检测皮肤癌的一种准确有效的新方法

恭喜Aneta Stefanovska和Marco Rossi教授以及他们在兰开斯特和比萨大学的团队,最近他们对他们在这里的工作“基于血流灌注波动进行动态标记进而选择皮肤黑色素病变细胞进行活检”产生了很大兴趣,该项工作内容已经发表在了自然科学报告中。我们可以在这里了解该项工作的内容。文章作者提出了一种非侵入性并能准确识别恶性黑色素瘤的方法。该技术需要监测一个时间段的血流量以便可以使用小波分析来研究和对比不同带宽条件下的节律波动强度。它们已经处理的小波分析结果,对诊断皮肤黑素瘤病变具有100%的灵敏度和90.9%的特异性。这是一个很好的突破,因为主观检查缺乏可靠性,一些报道表明高达80%的皮肤活检复又被证明是非癌变黑素瘤,因此这项技术经改良后有望成为未来的病变筛查技术。在此提醒一下,小波分析可作为moorVMS-PC软件的标准使用。 [...]

血流和血氧:低频波动的一致性

Geraldine Clough教授(南安普敦,英国)和他的同事们已经使用FFT分析评估出了皮肤的血流和血氧,同时正在寻找两者的周期和低频波动。进一步的分析发现血流和血氧信号之间的频率一致,两者的信号在内皮细胞和神经频段(分别为0.01Hz和0.04Hz左右)最好。这些发现支持和扩展了Bernjak等人的研究结果(2012;利用小波变换进行分析),并提供了一个探讨微血管病变的发病机制的平台。 该项研究结果将发表在即将在京都召开的世界微循环大会上。 [...]
