    Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a common complication of obesity. Here, we have shown that activation of the IgG receptor FcγRIIB in endothelium by hyposialylated IgG plays an important role in obesity-induced insulin ...
  • Spatial Angular Compounding Technique for H-Scan Ultrasound Imaging. 

    Khairalseed, Mawia; Xiong, Fangyuan; Kim, Jung-whan; Mattrey, Robert F.; Parker, Kevin J.; Hoyt, Kenneth (2018-10-22)
    H-Scan is a new ultrasound imaging technique that relies on matching a model of pulse-echo formation to the mathematics of a class of Gaussian-weighted Hermite polynomials. This technique may be beneficial in the measurement ...
  • Novel Method for the Formation of Monodisperse Superheated Perfluorocarbon Nanodroplets as Activatable Ultrasound Contrast Agents 

    De, Gracia Lux; Vezeridis, A. M.; Lux, J.; Armstrong, A. M.; Sirsi, Shashank R.; Hoyt, Kenneth; Mattrey, R. F. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-08-20)
