BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Streptokinase is used clinically as an intravenous thrombolytic agent for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction and is commonly prepared from cultures of Streptococcus equisimilis strain H46A. The objective of the present study was the production of streptokinase from strain H46A and purification by chemical reduction(More)
In this paper, we develop a numerical mixed flexible-rigid body model to take into account the effects of the external disturbances acting on a flexible manipulator secondary to the oscillatory transmitral blood flow in the left ventricle. The manipulator is made of a flexible rubber-like material to further extend the surgical robotic-based catheters’(More)
Prostate cancer is one of the most frequent cancers in men and is a major cause of mortality in the most of countries. In many diagnostic and treatment procedures for prostate disease accurate detection of prostate boundaries in transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) images is required. This is a challenging and difficult task due to weak prostate boundaries,(More)
Artificial neural networks have gained a lot of interest as empirical models for their powerful representational capacity, multi input and output mapping characteristics. In fact, most feedforward networks with nonlinear nodal functions have been proved to be universal approximates. In this paper, we propose a new supervised method for color image(More)
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death by cancer among men in the world. Ultrasonography is said to be the safest technique in medical imaging so it is used extensively in prostate cancer detection. On the other hand, determining of prostate’s boundary in TRUS (Transrectal Ultrasound) images is very necessary in lots of treatment methods(More)
In this paper, we propose a linear parameter varying (LPV) control design approach for trajectory tracking in a robotic system, intended to be involved in an image-guided teleoperated cardiac surgery. The robot is eventually aimed to guide a 3 degree-of-freedom medical tool (a catheter) inside the left ventricle (LV) and achieve the implantation of a(More)
