We tested for cortical shape abnormalities using surface-based morphometry across a range of autism spectrum disorders (7.5-18 years of age). We generated sulcal depth maps from structural magnetic resonance imaging data and compared typically developing controls to three autism spectrum disorder subgroups: low-functioning autism, high-functioning autism,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Cross Infections (CIs) are considered as a major public health problem worldwide. They cause delay in recovery, increased mortality and morbidity. The purpose of this study is to report the incidence of CIs in our teaching hospital during a 23-month period. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this descriptive cross-sectional study, 76766(More)
Modern image processing techniques increasingly use prior models of the expected distribution of objects. Principal component eigen-models are often selected for shape prior modeling, but are limited in capturing only the second order moment statistics. On the other hand, kernel densities can in concept reproduce arbitrary statistics, but are problematic(More)
