We report on a 13-year-old female with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who exhibited symptoms of severe migraine and familial moyamoya disease. Cerebral magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) showed stenosis and occlusion of the bilateral internal carotid arteries associated with the development of collateral circulation (moyamoya vessels). In a child, as(More)
Conventional clinical scales used for the evaluation of the spasticity have some limitations, and their reliability remains controversial. The aim of this study is to develop a portable spasticity measurement system for quantifying the grade of spasticity based on the K-means clustering algorithm of the tonic stretch reflex threshold (TSRT). Fifteen stroke(More)
Conventional optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems generally have a limited imaging range within a depth of only 1-2 mm and suffers from unwanted noise such as speckle, ghost or mirror noise. To overcome these limitations, we developed a motorized-stage-based OCT system with an extended imaging range, using a common-path Fourier-domain optical(More)
Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy is characterized by clubbing of the digital tips and periosteal reaction of long bones. Most of the cases are associated with malignancy or other conditions such as congenital heart disease, liver cirrhosis, pulmonary fibrosis, biliary atresia, and gastrointestinal polyps. Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy associated with(More)
