Investigation on deadtime characteristics for simultaneous emission-transmission data acquisition in PET

Yuan-Chuan Tai; A. Chatziioannou; M. Dahlbom; E. J. Hoffman 1997 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, 1997

Modern PET systems utilize rotating rod sources and sinogram windowing for transmission scan and are capable of simultaneous emission-transmission data acquisition. Count rate capability of a PET system using EGO is mainly limited by deadtime of block detectors. Deadtime of a EGO block detector is directly associated with the rate of single events. In a simultaneous acquisition, moving rod sources ...


Correlation between shock induced response duration and success of defibrillation

O. H. Tovar; P. P. Bransford; J. B. Moubarak; K. B. Milne; A. E. Amanna; J. L. Jones Proceedings of 16th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1994

Although refractory period extension has been proposed as a basic mechanism for defibrillation, the relation between successful defibrillation and refractory period extension has not been determined. The authors tested the hypothesis that successful defibrillation correlates with longer shock induced responses compared with unsuccessful defibrillation. Sixty five episodes of fibrillation were induced in isolated rabbit hearts (n=5). After 10 seconds of ...


Vectorial control of cell movement by the design of microelasticity distribution of biomaterial surface

Satoru Kidoaki; Takehisa Matsuda 2008 International Symposium on Micro-NanoMechatronics and Human Science, 2008

The understanding and realization of directional cell movement towards a harder region of a cell culture substrate surface, so-called mechanotaxis, may provide a solid basis for a functional artificial extracellular matrix, enabling manipulation and elucidation of cell motility. The photolithographic surface microelasticity patterning method was developed for fabricating a cell-adhesive hydrogel with a microelasticity-gradient (MEG) surface using photocurable styrenated gelatin ...


Lab on a chip fluorescence measurements — From single biomolecules to testing standards

Samuel M. Stavis CLEO: 2013, 2013

Faint fluorescent signals from within lab on a chip devices may be overwhelmed by autofluorescent background noise from nearby surfaces and bulk materials. This measurement challenge becomes increasingly relevant as plastic chips are commercialized and standardized.


Biochemical Responses of Nano-Pillar Gate Field-Effect Devices

Y. Miyahara; C. Kataoka-Hamai; H. Inoue; T. Sakata; A. Matsumoto; N. Sato; I. Makino 2007 IEEE Sensors, 2007

We have developed biochemical field effect devices with nano-pillar array structure on the gate. The pH responses of the field effect device with nano- pillar structure were nonlinear. It seems that the plasma treatment of the Si3N4 surface as well as a mixed composition of Si3N4 and SiO2 may play an important role for the nonlinearity of the pH response. ...

  • Biophysics of the Generation of EMG Signals

    This chapter describes the basic concepts of generation and detection of EMG signals. Specific emphasis is devoted to the generation of muscle fiber action potentials at the fiber end plates, their propagation along the sarcolemma, and their extinction at the tendons. The chapter addresses the topics of crosstalk between nearby muscles and selectivity of the recording systems. It discusses the relationships between muscle force and the surface EMG. The EMG signal is generated by the electrical activity of the muscle fibers active during a contraction. The signal sources are the depolarizing and repolarizing zones of the muscle fibers. EMG signal features depend on a number of anatomical, physical, and detection system parameters. Considering all the factors related to the volume conductor and the signal sources that influence the characteristics of the EMG signal, a reliable relation between EMG amplitude and force needs a subject specific and condition specific calibration.
