Cone beam versus conventional computed tomography angiography volume measurement in partial splenic embolization.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(5):e14312

When performing partial splenic arterial embolization (PSE), it can be difficult to determine the embolization ratio based on 2-dimensional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) image diagnosis alone. Therefore, at our department, we conduct computed tomography (CT) imaging intraoperatively and postoperatively to determine whether the planned embolization has been achieved. In recent years, developments in interventional radiology devices have enabled diagnostic imaging using cone beam CT. Read More

I see your false colours: how artificial stimuli appear to different animal viewers.

Interface Focus 2019 Feb 14;9(1):20180053. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA.

The use of artificially coloured stimuli, especially to test hypotheses about sexual selection and anti-predator defence, has been common in behavioural ecology since the pioneering work of Tinbergen. To investigate the effects of colour on animal behaviour, many researchers use paints, markers and dyes to modify existing colours or to add colour to synthetic models. Because colour perception varies widely across species, it is critical to account for the signal receiver's vision when performing colour manipulations. Read More

Correlation Between the Sites of Onset of Basal Cell Carcinoma and the Embryonic Fusion Planes in the Auricle.

Clin Med Insights Oncol 2018 7;12:1179554918817328. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Advanced Technologies for Regenerative Medicine and Inductive Surgery Research Center, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.

Objectives: This study aims at the identification of the distribution of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) in the auricle in correlation with the currently most credited sites of the embryonic fusion planes of the auricle.

Methods: An overall number of 69 patients with 72 BCCs of the auricle were enrolled in the study over a period of 14 years, from June 2003 to October 2017. All the cases underwent medical preoperative digital photography and the specific location of each BCC was coded on an original full-size anatomical diagram of the auricle derived from the reports by Streeter, Wood-Jones, Park, Porter, and Minoux showing the currently most credited sites of the embryonic fusion planes arbitrarily featured as two 5-mm-wide ribbon-like areas: (1) the hyoid-mandibular fusion plane (HM-FP) running from the upper margin of the tragus toward the concha and then deflecting toward the lower margin of the tragus and (2) the free ear fold-hyoid fusion plane (FEFH-FP) running from the cranial-most portion of the helix to the mid-portion of the ascending helix.

Evdokimov Moscow State Medical Stomatological University, Ministry of Health of the Russia, Moscow, Russia, 127473 ,Department of Forensic Medicine, N.I. Pirogov, Russian National Research Medical University, Ministry of Health of the Russia, Moscow, Russia, 117997.

The article reports a case of the application of the thee-dimensional models of an injury on a corpse and of a blunt trace-forming object with which it was presumably inflicted for the identification purposes. The models were constructed based on a series of the digital photographs processed with the use of the specialized software program. The work with the application of the three dimensional models made it possible to avoid disfiguring of the corpse, to determine the stages and conditions of infliction of the injury in the graphic editor software environment, and to arrive at the conclusion about the parts of the traumatic agent with which the injury was caused.

Holographic optical trapping Raman micro-spectroscopy for non-invasive measurement and manipulation of live cells.

Opt Express 2018 Sep;26(19):25211-25225

We present a new approach for combining holographic optical tweezers with confocal Raman spectroscopy. Multiple laser foci, generated using a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator, are individually used for both optical trapping and excitation of spontaneous Raman spectroscopy from trapped objects. Raman scattering from each laser focus is spatially filtered using reflective apertures on a digital micro-mirror device, which can be reconfigured with flexible patterns at video rate. Read More
