Design, x-ray image guidance and flow characterization of new asymmetric vascular stents
Recent advances of x-ray imaging techniques have made possible improvement and development of new minimally invasive image guided interventions (IGI). Capabilities such as real-time, high special resolution image guidance ...
Photosensitizers in photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy
As the African American community witness thousands dying per year from cancer, many advances are being made in the arena of cancer treatment. Although the current methods of cancer treatment are considered viable, the ...
Investigating the occurrence and fate of human and veterinary antibiotics in environmental water systems
The occurrence of antibiotics in surface water, groundwater, and wastewater was investigated using solid phase extraction (SPE) and liquid chromatography with ion-trap mass spectrometry (IT-LC/MS/MS) method developed for ...
Imaging characteristics of iodine-124 on animal PET
We studied the imaging characteristics of Iodine-124 (I-124) on an animal scanner, a microPET Focus 120. The motivation was to develop I-124 applications that take advantage of the long half-life (4.2 days) of I-124 and ...
Determination of three-dimensional structured objects, vascular structures, and imaging geometry from single-plane and biplane projection images
Three-dimensional (3D) vessel trees can provide useful visual and quantitative information during interventional procedures. To calculate the 3D vasculature and improve these measurements, we have developed methods for the ...
The development of mass spectrometric techniques in the analysis of biomarkers and compounds of pharmaceutical and environmental interest
Mass spectrometry has become an invaluable tool to a wide range of biological, chemical, and physical research endeavors. It is routinely used in both the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well as the ...
