This study examines the long-run relationship between carbon emissions and energy consumption, income and foreign trade in the case of China by employing time series data of 1975–2005. In particular the study aims at testing whether environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) relationship between CO2 emissions and per capita real GDP holds in the long run or not.(More)
The absorption of K(+) by excised roots of barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv California Mariout) has been systematically compared with that of entire, undisturbed seedlings. Some experiments have also been done with wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and an amphiploid obtained from a cross between it and salt-tolerant tall wheatgrass (Lophopyrum elongatum Host Löve(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study is to show the effectiveness of Factor IX complex concentrate (FIXCC) for rapid reversal of an elevated International Normalized Ratio (INR) in patients with anticoagulation-associated intracerebral hemorrhage (AAICH). METHODS We, retrospectively, analyzed the clinical data of 19 patients with the diagnosis of(More)
Non-local means de-noising is a simple but effective image restoration method. It exploits usual redundancy found in real-life images. It computes similarity between patches of pixels, in a non-local window, instead of pixels themselves. This similarity measure defines participation/weight of each pixel in the de-noising process. In this research study,(More)
The histopathological examination of tissue specimens is necessary for the diagnosis and grading of colon cancer. However, the process is subjective and leads to significant inter/intra observer variation in diagnosis as it mainly relies on the visual assessment of histopathologists. Therefore, a reliable computer-aided technique, which can automatically(More)
In recent years, classification of colon biopsy images has become an active research area. Traditionally, colon cancer is diagnosed using microscopic analysis. However, the process is subjective and leads to considerable inter/intra observer variation. Therefore, reliable computer-aided colon cancer detection techniques are in high demand. In this paper, we(More)
Texture is a combination of repeated patterns with regular/irregular frequency. It can only be visualized but hard to describe in words. Liver structure exhibit similar behavior, it has maximum disparity in intensity texture inside and along boundary which serves as a major problem in its segmentation and classification. Problem gets more complicated when(More)
Colon cancer diagnosis based on microscopic analysis of biopsy sample is a common medical practice. However, the process is subjective, biased and leads to interobserver variability. Further, histopathologists have to analyze many biopsy samples per day. Therefore, factors such as tiredness, experience and workload of histopathologists also affect the(More)
Denoizing of magnetic resonance (MR) brain images has been focus of numerous studies in the past. The performance of subsequent stages of image processing, in automated image analysis, is substantially improved by explicit consideration of noise. Nonlocal means (NLM) is a popular denoizing method which exploits usual redundancy present in an image to(More)
