The severity of aortic stenosis was evaluated by Doppler echocardiography in 48 adults (mean age 67 years) undergoing cardiac catheterization. Maximal Doppler systolic gradient correlated with peak to peak pressure gradient (r = 0.79, y = 0.63x + 25.2 mm Hg) and mean Doppler gradient correlated with mean pressure gradient (r = 0.77, y = 0.59x + 10.0 mm Hg)(More)
The efficacy and toxicity profile of gemcitabine was evaluated in this phase II study of chemonaive patients with locally advanced and metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Eighty patients (62 males, 18 females) were entered into this study. The disease stage was IIIA in ten patients, IIIB in 32, and IV in 38 patients. The median age was 61 (range(More)
Five patients who underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) were studied by two-dimensional echocardiography to assess valve motion. The mitral valve remained open throughout the entire compression-release cycle of CPR. The aortic valve opened during the compression phase of CPR and closed during the release phase. The pulmonic valve moved toward the(More)
Segmentation of tubular structures like blood vessels and airways in 3D volume data is of vital interest for medical applications like diagnosis and surgical planning. The proposed method uses a vessel detection filter, which is based on a novel multiscale medialness function and also provides a radius estimate. Based on the filter ouput, centerlines of the(More)
The anti-parasitic drugs ivermectin (IVM) and moxidectin (MOX) normally show limited brain penetration in vertebrates because of effective drug efflux at the blood-brain barrier by P-glycoprotein, encoded by the multi-drug resistance (MDR1) gene. However, dogs with homozygous nt230(del4) mutation in the MDR1 gene do not express a functionally active(More)
