Health risk assessment for the land application of biosolids in Ankara, Turkey : ingestion pathway
Kendir, Ece; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Department of Environmental Engineering (2013)
Biosolids are valuable products which can be beneficially used in land application. However, the possibility of serious health effects on humans due to several pollutants in biosolids creates a big concern. To address this issue, risk-based methodologies are commonly used to evaluate health effects associated with the land application of biosolids. This study aims to investigate the health risks associated with ingestion of biosolids or soil mixed with biosolids by a child. This study is the first health ri...
Medical Thermal Imaging of Electrically Stimulated Woman Breast: a simulation study
Carlak, H. Feza; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; Beşikci, Cengiz (2011-09-03)
Tissues have different electrical conductivity and metabolic energy consumption values depending on their state of health and species. Since metabolic heat generation values show differences from tissue to tissue, thermal imaging has started to play an important role in medical diagnoses. Temperature differences of healthy and cancerous tissue may be changed by means of frequency dependent current stimulation within medical safety limits, and thus, depth dependent imaging performance can be increased. In th...
Health outcomes of road-traffic pollution among exposed roadside workers in Rawalpindi City, Pakistan
Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Rashid, Audil; Yousaf, Balal; Kamal, Atif (2017-01-01)
To document ill-health effects of air pollution on the local inhabitants, we analyzed the self-reported health issues associated with the inhalation of road traffic on daily basis. For this purpose, a revised version of ALS-DLD-78S questionnaire was administered, comprising the personal information and details related to the clinical history of the surveyed population (i.e. n = 580). Five dependent (outcome) variables, including chest pain, redness of eyes, shortness of breath, eye-tearing, and skin-itching...

Data availability is of vital importance for marine research but most of the European data are fragmented, not always validated and not easily accessible. In the 40 countries bordering the European seas, more than 600 scientific laboratories from governmental organizations and private industry collect data by using various sensors on board of research vessels, submarines, fixed and drifting platforms, airplanes and satellites to measure physical, geophysical, geological, biological and chemical parameters, ...
Clinical evidence framework for Bayesian networks
Yet, Barbaros; Tai, Nigel R. M.; Marsh, D. William R. (2017-01-01)
There is poor uptake of prognostic decision support models by clinicians regardless of their accuracy. There is evidence that this results from doubts about the basis of the model as the evidence behind clinical models is often not clear to anyone other than their developers. In this paper, we propose a framework for representing the evidence-base of a Bayesian network (BN) decision support model. The aim of this evidence framework is to be able to present all the clinical evidence alongside the BN itself. ...
