Ground glass hepatocytes (GGHs) are the historic hallmarks for the hepatocytes in the late and non-replicative stages of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. We have identified type I and type II GGHs that contain two mutant types of large HBV surface antigens (HBsAg) with deletions over the pre-S1 and pre-S2 regions, respectively. These pre-S mutant HBVsAg(More)
A multi-threshold level set model for image segmentations is presented in the paper. The multi-threshold level set formulation uses a speed function for stopping the locations of the active contours. The speed function with multiple thresholds is designed for detecting boundaries of multiple regions of interest (ROI) in images. These thresholds can be(More)
Accuracy of the human face contour can help evaluate the facial orientation to retrieve facial features to identifying or verifying a human facial expression. Automatic extraction human face contour algorithm with high accuracy is necessary. In this paper, a novel flowchart of the face contour extraction algorithm was proposed for improving accuracy of face(More)
This study aimed to investigate the treatment strategy, prognostic factors, and risk factors of early death in elderly patients (age ≥ 65 years) with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in the rituximab era. Data from elderly patients diagnosed with DLBCL between 2008 and 2014 were collected for analysis. Patients who were younger and had a better(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between previous exposure to statins and the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). METHODS This nationwide population-based case-control study was conducted using the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan. The NHL group consisted of the patients with a first-time(More)
—In the paper, we proposed a model called Adaptive Threshold Level Set Without Edge that is applied on the segmentation of GM in brain MR images. Threshold to find the boundary of GM is automatically obtained by fuzzy c mean algorithm. A similarity index (SI) is used for quantitative evaluation of the segmentation results. By testing 134 planar MR brain(More)
