Optimisation of US liver perfusion

The authors examined how different input parameters of the ultrasound devices influence the final results of quantitative perfusion analysis using microbubble-based contrast agents. Article: Optimisation of ultrasound liver perfusion through a digital reference object...

3D SHINKEI of abdomen for MR neurography of celiac plexus

This study compared respiratory- and cardiac-triggered three-dimensional (3D) SHINKEI to other modes, and respiratory- and cardiac-triggered 3D SHINKEI showed superior nerve-to-muscle signal ratios in abdomen. Article: Respiratory- and cardiac-triggered...

Automated alignment correction algorithm for geological CT imaging

The authors developed an alignment correction algorithm for CT that would improve geological sampling of sediment cores taken from a cold-water coral mount. Article: Experimental application of an automated alignment correction algorithm for geological CT imaging:...

MRI-guided HIFU-triggered supertargeted drug release

This study provides the proof-of-concept of using a magnetic resonance imaging-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound pulse for disintegrating and triggering release of a newly developed thermoresponsive wax-coated capsule, thus enabling temporally and spatially...
