Accurate anatomical localisation of abnormalities observed in brain perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is difficult, but can be improved by correlating data from SPECT and other tomographic imaging modalities. For this purpose we have developed software to register, analyse and display 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime SPECT and(More)
We present an algorithm that solves two related problems in the analysis of metabolic networks stored within a pathway/genome database. (1) The Forward Propagation Problem: given a set of nutrients that are inputs to the metabolic network, what compounds will be produced by the metabolic network? (2) The Backtracking Problem: given the results of a forward(More)
Pharmacologic- and gene-based therapies have historically been developed as two independent therapeutic platforms for cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease. Inhibition of the dysregulated epithelial Na channel (ENaC) is one pharmacologic approach to enhance airway clearance in CF. We investigated pharmacologic approaches to enhance CFTR gene delivery with(More)
A computer system for the analysis of computed tomography and positron emission tomography scans of the brain is described. The system, called TOAP (Tomographic Overlay and Analysis Program), permits the registration of user specified slices from a digital brain atlas with the tomographic images. Regions of interest can then be defined with respect to the(More)
This report describes a computer system that generates reconstructions of film autoradiographs of the cerebral cortex. The reconstructions preserve 4 dimensions of the data including the (1) rostro-caudal and (2) medio-lateral cortical dimensions, (3) cortical thickness and (4) optical density value. This system is especially useful as it removes the(More)
