This paper proposes a visuo-haptic feedback system that can provide haptic feedback to multiple users on an LCD monitor using electrostatic adhesion and built-in capacitive sensors. The prototype system consists of a 40-inch LCD monitor, an ITO electrode sheet arranged on the monitor, and multiple contact pads for electrostatic adhesion. By applying(More)
Myocardial calcification is rare. An 88-year-old man who had previously been diagnosed with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy exhibited left ventricular asynergy on echocardiography before undergoing cholecystectomy. Computed tomography revealed severe calcification in the apical region of the left ventricular myocardium, although the coronary arteries(More)
BACKGROUND Cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) cameras have improved the evaluation of patients with chest pain. However, inferior/inferolateral attenuation artifacts similar to those seen with conventional Anger cameras persist. We added prone acquisitions and CT attenuation correction (CTAC) to the standard supine image acquisition and analyzed the resulting(More)
Myxoma is a common benign cardiac tumor that may rarely cause an acute myocardial infarction. A 77-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with chest pain. Electrocardiography showed an ST elevation in leads V3-6. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed an ovoid mass with fragmentation in the left atrium and hypokinesia of the left ventricular apex.(More)
