Threshold selection using a minimal histogram entropy difference
A new gray-level threshold selection method for image segmentation is presented. It is based on minimizing the difference between entropies of the object and the background distributions of theExpand

Motor denervation induces altered muscle fibre type densities and atrophy in a rat model of neuropathic pain
Loose ligation of a sciatic nerve in rats (chronic constriction injury; CCI) provokes sensory, autonomic, and motor disturbances like those observed in humans with partial peripheral nerve injury. SoExpand

Development of vasomotor responses in fetal mesenteric arteries.
Changes in mesenteric arterial diameters were studied using intravital microscopy in chick fetuses at days 13 and 17 of incubation, corresponding to 0.6 and 0.8 fetal incubation time, both during 5Expand

Angiotensin II stimulates angiogenesis in the chorio-allantoic membrane of the chick embryo.
Angiotensin II was applied daily in doses of 67 or 670 ng to a section of the chick embryo chorio-allantoic membrane from day 7 to day 14 after fertilization of the eggs. During this one-week period,Expand

An in vivo model for studying the dynamics of intracellular free calcium changes in slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibres
Abstract. The understanding of the regulation of the free cytosolic [Ca2+] ([Ca2+]i) in skeletal muscle is hampered by the lack of techniques for quantifying free [Ca2+]i in muscle fibres in situ. WeExpand

A rapid regional filling technique for complex binary images
In this paper, a new iterative filling method is proposed that uses a queue data structure and not the allocated stack for the program. Expand

Influence of fluid removal during haemodialysis on macro- and skin microcirculation. Haemodynamic pathophysiologic study of fluid removal during haemodialysis.
Changes of macro- and microcirculation during haemodialysis and fluid removal are probably dependent on ultimate fluid status and on the efficacy of various regulation mechanisms, especially theExpand

Ischemia/reperfusion-induced changes in intracellular free Ca2+ levels in rat skeletal muscle fibers – an in vivo study
Accumulation of intracellular free calcium (Ca2+i) may play an essential role in the ischemia/reperfusion injury of skeletal muscle. Although it has been shown that Ca2+i levels significantlyExpand

Quantitative assessment of [Ca2+]ilevels in rat skeletal muscle in vivo.
Intracellular free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) plays an essential role in physiological regulatory processes and common pathological conditions. Better understanding of these phenomena is stillExpand
