This paper proposes a novel intelligent intra-field interpolation for motion compensated deinterlacing. This method combines the advantage of cubic curve fitting interpolation and fuzzy edge interpolation to overcome resolution degradation caused by incorrect motion vector. The intelligent intra-field interpolation scheme alleviates resolution degradation(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVE To report a long segment epidural hematoma with thoracic cord compression caused by a metastatic carcinoma. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA To our knowledge, there have been no previous reports of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma caused by metastatic carcinoma. METHODS A 60-year-old woman with back pain and(More)
Constrictive pericarditis (CP) following hemopericardium has been reported in the literature but its pathogenesis is open to question. Proposed mechanisms include trauma leading to damage of the mesothelial lining resulting in decreased fibrinolytic activity in the presence of blood. We present a patient who sustained blunt thoracoabdominal trauma in a car(More)
A 29-year-old woman who was pregnant for 12 weeks presented with headache for one week and drowsiness for two days. Computed tomography of the brain revealed multifocal hematomas with mass effect. Decompressive craniectomy was done to relieve the increased intracranial pressure. Magnetic resonance angiography and cerebral angiography were subsequently(More)
Tunnel pressure (TP) has been linked to carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), but the clinical significance of TP is still under investigation. The present study included 58 hands that were diagnosed with idiopathic CTS by nerve conduction velocity (NCV) and received divisions of the flexor retinaculum through a mini-open procedure. Preoperative and postoperative(More)
