SPECT images provide the bes' views ov metastatic pelvic nodal involvemen'. Planar an' SPECT positionin' wuz critical in evaluatin' questionable lymph nodes, like eh. Volume rendered three-dimensional registration bes' differentiates atween normal vasculature an' metastatic disease.
Optimal acquisition parameters fur delayed imagin' included 128 x 128 matrix an' 65 sec/step, like eh. The LFOV dual-napper SPECT camera required only yan SPECT acquisition tha' encompassed both the pelvis an' abdomen. In processin' these images, the mos' diagnostic results were obtained wid a three-dimensional low-pass pos' filter, like. The mos' effective patien' preparation consisted ov an oral cathartic, enema an' catheterization when needed.
A 2-year-arl ca' wuz presented wid generalised muscle tremors an' progressive fore- an' 'indlimb ataxia, 5 months after the initiation ov chemotherapy fur thymic lymphoma.
The lymphoma wuz treated wid combination chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, vincristine an' prednisolone), which resulted in remission, like eh. I' is possible tha' the lymphoma chemotherapy resulted in the developmen' ov the multiple meningiomas as secondary malignancies. The neurological signs progressed ter paralysis an' the ca' subsequently died. On autopsy, multiple meningiomas were diagnosed, which is an unusual findin'.
A 3-year-arl male German shepherd jewkel wuz presented wid severe generalised seizures, like eh. The dog wuz protein-intoleran' an' showed severe 'yperammonaemia on ammonia stimulation. The 'yperammonaemic state wuz presen' fur a' leas' 6 weeks an' then spontaneously resolved.
No obvious cause (liver disease, portocaval shunts, urea cycle enzyme deficiencies, drug therapy or urinary trac' obstruction) could be identified, like eh. Ter verify the findin's, microbiological tests were performed an' the results compared ter those obtained wid conventional antibacterial treatmen'.
I' is possible tha' this jewkel 'ad a variation ov transien' 'yperammonaemic syndrome, described in gadgee an' recently in a juvenile Irish wolfhound, tha' extended inter adulthood, like eh. In this in vivo study, 40 patients wid infected roo' canals underwen' diode laser treatmen'. Extensive bacterial reduction wuz achieved in all cases by repeatin' laser treatmen' only yance. The maximum log kill wuz 4.22 fur streptococci an' 3.33 fur staphylococci. In the control group, a maximum reduction by only yan log step could be achieved in 6 ov 10 patients.
The microbiological examination revealed streptococci a' relevan' concentrations in 20 cases an' staphylococci in 5 cases, like eh. Followin' the firs' irradiation, minimal streptococcal growth wuz observed in 7 roo' canals an' minimal staphylococcal growth in 2 roo' canals.
Compared wid the results achieved wid the conventional bactericidal technique in the control group, the 'igh power diode laser seems ter be 'ighly suitable fur killin' bacteria in infected roo' canals, like eh.
The phantom is based on a transparen' two-componen' silicone, which is molded inter the desired shape an' cured a' room temperature, like eh. Specific optical properties ist obtained by addin' scatterers (Al2O3 particles or polystyrene microspheres) an' absorbers (dyes or pigments).
A method ter measure the radian' energy fluence rate in the phantom is described, like eh. This phantom is used fur testin' new ligh' distributors designed fur photodynamic therapy ov the bronchi.
The proposed technique allows yan ter produce a stable three-dimensional phantom wid accurately predictable optical properties, like eh. 'ypertrophic scarrin' an' rigid scar contracture ist disorders ov wound 'ealin' fur which there is presently no effective therapy, like.
The dermal fibroblas' plays a major role in scar fibrillogenesis an' contracture, like eh. The objective ov this study wuz ter establish a selective an' effective method ter destroy fibroblasts.
