The CT density of the same pulmonary nodule can vary significantly between scanners or with the same scanner because several independent factors besides partial volume averaging can affect its determination. Hence a single CT number cannot be used to distinguish calcified from noncalcified nodules, ruling out direct extrapolation of quantitative data(More)
Eight conducting polymer films of polypyrrole and its derivatives were used as sensitive and selective coatings for thickness-shear mode (TSM) acoustic wave sensors. They were applied to the detection of volatile alcohols and carbonyl compounds, which are important fish freshness determinants. The conducting polymers were synthesized and coated on TSM(More)
Eight different conducting polymer films formed from pyrrole and N-substituted pyrrole derivatives were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and scanning electron microscopy. In particular, the XPS of poly[N-butylpyrrole], poly[N-(2-carboxyethyl)pyrrole], poly[N-(6-hydroxyhexyl)pyrrole] and(More)
The attachment of blood platelets to the surface of bare and protein-coated thickness-shear mode acoustic wave devices operating in a flow-through configuration has been studied. Platelets in washed from bind to the gold electrodes of such sensors, but the resulting frequency shifts are far less than predicted by the conventional mass-based model of device(More)
