[…] (pandey et al., ) identifies indels that appear only in hpts near the primers and discards them. the program does not identify indels occurring far from the primers. varscan (koboldt et al., ) and varid (dalca et al., ) can identify indels, but these programs deal with variability and single nucleotide polymorphism (snp) identification, and do not distinguish between legitimate and artifact […]

[…] of the lbw and bsa on the validity of the contrast agent volume on ctv and ctpa protocols., we hypothesised that the bw-tailored protocol would be suitable to keep the contrast agent volume to yield varid venous enhancement on ctv images. the purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the required contrast agent dose to acquire diagnostic-quality ctv with a bw-tailored […]
