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 ...


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. ...


Design and performance of a portable positron-sensitive surgical probe

F. Liu; J. R. Saffer; N. S. Lockyer; F. M. Newcomer; J. S. Karp; W. Konenenko 2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Reports the design and performance of a portable positron-sensitive surgical probe. The probe is designed to be sensitive to positrons and insensitive to background gammas including 511 keV. The probe consists of a multi-mode PMT and an 8×8 array of thin 2 mm ×2 mm plastic scintillators coupled 1:1 to GSO crystals. The probe uses three selection criteria to identify ...


Elbow and elbow manipulators are optimal!

Brad Paden; Shankar Sastry 1985 24th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, 1985

We show that the elbow manipulators and their duals are the optimal designs for 6R manipulators. The performance measures used are those of work-volume and a property defined herein called well-connected-workspace. It is shown that a 6R manipulator, M, has maximal work-volume and a well-connected- workspace if and only if M or M* (its dual) is an elbow manipulator.


Initial study with microwave imaging of the axilla to aid breast cancer diagnosis

Ricardo Eleutério; Alexandre Medina; Raquel C. Conceição 2014 USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting (Joint with AP-S Symposium), 2014

Microwave Imaging (MWI) is one of the most promising imaging modalities for breast cancer early screening and monitoring. An important issue that is not commonly addressed in breast microwave imaging literature is the importance of imaging the underarm region - where up to 80% of breast cancer cells can metastasise to [Cameron et al, ANTEM, 1-3, 2010; Patani, Journal of ...
