ActiveVessel is a new multimedia workstation which enables the visualization, acquisition and handling of both image modalities, on-and offline. It enables DICOM v3.0 decompression and browsing, video acquisition, reproduction and storage for IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS) and angiograms with their corresponding ECG, automatic catheter segmentation in(More)
To evaluate the situation and perspectives of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients, we investigated changes in the incidence, causes, and long-term outcome of this disease in 72 acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients who were diagnosed with PML from 1996 to 2011. Patients were(More)
We gratefully acknowledge financial support from DGES project PB98-1058-C03-03 and from the Instituto de la Mujer, Project VS/2001/0497. Abstract This paper reexamines gender wage differences, taking into account not only worker characteristics but also job characteristics. Consideration of a wide set of " job quality " indicators can explain a fraction of(More)
We estimate four models of female labour supply using a Spanish sample of married women from 1994, taking into account the complete form of the individual's budget set. The models differ in the hypotheses relating to the presence of optimisation errors and/or the way non-workers contribute to the likelihood function. According to the results, the effects of(More)
Resumen En este artículo proponemos un procedimiento objetivo para la evaluación, basada en competencias, de los trabajos fin de grado (TFG) y de máster (TFM) en el contexto de las ingenierías. Dicho procedimiento se ha dividido en seis etapas: (1) definición de las competencias asociadas al TFG o al TFM y de indicadores objetivos; (2) definición de los(More)
We present a tool that automatically generates the code involved in the solution of problems that are usually posed in a first-year "Introduction to Programming" course; concretely those related to the exploration of recursive sequences. Thus the tool is especially suitable to support teaching and can be also used as a training technique for software(More)
The objective of this work is to segment the human left ventricle myocardium (LVM) in contrast echocardiography imaging and thus track it along a cardiac cycle in order to extract quantitative data about heart function. Ultrasound images are hard to work with due to their speckle appearance. To overcome this we report the combination of active contour(More)
The scope of this work is to serve as support in an introductory programming course. The proposal addresses the problem of how to construct programs from specifications formally and incrementally. As key idea, we use a taxonomy of problem specification schemas, each representing a family of related problems. Actually, the proposal is mainly focused on(More)
