With the advent of Web 2.0, we see a new and differentiated scenario: there is more data than that can be effectively analyzed. Organizing this data has become one of the biggest problems in Computer Science. Many algorithms have been proposed for this purpose, highlighting those related to the Data Mining area, specifically the clustering algorithms.(More)
The authors report on 13 eyes in 13 patients, 60 years of age or older, with idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy, a condition that typically presents in adults between the ages of 30 and 50 years. In older patients, this condition can easily be mistaken for macular degeneration with subretinal neovascularization. None of the patients in this series(More)
Laser photocoagulation in a grid pattern is effective in many eyes in resolving diffuse diabetic macular edema and stabilizing vision. We retrospectively studied 203 eyes of 203 patients, all of whom had diabetic macular edema treated with grid laser photocoagulation. During the follow-up period, 11 of these 203 eyes developed enlargement of the laser scars(More)
We reviewed 88 consecutive eyes that underwent vitrectomy for retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and were followed a minimum of six months. A primary goal of the surgery was the meticulous trimming of the vitreous base in hopes of decreasing the incidence of post-operative reproliferation and anterior PVR. Those eyes with anterior(More)
The scattering of acoustic waves in non-homogeneous media has been of practical interest for the petroleum industry, mainly in the determination of new oil deposits. A family of computational models that represent this phenomenon is based on finite difference methods. The simulation of these phenomena demands a high computational cost. In this work we(More)
In biopsic material collected from the frontal cortex of 6 patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) and 5 patients with posterior fossa tumors, we estimated the neuronal and synaptic numerical densities as well as the mean volume of the neurons from layers II and III. The thickness of these layers was also determined. The evaluation of the(More)
