The Piezojunction Effect in Silicon Integrated Circuits and Sensors

Mechanical rigidity impacts the value of base-emitter voltages of ahead biased bipolar transistors. This phenomenon is termed the piezojunction impact. The piezojunction influence is the most explanation for inaccuracy and glide in built-in temperature sensors and bandgap voltage references. the purpose of The Piezojunction influence in SiliconIntegrated Circuits and Sensors is twofold.

Several studies have shown it to achieve superior performance to the previous ‘gold standard’ perfusion imaging technique, SPECT. One, comparing 82Rb PET and 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT, demonstrated PET to outperform SPECT in image quality, interpretative certainty, and diagnostic accuracy using either a 50% or 70% angiographic threshold (accuracy of 87% versus 71% with a 50% threshold and 89% versus 79% with a 70% threshold). Image quality was deemed excellent for 78% and 79% of rest and stress PET scans, respectively, as against 62% and 62% of respective SPECT scans.

Perfusion PET/CT, especially when calcium scoring is included, provides accurate information about the burden of atherosclerotic disease, but it is well recognised that functional plaque characteristics such as the degree of associated vascular inflammation are very important in determining plaque stability and therefore the risk of rupture and thrombosis that underlies most myocardial infarctions. , 2012). , 2009). , 2012), and such approaches may prove useful tools for individualized risk stratification, prevention of thrombotic events and monitoring of therapeutic responses.

Nitroimidazoles, of which the most important is 18F-fluoromisonidazole (FMISO) (see Plate VI in the colour section between pages 182 and 183), are organic compounds that also include the antibiotic metronidazole. They are reduced intracellularly and then washed out of normal cells within a few hours. In hypoxic cells, they undergo further reductive reactions and persist within the cell (Molecular Imaging and Contrast Agent Database (MICAD), 2004). Although this differential metabolism can be used to map and measure regions of tumour hypoxia using PET/CT, FMISO suffers from a poor target-to-background contrast ratio and the need to wait for several hours before imaging for washout from normal cells.
