We have developed a video-rate stereo machine that has the capability of generating a dense depth map at the video rate. The performance bench marks of the CMU video-rate stereo machine are: 1) multi image input of up to 6 cameras; 2) throughput of 30 million point × disparity measurement per second; 3) frame rate of 30 frame/sec; 4) a dense depth map of up(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate factors associated with radiation-induced bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) syndrome after breast-conserving therapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS A total of 702 women with breast cancer who received radiotherapy after breast-conserving surgery at seven institutions between July 1995 and December 2006 were analyzed. In all(More)
The antisaccade task has been widely used to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying volitional movement control. In this task, subjects suppress reflexive saccades to the sudden appearance of peripheral visual stimuli (prosaccades) and generate a saccade in the opposite direction. Recent imaging studies suggest that the globus pallidus (GP) is(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is the most important pathogen in nosocomial infections, including bloodstream infections. Prompt identification of S. aureus from blood cultures and detection of methicillin resistance are essential in cases of suspected sepsis. A novel nucleic acid amplification technique, loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), which(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to characterize placenta-specific microRNAs in fetal growth restriction (FGR) pregnancy. METHOD Placenta-specific miRNAs were identified by next-generation sequencing analysis. Subsequently, quantitative real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction was used to identify FGR placenta-specific miRNAs whose(More)
HYPOTHESIS The appropriate surgical treatment of patients with colorectal cancer who are found on initial presentation to have stage IV disease is controversial. With presumed limited life expectancy, the role of primary colon or rectal resection has been questioned, as has the utility of synchronous hepatic resection. DESIGN A retrospective chart review.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term incidence of venous complications, including portal vein and hepatic vein stenoses, in both whole cadaveric and reduced-size cadaveric and living related liver transplants in a pediatric population, and to assess the therapeutic modalities in the treatment of these lesions. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA A shortage in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the preventive effect of vaccination using fusion protein (gD-IL-2) consisting of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) glycoprotein D (gD), and human interleukin-2 (IL-2), and plasmid DNA encoding gD-IL-2 against murine herpetic keratitis. METHODS Plasmid containing gD-IL-2 (pHDLneo1) was constructed, and gD-IL-2 peptide was purified.(More)
Minimally invasive procedures are considered to be safe and effective approaches to the management of surgical liver disease. However, this indication remains controversial for living donor hepatectomy. Between 2000 and 2011, living donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) was performed 58 times. Standard right hepatectomy was performed in 30 patients via a subcostal(More)
This study was designed to investigate the use of primaquine in malaria control in the Khmer Republic (Cambodia). Blood was drawn from 106 male Khmer Air Force troops for analysis of hemoglobin E and glucose-6-phosphate (G-6-PD) deficiency. A test group of 15 men with G-6-PD deficiency and a group of 31 normal controls were given 15 mg of primaquine each(More)
