Occlusions in single cortical microvessels lead to a reduction in oxygen supply, but this decrement has not been able to be quantified in three dimensions at the level of individual vessels using a single instrument. We demonstrate a combined optical system using two-photon phosphorescence lifetime and fluorescence microscopy (2PLM) to characterize the(More)
Non-invasive depth-resolved measurement of hemoglobin oxygen saturation (SaO(2)) levels in discrete blood vessels may have implications for diagnosis and treatment of various pathologies. We introduce a novel Dual-Wavelength Photothermal (DWP) Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for non-invasive depth-resolved measurement of SaO(2) levels in a blood vessel(More)
Conventional motor (MCV) and sensory conduction velocity (SCV) of the ulnar (UN), peroneal (PN) and median nerves (MN) and the areas of sympathetic sudomotor response (SSR) recorded from the middle finger were measured on both sides in 20 normal and 20 non-insulin-dependent diabetic (NIDD) subjects. Conventional statistical tests (t test, linear correlation(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) isolability, rate of viral replication, HIV phenotype, type 1 and type 2 cytokine production, and CD4 counts were cross sectionally analyzed in 63 HIV seropositive (HIV+) individuals to establish possible correlations between virologic and immunologic markers of protection and progression. We observed that these markers(More)
Although hemoglobin oxygen saturation (sO 2) in the microvasculature is an essential physiological parameter of local tissue functions, non-invasive measurement of microvascular sO 2 is still challenging. Here, we demonstrated that visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) can simultaneously provide three-dimensional anatomical tissue morphology,(More)
BAEPs were recorded from 89 healthy children aged 0.1-52.1 months. The maturation kinetics of interpeak latency I-V can be well approximated by an exponential model with a horizontal asymptote. Adult values are reached by about 3 years of life. Differences between males and females become significant when maturation is completed. A non-fragmented reference(More)
Acknowledgments The time I spent as a graduate student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have been both intellectually and personally rewarding and I have a lot of people to thank for making my stay enjoyable. I am deeply indebted to my advisor Dr. Andrew Dunn for his support, encouragement and guidance during(More)
Electrical stimulation of the spinal cord at C7D1 evoked triphasic descending spinal cord evoked potentials (DSCEP) from an oesophago-vertebral recording at D8D8 or D1OD1O. Ascending SCEPs (ASCEP) larger and similar in shape were also observed when the orientation of the stimulating and recording dipoles was reversed. Both SCEPs are in part generated by(More)
The sympathetic skin response (SSR), evoked from the middle finger of both hands by electrical stimuli to the median nerve (MN) at the wrist, was studied in 21 patients with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and in 16 patients with monolateral CTS (14 at the right and 2 at the left side) without clinical signs of autonomic involvement. In monolateral(More)
