Summary of "PLoS Genetics Issue Image | Vol. 15(3) February 2019."

Pigs are an excellent model to study harmful mutations causing embryonic lethality in homozygous affected individuals. In their study, Derks et al. identified five such recessive loci that impair the function of essential genes causing embryonic lethality in pigs. The lethal recessives affect up to 3% of the population litters, responsible for the death of 1 in 200 embryos. The study is intended to be used to lower the frequency of these harmful mutations to improve fertility in popular commercial pig breeds. See Derks et al. Download March's cover page.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

Formerly a constituent republic of Yugoslavia, comprising the Yugoslav section of the region of Macedonia. It was made a constituent republic in the 1946 constitution. It became independent on 8 February 1994 and was recognized as The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia by the United States Board on Geographic Names 16 February 1994.

The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph.

A visual image which is recalled in accurate detail. It is a sort of projection of an image on a mental screen.

Improvement in the quality of an x-ray image by use of an intensifying screen, tube, or filter and by optimum exposure techniques. Digital processing methods are often employed.
