Title:Modelling the Short QT Syndrome Gene Mutations [electronic resource] : And Their Role in Cardiac Arrhythmogenesis
Author(s): Ismail Adeniran
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The Short QT Syndrome (SQTS) is characterized by abbreviated QT intervals on the electrocardiogram, increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death. Although several gene mutations have been identified in SQT patients, therole of these mutatio ns in promoting arrhythmogenesis is still not completely understood. Consequently, this thesis employs multidisciplinary approaches to develop a 3D virtual heart, which is then used to elucidate how the short QTsyndrome facilitates and maintains ventricul ar arrhythmias and to determine its effects on ventricular mechanical contraction. The findings in this thesis provide a comprehensive and mechanistic explanation for a number of genemutations associated with potassium channels in terms of susceptibility to arrhythmia. The multiphysics models developed provide a powerful platform for identifying the root causes of various arrhythmias and investigating therapeuticinterventions for these diseases. The thesis was examined by Prof. Chris Huang of the Universi ty of Cambridge, the most authoritative figure in cardiac electrophysiology, who has described the work as outstanding.

Title:Intracellular Signaling Mediators in the Circulatory and Ventilatory Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marc Thiriet
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. Thecardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from the body's cells. Because physiological conduits have deformable and reactive walls,macroscopic flow behavior and prediction must be coupled to p henomenological models of nano- and microscopic events in a corrector scheme of regulated mechanisms when the vessel lumen caliber varies markedly. Therefore, investigationof flows of blood and air in physiological conduits requires an understanding of th e biology, chemistry, and physics of these systems together with the mathematical tools to describe their functioning. Volume 4 is devoted to major setsof intracellular mediators that transmit signals upon stimulation of cell-surface receptors. Activation of signaling effectors triggers the release of substances stored in cellular organelles and/or gene transcription and proteinsynthesis. Complex stages of cell signaling can be studied using proper mathematical models, once the role of each component is c arefully handled. Volume 4 also reviews various categories of cytosolic and/or nuclear mediators andillustrates some major signal transduction pathways, such as NFkappaB axis, oxygen sensing, and mechanotransduction. Reviews signaling pathways in the regu lation of circulatory and respiratory function Describes ion and molecularcarriers and receptors Integrates biology, chemistry, and physics for a multidisciplinary understanding of physiological flows

Note:Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. Part I of this two-volumesequence, Biology, addresses the nanoscopic and microscopic scales. The nanoscale corresponds to the scale of biochemical reaction cascades involved in cell adaptation to mechanical stresses among other stimuli. The microscale is thescale of stress-induced tissue remodeling associate d with acute or chronic loadings. The cardiovascular system, like any physiological system, has a complicated three-dimensional structure and composition. Its time dependent behavioris regulated, and this complex system has many components. In this author itative work, the author provides a survey of relevant cell components and processes, with detailed coverage of the electrical and mechanical behaviors ofvascular cells, tissues, and organs. Because the behaviors of vascular cells and tissues are tightly coupled to the mechanics of flowing blood, the major features of blood flows and the Navier-Stokes equations of mass and momentumconservation are introduced at the conclusion of this volume. This book will appeal to any biologist, chemist, physicist, or a pplied mathematician with an interest in the functioning of the cardiovascular system

Note:This book is directly derived from a NATO-sponsored international meeting on problems of high altitude medicine and biology, which was held on the shores of lake of Issyk-Kul, in Kyrghyzstan, in June 5-6, 2006. It was a surprisefor several European a nd North and South-American scientists to discover the still on-going momentum high level altitude physiology research, which was extremely active but insufficiently acknowledged in this remote Central Asiancountry at the time of the USSR. Accordingly, th e setting was perfect for numerous positive scientific interactions, exchanges of ideas, and structuring of new international collaborations. Overall, the meeting was an ideal mix of cellbiology, integrative physiology and medical applications. Hypoxia is and remains a major public health issue in many populated mountainous areas all over the world. We are sure that this book will be become a long-lasting essentialreference

Title:Quantitative Analysis in Nuclear Medicine Imaging [electronic resource]
Author(s): Habib Zaidi
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a review of image analysis techniques as they are applied in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Driven in part by the remarkable increase in computing power and its ready and inexpensiveavailability, this is a relatively new yet rapidly expanding field. Likewise, although the use of radionuclides for diagnosis and therapy has origins dating back almost to the discovery of natural radioactivity itself, radionuclidetherapy and, in particular, targeted radionucl ide therapy has only recently emerged as a promising approach for therapy of cancer and, to a lesser extent, other diseases. As effort has, therefore, been made to place the reviewsprovided in this book in a broader context. The effort to do this is refle cted by the inclusion of introductory chapters that address basic principles of nuclear medicine imaging, followed by overview of issues that are closely relatedto quantitative nuclear imaging and its potential role in diagnostic and therapeutic applicati ons. The different chapters discuss the basic principles and various steps required for obtaining quantitatively accurate data from nuclearmedicine images including data collection methods and algorithms used to correct them for physical degrading factors (e.g. collimator response, attenuation, scatter, partial volume effect), and image reconstruction algorithms(analytic, iterative) as well as image processing and analysis techniques as their clinical and research applications in neurology, cardiology and oncology. Some algorithms are described and illustrated with some useful features andclinical applications. Other potential applications of quantitative image analysis such as image-guided radiation therapy are also discussed
