microscopy

(mi?kros'ko-pe) [ micro- + -scopy]
Inspection with a microscope.

confocal microscopy

Microscopy that permits high-resolution analysis of serial optical sections (microscopic tomograms) into the depths of tissues or cells.

epiluminescence microscopy

Dermatoscopy.

multiphoton microscopy

Abbreviation: MPM
A means of imaging tissues deep within the body by infrared fluorescence. The technique relies on the absorption of two photons directed into tissues by a pulsed infrared laser. It can be applied to the visualization of tissues beneath the body surface and to optical biopsy.

video microscopy

The use of movie-making techniques, such as time-lapse photography, to obtain highly magnified microscopic images of tissues, thereby allowing observation of cellular processes as they occur.

model

(mod'el)
1. A pattern or form used to make a replica, as a cast or impression of teeth in dentistry.
2. A person or thing worthy of emulation or imitation.
3. A diagram representing an idea, phenomenon, or statistical relationship among variables.
4. A framework or system for organizing ideas and representing hypotheses or theories.

animal model

The study of anatomy, physiology, or pathology in laboratory animals in order to apply the results to human function and disease.

clubhouse model

A peer/staff collaborative approach for supporting independent community living by people with mental illnesses.

conceptual model

A set of abstract and general concepts and statements about those concepts.
Synonym: conceptual framework; conceptual system; paradigm (2)

conceptual model of nursing

See: conceptual models of nursing.

fluid mosaic model

A representation of the structure of the cell membrane, in which protein molecules are dispersed in a phospholipid bilayer.

model of human occupation

Abbreviation: MOHO
A conceptual framework for viewing occupational therapy practice, aimed at improving the patient's organization of time, overall function, and adaptation as reflected in the performance of occupations. Within this framework, intervention includes strategies for fostering skill development and habit changes through role acquisition, improved self-image, and environmental changes.

mortality prediction model

Abbreviation: MPM
A rating system of the severity of illness of patients admitted to an ICU. It includes the patient's age, need for vasoconstricting drugs (blood pressure), kidney function, urinary output, coagulation status, oxygenation, need for mechanical ventilation, mental status, liver health, cancer diagnosis (if any), and the presence of mass lesions in the brain.

Nagi disablement model

See: Nagi disablement model

nursing model

A conceptual model that refers to abstract and general ideas about human beings, their environments and health, and nursing.
See: conceptual models of nursing

stochastic model

A statistical model that attempts to account for randomness. The model aims to reproduce the sequence of events likely to occur in real life.

study model

A diagnostic cast of an impression of the dental arches or a part thereof, trimmed with the arches articulated and the edges perpendicular to the occlusal plane. The study model serves as the basis for construction of dental appliances, dentures, or orthodontic treatment.
