. The results obtained with theoretical models gave a base to methodology application to the actual reactor operation data. Three GMDH models were developed for actual operation data monitoring: the first one using just the thermal process variables, the second one was developed considering also some nuclear variables, and the third GMDH model considered all the reactor variables. The three models presented excellent results, showing the methodology utilization viability in monitoring the operation data. The comparison between the three developed models results also shows the methodology capacity to choose by itself the best set of input variables for the model optimization. For the system diagnosis implementation, faults were simulated in the actual temperature variable values by adding a step change. The fault values correspond to a typical temperature descalibration and the result of monitoring faulty data was then used to build a simple diagnosis system based on fuzzy logic. (author)

    In Patagonia there are academic centers, health and industrial facilities that use ionizing radiations in its usual practices. However, they do not have protocols that respond to local needs. For this reason was held from October 5 to November 10, 2012 in Bariloche Atomic Center, a training course for health personnel. The range of topics covered ranged from the definition of dosimetry quantities, types of radiation and biological dosimetry, biological effects, radiation acute syndrome, radiation-induced cutaneous syndrome, internal contamination, screening in radiological emergencies, etc.The course provided a theoretical and practical guide about how to recognize and treat people exposed to radiations, guidelines for acting in radiological emergencies and a perception of the psychosocial impact of the radiation accidents.The result was a pocket book for health personnel that will be used in case of having a patient with radiation induced injury.

    Datos Estadísticos
    Debemos referirnos casi exclusivamente a los datos aportados por los textos y revistas norteamericanos y europeos puesto que nuestro país carece en forma prácticamente total de estadísticas confiables en este campo.

    En 1900 habían sido publicados menos de 80 casos en la literatura médica mundial. En 1912, el Dr. Isaac Adler en su Tratado Clásico sobre “Tumores Primarios de Pulmón y Bronquios” informó 400 casos. La incidencia aumentó progresivamente. El uso del cigarrillo y la polución ambiental han contribuido a este aumento inicialmente en el hombre y en las últimas décadas en la mujer, hasta el punto que en 1930 hubiesen muerto 2.357 personas por esta causa en Estados Unidos; en 1943, 9.205 Y en 1950, 18.313. Durante los siguientes 25 años la mortalidad por esta causa se disparó pasando de 24 a 67.5 por 100.000 en los hombres (un 185% de aumento y de 5 a 16.6 por 100.000 en mujeres (un 239% de aumento.

    Es de anotar que ningún otro tipo de cáncer aumentó más de 3 por 100.000 en el mismo lapso. Prácticamente se podría hablar de una epidemia de cáncer pulmonar. Durante este período de 25 años, la proporción de los que fueron detectados y curados fue del 20 al 25% con una sobrevida a 5 años del 8 al 10%.

    En 1981 se detectaron 122.000 nuevos casos en EE.UU. y 105 mil muertes por carcinoma broncogénico. En el curso de la presente década la mujer alcanzará al hombre en este campo. El cáncer del pulmón causael25% de todas las muertes por cáncer y el 5%de todas las muertes. La mortalidad por cáncer del pulmón alcanzó ya en 1985 a la producida por accidentes de tránsito. Todos estos datos corresponden a estadísticas estadounidenses.

    Las técnicas y enfoques modernos de tratamiento han permitido descubrir la lesión en etapas más tempranas, y por tanto tratarla en un período mejor para lograr mayor sobrevida. A esos métodos nos vamos a referir.

    Como mencionamos, las estadísticas colombianas a nuestro alcance no son muy completas, pero indican así mismo una tendencia ascendente realmente impresionante tanto en hombres como en mujeres.

    En la actualidad la cirugía de resección es el tratamiento de elección en la mayoría de los casos. Para llegar a una cirugía que tenga posibilidades de curación o de sobrevida útil importante, es necesario cubrir una serie de parámetros tanto en la clasificación como en la selección y agrupación de los casos que han de ser sometidos a técnicas quirúrgicas; así mismo éstas no deberán ser como en anteriores épocas, cirugías prácticamente de demostración de habilidad por parte del cirujano, de gravísimo riesgo para el paciente, sino técnicas que, muy bien indicadas y ejecutadas, puedan (en aquellos casos que por su clasificación así lo ameriten llevar al éxito quirúrgico y a sobrevida útil a 5 años en alto porcentaje de los casos...

    Ionizing radiation metrology is the base to achieve reliable dose measurements in ali areas; it is also part of the framework that is established to assure radiation protection procedures in order to avoid or minimize the harmful biological effect that may be caused by ionizing radiation. A well done metrology means the use of reliable instruments that comply with standard performance requirements worldwide accepted. Those instruments are expected to be calibrated by Metrology Laboratories under well defined conditions. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in Standard 61267 established the reference radiations for medical diagnostic x-ray equipment that are recommended to be used for calibrating dosimetric systems for diagnostic dosimetry. In this work, X-ray beam qualities were established in a Calibration Laboratory and their characteristics were analyzed through the measurement of beam parameters like inherent tube filtration, beam uniformity and field size, energy spectra and peak voltage for additional filtration with 94.425 por cent and 99.999 por cent purity filters. Also, the first half-value layer and the homogeneity coefficient were measured for the three RQR 2, RQR 6 and RQR 10 IEC beam qualities and they were analyzed according to the IEC standard. Air-kerma measurements were carried out with an ionization chamber that had its reliability confirmed through repetition and reproducibility reading tests. In 50 sets of measurements the maximum standard deviation found of 10 successive readings was 0.19 %; the maximum shift of the reading mean value at a fixed geometry condition was 0.80 % with an overall standard deviation of 0.23 %. Results showed that the use of different purity filters did not cause a relevant influence on the beam energy spectra. An ionization chamber was also calibrated against a standard dosimeter in ali implemented reference radiations and the relevant sources of uncertainties were estimated. Calibration could be done with an expanded uncertainty of 1.50% for a coverage factor of 2 at a 95.45 % confidence level, mainly due to the uncertainty of 0.58% caused by the positioning set-up of the ionization chamber.

    To assess the value of ultrasound as an initial diagnostic method in cases of acute diverticulitis. Ultrasound was carried out in 76 patients with a clinical diagnosis of acute sigmoid diverticulitis. The final diagnosis was based on the clinical course in every case, as well as on computed tomography (CT; n=46), histopathological examination (n=10), colonoscopy (n=4) and barium enema (n=2). The diagnostic criteria established for ultrasound was a thickening of the sigmoid colon wall of >4 mm and the presence of a least one of the following features: diverticular, phlegmon or abscess. The CT diagnosis was based on two indispensable findings: thickening of the sigmoid colon of>4 mm and inflammation of pericolonic fat. The final diagnosis was acute diverticulitis in 52 patients, some other disease in 18 and undetermined in 6. The sensitivities of ultrasound and CT were 81% and 94%, respectively, and their specificities were 79% and 83%, respectively. Of the 10 false negatives on ultrasound, seven corresponded to cases of simple diverticulitis and three to cases of complicated diverticulitis (two in patients with abscess and one in a patient with pneumoperitoneum). CT provided the correct diagnosis in eight of these cases, and resulted in false negatives in two cases of mild diverticulitis. Ultrasound is a valid test in the initial diagnosis of acute diverticulitis of the sigmoid colon. CT should be performed when ultrasound fails to provide a diagnosis or in cases of negative results when there is a strong clinical suspicion of diverticulitis, as well as when the possibility of complicated diverticulitis exists.

    Full Text Available Introducción: El proceso de medicalización de la sociedad ha generado una dependencia de la biomedicina para entender, gestionar y legitimar la enfermedad. Como consecuencia surge una nueva forma de considerar los procesos corporales que transforma las identidades y subjetividades de los individuos y los grupos sociales. La enfermedad se concibe y se experimenta en el cuerpo en forma de signos y síntomas. Esta representación de la enfermedad compartida por expertos y enfermos durante el encuentro clínico se convierte en el lenguaje propio de la interacción. Esto ocurre incluso en casos, como el de la fibromialgia, en los que el diagnóstico se produce en ausencia de alteraciones ‘objetivas’ del cuerpo. Metodología: Observación participante, sobre la elaboración y comunicación del diagnóstico de fibromialgia en una consulta de reumatología. Resultados: Se analizan las representaciones sobre el cuerpo y la enfermedad que manejan tanto médicos como enfermos, y la utilización de los síntomas corporales como estrategia de legitimación e interacción durante el encuentro clínico. Conclusión: En la fibromialgia, a pesar de la ausencia de alteraciones biológicas ‘objetivas’, la relación sanitario-paciente se ve mediada por el cuerpo. Este es el lugar en el que se producen las intervenciones terapéuticas y el vehículo de la comunicación entre ambos.Introduction: The process of medicalization of the society has generated a dependence of the biomedicine to understand, to negotiate and to legitimate the illness. As consequence arises, a new form of considering the bodily processes that transforms the identities and the individuals' subjectivities. Persons conceive and experience the illness in the body as signs and symptoms. This representation of the illness shared by experts and patients during the clinical encounter it becomes the characteristic language of the interaction. This even happens in cases, as that of the fibromyalgia, in those that the diagnosis takes place in absence of 'objective' alterations of the body. Methods: Fieldwork carried out over a six-month period in two different outpatient rheumatology clinics. I used participant-observation to explore doctor-patient interaction and the diagnostic process of fibromyalgia. Results: I analyzed the representations about the body and the illness used by medical as patients, and the use of the corporal symptoms as legitimation strategy and interaction during the clinical encounter. Conclusion: In fibromyalgia, in spite of the absence of biological ‘objective’ alterations, the body mediates the doctor-patient relationship. This is the place of the therapeutic interventions and the vehicle of the communication between both.

    Dental caries's diagnosis is a major dentistry problem from the clinic point of view. The laser beam on the region of 655 nm induces the fluorescence of the compounds present in the hard tissue, quantifying differences between sound and carious enamel and dentine. Diagnodent (Kavo, Germany), showed to be effective regarding dental caries's diagnosis in the present research sampling. The Er:YAG laser (Kavo Key Laser 2, Germany) performed efficient cavity preparations in caries lesions of I and V class type, using up energies that ranged from 300 mJ to 350 mJ with 4 Hz repetition rate for the enamel; and from 250 mJ to 300 mJ with 4 Hz repetition rate for the dentine, and with 80 mJ with 6 Hz of repetition rate for laser conditioning. In the Er:YAG laser preparations no patient was anesthetized even when there were deeper cavities, and the maximum degree of pain ( which ranged from 0 to 10) was 4. In the control group with conventional high-speed drill two patients were anesthetized and the maximum degree of pain was 7. Restorations performed by conventional method of composite were equally satisfying both in caries groups of I and V class type and in the control group. The laser application in the operative dentistry office as a new method of diagnosis and dental preparations should be a good alternative to the use of the conventional dental drill. Nevertheless, dentistry practice has a lot to improve from technology progress, as well as new researches on laser dentistry are necessary in a long term. New types of lasers will come about and will increasingly improve the dental practice assistance and procedures quality. (author)

    Purpose: to establish the main signs of placental accretism in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with clinical suspicion and to estimate the benefit of this method. Methods: prospective transversal study with 15 patients suspected of placental accretism, referred between March 2003 and February 2006. Gestational age varied from 20 to 31 weeks. All patients underwent MRI to study the placenta and had previously done an ultrasonography. Material was sent to histological study. MRI was done on Magnetom Impact and Sonata Maestro Class Siemens{sup R}, with acquired sequences HASTE, TURBO SPIN in axial, sagittal, coronal planes and echo gradient (GE{sup R}), pre- and post-dynamic contrast in the best plan for acquisition. Images were analyzed by a team of two radiologists. Results: mean gestational age was 24.3 weeks. We studied seven placenta previa (47%), six anterior placentas (40%) and two posterior placentas (13%). Ultrasonography was positive in 80% of the placentas and MRI in 53%. However, echography had a low concordance with anatomic pathological studies by Kappa test (11%), revealing 75% of sensitivity, 14% of specificity, 50% as positive predictive value (PPV) and 33% as negative predictive value (NPV). MRI had an excellent concordance with anatomic pathological studies (0.86), showing 100% of sensitivity, 86% of specificity, 89% as PPV and 100% as NPV. Conclusions: MRI is useful for placental accretism diagnosis. The principal findings are transmural hyper-signal, the loss of continuity in myometrial wall in fast sequences and the identification of vessels invading myometrial layer in dynamic sequences.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT:Introduction: Legionella species are Gram-negative bacilli. There are described for the first time in 70's associated to the Legionnarie's disease. Presently, more than 34 species of Legionella have been identified, 20 of which have been found pathogenic for the man. The clinical manifestations of Legionella infections are primarily respiratory. The most common presentation is acute pneumonia, which varies in severity from mild illness that does not require hospitalization to fatal pneumonia.Material and Methods: The results corresponding to the determination of antibodies to L. pneumophila (Gull Laboratories by indirect inmunofluorescence (IFI have been analysed and reviewed. This conventional inmunofluorescent test measures antibodies versus a pool of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 serogroups. During the 3 years of surveillance period 1249 determinations by IFI were performed in our Hospital. The determination of urinary antigen of Legionella for the qualitative detection of the antigen to L. pneumophila serogroup 1 was made in almost all studied samples by using a fast inmunochromatographical technique (Binax NOW.Results and Discussion: Of the 1249 cases of nosocomial pneumonia (diagnosed by a positive result of IFI Legionella test recorded during the period, 12 cases met the criteria for infection with L. pneumophila serogroup 1. Later, clinical histories were reviewed and it was observed that the ages of the confirmed cases oscillated between the 40 and 87 years, with an average of age of 40, of which 8 were men and 4 women. From the point of view of factors of risk, 6 patients were smokers. Clinically, the displayed symptoms were general malaise, fever high and pattern of pulmonary infiltration in all the cases, migraine in 3 cases, diarrhoea in 5 cases and arthralgias and muscle aches in 3 cases. The analytical parameters in common were high VSG and leukocytosis. Hyponatremia 1/1024, what it demonstrates a clear seroconversion. In other two cases the title of the first sample already was > 1/1024.Although in our casuistic the incidence of pneumonia by Legionella is low, we can observe the importance of the determination of the urinary Legionella antigen as well as the delayed appearance of antibodies. The clinical importance of this single observation carried us to practice a second determination of antibodies when the suspicion of pneumonia by Legionella is high. RESUMEN.Introducción: Las especies de Legionella son bacilos gram negativos. Fueron descritas por primera vez en los 70 asociados a la enfermedad de los legionarios (EL. Casi la mitad de las 34 especies conocidas son patógenas para el hombre. Las manifestaciones clínicas de infecciones por Legionella son fundamentalmente respiratorias. La forma más común es la neumonía aguda, que varía en severidad de enfermedad suave que no requiere hospitalización a neumonía fatal.Material y Métodos: Se han estudiado y revisado los resultados correspondientes a la medición de anticuerpos frente a L. pneumophila por inmunofluorescencia indirecta, IFI (Gull Laboratories, que determina anticuerpos frente a un pool de serogrupos 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 y 8. El número de resultados obtenidos por IFI, correspondientes al periodo 2000-2003, ha sido de 1249, procedentes de diferentes Servicios de nuestro Centro.La determinación de antígeno urinario de Legionella, se ha realizado, en casi todas muestras estudiadas, mediante una técnica inmunocromatográfica rápida para la detección cualitativa del antígeno serogrupo 1 de L. pneumophila (Binax NOW.Resultados y Discusión: De todas las determinaciones realizadas (1249, solo se han confirmado 12 casos de neumonía por Legionella. Posteriormente, se revisaron las historias clínicas y se observó que las edades de los casos confirmados oscilaban entre los 40 y 87 años, con un promedio de edad de 40, de los cuales 8 eran varones y 4 mujeres. Desde el punto de vista de factores de riesgo 6 eran fumadores.Clínicamente los síntomas presentados fueron: malestar general, fiebre alta y patrón de infiltración pulmonar en todos los casos, cefalea en 3 casos, diarrea en 5 casos y artralgias y mialgias en 3 casos. Como parámetros analíticos comunes a todos los casos se observaron VSG elevada y leucocitosis. La hiponatremia inferior a 130 sólo se observó en 1 caso.La determinación de antígeno de Legionella fue positiva en 9 casos. En los 3 casos en que resultó negativa ha de interpretarse que la enfermedad fue producida por un serogrupo diferente del 1 (que es el que se detecta en la muestras de orina.La determinación de anticuerpos frente a L. pneumophila por IFI se realizaron todas en el momento del ingreso. En 7 casos el título fue 1/1024, lo que nos demuestra una clara seroconversión. En otros dos casos el título de la primera muestra ya fue > 1/1024.Aunque en nuestra casuística la incidencia de neumonía por Legionella es baja, es posible observar la importancia de la determinación del antígeno urinario de Legionella así como la aparición tardía de anticuerpos. Estos hallazgos nos refuerzan el interés de practicar una segunda determinación de anticuerpos cuando la sospecha de neumonía por Legionella es alta.

    A comparison among the design techniques of shielding for X-ray diagnostic rooms with the NCRP 49 (1976) report technique, AAPM 39 (1993) Y the one of the NCRP 147 (2005) technique. The designs correspond to a room of conventional X-rays, one of fluoroscopy, one of tomography Y one of mammography. In all the cases it demonstrates that the NCRP 49 technique overestimate the shieldings. The causes of the overestimation of the NCRP 49 can be attributed to: a) high values of the work charge that don't consider the spectral fluence of the photons that are present in each room, b) to the differences in the values of the kerma in air without attenuation for the dispersed primary radiation Y of leakage among both reports.

    Small-vessel vasculitis is a convenient descriptor for a wide range of diseases characterized by vascular inflammation of the venules, capillaries, and/or arterioles with pleomorphic clinical manifestations. The classical clinical phenotype is leucocytoclastic vasculitis with palpable purpura, but manifestations vary widely depending upon the organs involved. Histopathologic examination in leucocytoclastic vasculitis reveals angiocentric segmental inflammation, fibrinoid necrosis, and a neutrophilic infiltrate around the blood vessel walls with erythrocyte extravasation. The etiology of small-vessel vasculitis is unknown in many cases, but in others, drugs, post viral syndromes, malignancy, primary vasculitis such as microscopic polyarteritis, and connective tissue disorders are associated, The diagnosis of small- vessel vasculitis relies on a thorough history and physical examination, as well as relevant antibody testing including antinuclear antibody and anti neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody, hepatitis B and C serologies, assessment of complement, immunoglobulins, blood count, serum creatinine liver function tests, urinalysis, radiographic imaging and biopsy. The treatment is based primarily on corticosteroid and immunosuppressive agents.

    The obtention of images of human body to the medical diagnostic is one of the more old and generalized applications for X-ray. Therefore the design and performance of equipment and installations as well as the operation procedures must be oriented toward safety with the purpose to guarantee this radiological practice will bring a net positive benefit to the society. Given that in Mexico only exists the standardization related to source and equipment generators of ionizing radiation in the industrial area and medical therapy, but not so to the medical diagnostic area it is the purpose of this work to present those standards related with this application branch. Also it is presented the preparation of a manual for the course named Formation of teachers in radiological protection and safety in the X-ray medical diagnostic in 1997 which was imparted at ININ.

    Thyroid nodules are a common disorder, with 4-7% of incidence in the Brazilian population. Although the fine needle aspiration (FNA) is an accurate method for thyroid tumors diagnosis, the discrimination between benign and malignant neoplasm is currently not possible in some cases with high incidence of false negative diagnosis, leading to a surgical intervention due to the risk of carcinomas. The aim of this study was to verify if the Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) can contribute to the diagnosis of thyroid carcinomas and goiters, using samples of tissue and aspirates. Samples of FNA, homogenates and tissues of thyroid nodules with histopathological diagnosis were obtained and prepared for FTIR spectroscopy analysis. The FNA and homogenates samples were measured by {mu}-FTIR (between 950 . 1750 cm{sup -1}), at a nominal resolution of 4 cm{sup -1} and 120 scans). Tissue samples were analyzed directly by ATR-FTIR technique, at a resolution 2 cm{sup -1}, with 60 scans in the same region. All spectra were corrected by the baseline and normalized by amides area (1550-1640 cm{sup -1}) in order to minimize variations of sample homogeneity. Then, spectra were converted into second derivatives using the Savitzk-Golay algorithm with a 13 points window. The Ward's minimum variance algorithm and Euclidean distances among the points were used for cluster analysis. Some FNA samples showed complex spectral pattern. All samples showed some cell pellets and large amount of hormone, represented by the bands of 1545 and 1655 cm{sup -1}. Bands in 1409, 1412, 1414, 1578 and 1579 cm{sup -1} were also found, indicating possible presence of sugar, DNA, citric acid or metabolic products. In this study, it was obtained an excellent separation between goiter and malign lesion for the samples of tissues, with 100% of specificity in specific cluster and 67% sensibility and 50 of specificity. In homogenate and FNA samples this sensibility and specificity were lower, because among these samples, it were included many types of thyroid lesions. To obtain a more precise diagnosis for FNA of follicular thyroid the sample size should be increased. The results of this study suggest that FTIR spectroscopy may be useful for discriminate thyroid carcinomas from goiters in tissue samples. (author)

    Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the oldest infectious diseases in the world and still affects humanity today. Since 1993, the World Health Organization (WHO) considers TB as a global emergency. The clinical history of the individual, the serum exams and particularly, the imaging examination of the thorax, are used for diagnostic confirmation and monitoring of disease. TB is a chronic disease that usually evolves with pulmonary sequelae that must be monitored. The exam of the image more precise to assess the radiological patterns found in these patients is high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), which aids in medical diagnosis and permit the determination of the area affected by radiological abnormalities of pulmonary tuberculosis. The best known of such modifications by means of exams or more accurate techniques is of extreme importance. Therefore, this study aimed to show the quantification, performed by algorithms, of the areas affected by the radiological abnormalities of TB through the HRCT, and compared with serum exams. We studied 16 patients with confirmed diagnosis of TB. The serum exams evaluated included: hemoglobin, hematocrit, albumin, speed hemo sedimentation and C-reactive protein. With the values of serum exams we observed that patients have anemia, low albumin levels and inflammatory activity, corroborating imaging exams, which show severe impairment of lung area due to the inflammation caused by disease activity.

    The gastroesophageal reflux disease is characterized by the return of gastric liquid to the esophagus which can origin the reflux esophagitis. The aim is to evaluate the contribution of dynamic quality scintigraphy of reflux (CTR) in the diagnosis of DRGE. We studied a ground of sick people with typical symptoms and compared the results given by digestive endoscopy (EDA), the histopathology and 24 hours pHmetry. There have been evaluated 24 healthy individuals and 97 who were sick. The first ones were submitted to CTR. In 20 controlled and 34 patients, the reflux index (IR) was determined by the evaluation of the reflux material percentage in relation to the basal activity. All the sick patients were submitted to CTR and EDA. This one classified them in: group A with esophagitis 45 patients (46,4%) where 14 did the biopsy of the third segment/part from the esophagus and 16 did the long pHmetry and group B without esophagitis = 52 patients (53.6%), 26 did the biopsy and 36 the pHmetry. In group A the CTR was positive in 38 (84%), the biopsy showed esophagitis in 11 (78,6%) and the pHmetry showed normal reflux in 14 (87,5%). The positivity of the same exams in group B were of 42 (81%), 11 (42,3%) and 19 (53%) respectively. The IR were determined to the controls and the measure to the patients were of 59% and 106% respectively as p<0,0001 (test from Mann Whitney). The correlation of CTR with the other methods showed sensitivity of 84,1%, specificity of 95,8%, positive predictive value of 98,3% and negative predictive value of 67,7%. As it was showed the authors concluded that the scintigraphy method can confirm the diagnosis of DRGE in patients of typical symptomology which canbe recommended by the initial of investigation method in these conditions.

    Full Text Available Un defecto ventilatorio restrictivo está caracterizado por una reducción en la capacidad pulmonar total. El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la utilidad de la espirometría para determinar la presencia de restricción en pacientes con y sin obstrucción bronquial. Fueron incluídos 520 pacientes. Se definieron los valores normales mediante el intervalo de confianza del 95% (IC utilizando la ecuación de Morris para la espirometría, y la de la European Respiratory Society (ERS para capacidad pulmonar. Las espirometrías fueron clasificadas como obstructivas cuando mostraban relación volumen espiratorio forzado en 1 segundo (VEF1/capacidad vital forzada (CVF A restrictive ventilatory defect is characterized by a decreased total lung capacity (TLC. The objective of this study was to determine the accuracy of spirometry to detect pulmonary restriction in patients with or without airflow obstruction in the spirometry. Five hundred and twenty patients were included. Normal values for lung function were determined by using the 95% confidence interval (CI with Morris reference equation for spirometry and European Respiratory Society equation for lung volume. Spirometries were considered obstructive when FEV1/FVC ratio was <70% and FEV1 was below 95%CI. In patients without obstruction in the spirometry (n = 357 sensitivity and specificity were 42.2% and 94.3% respectively, negative predictive value (NPP was 86.6% and positive PV (PPV was 65.2%. In patients with an obstructive spirometry (n = 66 sensitivity increased to 75.8% but specificity decreased to 65.9%. PPV was only 57.8% and NPV 81.5%. Patients showing obstruction in the spirometry and false positives of a low FVC (n = 22 had similar values of FVC (57.36 ± 13.45 vs. 58.82 ± 8.71%, p = 0.6451, FEV1 (44.73 ± 19.24 vs. 44.0 ± 13.08%, p = 0.8745 and DLCO (67.50 ±27.23 vs. 77.00 ±16.00%, p = 0.1299 than true positives. Residual volume (RV (125.72 ± 64. vs. 77.96 ± 29.98%, p = 0.0011 and RV/ TLC ratio (56.89 ± 12.82 vs. 38.43 ± 13.07%, p = <0.0001 were significantly higher. We conclude that a decreased FVC or VC cannot be considered evidence of ventilatory restriction in the presence of airflow obstruction on spirometry. Diagnosis of "mixed defects" by spirometry is inaccurate and should be avoided without the measurement of lung volumes.

    maggio 1991 a febbraio 1998 sono giunti alla nostra osservazione 130 casi di infezioni necrotizzanti progressive dei tessuti molli; in 32 casi l'eta' era compresa fra 22 e 84 anni; la diagnosi istologica retrospettiva e' risultata quella della fascite necrotizzante. Le sedi interessate dal processo sono state: arti (26/32), regioni cervicale (5/32) e perineale (1/32). Diciannove pazienti (19/32) sono stati sottoposti d'urgenza a esame radiografico eseguito anche per lo studio dei tessuti molli. L'esame ecografico e' stato eseguito d'urgenza in tutti i 32 pazienti. La valutazione dei pazienti con sospetto di infezioni necrosanti progressive e' affidata di solito a un gruppo di operatori esperti in diagnostica ecografica dei tessuti molli perischeletrici. L'esame TC e' stato eseguito in 9 casi (9/32); a ognuno di questi pazienti e' stato somministrato mdc iodato per via endovenosa. Con gli esami ecografico ed eco color Doppler, nel sospetto di fascite necrotizzante, e' possibile offrire indicazioni utili e affidabili per il corretto e rapido orientamento diagnostico; in particolare tale metodica e' in grado di rilevare precocemente alterazioni al tessuto adiposo sottocutaneo (28/32), alla fascia (18/32) e al tessuto molecolare (15/32). E' stata riscontrata buona correlazione tra alterazione tissutale rilevata con l'esame ecografico e reperto istologico; l'ecografia non ha evidenziato alterazioni al tessuto adiposo sottocutaneo (3/32) e al tessuto molecolare (8/32) in 11 casi pur evidenti all'esame istologico. La TC con mdc puo' essere utile per la migliore definizione dell'estensione della malattia e per la dimostrazione di eventuali complicanze, soprattutto in sedi difficili da raggiungere con l'ecografia. Le probabilita' di guarigione per i pazienti affetti da fascite necrotizzante sono direttamente proporzionali alla precocita' della diagnosi e all

The approach adopted aimed at including fishermen in the research process, valuing traditional knowledge and also ensuring the acquisition of biological data of difficult access on the spawning of reef fish caught in reproductive aggregation sites distant from the coast. The action was developed through the integration of collaborating fishermen within the research. Two masters of the artisanal handline fishing, recognized as experts in the communities of Valença and Camamu, have benefited from research grants by the state foundation for research supporting – FAPESB. The collaborating masters and crews of vessels were qualified and involved in the monitoring process, collecting information on-board about catches, fishing effort, exploited areas (fishing spots, biometrics and stages of sexual maturation. Monthly orientation and monitoring supervision of collaborating fishermen were conducted by researchers and technicians from the State University of Feira de Santana (UEFS and the agricultural development agency of Bahia state (EBDA. A total of 56 handline fishing operations from 24 fishing spots were monitored; 26 taxa were recorded during these fisheries, 3,271 fishes were measured and weighed, and 149 gonads were collected. The evaluation of the approach was based on qualitative parameters: 1 engagement and collaboration in the activity, 2 efficiency and consistency in data collection, filling out the forms and classification of gonads. The main challenge of the proposed approach is the perception of the fishermen about the relevance of participatory monitoring to promote the construction of knowledge about the fishery and the reproductive dynamics of fisheries resources. A continuous action is considered essential to the strengthening of trust relationships established between fishermen, technicians and researchers, as well as to develop actions that promote the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

    Full Text Available The housing question appears as essential element to understanding the production, consumption and appropriation processes of urban space, illuminating the relationship between sociospatial segregation and real state speculation that govern the brazilians' cities structuring. This paper proposes to discuss the relations between the Participatory Master Plan of Fortaleza (PDPFor and the Municipal Housing Policy (PHIS, aiming to contribute to the reflection of the importance of the urban and housing policies integration. The text is divided into three parts: the first discusses the context of the emergence of the master plans "new generation" in Brazil; the second reconstructs the preparation process of the PDPFor and PHIS; and the third proposes a questioning about the dialogue between the urban and housing political, based on the analysis of the content of PHIS and housing policy chapter in PDPFor.

    The development of the AZTLAN platform for the analysis and design of nuclear reactors is led by Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) and divided into four working groups, which have well-defined activities to achieve significant progress in this project individually and jointly. Within these working groups is the users group, whose main task is to use the codes that make up the AZTLAN platform to provide feedback to the developers, and in this way to make the final versions of the codes are efficient and at the same time reliable and easy to understand. In this paper we present the results provided by the AZNHEX v.1.0 code when simulating the core of a fast reactor cooled with sodium at steady state. The validation of these results is a fundamental part of the platform development and responsibility of the users group, so in this research the results obtained with AZNHEX are compared and analyzed with those provided by the Monte Carlo code MCNP-5, software worldwide used and recognized. A description of the methodology used with MCNP-5 is also presented for the calculation of the interest variables and the difference that is obtained with respect to the calculated with AZNHEX.

    In the National Institute of Nuclear Research (ININ) a methodology is developed to optimize the design of cells 10x10 of assemble fuels for reactors of water in boil or BWR. It was proposed a lineal calculation formula based on a coefficients matrix (of the change reason of the relative power due to changes in the enrichment of U-235) for estimate the relative powers by pin of a cell. With this it was developed the computer program of fast calculation named PreDiCeldas. The one which by means of a simple search algorithm allows to minimize the relative power peak maximum of cell or LPPF. This is achieved varying the distribution of U-235 inside the cell, maintaining in turn fixed its average enrichment. The accuracy in the estimation of the relative powers for pin is of the order from 1.9% when comparing it with results of the 'best estimate' HELIOS code. With the PreDiCeldas it was possible, at one minimum time of calculation, to re-design a reference cell diminishing the LPPF, to the beginning of the life, of 1.44 to a value of 1.31. With the cell design with low LPPF is sought to even design cycles but extensive that those reached at the moment in the BWR of the Laguna Verde Central. (Author)

    This work presents results of non destructive mass analysis of natural uranium by the pulsed source technique. Fissioning is produced by irradiating the test sample with pulses of 14 MeV neutrons and the uranium mass is calculated on a relative scale from the measured emission of delayed neutrons. Individual measurements were normalised against the integral counts of a scintillation detector measuring the 14 MeV neutron intensity. Delayed neutrons were measured using a specially constructed slab detector operated in anti synchronism with the fast pulsed source. The 14 MeV neutrons were produced via the T(d,n) {sup 4}He reaction using a 400 kV Van de Graaff accelerated operated at 200 kV in the pulsed source mode. Three types of sample were analysed, namely: discs of metallic uranium, pellets of sintered uranium oxide and plates of uranium aluminium alloy sandwiched between aluminium. These plates simulated those of Material Testing Reactor fuel elements. Results of measurements were reproducible to within an overall error in the range 1.6 to 3.9%; the specific error depending on the shape, size and mass of the sample. (author)

    The fuel of Fast Breeder Reactors which consists of Uranium and Plutonium dioxide is mainly characterized by the amount and distribution of void volume and Plutonium and the amount of oxygen. Irradiation experiments carried out with this fuel have shown that initial structure of the fuel pellet is subjected to large changes during operation. These are consequences of the radial and axial temperature gradients within the fuel rods. (Author) 54 refs.

    Microbiological studies of activated sludge require time, specialized staff and the arduous task of identifying and analysing the results, which is not usually within the scope of every laboratory. This article raises the possibility of carrying out a simplified study of active sludge, based on its macroscopic and microscopic characteristics, which produces a sludge index value that is directly related to the percentage reduction of solids in suspension, COD and BOD in the waste water treatment plant. In addition, this sludge index would also provide the possibility of quickly obtaining a historical record of biological quality values using a simple protocol that could be use for comparisons.

    Young adult LAF{sub 1} mice received a single sublethal exposure to fission-spectrum neutrons, and were treated as follows: Group 1 - 195 to 199 rad, followed by a single subcutaneous injection of CCI{sub 4} one month later; Group II - CCl{sub 4} injected one day prior to neutron irradiation (280 - 329 rad); Group III - CCI{sub 4} only; no irradiation; Group IV - unilateral nephrectomy carried out one day before neutron irradiation (320 - 328 rad); Group V - neutron irradiation only (200 - 320 rad> In the Group I-mice, sacrificed 12-16 months post-irradiation, 75% exhibited hepatomas, while 92% of the mice in Group II showed hepatomas. By contrast, liver tumours appeared in 14% of mice receiving neutron irradiation only (Group V), and in 2.4% of mice exposed to a single dose (500 rad) of 250 kVp X-rays. The incidence of kidney neoplasms approached 100% in the uninephrectomized irradiated mice (Group IV), whereas such lesions were infrequent in control mice. The induction of these neoplasms is discussed in terms of initiation by the neutron radiation, and promotion by the specific proliferative stimuli exployed. The data indicate a potency factor of approximately 2 for fission neutrons relative to 250 kVp X-rays for initiation of kidney neoplasms in mice. With respect to the occurrence of lymphoma in this strain, the neutron-irradiated mice showed a reduced incidence (11 %) as compared with the X-irradiated animals (29%).

Al sacrificar los sujetos entre 12 y 16 meses a contar de la irradiacion, se encontraron hepatomas en el 75% de los ratones del Grupo I y en el 92% de los del Grupo II. En cambio, los tumores hepaticos aparecieron en el 14% de los ratones que solo fueron irradiados (Grupo V) y en el 2,4% de los expuestos a una dosis unica (500 rad) de rayos X de 250 kVp. En los ratones irradiados y sometidos a nefrectomia unilateral (Grupo IV), la frecuencia de neoplasmas renales se aproximo al 100%, mientras que en los animales testigo dichas lesiones fueron poco frecuentes. Los autores estudian la induccion de estos neoplasmas en lo que respecta a su iniciacion neutronica y su agravacion mediante el uso de determinados agentes estimulantes de la proliferacion. De los datos se desprende que, por lo que se refiere a la iniciacion de neoplasmas renales en el raton, los neutrones de fision son dos veces mas eficaces que los rayos X de 250 kVp.

    There is little information on developing countries about the use of diagnostic imaging procedures and the doses associated with radiological examinations. This study assessed the pattern and trend of diagnostic imaging usage in outpatients of the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS) by modality and examined body part. Emphasis was given to computed tomography (CT) scans for which the analysis was extended to the private health care sector and included the evaluation of age at examination distribution, and dose estimation for children and young adults. Information on the use of diagnostic imaging procedures among SUS outpatients was obtained from the Outpatient Information System (SIA) of the Department of Information Technology of SUS (DATASUS). Data on the use of CT in the private health care sector were extracted from the Radiological Information Systems (RIS) of 25 private radiology services in 8 Brazilian cities. Effective doses and absorbed doses on organs of interest were estimated individually for 4,497 patients younger than 20 years of age using CT scan technical parameters and Monte Carlo simulations of radiation transport. Between 2002 and 2012 it was observed that conventional radiology was the most frequent modality of diagnostic imaging in SUS outpatients, but more sophisticated modalities, such as CT and magnetic resonance imaging, had the highest growth rates over the study period. The most frequent CT scan in SUS outpatients between 2001 and 2011 was the head/neck exam, but abdomen/pelvis examinations were the ones that grew the most. Patients up to 20 years of age made approximately 13% and 9% of the CT examinations between 2008 and 2014 in the public and private health care systems, respectively. About one-third of the private-sector patients had more than one CT scan in this period. There was great variation in doses, even for the same type of procedure in patients of the same age group. The highest mean effective dose was 13.5 mSv estimated for abdomen/pelvis CT in children younger than one year of age. The highest absorbed doses were estimated for the brain after head/neck CT (23.8 to 29.0 mGy), which was the most common type of CT in children and young adults in the study period. The intense increase, the magnitude of the estimated doses and the large proportion of pediatric CT scans in Brazil point out to the need for initiatives to promote appropriate justification and optimization of these examinations in Brazil.

    One of the most important causes of residual damage in skeleton is incompletely treated osteoarticular infections (OAI). Goal: to assess the value of emergency three-phase bone scan (3FBS) in the evaluation of OAI. Methods: Thirty-eight children were studied with 54 3FBS. Results: Global analysis: 76% of the cases were principally articular; staphylococcus germs and hip's affection were the common. Nine patients with preoperative scan were positive with 16 foci, 86% confirmed by surgery cultivate. Seven children had negative 3FBS without posterior clinical symptomatology; in 5 of them it was demonstrated soft tissue involvement with normal osteoblastic phase. In 14/17 cases evaluated after surgical intervention, there was a relation between the scan and the clinical course. In two of those cases, in the 3FBS a new location was found. Conclusion: 3FBS is a helpful tool in the diagnosis and assessment of acute OAI in pediatric population. A positive 3FBS is highly accurate for OAI and a negative one rules it out securely (au)

    Recent foraminifera assemblages were studied to determine an ecological model of species distribution, diversity, equability and confining degree, with implications to environmental diagnosis and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. The study area is inserted in a sector from Sao Francisco River delta, with interconnected channels and a lagoon connected to the ocean. Besides the biotic variables, sediment salinity and granulometry was considered. An agglomerative hierarchical clustering (AHC) was performed and it was recognized three bio facies distributed along the sector: Miliammina/Arenoparrella in the channels, and Ammonia/Elphidium and Quinqueloculina at the lagoon. The diversity and equability values increase from the Miliammina/Arenoparrella biofacies to the Ammonia/Elphidium and Quinqueloculina biofacies. The confining indices show environments ranging from confined (channels) to different degrees of low restricted to marine influence. From the results obtained, it is possible to recognize that environments dominated by textulariines are characterized by low diversity, equability and high confining degree. Environments dominated by rotaliines and miliolines tend to be more diversified, equitable and low restricted to marine influence. The results are similar to other obtained in other Brazilian estuarine environments, differing only on dominance by some species (author)

    The search for more efficient thermal cycles has led a growing complexity of these cycles and therefore increased the inter-relationships between the thermodynamic components. This complexity is further enhanced with the over time, due to the occurrence of both natural as early degradation in a more or less degree, of all plant components. Several methodologies have been proposed for creating system for diagnostic / prognostic with the objective to detect these degradations (defects) and quantify the gain that can be obtained in the performance indicators of thermal cycles (usually specific fuel consumption and power net) by the elimination of anomalies. Two points have been emphasized as the most difficult in the development of such systems: the distinction between the performance variation of the components due only to the point of operation outside of these project components, caused by the presence of abnormality in another component (induced malfunction) and a decrease in the performance due to the presence of anomalies in the component itself (intrinsic malfunction). The second difficulty is the quantification of the effects induced by the elimination of each of the present anomalies. This work makes use of the method of reconciliation and using individual models of each component to predict unusual behavior of the same design point. The comparison of data from the system plant information, relating to the current state and data from the models, is used to detect anomalies. The methodology is explained in detail and an application of it in a Rankine cycle is used to well understand, especially in parts for the elimination of induced malfunctions, and related to the induced changes by the elimination of each one of the anomalies.

    The present paper reports a social, environment and economic diagnosis in an oil and energy organization, in the enlargement of its plant. Attending to some previous requirements made by this company, the diagnosis was accomplished making use of an innovative evaluation tool called MADSA{sup R} (Social and Environmental Evaluation Matrix). Through the customization of this tool, it was possible to evaluate, systematically, the performance of the engaged companies hired by the organization to implement its enterprise, based on proposed actions in QSMS - Quality, Safety, Environment and Health. The performance evaluation was supported by the employees', the organization, its clients' and the local community perception. MADSA{sup R} methodology made it possible to measure the accomplished gain through proposed actions. The development of a performance indicator allowed the comparison between achieved results and accomplished investments. It was concluded that MADSA{sup R} provided subsidies to elaborate an action plan to improve the organization achievements, since it was able to represent the strategy of the organization, to guide and standardize actions, to identify and quantify points to be made better of.

    Stromal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract encompass a group of neoplasms representing 1% to 3% of all digestive system tumors. When located in the stomach, their tendency to exhibit and exophytic growth pattern makes it necessary to establish the differential diagnosis with respect to other gastric tumors (lymphoma, exophytic adenocarcinoma) and nongastrointestinal masses. We present a case that illustrated the difficulties associated with the imaging diagnosis of these lesions and the importance of modern radiological techniques (helical computed tomography and magnetic resonance) and the correct interpretation on the part of radiologists to orient pathologists and clinicians toward the diagnosis and proper treatment.

    In this paper the development of a computer tool for the analysis of centrifugal pumps is presented. This tool allows the user to analyze the performance of the pump by means of the analysis of the behavior curves at its design conditions, reference and operation. In order to realize the analysis it is necessary that the user feeds the tool with the missing and necessary information according to norm ASME PTC 8.2 and under the specified conditions of calibration of the same norm, to eliminate possible errors in the results, a bad qualification or erroneous acquisition of the signals. The system must early be fed with the polynomials of the behavior curves of the pump in its design conditions to later correct the behavior based on a velocity of present operation.

    This work studies the contamination degree of the meso and infra-coastline sediments of the Baia de Todos os Santos, Bahia, the largest of Brazil, by organic compounds, mainly of period origin. The assessment was proceeded through quantification of total polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's), by fluorimetric analysis in continuous flow. The levels of contamination were quantified taking in consideration the levels considered as critical by the published literature. The grading of the target sites with those of the control sites (background) were compared also. The main objective was to define the degree of contamination relative to different areas of the bay, correlating with the different activities, such as oil exploitation, industrial production, mainly of oil processing at the north of the bay, port and urban, specially near the city of Salvador, with 2 million of inhabitants. In some stations, specially in those classified as industrial, urban and heavy boats traffic, sediments showed contamination, resulting in grades up to 2000 times greater than the control sites. Some regions, mainly industrial and urban, showed high PHA's contamination, higher than 200 {mu}g/g. The majority of sediments in areas remaining as recreational until present days showed no contamination, lesser than {mu}g/g. (author)

    The major projects concerning the dissemination of the use of photovoltaic solar energy (PVSE) in Brazil are located in the Northeast region. Particularly, the state of Pernambuco has the largest number of installations and the largest installed power of autonomous systems. There exist approximately 700 residencies, 250 schools and 150 water pumping systems among other applications using PVSE, totaling 250 k Wp installed in more than 80 cities of that State. This work analyses a diagnosis report on the state of functioning of 64 one-year-old water-pumping installations in 30 m to 60 m depth wells, driven by 300 to 1,600 Wp photovoltaic generators, the flows varying from 200 l/h to 6,000 l/h. Technical and non-technical problems were identified, ranging from improper location choice, wrong system dimensioning, inadequate photovoltaic generator installations, lack of user instruction and training, lack of responsibility definitions regarding the technical assistance and the needed follow-up. In the final part of this report proposals are enumerated concerning the establishment of a local and municipal organizing structure aiming the management of the water-pumping installations and the assurance of a larger success probability in the use of that technology.

    The inferior vena cava is the result of a complex embryologic process which takes place between 6 and 8 weeks of intra-uterine life. Several variations can occur during this process, and a defective embryogenesis of this vessel may lead to the development of anatomic variants. Although many of these variants are asymptomatic, the radiologist should be aware of them and of the potential medico-legal issues involved, especially in cases in which abdominal surgery or hemodynamic procedures are contemplated. In this paper, the major congenital anomalies involving the inferior vena cava are reviewed under the form of a pictorial essay, highlighting the role of the multiplanar imaging methods (volumetric computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging) in their diagnosis.

    Intranasal tumors are uncommon and in most cases are malignant, aggressive and with low to moderate potential for metastasis. Clinical signs are usually caused by progressive obstruction of the upper airways. The test cytopathological also is a diagnosis method, but the definitive diagnosis is made by histopathological. Computed tomography (CT) is recommended to treatment planning. A poodle was attended at the veterinary hospital with a clinical history of epistaxis and nasal and ocular secretions, seizures and severe dyspnoea. The animal underwent to radiographic examination of the chest and skull as well as helical computed tomography of the nasal cavity and brain before and after the administration of intravenous contrast. The CT findings revealed an expansive bilateral nasal cavity neoformation, with involvement of the retrobulbar space, right frontal sinus, brain and oral cavity, suggesting a neoplastic or an infectious process. The CT examination allowed the material collection, directly from the mass, to cytological examination, providing the diagnosis of carcinoma. CT also allowed the determination of the unfavorable prognosis of the patient and the treatment planning which not included the surgical excision of the neoformation. Although CT was not conclusive in the diagnosis of carcinoma, it was essential to accurately define the extent of the lesion, to guide the collection of material directly from the tumor and to determine the prognosis of the animal, proving to be an extremely useful tool in cases of tumors intranasal in dogs.

    Recently the radiolabelled anti microbic peptides has intended as new radiopharmaceuticals for distinguish a bacterial infection of a sterile inflammatory process through a diagnostic image. The ubiquicidine 29-41 (UBI), it is a fragment of an anti microbic cationic peptide located in the human skin whose sequence of amino acids is Thr-Gly-Arg-Ala-Lys-Arg-Arg-Met-Gln-Tyr-Asn-Arg-Arg. The objective of this study was to develop a derived of the UBI 29-41 radiolabelled with Tc-99m in high radiochemical purity and to evaluate the feasibility of using it in the specific detection of infectious focuses. The molecular structures of the UBI as well as of other 2 cationic peptides used as control (Tat-1-Scr and Tat-2-Scr), they were calculated and optimized in their more stable configuration by molecular mechanics procedures and quantum mechanics. Once established the site for the labelled with {sup 99m} Tc, the three complexes were represented by the general formula [Tc(V)(O)(H{sub 2}O){sub 2} (Lys{sub n=1,2}-Arg{sub n=0.1}-peptide)]{sup 10+,11+}, with potential energy of 104.5 Kcal/mol, 95.6 Kcal/mol and 90.8 Kcal/mol for the {sup 99m}Tc-Tat-1-Scr, {sup 99m} Tc-Tat-2-Scr and {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41 respectively. The three radio complexes got ready experimentally and their stability in vitro saline solution is evaluated, human serum and cysteine solutions. The experimental results correlated appropriately with the calculated data. The specificity in vitro was carried out evaluating the percentage of union of the {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41 as well as of the control peptides at bacteria of S. aureus and two tumoral cellular lines (LS174T and ACHN). The In vivo specificity was determined using Balb-C mice with induction in a paw of an infectious process and in another paw of a sterile inflammatory process. Simultaneously it was administered to the mice with infection and inflammation induced {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41 and {sup 67}Ga-citrate this last an unspecific radiopharmaceutical used so much in the detection of infectious processes as inflammatory, obtaining the respective gamma graphic images. Once proven the specificity and non toxicity of the {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41, their capacity of detecting infectious focuses obtaining images diagnoses in some osteomyelitis courses was evaluated. The results showed that the {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41 can prepare it as a highly stable radio complex with radiochemical purity >97%. This radiopharmaceutical unites specifically to the bacteria so much in vivo as in vitro, while the control peptides unites as much to bacteria as to tumoral cells. The gamma graphic images showed a quick renal purifying with minimum accumulation in non target organs and a relationship in infection sites/not infected infected sites of 2.2{+-}0.7 at 2 hours. The {sup 99m}Tc-UBI 29-41 can prepare it by a direct method with high radiochemical purity and, for their properties of molecular recognition and biokinetics, to be used as a diagnostic agent for the specific detection of infectious processes.

    The development of new radiopharmaceuticals is an essential activity to improve nuclear medicine, and essential for the early and effective diagnosis of oncological diseases. Among the various possibilities current research in the world, the radiopharmaceuticals to chemotherapeutic base may be the most effective in detecting tumors, particularly Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST), the Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma and neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors. However, difficulties in directing, as well as adhesion of the radiopharmaceutical in the desired location, are currently the main problems in the early detection and treatment of some of these tumors. Advances in the field of nanotechnology, particularly in recent years, indicate significant contribution to overcoming these obstacles, particularly in the implementation of molecular barriers as well as the functionalization of the nanoparticles, thereby improving targeting by the use of surface nucleotides, and the increased adhesion, which facilitates the release of the drug and therefore increases the chances of early diagnosis and more effective treatment. This study aimed to the production, characterization and evaluation of cytotoxicity, as well as in vivo biodistribution test Bevacizumab nanoparticles labeled with Technetium-99m radionuclide for detection of type GIST tumors. Bevacizumab was encapsulated in the form of nanoparticles by the emulsification method using double poly-acetic acid and polyvinyl alcohol polymers (PLA / PVA) at a concentration of 2% of the monoclonal antibody. The characterization of the nanoparticles was performed by the technique of scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The cytotoxicity assessment was performed by XTT assay with various cell lines of solid tumor cells. The labeling with technetium-99m was done by the direct method, and its yield determined by paper chromatography using paper Whatmam 1 as the stationary phase and acetone as mobile phase. In the biodistribution study, we used healthy Wistar rats killed 2 hours after administration. Organs were dissected for counting in the gamma counter. The SEM showed that the nanoparticles have spherical shape, with size dispersion of 180 to 200 nm. The cytotoxic effect of the nanoparticles was confirmed by the decrease of the viability of tumor cell lines MDA, MB-231, MCF-7 and A549 cells that express VEGF, from 500 mg / mL PLA / PVA / bevacizumab nanoparticles. Nanoparticles labelling had yield a higher than 99%. In the study of biodistribution with healthy Wistar rats it was observed an improvement in the biodistribution of the drug with decreased first-pass effect, making it more available in the blood, improved debugging and decrease in spleen and liver, with less involvement of the immune system. These results suggest greater safety and specificity of this nano radiopharmaceutical compared to the parent drug. (author)

    The current regulation, established by NOM-229-SSA1-2002 standard, {sup T}echnical requirements for facilities, health responsibilities, technical specifications for equipment and facilities for radiation protection in medical diagnosis with X-rays,{sup t}hat should be credited refresher courses, and training in radiation safety in accordance with current regulations, however, has been observed that the assistance and accreditation of courses is basically to cover administrative and regulatory requirements and therefore does not necessarily cover needs of the patient to radiation protection in the use of old and new technologies. David Brenner and Eric Hall claim that between 1.5 and 2% of all cancers in the USA may be attributable to exposure to X-ray computerized tomography techniques, given the intensive use of these techniques and the patient dose ranges in which incurred. While this is not debatable, if it is, the alternative does not seem to be abandoning the use of computerized tomography, because it gives them undoubted benefits with respect to invasive procedures. Deserves mention concerns the use of computerized tomography in children using scanning protocols designed for adults, in which case it incurs in 5 times higher dose. An additional warning about unwarranted use of computerized tomography is a procedure of this technique in abdomen resulting in an equivalent dose to 298 times that of a mammogram. Additional aspects such as biological effects (including deterministic) of both medical staff and patients of interventional procedures further reinforces the idea that there are education programs in radiation protection. Attention must put in the new generations, including in the curricula of medical residencies in radiology, endoscopy, cardiology and orthopedic, the education (no emerging courses) in radiation protection, radiobiology, radiology physics, and other topics, but previously must have medical physicists in radiology available to train new generations.

    Diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) can indicate an initial dementia framework, or increase in the likelihood of developing this. The PET/CT (positron emission tomography associated with computed tomography) has shown excellent prospects for MCI diagnosis. The PET/CT helps diagnosis, but the patients effective dose is higher, it depends on the computed tomography (CT) protocol and the radiopharmaceutical patient injected activity. This study evaluates the dose in 38 male patients undergoing this technique for MCI diagnosis. To assess the radiation level from CT modality imaging was used TLD100 detectors embedded in a male anthropomorphic Alderson Randon® phantom, undergoing the same imaging protocol to which patients were referred. The dose resulting of radiopharmaceutical injected activity was estimated using the ICRP106 model proposed. The PET / CT effective dose for producing image was (5.12 ± 0.90) mSv. The contribution to the effective dose due to the FDG brain incorporation was (0.12 ± 0.01) mSv and thyroid (0.13 ± 0.02) mSv. The effective dose contribution due to brain and thyroid CT irradiation was (0.18 ± 0.01) mSv and (0.010 ± 0.001) mSv, respectively. The use of optimized CT protocols and FDG injected activity reduction can assist in this procedure dose reduction. (author)

    To assess the sensitivity and specificity of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) as a noninvasive diagnostic technique, comparing it with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTHC) in the diagnosis of biliary disease, focusing particularly on patients with choledocholithiasis. Between June 1997 and february 1998, 109 patients referred by the Corporacio Sanitaria del Parc Tauli and the Hospital Mutua de terrasa in Barcelona, Spain were evaluated. MRCP and ERCP or PTHC were performed in every case, always in that order and separated by a maximum of 7 days. Twenty-four patients were excluded from the study for different reasons, leaving a series of 85 patients. All the studies were performed with a 1-Tesla Siemens Magneton Impact Expert using half-fourier single-short turbo spin-echo (HASTE) and rapid acquisition with relaxation enhancement (RARE) methods in several coronal and axial planes. The MRCP readings were carried out by consensus by two radiologists who are experts in the assessment of diseases of the digestive tract. In this series of 85 patients; MCRP showed a sensitivity of 98.4%, a specificity of 94.7%, a positive predictive value of 98.4% and a negative predictive value of 94.7% for the detection of biliary diseases. For the detection choledocholithiasis, these values were 100%, 89.5%, 88% and 100%, respectively. MRCP is extremely reliable in the diagnosis of biliary diseases, especially in cases of choledocholithiasis. Its high negative predictive value obviates the need for other invasive diagnostic tests.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo nos proponemos analizar la evolución económico-financiera de las sociedades cooperativas en los últimos años, especialmente los años 2004 y 2007 por considerar que en el primero de ellos las empresas, en general, gozaban de una cierta estabilidad que desaparece con los efectos de la crisis económica, y 2007 como año en el que sus efectos empiezan a ser percibidos globalmente en el tejido empresarial. En primer lugar evaluaremos la importancia de estas empresas en España. A continuación, tomando como referencia los datos financieros de una muestra de empresas de los años 2004 y 2007, realizaremos un análisis estadístico de significatividad de las diferencias en rentabilidad, financiación, actividad, solvencia, inversión y presión fiscal, valorando también las posibles diferencias en los informes de auditoría emitidos. Por ultimo, exponemos los resultados alcanzados y constatamos su coherencia con la evolución económica experimentada por nuestro país en el periodo objeto de estudio, apreciándose un empeoramiento de la situación económico-financiera de las sociedades cooperativas. / In this paper we analyze the economic and financial performance of cooperatives in recent years, specially during 2004 and 2007, on the grounds that in the former of these years companies in general enjoyed a certain stability that disappears with the effects of the current economic crisis, and the latter as the year in which the effects of the crisis are beginning to be perceived globally in the business environment. First, we evaluate the potential importance of cooperative enterprises in Spain. Then, using financial data of a sample of firms for years 2004 and 2007, we carried out a statistical analysis of differences in profitability, financing, performance, solvency, investment and tax burden; also we assessed the existence of possible differences in audit reports issued for the period considered. Finally, we show the results which are consistent with the economic evolution experienced by our country in the period under review, in the sense that most of the financial indicators analyzed of cooperative enterprises are considerably worse in year 2007.

    To study the effectiveness of Doppler echography in the deep venous system of the lower limbs for deep venous thrombosis detection in patients suspected of having pulmonary thromboembolism. There were received 341 consecutive suspected pulmonary thromboembolism patients, all of whom were emergency room attended. All were submitted to CT pulmonary angiography in order to evaluate thrombus presence in the pulmonary tree. Without knowing the results of the previous exploration, we studied 301 of the patients using Doppler echography in deep venous system of the lower limbs in order to evaluate thrombus presence. In the group of CT-detected pulmonary thromboembolism patients, the percentage of Doppler echography-detected deep venous thrombosis was 46.3%, while in the group of non-detected patients this percentage decreased to 4.7%. Additional deep venous system exploration in clinically suspected pulmonary thiolcarbamate patients is useful, since it can increase the detection rate of venous thromboembolic disease, thereby leading to early treatment and prevention of the disease's manifestation in the lungs. Realization of Doppler echography is especially beneficial in those patients who exhibit no factors which predispose them to thromboembolic disease, as well as in patients who have previously had venous thrombosis. This exploration account for 4.7% of non-detected pulmonary embolism patients being added to the ranks of those with thromboembolic disease, an important percentage when taking into consideration the high pulmonary thromboembolism morbimortality rate.

    The supraspinatus muscle performs about 60 % of the elevation-abduction motion of the arm; it has a prominent functional role among the extra rotational muscles of the shoulder and is the most injured in subacromial space conditions. Seventy-four patients, aged 21-64 years, were examined to compare ultrasonography (US) results with surgical findings in supraspinatus conditions and to analyze the possible pitfalls in US diagnosis. All the patients underwent conventional X-ray US and then surgery or arthroscopy. The following criteria were considered: morphology, thickness, echotexture, the convexity of the superior border of supraspinatus tendon, the relationships with the subacromial bursa and the tendon of the biceps long head, the regularity of the bone cortex of the humeral head. US showed: perforating focal injuries in 21 patients; deep focal injuries in 10 patients; intramural focal injuries in 6 patients; superficial focal injuries in 8 patients; complete tendon tear with detachment in 19 cases. 62/74 US diagnoses were surgically confirmed, with a specificity of 83.7 %. In their experience, US provided very useful information about the pattern, size and site of the injuries and was very helpful in the surgical planning.

  17. Development of lutetium-labeled bombesin derivates: relationship between structure and diagnostic-therapeutic activity for prostate tumor; Desenvolvimento de derivados da bombesina radiomarcados com lutecio-177: relacao estrutura e potencial diagnostico-terapeutico para tumor de prostata

    Bombesin (BBN) receptors - in particular, the gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) receptor peptide - have been shown to be massively over expressed in several human tumors types, including prostate cancer, and could be an alternative as target for its treatment by radionuclide therapy (RNT). A large number of BBN analogs had already been synthesized for this purpose and have shown to reduce tumor growth in mice. Nevertheless, most of the studied analogs exhibit high abdominal accumulation, especially in pancreas. This abdominal accumulation may represent a problem in clinical use of radiolabeled bombesin analogs probably due to serious side effects to patients. The goal of the present work was to radiolabel a novel series of bombesin derivatives with lutetium-177 and to evaluate the relationship between their structure and diagnostic-therapeutic activity for prostate tumor. The generic structure of studied peptides is DOTA-Phe-(Gly){sub n}-BBN(6-14), where DOTA is the chelator, n is the number of glycine amino acids of Phe-(Gly){sub n} spacer and BBN(6-14) is the bombesin sequence from the amino acid 6 to the amino acid 14. Preliminary studies were done to establish the ideal labeling conditions for obtaining the highest yield of labeled bombesin derivatives, determined by instant thin layer chromatography (ITLC-SG) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The stability of the preparations was evaluated either after storing at 2-8 degree C or incubation in human serum at 37 degree C and the partition coefficient was determined in n:octanol:water. In vivo studies were performed in both healthy Balb-c and Nude mice bearing PC-3 xenografts, in order to characterize the biological properties of labeled peptides. In vitro studies involved the evaluation of cold bombesin derivatives effect in PC-3 cells proliferation. Bombesin derivatives were successfully labeled with high yield at optimized conditions and exhibited high stability at 4 degree C. The analysis of the stability in human serum suggested a time-course metabolic degradation of labeled peptides by serum enzymes. The addition of four glycine amino acids in the spacer of bombesin derivatives resulted in slower degradation by human serum enzymes after 4 hours of incubation. HPLC and partition coefficient studies showed that bombesin derivatives present low lipophilicity and the increase of glycine amino acids number in peptides spacers slightly reduced their lipophilicity. The radiolabeled bombesin derivatives presented fast blood clearance, rapid excretion, performed mainly by renal pathway, and low abdominal accumulation in in vivo studies in Balb-c mice. Investigations in Nude mice bearing PC-3 tumor showed that the radio peptides can target tumor cells. Higher tumor uptake was observed with the derivatives of larger spacers at 1 hour post injection, but higher tumor retention after 4 and 24 hours was observed with the derivative of smaller spacer. In addition, tumor uptake showed to be specific and allowed tumor detection by scintigraphy imaging, especially 30 minutes post injection. In addition, the studied bombesin derivatives did not present proliferative or cytotoxic effect to PC-3 cells in vitro and can be characterized as weak agonists or antagonists of bombesin receptors. The results of this work showed that phenyl-glycine extended bombesin derivatives are promising for in vivo applications. The higher tumor uptake of derivatives with larger spacer suggests that these molecules are more applicable in diagnostic procedures. The derivative with smaller spacer is more useful to be applied in radionuclide therapy, because of its higher tumor retention. (author)

    Thanatophoric Dysplasia is a rare genetic disorder that leads to the normal growth of the individual leaving him with short stature deterrent. Patients with this syndrome have disproportionately short limbs, with extra skin folds, narrowing chest, small ribs, underdeveloped lungs and hydrocephalus. The Thanatophoric Dysplasia can be diagnosed by ultrasonography (US), with approximately 23 weeks of gestation. If there is suspicion of a lethal skeletal dysplasia CT with 3D reconstruction can be suggested. In the use of CT Multslice 3D for prenatal diagnosis of Thanatophoric Dysplasia, one should take into account the radiation dose. To reduce the radiation dose in the pregnant woman and her fetus, it is possible to employ a chain of smaller pipe without compromising the picture quality through automatic exposure control (AEC) which is based on the principle of CT Multslice. AEC Such systems are designed to adjust the tube current according to the patients shape, size, and attenuation of X-rays. One study compared the use of 2D-US and 3D-CT completion is lower cost and the absence of radiation in the US, the method is dependent on the volume of amniotic fluid and fetal position. The 3D-CT can demonstrate all fetal skeleton. The 2D US provided correct diagnosis in four of the six cases studied, while 3D-CT yielded the correct diagnosis in all six cases. (author)

    In the slaughterhouses the operations that if unchain in the one before slaughter until the storage of the end item are intensely dependents of the electric energy and answer for the final product quality. This work had as objective to diagnosis, to analyze and to consider solutions that lead to the rational use of the electric energy without intervening or keeping the product quality in the lines of production of one cold storage room of broiler including the storage process that uses chambers of cooling and freezing. This work was carried through in one cold storage room of slaughter of chicken situated in the state of Sao Paulo in the period of 2004 the 2008. Through the analyses it was verified that the compressors of the room of machines, responsible for the maintenance of the cold of cooled environments, had presented the biggest consumption of electric energy in the cold storage room, about 97%. It was observed that in none of the evaluated electric engines, the potency factor, reaches the value recommended for the ANEEL, and that possibly with the implantation of measures of conservation of electric energy pointers of energy efficiency as the load factor and the specific consumption they can be optimized. It was concluded to have imperfections in the use of the electric energy demonstrating necessity of the implementation of an action plan that aims at the conservation and the rational use of the energy and consequence reduction in the costs generated for production of broiler.

    The objective of this study is to analyze the generation and disposal of solid waste from the exploration and production activities of oil and natural gas in Brazilian waters. We used data from the implementation reports of pollution control project of the activities licensed by IBAMA. During 2009 the activities related to exploration and production of offshore oil and gas produced a total of 44,437 tons of solid waste, with the main waste generated corresponding to: oily waste (16,002 t); Metal uncontaminated (11,085 t); contaminated waste (5630 t), non recycling waste (4935 t); Wood uncontaminated (1,861 t), chemicals (1,146 t). Considering the total waste generated by activities during the period analyzed, it was observed that 54.3% are made up of waste Class I (hazardous waste), 27.9% of Class II wastes (waste non-hazardous non-inert); and 17.8% of waste Class IIB (non-hazardous and inert waste). The results obtained in this work enabled the scenario of waste generation by the E and P offshore activities. As a result, the survey serves as a starting point for monitoring the progress in implementing the projects sought Pollution Control of licensed projects, as well as support the monitoring of reflexes arising from the intensification of activities in certain regions.

    Transient identification in Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is often a very hard task and may involve a great amount of human cognition. The early identification of unexpected departures from steady state behavior is an essential step for the operation, control and accident management in NPPs. The bases for the transient identification relay on the evidence that different system faults and anomalies lead to different pattern evolution in the involved process variables. During an abnormal event, the operator must monitor a great amount of information from the instruments that represents a specific type of event Several systems based on specialist systems, neural-networks, and fuzzy logic have been developed for transient identification. In the work, we investigate the possibility of using a Neuro Fuzzy modeling tool for efficient transient identification, aiming to helping the operator crew to take decisions relative to the procedure to be followed in situations of accidents/transients at NPPs. The proposed system uses artificial neural networks (ANN) as first level transient diagnostic After the ANN has done the preliminary transient type identification, a fuzzy-logic system analyzes the results emitting reliability degree of it. A preliminary evaluation of the developed system was made at the Human-System Interface Laboratory (LABIHS). The obtained results show that the system can help the operators to take decisions during transients/accidents in the plant (author)

    We describe three improved methods of detecting prostate cancer while it is still confined to the gland: Prostrate specific antigen (PSA), trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) and trans-rectal ultrasound-directed prostatic fine needle aspirate (TRFNA). Of a total of 60 studied cases, 23 cytological procedures were done, and half of these were found to have prostate cancer. We compare traditional methods like digital rectal examination and prostatic phosphatase acid with PSA and TRFNA. We conclude that these methods increase the sensibility and specificity of early prostate cancer detection.

    Despite the wide range of antineoplastic agents available, resistance of some types of cancer and toxicity to normal cells have been identified as the main causes of treatment failure and death. The lack of early and precise diagnosis is also responsible for reducing survival of cancer patients. In this context, the development of substances with low toxicity and therapeutic potential and/or diagnosis purpose, is the major tool in an attempt to increase the survival of patients and assure the safety and efficacy of treatment. Thiosemicarbazones (TSC) are a class of synthetic compounds that have several biological activities, including antitumor. Although several studies have shown the great potential of TSC as therapeutic and / or diagnostic agents, different chemical modifications performed on this class of molecules indicate new possibilities for applications and still require further studies. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential applicability of 2-acetylpyridine N-4-phenyl thiosemicarbazones derivatives for cancer therapy and diagnosis. The results showed that all 13 TSC tested were cytotoxic to breast and glioblastoma tumor cell lines, presenting higher in vitro antitumor activity than etoposide, an antineoplastic and inhibitor of topoisomerase II frequently used for cancer therapy. The TSC that have halogen or nitro on ortho position showed higher antitumor activity in vitro than their isomers with halogen or nitro on meta or para position of the phenyl group. H2Ac4oFPh and H2Ac4oClPh compounds showed the highest antitumor activity among all tested compounds, with IC{sub 50} in nanomolar order. These TSC induced cell death by apoptosis and oxidative stress was responsible, at least in part, for this type of cell death. The 5 mg.kg{sup -1} H2Ac4oFPh dose, administered s.c., for 4 consecutive days, did not induce important toxicity; however, the same treatment protocol was not effective for tumor growth reduction in an animal model of brain tumor. Radioactive probes of H2Ac4oFPh were synthesized using {sup 111}In or {sup 67}Ga as radiotracers, with satisfactory specific activity and radiochemical purity. H2Ac4oFPh-{sup 111}In was more useful than H2Ac4oFPh-{sup 67}Ga, with higher specific activity, better chemical purity, better in vitro stability, higher distribution volume, faster blood clearance and, therefore, was considered the most promising for application in molecular imaging studies. H2Ac4oFPh-{sup 111}In also showed high lipophilicity and was internalized by glioblastoma cells in vitro. H2Ac4oFPh-{sup 111}In showed significative tumor uptake in vivo, however, the high abdominal uptake and high background did not allow a good visualization of tumor in imaging studies. Unlike intravenous administration, intratumoral administration allowed greater diffusion and retention of H2Ac4oFPh-{sup 111}In in the tumor site and significantly reduced the activity accumulated in the organs. These results encourage new experiments to be performed in order to promote the complexation of H2Ac4oFPh with particle emitters, such as yttrium-90, to evaluate its application in local radioisotopic therapy for glioblastoma multiforme.

CASE DESCRIPTION: A 10-year-old female patient that has developed, since the age of 4, progressive stiffness of the joints and spine and ossification of soft tissues, often associated with trauma. The hallux valgus deviation of both toes was present from birth. X-ray showed the presence of heterotopic ossification. COMMENTS: This disease is likely to be diagnosed with the resources available in primary health care, since it is based on clinical findings. Currently, there is no cure for this disease, but high doses of corticosteroids and the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are available in the primary care level, may limit the development of new calcifications and mitigate the pain, improving the quality of life of these patients.

    A comparative study whose main objective is the evaluation of the diagnoses capacity of the DETEC - PC, a detection-measurement system for the reception of iodine in thyroid, with it presumptive diagnostic is presented. To such effect a clinical essay was designed in which all the patients included in the study were evaluated using the new equipment (DETEC - PC) and the standard diagnoses procedure well-known for the initials RIA. The sample size was calculated in a such way that the percent of gross coincidence among both methods could be estimate with a precision of 1% at a trust level of 95%. In total 110 patients were included in the essay. For the analysis of the agreement in the diagnostic it was used the Kappa statistician. The obtained results showed a high grade of gross agreement and an agreement level among moderate and substantial when it was corrected by possible random agreement among both procedures. (Author)

    In Patagonia there are academic centers, health and industrial facilities that use ionizing radiations in its usual practices. However, they do not have protocols that respond to local needs. For this reason was held from October 5 to November 10, 2012 in Bariloche Atomic Center, a training course for health personnel. The range of topics covered ranged from the definition of dosimetry quantities, types of radiation and biological dosimetry, biological effects, radiation acute syndrome, radiation-induced cutaneous syndrome, internal contamination, screening in radiological emergencies, etc.The course provided a theoretical and practical guide about how to recognize and treat people exposed to radiations, guidelines for acting in radiological emergencies and a perception of the psychosocial impact of the radiation accidents.The result was a pocket book for health personnel that will be used in case of having a patient with radiation induced injury.

    Lack of data regarding environmental matters in relation to the great majority of MSW landfills throughout Spanish territory makes it difficult to consider them suitable for exploitation or territorial expansion required for different activities demanded by society. The environmental risk of a landfill must be minimised with the help of environmental planning tools. One of these tools is based on the environmental diagnosis and characterisation of the areas affected by the solid waste deposit.. Diagnosis by means of quantifiable environmental indexes helped us in our work to determine the priorities for the environmental control of certain Spanish landfills. This diagnosis was used for creating the Observatory on Solid Waste Landfills, organized by ATEGRUS (Spanish Technical Association for Waste Management) in 2003 and presented at ATEGRUS 30th Annual conference on Controlled Landfills.

    The congenital hypothyroidism is an endocrine illness knows from the X V century. It is caused by the anatomical or functional absence of the thyroid gland, what causes a deficiency in the thyroid hormones production. These hormones are indispensable for an appropriate physical and mental development from the first moments of the life. This illness is the more frequent cause of avoidable mental retardation in the child. In Mexico, is considered that 1 of each 2,537 newborns present congenital hypothyroidism, this frequency is extraordinarily high in relation to other countries. For the opportune confirmation of this illness is carried out by means of the radio immuno analysis that is a competitive type technique which is based on the antigen-antibody reaction. To the present antigen in the sample problem, is go to add a constant and known quantity of labelled antigen (hot antigen). The labelled antigens are formed substituting some of the normal atoms of the antigen for the corresponding radioactive isotope I{sup 125} in the molecule. The two types of antigens, cold and hot will compete, in equality of conditions, to unite with the available antibody. The concentrations of labelled antigen and antibody not change, the only variable of the system is the non labelled antigen (cold antigen) concentration. As much as more it is the quantity of cold antigen in the sample problem, it is displaced at the hot antigen and therefore they are fixed to the antibody smaller quantities of labelled antigen. Therefore, the formation of radioactive complexes (Ag-Ac) it varies in function of the non labelled antigen concentration: to major non labelled antigen concentration, major formation of non labelled antigen-antibody complexes, and minor formation of radioactive complexes and vice versa. 29 cases were analyzed with suspicion of congenital hypothyroidism therefore the T4 neonatal and TSH neonatal were quantified by the radio immuno analysis technique giving the confirmation of a single positive case as result. In this way it is contributed to the opportune confirmation of the results provided by the neonatal sieve for the detection and opportune treatment in order to avoid the congenital hypothyroidism consequences.

    Fractures on the maxillofacial complex demand a detailed three dimensional comprehension of the damaged area. A correct radiographic evaluation is essential for the planning of the repair surgery. The surgical maneuvers involving this type of trauma depend on the knowledge of anatomy and an image diagnosis. The three dimensional images are especially important for the surgeons due to the fact that they allow a panoramic representation of the facial complex and of the fracture, facilitating the treatment planning. This study aims to report three clinical cases, as well as a literature review, discussing the utilization of three-dimensional tomography reconstructions on the diagnosis of the facial trauma.

    Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula is not clinically recognized until the patient reaches adulthood in most cases. The symptoms, when present may not be specific, and include hemoptysis, epistaxis and low oxygen saturation, among others. Plain radiography shows a round or oval lobulated mass of uniform density, an image that is often diagnostic since the arterial and venous vessels are visible. Contrast-enhanced helical computed tomography and magnetic resonance angiography are ideal techniques for pretreatment evaluation, showing the nutrient artery from the lung hilum and the draining vein toward left atrium. Excellent results are obtained with coil embolization. (Author) 8 refs.

    Conjoined twins have a rare prevalence and special curiosity among physicians and the general population. The reported frequency varies from 1:50,000 to 1:200,000 pregnancies. Its early diagnosis becomes very important when we think about pregnancy management, method of delivery and neonatal care. We describe two cases of conjoined twins diagnosed by ultrasound and magnetic resonance during prenatal care with the aim to better studying the fetus anatomy. The first conjoined twins were cephalopagus sharing head, thorax and abdominal wall and with two pelvis and four arms and four legs. The second were thoracopagus, united by thorax and part of abdomen. Magnetic resonance imaging contribution was not important to diagnose conjoined twins. However, it was useful to describe the shared organs, contributing to define fetal outcome. (author)

    The monitoring and diagnosis area is presenting an impressive development in recent years with the introduction of new diagnosis techniques as well as with the use the computers in the processing of the information and of the diagnosis techniques. The contribution of the artificial intelligence in the automation of the defect diagnosis is developing continually and the growing automation in the industry meets this new techniques. In the nuclear area, the growing concern with the safety in the facilities requires more effective techniques that have been sought to increase the safety level. Some nuclear power stations have already installed in some machines, sensors that allow the verification of their operational conditions. In this way, the present work can also collaborate in this area, helping in the diagnosis of the operational condition of the machines. This work presents a new technique for characteristic extraction based on the Zero Crossing of Wavelet Transform, contributing with the development of this dynamic area. The technique of artificial intelligence was used in this work the Paraconsistent Logic of Annotation with Two values (LPA2v), contributing with the automation of the diagnosis of defects, because this logic can deal with contradictory results that the techniques of feature extraction can present. This work also concentrated on the identification of defects in its initial phase trying to use accelerometers, because they are robust sensors, of low cost and can be easily found the industry in general. The results obtained in this work were accomplished through the use of an experimental database, and it was observed that the results of diagnoses of defects shown good results for defects in their initial phase.

    The number of medical examinations and procedures that use ionizing radiation have continuously increased in recently years. More than 90% of human-generated exposures to ionizing radiation are from medical uses and the collective dose due to patient exposures is 200 times greater than the occupational dose of exposed workers. At the same time, the emergence of new technologies, the increased use of Computerized Tomography (CT)-even for pediatric patients- the development of digital radiography, interventional radiology and the new technologies in nuclear medicine with the use of hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT equipment have all contributed as well to an increase in the doses received by patients. This poses a challenge to the regulatory authorities in the field of radiological protection, the goal of which is to makes sure that the risks to patients are as low as possible compared to the benefits yielded by the use of ionizing radiation for medical purposes, in accordance with ALARA criteria.

    To study the ultrasonographic findings in a series of patients with Crohn's disease (CD). The series consisted of 80 patients who underwent abdominal ultrasound over a three-year period for whom there was no prior knowledge of radiologic and/or endoscopic findings. The technique involved gradually applying pressure to the abdomen, and a thickening of the intestinal wall of 4 mm or more was considered indicative of disease. The localization, extension, lesions, activity and possible complications associated with the process were established definitively by endoscopy, intestinal transit, barium enema and/or computed tomography, depending on the type of intestinal involvement. Ultrasound disclosed the presence of inflammatory bowel disease in 71 of the 80 patients. Of these, 69 presented CD; the other two patients were finally diagnosed as having ulcerative colitis and infectious enterocolitis, respectively. The results of the study were considered to be normal in 7 patients in whom the disease was in an inactive phase. In 2 cases, ultrasound demonstrated the presence of acute appendicitis and histological examination confirmed it to be granulomatous appendicitis. Thickening of the bowel wall, proliferation of mesenteric fat, and ulcers and fissures in abdominal wall were the most common findings. The most predominant complications were fistulas, stenosis and abscesses. Ultrasound is a highly useful method for the diagnosis, assessment of activity, follow-up and detection of complications in this inflammatory bowel disease. Among the advantages are its low cost and the possibility of performing repeated studies without exposing the patient to radiation or the discomfort of endoscopy. (Author) 17 refs.

    This paper presents a methodology for assessing the social-environmental fragility of a watershed where there is potential for installation of hydropower projects. The method includes dividing the watershed into sub areas (by analysis of similar characteristics) and, subsequently, the use of 23 indicators grouped into six social-environmental components (Water Resources and Aquatic Ecosystems, Terrestrial Ecosystems and the Physical Environment, Territorial Organization, Way of Life, Economic Base and Indigenous Communities and Traditional Populations), which together seek to portray all aspects involved in the fragility of the area. The technique was applied in the basin of the Coxim river in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, assuming that there is interest or the possibility of installing hydropower plants within its boundaries. The basin was divided into three sub areas, considering physical parameters (such as topography, rainfall and hydrology), which were ranked by calculating the fragility of each one of the social-environmental indicators. As a result, a map was created to indicate the sub areas more susceptible to damage and those which should be more resistant to the installation of impacting activities, such as hydropower plants. The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the work of a multidisciplinary team can reduce the degree of subjectivity of the methodology and allow, (by modifying some considerations inherent in the partial calculations,) its application in other situations where the possibility of installing hydropower projects is not considered.

    In order to assess the exposure of the Portuguese population to ionizing radiation due to medical examinations of diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, a working group, consisting of 40 institutions, public and private, was created to evaluation the coletive dose in the Portuguese population in 2010. This work was conducted in collaboration with the Dose Datamed European consortium, which aims to assess the exposure of the European population to ionizing radiation due to 20 diagnostic radiology examinations most frequent in Europe (the 'TOP 20') and nuclear medicine examinations. We obtained an average value of collective dose of Almost-Equal-To 1 mSv/caput, which puts Portugal in the category of countries medium to high exposure to Europe. We hope that this work can be a starting point to bridge the persistent lack of studies in the areas referred to in Portugal, and to enable the characterization periodic exposure of the Portuguese population to ionizing radiation in the context of medical applications.

    Maintenance Technicians, more and more, must dispose of predictive tools to diagnose the state of the equipment, especially if they are responsible for the emergency diesel in a Nuclear Power Plant. the use of these tools should be understood as a complement to more classic Preventive Maintenance of the equipment, thus increasing their availability because the parameters necessary for evaluating motor behaviour are taken while the engine is in operation. In this way, it facilitates the decision-making on whether to carry out certain preventive tasks. The basic information about this diagnostic tool presented in this article is based on the reading, recording and analysis of pressure, vibrations and acoustic emission in each engine cylinder during its operating cycle. A nice addition to the above diagnosis is carrying out and endoscopy of each cylinder, which enables the observation of: water leaks, injector leaks, the spraying of each injector, valve leaks,... etc. This article describes the fundamentals of a non-intrusive, easy to use and low cost tool, used to check the function of Emergency Diesel engines, as well as the experience of its use in the St. Maria Garona Nuclear Plant. The article also describes the case of a fault which occurred in the Nuclear Power plant in Garona that would hardly have been possible to detect by other means. This tool was developed jointly by the Engines Laboratory of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Zaragoza and the St. Maria Garona Nuclear Plant. It has been further improved, extended and optimized over the more than 10 years of its use. (Author)

    The need for a simple clinical test for singling out patients suffering from arterial hypertension due to renovascular causes has long been recognized. Over the past year, the authors have been using a linear scintillation scanner with ten detectors in parallel for delineating lesions within the kidney and estimating the rate of renal accumulation of {sup 203}Hg-labelled chlormerodrin. With this apparatus one can obtain very satisfactory renal images within two or three minutes after intravenous administration of 100 - 250 mCi of a radioactive drug. Scintigraphic images of both kidneys were obtained at 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 min after administration of the radioactive compound without supression of the background radioactivity. All data were recorded on magnetic tape to permit subsequent selection of the technical parameters required for the reproduction of an image of optimum contrast and intensity. The pulse integrator included in the instrument was used to assess radioactivity in both kidneys during each scanning. Results were expressed as the ratio of renal radioactivity at a given time (C{sub t}) to renal radioactivity after five minutes (C{sub 5}); this value was called the renal concentration index (RCI). To distinguish bilateral renal ischaemia from essential arterial hypertension, the RCI of the right kidney (RK) was divided by the RCI of the left kidney (LK), which gave a comparative index for the two kidneys (I{sub comp}.). The authors conclude that the procedure as described could be used as a selective test for arterial hypertension of renovascular origin, since it furnishes an index directly correlated with the individual renal plasma flow and a series of images representative of the regional blood flow in each of the kidneys. As renal concentration of chlormerodrin requires both good renal blood flow and tubular cell efficiency, in cases of unilateral tubular necrosis results will be obtained similar to those for cases of unilateral renal ischaemia. The authors believe that in the study of arterial hypertension scintigraphic scanning should be carried out in conjunction with the plot of a curve showing renal concentration of chlormerodrin. This is to avoid possible errors due to differences in geometry of the two kidneys in relation to the detector. (author) [Spanish] Durante mucho tiempo se ha reconocido la necesidad de una prueba clinica sencilla que permita seleccionar a los pacientes cuya hipertension arterial tenga un origen renovascular. Durante el ultimo ano hemos empleado un centelleografo lineal con diez detectores en paralelo, para la delineacion de las lesiones localizadas en el rinon y para la estimacion de la velocidad de la concentracion renal de la cloromerodrina marcada con {sup 203}Hg. Este centelleografo nos permite obtener imagenes renales muy satisfactorias en 263 min, despues de la administracion endovenosa de 100 a 250 {mu}Ci del radiofarmaco. Despues de la administracion del compuesto radiactivo se obtuvieron imagenes centelleograficas de ambos rinones a los 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 y 60 min, sin suprimir la radiactividad de fondo. Todos los datos fueron registrados en una cinta magnetica para posteriormente seleccionar los factores tecnicos necesarios para reproducir una imagen con cualidades optimas de contraste e intensidad. El integrador de pulsos, incluido en el instrumento, fue empleado para estimar la radiactividad en cada uno de los rinones durante cada exploracion centelleografica. Los resultados fueron expresados como la relacion de la radiactividad renal a un tiempo dado (C{sub t}) sobre la radiactividad renal a los 5 min (C{sub 5}), (C{sub t}/C{sub 5}); este valor fue denominado indice de la concentracion renal (ICR). Para diferenciar la isquemia renal bilateral de la hipertension arterial esencial, el ICR del rinon derecho (RD) fue dividido por el ICR del rinon izquierdo (RI), obteniendose un indice de comparacion entre ambos rinones (comp. I). Se concluye que el procedimiento aqui descrito puede ser empleado como una prueba filtro de la hipertension arterial de origen renovascular, pues ofrece un indice correlacionado en forma directa con el flujo plasmatico renal individual y una serie de imagenes representativas del flujo sanguineo regional en cada uno de los rinones. Como la concentracion renal de la cloromerodrina requiere tanto de un buen flujo sanguineo renal como de la eficiencia de la celula tubular, en los casos de necrosis tubular unilateral se obtendran resultados similares a los obtenidos en los casos de isquemia renal unilateral. En el estudio de la hipertension arterial creemos que el estudio centelleografico necesita ir acompanado del trazado de una curva de concentracion renal de la cloromerodrina para evitar posibles errores causados por diferentes geometrias de ambos rinones con respecto al detector.

    The sinonasal involvement is one of the most common manifestations in cystic fibrosis. Data show a high incidence of chronic rhino sinusitis in these patients. Although it has been found radiographic opacification of the sinus in more than 90% of cases, few are symptomatic. So that, it is difficult to recognize nasossinusal disease in patients with cystic fibrosis. Questionnaire, nasal endoscopy and CT-scan are very important methods in this approach. Aim: to evaluate the diagnosis of chronic rhino sinusitis in patients with cystic fibrosis by anamnesis, nasal endoscopy and CT-scan and compare those results.Study Design: Clinical prospective. Material and method: evaluation of 34 patients - older than 6 years and with a confirmed diagnoses of cystic fibrosis - by anamnesis (questionnaire), nasal endoscopy (score Lund-Kennedy) and CT-scan (score Lund-Mackay). Results: chronic rhino sinusitis was confirmed in: 20,58% of cases by the questionnaire, 73,52% of the cases by the nasal endoscopy and in 93,54% of the cases by the CT-scan. The results showed significant differences. The correlation between nasal endoscopy score (Lund-Kennedy score) and CT-scan score (Lund-Mackay score) was statistically significant. Conclusion: the diagnosis of chronic rhino sinusitis was statistically different between the three methods. It was higher in imaging analysis and lower in questionnaire. The nasal endoscopy is an excellent method to evaluate nasossinusal disease in cystic fibrosis. (author)

    Full Text Available The current need of strategies related to the use of tree species in family units of production is a result of various legal, historical, ecological, social and economical aspects. Among them we have the legal obligation of forest recovery in these units, the socio-economic benefits and ecological importance of the forest component in agroecosystems, and the need for upgrading the use of native species in tropical regions. Given this, the present work aims at describing and analyzing the selection of native tree species from the grant given by the use of illustrated charts in participatory planning of agroforestry systems, which were carried out with groups of farming families with agroecological production. For the preparation of charts, a bibliographical survey was made, which was systematized in a database built on this work, leading to the selection of 72 species, included in 33 botanical families, considered with potential for use in agroforestry systems and occurring in the territory of Cantuquiriguaçu/PR and surroundings. In the charts, the information about potential use, ecological characteristics, succession group, among other attributes, are included, exhibited didactically to farmers. In the context of use of chips, these were presented during the 13 planning agroforestry systems made with four ecological groups of Núcleo Luta Camponesa of Rede Ecovida de Agroecologia, which is inserted into the Cantuquiriguaçu/PR. Among the total of 77 species listed during the planning to compose the agroforestry systems, 57 are native tree species and, of these, 54 are included in the illustrated charts. From the objectives initially expected, it was found that the charts served with the purpose of encouraging the use of native species in the agroforestry systems planned, working as a historical memory of farmers. However, its use had limitations due to the volume of records and information, so it was suggested the joint with methodological tools to facilitate understanding or the pre-selection of the chips before the meetings.

    Full Text Available The article aimed to analyze the extent of participation in planning, based on empirical study of building up the Master Plan (MP of the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ. The search performs a qualitative analysis, under interpretative approach of bibliographical sources data, documentary and oral sources field research and observation. The initial assumption of the research was that, the edification of MP of an University, which intends to be participatory, that the building of PD within a university, which has to be participatory, should involve the various segments of the academic community and social agents of the campus environment in decision-making, starting with the dissemination and easy access to information as a basis for the construction of this instrument. The experience of the Brazilian universities suggests that the MPs of public universities in Brazil have presented important advances for the planning and management of the territories. On the other hand, UFRRJ on building your MP contradicts the sense of participation that prints in the study, indicating that there is no democratization of decision-making processes. Therefore, the research highlights the conflicting relationship between planning and participation detected in the study, beckons a historic difficulty and policy of our country to articulate social participation in planning and that this difficulty is still reflected strongly in a unique experience of a Brazilian high educational public institution.

    The Brazilian environmental law requires oil companies' commitment to implement environmental programs, among which the environmental education project. This type of project should be understood by the companies as an opportunity for the development of socio environmental responsibility policies towards the affected populations. In order for the environmental education project to be effective as a means of awareness and social transformation, it is required to increase public's participation from the process of knowledge creation on the communities environmental problems to the disclose of the produced contents. This work refers to the use of the audiovisual as an instrument for the mobilization and consciousness for the construction of participative diagnostics, from the experience of the Environmental Education Project of the Polvo field, accomplished in ten municipal districts of the Campos Basin region. Inspired on an original methodology, the project promoted environmental cinema workshops that resulted in 30 documentaries directed by the local population and 10 environmental forums in which were developed local audiovisual environmental agendas.

    An electronic time-to-pulse height converter is described which uses a multiplicative method instead of the usual one of adding overlapping pulses. This is achieved by a coincidence of a linear sawtooth and a sharply clipped needle-pulse. The sawtooth is fed to the grid of a beam-deflecting tube (E80T) and the needle-pulse is applied to the deflecting plates and opens the tube only during a time-interval of about 5.10{sup -9} s. The plate gets a charge proportional to the time-difference between the start of the sawtooth and the needle pulse. The plate-pulse is stretched and amplified and its height represents a measurement of the time-difference. With this method we got a time resolution of 2{tau} = 7 x 10{sup -12}s with artificial pulses, 2{tau} = 3 x 10{sup -10}s with Co{sup 60} {gamma}-coincidences by using NE 102 plastic crystals and 2{tau} = 1.4 x 10{sup -9} s with 511-keV {gamma}-coincidences using NaI(Te) crystals. The method was also used with pulsed beam techniques. In this case we got from the pulsing RF an 8-Mc, sharply-peaked pulse-sequence, which was fed to the E80T plates. We had a time-resolution of 2{tau} = 1.1 x 10{sup -9} s with 4-MeV neutrons using plastic crystals 0.7 in long. Normally the region of linear response was 30 ns but it was possible to go up to 120 ns. (author) [French] L'auteur decrit un convertisseur electronique temps en amplitude d'impulsions fonctionnant d'apres une methode de multiplication au lieu de la methode habituelle qui consiste a ajouter des impulsions qui se chevauchent. On fait coincider une impulsion lineaire en dents de scie avec une impulsion en forme d'aiguille fortement ecretee. L'impulsion en dents de scie est envoyee sur la grille d'un tube a faisceaux electroniques diriges (E80T) ; et l'impulsion en forme d'aiguille est appliquee aux plaques de deflexion et n'ouvre le tube que pendant un intervalle de temps d'environ 5 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s. La plaque recoit une charge proportionnelle a la difference de temps entre le demarrage de chacune des deux impulsions. L'impulsion de la plaque est etalee et amplifiee; son amplitude represente la mesure de la difference de temps. Avec cette methode l'auteur a obtenu un temps de resolution de 2{tau} = 7 {center_dot} 10{sup -12} s avec des impulsions artificielles de 2{tau} = 3 {center_dot} 10{sup -10} s, avec des coincidences gamma du {sup 60}Co, en utilisant des cristaux en plastique NE 102, et de 2{tau} = 1,4 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s avec des coincidences gamma de 511 keV, en utilisant des cristaux de Nal (Te). Cette methode a ete egalement utilisee avec des faisceaux puises. Dans ce cas l'auteur a obtenu, a partir de la radiofrequence de pulsation, une suite d'impulsions de 8 Mc en pointes aigues, qui ont ete envoyees sur les plaques E80T. Le temps de resolution a ete de 2{tau} = 1,1 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s avec des neutrons de 4 MeV, en utilisant des cristaux de plastique de 36 mm de long. Normalement la reponse lineaire se situe dans une region de 30 ns mais il est possible qu'elle atteigne 120 ns. (author) [Spanish] En la memoria se describe un convertidor electronico tiempo-altura de impulsos, en el que se aplica un metodo de multiplicacion, en vez del metodo habitual de suma de impulsos que se superponen. Esto se logra haciendo coincidir dos impulsos, uno lineal en diente de sierra y uno muy aguzado. El impulso en diente de sierra se transmite a la rejilla de una valvula de haz dirigido (E80T) y el impulso aguzado se aplica a las placas deflectoras, abriendo la valvula solo durante un intervalo de unos 5 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s. La placa recibe una carga proporcional al periodo entre el comienzo del impulso en diente de sierra y el impulso aguzado. El impulso de la placa es alargado y amplificado y su altura representa una medicion de la diferencia de tiempos. Con este metodo se han obtenido tiempos de resolucion de 2{tau} = 7 {center_dot} 10{sup -12} s con impulsos artificiales, de 2{tau} = 3 {center_dot} 10{sup -10} s con coincidencias gamma obtenidas de una fuente de {sup 60}Co y utilizando cristales plasticos NE 102, y de 2{tau} = 1,4 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} con coincidencias gamma de 511 KeV y utilizando cristales de Nal (Te). El metodo se utilizo tambien aplicando tecnicas de haces pulsantes. En la experiencia realizada se obtuvo, a partir de una radiofrecuencia pulsadora, una sucesion de impulsos muy aguzados, con una frecuencia de 8 MHz, que se transmitio a las placas de la valvula E80T. Se obtuvo un tiempo de resolucion de 2{tau} = 1,1 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s con neutrones de 4 MeV, utilizando cristales plasticos de 0,7 pulgadas de largo. Normalmente la region de respuesta lineal fue de 30 ns (30 {center_dot} 10{sup -9} s), pero se consiguio aumentarla hasta 120 ns.

    confused with aortic dissection. The imaging techniques (TEE, CT, MRI) have an important role in the final diagnosis of aortic hematoma. Presently Helical CT and MR angiography are the main tools in the early diagnosis of this condition before the development of complications. In this experience helical CT, before and after the administration of contrast material, was accurate in identifying the hematoma localization and extension. [Italian] Tale studio ha lo scopo di valutare con tecnica TC spirale gli aspetti semeiologici dell'ematoma intramurale dell'aorta e sottolineare il ruolo diagnostico decisivo di tale metodica nello studio di pazienti con quadro clinico acuto sospetto per dissezione aortica. E' stato condotto uno studio retrospettivo (dal 1995 al 1999) sulle immagini di 396 pazienti che avevano eseguito un esame TC in regime d'urgenza per sospetta dissezione aortica. Solo 18 pazienti (6 femmine, 12 maschi) presentavano aspetti tomodensitometrici caratteristici per ematoma intramurale aortico. Gli esami sono stati condotti tutti con TC spirale utilizzando i seguenti parametri: spessore dello strato 10 mm, image index 10, passo della spirale 1,5 mm, algoritmo standard con un minimo di 130 kV e 125 mA. Gli esami sono stati condotti prima e dopo iniezione di 130 ml di mdc in bolo rapido e ricercando i seguenti parametri: sede ed estensione longitudinale dell'ematoma spessore e densita' della parte aortica, presenza e localizzazione delle caclificazioni intimali, regolarita' del lume vero, presenza di emomediastino e/o emotorace. In tutti i 18 pazienti (8 di tipo A e 10 di tipo B) e' stato osservato ispessimento circoscritto parietale tipicamente iperdenso nelle scansioni di base e ipodenso in quelle dopo mdc. In 14/18 pazienti l'ispessimento assumeva disposizione eccentrica, in solo 4/18 era concentrico; in tutti i casi l'ispessimento e' risultato maggiore di 4 mm. In 18/18 pazienti sono state riscontrate

(author) [Spanish] La memoria expone los resultados obtenidos por un metodo de marcacion con bromos 82 de tres sustancias organicas de particular interes en el diagnostico y en las investigaciones biologicas: sueroalbumina humana, fibrinogeno e insulina. El metodo consiste en una bromuracion electrolitica en solucion acuosa, que se efectua en una celda cuya zona anodica contiene la sustancia a marcar y esta separada de la zona catodica por une membrana diali- zadora. En cada uno de los tres casos, se ha estudiado el rendimiento de la bromuracion con corriente de intensidad constante (100, 200, 300 * 10{sup -6} A) en funcion del potencial anodico, en soluciones 10{sup -3} y 10{sup -4} molares de NH{sub 4}Br, controlando por radioelectroforesis la cantidad de producto marcado con bromo que se forma para diversos valores del potencial anodico a intervalos de 50 mV. En el caso de la albumina y del fibrinogeno, se ha comprobado por inmuno-electroforesis que la desnaturalizacion de estas proteinas comienza solamente a partir de valores de potencial anodico para los que el rendimiento de la marcacion es ya muy elevado en relacion con los metodos de marcacion por via quimica. Este procedimiento presenta la ventaja de ser muy rapido y de poder llevarse a cabo por mando a distancia en un recinto blindado.

    INGEOMINAS carried out this project in the cities of Cartagena, Bucaramanga, Cali and Bogota, in two phases: Phase 1 (Diagnostic) and Phase II (Formulation of Handling Plan). The phase 1 that here is described, it upgrades the knowledge of the extractive industry of the construction materials for the city of Cartagena, through bibliographical revision and field work, carried out in 50 quarries that supply from these materials to the city. This study, besides the economic and legal handling, identifies technical aspects related with the geology, the mining and the environmental situation. In accordance with their likeness, geologic, morphological and of exploitation (extraction methods and mining development), the quarries met in five groups: Exploitations on calcareous deposits of the La Popa Formation, exploitations on clay deposits of the La Popa Formation, exploitations on detritus deposits of half grain to thick (La Popa-Arenosa Formation; Pendales Conglomerate and Rotinet Formation) and exploitation of calcareous of the Arroyo de Piedra Formation. The extraction of these materials is characterized by its low degree of development technician, lack of planning mining, lack of appropriate infrastructure that allows a better development of the sector, is also evident the control lack on the part of the entities in charge of the handling of this industry. These factors added to a demand every time in increase of these materials, they have taken to a progressive deterioration in the landscape, increase of the noise and particles in the air and in the waters. The low control in this activity has generated the proliferation of informal exploitations that they find in this activity a way of subsistence.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A dismorfia muscular (DISMUS é uma síndrome psiquiátrica que acomete indivíduos de ambos os sexos com maior prevalência entre os homens, na qual o indivíduo percebe seu corpo como pequeno e franzino, quando na verdade é forte e musculoso. Inexistem na literatura abordagens antropométricas sobre DISMUS. OBJETIVO: Obter dados em uma população de referência para sugerir um critério antropométrico para diagnóstico da DISMUS. MÉTODOS: A amostra foi composta de 1.825 indivíduos que participaram de uma avaliação médico-funcional (1.108 homens e 717 mulheres entre os anos de 1994 e 2003, com idade superior ou igual a 15 anos, não atletas e que não apresentavam deficiência física locomotora significativa nem diagnóstico clínico de DISMUS. Foram calculados individualmente dois índices de proporcionalidade adimensionais, B/P1 e B/P2, com e sem correção pela medida de espessura de dobra cutânea, respectivamente. Estabeleceu-se como critério antropométrico para DISMUS a presença de uma razão superior a um entre os perímetros de braço contraído e flexionado e de perna associado à inexistência de três outros pontos de corte das variáveis ectomorfia, åDC (somatório das medidas de espessura das dobras cutâneas tricipital e perna medial e perímetro abdominal, esses últimos visando excluir indivíduos com valores de B/P1 e B/P2 elevados primariamente devido ao excesso de gordura corporal. RESULTADOS: Razão B/P1 > 1 foi observada em 16 indivíduos, oito em cada gênero. Analisando os outros pontos de corte, todas as mulheres puderam ser identificadas como obesas e, portanto, não portadoras de DISMUS, enquanto nos homens, sete dos oito indivíduos puderam ser enquadrados como casos sugestivos de DISMUS. CONCLUSÕES: Com base na amostra ampla e heterogênea utilizada no presente estudo, é possível sugerir um critério antropométrico como sinal de DISMUS. Outros estudos estão sendo conduzidos para validar o critério antropométrico de DISMUS proposto no presente estudo e determinar a sensibilidade e a especificidade utilizando amostras propositadamente escolhidas por sua alta prevalência de DISMUS.INTRODUCIÓN: La dismorfia muscular (DISMUS es un síndrome siquiátrico que ataca a individuos de ambos sexos con mayor prevalencia entre los hombres, donde cada individuo reconoce su cuerpo como pequeño y frágil cuando en verdad es fuerte y musculoso.

There are no anthropometric approaches in literature about DYSMUS. OBJECTIVE: To obtain data from a reference population in order to suggest an anthropometric criterion for the diagnosis of DYSMUS. METHODS: The sample was composed of 1,825 individuals who participated in a medical-functional evaluation (1,108 men and 717 women between years of 1994 and 2003, with ages higher or equal to 15 years, non-athletes and not presenting significant locomotive physical disorders or clinical diagnosis of DYSMUS. Two non-dimensional proportionality indexes B/P1 and B/P2 were individually calculated with and without correction through the measure of the skinfold thickness, respectively. The presence of a ratio above 1 between the contracted and inflected arm and leg perimeters associated to the inexistence of three other cut-off points of ectomorphy, åSKF (sum of measures of triceps and medial leg skinfold thickness and abdominal perimeter variables; these last ones with the purpose of excluding individuals with high B/P1 and B/P2 values primarily due to the excess of body fat. RESULTS: The ratio B/P1 > 1 was observed in 16 individuals, eight from each gender. Analyzing the other cut-off points, all women could be identified as obese and, therefore, not carrier of DYSMUS, while among men, seven out of eight individuals could be classified as suggestive DYSMUS cases. CONCLUSIONS: Based on the wide and heterogeneous sample used in this study, it is possible to suggest an anthropometric criterion to identify DYSMUS. Other studies are being conducted in order to validate the DYSMUS anthropometric criterion proposed in the present study and to determine the sensibility and specificity used in samples willfully selected due to their high prevalence of DYSMUS.

    The thesis work develops a methodology to determine when it is convenient, technically and economically to provide maintenance to a thermal electric unit and the type of maintenance to be performed, all this sustained in an economic analysis taking into account the variation of the production costs, of the interest rates, of the fuel prices and of the electric energy prices, the maintenance costs and the degradation of the unit in the time. Once analyzed the previous matters a thermo-economic test model and reference (values provided by the manufacturer) is performed and they are compared to determine in what equipment or system of the process of electric energy generation is required to focus on the material resources as well as on the human resources, in order to obtain the best results from the maintenance and recover the greatest possible efficiency of the unit. [Spanish] El trabajo de tesis desarrolla una metodologia para determinar cuando conviene, tecnica y economicamente proporcionar mantenimiento a una unidad termica y el tiempo de mantenimiento a realizar, todo esto sustentado en un analisis economico tomando en cuenta la variacion de los costos de produccion de las tasas de interes, de los precios del combustible y de la energia electrica, el costo de mantenimiento y la degradacion de la unidad en el tiempo. Una vez analizado lo anterior se realiza un modelo termoeconomico de prueba y referencia (valores proporcionados por el fabricante) y se comparan para determinar en que equipos o sistema del proceso de generacion de energia electrica se requiere enfocar tanto los recursos materiales como humanos, con el fin de obtener mejores resultados del mantenimiento y recuperar lo mayor posible la eficiencia de la unidad.

    This work shows the steps for implementing a program of rational use of electricity in a pine sawmill processing through energy diagnosis and also provide an energy efficiency index, the reference consumption in Kw.h power and volume of timber in cubic meters. The study was conducted in a sawmill located at Itapeva, southwest of Sao Paulo. The region's economic potential is based on the processing of wood with the main export destination. Much of the lumber does not have advanced technology, because it may present with excessive spending power. The species used are Pinus elliottii and Pinus taeda. We collected data on the electrical installation of the mill and the main parts of the installation as tables and distribution lines and equipment engines were studied. The diagnostic results show that while the industry had a good general appearance, electrical installations and equipment using electric power for its functioning need more care, both in maintenance and in use. An energy efficiency program, if effected, could reduce the cost of the process and provides environmental benefits by less need for electric power generation. (author)

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the methods for establishing dental caries diagnosis that make use of Laser light as source of illumination, establishing the 'state of the art'. Experimental observation of the differences among fluorescence of sound, demineralized and carious enamel by visible luminescent spectroscopy was also done. Six human teeth, extracted for clinical reasons were studied, and the results showed that the spectrum of carious enamel is different from the sound and demineralized ones. The differences are more evident relative to sond enamel and carious enamel, the same occurring between demineralized and carious enamel. The review of the literature aimed to make comparative considerations between QLF, LF and DELF; their effectiveness relative to traditional methods such as visual, visual with probe, radiography. It was verified that DELF was more sensitive, but could not discriminate between different degrees of mineral loss. QLF, compared to DIAGNOdent has the same sensitivity, but it is better for scientific purposes. The experimental part of the present study used on argon ion Laser to illuminated the teeth and signs of emission of fluorescence were captured by a PMT and then analyzed by a computer system with EG and G software. The results showed that the spectrum of carious enamel is different from the sound and demineralized. The differences are more evident in relation to sound and carious enamel, the same occurs between demineralized and carious enamel. (author)

    Radiopharmaceuticals of third generation by its design that includes peptides capable of selectively directing the radiation to a specific molecular target are useful in molecular medicine for obtaining molecular images that allow recording in vivo phenomena temporal-space of molecular or cellular processes, with diagnostic or therapeutic applications. Generally, peptides that recognize cellular receptors that are over-expressed in cancer cells of interest are used; such is the case of RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartic acid) a tri-peptide sequence which recognizes to the membrane receptors α(v)β(3) and α(v)β(5) that are involved in metastasis and angiogenic processes as well as in tumor cells of breast glioma. The high affinity and selectivity of RGD peptide with integrin s α(v)β(3) and α(v)β(5) is the basis for designing radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic of breast cancer and the metastasis and angiogenic processes. In this paper a useful lyophilized formulation was development for obtaining {sup 68}Ga-DOTA-E-[c(RGDfK)]{sub 2} radiopharmaceutical that for its effectiveness, stability and security can be used in humans. The production process of core-equipment DOTA-E-[c(RGDfK]{sub 2}/Buffer sodium acetate 1.0 M was optimized, and the formulation was transferred to the radiopharmaceuticals production plant of the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ). The optimized formulation of the core-equipment for the {sup 68}Ga-DOTA-E-[c(RGDfK)]{sub 2} radiopharmaceutical preparation is: DOTA-E-[c(RGDfK)]{sub 2} peptide - 75 μg; Mannitol - 50 mg; Sodium acetate - 14 mg; Sodium acetate buffer 1.0 M ph 4.3 - 0.5 m L. The production process was validated and stability studies were carried out to the validation batches in compliance with the validation master plan of the ININ and in adherence to compliance of the applicable national and international regulations. Also the legal dossier was drawn up in order to make the application of sanitary registration before Comision Federal para la Proteccion contra Riesgos Sanitarios (COFEPRIS). (Author)

    To determine the efficiency of an early diagnosis programme using ultrasounds (US) of development dysplasia of the hip (DDH), using different criteria to delect patients according to the sex: universal to girls, but only including boys with a DDH risk factor (a physical pathological examination of new born babies, babies born feet first, family history and orthopaedic deformities). Of the 3,469 children born at our hospital during one specific year, 1,721 were included in the programme. US was carried out on all of them, following the Graf technique, when they were a month old, with the exception of the new born babies who were studied during their first week by means of a physical pathological examination. The babies who were diagnosed with physically immature hips in this first study using US; were followed up. Thirty-two babies born during the year suffered from DDH (a rate of 9.2 per thousand). Among them there was only 1 case of delayed DDH (that was not detected in the programme). Seven babies were diagnosed with DDH thanks to the follow up procedures carried out on babies with physically immature hips. Putting this programme for early diagnosis into practices has achieved the almost total disappearance of delayed DDH. When comparing the results with previous periods, where different early detection systems were used, the duration and the aggressiveness of the treatment has reduced considerably. Follow up procedures using US of physically immature hips is obligatory. (Author) 14 refs.

    Computed tomography (CT) is an important method of diagnostic imaging has been widely used around the world. However, this important diagnostic tool has led to a considerable increase in the frequency of examinations, often without proper clinical justification. Consequently, CT is one of the diagnostic procedures that contributes most to the collective dose. Scientific studies show that the concern in pediatric procedures should be even higher. Despite the fact that these patients have a higher radiosensitivity and a higher life expectancy, the protocols of the examinations are not optimized and adult protocols are applied. Moreover, a recent study performed in the United States showed that one third of the examinations was not justified. The aim of this study was to conduct a pilot study of dose indicators in pediatric CT in four hospitals, in order to verify the feasibility of the diagnostic reference levels establishment for the county of Rio de Janeiro. The dose descriptors were estimated from the beam dosimetry by applying the protocols used in each examination. The total patient sample included 358 children of different age groups. The results observed in examinations of whole trunk (routine chest, upper abdomen and pelvis) and upper abdomen in Institution A, for patients aged 5-10 years, indicated that the mAs values used were not properly selected for patients' body mass index, presenting however, conformity with UK reference levels. In the case of head CT scans and routine chest CT scans in Institution B, although patients aged 5-10 years have shown conformity with UK reference levels, the kV and mAs values used, in some examinations, were also inappropriate for the patient characteristics. Similar result was observed in examinations of head and high resolution chest for patients neonates, in Institution D. For head and routine chest examinations of 1-5 years' age group, was Institution B that showed the lowest DLP values. This result was due to the lowest CTDlyol values found therein. Comparisons of DLP values among institutions, for each age group in each kind of examination, also allowed observe a mean difference of 2248% in the Institution A's values in relation to the Institution D's values, for high resolution chest examinations of the 5-10 years age group. These results indicate that few efforts are being devoted to radiation protection in pediatric computed tomography, there is a high potential for optimization and that to establish tomographic good practices is essential the determination of diagnostic reference levels.

    This paper presents an evaluation of tissues and organs absorbed doses as well as the effective dose resulting from PET-CT scans performed with {sup 18}F-FDG radiopharmaceutical for lung cancer diagnosis in whole body scans. The ICRP-106 biokinetic model was used to estimate the absorbed and effective doses from the radiopharmaceutical for both male and female patient according to the characteristics of anthropomorphic Alderson Rando® simulators. Computer Tomography doses were evaluated using thermoluminescent detectors inserted in the same anthropomorphic simulators. Optimization protocols for image acquisition and the use of automatic exposure control were used in order to reduce patient doses, taking into account the equipment model and its system. The effective dose in female patients was 5.8 mSv. The effective dose in male patients was 8.4 mSv. The dose values estimated for the {sup 18}F-FDG PET-CT scan are below the values described in the literature. This is because the CT was not used for diagnostic but for morphological mapping.

    Recent advances in pharmacology, diagnostic and invasive procedures provide a series of modalities that diminish the morbidity and increase the long term survival in the patients that have suffered a heart attack to myocardium. The stratification by risk is an essential element for the handling of the survivors of heart attack to myocardium. In their attention it is looked for to optimize the therapeutic benefit, to diminish the unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and to improve the efficiency. For example, a coronariography in sick with heart attack to myocardium it is not cost-effective if not is clinically suitable. Of there that from the institutional point of view, this is, of the Mexican Institute of the Public Health, they are required of appropriate reference approaches and counter reference to grant to the sick person, the best service that is the one in this case the diagnostic and the handling of the ischemic cardiopathy with the smallest waste of resources. The estimation of the annual survival is the base of the stratification, it constitutes the angular stone of the early handling of the heart attack to myocardium. The goal for the clinical would be to identify patients with intermediate risk, since, this risk makes them candidates to therapy interventionist. As long as those with low risk won't require intervention. This would allow the decrease of rates by revenues of heart attack to myocardium, and therefore to diminish the hospital staying rates. The Nuclear Cardiology (myocardial gammagraphy) it is not the only invasive method available to evaluate the myocardial perfusion in sick in who coronary illness is suspected. When the myocardial gammagraphy is carried out in appropriate population, the cost it diminishes because it restricts the necessity of additional invasive evaluations. This because the nuclear cardiology has predictive value so much for the mortality like to detect myocardial viability. Based on these probabilities, the doctor it could recommend diagnostic tests more sensitive and by this more cost-effective. The goal of this study was to design a model that compared cost-effectiveness of the gammagraphy in the diagnosis of the coronary illness by means of computed tomography by emission of simple protons (SPECT).

    The present study aimed to develop a radiopharmaceutical consisting of an emitter positrons radionuclide ({sup 68}Ga) which is used in imaging by positron emission tomography; and a peptide capable of binding to somatostatin receptors subtypes 2, 3 and 5; which together serve as a diagnostic support of tumors of neuroendocrine origin. The peptide characterization DOTA-1-Naphthylalanine{sup 3}-Octreotide (DOTA-NOC) by infrared spectroscopy technique by Fourier transform was performed, in which the principal functional groups belonging to this molecule were identified as well as its identification by UV-Vis spectroscopy. Subsequently, a variance analysis taking into account three different levels of amounts of sodium acetate, and three different levels of amounts of the peptide was performed. These masses were subjected to lyophilization for a period of 21 h; after completion of lyophilization, were labeled with 2 m L of {sup 68}GaCl{sub 3} eluates of a {sup 68}Ge/{sup 68}Ga ITG generator to determine the percentage of radiochemical purity of the different formulations. It was observed that the ideal formulation must contain 75 μg of peptide and 14 mg of NaOAc, according to studies, was determined that the amount of peptide does not influence the response of radiochemical purity in the same way that the amount of added sodium acetate, which produces different effects on the dependent variable. Finally the radiopharmaceutical formulation was obtained with greater than 95% of radiochemical purity. The validation of the analytical method was performed describing the system accuracy and linearity, specificity and accuracy; linearity and precision of the method, taking into account acceptance criteria based on the guidance of validation of analytical methods published by the National Association of Pharmacists Chemical Biologists of Mexico, A. C.; the parameters evaluated met the specifications given by the guide validation of analytical methods. Uptake and internalization tests of the radiopharmaceutical in AR42J cells were performed, obtaining significant differences in both tests, indicating affinity of the radiopharmaceutical by cells, because they exhibit over expression of SST R2 and 5 receptors. The report of the validation of the production process of the formulation was issued based on the established of the NOM-241-SSA1-2012. (Author)

    Objective: to determine the usefulness of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in the diagnoses of bile duct injuries following cholecystectomy. Material and method: MRCP was retrospectively evaluated in 40 patients with suspected bile duct injury after laparoscopic or conventional cholecystectomy. Eight of these patients had been submitted to biliary reconstruction. All patients were symptomatic (jaundice, fever and chills, weight loss and abdominal pain). The scans were independently reviewed by two radiologists. The results were confirmed by surgery, percutaneous drainage, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and clinical follow-up. The level and severity of bile duct injury were rated according to the Bismuth classification. Results: in a total of 40 symptomatic patients, 10 (25%) had normal findings on MRCP; Postoperative complications were seen in 29 (72.5%) patients, seven of them with more than one finding. Pancreatic head neoplasia was diagnoses in one patient. The most frequent finding was sclerosing (41.4%) followed by biliary duct stenosis (34.5%), residual or recurrent biliary stones (31.0%) and fluid collections (17.2%). The images obtained by MRCP were considered of good quality. Conclusion: MRCP is an effective method for the evaluation of patients with suspected postcholecystectomy biliary tract complications.

    Diagnostic radiology is the main contributor to the man-made exposure of general population. Since Quality Assurance (QA) programs ensure high quality diagnostic images with the lowest possible radiation dose to the patient, it has been recommended that all introduce QA programs for their radiological facilities. Consequently it is important to check the adequacy of equipment operating parameters in diagnostic radiography facilities, to ensure that a high quality of service is delivered. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the operating conditions of diagnostic units installed in Recife, Pernambuco. The study included 31 X-ray units from both public and private diagnostic services. The following parameters were evaluated: coincidence between the luminous and radiation fields; alignment of the radiation beam; agreement between the real and preset values of kVp and exposure time; filtration; half value lower (HVL); luminance of the view box; uniformity of the luminance; illuminance of the environment. The results showed that 20% of the equipment surveyed exhibited discrepancies between the luminous and radiation fields greater than 2% of the source to skin distance. The test of kilovoltage showed that 48% of the units do not fulfill the acceptability criteria, presenting discrepancies higher than {+-} 10% between the measured and preset values. The results of the accuracy of the timer indicated that 81% of the equipment surveyed present a discrepancy greater than {+-} 10% between the time selected in the control panel and actual exposure time.The test of the filtration shown that, in 20% of the equipment, this was inferior to 2,5 mm Al. The test of the luminance of view box shown that 96% of the equipment, shown a luminance lower of 2.000 cd/m{sup 2}. Related to the test of the uniformity of the luminance, 81 % of the equipment shown a variation of the uniformity higher then 10%. The test of the iluminancy of the environment shown that 61 % of the equipment presented on iluminancy level out of the gap between 50 and 100 lux. The results of this survey showed that a high percentage of the equipment surveyed demonstrated inadequate operating conditions, reinforcing the need to implement quality control protocols in conventional x-ray units located in Recife.

    The labeling of Ixolaris with {sup 99m}Tc was developed by Barboza et.al. (2013) aiming its use primarily in glioblastoma and after in melanoma diagnosis, a less common but very aggressive cancer and with high mortality rate. Preliminary tests on animals have proven its effectiveness of labeling but a dosimetric study to human clinical trials should be performed. This study aimed to: (1) determine the biokinetic model for the radiotracer {sup 99m}Tc-Ixolaris in mice by imaging dosimetry method; and (2) estimate the absorbed and effective dose resulting from the use of a new radiopharmaceutical for melanoma and metastases diagnosis in human beings, since a dosimetric study of new radiopharmaceuticals in animals is necessary to test them subsequently in humans and apply for registration in ANVISA. According to SPECT images, was found a latency period of 15 to 21 days for the development of lung metastasis in mice. Three C57BL6 mice, one control animal, and two animals with induced cell line B16-F10 murine melanoma were tested. The {sup 99m}Tc-Ixolaris radiopharmaceutical was administered intravenously in a caudal vein, and SPECT images were acquired 0.5 h, 1.5 h, 2.5 h, 3.5 h and 24 h post-administration for analysis and biodistribution quantification. The biokinetic model was determined and thus, obtained cumulative activity in order to estimate the absorbed dose in each organ. The mass and metabolic differences between mice and humans were considered and used to extrapolate the data acquired at different scales. Based on dose factors provided by the software MIRDOSE and Olinda (S factor), absorbed doses in irradiated target organs were calculated for the source organs, and finally the effective dose was estimated. The results indicate that for diagnostic exams conducted in human melanoma patients by administering approximately 25.7 MBq the estimated effective dose was 4.3 mSv. Comparing with effective doses obtained in other diagnostic techniques with {sup 99m}Tc, a range of effective doses from 0.6 to 4.8 mSv, it was concluded that the procedure should proceed continue into a Clinical Phase in humans.

    The question of components reliability, specifically process control valves, has become an important issue to be investigated in nuclear power plants and other areas such as refinery or offshore oil rig, considering the safety and life extension of the plant. The development of non intrusive monitoring and diagnostic method allows the identification of defects in components of the plant during normal operation. The objective of this dissertation is to present an analysis and diagnosis of control valves of a steam plant part that simulates the secondary circuit of a pressurized water reactor. This installation is part of propulsion equipment testing laboratory of the Brazilian Navy, at Ipero-SP. The methodology for design is based on graphical analysis of two parameters, the valve air pressure actuator and the displacement of the valve plug. These data are extracted by a smart positioner, part of Delta V™ Automation System. An analysis is implemented in detecting anomalies by an approach using Expert Systems by the technique of fuzzy logic. Once the basic measures of control valves are taken, it is possible to detect symptoms of failure, leakage, friction, damage, etc. The monitoring and diagnostic system has been designed in MATLAB® version 2009{sup th} by the complement 'Fuzzy Logic Toolbox'. It is a noninvasive technique. Thus, it is possible to know what is happening with the chosen components, just analyzing the parameters of the valve. The software called ValveLink® (developed by Emerson) receives signals from hardware component (intelligent positioner) installed next to the control valve. These signals (electrical current) are transformed into information which are used input parameters: air pressure valve actuator and valve plug displacement. With the use of fuzzy logic, these parameters are interpreted. They suffer inferences by rules written by experts in valves. After these inferences, the information is processed and sent as output signals. These signals lead to diagnostic information of the state of the valve. (author)
