Despite use of computed tomography, some lung cancer patients are found to have unresectable disease at surgery, or they present early with metastases. We studied whether whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG) would improve the preoperative detection of metastases. We retrospectively analysed 34 patients with(More)

Joel has assisted in the development of the Locata receiver and testing of the Locata technology. Other current research interests include pseudolites, GPS receiver firmware customisation and high precision kinematic GPS positioning. a Doctor of(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing use of therapeutic aerosols in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. Few studies have measured aerosol delivery to the lungs under these conditions with adequate experimental methods. Hence this study was performed to measure pulmonary aerosol deposition and to determine the reproducibility of the method of measurement(More)

Since December 2000 he has been working as a postdoctoral research fellow with the Satellite Navigation and Positioning (SNAP) group, Joel's current research interests are high precision kinematic GPS positioning, pseudolites and GPS receiver firmware(More)
Thirty caucasian male patients with stable angina were investigated in two groups of nine and one group of 12. Nine normal subjects were also studied. Patients in the first group (on no treatment) underwent symptom-limited exercise electrocardiography at 0800, 1200, and 1600 hours on the same day. Their heart rates and ST segment displacements at 1600 hours(More)
The study compared the pulmonary deposition of nebulised pentamidine when inhaled by way of different nebuliser systems by nine human-immunodeficiency-virus-positive patients with a history of previous Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. Pentamidine, 50 mg or 300 mg, mixed with technetium-99m-labelled human serum albumin in a total volume of 3 ml, was(More)
An estimate of the absolute pulmonary deposition of nebulised pentamidine isethionate was obtained in nine patients with AIDS. Two nebuliser systems were compared, System 22 Mizer (Medic-Aid) and Respirgard II (Marquest), with 50 and 150 mg doses of pentamidine in a 3 ml solution driven by an air flow of 6 l/min with the patient in the sitting position.
