Materials and Methods: Patients who were admitted to the Emergency Department by pre-hospital emergency ambulance service were included in the study. The standard data registration form was created for the…

Biophysical properties of skin in pregnancy: A controlled study

Aim: It is well-known that there are some physiologic changes in the skin during pregnancy. In this study, we aimed to compare the biophysical changes in the skin of pregnant women with healthy non-pregnant women’s skin. Material and Methods: A total of 60 pregnant women in the third trimester and 30 age-matched healthy volunteers as a control group were included…

Evaluation of projection-based augmented reality technique in cerebral catheter procedures

Aim: In this experimental study, we evaluated the usability of a projection-based augmented reality technique, achieved by projecting cranial computerized tomography images from an external image source onto cattle skull, for localization of the frontal horn of the lateral ventricle and placing ventricular catheter. Materials and Methods: Eleven skulls obtained from fresh cattle cadavers were used for this experimental study.…
