The Radiological Society of North America has launched a project called the Medical Image Resource Center (MIRC) to establish a community of Webbased libraries of imaging information, including teaching files, other educational materials, and research data. This system would enable radiologic professionals to create and publish such materials more easily(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the role of 18-fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computerized tomography ((18)F-FDG PET/CT) in the preoperative prediction of the presence and extent of neck disease in patients with oral/head and neck cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy patients were enrolled in the study, 47 of whom had a clinically(More)

UNLABELLED BACKGROUND For millennia, iron-tannate dyes have been used to colour ceremonial and domestic objects shades of black, grey, or brown. Surviving iron-tannate dyed objects are part of our cultural heritage but their existence is threatened by the dye itself which can accelerate oxidation and acid hydrolysis of the substrate. This causes many(More)
Cerebral cavernous malformation is a clinically well-defined microvascular disorder predisposing to stroke; however, the major phenotype observed in zebrafish is the cardiac defect, specifically an enlarged heart. Less effort has been made to explore this phenotypic discrepancy between human and zebrafish. Given the fact that the gene products from(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of our bioassay technique is to demonstrate high throughput, highly parallel, and high sensitivity quantitative molecular analysis that will expand current biomedical research capabilities. To this end, we have built and characterized a magnetophoresis instrument using a flow chamber in a magnetic field gradient to sort magnetic(More)
There has been growing interest in using poly (lactic acid) (PLA) fibres because of its natural-based origin and good biodegradability; however its adoption within the textile industry has been limited to lower temperature wet and dry processing, because of its relatively lower glass transition temperature (Tg) and melting point (Tm). Here we report for the(More)
