Real-time monitoring of tissue property in a liver phantom using an internal electrode and weighted frequency difference conductivity during microwave ablation2014-04-24We measured the time difference and weighted frequency difference conductivity images to monitor the changes of temperature and tissue property in a liver phantom due to the microwave ablation. Pixels in regions of interest were compared between conventional boundary surface electrode method and focused configuration with an internal electrode.
Continuous non-destructive conductivity monitoring of chondrogenesis using bioimpedance tensor probe2014-04-24A continuous non-destructive monitoring method is required to apply proper feedback controls during chondrogenesis. We measured the apparent conductivity and the amount of anisotropy on the top and bottom surfaces of samples in the chondrogenesis process to evaluate the ECM structure and composition changes. We compared them with histological trait to analyse the results.
2014-04-25Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by the occlusion of the upper airway. No real-time imaging technique, which can detect such occlusion during natural sleep, exists at the moment. The surface electrodes were attached on the face and neck, and then changes in the conductivity image of the upper airway were successfully detected.
