A procedure which incorporates the aspects of both correction matrix and digital filtering to compensate for sensitivity fall-off of the surface coil has been applied to clinical imaging. In this method the surface coil profile is determined using the surface coil image and a crude body coil image. Our results indicate that the corrected surface coil image(More)
A common type of reliability data is the right censored time-to-failure data. In this article, we developed a control chart to monitor the time-to-failure data in the presence of right censoring using weighted rank tests. On the basis of the asymptotic properties of the rank statistics, we derived the generic formulae for the operating characteristic(More)
The Proportional Hazards (PH) model is an important type of failure time regression model which relates the occurrence probability of critical failures to influential factors. However, little research work has been done on detecting changes in the PH models fitted based on different sets of reliability data. This paper develops the methods for change(More)
