pattern 

A combination of acts or parts, forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement or behaviour.
A pattern Neuromuscular anomaly of the eyes characterized by an increase in exotropia when the eyes fixate downward, or increase in esotropia when the eyes fixate upward. Upgaze and downgaze are usually measured at 25 degrees from the horizontal. Syn. A syndrome. See convergent strabismus; divergent strabismus.
checkerboard pattern A square set of equal size black and white squares placed adjacent to one another. It is used to test visual acuity. The common way of using this pattern is to present it in the form of a square diamond made up of four smaller diamonds. Three of these are composed of a pattern of much smaller squares than the fourth. Resolution of the pattern with larger squares consists in indicating where it is located (top, bottom, right or left) while the other three squares appear as a uniform grey. This acuity test is less dependent on cognitive factors than letters. (Fig. P4). See visual acuity; test type.
V pattern A neuromuscular anomaly of the eyes characterized by an increase in exotropia when the eyes rotate upward, or increase in esotropia when the eyes rotate downward. Syn. V syndrome. See convergent strabismus; divergent strabismus.
X pattern A neuromuscular anomaly in which the visual axes are more divergent when the eyes fixate upward and downward, as compared to the primary position of gaze.
Y pattern A neuromuscular anomaly of the eyes in which there is increasing exotropia as the eyes rotate straight upward with orthotropia in the primary position and on downward gaze.

Patient discussion about pattern

Q. What pattern of heredity does diabetes follow? I know that baldness comes from your mother's father. How does diabetes travel through generations?

A. Ninety percent of children who develop type 1 diabetes actually have no relative with the disease. But it’s an auto immune disease. That means that some people are in risk of getting diabetes type 1. Depends on the immune system they inherited. It’s not “recessive” or “dominant”, if your parent has type 1 – you have a 25% chance of getting the risk factor.

Which would be the best diet pattern for a woman to have a flat stomach?

A. Hello. I think some of the previous posts are correct. In addition to increasing your physical activity, it's also very important to monitor how often you go to the bathroom to get rid fat causing waste inside of your stomach. You definitely need to drink lots of water and in order to allow for your body to naturally dispose of these harmful waste.
