Objective: A hybrid imaging technique, Ultrasound Modulated Luminescence Tomography, that uses ultrasound to modulate diffusely propagating light has been shown to improve the spatial resolution of optical images. This paper is to investigate the underlying modulation mechanisms and the feasibility of applying this technique to improve the spatial resolution of bioluminescence tomography.Methods: Ultrasound Modulated Bioluminescence […]

Internal pressure ranges from 0 to 1.4 MPa. The buckling mechanisms are observed for a set of models with different values of length, wall thickness and geometric variation of the cross section. It is shown that two different buckling modes can take place. The reddest of the discs in clusters must have stopped forming stars […]

Emerging evidence supports that the malignant T cells take control of the inflammatory environment, suppressing cellular immunity and anti tumor responses while promoting a chronic inflammatory milieu that fuels their own expansion. Here, we review the inflammatory changes associated with disease progression in CTCL and point to their wider relevance in other cancer contexts. We […]
