OBJECTIVES Even after successful aortic coarctation repair, there remains a significant incidence of late systemic hypertension and other morbidities. Independently of residual obstruction, aortic arch morphology alone may affect cardiac function and outcome. We sought to uncover the relationship of arch 3-dimensional shape features with functional data(More)
AIM While the overall concept of aortic coarctation has changed from one of simple obstruction to one that includes significant vascular dysfunction, this has not yet been translated into the diagnostic and treatment process. To close this gap, we sought to demonstrate the usefulness of an additional non-invasive vascular profile. METHOD During a pilot(More)
Predicting the future popularity of online content is highly important in many applications. Under preferential attachment influence popular items get more popular thereby resulting in long tailed distribution problem. Consequently, new items which can be popular (potential ones), are suppressed by the already popular items. This paper proposes a novel(More)
Patients with repaired coarctation of the aorta are thought to have increased afterload due to abnormalities in vessel structure and function. We have developed a novel cardiovascular magnetic resonance protocol that allows assessment of central hemodynamics, including central aortic systolic blood pressure, resistance, total arterial compliance, pulse wave(More)
PURPOSE To develop and validate a rapid breath-hold tissue phase mapping (TPM) sequence. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sequence was based on an efficient uniform density spiral acquisition, combined with data acceleration. A novel acquisition and reconstruction strategy enabled combination of UNFOLD (2×) and SENSE (3×): UNFOLD-ed SENSE. The sequence was(More)
Identifying emerging influential or popular node/item in future on network is a current interest of the researchers. Most of previous works focus on identifying leaders in time evolving networks on the basis of network structure or node’s activity separate way. In this paper, we have proposed a hybrid model which considers both, node’s structural centrality(More)
OBJECTIVE Today's growing medical image databases call for novel processing tools to structure the bulk of data and extract clinically relevant information. Unsupervised hierarchical clustering may reveal clusters within anatomical shape data of patient populations as required for modern precision medicine strategies. Few studies have applied hierarchical(More)
