Monitoring the effect of anesthetic drugs on the central nervous system is a major ongoing challenge in anesthesia research. A number of electroencephalogram (EEG)-based monitors of the anesthetic drug effect such as the bispectral (BIS) index have been proposed to analyze the EEG signal during anesthesia. However, the BIS index has received some criticism.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the effects of Hypericum perforatum on cesarean wound healing and hypertrophic scar. DESIGN This was a randomized, double-blind clinical trial study. SETTING The study was conducted in Samen-Ol-Aemmeh (Pbuh) Hospital in Mashhad, Iran. SUBJECTS The subjects included 144 women with surgical childbirth who(More)
Quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) has been used as a tool for neurophysiologic diagnostic. We used spectrogram and coherence values for evaluating qEEG in 17 children (13 boys and 4 girls aged between 6 and 11) with autism disorders (ASD) and 11 control children (7 boys and 4 girls with the same age range). Evaluation of qEEG with statistical(More)
Monitoring the depth of anesthesia using an electroencephalogram (EEG) is a major ongoing challenge for anesthetists. The EEG is a recording of brain electrical activity, and it contains valuable information related to the different physiological states of the brain. This study proposes a novel automated method consisting of two steps for assessing(More)
BACKGROUND Monitoring the effect of anesthetic drugs on the neural system is a major ongoing challenge for anesthetists. During the past few years, several electroencephalogram (EEG)-based methods such as the response entropy (RE) as implemented in the Datex-Ohmeda M-Entropy Module have been proposed. In this paper, sample entropy is used to quantify the(More)
BACKGROUND Initial studies have shown that low-energy ultrasound stimulates living tissue cells to reduce regeneration or speed up their recovery. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of various ultrasound parameters on the speed of recovery in injured sciatic nerves. METHODS NMRI mice (n = 200) with injured left paw, caused by crushing(More)
High-intensity focused ultrasound induces focalized tissue coagulation by increasing the tissue temperature in a tight focal region. Several methods have been proposed to monitor high-intensity focused ultrasound-induced thermal lesions. Currently, ultrasound imaging techniques that are clinically used for monitoring high-intensity focused ultrasound(More)
PURPOSE Identification and assessment of left ventricular (LV) global and regional wall motion (RWM) abnormalities are essential for clinical evaluation of various cardiovascular diseases. Currently, this evaluation is performed visually which is highly dependent on the training and experience of echocardiographers and thus is prone to considerable(More)
The purpose of this research was evaluating novel shape and texture feature’ efficiency in classification of benign and malignant breast masses in sonography images. First, mass regions were extracted from the region of interest (ROI) sub-image by implementing a new hybrid segmentation approach based on level set algorithms. Then two left and right side(More)
