This paper presents an enhanced version of our previous algorithm for point-wise tracking and analysis of cardiac motion based on 3D active mesh model. In the present software, a new 3D active surface model based on curve evolution techniques and level sets is used for automatizing the segmentation of endocardial boundary in the left ventricle in the first(More)
A series of S-alkylated derivatives of 5-mercapto-2'-deoxyuridine have been prepared by alkylation of the preformed nucleoside. Two of these compounds, the S-propargyl and S-allyl derivatives, have shown significant antiviral activity against Herpes simplex type 1 in HeLa TK- cells but appear to be less effective in this assay system than some previously(More)
