Investigation of swallowing is an important part of oral diagnosis. It usually plays a role in the aetiology of some orofacial deformities and open-bite as well as in the relapse of treated open-bite patients. In recent years, the movements of the anatomical structures that participate in deglutition have been investigated by several methods such as cineradiography, electromyography, electropalatography, electromagnetic articulography and ultrasonography. However, all these techniques have various disadvantages. Recently, dynamic magnetic resonance imaging has become available in the evaluation of swallowing function. In this study we intended to present this new technique to the dental literature and aimed to obtain dynamic images of the deglutition process. We also compared the timing of events in subjects with anterior open-bite and normal overbite during swallowing 10 mL water.

The rotational velocity of plasma layers with various densities in a pulsed
reflex-discharge plasma is studied with the use of the two-frequency microwave
fluctuation reflectometry. The difference between the angular rotational
velocities of plasma layers with different densities is revealed, and t...
The Large Area Water Cherenkov Array (LAWCA) experiment focuses on high
energy gamma astronomy between 100 GeV and 30 TeV. Invoked by the idea of
hardware triggerless structure, a prototype of LAWCA trigger electronics is
implemented in one single VME-9U module which obtains all the data from the 1...
