It was reported that emergency physicians were 98% to 100% accurate in their clinical diagnosis of a shoulder dislocation (6).
where b is the spacetime Burgers dislocation vector [9], l is the length of the dislocation, [b.sub.c] is the size of the core of the dislocation, of order [b.sub.0], the smallest spacetime Burgers dislocation vector [10], and [LAMBDA] is a cut-off parameter corresponding to the radial extent of the dislocation, limited by the average distance to its nearest neighbours.
The lumbosacral joint has an increased inclination in the sagittal plane and the facets at this junction have a more vertical, frontal plane orientation [22], resisting anterior translation and making dislocation a rare injury.
Engineers typically manipulate the strength of metal through techniques such as cold working or annealing, which exert their effects through small, yet important, structural irregularities called dislocations.

After shoulder dislocation, patients tend not to move their arm due to muscle spasm and pain.
Patellar dislocation is defined as a disruption of a normal patellar position in the trochlear groove.
Recalling his almost suicidal bout with depression, Styron wrote: 'My brain had begun to endure its familiar siege: panic and dislocation, and a sense that my thought processes were being engulfed by a toxic and unnameable tide that obliterated any enjoyable response to the living word.' A sense of dislocation can manifest itself not only in the psychic realm, but in every aspect of human existence: social, cultural, religious, political, and even in the economic sphere.

Accurate computational construction of screw and edge dislocations, in a titanium/titanium dioxide system, will be achieved by utilising the multi-scale atomistic approach of "embedding": a technique whereby a self-consistent polarisable-ion tight binding model governs the energies of atoms in the non-linear stressed 'cores' of dislocations, while a bond order potential model- which provides a faster, but less accurate, approach to modelling atomic energies-governs the regions of atoms outside of the core.
