Bisphosphonate induced osteonecrosis of the jaw (BONJ) is a complication in patients taking bisphosphonate (BP) that affects their quality of life and compliance. In this cohort study, patients with multiple myeloma (MM) on intravenous BP therapy were enrolled over 1 year. Demographic and clinical data and genotyping of 10 single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
The underlying reason for the local hyperthermia changes produced after a stimulus is not very well known and the relationship between local temperature changes and other physiological parameters has never been established. Current local temperature measurements are not completely accurate over time due to the physical constraints of the sensor, such as(More)
This fMRI work studies brain activity of healthy volunteers who manipulated a virtual object in the context of a digital game by applying two different control methods: using their right hand or using their gaze. The results show extended activations in sensorimotor areas, not only when participants played in the traditional way (using their hand) but also(More)
Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) measures concentration changes in both oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin providing three-dimensional images of local brain activations. A pilot study, which compares both DOT and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) volumes through t-maps given by canonical statistical parametric mapping (SPM) processing for both data(More)
A low power optical communication interface is presented. It has been designed for an optical link between a thousand of microrobotic units in a swarm. The robots, of mm 3-size, will be deployed in an arena of A4 paper size with controlled illumination conditions. The communication between robots is done via IR light. The interface deals with variations of(More)
This paper presents an alternative sensor fusion application in order to improve the accuracy on systems that use strapdown type inertial navigation. A neuro-fuzzy approach is shown, where the information captured by a camera is fused with the values obtained from a low cost inertial measurement unit. Several experimental trials have been conducted with(More)
