After completing the lessons, Han was able to select the correct oblique projection or perspective picture card, no longer insisting that a cube can be ideally represented only by a square.
To achieve the optimality of the CG error vector in the A-norm an oblique projection has to be used (see Sections 11 and 12), which can be viewed as an A-orthogonal projection however, and has nothing to do with the oblique projections promoted here.
The accuracy of measurements performed on straight lateral radiographic projections with superimposed limbs was not consistently superior to measurements on oblique projections with a slightly rotated pelvis.
The following proposition states that any oblique projection with infinite dimensional range can be decomposed by using biorthogonal systems.
The posteromedial axial oblique projection requires the patient's affected leg to be rotated laterally 10[degrees] to 15[degrees] so that the lateral surface of the patella is closest to the film (anterolateral oblique position).
We did not record the radiation dose rate in right anterior oblique projection because too many extra projection positions may increase the radiation exposure burden on the patients.
As mentioned in the introduction, we use oblique projection to compute the projection of the gradient onto the finite element space [S.
Images were acquired using a step-and-shoot circular orbit over a 180[degrees] arc, starting at the 45[degrees] right anterior oblique projection and ending at the 45[degrees] left posterior oblique projection, for a total of 64 projections at 25 seconds per projection at stress and 20 seconds per projection at rest.
Standardized angiographic projections (LMA, LAD and left circumflex arteries were assessed in the right anterior oblique projection with caudal angulations, and for the right coronary artery in the left anterior oblique projection with cranial angulations) were chosen for the assessment of each arterial segment.
However, there was a problem: The foreign body was not visible on the oblique projection.
Some mammographers find it easier to perform a lateromedial oblique (LMO) or true reverse oblique projection.
3] A useful positioning technique for demonstrating this lesion is the apical oblique projection of the shoulder (the Garth Method).
