Summary of "Infrared spectroscopy as a novel tool to diagnose onychomycosis."

The determination of causative organisms of onychomycosis is still not optimal. There remains a need for a cheap, fast and easy-to-perform diagnostic tool with highly distinctive capacities.

Analysis of protein glycation in human fingernail clippings with near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy as an alternative technique for the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus.

Glycated keratin allows the monitoring of average tissue glucose exposure over previous weeks. In the present study, we wanted to explore if near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy could be used as a non-inv...

Part II: Onychomycosis: Treatment and Prevention of Recurrence.

Onychomycosis is a fungal nail infection caused by dermatophytes, non-dermatophytes, and yeast and is the most common nail disorder seen in clinical practice. It is an important problem, as it may cau...

Spectroscopic analysis of normal and neoplastic (WI-FTC) thyroid tissue.

Thyroid cancer holds the first place of the malignant tumors of the endocrine system. One of the less common thyroid cancers is follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC), which is very difficult to diagnose ...

Detection of Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton interdigitale in onychomycosis using monoclonal antibodies against Sub6 (Tri r 2).

Onychomycosis is the most prevalent nail disease and is mainly caused by two dermatophyte species Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton interdigitale with a frequency in the range of 80% and 20%, respe...

Systematic spectral shifts in the mid-infrared spectroscopy of aerosols.

Infrared spectroscopy in the spectral fingerprint region from 6.5 to 20 µm has been applied for decades to identify vapor- and condensed-phase chemicals with high confidence. By employing a unique br...

Investigators aim to study efficiency of systemic thrombolytic therapy on acute ischemic stroke patients with near infrared spectroscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A noninvasive technique that uses the differential absorption properties of hemoglobin and myoglobin to evaluate tissue oxygenation and indirectly can measure regional hemodynamics and blood flow. Near-infrared light (NIR) can propagate through tissues and at particular wavelengths is differentially absorbed by oxygenated vs. deoxygenated forms of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Illumination of intact tissue with NIR allows qualitative assessment of changes in the tissue concentration of these molecules. The analysis is also used to determine body composition.

A spectroscopic technique in which a range of wavelengths is presented simultaneously with an interferometer and the spectrum is mathematically derived from the pattern thus obtained.

Measurement of the regional temperature of the body or an organ by infrared sensing devices, based on self-emanating infrared radiation.

Spectroscopy technique which measures changes in organic compounds by tracking the spectral energy of absorption of HYDROGEN atoms.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.
