A neural network-based method for spectral distortion correction in photon counting x-ray CT.
(Physics in medicine and biology, 2016-08)
Spectral CT using a photon counting x-ray detector (PCXD) shows great potential for measuring material composition based on energy dependent x-ray attenuation. Spectral CT is especially suited for imaging with K-edge contrast ...
Enhancing Radiation Therapy Through Cherenkov Light-Activated Phototherapy.
(International journal of radiation oncology, biology, physics, 2018-03)
This work investigates a new approach to enhance radiotherapy through a photo therapeutic agent activated by Cherenkov light produced from the megavoltage photon beam. The process is termed Radiotherapy Enhanced with Cherenkov ...
Pathogenesis of growth failure and partial reversal with gene therapy in murine and canine Glycogen Storage Disease type Ia
(Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, 2013)
Glycogen Storage Disease type Ia (GSD-Ia) in humans frequently causes delayed bone maturation, decrease in final adult height, and decreased growth velocity. This study evaluates the pathogenesis of growth failure and the ...
Long-Term Functional Outcomes following Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant for Early Infantile Krabbe Disease.
(Biology of blood and marrow transplantation : journal of the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, 2018-06-19)
Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can retard the progression of early infantile Krabbe disease (EIKD). Superior outcomes are achieved if HSCT is performed prior to the onset of symptoms, however little ...
Clinical applications of liquid biopsies in gastrointestinal oncology.
(Journal of gastrointestinal oncology, 2016-10)
"Liquid biopsies" are blood based assays used to detect and analyze circulating tumor products, including circulating tumor cells (CTCs), circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA), circulating messenger RNA (mRNA), circulating microRNA ...
The Warrior Wellness Study: A Randomized Controlled Exercise Trial for Older Veterans with PTSD.
(Translational journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, 2018-03)
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects up to 30% of military veterans. Older veterans, many of whom have lived with PTSD symptoms for several decades, report a number of negative health outcomes. Despite the demonstrated ...
Analysis of in vitro chemoresponse assays in endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma: an observational ancillary analysis.
(Gynecologic oncology research and practice, 2016-01)
Chemotherapy plays a role in the treatment of endometrioid endometrial cancer (EEC); however, tumor grade may affect response. Our objective was to evaluate associations between tumor grade and in vitro chemoresponse.We ...
Early recovery after hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome: a prospective, observational study.
(Journal of hip preservation surgery, 2017-12)
The early post-operative course after hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome has not been thoroughly characterized or correlated to factors that may influence recovery. The aim of this study was to report ...
