— In medical diagnostic imaging, an X-ray CT scanner or a MRI system have been widely used to examine 3D shapes or internal structures of living organisms or bones. However, these apparatuses are generally very expensive and of large size. A prior arrangement is also required before an examination, and thus, it is not suitable for an urgent fracture(More)
The cyanobacterial circadian oscillator can be reconstituted in vitro by mixing three clock proteins, KaiA, KaiB and KaiC, with ATP. KaiC is the only protein with circadian rhythmic activities. In the present study, we tracked the complex formation of the three Kai proteins over time using blue native (BN) polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE), in which(More)
BACKGROUND Synovial fluid was collected prior to and at 3 to 4 days after ACL reconstruction to investigate the correlation between inflammatory cytokine levels in the acute phase after surgery and physical functional recovery at 3 months postoperatively. METHODS  For this purpose, 79 patients with ACL reconstruction using semitendinosus tendons were(More)
In this study, we evaluated the image distortion of three magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems with magnetic field strengths of 0.4 T, 1.5 T and 3 T, during stereotactic irradiation of the brain. A quality assurance phantom for MRI image distortion in radiosurgery was used for these measurements of image distortion. Images were obtained from a 0.4-T MRI(More)
