A real-time system for monitoring oxidative potential of PM

Particulate matter (PM), a major component of outdoor and indoor air pollution was recently classified by World Health Organization as carcinogenic to humans. The underlying toxicological mechanisms by which particles induce adverse health effects are still not entirely known. Numerous toxicological studies have demonstrated that particles have the ability to generate free radicals and related reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are able to induce oxidative stress at the sites of deposition (i.e. lungs).A fluorescence-based profluorescent nitroxide (PFN) molecular probe synthesized …

Level-set method for segmentation of HEp-2 cell fluorescence microscope images

Automated segmentation of the HEp-2 cell plays an important role in diagnosing an autoimmune disease. Specific failures of the immune system leads to many human autoimmune diseases. These diseases are often chronic, but early diagnosis can mean that earlier invention is possible, which can minimize further damage to organs and tissues.Different technologies used in the medical and biomedical imaging research require a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system, based on image-based segmentation and classification by using signal processing techniques and deep learning.Therefore, …
