Phase–contrast X–ray computed tomography for observing biological soft tissues
A means of observing biological tissues in three dimensions using a novel X–ray computed tomography (CT) by modifying the phase–contrast technique, which was able to clearly differentiate the cancer lesion from the normal tissue.
Blood vessels: depiction at phase-contrast X-ray imaging without contrast agents in the mouse and rat-feasibility study.
The ability of phase-contrast x-ray imaging to depict blood vessels without contrast agents was tested by observing livers of a mouse and a rat with synchrotron x rays, and trees of blood vessels were revealed on the image.
Head Motion and Correction Methods in Resting-state Functional MRI
The aim of the present study was to review head motion artifact with RS-fMRI, individual and patient population differences in head motion, and correction methods for head motion artifacts with RS, and development of a more effective correction method would improve the accuracy of RS- fMRI analysis.
Phase-contrast x-ray computed tomography for observing biological specimens and organic materials
A novel three‐dimensional x‐ray imaging method has been developed by combining a phase‐contrast x‐ray imaging technique with x‐ray computed tomography. This phase‐contrast x‐ray computed tomography
Phase I clinical study of NMK36: a new PET tracer with the synthetic amino acid analogue anti-[18F]FACBC
NMK36 has favorable characteristics for imaging brain and pelvic tumors, such as low brain uptake, slow urinary excretion, and high in vivo stability, and the findings of this study indicate that NMK36 is well tolerated.
X-ray fluorescent CT imaging of cerebral uptake of stable-iodine perfusion agent iodoamphetamine analog IMP in mice.
Using X-ray fluorescent computed tomography (XFCT), the in vivo and ex vivo cerebral distribution of a stable-iodine-labeled cerebral perfusion agent, iodoamphetamine analog (127I-IMP), has been
Phase-Contrast Tomographic Imaging Using an X-ray Interferometer.
Feasibility of phase-contrast imaging using a two-crystal X-ray interferometer was studied aiming at in vivo observation in the future and structures characteristic of the tissues were revealed in the phase- Contrast tomograms.
Morphogenesis of the Inner Ear at Different Stages of Normal Human Development
The position of the inner ear was stable throughout the period of observation on the lateral to ventral side of the rhombencephalon, caudal to the pontine flexure, and adjacent to the auditory ganglia, indicating that the orientation of the outer ear changes during growth to adulthood.
Phase-Contrast X-Ray Imaging Using an X-Ray Interferometer for Biological Imaging
Since the discovery of X rays, one has benefited from X-ray imaging using its penetrating property. Nowadays, its application expanded into wide variety of fields such as medicine. The contrast
Effect of Long-Term Storage and Thermal History on the Gas Content of Natural Gas Hydrate Pellets under Ambient Pressure
The use of natural gas hydrate (NGH) as a natural gas transportation and storage medium is expected to meet further energy demand in the near future. To exploit NGH for industrial porposes, it is
