Time-correlated single photon counting and burst illumination laser data can be used for range profiling and target classification. In general, the problem is to analyze the response from a histogram of either photon counts or integrated intensities to assess the number, positions, and amplitudes of the reflected returns from object surfaces. The goal of(More)
BACKGROUND Growth factor technologies are increasingly used to enhance healing in musculoskeletal injuries, particularly in sports medicine. Two such products; platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and autologous blood, have a growing body of supporting evidence. No previous trial has directly compared the efficacy of these two methods. HYPOTHESIS Growth factor(More)
We introduce the Hierarchical Partitioned Particle Filter (HPPF) designed specifically for articulated human tracking. The HPPF is motivated by the hierarchical dependency between the human body parameters and the partial independence between certain of those parameters. The tracking is model based and follows the analysis by synthesis principle. The(More)
We describe a novel architecture for automotive vision organized on five levels of abstraction, i.e., sensor, data, semantic, reasoning, and resource allocation levels, respectively. Although we implement and evaluate processes to detect and classify other participants within the immediate environment of a moving vehicle, our main emphasis is on the(More)
We describe improvements to a time-of-flight sensor utilising the time-correlated single-photon counting technique employing a commercially-available silicon-based photon-counting module. By making modifications to the single-photon detection circuitry and the data analysis techniques, we experimentally demonstrate improved resolution between multiple(More)
AIMS To assess semiquantitative immunohistochemistry as used in the diagnosis of Lynch syndrome. METHODS AND RESULTS Tumour sections from 51 mutation carriers and 17 controls were stained with antibodies against MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2. Intensity of immunoreactivity and percentage positivity were recorded on scales of 0-3 and 0-4, respectively. These(More)
BACKGROUND Emergence agitation (EA) is a common behavioral disturbance after sevoflurane anesthesia in children. Propofol 1 mg · kg(-1) bolus at the end of sevoflurane anesthesia has had mixed results in reducing the incidence of EA, whereas propofol infusion throughout anesthesia maintenance seems effective but is more complex to administer. If a simple,(More)
