Atkins, C. Brian. Ph.D., Purdue University, December 1998. Classification-Based Methods in Optimal Image Interpolation. Major Professors: Charles A. Bouman and Jan P. Allebach. In this thesis, we introduce two new approaches to optimal image interpolation which are based on the idea that image data falls into different categories or classes, such as edges(More)
Adrenarche is the increased adrenal production of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) that occurs during the prepubertal period. To date, the exact mechanism initiating adrenarche is unknown, although many factors have been postulated. In the present study, we examined the hypothesis that alterations in intra-adrenal(More)
The increased production of adrenal dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and DHEA-sulfate (DHEAS) which occurs during the prepubertal period is known as adrenarche. One hypothesis for adrenarche is that alterations in intra-adrenal expression of steroidogenic enzymes within the inner reticularis zone leads to the increased production of 19-carbon steroids. We(More)

Oropharyngeal angioedema is a potentially disastrous perioperative airway complication. The anesthesiologist must efficiently diagnose and treat progressive airway obstruction, a process that involves differentiating between mechanical, pathologic, and reactive causes. Angioedema developing from angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) therapy is a(More)
