The pitfalls in ultrasound evaluation of rotator cuff pathologies on shoulder include those related to anisotropy, calcific tendinitis complex anatomy in the region of the rotator interval and tendinous interdigitation.
9 Pioneer work on tooth sizes was conducted by Dr Wayne Bolton in 1958, he believed that an optimal occlusion and the achievement of proper occlusal interdigitation in the finishing stages of orthodontic treatment are not possible without the correct maxillary and mandibular mesiodistal tooth size relationship.
The key distinction between chamid and rudist fibrillar prisms and those different types found in pteriomorph bivalves lies in their low organic content and the unconstrained interdigitation of their margins, rather than tight restriction to straight-sided polygonal "cells" with substantial organic envelopes.
The structure is based on partly interdigitation of two quarter wavelength separated patches through a set of fingers for achieving the required space diversity.
Since the PET efficiency is sensitive to the slight distance change, the adsorbed alkanes at the D-A interface are expected to be able to fractionally interrupt the original interfacial interdigitation, leading to an overall distance increase, which weakens the PET and, thus, decreases the electrical conductivity of the D-A composites," Zang said.
