SU‐E‐T‐756: The Verification of Accuaracy in Dose Distribution Using Superpositon and Convolution Algorithm including Couch for TomoDirect
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to verify the accuracy of superposition and convolution(S/C) algorithm for the dose distribution which would be perturbed by the carbon fiber couch(CFC) focusedExpand
2D Sparse Array Transducer Optimization for 3D Ultrasound Imaging
A 3D ultrasound image is desired in many medical examinations. However, the implementation of a 2D array, which is needed for a 3D image, is challenging with respect to fabrication, interconnectionExpand
The neuroprotective effect of mycophenolic acid via anti-apoptosis in perinatal hypoxic-ischemic brain injury
Purpose : Mycophenolic acid (MPA), the active metabolite of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), is a potent inhibitor of inosine-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH), a new immunosuppressive drug used. ItExpand
