This paper describes a real-time surgery planning system using virtual reality techniques. This system allows us to simulate incision of skin and organs which respond as elastic objects with surgical tools in virtual space. Inner structures such as blood vessels and lesions can be seen and manipulated in the simulation. In addition to these functions we(More)
A reference system for accessing anatomical information from a complete 3D structure of the whole body "living human", including 4D cardiac dynamics, was reconstructed with 3D and 4D data sets obtained from normal volunteers. With this system, we were able to produce a human atlas in which sectional images can be accessed from any part of the human body(More)
BACKGROUND High performance liquid chromatography and immunological and enzymatic methods are known as the methods for HbA1c measurement. However, the differences in the principles of the methods may cause slight discrepancies, which become problems especially in the regions where hemoglobinopathies that have high HbF concentrations are commonly seen. In(More)
PURPOSE Currently, the transmitral flow (TMF) pattern is routinely recorded as the first step in the assessment of left ventricular diastolic function. In young, healthy subjects, it is known that the early diastolic flow (E wave) of TMF is larger than the late diastolic flow (A wave). The E/A ratio then gradually decreases with age. This change in the(More)
