Image denoising problem can be addressed as an inverse problem. One of the most recent approaches to solve an inverse problem is a sparse decomposition over overcomplete dictionaries. In sparse representation, images are represented as a linear combination of dictionary atoms. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for image denoising based on Orthogonal(More)
The application of immunocytochemistry in the field of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is well established. This study evaluates the use of pan-cytokeratins (AE1/AE3, MNF116 and AE1/AE3+PCK26) in the assessment of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) on frozen tissue debulk specimens. Fifty-five cases of BCC, all from head and facial sites, were assessed in the(More)
The use of tissue softening agents to improve microtomy of keratotic tissues is employed widely. Many of these softeners contain hazardous constituents such as phenol. In this study, the use of non-ionic surfactants or non-toxic ingredients are investigated with the aim of creating a new softening agent. The new agent should be more effective in(More)
BACKGROUND Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) involves evaluation of frozen tissue sections to determine complete circumferential and deep tissue margin clearance of skin tumours. PrestoCHILL and Presto stainer devices are two new innovative tools which bring benefits of automation, speed and efficiency to the preparation of frozen section analysis in MMS. The(More)
