Surface-topography has been used for almost two decades in the radiation-free clinical evaluation of spinal posture. So far, it was limited to the analysis of back surface and spine. In order to better understand, diagnose and treat complex spinal pathologies, it is important to measure the whole torso.

Recently, the production of well-defined patterned surfaces with random or regular micro and nano-features has brought new opportunities for research and development in the field of tissue engineering...
Surface topography is a radiation-free examination that provides relevant information for the evaluation of patients with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS). However, its usage is not standardized,...
The effect of topography in 3D printed polymer scaffolds on stem cell differentiation is a significantly under-explored area. Compared to 2D biomaterials on which various well-defined topographies hav...
Evaluate in-vitro the changes in the implant surface topography of commercial implants after instrumentation with five decontamination protocols.
Human bone resorption surfaces can provide a template for endosseous implant surface design. We characterized the topography of such sites using four synergistic parameters (fractal dimension, lacunar...
The main objective of the study is to investigate the correlation between the measurement of the Cobb angle (angle of scoliosis) by conventional radiography and angle measured by surface t...
Background and Rationale: LASIK has been among the highest satisfaction rates of surgical procedures, ranging from 82%-98%. Different ablation profiles have been developed over the years....
The present study aims to assess the accuracy of a newly developed Android Smartphone Application in measuring the degree of Neuromuscular block in the perioperative period. This will be ...
FLIP topography has been FDA cleared to evaluate a variety of esophageal conditions, but has never been evaluated in patients with scleroderma. The investigators hope to evaluate this tech...
The investigators are analyzing outcomes of topography-guided LASIK surgery in participants with myopia and myopic astigmatism
Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.
An application that must be submitted to a regulatory agency (the FDA in the United States) before a drug can be studied in humans. This application includes results of previous experiments; how, where, and by whom the new studies will be conducted; the chemical structure of the compound; how it is thought to work in the body; any toxic effects found in animal studies; and how the compound is manufactured. (From the "New Medicines in Development" Series produced by the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association and published irregularly.)
The quality or state of being wettable or the degree to which something can be wet. This is also the ability of any solid surface to be wetted when in contact with a liquid whose surface tension is reduced so that the liquid spreads over the surface of the solid.
The systematic surveying, mapping, charting, and description of specific geographical sites, with reference to the physical features that were presumed to influence health and disease. Often associated with Hippocrates, the process became a significant part of public health investigation and epidemiological methodology, particularly between the 17th and 19th centuries. Medical topography should be differentiated from EPIDEMIOLOGY in that the former emphasizes geography whereas the latter emphasizes disease outbreaks. (Dr. James H. Cassedy, NLM History of Medicine Division)
Reducing the SURFACE TENSION at a liquid/solid interface by the application of an electric current across the interface thereby enhancing the WETTABILITY of the surface.
