Keywords: Active contours Geodesic active contours Chan–Vese model Image segmentation Level set method a b s t r a c t A novel region-based active contour model (ACM) is proposed in this paper. It is implemented with a special processing named Selective Binary and Gaussian Filtering Regularized Level Set (SBGFRLS) method, which first selectively penalizes… (More)
Keywords: Image segmentation Chan–Vese (C–V) model Active contour models LBF model a b s t r a c t A new region-based active contour model that embeds the image local information is proposed in this paper. By introducing the local image fitting (LIF) energy to extract the local image information, our model is able to segment images with intensity… (More)
This paper presents a novel reaction-diffusion (RD) method for implicit active contours that is completely free of the costly reinitialization procedure in level set evolution (LSE). A diffusion term is introduced into LSE, resulting in an RD-LSE equation, from which a piecewise constant solution can be derived. In order to obtain a stable numerical… (More)
— In this paper, we present a novel spatial and spectral fusion model (SASFM) that uses sparse matrix factorization to fuse remote sensing imagery with different spatial and spectral properties. By combining the spectral information from sensors with low spatial resolution (LSaR) but high spectral resolution (HSeR) (hereafter called HSeR sensors), with the… (More)
on two types of data: images primarily with phenology change and images primarily with land-cover type change. Experimental results demonstrate the superiority of SPSTFM in capturing surface reflectance changes on both categories of images.
BACKGROUND Multidrug resistance in cancer is a major obstacle for clinical therapeutics, and is the reason for 90% of treatment failures. This study investigated the efficiency of novel multifunctional Fe(3)O(4) magnetic nanoparticles (Fe(3)O(4)-MNP) combined with chemotherapy and hyperthermia for overcoming multidrug resistance in an in vivo model of… (More)

This study aims to evaluate the multidrug resistance (MDR) reversal activity by magnetic nanoparticles of Fe3O4 (MNPs-Fe3O4) and 5-bromotetrandrine (BrTet) MDR cell line K562/A02 solitarily or symphysially. The proliferation of K562 and K562/A02 cells and the cytotoxicity on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PMBCs) were evaluated by MTT assay. Cellular… (More)
