Structural steel members with open cross-section are, in the majority of cases, subject to a combination of axial forces and mono- or bi-axial bending. Nonetheless, owing to specific use they may be subject to torsion as well. Even if torsional loads are of practical interest for steel members of open section, the European standard for the design o...
Subclinical LV dysfunction may be detected in paroxysmal AF rhythm by measuring torsional parameters through VVI which improves after AF ablation.

Determination of fetal LV rotational mechanics is feasible and reproducible using two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography. Basal rotation, longitudinal strain, and strain rate vary little with EFW and GA. Interpretation of LV apical rotation, twist, torsion, GCS, and CSR, however, must take GA or EFW into account. These data form the basi...

The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) is the first large-scale multi-ethnic population study in the U.S. to use advanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. MESA participants were free of cardiovascular disease at baseline between 2000 and 2002, and were followed up between 2009 and 2011 with repeated CMR examinations as par...

Gastrointestinal volvulus is mainly classified into two subtypes, mesentero-axial volvulus and organo-axial volvulus. The detailed imaging findings of organo-axial volvulus of the small intestine have never been reported as far as we know. In this article, we report a case of organo-axial volvulus of the small intestine, focusing on the computed to...
LV torsion was altered in OSA patients with varying degrees according to the disease severity. Furthermore, there was no significant change of torsion after 24 weeks of CPAP therapy.
