Ovulation Detection by Internal Cranial Temperature Measurements

A. J. Adducci; T. E. Weidenkopf; D. J. Garwacki IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1965

A simple method for recording a patient's internal cranial temperature is described. Using these measurements it is shown that the drop and rapid rise in basal temperature indicative of ovulation can be easily detected and recorded. The superiority of cranial temperature over oral temperature is demonstrated by indicating the occurrence of ovulation one full day before a like indication in ...


Maintenance of prostatic function by means of exogenous sustained delivery of testosterone in castrated male rats

W. Cavett; M. Tucci; Z. Cason; L. Lemos; A. Tsao; H. Benghuzzi Proceedings of the 1997 16 Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference, 1997

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). ...


A multiscale model for the selection process of ovulatory follicles

N. Echenim; M. Sorine; F. Clement 2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2005

The biological meaning of follicular development is to free fertilizable oocytes at the time of ovulation. The selection of ovulatory follicles in mammal ovaries is an FSH-dependent selection process. In this paper, we design a multi-scale model of follicular development, where selection arises from the feedback between the ovaries and the pituitary gland and appeals to control theory concepts. Each ...


Re-investigation of the mechanism of trilogy imaging characteristics on TTM in cancer patients

Yulin Zhou; Xi Chen; Wen Yu; Jidong Yu; Jingsong Jiang; Hongling Wang; Naihe Zhang The 26th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2004

According to neuro-endocrine-immune theory, we have done research and tried to find possible explanations of the relationship of trilogy imaging characteristics of thermal texture mapping (TTM) and patients with the malignancies, or the patients susceptible to malignancies. We performed another two experiments to study mechanism of trilogy imaging characteristics, however, the result was not as expected. We have to reconsider ...
