We present the first clinical results obtained with a novel technique: the three-dimensional [3D] roadmap. The major difference from the standard 2D digital roadmap technique is that the newly developed 3D roadmap is based on a rotational angiography acquisition technique with the two-dimensional [2D] fluoroscopic image as an overlay. Data required for an(More)
CI-976, a new trimethoxy fatty acid anilide, is a potent and specific inhibitor of liver and intestinal acyl coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) in vitro. Several in vivo approaches were used to determine the efficacy and sites of action of this compound in rats. CI-976 decreased non-high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and increased(More)
Rigorous and efficient numerical methods are presented for simulation of acoustic propagation in a medium where the absorption is described by relaxation processes. It is shown how FFT-based algorithms can be used to simulate ultrasound images in pulse-echo mode. General expressions are obtained for the complex wavenumber in a relaxing medium. A fit to(More)
The advantage of 2D-3D image registration methods versus direct image-to-patient registration, is that these methods generally do not require user interaction (such as manual annotations), additional machinery or additional acquisition of 3D data. A variety of intensity-based similarity measures has been proposed and evaluated for different applications.(More)

Spatial and soft tissue information provided by magnetic resonance imaging can be very valuable during image-guided procedures, where usually only real-time two-dimensional (2D) x-ray images are available. Registration of 2D x-ray images to three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, acquired prior to the procedure, can provide optimal(More)
Serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD), 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [24,25-(OH)2D], and 1 alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1, 25-(OH)2D] were measured in 30 ambulatory adult epileptic patients during long-term anticonvulsant treatment with phenytoin, phenobarbital, or carbamazepine. For the entire group, serum 24,25-(OH)2D was decreased (p less than(More)
