Development of Anatomically Realistic Numerical Breast Phantoms With Accurate Dielectric Properties for Modeling Microwave Interactions With the Human Breast
A collection of anatomically realistic 3-D numerical breast phantoms of varying shape, size, and radiographic density which can readily be used in finite-difference time-domain computational electromagnetics models of microwave interactions with the human breast. Expand

Computed tomographic measurement of the xenon brain-blood partition coefficient and implications for regional cerebral blood flow: a preliminary report.
The calculation of regional cerebral blood flow requires, in addition to the measurement of the clearance, a knowledge of the regional brain-blood partition coefficient. The usual 133Xe washoutExpand
