Ventricular myocardium has a complex three-dimensional structure which has previously been inferred from two-dimensional images. We describe a technique for imaging the 3D organization of myocytes in conjunction with the collagen network in extended blocks of myocardium. Rat hearts were fixed with Bouin's solution and perfusion-stained with picrosirius red.(More)
EXTENDED ABSTRACT New South Wales (NSW) coastal areas are under increasing environmental pressure from development and rapid population growth. Soil landscape mapping and land capability assessment have an important role in coastal planning and the development decision making processes. Soil landscape mapping is a regional planning tool that identifies soil(More)
The misuse of prescription opiates is on the rise with combination therapies (e.g. acetaminophen or NSAIDs) resulting in severe liver and kidney damage. In recent years, cannabinoid receptors have been identified as potential modulators of pain and rewarding behaviors associated with cocaine, nicotine and ethanol in preclinical models. Yet, few studies have(More)
Lumpectomy coupled with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy is commonly used to treat breast cancer patients. We are developing an enhanced thermal IR imaging technique that has the potential to provide real-time imaging to guide tissue excision during a lumpectomy by delineating tumor margins. This enhanced thermal imaging method is a combination of IR(More)
Zinc may be extremely toxic when absorbed from a metallic foreign body retained in the stomach. The most common cause of zinc toxicosis in dogs appears associated with accidental ingestion of copper-coated zinc pennies minted after 1982. In a retrospective literature search, zinc toxicosis due to penny ingestion was reported in 5 dogs, 2 of which died(More)
Heparin-associated thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (HATT) syndrome is a severe complication of heparin therapy. Since patients admitted for rehabilitation are at high risk for deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, prophylactic doses of subcutaneous heparin are frequently used. We report the case of a 73-year-old woman with a history of heparin(More)
Intramuscular phenol neurolysis is a well-known procedure used to decrease spasticity and improve function in patients who have failed to respond to more conservative forms of intervention. Traditionally, this approach has been limited to spasticity reduction in limb muscles, and its use in managing spasticity of the facial muscles has not been described in(More)
