BarbaAbstractWhen ultrasonic stimulation is applied to plant seeds it may promote the development of new adaptive characteristics during germination, thus providing an alternative to regulate nutritional and physicochemical attributes of germinated seeds. However, there is rather limited information concerning high-intensity ultrasound (HIU) effects on the germination process of crop seeds as foodstuff. This investigation aimed at examining the e...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Results in Physics, Volume 15Author(s): Xiaoyu Wang, Zheng Zhang, Yu Chen, Yinglong LiAbstractCavitation, the process of formation and collapsing of vapor cavities is of great importance to material erosion degradation and enhanced physicochemical process by ultrasound. Commonly the ultrasonic cavitation bench test is utilized to study the cavitation correlate properties of different materials or coolants, which is time consuming and costly compared to numerical tests and lack of micro perspective analysis. Therefore, a mathematical model is needed to study cavitation bubble dynamics ...

CONCLUSION: Cannulation trauma at the initiation of haemodialysis could potentially be reduced with a strategy of incremental haemodialysis using single-needle treatment supported with duplex ultrasonography assessment to 'map' the vascular access as a guide for clinicians prior to cannulation initiation.

CONCLUSION: All three commonly used approaches for USG-guided internal jugular vein cannulation, that is, short axis, long axis, and oblique axis, are comparable in terms of clinical utility and safety. There is insufficient evidence to recommend one approach over another for this purpose. PMID: 31423893 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective this study was to obtain extracts, using ultrasound and enzymes, of leaves of Psidium. cattleianum Sabine, collected in the summer and winter, and evaluate the antioxidant, allelopathic and antimicrobial activities. Photomicrographs of leaf structure were obtained by SEM. The phenolic compounds content (TPC) and the antioxidant activity were determined. The allelopathic activity was verified in bioassays for each of the extracts against the test plant (Lactuca sativa). The antimicrobial activity was determined against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial species. It was evaluated the use of extracts as d...

However, designing a method with better despeckling performance and lower algorithm complexity is still an active pursuit. In this paper, we propose a novel local spatial filtering framework named as the guided trilateral filter (GTF) to implement restoration of a noisy image with a well-fitting statistical distribution model. The GTF is derived as the local maximum ...

Authors: Chen Y, Jiang X, Liu R, Zhang Z, Luo F, Qi S, Xu Y Abstract BACKGROUND Although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-targeted biopsy and saturation biopsy can improve the accuracy of prostate biopsy, transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy is still the cornerstone for diagnosis of prostate cancer. However, it is not clear whether it is necessary to perform the same TRUS-guided biopsy scheme for patients with different prostate specific antigen (PSA) or prostate specific antigen density (PSAD) levels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the optimal core number for specific suspected prostate ...

ConclusionsMRI is the best predictor of tumor size in breast cancer. Histologic type and tumor size are key parameters when estimating tumor size and should be taken into account when planning surgery. Patient age does not interfere with the interpretation of imaging tests.ResumenIntroducciónEl objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar qué prueba de imagen de las empleadas para medir el tamaño del cáncer de mama primario preoperatorio (mamografía, ecografía o resonancia magnética (RM)) se correlacionó mejor con el tamaño del tumor en la pieza quirúrgica posto...
