This report describes the authors' experience in the design and implementation of two large scale picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) during the past 10 years. The first system, which is in daily clinical operation was developed at University of California, Los Angeles from 1983 to 1992. The second system, which continues evolving, has been(More)
The serotonin transporter (SERT) is responsible for reuptake of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) after its exocytotic release from neurons. It is the primary target for antidepressants and stimulants, including "ecstasy" (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine). SERT is regulated by several processes, including a cyclic GMP signaling pathway involving nitric(More)
Web-based multimedia tutorials are being developed for use in several undergraduate courses in Electrical Engineering and Computer and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer. These interactive learning modules (ILMs) are created with the Director authoring environment and can be deployed using a standard Web browser with Macromedia's Shockwave plug-in as the(More)
In a previous report we described a second-generation hospital-integrated picture archiving and communication system (HI-PACS) developed in-house. This HI-PACS had four unique features not found in other PAC systems. In this report, we will share some of our clinical experiences pertaining to these features during the past 12 months. We first describe the(More)
We measured the throughtput rates of individual picture archiving and communications system (PACS) subsystems including the acquisition, archive, display, and communication network as a basis of evaluation the overall throughput of our clinical PACS. The throughput rate of each PACS subsystem was measured in terms of average residence time of individual(More)
The board has delegated to the Communication and Public Education Committee the authority to approve all requests for alternate formats or display methodologies of the Notice to Consumers Poster and/or the Notice of Interpreter Availability Poster. Staff has developed a request form that may be used by pharmacies requesting approval of an alternate format(More)
Mpack Systems will present information on its new design for pharmacy prescription packaging. Background: Title 16 California Code of Regulations section 1707.5 specifies requirements for patient-centered labels for prescription drug containers. When the board promulgated these requirements, there was much public comment from numerous stakeholders. As such,(More)
Earlier this year, 200 researchers from across the globe gathered at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, for 3 days of talks from 30 of the leading pioneers in modern cardiovascular medicine. From May 8 to 10, 2014, scientists discussed and dissected topics ranging from the clinical treatment of atherosclerosis to the(More)
