paper proposes an analog-digital mix-mode low power IC architecture inside the wireless endoscopic capsule, which assures that the capsule can implement the diagnoses of whole human digestive tract and provides real time endoscopic image monitoring. A new low complexity and low power digital IC design inside the wireless endoscopic capsule is discussed in(More)
State-of-the-art endoscopy systems require electronics allowing for real-time, bidirectional data transfer. Proposed are 2.4-GHz low-power transceiver analog front-end circuits for bidirectional high data rate wireless telemetry in medical endoscopy applications. The prototype integrates a low-IF receiver analog front-end [low noise amplifier (LNA), double(More)
This paper proposes a micro-system design for the wireless endoscopic capsule, which assures that the capsule has small size(less than 25mm<sup>*</sup>10mm), can implement the diagnoses of whole human digestive tract and provide real time endoscopic image monitoring. The designs of two core hardware parts inside the capsule, low power analog-digital(More)
This paper presents a new approach for near-lossless and lossless image compression in digital colorful image sensors with Bayer color filter arrays (CFAs). In this approach, the captured CFA raw data is firstly transformed from quincunx shape to rectangular shape and then smoothed by a low-pass filter. Lastly, the filtered data are compressed directly(More)
In order to decrease the communication bandwidth and save the transmitting power in the wireless endoscopy capsule, this paper presents a new near-lossless image compression algorithm based on the Bayer format image suitable for hardware design. This algorithm can provide low average compression rate (2.12 bits/pixel) with high image quality (larger than(More)
A clinically relevant photosensitizer, 3-devinyl-3-(1-hexyloxyethyl)pyropheophorbide-a (HPPH, a chlorophyll-a derivative), was conjugated with Gd(III)-aminobenzyl-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA), an experimental magnetic resonance (MR) imaging agent. In vivo reflectance spectroscopy confirmed tumor uptake of HPPH-aminobenzyl-Gd(III)-DTPA conjugate(More)
meso-(2-Formylvinyl)octaethylporphyrin on reaction with cyanotrimethylsilane in the presence of various catalysts [copper triflate [Cu(OTf)(2)], indium triflate [In(OTf)(3)], or magnesium bromide diethyl etherate (MgBr(2).Et(2)O)] produced a mixture of the intermediate 3-hydroxy-3-cyanopropenoporphyrin, the corresponding trimethylsilyl ether derivative, and(More)
