Despite the widespread use of measured real-world materials, intuitive tools for editing measured reflectance datasets are still lacking. We present a solution inspired by natural image matting and texture synthesis to the <i>material matting</i> problem, which allows separating a measured spatially-varying material into simpler foreground and background(More)
Aplidin is an antitumour drug, currently undergoing phase II evaluation in different haematological and solid tumours. In this study, we analysed the antimyeloma effects of Aplidin in the syngeneic 5T33MM model, which is representable for the human disease. In vitro, Aplidin inhibited 5T33MMvv DNA synthesis with an IC(50) of 3.87 nM. On cell-cycle(More)
The mission of the SciDAC Institute for Ultrascale Visualization is to address the upcoming petascale visualization challenges. As we move to petascale computation, we are seeing a trend not only in the growth but also in the consolidation of computing resources. As the distances between user and petascale visualization resources grow, the expected(More)
We present a new technique for fusing together an arbitrary number of aligned images into a single color or intensity image. We approach this fusion problem from the context of Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) and describe an algorithm that preserves the relative distances between pairs of pixel values in the input (vectors of measurements) as perceived(More)
Hypertonia of the upper limb due to spasticity causes pronation of the forearm and flexion of wrist and fingers. Nowadays this spasticity is often treated with injections of botulinum toxin and sometimes with selective fascicular neurotomy. To correctly perform this microsurgical technique, it is necessary to get precise knowledge of the extramuscular nerve(More)
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) as an excisional procedure involving multiple incisions into the prostate does not differentiate between palpably benign prostate tissue and microscopic foci of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. The impact of TURP on the progression of such 'latent' or 'incidental' tumours unique to the prostate gland has(More)
INTRODUCTION The intercostal nerves (ICN) transfer to the musculocutaneous nerve (MCN) can restore elbow flexion in complete brachial plexus palsy. The last cases our service dealt with, allowed our staff to observe two different situations. In the 2 first patients, we were able to proceed with an intraneurodissection of the MCN motor component up to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Used routinely in maxillofacial reconstructive surgery, the chondrocostal graft is also used in hand surgery. The purpose of this overview was to analyze at long follow-up the radiological and histological evolution of this autograft, in the hand and wrist surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Since 1992, 144 patients have benefitted from a(More)
Rupture of the extensor pollicis longus (EPL) tendon in the wrist is a delayed complication that can occur after wrist injury. Several etiology-related hypotheses have been made to explain these ruptures. The one most commonly accepted is necrosis at the musculotendinous junction of the EPL, which is compressed between the extensor retinaculum and dorsal(More)
Wolbachia pipientis is a worldwide bacterial parasite of arthropods that infects germline cells and manipulates host reproduction to increase the ratio of infected females, the transmitting sex of the bacteria. The most common reproductive manipulation, cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI), is expressed as embryonic death in crosses between infected males and(More)
