Les orbites des satellites météorologiques

Michel Capderou
2017 La Météorologie  
Les satellites météorologiques sont étudiés ici du point de vue de leur orbite. On présente en détail les deux principaux types d'orbite utilisés : l'orbite géostationnaire (GEO), qui fournit au satellite un point de vue fixe de la Terre sur l'équateur terrestre mais très éloigné ; l'orbite plus basse (LEO), qui permet d'observer, grâce à la propriété d'héliosynchronisme, avec de bonnes conditions d'éclairement solaire. Nous terminons par d'autres types d'orbites utilisées plus récemment.
more » ... ct Satellite orbits for meteorology Meteorological satellites are studied in this article from the point of view of their orbit. The two most common orbit types are explained: the geostationary orbit (GEO), which provides the satellite with a fixed point of view of the Earth on the terrestrial equator, but is very remote; the lower orbit (LEO), which makes it possible to observe Earth scenes with good conditions of solar illumination, thanks to the property of Sunsynchronism. We end with other types of orbit more recently used.

Comparison of Echocardiography and CT for the Assessment of Aortic Stenosis Valve Area

Michel Habis, Andre Capderou, Said Ghostine, Jean-Francois Paul
2015 JACC Cardiovascular Imaging  
To our knowledge, this is the first report of followup OCT assessments in CTO lesions with BVS including subintimal scaffolding. Although the results herewith demonstrated are promising, we acknowledge that longer-term follow-up imaging evaluations would be able to provide further insights into the assessment of scaffold reabsorption, whereas physiological assessments would be able to test whether vasodilation capabilities are recovered in this setting. Further validation of our findings is

REPLY: Comparison of Echocardiography and CT for the Assessment of Aortic Stenosis Valve Area We appreciate the interest of Dr. Habis and colleagues in our study (1) and their contribution to this research area. In response to their first issue, there is indeed a difference in the elliptic shape of the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) between systole and diastole by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). Although this shape change is statistically significant, the clinical significance of the difference is modest and would rarely change the grading of aortic stenosis (AS) severity by MDCT. Indeed, in our study the timing of LVOT planimetry between systole and diastole would affect LVOT area by 6% (between 2% and 14%), a finding consistent with the literature (1-3) and close to the variation observed by intraobserver and interobserver variability (2). Thus, the issue of systolic versus diastolic LVOT measurement does not affect our results notably, as reported in our paper (1). Planimetry of aortic valve area, as emphasized by Dr. Habis and colleagues, measures the geometric orifice area (GOA), not the effective orifice area (EOA), so differences between methods are expected. We agree that the theoretical interest of planimetered GOA by MDCT is linked to the hypothesis that MDCTplanimetered GOA may have superior reproducibility and reliability.

2013 Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases  
Background.-Despite the prevalence of right ventricular (RV) failure in congenital heart diseases, cell therapy applied to the right ventricle is poorly studied. Our aim was to evaluate in a large animal model of overloaded RV dysfunction such therapy using cardiac progenitors issued from human embryonic stem cells. Methods.-A model of combined (barometric and volumetric) overloaded RV dysfunction was created in piglets using a surgical procedure mimicking repaired tetralogy of Fallot. After 4

Myocardial function was measured 3 months after cell transplantation by conductance catheter technique using maximal elastance

OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 64-slice computed tomography (CT) to identify coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with complete left bundle branch block (LBBB). BACKGROUND Left bundle branch block increases risk of cardiac mortality, and prognosis is primarily determined by the underlying coronary disease. Non-invasive stress tests have limited performance, and conventional coronary angiography (CCA) is usually required. METHODS Sixty-six

The accuracy of 64-slice CT to detect significant stenosis (Ͼ50% lumen narrowing) was compared with quantitative coronary angiography. All segments were analyzed regardless of image quality from coronary calcification or motion artifacts. Results were analyzed by patient and by coronary segment (990) using the American Heart Association 15-segment model. RESULTS Lower heart rates were associated with improved image quality. Computed tomography correctly identified 35 of 37 (95%) patients without significant stenosis and 28 of 29 (97%) patients with significant stenosis on CCA. Computed tomography correctly assessed 68 of 94 (72%) significant stenosis. Overall, accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of 64-slice CT for identifying CAD by patient was 95%, 97%, 95%, 93%, and 97%, respectively, and by segment was 97%, 72%, 99%, 91%, and 97%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS In a routine clinical practice, 64-slice CT detects with excellent accuracy a significant CAD in patients with complete LBBB. A normal CT in this clinical setting is a robust tool to act as a filter and avoid invasive diagnostic procedures. (J Am Coll Cardiol 2006;48:1929 -34)

Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonists (MRA) have proven their cardioprotective effects in individuals with chronic heart failure (CHF) by minimizing the cardiovascular damages caused by the excessive aldosterone production observed in those patients. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) that represents one of the major risk factors for CHF has been also reported to be associated with increased aldosterone levels and MR activation and may contribute in that way to the pathogenesis of HF. Thus, we

MRA Eplerenone (100 mg/kg/day) or placebo was administrated to 1.5 month-old obese and lean Spontaneously Hypertensive Heart Failure male rats (SHHF cp/cp and SHHF +/+ respectively) for a period of 11 months. Animal metabolic and cardiac parameters were regularly monitored during the protocol. When compared to the SHHF +/+ , MetS rats induces of mortality of 30% in SHHF cp/cp group that was completely prevented by the preventive treatment with Eplerenone. Indeed, SHHF cp/cp developed over time a massive obesity, dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. Echocardiograms showed an accelerated transition to cardiac dysfunction evidenced by left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), a decreased relaxation and contractile properties of the myocardium as well as LV dilatation. MRA, prevented rats' body weight gain (-10%), dyslipidemia (-50%) and enhanced adiponectinemia (+50%). Independently of a blood pressure decrease, cardiac parameters of Eple-SHHF cp/cp rats were preserved compared to SHHF cp/cp : LV diameter (9.9±0.14 vs 11.4±0.13 mm, respectively), LV mass (1760±72 vs 2195±73 mg), ejection fraction (70±1 vs 59±1%), isovolumic relaxation time (30±1 vs 22±1 ms) and E/A ratio (1.7±0.1 vs 3±0.3). Altogether, our data demonstrated that administration of eplerenone at the very early stages of MetS delayed their progression to CHF and prevented mortality. The beneficial cardioprotective effects were obtained via a mechanism independent of blood pressure lowering.

We assess the accuracy and the precision of the TanDEM-X digital elevation model (DEM) of the western Gulf of Corinth, Greece. We use a dense set of accurate ground coordinates obtained by kinematic Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) observations. Between 2001 and 2019, 148 surveys were made, at a 1 s sampling rate, along highways, roads, and tracks, with a total traveled distance of ∼25 000 km. The data are processed with the online Canadian Spatial Reference System precise point

Using specific calibration surveys, we estimate the mean vertical accuracy of the GNSS coordinates at 0.2 m. Resampling the DEM by a factor of 10 allows one to compare it with the GNSS in pixels of metric size, smaller than the width of the roads, even the small trails. The best fit is obtained by shifting the DEM by 0.47 ± 0.03 m upward, 0.10 ± 0.1 m westward, and 0.36 ± 0.1 m southward. Those values are 20 times below the nominal resolution of the DEM. Once the shift is corrected, the root mean square deviation between TanDEM-X DEM and GNSS elevations is 1.125 m. In forest and urban areas, the shift between the DEM
