We hypothesized that a prior history of a major depressive disorder would not compromise the efficacy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), a coronary revascularization procedure, in improving quality of life and health status when comparing patients with no previous history. To determine the utility of screening for risk for depression(More)
A method is described for interfacing a cadmium telluride semiconductor nonimaging detector to a personal microcomputer in order to store and display nuclear medicine data. There was virtual identity between the count rates stored in the computer and those recorded from the detector's display, demonstrating that the computer accurately acquired data from(More)
Umbrella species are employed as conservation short-cuts for the design of reserves or reserve networks. However, empirical data on the effectiveness of umbrellas is equivocal, which has prevented more widespread application of this conservation strategy. We perform a novel, large-scale evaluation of umbrella species by assessing the potential umbrella(More)
As part of a national strategy for recovering tiger populations, the Myanmar Government recently proposed its first and the world’s largest tiger reserve in the Hukaung Valley, Kachin State. During November 2002–June 2004, camera-traps were used to record tigers, identify individuals, and, using capture–recapture approaches, estimate density in the reserve.(More)
A non-stationary optimal smoothing filter for digital nuclear medicine image data, degraded by Poisson noise, has been derived and applied to temporal simulated and clinical gated blood pool study (GBPS) data. The derived filter is automatically calculated from a large group (library) of similar GBPS which are representative of all studies acquired(More)
