Computerized projection and display of hundreds of sequential ultrasonic images can yield molded 3-D images of an object's surface that are useful in exact disease diagnosis.
Intracellular vesicular transport is important for photoreceptor function and maintenance. However, the mechanism underlying photoreceptor degeneration in response to vesicular transport defects is unknown. Here, we report that photoreceptors undergo apoptosis in a zebrafish β-soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein (β-SNAP) mutant.… (More)
This paper presents 3D model generation of cattle by shape-from-silhouette method for ICT agriculture. The use of advanced ICT has any possibility to improve various agricultural activities. The authors have such a project whose targets are beef cattle. The goal of the project is to capture 3D shape information of cattle for the estimation of their body… (More)
The ATP1 gene (YBL099w) encoding the F 1 F 0-ATPase complex subunit of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is present on the left arm close to the telomere of chromosome II, and only one copy was reported by the Genome Project. Recently, we reported that three ATP1s designated ATP1a, ATP1b and ATP1c are located on chromosome II, with different distances between ATP1a… (More)
The goal of this study is to measure the impact of electronic medical records on both time efficiency and the work process with regard to outpatient care. In this study, we focus on examining the pre-assessment ahead of the introduction of the electronic medical records procedure applying new methodology, time process study. We extracted 12 use-cases and 82… (More)
Patient transportation is one of the daily and frequent jobs in the hospital, however, it requires much strain and time of nurses. We carried out continuous-observation time and motion study (TMS) on the second time scale with recording by the other recorder in four wards of a cardiovascular disease hospital. Based on the recorded data, we carried out time… (More)
