Scleroderma capillary pattern identification using texture descriptors and ensemble classification

Gerald Schaefer; Bartosz Krawczyk; Niraj P. Doshi; Arcangelo Merla 2013 35th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC), 2013

Various connective tissue diseases lead to morphological alternations of blood capillaries. Consequently, observation of the capillaries at the finger nailfold - nailfold capillaroscopy (NC) - is a standard method for diagnosing diseases such as scleroderma or Raynaud's phenomenon. This is typically performed through manual inspection by an expert to lead to a determination of one of the established NC scleroderma ...


Impedance Properties of Metal Electrodes for Chronic Recording from Mammalian Nerves

Richard B. Stein; Dean Charles; Tessa Gordon; Joaquin-Andres Hoffer; Jack Jhamandas IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1978

Over the last few years methods have been developed for recording chronically from mammalian nerves with implanted electrodes contained in silastic cuffs. The impedance of the electrodes and the changes that take place over time were studied. Platinum-iridium electrodes remain stable over long periods of time, whereas the impedance of silver wire electrodes increases and eventually the silver fractures. The ...


Effects of abdominal wall morphology on ultrasonic pulse distortion

L. M. Hinkelman; T. D. Mast; M. J. Orr; R. C. Waag 1997 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium Proceedings. An International Symposium (Cat. No.97CH36118), 1997

Wavefront propagation through the abdominal wall was investigated by measurements employing full-thickness specimens and their individual fat and muscle layers. These measurements confirm that both fat and muscle produce significant wavefront distortion and focus degradation. However, the spatial characteristics of the distortion produced by fat and muscle differ, and the total distortion produced by the abdominal wall is not the ...


Validation of an inflation method for measuring the strength of engineered tissues

M. T. Frey; K. A. Bush; K. L. Billiar IEEE 30th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2004. Proceedings of the, 2004

Living tissue equivalents (LTE), such as fibroblast-populated collagen lattices (CL) and fibrin gels (FG), are biologically-derived models of soil connective tissues that contain both cells and a biopolymer scaffold. These LTEs are becoming increasingly popular for the development of living connective tissue substitutes in the bourgeoning field of tissue engineering. Quantification of the mechanical properties of these engineered tissues is ...


Imaging and quantitative analysis of phosphoinositide 3-kinase signaling in living fibroblasts

I. Schneider; J. Haugh Proceedings of the Second Joint 24th Annual Conference and the Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society] [Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2002

During wound healing, fibroblasts in connective tissue are directed to migrate to sites of clotting by gradients of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). Mammalian cells detect chemical gradients by spatial sensing, in which the cell can differentiate signaling through receptors at its front and rear. The phosphoinositide 3-kinase enzyme generates specific phospholipid second messenger products, 3' phosphoinositides (3' PIs), in the ...

  • Diseases and Injuries of the Central Nervous System Leading to Sensory-Motor Impairment

    Damage to the central and peripheral nervous systems is associated with a loss of motor drive and a defective afferent input to the central nervous system (CNS). This chapter starts with a presentation of neuron injury. The injuries are categorized based on the extent and type of damage to the nerve and the surrounding connective tissue. The chapter addresses sensory - motor deficits that are caused by neuron injury or disease: (a) cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or stroke, which causes impairments due to changes in blood supply to the brain; (b) spinal cord injuries (SCIs), which result in total or partial obstruction of flow of both sensory and motor information between the peripheral and central nervous systems; (c) nontraumatic disorders of the CNS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis); and (d) cerebral palsy (CP). Finally, the chapter presents the incidence of CNS diseases.
