Wayne Rasband of NIH has created ImageJ, an open source Java-written program that is now at version 1.31 and is used for many imaging applications, including those that that span the gamut from skin analysis to neuroscience. ImageJ is in the public domain and runs on any operating system (OS). ImageJ is easy to use and can do many imaging manipulations. A very large and knowledgeable group makes up the user community for ImageJ. Topics covered are imaging abilities; cross platform; image formats support as of June 2004; extensions, including macros and plug-ins; and imaging library. NIH reports tens of thousands of downloads at a rate of about 24,000 per month currently. ImageJ can read most of the widely used and significant formats used in biomedical images. Manipulations supported are read/write of image files and operations on separate pixels, image regions, entire images, and volumes (stacks in ImageJ). Basic operations supported include convolution, edge detection, Fourier transform, histogram and particle analyses, editing and color manipulation, and more advanced operations, as well as visualization. For assistance in using ImageJ, users e-mail each other, and the user base is highly knowledgeable and will answer requests on the mailing list. A thorough manual with many examples and illustrations has been written by Tony Collins of the Wright Cell Imaging Facility at Toronto Western Research Institute and is available, along with other listed resources, via the Web.

A general caging method for proteins that are regulated by phosphorylation was used to study the in vivo biochemical action of cofilin and the subsequent cellular response. By acute and local activation of a chemically engineered, light-sensitive phosphocofilin mimic, we demonstrate that cofilin polymerizes actin, generates protrusions, and determines the direction of cell migration. We propose a role for cofilin that is distinct from its role as an actin-depolymerizing factor.

We have proposed a new method for the extraction of the retinal optical imaging signal in humans and cats, based on the assumption that in the retina the spatial distribution of the signal is similar to that of the projection of the visual stimulus. The obtained spatial truncation maps, though noisy, have time-courses that may fit the known physiology.

Background. We compared the cardioprotective effects of 1 minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) desflurane administered before, during or after ischaemia, or throughout the experiment (before, during and after ischaemia) on myocardial infarct size following 30 min occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery and 3 h reperfusion in adult rats. Methods. Fifty male Sprague‐Dawley rats were anaesthetized with pentobarbital, intubated and mechanically ventilated. Blood gases, pH and body ...

Telenuclear medicine facilitates a timely expert interpretation of emergency nuclear medicine studies. Current, high-speed Internet connection allows nuclear medicine physicians to be on-call from their homes. Software to support telenuclear medicine is becoming more widely available, although the design of some departments makes implementation difficult. Quality control of the remote monitor requires special attention to ensure correct interpretation. Fortunately, monitor quality control can be...

Creatine kinase (CK) catalyses the reaction: phosphocreatine (PCr) + ADP + H+ ⇌ creatine (Cr) + ATP. This reaction is presumed to play a key role in energy metabolism, acting both as a temporal and a spatial energy buffer (Wallimann et al. 1992; Wyss & Kaddurah-Daouk, 2000). There are two isoforms of CK in skeletal muscle cells: (1) cytosolic CK (M-CK) concentrated at the myofibrillar M-line and in association with sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ pumps, and (2) mitochondrial CK (ScCKmit or MtCK...

Mitochondria play key roles in the life and death of cells. We investigated whether mitochondria represent morphologically continuous entities within single intact cells. Physical continuity of mitochondria was determined by three-dimensional reconstruction of fluorescence from mitochondrially targeted DsRed1 or tetra-methyl rhodamine ethyl ester (TMRE). The mitochondria of pancreatic acinar, porcine aortic endothelial (PAE) cells, COS-7 cells and SH-SY5Y cells and neocortical astrocytes all dis...

Multiple initiatives in the pharmaceutical and beauty care industries are directed at identifying therapies for weight management. Body composition measurements are critical for such initiatives. Imaging technologies that can be used to measure body composition noninvasively include DXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). Unlike other approaches, MRI provides the ability to perform localized measurements of fat distribution. Several factors complicate the aut...

The cellular mechanisms underlying functional hyperemia—the coupling of neuronal activation to cerebral blood vessel responses—are not yet known. Here we show in rat cortical slices that the dilation of arterioles triggered by neuronal activity is dependent on glutamate-mediated [Ca2+]i oscillations in astrocytes. Inhibition of these Ca2+ responses resulted in the impairment of activity-dependent vasodilation, whereas selective activation—by patch pipette—of single astrocytes that were in contac...

The outcome of complex craniofacial operations is critically dependent on careful and accurate preoperative planning. Recent advances in computer technology enable the surgeon to do surgical simulations directly on to a computer terminal. We describe the clinical application of a public domain-based computer-aided system in craniofacial surgery. Operation planning was based on clinical investigations and radiological images, with particular use of a virtual three-dimensional surgical simulation....

This work presents a method to measure the soft tissue motion in three dimensions in the orbit during gaze. It has been shown that two-dimensional (2-D) quantification of soft tissue motion in the orbit is effective in the study of orbital anatomy and motion disorders. However, soft tissue motion is a three-dimensional (3-D) phenomenon and part of the kinematics is lost in any 2-D measurement. Therefore, T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging volume sequences are acquired during gaze and so...

The severity of plant diseases, traditionally the proportion of the plant tissue exhibiting symptoms, is a key quantitative variable to know for many diseases and is prone to error. Good quality disease severity data should be accurate (close to the true value). Earliest quantification of disease severity was by visual estimates. Sensor-based image analysis including visible spectrum and hyperspectral and multispectral sensors are established technologies that promise to substitute, or complemen...

Abstract Environmental factors such as light and temperature present cyclic variations during the day. High temperatures occur during the light phase, whereas low temperatures take place at night (i.e. a daily thermocycle). Although applying thermocycles to fish larvae improves growth in some species, nothing is known about the impact during the early development of the digestive system. The aim of the present research was to investigate the effect of different temperature regimes, cycling versu...

Abstract A Bayesian approach is presented for clarifying the best kinetic model explaining the transformation kinetics of a low-carbon steel under different continuous cooling conditions only from dilatometric curves. To estimate kinetic parameters as well as the model plausibility of candidate kinetic models, the exchange Markov chain Monte Carlo method was used. The effectiveness of the proposed method was demonstrated by metallographic investigations of the ferrite formation in a Fe-0.15C-1.5...

Abstract The biggest abiotic threat to banana (Musa spp.) production is water deficit, but physiological indicators in plantations are lacking. Canopy Cover (CC) seems to be a relevant parameter, but so far not used in banana fields. Field experiments were conducted to determine the effect of optimal irrigation (FI) versus rainfed (RF) on CC and Leaf Area Indices (LAI) in two experiments with different cultivars (Mchare ‘Huti Green’ [HG, AA] and Cavendish ‘Grand Naine’[GN, AAA]) (n = 3 for HG, n...

Abstract Owing to the self-renewing reactive oxygen species scavenger capability of cerium oxide nanoparticles (nanoceria), we tested in vivo radioprotective effects on stem cells and tissue regeneration using low-dose irradiated planarians as model system. We treated planarians with nanoceria or gum Arabic, as control, and we analyzed the expression of stem cell molecular markers and tissue regeneration capability, as well as cell death and DNA damage in non-irradiated and in low-dose irradiate...

Abstract High internal phase emulsions (HIPEs) are highly viscous complex fluids and cannot be easily transported through pipelines. In the present work, we report experimental studies on transportation of HIPEs using water-lubricated core-annular flow (CAF) in a horizontal pipe. We explore two sets of w/o HIPEs having different mass fractions of continuous phase (6.5 and 15 wt%, respectively). The rheology of HIPEs is carefully characterized, and both sets of emulsions are found to be shear thi...

Abstract In this study, highly flexible and conductive dry electrodes were developed using a biocompatible polymer (poly (ethylene dioxythiophene): poly (styrene sulfonate), (PEDOT:PSS)) loaded mechanically robust laser-induced graphene (LIG). The circular-shaped LIG electrode with an area of 0.7854 cm2 was directly patterned using a CO2 laser. The PEDOT:PSS was spray-coated on the LIG to enhance the electrical conductivity (164.2 Scm−1) and electrode robustness. The prepared electrodes were cha...

Abstract Acacia auriculiformis plantations are widely planted in Vietnam. Initially they were grown for wood chip production, but these plantations have potential to be managed for higher value sawing and/or peeling grade logs, through enhanced silvicultural management. This study sought to understand the impact of resource constraints on responses of A. auriculiformis plantations to thinning, phosphorus fertiliser application and slash retention at age four years on growth and physiology of A. ...
