Ultra low-power radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag with precision localization is often the enabling technology for location-aware sensor applications. Impulse-Radio Ultra-Wideband (IR-UWB) is a promising technology to fulfill the usage requirements in indoor cluttered environment. An ultra low-power precise UWB-RFID localization system is proposed(More)
Abstract-In this paper, an ultra wideband impulse radio (UWB-IR) transmitter and receiver monolithic microwave integrate circuit (MMIC) for precision localization sensor network is presented. Longer range is achieved with low power consumption at the transmitter by fully exploiting FCC's peak power constraint efficiently. The transmitter and receiver MMIC(More)
Percutaneous thermal ablation has been widely used as a minimally invasive treatment for tumors. Treatment monitoring is essential for preventing complications while ensuring treatment efficacy. Mechanical testing measurements on tissue reveal that tissue stiffness increases with temperature and ablation duration. Different types of imaging methods can be(More)
This study is to investigate a biological activity of Acinetobacter baumannii isolates from sputum specimens of 121 elderly patients with hospital-acquired pneumonia. The ability of the isolates to form biofilms was quantitatively assessed by crystal violet staining, and adhesive property was examined using Giemsa staining. Biofilm-forming ability by the(More)
BACKGROUND Acinetobacter baumannii has been reported increasingly as a significant causative organism of various nosocomial infections, including hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP). The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics of HAP induced by carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii (CRAB) in elderly patients and the in vitro(More)
Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive treatment to thermally destroy tumors. Ultrasound-based electrode-displacement elastography is an emerging technique for evaluating the region of RFA-induced lesions. The angle between the imaging probe and the RFA electrode can influence electrode-displacement elastography when visualizing(More)
In this research, pulse analysis is performed on the data of 241 subjects collected from Department of Cardiology at Shandong Provincial Hospital in China. By taking the dynamic curve fitting, dicrotic notch is located using the third derivatives of the fitted function. Subendocardial Viability Ratio (SEVR), Systolic Time Index (SPTI), and Diastolic Time(More)
The complex molecule in the title compound, [NiBr2(C36H40N2)], has mirror symmetry. The Ni(II) atom and two Br atoms are located on the mirror plane. The Ni(II) atom is four-coordinated by the two Br atoms and two N atoms from an N,N'-bis(2,6-diethyl-4-phenyl-phen-yl)butane-2,3-di-imine ligand in a distorted tetra-hedral geometry. The dihedral angle formed(More)
Advances in methodologies and tools often lead to new insights into cardiovascular diseases. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a well-established diagnostic method that provides high-resolution images of the vessel wall and atherosclerotic plaques. High-frequency (>50 MHz) ultrasound enables the spatial resolution of IVUS to approach that of optical(More)
