In a Chinese study, the model for predicting EV was composed of liver stiffness, platelet count, spleen thickness, platelet/spleen thickness ratio and Child-Pugh Score, The sensitivity of the model was 96.
Diameter to wall thickness ratio between 25 < D/t < 39, and the length to tube diameter ratio of 3< L/D < 8 was investigated.
We also grouped adiposity measurements into overall adiposity (BMI, BMI z-scores, sum of subscapular and triceps skinfold thicknesses, DXA fat mass index, and DXA total fat-free mass index) and central adiposity (waist circumference, waist-to-hip circumference ratio, subscapular-to-triceps skinfold thickness ratio, and DXA trunk fat mass index), because we were interested in exploring the associations of PFASs with body fat distribution.
One- and two-layer flexes may be bent at a 10:1 radius to thickness ratio.
The scanning evaluation included (i) luminal diameter, (ii) measurement of intimal thickness and medial thickness, and (iii) measurement of intima-media thickness ratio.
Numerical examples are given to show the accuracy of the derived formulation and to illustrate the effect of the material distribution and the core thickness ratio on the large displacement behaviour of the FGSW beam and frame structures.
It was found that the onset of air entrainment strongly depends on the top to bottom film thickness ratio for bilayer coatings.
As, can be seen from of these figures that the natural frequencies are affected by the thickness ratio for high modes.
Whereas until recently, the maximum length-to-wall thickness ratio (L/t) of a preform was little more than 45, SIPA's Xtreme technology makes an L/t ratio of 80 a commercial reality.
Newer scoring systems, such as the RTII score, assess tumour depth to parenchymal thickness ratio, and the CSA score, assess tumour contact with normal parenchyma, and may be more predictive of renal surgery complexity.
