The simultaneous occurrence of renal cell carcinoma(RCC) and transitional cell carcinoma(TCC) in the same kidney is unusual. We report a 53-year-old man with ipsilateral synchronous renal adenocarcinoma and renal pelvic transitional cell carcinoma with severe hypercalcemia and a huge staghorn calculus in the opposite kidney. The patient was admitted to the(More)
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is an uncommon yet potentially life threatening condition which is often under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed because of the variability of the clinical signs and symptoms. The imaging findings are often subtle thus the need for a high index of suspicion. The superior sagittal and transverse sinuses are the most frequently(More)
This paper compares several alternative binarization algorithms for historical archive documents, by evaluating their effect on end-to-end word recognition performance in a complete archive document recognition system utilising a commercial OCR engine. The algorithms evaluated are: global thresholding; Niblack's and Sauvola's algorithms; adaptive versions(More)
—We propose new tools for multiview video coding (MVC) that aim to compensate for mismatches between video frames corresponding to different views. Such mismatches could be caused by different shooting positions of the cameras and/or heterogeneous camera settings. In particular, we consider illumination and focus mismatches across views, i.e., such that(More)
Sarcomatoid carcinoma is a rare biphasic tumor characterized by a combination of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal cells. We report a rare case of sarcomatoid carcinoma of the colon. A 41-yr-old woman was hospitalized with a history of melena. Total colectomy was performed under the impression of colonic carcinoma. Histologically, the tumor was composed(More)
High computational and throughput requirements in modern ultrasound machines have restricted their internal design to algorithm-specific hardware with limited programmability. We have architected a programmable ultrasound processing system, Programmable Ultrasound Image Processor (PUIP), to facilitate engineering and clinical ultrasound innovations.(More)
Proposed is a system that recognizes logic symbols and their inter{connections on logic diagrams. Input diagram, digitized by scanner, is converted into a set of line segments through a sequence of picture processing operations. Then symbols and connections are extracted by identifying loops and rectilinear polylines utilizing model{base in which symbols(More)
