Vibrio tubiashii is a recently reemerging pathogen of larval bivalve mollusks, causing both toxigenic and invasive disease. Marine Vibrio spp. produce an array of extracellular products as potential pathogenicity factors. Culture supernatants of V. tubiashii have been shown to be toxic to oyster larvae and were reported to contain a metalloprotease and a… (More)
Telemedicine is the practice of medicine over communication links. The physician being consulted and the patient are in two different locations. A first telepathology system has been developed by Corabi Telemetries. It allows a pathologist to render a diagnosis by examining tissue samples or body fluids under a remotely l~ated microscope.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate scatter radiation dose to the subject surface during X-ray computed tomography (CT) fluoroscopy using the integrated dose ratio (IDR) of an X-ray dose profile derived from an optically stimulated luminescent (OSL) dosimeter. We aimed to obtain quantitative evidence supporting the radiation protection methods used… (More)
A 92-year-old Japanese woman was found to have the sternoclavicularis anticus muscles existing bilaterally during the course of educational dissection at Nagoya City University Medical School. It was confirmed that these muscles received the nerve supply from small branches of the lateral pectoral nerves from the brachial plexus. Herein is documented the… (More)
Dynamic telepathology uses a remotely controlled microscope to allow a pathologist to view samples at a remote location. However, time delays introduced by remote operation have made use of a commercial dynamic telepathology system difficult and frustrating. This paper describes experiments to evaluate and redesign the user interface. We also make… (More)
