Secondary syphilis presenting in a red tattoo.
Congenital scoliosis with associated rib fusions: nursing care of patients following VEPTR insertion.
Congenital scoliosis with associated rib fusions, flail chest syndrome and hypoplastic thorax may create a progressive 3-dimensional deformity of the thorax, thereby inhibiting normal lung growth and respiratory function leading to respiratory insufficiency. The recently coined term for this conditi...
Multiple basal cell carcinomas arising in radiotherapy-treated nevus flammeus: early detection facilitated by 595-nm pulsed dye laser.
Paraffin-embedded and frozen sections of Drosophila adult muscles.
We present the histological technique for preparing paraffin-embedded and frozen sections of Drosophila thoracic muscles. These preparations allow for the tissue to be stained with classical histological stains and labeled with protein detecting dyes, and specifically cryosections are ideal for immu...
Evaluation of partial body composition using bioelectrical impedance in Japanese children.
We measured body fat and muscle using BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis) in 685 Japanese elementary schoolchildren (aged 6-11 years). The growth patterns of percentage body fat (%BF), fat mass (FM), and muscle mass (MM) were examined throughout the whole body and in various body parts. The %BF o...
Role of Notch signaling in establishing the hemilineages of secondary neurons in Drosophila melanogaster.
We find that the two daughters of the GMC consistently have distinct fates. Using both loss-of-function and gain-of-function approaches, we examined the role of Notch signaling in establishing neuronal fates within all of the thoracic secondary lineages. In all cases, the 'A' (Notch(ON)) sibling ass...
ZMIND - an interactive environment for electrical modeling of the thorax.
We describe an anatomically realistic finite difference modeling software environment, referred as ZMIND. Segmented image-based finite difference models of a male adult at the end of systole and the end of diastole were constructed based on ECG-gated MRI scans. Up to 36 types of tissues were identif...
[Establishment and analysis of a three-dimensional finite element model of human cervicotnoracic junction (C6-T1)].
The cervicothoracic spine finite element model included 169,317 nodes and 106,242 units, and consistent with the in vitro biomechanical tests. The three-dimensional finite element model was in good running under external force. CONCLUSION: It is a convenient and precise method for physicians to esta...
MEFS - MIND electrical impedance tomography forward solver.
We describe a high resolution, image-based electrical thoracic modeling software environment, named MEFS (MIND EIT Forward Solver). The software environment utilizes anatomically realistic geometry of the thorax, allows placing electrode of any shape interactively, and yields the detailed field info...
Computational modelling of blood-flow-induced changes in blood electrical conductivity and its contribution to the impedance cardiogram.
Studies have shown that blood-flow-induced change in electrical conductivity is of equal importance in assessment of the impedance cardiogram (ICG) as are volumetric changes attributed to the motion of heart, lungs and blood vessels. To better understand the sole effect of time-varyi...
