OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to try to delineate the esophageal passage under dynamic conditions and to determine optimum settings for esophageal magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. METHODS Ten healthy volunteers underwent MR fluoroscopy with two T1-weighted sequences: turbo field echo (TFE) and T1-weighted fast field echo (T1-FFE). These(More)
This paper presents a novel segmentation algorithm for offline cursive handwriting recognition. An over-segmentation algorithm is introduced to dissect the words from handwritten text based on the pixel density between upper and lower baselines. Each segment from the over-segmentation is passed to a multiple expert-based validation process. First expert(More)

Blog is increasingly becoming an important source of information. Blog community is a kind of a group of bloggers with the same interest and common topics on the Internet. To use blog resources effectively, one important way is to identify blog communities and their members in order to refine the blog circle. In this paper, we first define the blog(More)
The present study was aimed at assessing whether epidermal growth factor (EGF) and its receptors are present in the gastric mucosa during the healing of gastric ulcers. Immunohistochemical, immunochemical and functional studies were performed in rats after induction of ulcers in the oxyntic mucosa. Controls, which included non-operated and sham-operated(More)
The heritability of some individual depressive symptoms has been well established. However, the causal genes related to individual depressive symptoms and genetic effects on the courses of individual depressive symptoms are still unclear. We examined these issues in 241 Korean patients who met the DSM-IV-TR criteria for major depression. Patients entered a(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal insufficiency may increase the risk of hypoglycemia in hospitalized patients with diabetes who are treated with insulin. We randomized inpatients with type 2 diabetes and chronic renal failure to treatment with two different dose levels of insulin glargine and glulisine and studied control of hyperglycemia and the frequency of hypoglycemia.(More)
Over-Segmentation and Validation (OSV) is a well anticipated segmentation strategy in cursive off-line handwriting recognition. Over-Segmentation is a means of locating all possible character boundaries, and the excessive segmentation points called over-segmentation points. Validation is a process to check and validate the segmentation points whether or not(More)
