Synthesizing cysteine-coated magnetite nanoparticles as MRI contrast agent: Effect of pH and cysteine addition on particles size distribution

Abstract

Cysteine capped magnetite nanoparticles (10 to 20 nm) were synthesized via coprecipitation method under ultrasonic irradiation. The influence of pH value of the solution and cysteine addition on the size distribution and hydrodynamic size of nanoparticles were studied via TEM and PCS methods, respectively. The crystal structure and magnetic properties of the nanoparticles were characterized by XRD and VSM techniques, respectively. Coating density was calculated using TGA and TEM results. Cytotoxicity assessment performed by incubation of L929 cells, confirmed that ferrofluids are biocompatible. MRI studies conducted on rats demonstrated suitability of synthesized nanoparticles as contrast agents, especially for imaging of the lymph nodes.

Application of Discrete Cross-Correlation Function for Observational-Comparative Navigation System

Abstract

The article presents navigation system project operating on the principle scene matching area correlation (SMAC), using a digital camera, an MEMS e-compass sensor and an ultrasonic ranging module. Systems of this type are used as a component of advanced integrated navigation systems in view of its autonomy and capability of localizing aircrafts with high accuracy and precision. Steering and display of information are implemented using a computer application designed in Matlab programming environment. The object’s location is fixed, using discrete cross-correlation function through matching of the registered terrain image to digital orthophotomap.

The article describes operations directly related to digital image processing, its implementation methods, a structural system design with explanations of each of the functional elements and presents devices used to build a complete integrated measurement unit model. It was used for the effectiveness measurement of determining the location of an object depending on the changes of angle and height of the flight as well as the luminance and noise level in a registered image. The measurements methodology was described which also includes an analysis of the results, an effectiveness evaluation and potential development directions of the designed system.

The methods used for the diagnosis and evaluation of scoliosis

Abstract

In recent years there multiple studies have been carried out on early diagnosis of scoliosis on school and preschool children. The diagnosis and evaluation of scoliosis is done by carrying out X-rays. A protocol is implemented for tracking the evolution of a scoliosis which involves both clinical control and imaging (X-ray) every 6 months, until the end of the growth period of the child. Because investigations such as X-ray and CT, can have harmful effects on the child's growing body (recent studies have shown that X-ray affects the skin, eyes, hematopoietic tissue, gonads and may cause cancer), new methods for diagnosing and tracking the evolution in time were researched. The present paper tries to present the current methods used in the diagnosis and assessment of scoliosis evolution in time, pointing out the main advantages and disadvantages of each method. There are a few methods developed in recent years in Germany by Zebris Medical Gmbh (using mapping with ultrasonic digital equipment), in Canada by InSpeck (using three-dimensional mapping through digital image acquisition) but used on a small scale. The newly developed methods have the advantage of being non-invasive, painless, non-irradiating and they can be used regardless of health status or gender. Although medical technology has developed very rapidly in recent years, radiology remains the most common method of investigation used for scoliosis. Certainly, in the near future the methods presented in this paper could be used more widely, for the benefits arising from their use.
