Cochlear implants work well, yet the outcome is not fully accounted by the data routinely available to the clinician, and remains unpredictable. A more in-depth understanding of the neural mechanisms that determine the clinical recovery after cochlear implantation is warranted, as they may provide the background for an accurate individual prognosis. In this(More)
INTRODUCTION With the advancement of technology, Electronic Learning (E-Learning) now is more of the rule than the exception. E-learning has been the synonym for online learning, web-based learning, computer-based learning, in the fields of education, business, and information technology. E-learning utilizes a wide spectrum of technologies including(More)
A 17-year-old woman presented with a left upper eyelid coloboma from birth, extending from the lateral side of the punctum to the center of the eyelid as much as 10 mm in width. The posterior lamella (tarsus) was lost completely in this area, but an anterior lamella defect was limited to 1 to 2 mm in height. The area was devoid of eyelashes. Part of the(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the outcomes of initial and repeated office-based probing as a primary treatment for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) in children. METHODS The medical records of patients who underwent nasolacrimal duct office-based probing for CNLDO between March 2004 and January 2008 were reviewed retrospectively. Nasolacrimal(More)
The digital halftoning is a gray level rendition in the devices that have the limited gray representation capabilities. The major evaluation points of the digital halftoning methods are the image quality and the processing speed. A new halftoning method using non-thresholding process is proposed, which simply constructs a halftoning database to achieve real(More)
INTRODUCTION To investigate the extraocular muscle (EOM) changes in thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) on DTI and the correlations between DTI parameters and clinical features. METHODS Twenty TAO patients and 20 age- and sex-matched controls provided informed consent and were enrolled. Ten-directional DTI was acquired in orbit. Fractional anisotropy(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to analyze upper and lower eyelid contours in adult patients with thyroid eye disease (TED) and normal adults using a software program that measures multiple radial midpupil lid distance (MPLD). METHODS Analysis targeted 61 eyes from 61 normal adults who had never undergone eyelid surgery or ophthalmic surgery and 63 eyes(More)
