    Our latest system for the imaging of temperature and other thermal properties of the skin provides not only precise temperature distribution of the skin but also high-speed measurement of emissivity and inertia distribution. The method enabled us to measure the emissivity and thermal inertia of the skin even when the temperature distribution of the inner surface of the hood was not uniform. Two-di... View full abstract»

    Presents an approach that allows simultaneous assessment of thermal properties of multiple fingers on both hands. It is a novel approach to the estimation of Raynaud's phenomenon based on infrared functional imaging assessments. Q, which represents the total amount of stored heat by the finger during the rewarming processes and is evaluated by means of the area under the time-temperature curve, se... View full abstract»

    An optical system that attaches to a slit lamp is an alternative to the cost and limitations of specular microscopes. In order to overcome the limitations of subjective assessment of all the endothelial layers, the difficulties of manipulation, high cost, and analysis of several parts of the cornea, we have developed a system that can be attached to the slit lamp (290× nominal magnification ...

    One of the drawbacks of the Fourier reconstruction-based approach is the lack of good, efficient interpolation schemes to convert from the polar grid to the Cartesian grid that are needed to do the inverse FFT. Siemens Computerized Tomography group has developed an interpolation scheme that addresses such a shortcoming. In this article we present a parallel approach for a Fourier reconstruction-ba...

    In brain surgery, placing a microelectrode from the outer brain to the specific target becomes a new medical resource-reduced technology to alleviate Parkinson's disease. During the operation, the brain atlas is an important and auxiliary tool that cannot completely describe the real brain structure of the patient. Thus, a neurosurgeon usually conjectures the surgical target through experience und... View full abstract»

    The electric field (EF) model was first developed on a "breadboard" using physical electric components (e.g., resistors, capacitors, batteries) and was then modeled mathematically by a series of differential equations and matrix equations and simulated on a large computer (CDC-6400). The results obtained by the two methods agreed very closely. However, these two methods of analysis are quite cumbe... View full abstract»

    Synthetic organic molecular approaches to prepare materials for fabricating molecular functional devices is one of the most attractive themes for chemists to pursue. Organized assemblies of organic molecules could be expected to exhibit new functionality in the resulting structure. However, the desirable functionality sometimes requires structure that is too complicated to synthesize by means of c... View full abstract»

    DNA microarrays, which allow for the parallel analysis of thousands of genes, have become the most popular functional genomic tool in use today. Substantial data sets are currently being produced by researchers in both the public and the private sector. Proceeding at a significantly slower rate than its complement, microarray data generation, the analysis of microarray data is a true bottleneck fo... View full abstract»

    Taking a cue from nature, self-assembly of molecular building blocks to form larger-scale functional elements is an attractive, "bottoms-up" approach for fabricating nanometer-size devices. DNA is a promising construction material for growing well-defined nanostructures. DNA oligonucleotides have unique and predictable recognition capabilities and materials of different properties (e.g., proteins)... View full abstract»
