(MEDICAL PHYSICS, 2012-06)
Musculoskeletal symptoms among female garment factory workers in Sri Lanka.
(Int J Occup Environ Health, 2012-07)
OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of musculoskeletal symptoms and their association with sociodemographic risk factors among female garment factory workers in Sri Lanka. METHODS: 1058 randomly selected female garment ...
Characterization of Image Quality for 3D Scatter Corrected Breast CT Images.
(Proc SPIE Int Soc Opt Eng, 2011-03-16)
The goal of this study was to characterize the image quality of our dedicated, quasi-monochromatic spectrum, cone beam breast imaging system under scatter corrected and non-scatter corrected conditions for a variety of breast ...
Comparative performance of multiview stereoscopic and mammographic display modalities for breast lesion detection.
(Med Phys, 2011-04)
PURPOSE: Mammography is known to be one of the most difficult radiographic exams to interpret. Mammography has important limitations, including the superposition of normal tissue that can obscure a mass, chance alignment ...
Pharmacological targeting of the mitochondrial phosphatase PTPMT1.
(J Pharmacol Exp Ther, 2010-05)
The dual-specificity protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) play integral roles in the regulation of cell signaling. There is a need for new tools to study these phosphatases, and the identification of inhibitors potentially ...
Bayesian Analysis of Latent Threshold Dynamic Models
(Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, 2013-04-01)
We discuss a general approach to dynamic sparsity modeling in multivariate time series analysis. Time-varying parameters are linked to latent processes that are thresholded to induce zero values adaptively, providing natural ...
Unfolded protein response genes regulated by CED-1 are required for Caenorhabditis elegans innate immunity.
(Dev Cell, 2008-07)
The endoplasmic reticulum stress response, also known as the unfolded protein response (UPR), has been implicated in the normal physiology of immune defense and in several disorders, including diabetes, cancer, ...
Particulate allergens potentiate allergic asthma in mice through sustained IgE-mediated mast cell activation.
(J Clin Invest, 2011-03)
Allergic asthma is characterized by airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation, and a cellular infiltrate dominated by eosinophils. Numerous epidemiological studies have related the exacerbation of allergic asthma with an ...
Optimized approach to decision fusion of heterogeneous data for breast cancer diagnosis.
(Med Phys, 2006-08)
As more diagnostic testing options become available to physicians, it becomes more difficult to combine various types of medical information together in order to optimize the overall diagnosis. To improve diagnostic performance, ...
Mechanisms of specificity in neuronal activity-regulated gene transcription.
(Prog Neurobiol, 2011-08)
The brain is a highly adaptable organ that is capable of converting sensory information into changes in neuronal function. This plasticity allows behavior to be accommodated to the environment, providing an important evolutionary ...
