Article
Although three-dimensional computed tomographic angiography was developed as a screening tool for use in patients with suspected cerebrovascular disease, this imaging modality has also proven to be of value in surgical planning for patients with large or unusual vascular lesions of the brain. The three-dimensional images generated by this technique...
Article
Computer-generated three-dimensional reconstruction of the intracranial vascular system obtained by contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) has been used in the diagnosis of 20 patients with known or suspected intracranial cerebrovascular disease. This technique allows visualization of the intracranial vasculature without exposing patients t...
Article
We report on computer-assisted three-dimensional reconstruction of spinal cord activity associated with stimulation of the plantar cushion (PC) as revealed by [14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) serial autoradiographs. Moderate PC stimulation in cats elicits a reflex phasic plantar flexion of the toes. Four cats were chronically spinalized at about T6 u...
Article
Computed tomography (CT) can generate a set of serial contiguous slices which form a volume of medical image data. We have developed new techniques for creating computer synthesized 3-D images directly from a volume encoded as a three-dimensional array. The operator can place the eye anywhere in object space to selectively view a portion of the vol...
Article
The precise anatomical relation by which autonomic nerve endings contact gastric epithelial cells to enhance the rate of gastric secretions is not fully understood. The aim of the present study was to clarify this issue by using the technique of serial section reconstruction of areas of the gastric mucosa. The work also explored the possibility of...
Article
Computer-aided techniques were used to reconstruct the complex renal tubular system in the dorsal kidney region of a marine elasmobranch fish, the little skate (Raja erinacea), from a series of light micrographs of serial sections. It was established that five individual segments of one nephron, consisting of two loops and a distal tubule, are arra...
Chapter
There is a growing use of computer technology for neuroanatomical studies. First uses began nearly as soon as small laboratory computers became available in the late 1960’s and early’70’s. The benefits of being able to quantitate what could only be photographed and verbally described were obvious to many workers. It was also a hope that machine sto...
Chapter
Catecholamine-containing neurons have been found to subserve numerous functions (see reviews by Moore and Bloom, 1978, 1979; Mason, 1981). For example, dopamine (DA) and norepinephrine (NF) containing cells in the hypothalamus regulate pituitary hormone output. The midbrain DA neurons of the substantia nigra (nucleus A9) which innervate the neostri...

Article
A technique is described which has been used to quantitate the 3-dimensional configuration of the midbrain dopamine (DA) nuclei (cell groups A8, A9, and A10). This technique provides cell counting information, for example, the BALB/c mouse has approximately 25,000 midbrain DA neurons, the albino rat has about 40,000 neurons, and man (33 year old) h...
Article
A general computer-based system has been developed and implemented for acquiring and viewing medical image data. Originally developed for neuroanatomic studies (1), including investigations of cell topography and connectivity in brainstem nuclei, the system has become a versatile and powerful tool for three-dimensional analysis and display of a var...
Article
Quantitative techniques are assuming an increasing role in clinical nuclear medicine imaging. Emission computed tomograms (BCT) use such methods, but ;their diagnostic utility depends on effective, meaningful data displays. Algorithms are described which provide quantitative images of radio-labelled tracers in 3-dimensions (3D). the system, develop...
Article
Emission computed tomography (ECT) quantitatively localizes radionuclide tracer distributions within a three-dimensional (3D) volume. Currently available techniques limit the display of this information to series of cross-sectional or rotating images. Such techniques of ten rely on special viewing equipment to synthesize the image series into a vol...
