tetralogy of Fal·lot

A congenital malformation of the heart characterized by a defect in the ventricular septum, misplacement of the origin of the aorta, narrowing of the pulmonary artery, and enlargement of the right ventricle.

[After Étienne Fallot (1850-1911), French physician.]

ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.tetralogy of Fallot - a congenital heart defect producing cyanosis; characterized by four symptoms: pulmonary stenosis and ventricular septal defect and malposition of the aorta over both ventricles and hypertrophy of the right ventricle
pulmonary stenosis - abnormal narrowing of the opening into the pulmonary artery from the right ventricle
syndrome - a pattern of symptoms indicative of some disease
congenital heart defect - a birth defect involving the heart
ventricular septal defect - a common congenital heart defect; an abnormal opening in the septum dividing the ventricles allows blood to pass directly from the left to the right ventricle; large openings may cause congestive heart failure

For 3D depth sensing, three approaches have been considered in consumer applications: active stereo vision (AS), structured light (SL) and Time-Of-Flight (ToF) sensing.
Previously, a report speculated that Apple might introduce VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser) ToF sensors on the rear of the 2020 iPhone models.
"We predict that three new 2H20 iPhone models will all be equipped with front Face ID, and two of the new models will provide rear ToF," Kuo said in the note.
Now the mode was changed to TOF. Intubation was done with cuffed flexometallic endotracheal tube of appropriate size when there was no response to train -of-four stimuli.
Medical imaging company United Imaging Healthcare (UIH) said on Wednesday that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared its next generation imaging platform, uPMR 790 HD TOF PET/MR.
Vivo's TOF 3D Sensing Technology has been touted by tech experts as the future of face unlocking.
"From last year's debut of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, the recent launch of the truly bezel-less Vivo NEX, to our ground-breaking TOF 3D Sensing technology, we continue to forge ahead and evolve towards the truly intelligent future by opening new ways for the AI to help the consumer," said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo.
Although there are a number of integrated ToF sensor components and technologies available, at a very high level, all rely on the fact that light travels at a known velocity (c = 299,792,458 meters/sec).
ToF technology is divided into pulsed ToF and continuous wave (CW) measurement [2, 3].
