OBJECTIVE To prepare the Gd-DTPA-loaded poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) microbubbles for both ultrasound imaging and MRI imaging. METHODS Biodegradable high-molecular-weight poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) was used as an encapsulating vehicle to fabricate a contrast agent composed of gadolinium diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) and(More)
Cellular images obtained by light microscopy have been analyzed qualitatively, but there is still a lack of quantitative information about the variations in cellular metabolism of selective substances. A new approach using the multispectral imaging microscope (MIM) to observe rice (Oryza sativa L.) pollen grains is reported. A liquid crystal tunable filter(More)
In this study, we report a facile approach to fabricate epoxy composite incorporated with silicon carbide nanowires (SiC NWs). The thermal conductivity of epoxy/SiC NWs composites was thoroughly investigated. The thermal conductivity of epoxy/SiC NWs composites with 3.0 wt% filler reached 0.449 Wm-1 K-1, approximately a 106% enhancement as compared to neat(More)
In this paper, by using the coloring method, the Bézier-net method and the technique of minimal determining set, a kind of Lagrange interpolation schemes by bivariate C^1cubic splines with boundary conditions on nonuniform type-2triangulations is constructed and a locally supported dual basis of bivariate C^1 cubic splines space with boundary(More)
This work was aimed to investigate the influence of alumina (Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>) nanoparticle surface modification on the micro structure and dielectric properties of epoxy nanocomposites. Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> nanoparticles were first modified by two modifiers [i.e., &#x03B3;-aminopropyl-tri-ethoxysilane (APS), hyperbranched aromatic(More)
BACKGROUND Multimodal contrast agents usually containing two or more signal components can be used for several imaging modalities. Thus, complimentary information can be obtained by using just one kind of contrast agents. PURPOSE To investigate the potential of superparamagnetic perfluorooctylbromide nanoparticles (M-PFOBNP) as a multimodal contrast agent(More)
