What is TheraSphere ? TheraSphere consists of insoluble glass microspheres where Yttrium-90 is an integral constituent of the glass. Yttrium-90 is a pure beta emitter (physical half-life of 64.2 hours or 2.67 days) and decays to stable zirconium-90. The average energy of the beta emissions from yttrium-90 is 0.9367 MeVFollowing embolization... of the yttrium-90 glass microspheres in tumorous liver tissue, the beta radiation emitted provides a therapeutic effect. The microspheres are delivered into the liver tumor through a catheter placed into the hepatic artery that supplies blood to the tumor (This is usually performed in a hospital's radiology suite and patients remain conscious throughout the procedure). The microspheres are unable to pass through the vasculature of the liver due to arteriolar capillary blockade and are trapped in the tumor. There they exert a local radiotherapeutic effect with some damage to surrounding normal liver tissue.

Heller Lecture - Prof. David Kleinfeld Prof. David Kleinfeld, Professor of Physics & Neuroscience UC San Diego On the topic of: "The nature and control of blood flow in the brain" Abstract: Neuronal activity is intimately linked with changes in metabolic needs and changes in cortical blood flow. Even minor interruptions in flow can adversely affect cognitive function. We take a holistic approach toward this issue and advance the use of modern optical techniques to map the architecture of the brain's vasculature and determine the reliability and fragility of brain vasculature, probe reliability with targeted occlusions, discover and manipulate points that control flow, and begin to delineate neuronal control of the cortical blood supply.

NCPTA: Non Cardiac Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty A non-cardiac percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, or NCPTA, is done to restore blood flow in an artery blocked by atheroscl*** plaque. This 3D medical animation depicts the steps involved in preforming a Non Cardiac Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty.
Attacking Tumor Vasculature, PMAP Angiogenesis is a fundamental step in the transition of tumors from a dormant state to a malignant state. Therapeutic angiogenesis is the application of specific compounds which may inhibit or induce the creation of new blood vessels in the body in order to combat disease. The presence of blood vessels where there should be none may affect the mechanical properties of a tissue, increasing the likelihood of failure. The absence of blood vessels in a repairing or otherwise metabolically active tissue may retard repair or some other function. Several diseases (eg. ischemic chronic wounds) are the result of failure or insufficient blood vessel formation and may be treated by a local expansion of blood vessels, thus bringing new nutrients to the site, facilitating repair. Other diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, may be created by a local expansion of blood vessels, interfering with normal physiological processes.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm This 3D animation on abdominal aortic aneurysms depicts the anatomy of the aorta and both the open and endovascular procedure for repairing an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (also known as AAA, pronounced "triple-a") is a localized dilatation (ballooning) of the abdominal aorta exceeding the normal diameter by more than 50 percent. In the open procedure the abdomen and aorta are opened and a graft is sown into place. In an endovascular procedure catheters are used to place a stent graft in the aneurysm. Item #ANH00012
Steffen Oeltze: Visual comparison of different vessel visualization techniques Reconstruction of the portal vein inside a human liver for planning a tumor resection. An overview is presented in the lower left view. Here, the tumor is visible between two ribs. The remaining views illustrate the reconstruction of the portal vein by means of isosurface rendering (upper left), the concatenation of truncated cones along the vessel skeleton (upper right) and Convolution Surfaces (lower right). The latter two methods are model-based approaches which visualize vasculature based on the corresponding vessel skeleton and associated radius information. In close-up views, the isosurface rendering exhibits nasty stair case artifacts while the truncated cone approach shows creases and shading discontinuities at branchings. However, the Convolution surface appears smooth and organic even at branchings. (Image ***ysis results were provided by Freunhofer MeVis, Bremen, Germany)
biosights: September 6, 2010 T Cells Rho across the endothelium During an immune response, T cells move into tissues from the vasculature by crossing the endothelial cell layer lining blood vessel walls. Heasman et al. reveal that this transendothelial migration requires signaling at both the front and back of leukocytes by the small GTPase RhoA. This biosights episode presents the paper by Heasman et al. from the August 23, 2010 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology, and includes an interview with senior author Anne Ridley.

Moving Cardiac Vasculature Phantom This is a synthetic phantom developed in this project. It is able to perform periodic and aperiodic heart motions at different heart rates. A dataset for 3-D reconstruction is obtained by forward projection of the phantom. The phantom is used to study novel algorithms for motion estimation and motion compensated reconstruction.

Two-photon imaging of blood flow in rat: Pial vasculature This movie shows the movement of red blood cells and dilations of pial vessels of the rat cortex. The blood serum was labeled with a high molecular weight fluorescein-dextran (blood cells are not labeled and appear as shadows). Our laboratory applied methods of quantifying blood flow at the level of individual blood vessels, in order to study functional regulation of blood flow in brain. More info at: www-physics.ucsd.edu

Safety Precautions for Huber Needles (March 2010) FDA is alerting healthcare professionals about safety precautions to be used with Huber needles, and about a recall of one company's products. Huber needles are used to access ports implanted in chronically ill patients to withdraw blood and infuse medication and other solutions. Huber needles should be designed to penetrate a port without cutting or dislodging any silicone slivers or cores from the port. Coring could damage a port and cause leakage. In addition, if a silicone core enters a patient's vasculature, it could lead to serious adverse events. FDA inspections of one Huber needle manufacturer, Nipro Medical Corporation, found that this company's needles produced cores in 60 - 72 percent of tests. Because of this, Huber needle products manufactured by Nipro Medical Corporation for Exel International Corporation have been recalled. These products include: •Exel and EXELint Huber needles •Exel and EXELint Huber Infusion Sets •Exel "Securetouch+" Huber Safety Sets •EXELint Huber Safety Sets Affected lot numbers and catalogue numbers can be found in the links below. Hospitals, clinics and patients who have any of the recalled products should stop using them immediately and return them to the company. As part of a broader investigation, FDA has tested Huber needles from a number of manufacturers. To date, only needles manufactured by Nipro have shown a high frequency of coring. FDA is continuing to investigate this issue. In the meantime, the agency recommends taking ...

Vasculature Segmentation in Intravital Microscopy Images Using a Physics Based Model Segmentation of vessels in biomedical images is important as it can provide insight on the changes of blood flow as well as assist in tracking of cells. The images of the liver vasculature obtained from IVM are ***yzed by manually measuring vessel properties in a few sample areas in the images. This is a tedious and time consuming process and is prone to variable technician bias. The automation of segmentation is challenging as the vessel images captured in intravital microscopy contain a high degree of noise. Also, a large number of vessels present in these images often results in a high computation requirement. We propose a new method of segmenting based on physical force model. "Vessel probes" placed in the image are moved toward the vessel boundary while spreading out from each other according to Newtonian Physics responding to the forces from image attributes as well as from each other. Some preliminary results will be discussed on this on-going project.
