The deployment of a vascular stent aims to increase lumen diameter for the restoration of blood flow, but the accompanied alterations in the mechanical environment possibly affect the long-term patency of these devices. The primary aim of this investigation was to develop an algorithm to optimize stent design, allowing for consideration of competing solid(More)
A common situation in experimental physics is to have a signal which can not be separated from a non-interfering background through the use of any cut. In this paper, we describe a procedure for determining, on an event-by-event basis, a quality factor (Q-factor) that a given event originated from the signal distribution. This Q-factor can then be used as(More)
