Preparation and evaluation of cerium oxide-bovine hydroxyapatite composites for biomedical engineering applications
The fabrication and characterization of bovine hydroxyapatite (BHA) and cerium oxide (CeO2) composites are presented. CeO2 (at varying concentrations 1, 5 and 10 wt.%) were added to calcinated BHA powder. The resulting ...
A novel method for pulmonary embolism detection in CTA images
In this paper, we propose a new computer-aided detection (CAD) – based method to detect pulmonary embolism (PE) in computed tomography angiography images (CTAI). Since lung vessel segmentation is the main objective to ...
A new method for fabrication of nanohydroxyapatite and TCP from the sea snail cerithium vulgatum
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
Biphasic bioceramic nanopowders of hydroxyapatite (HA) and ß-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) were prepared from shells of the sea snail Cerithium vulgatum (Bruguière, 1792) using a novel chemical method. Calcination of the ...
Nanostructured biomaterials with antimicrobial properties
The present review is intended to bring together the main advances in the field of nanostructured biomaterials with antimicrobial properties. It is generally accepted that the discovery of antibiotics was of great importance ...
