The excellent soft tissue contrast of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has encouraged the development of MRI compatible systems capable of combining the advantages of robotic manipulators with high quality anatomical images. Continuing this development, a new five DOF prostate biopsy manipulator has been designed for use inside a closed 1.5T MRI scanner.(More)
We have identified truncating mutations in the human DLG3 (neuroendocrine dlg) gene in 4 of 329 families with moderate to severe X-linked mental retardation. DLG3 encodes synapse-associated protein 102 (SAP102), a member of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase protein family. Neuronal SAP102 is expressed during early brain development and is localized(More)
An 18Gb/s optical data rate is achieved with a commercial GaAs VCSEL by applying rising and falling edge pre-emphasis with a 90nm CMOS driver. The pre-emphasis pulse shape can be digitally adjusted with time resolution less than one bit period. The TIA receiver has cross-coupled cascodes to increase the amplifier gain/bandwidth and operates at 12.5Gb/s to(More)
BACKGROUND The threat of a global pandemic posed by outbreaks of influenza H5N1 (1997) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS, 2002), both diseases of zoonotic origin, provoked interest in improving early warning systems and reinforced the need for combining data from different sources. It led to the use of search query data from search engines such as(More)
When imaging tendons and cartilage in a MRI scanner, an increase in signal intensity is observed when they are oriented at 55 degrees with respect to Bo (the "magic angle"). There is a clear clinical importance for considering this effect as part of the diagnosis of orthopaedic and other injury. Experimental studies of this phenomenon have been made harder(More)
OBJECTIVE Electromechanical devices enable increased accuracy in surgical procedures, and the recent development of MRI-compatible mechatronics permits the use of MRI for real-time image guidance. Integrated imaging of resonant micro-coil fiducials provides an accurate method of tracking devices in a scanner with increased flexibility compared to gradient(More)
This paper discusses field experiments in the Air Force Research Laboratory's ongoing Smart Systems for Logistics Command and Control (SSLC2) research program. Spiral 1 of this program included four field experiments conducted in the spring of 2005 at Air Force Reserve/Air National Guard bases in Indiana and Ohio. This paper describes how the(More)
BACKGROUND Although commonly utilized interventions, no studies have directly compared the effectiveness of cervical and thoracic manipulation to mobilization and exercise in individuals with cervicogenic headache (CH). The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of manipulation to mobilization and exercise in individuals with CH. METHODS One(More)

BACKGROUND Reports of outbreaks in Canada and the United States (U.S.) indicate that approximately 50% of all waterborne diseases occur in small non-community drinking water systems (SDWSs). Summarizing these investigations to identify the factors and conditions contributing to outbreaks is needed in order to help prevent future outbreaks. OBJECTIVES The(More)
