A 3-D augmented reality navigation system using autostereoscopic images was developed for MRI-guided surgery. The 3-D images are created by employing an animated autostereoscopic image, integral videography (IV), which provides geometrically accurate 3-D spatial images and reproduces motion parallax without using any supplementary eyeglasses or tracking(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Gross-total surgery under intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a promising method of glioma removal. The purpose of this article is intraoperative measurement of resected tumor volume in MRI-guided glioma surgery using semiautomatic image segmentation to unbiased resection rate control. MATERIALS AND METHODS A newly(More)
INTRODUCTION Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways, involving oxidative stress. Upon oxidative stress, glutathione covalently binds to protein thiols to protect them against irreversible oxidation. This posttranslational modification, known as protein S-glutathionylation, can be reversed by glutaredoxin 1 (Glrx1) under physiological(More)
This study aimed to investigate bronchiolar catalase expression and its relationship with smoking and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in humans and to determine the dynamic change of bronchiolar catalase expression in response to cigarette smoke in mice. Lung tissue was obtained from 36 subjects undergoing surgery for peripheral tumours,(More)
AIM The maintenance and improvement of self-rated health is important for prolonging healthy life expectancy in a well-aged society. In the present study, we examined the effectiveness of beauty care on self-rated health among community-dwelling older people through a quasi- randomized controlled trial by propensity score matching (PSM). METHOD One(More)
BACKGROUND Airway occlusion pressure 0.1 s after the start of inspiratory flow (P0.1) is used as an index of respiratory motor output; however, the reliability of P0.1 in this capacity has not been sufficiently investigated. Therefore, the aim of our study was to examine the reliability of P0.1. METHODS Eleven healthy subjects (7 men and 4 women)(More)
BACKGROUND Pleural sarcoidosis is not a rare disease, and some patients with sarcoidosis experience chest pain, although the cause is often unknown. Various studies have indicated that fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is useful for diagnosing and monitoring sarcoidosis. CASE A 62-year-old man noted left-side dominant chest and(More)
