Spatial encoding in MR techniques is achieved by sampling the signal as a function of time in the presence of a magnetic field gradient. The gradients are assumed to generate a linear magnetic field gradient, and typical image reconstruction relies upon this approximation. However, high-speed gradients in the current generation of MRI scanners often(More)
The distributed systems like Body Sensor Networks(BSNs) where biosensor nodes are distributed in different positions to collect health data from the human body and deliver the information to a remote medical center. As per the medical data regulations, security of BSNs is very important. The operational resources are very restricted of the biosensor nodes(More)
Calcitonin gene-related peptide is a potent vasodilator neuropeptide that is localized in perivascular sensory nerves. To determine whether alpha-calcitonin gene-related peptide possesses protective activity against hypertension-induced end organ damage, hypertension was induced in alpha-calcitonin gene-related/calcitonin peptide knockout and wild-type mice(More)
Prior theoretical studies indicate that the negative spatial derivative of the electric field induced by magnetic stimulation may be one of the main factors contributing to depolarization of the nerve fiber. This paper studies this parameter for peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) induced by time-varying gradient fields during MRI scans. The numerical(More)
Users are inclined to share sensitive data in a remote server if no strong security mechanism is in place. Searchable encryption satisfies the need of users to execute a search on encrypted data. Previous searchable encryption method such as " public key encryption with keyword search (PEKS) " restricted the data access to certain users, because only the(More)
In modern magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), patients are exposed to strong, nonuniform static magnetic fields outside the central imaging region, in which the movement of the body may be able to induce electric currents in tissues which could be possibly harmful. This paper presents theoretical investigations into the spatial distribution of induced(More)
