Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Inhibition Modulates the Microenvironment by Vascular Normalization to Improve Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Efficacy
Background Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors have shown only modest clinical activity when used as single agents to treat cancers. They decrease tumor cell expression ofExpand

Measurement and use of acoustic nonlinearity and sound speed to estimate composition of excised livers.
The acoustic nonlinearity parameter B/A and sound speed c have been determined for excised normal and abnormal human livers at 20-37 degrees C. These values are compared with analytic measurements ofExpand

Quantitative vascularity of breast masses by Doppler imaging: regional variations and diagnostic implications.
Seventy-four biopsy proven breast masses were imaged by color and power Doppler imaging to evaluate vascular pattern of malignant and benign breast masses. The images were analyzed for vascularity.Expand

Sonographic brightness of the flexor tendons and ligaments in the metacarpal region of horses.
Sonographic observations were made of the image mean gray scale (MGS) of the flexor tendons and ligaments in the left and right metacarpal regions of each of 10 clinically normal horses. In imagesExpand

Ultrasonic absorption and dispersion in biological media: A postulated model
An integrated approach for the absorption of ultrasound by liquids and tissues is proposed from the solution of a one‐dimensional wave equation of propagation. The proposed model explains the squareExpand
