Orientation anisotropy for suprathreshold gratings of different spatial frequencies was measured using a contrast matching procedure. Observers matched the contrast of sine-wave gratings of various orientations to a vertical reference grating set at different reference contrasts. At threshold, the size of the anisotropy increased with spatial frequency,(More)
This article presents the synthesis and characterization of biocompatible superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) coated with ultrathin layer of anionic derivative of chitosan. The water-based fabrication involved a two-step procedure. In the first step, the nanoparticles were obtained by co-precipitation of ferrous and ferric aqueous salt(More)
Dual-mode MRI contrast agents consisting of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle (SPION) cores and gadolinium ions associated with the ionic chitosan protecting layer were synthesized and studied. Gadolinium ions were introduced into the coating layer via direct complex formation on the nanoparticles surface, covalent attachment or electrostatically(More)
Syntheses and characterizations of biocompatible superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles with embedded curcumin and coated with ultrathin layer of hyaluronic acid-curcumin (HA-Cur) conjugate have been reported. Zeta potential measurements confirmed effective coating of native iron oxide nanoparticles stabilized by cationic derivative of chitosan(More)
Traditional evaluation of fetal weight is performed by means of ultrasonography and mathematical formulas using combinations of biometric parameters, like abdominal circumference (AC), head circumference (HC), biparietal diameter (BPD), femur length (FL). It was recently shown that mentioned parameters and intrauterine growth patterns demonstrate(More)
