BACKGROUND Low uptake ratios, high noise, poor resolution, and low contrast all combine to make the detection of neuroendocrine liver tumours by (111)In-octreotide single photon emission tomography (SPECT) imaging a challenge. The aim of this study was to develop a segmentation analysis method that could improve the accuracy of hepatic neuroendocrine tumour(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial volume (ICV) growth in patients with bilateral coronal craniosynostosis (BCS) is not well described. It is therefore important to evaluate the consequences of cranial surgery in children with this condition. The aim of the present study was to evaluate ICVs in patients operated on for BCS. METHODS A consecutive series of patients(More)
We analyze the non-Abelian Read–Rezayi quantum Hall states on the torus, where it is natural to employ a mapping of the many-body problem onto a one-dimensional lattice model. On the thin torus—the Tao–Thouless (TT) limit—the interacting many-body problem is exactly solvable. The Read–Rezayi states at filling ν = k/(kM + 2) are known to be exact ground(More)
Metopic synostosis results in a keel-shaped forehead, reduced frontal intracranial volume (ICV), and lower frontal to total volume ratio. The ratio improves with cranioplasty, but at 3 years of age, the ratio is still not normalized when compared to that in normal children. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether a low frontal to total ICV(More)
Premature sagittal synostosis results in an elongated, narrow skull shape, scaphocephaly. It has been unclear whether the intracranial volume (ICV) of these children is different from that of normal children. The aim of the present study was to precisely determine the ICV in a large cohort of children with premature sagittal synostosis and to compare it to(More)
