BACKGROUND Cyclosprin A (CsA) has been widely used clinically to treat the patients who have undergone organ transplantation or acquired autoimmune disease. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of three different doses of CsA (1.5, 7.5, 15 mg/kg body weight) on the skeletal biomechanical proprieties at different anatomic sites in rats.

We extend a recently developed time invariant (TIV) model order search criterion named the optimal parameter search algorithm (OPS) for identification of time varying (TV) autoregressive (AR) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) models. Using the TV algorithm is facilitated by the fact that expanding each TV coefficient onto a finite set of basis(More)
We introduce a new method to estimate reliable time-varying (TV) transfer functions (TFs) and TV impulse response functions. The method is based on TV autoregressive moving average models in which the TV parameters are accurately obtained using the optimal parameter search method which we have previously developed. The new method is more accurate than the(More)
We extend a recently developed algorithm that expands the time-varying parameters onto a single set of basis functions, to multiple sets of basis functions. This feature allows the capability to capture many different dynamics that may be inherent in the system. A single set of basis functions that has its own unique characteristics can best capture(More)
For trauma and orthopedic surgery, maneuvering a mobile C-arm fluoroscope into a desired position to acquire an X-ray is a routine surgical task. The precision and ease of use of the C-arm becomes even more important for advanced interventional imaging techniques such as parallax-free X-ray image stitching. Today's standard mobile C-arms have been modeled(More)
