Burn depth estimation by use of indocyanine green fluorescence: initial human trial.
Indocyanine green dye (ICG) fluoresces when illuminated by infrared light. After successful trials in a porcine model and with approval of the Massachusetts General Hospital's human studiesExpand
Burn wound assessment in porcine skin using indocyanine green fluorescence.
BACKGROUND An accurate assessment of deep dermal burns within the first week after burn is still an unresolved clinical problem. Infrared-excited fluorescence of indocyanine green was examined as aExpand
Dietary elimination therapy is an effective option for adults with eosinophilic esophagitis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an immune-mediated disorder. Food elimination is an established treatment for children, but data in adults are limited. We aimed to determine theExpand
Delayed anaphylaxis to alpha-gal, an oligosaccharide in mammalian meat
IgE-mediated hypersensitivity refers to immune reactions that can be rapidly progressing and, in the case of anaphylaxis, are occasionally fatal. To that end, identification of the associatedExpand
De-novo onset of eosinophilic esophagitis after large volume allergen exposures.
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic immune-mediated condition believed to have an allergic component, but the timing of the initial allergen triggers that cause the disease is poorlyExpand
A desensitization protocol for the mAb cetuximab.
could be somehow regarded as a disease-specific biomarker: this fact also suggests that HVA, which is a pure IgE-mediated disease, differs in its immunologic regulation from other types of allergicExpand
Dynamic optical property changes: implications for reflectance feedback control of photocoagulation.
During laser treatment, coagulation affects the optical properties of the tissue. In particular, the formation of a white lesion significantly increases the scattering coefficient. This change in theExpand
Digital tracking and control of retinal images
A system has been developed to track a specific lesion coordinate on the retinal surface and provide corrective signals to maintain laser position on the coordinate. Expand
Reflectance feedback control of photocoagulation in vivo.
OBJECTIVE The objective of this research was to build a real-time feedback system that controlled lesion size. Two-dimensional reflectance images were acquired with a charge-coupled device cameraExpand
Computer-aided retinal photocoagulation system.
Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin's Biomedical Engineering Laser Laboratory and the U. S. Air Force Academy are developing a computer-assisted system to rapidly and precisely place photocoagulation lesions on the retina for the treatment of various retinal disorders. Expand
