This paper presents a fast dynamic imaging method which is characterized by the acquisition of two high-resolution reference images and a sequence of low-resolution dynamic data sets. Image reconstruction is accomplished using a generalized series based algorithm. Experimental results demonstrate that dynamic images with high temporal resolution can be(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Manual whole-body and head-on-body rotational testing of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) is comparable to conventional rotary chair methods with and without visual fixation from 0.025 to 1 Hz. STUDY DESIGN Summary of four previously published trials from our laboratory and a fifth prospective blinded study comparing whole-body and(More)
The currently accepted "gold standard" for rotational testing of the vestibulo-ocular reflex uses a servo-controlled chair for sinusoidal whole-body rotation. Previous work in our laboratory has shown good concordance between conventional rotational chair testing and head-on-body (or "head-shake") testing for gain and phase values of the vestibulo-ocular(More)
During the last 10 years, computerized dynamic posturography has yielded various patterns of sway on the sensory organization test and the motor control test that have been associated with a variety of organic balance disorders. Some aspects of performance during computerized dynamic posturography, however, are under conscious control. Voluntary movements(More)
We describe the clinical and laboratory features of 13 patients with bilateral loss of peripheral vestibular sensitivity of no known cause. In the office, screening for this condition was possible using illegible e-testing and examination of the patient for refixation saccades after brisk head movements while attempting visual fixation. Diagnosis was(More)
Broad-frequency rotational chair testing is employed in clinical and research settings to evaluate the response of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) over a range of frequencies. Accurate computation of the gain and phase of the VOR is dependent upon the assumption that the subject's head is rigidly coupled to the rotating chair over the range of frequencies(More)
The relationship between percentage M-protein decrement and survival is assessed in 134 multiple myeloma patients. The correlation did not achieve statistical significance (P = 0.069). Multivariate analysis using the Cox proportional hazards model, including a number of previously recognised prognostic factors, showed only percentage M-protein decrement,(More)
A positron emission tomography study using [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose was undertaken to identify and quantitate whether diaschisis occurred in cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, or thalamus, as well as in cerebellar cortex and dentate nuclei in patients with malignant glioma. The relationship between diaschisis in these cerebral structures and clinically(More)
A hallmark of targeted cancer therapies is selective toxicity among cancer cell lines. We evaluated results from a viability screen of over 200,000 small molecules to identify two chemical series, oxalamides and benzothiazoles, that were selectively toxic at low nanomolar concentrations to the same 4 of 12 human lung cancer cell lines. Sensitive cell lines(More)
Standardization of rotational chair testing across laboratories has not been achieved because of differences in test protocol and analysis algorithms. The Interlaboratory Rotational Chair Study Group was formed to investigate these differences. Its first study demonstrated significant variability in calculated results using actual patient data files. No(More)
