adjective Referring to an interruption in time or space
noun An interruption in time or space
verb To create an interruption in space
Cytology A narrow, slit-like clear space between 2 moulded mesothelial cells, which may be joined to each other by 'articulations'
Imaging noun An interval of photon energies used in a scintillation counter—gamma-ray detector; the so-called ‘pulse height analyser’ rejects any photon energy falling outside of the window—and is thus not counted
verb To adjust a field for optimal visualisation by an imaging modality

Patient discussion about window

Q. what is the window phase for HIV?

A. The 'window' period for HIV infection describes the strong immune defense that reduces the number of viral particles in the blood stream, marking the start of the infection's clinical latency stage. Clinical latency can vary between two weeks and 20 years. During this early phase of infection, HIV is active within lymphoid organs, where large amounts of virus become trapped in the follicular dendritic cells. The surrounding tissues that are rich in CD4+ T cells may also become infected, and viral particles accumulate both in infected cells and as free virus. Individuals who are in this phase are still infectious.
