The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of various dosages of testosterone (T) delivered in a sustained manner by means of a tricalcium phosphate-lysine (TCPL) delivery system on morphological changes of prostatic tissue using adult male rats as a model. In this experiment, adult male rats (250-300 g BW) were randomly divided into five equal groups (n=8). ...

Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, None

Two methods of water/fat suppression are investigated. The first, selective excitation, suppresses approximately 70% of fat or water signals. The second method, a phase-sensitive modification of the Dixon technique, achieves more than 95% fat or water suppression. Fat-suppressed data acquisition is applied to musculoskeletal and CNS imaging. In comparison to standard 3-D images, these sequences provide an enhanced demonstration of ...


A Nonlinear Time-Varying Mathematical Analog of the Gluco-Corticoid Control

The basic characteristics contributing to the nonlinear time-varying gluco- corticoid control mechanism in 300-gram male rats fasted 18 hours have been formulated. Intact animal time responses of the plasma levels of corticosterone to intraperitoneally injected doses of 50, 200, and 500 μg/kg simulated on an analog computer were compared with the experimental results. Nonlinear time-dependent characteristics of the hypothalamic-hypophyseal complex, ...

A pattern recognition system for computer classification of cortisol time series into the normal class and subclasses of Cushing's syndrome with different etiologies was developed. Discriminatory features are extracted from Fourier analysis and Karhunen-Loeve expansion coefficient or cortisol time series. Decision functions are trained by the least mean square error (LMSE) algorithm and tested by the jackknife test procedure on ...

We describe transnasal skull base surgery, including the current clinical procedure and the ways in which a robotic system has the potential to enhance the current standard of care. The available workspace is characterized by segmenting medical images and reconstructing the available 3D geometry. We then describe thin, ??tentacle-like?? robotic tools with shafts constructed from concentric tube robots, and an ...
