A Model of Length Increases of the Pectoralis Major Muscle to Provide Rehabilitation Precautions for Patients after Mastectomy.

C. W. Jansen; W. L. Buford; R. M. Patterson; L. J. Gould 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

A common complication of breast cancer treatment is the development of shoulder stiffness on the affected side. Rehabilitation interventions exist, but scientific guidelines for safe early motion are lacking. A 3-dimensional model of the shoulder and the pectoralis major muscle was used to interactively generate the total muscle excursion during the simulated motions. From these simulation results it can be ...


A digital phantom of the axilla based on the Visible Human Project data set

S. J. McCallum; A. Welch; L. Baker 2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Describes the development of a new digital phantom designed for Monte Carlo simulations of breast cancer and particularly PET imaging of the axillary lymph nodes. The phantom was based on data from the Visible Human Project(R) female data set. The phantom covers the head to diaphragm regions; 17 major tissue types were segmented and 66 individual lymph nodes were identified. ...


Deriving the 12-lead electrocardiogram from four standard leads based on the Frank torso model

D. Wei 2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2001

This paper proposes a lead method and a processing means for monitoring the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) with four standard leads. Leads I, II of the M-L leads and leads V1, V6 of the chest leads are used to record the ECG signals. The ECG waveforms of leads V2 through V5 are derived from the input signals using the least squares ...


Development of diagnostic imaging system for regional lymph node micrometastasis with high-frequency ultrasound

Noriko. Tomita; Sachiko. Horie; Fuki. Oosawa; Yukiko. Watanabe; Rui. Chen; Kosuke. Ohki; Hirohide. Morikawa; Manabu. Fukumoto; Shiro. Mori; Tetsuya. Kodama 2008 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, 2008

It is important of diagnosing not only primary tumors but also metastases accurately. Recently, we have established murine lymph node metastasis model and developed a new method to reconstruct the two- and three-dimensional (2D/3D) vessel structures in the model by using nanobubbles (NBs) and high- frequency ultrasound imaging system. In the present study, we investigated the characteristics of 2D/3D vessel ...


Implementing reconstruction with hand-held gamma cameras

I. N. Weinberg; V. Zawarzin; R. Pani; G. De Vincentes 2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Minimally invasive surgery has spurred development of portable nuclear medicine nonimaging detection products. Although these probes function well in simple anatomic regions (e.g., extremities), more complicated regions (e.g., head and neck, axilla) can present surgeons with difficulties due to the presence of overlapping tissue activity. Conventional gamma cameras, with large camera heads, are not ideal for intraoperative applications. Due to ...
