In recent years, intensive investigations have been undertaken to develop nanoparticle-based cancer targeting agents for various imaging modalities, including ultrasound. Thus, diagnostic paradigms are needed to correctly detect the presence of nanoparticles (NPs) in the anatomic districts. Furthermore, it would be desirable to have algorithms for the(More)
In the last decades, minimally invasive technologies have experienced a significant diffusion in various clinical specialties, finding their application in diagnosis and therapy of acute and chronic diseases. In particular early and effective cancer diagnosis is amongst the goals of recent studies focused on the improvement of innovative medical(More)
Silver-haired bats, (Lasionycteris noctivagans) are semi-colonial, migratory tree bats that have infrequent contact with humans. Despite the species rarity, the L. noctivagans rabies variant is the most commonly reported rabies virus variant (RABV) in domestically acquired human rabies cases in the US. Unlike big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) and little(More)
Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) methods for osteoporosis diagnosis potentially provide information about the bone quality and its elastic properties. In this context, a novel ultrasound-based method for spinal and femoral densitometry was developed by our research group. In order to maximize its accuracy, it is very important to properly detect the bone(More)
