Biopsy preparation for flow analysis using microfabricated disaggregation blades

A. K. Miller; M. L. Stanton; C. A. Sanchez; Xiaohong Li; S. C. McQuaide IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering, 2005., 2005

An epithelial tissue biopsy processor that produces stained cell nuclei as its output using microfabricated disaggregation structures is presented. Stained cell nuclei produced by the processor can be used for a variety of diagnostic tests to assess the presence of cancer or the risk of developing cancer in the future. To better understand the biopsy disaggregation process, biopsies prepared by ...


A Novel Revolutionary Surgical Device for TransOral Incisionless Surgery: EsophyX™ Used for Endoluminal Fundoplication (ELF) in Patients Suffering of Reflux Disease

Adrian Lobontiu; Daniel Loisance 2009 Advanced Technologies for Enhanced Quality of Life, 2009

Summary form only given: A huge revolutionary step toward surgery with no incisions, through natural orifices has been done in last two years. The novel endoluminal fundoplication (ELF) technique using a Trans-Oral Incisionless and fastener-deploying device (EsophyXtrade, EndoGastric Solutions) was developed and evaluated for feasibility, safety and the treatment of gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) in a series of animal and ...


Application of noise reduction techniques for alaryngeal speech enhancement

D. Cole; S. Sridharan; M. Moody; S. Geva TENCON '97. IEEE Region 10 Annual Conference. Speech and Image Technologies for Computing and Telecommunications., Proceedings of IEEE, 1997

A hybrid noise reduction method using both spectral subtraction and root cepstral subtraction procedures is applied to speech produced using an artificial larynx (electro-larynx). The noise reduction suppresses the direct path noise of the electro-larynx device and provides an improvement in mean opinion score


Expression Analysis of Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 2 (stat2) Gene in Esophageal, Gastric and Lung Cancer Tissues

Guang Gao; Huiling Wu; Yan Wu; Wenbing Wang 2008 2nd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, 2008

To further investigate the molecular mechanism of esophageal carcinogenesis, screen out and validate the genes expressed differently in esophageal cancer. mRNA differential display (DD-PCR) was employed to search differently expressed fragments, some of which were cloned and sequenced. By homology analysis in GenBank, corresponding homologous genes of those fragments were found. The corresponding genes of those differently expressed fragments were ...


Predicting air-balloon and water-filled infant catheter frequency responses

C. G. Hartford; J. M. van Schalkwyk; G. G. Rogers; M. J. Turner IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 1997

The authors test the validity of the assumption that fluid-filled catheters fit a second-order system. They conclude that air-balloon catheter (A-BC) and water-filled catheter (W-FC) frequency responses do not adequately fit second- order systems. This finding casts doubt on the validity of defining and applying second-order system mathematical models to predict such catheter- manometers' frequency responses. Second-order fitted curve:original recorded ...
