Exercise tests allow evaluating athletic capacity and fitness, following training-induced adaptations and determining causes of poor performance. A retrospective study was conducted over the cases of 40 poor performing Standardbreds referred to an Equine Sports Medicine consultation at a Belgian racetrack. The study aimed at determining if the implementation of a standardised exercise test and determination of specific athletic parameters could discriminate between the poor performers and a group of eight healthy racehorses and help in establishing a diagnosis. After a through clinical examination, the horses were submitted to an exercise test that consisted of 3 bouts of 1500m at increasing speeds with a recovery phase of 500 m in between. Speed and heart rate were continuously monitored and blood lactate concentrations were evaluated after each step. Pre and post-effort blood work and respiratory endoscopy with sampling were done in each horse. Five main causes of poor performance were identified: locomotor, respiratory, cardiac, muscular problems and inadequate training. In the poor performers group, 24 horses suffered from upper and/or lower respiratory disease, 20 from lameness, 4 from cardiac disease, 4 from exercise-induced myopathy and 5 from maladjusted training. More than half of the horses had multiple problems (23 horses). The fitness parameters (V-LA4, V-200) obtained were useful for inter-individual comparisons and discriminated poor performers from healthy controls, whatever the cause of the intolerance. This study confirms the high prevalence of lameness and respiratory diseases as causes of poor performance in racehorses. The field exercise tests were readily performed with minimal equipment and enabled to identify conditions which were not clearly apparent as during the clinical examination at rest. The recovery of maximum information by a thorough questioning of the trainer and selected ancillary examinations was critical to reach a diagnosis. [less ▲]

Using manual acoustic tracking our study quantified (1) the spatial distribution (2) the movement patterns and (3) the depth preference of adult whitefish, Coregonus lavaretus in it small artificial lake of eastern Belgium were the species was introduced in 1978 for recreational fishing. From June to October 2004, n=6 C. lavaretus (LF 285-519 mm) were tracked (pingers and depth sensor transmitters) from a small boat over periods ranging from 98 to 108 days in Robertville Lake (elevation: 490 m; area: 63 ha max. depth: 47 in). Whitefish were consistently mobile but showed quite variable lake use patterns. Two individuals traveled the entire length and breadth of the lake, whereas others remained in movement in the deep zone in the middle part of the lake or near the retaining darn wall. Whitefish occupied positions in the water column ranging front 2.6 to 27.0 m (mean 12.7 +/- 5.6 m) that varied depending on individuals. This first study on individual whitefish behaviour provides a better understanding of the behavioural ecology of the species in small artificial lake. [less ▲]

Rosemaryite, ideally NaMnFe(3+)AI(PO4)(3), has been collected in the Buranga pegmatite, Rwanda. A single-crystal structure refinement was performed to R-1 = 4.01 %, in the P2(1)/n space group, with a = 12.001(2), b = 12.396(1), c = 6.329(1) angstrom, beta 114.48(1)degrees, Vol. = 856.9(2) angstrom(3), Z = 4. The crystal structure and cation distributions are similar to those of ferrorosemaryite, NaFe2+Fe3+Al(PO4)(3), and qingheiite, Na2MnMgAl(PO4)(3), but aluminium predominantly occurs in the M(2a) site, not in the M(2b) site as observed in ferrowyllieite, Na2Fe22+Al(PO4)(3). The topologies of the X(1a) and X(1b) crystallographic sites are identical to those found in ferrorosemaryite, and correspond to a distorted octahedron and to a distorted cube, respectively. The [7+1]-coordinated X(2) site is a very distorted gable disphenoid, similar to the A(2)' site of the alluaudite structure. Mossbauer spectra have been obtained from 4.2 to 295 K, and fitted with a model including two Fe3+ and two Fe2+ doublets. The Fe2+ component corresponding to 2/3 of the Fe2+ spectral area and having a smaller quadrupole splitting of 2.63 mm/s at 15 K, is assigned to the Fe2+ on the M(2a) site, and the Fe2+ component with the larger quadrupole splitting of 3.17 mm/s at 15 K, is assigned to the Fe2+ on the M(1) site. Fe3+ is located only at the M(2a) and M(2b) sites, and the Fe3+ component corresponding to 3/4 of the Fe3+ and exhibiting the larger quadrupole spitting of 0.77 mm/s at 15 K, is most likely associated with Fe3+ on the M(2b) site. The infrared spectrum of rosemaryite shows absorption bands at 3450 and 1624 cm(-1), bands that arise from the vibrational modes of H2O and confirm the presence of water in the channels of the wyllieite structure. A comparison of both the Mossbauer spectra and structural data of rosemaryite with those of other phosphates of the alluaudite and wyllieite groups, is also presented. [less ▲]

The book explains the physical foundations of the most common in-vivo medical imaging modalities. It is written for readers having a basic knowledge of physics. However the most essential physical phenomenon and their properties are described. Exploring the electromagnetic spectrum from the shortest to the longest wavelengths the book deals with nuclear imaging, RX imaging, endoscopy, thermography and MRI. Acoustic wave and ultrasonography is the next subject. The book ends with the digital image and a few radioprotection notions. [less ▲]
