Histotechnik: Praxislehrbuch für die Biomedizinische Analytik

Dieses einmalige Buch zur Histotechnik stellt die unterschiedlichen Techniken, die in einem histologischen hard work angewandt werden, umfassend vor. Diese zweite überarbeitete und aktualisierte Ausgabe wurde um Techniken ergänzt, die in den letzten Jahren entwickelt wurden. So finden sich neben Basisthemen wie Fixierung, Gewebe-Processing und Färbung, die Grundlagen der Immunhistochemie und in-situ-Hybridisierung sowie aktuelle Kapitel zur Molekularpathologie.

Holographic Sensors

This thesis provides a theoretical and experimental technique for the speedy fabrication, optimization and trying out of holographic sensors for the quantification of pH, natural solvents, steel cations, and glucose in options. constructing non-invasive and reusable diagnostics sensors that may be simply synthetic will aid the tracking of high-risk contributors in any scientific or point-of-care environment.

48). Injury to the optic radiations in the temporal lobe result in a distinctive superior quadrantanopia (Fig. 49), since the inferior fibers pass through the temporal lobe as Meyer’s loop (Fig. 47). Injury to the radiations in the parietal lobe results in an inferior quadrantanopia due to injury to the superior fibers of the optic radiations (Fig. 50). Occipital lobe injury results in very congruous homonymous hemianopias, either involving just central vision (occipital tip lesion) or the entire hemifield (Fig.

Chapter 3 The optic nerve ANATOMY Each optic nerve is composed of approximately one million axons from retinal ganglion cells. These axons exit the eye through the lamina cribrosa—where they are most susceptible to damage from either elevated intraocular or intracranial pressure—intermingle with axons from the opposite eye to form the optic chiasm and optic tracts, and finally synapse at the lateral geniculate bodies.

31). All other optic atrophy requires further evaluation to determine its etiology. Neuroimaging is readily available and should be utilized if the cause of the optic atrophy is not obvious. 27 Optic atrophy due to obvious choroidal tears in patient suffering blunt trauma to the eye. 28 Attenuated arterioles and optic atrophy in a patient with an antecedent CRAO.
