A computer-aided detection (CAD) system for the selection of lung nodules in computer tomography (CT) images is presented. The system is based on region growing (RG) algorithms and a new active contour model (ACM), implementing a local convex hull, able to draw the correct contour of the lung parenchyma and to include the pleural nodules. The CAD consists(More)
A fully automated and three-dimensional (3D) segmentation method for the identification of the pulmonary parenchyma in thorax X-ray computed tomography (CT) datasets is proposed. It is meant to be used as pre-processing step in the computer-assisted detection (CAD) system for malignant lung nodule detection that is being developed by the Medical(More)
: Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to reduce brain damage due to postcardiac arrest syndrome. Actually, there is no agreement on which is the best device to perform therapeutic hypothermia. The 'ideal' device should not only 'cool' patient until 33-34°C as fast as possible, but also maintain the target temperature and reverse the therapeutic(More)

We present observations of the 350 m { 1.3 mm continuum emission of a sample of ten Class I young stellar objects in the Lynds 1641 (L1641) molecular cloud. These observations, together with IRAS data, are used to determine and discuss the properties of the circumstellar dust. We interpret these results in an evolutionary scheme and we nd that, in our(More)
BACKGROUND Data on the hemodynamic and cardiovascular effects of hypothermia in patients with cardiac arrest are scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hemodynamic changes induced by hypothermia by means of Most Care(®) (pressure recording analytical method, PRAM methodology), a beat-to-beat hemodynamic monitoring method. METHODS We enrolled 20(More)
