We present a method to improve the quality of cone-beam to-mographic images computed from an intra-operative C-arm scan by adding information from an anatomical atlas. Limited range of C-arm view angles leads to reconstruction ar-tifacts and poor anatomical detail. We propose to complete the missing views with simulated projections of a statistical(More)
Metal organic materials are widely investigated to find their suitability for nonlinear optical applications due to the advantage of combined organic and inorganic properties. In this work benzimidazole based metal organic thin films of dichlorobis (1H-Benzimidazole) Co(II) and dichlorobis (1H-Benzimidazole) Cu(II) were deposited by chemical bath deposition(More)
Glycine picrate (GP), an organic material, was synthesized and successfully grown by solution growth method. Cell parameters of the grown crystals were obtained from the single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and the presence of functional groups was identified by FTIR study. Its optical properties were examined by UV-vis-NIR analysis, which shows that(More)
Single crystals of the organic NLO material, benzaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (BTSC) monohydrate, were grown by slow evaporation method. Solubility of BTSC monohydrate was determined in ethanol at different temperatures. The grown crystals were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis to determine the cell parameters and by FT-IR technique(More)
Single crystals of gamma-glycine were grown from a mixture of glycine, water and lithium bromide. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis confirmed the growth of gamma-glycine phase. Presence of various functional groups of gamma-glycine was identified by FTIR spectrum. Optical absorbance spectrum recorded in the wavelength range of UV-vis-NIR revealed(More)
C-arms are well suited for obtaining cone-beam projections intra-operatively. Due to the compact size of the detector used, the data are usually truncated within the field of view. As a result, direct application of a standard cone-beam reconstruction algorithm gives rise to undesirable artifacts and incorrect values in the reconstructed image volume. When(More)
Theoretical calculations on the solvent accessible surface area of the commonly occurring glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) have been carried out by employing the solvent accessibility technique of Lee and Richards. The results indicate that the average variation of solvent accessible surface area (ASA) for the different atoms is in the range of 2-28 A2. The(More)
Nonlinear optical single crystals of ammonium pentaborate (APB) were grown by the slow cooling method from aqueous solution. Grown crystal was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and FT-IR spectral analysis. Perfection of the grown crystal was evaluated by high-resolution X-ray diffractometry (HRXRD). The effect of nylon threading on the(More)
Design and construction of the vertical dynamic gradient freeze (VDGF) system operating in the temperature range from 50 °C to 500 °C for growing organic single crystals are described. The design of VDGF system consists of furnace, control system, translation assembly, and image capturing device. Furnace has been constructed with eight zones controlled(More)
