Positron emission tomography demonstrates different abnormalities of cerebral metabolism or characteristic disturbances of neurotransmission systems in "cortical" and "subcortical" dementias. Those patterns may reflect the underlying anatomopathology, but may also give clues to the pathophysiology of a disease and its symptoms. [less ▲]

Advances in imaging techniques have allowed more precise staging and better evaluation of the effect of new treatment modalities. The limitations of conventional morphologic imaging techniques are well known. Positron emission tomography (PET) using fluorine-18-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose is now routinely used for initial staging and re-evaluation during or after treatment of Hodgkin's disease and aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), but not in low-grade NHL. In the first part of this review, the relationship between glucose metabolism as measured by PET, pathological findings including histological grade and proliferative activity, and prognosis are analyzed. In the second part, the potential role of PET in the staging and follow-up of low-grade NHL is discussed. Published data indicate that PET may contribute to the management of low-grade follicular NHL. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Cyst infection remains a challenging issue in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). In most patients, conventional imaging techniques are inconclusive. Isolated observations suggest that (18)fluorodeoxyglucose ((1)(8)FDG) positron-emission computed tomography (PET/CT) might help detect cyst infection in ADPKD patients. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Comparative assessment of administrative databases from January 2005 to December 2009 identified 27 PET/CT scans performed in 24 ADPKD patients for suspicion of abdominal infection. Cyst infection was definite if confirmed by cyst fluid analysis. Cyst infection was probable if all four of the following criteria were met: temperature of >38 degrees C for >3 days, loin or liver tenderness, C-reactive protein plasma level of >5 mg/dl, and no CT evidence for intracystic bleeding. Episodes with only two or three criteria were grouped as "fever of unknown origin". RESULTS: Thirteen infectious events in 11 patients met all criteria for kidney (n = 3) or liver (n = 10) cyst infection. CT was contributive in only one patient, whereas PET/CT proved cyst infection in 11 patients (84.6%). In addition, 14 episodes of "fever of unknown origin" in 13 patients were recorded. PET/CT identified the source of infection in nine patients (64.3%), including 2 renal cyst infections. Conversely, PET/CT showed no abnormal (1)(8)FDG uptake in 5 patients, including 2 intracystic bleeding. The median delay between the onset of symptoms and PET/CT procedure was 9 days. CONCLUSIONS: This retrospective series underscores the usefulness of PET/CT to confirm and locate cyst infection and identify alternative sources of abdominal infection in ADPKD patients. [less ▲]

Drawing on whiteness studies and psychoanalytical theory, this article explores representations of interracial relationships as a means to claim and/or contest the ideal of whiteness in Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. In Hamid’s novel, the 9/11 attacks trigger a crisis in self-identification for model-minority Pakistani protagonist Changez, which proves illuminating in terms of the invisible racial subjugation exerted so far upon him by Jim, Changez’s passport into the corporate world, and by Erica, his (white) lifeline to exclusive Manhattan. The article focuses on the ways in which Hamid uses the post 9/11 context to reveal the racial melancholia surreptitiously informing today’s “new” versions of the American Dream, which is apparent in Changez’s and Erica’s relationship as well as in their parallel impossible mourning of the broken mirror of “white” Am/Erica. Emphasizing the extent to which whiteness and racial melancholia permeate the discourse of assimilation, Hamid’s book rewrites the “new” American Dream as what Anne Anlin Cheng has called a “fantasy built on absences”.

Towards the end of the 20th century, as the propagation of new discourses of ethnic success generated new versions of the American Dream, “America” came to signify not only immigrant mobility and whiteness, but also multiculturalism. As Inderpal Grewal argues in Transnational America, this paradox of sorts was only made possible through a slippage in the meaning of “white,” within which whiteness still connoted Anglo-America, yet extended its meaning to include a more heterogeneous group that passed as white through the endorsement of culturally-specific consumerist practices and middle-class norms of behaviour. Posing as multicultural yet covertly fastening whiteness to an ideal Americanness, these so-called “new” versions of the American Dream elevated the Asian American community to “model minority” status, thus contributing to rationalize away the lure that a “relative whiteness” could somehow be acquired by non-white minority groups. Drawing on whiteness studies and psychoanalytical theory, my paper will explore representations of interracial relationships as a means to claim and/or contest the ideal of whiteness in Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. In Hamid’s novel, the 9/11 attacks trigger a crisis in self-identification for model-minority protagonist Changez, which proves illuminating in terms of the invisible racial subjugation exerted so far onto him by Jim, Changez’s passport into the corporate world, and by Erica, his (white) lifeline to exclusive Manhattan.

Emphasizing the extent to which whiteness and racial melancholia permeate the discourse of assimilation, Hamid’s book rewrites the “new” American Dream as a “fantasy built on absences” (Anne Anlin Cheng).

Introduction Le matériel GPS a fait une percée très remarquée dans de nombreuses applications civiles au cours des cinq dernières années (transports, génie civil, topographie, randonnée, …). La gestion forestière, pour laquelle la dimension spatiale joue un rôle important, n’échappe pas à la règle et les possibilités d’application de cette nouvelle technologie y sont multiples. Le présent document a pour objectif d'expliquer les grands principes de fonctionnement des récepteurs GPS et de présenter les possibilités d'utilisation de ces appareils en forêt. L’accent est mis sur les niveaux de précision à espérer en fonction des conditions d’utilisation. Le type d’appareil considéré dans ce document est celui des récepteurs de bas de gamme (GPS dits de "randonnée"), dont le prix d'achat varie entre 250 et 500 €. Ce choix délibéré est lié non seulement au coût abordable de cette gamme d’appareils, mais également à sa simplicité de mise en oeuvre. [less ▲]

In our cities, trees must face many root stress. The most current are: •The chronic drought, bound to the narrowness of the plantation holes, to the packing of soil, to the asphalt cover of the surroundings ; •The asphyxic conditions, due to the same reasons ; •The chemical factors: inadequate pH, high salinity, deficiencies in nutrient elements, toxicity of others…; •The human aggressions: vandalism, injuries due to public works,… In spite of the diversity of the reasons, several morpho-physiological consequences are similar, notably on the depression of mineral nutrition and of water balance. Consequently, the proposed are aimed at the remediation of these effects. They are based on the correction of mineral deficiencies by injections of nutrient solutions, on the improvement of the biologic fertility by mycorrhiza inoculations, or on the aeration of soil structure. Some technics combine these different treatments. [less ▲]
