Ghrelin levels rise before meals and fall after meal ingestion. The purpose of this study was to investigate factors which regulate ghrelin release into the circulation by determining(More)
We have developed semi-automated and fully-automated tools for the analysis of 3D single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images. The focus is on the efficient boundary delineation of complex 3D structures that enables accurate measurement of their structural and physiologic properties. We employ intensity based thresholding algorithms for(More)
