Rapid blood vessel scan tolerated by claustrophobic patients unable to stand longer tests

(European Society of Cardiology) Doctors have developed a new five-minute procedure to scan the blood vessels which offers hope for claustrophobic patients unable to tolerate the conventional longer test. The research is presented today at CMR 2018.

In this study, two stacked layers of Cu2Se are nanosandwiched with 50 nm thick Yb slab. The films which are prepared by the thermal evaporation technique under vacuum pressure of 10–5 mbar are examined by the X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersion spectroscopy and optical spectrophotometry techniques. The cubic phase of Cu2Se exhibits lattice contraction which results in strained structure and reduction in grain size upon insertion of Yb between two layers of Cu2Se. The nanosandwiching of Yb layer does not influence the optical energy band gap but significantly altered the optical conduc...

Abstract Adsorption of protein molecules into the pores of a porous material is an important process for chromatographic separation of proteins and synthesis of nanoscale biocatalyst systems; however, there are barriers to developing a method for analyzing the process quantitatively. The purpose of this study is to examine the applicability of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) for quantitative analysis of protein adsorption into silica mesopores. For this purpose myoglobin, a globular protein (diameter: 35.2 Å) was selected, and its adsorption onto mesoporous silica powders with uniform pore diameters ...

Authors: Semez G, Luca RE, Cescato A, Faoro V, Mocuţa DE, Todea DCM Abstract The aim of this preliminary study is to histologically evaluate the effects of erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Er:YAG) laser on soft and hard tissues during implant bed preparation, in comparison with bur and cutter in order to observe the following aspects: (i) the shape of the cavity, (ii) the presence of debris, and (iii) structural modification of the cell architecture. Bone temperature changes during the preparation of the implant bed were also measured in order to evaluate thermal damage on soft and hard tissues. Er:YAG laser,...

Abstract Protein interaction and localization studies in plants are a fundamental component of achieving mechanistic understanding of virus:plant interactions at the systems level. Many such studies are conducted using transient expression assays in leaves of Nicotiana benthamiana, the most widely used experimental plant host in virology, examined by laser-scanning confocal microscopy. This chapter provides a workflow for protein interaction and localization experiments, with particular attention to the many control and supporting assays that may also need to be performed. Basic principles of microscopy are introd...

Tracheal collapse is increasingly seen due to the rapidly rising number of computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest performed in hospitals [1]. Since 1993 [2], the CT modality with both inspiratory and expiratory scans has identified numerous patients with excess tracheal collapse during expiration. The patients report symptoms such as dyspnea, cough, and recurrent infections [3] and often they have comorbid lung diseases as well, especially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [4]. The similarity in symptom patterns complicates the distinction between excessive tracheal collapse and other more common lung diseases.

There are few data to inform on the use of response assessment 2-[fluorine-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) following radical radiotherapy without chemotherapy for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). This retrospective study evaluated the accuracy of PET-CT in HNSCC following radical radiotherapy.
