Approximately 100,000 individuals in the United States currently await kidney transplantation, and 400,000 individuals live with end-stage kidney disease requiring hemodialysis. The creation of a transplantable graft to permanently replace kidney function would address donor organ shortage and the morbidity associated with immunosuppression. Such a(More)
In this paper, we show the blood-cell image classification system to be able to analyze and distinguish blood cells in the peripheral blood image. To distinguish their abnormalities, we segment red and white-blood cell in an image acquired from microscope with CCD camera and then, apply the various feature extraction algorithms to classify them. In addition(More)
Associative learning is key to how bees recognize and return to rewarding floral resources. It thus plays a major role in pollinator floral constancy and plant gene flow. Honeybees are the primary model for pollinator associative learning, but bumblebees play an important ecological role in a wider range of habitats, and their associative learning abilities(More)
We report in this communication the two-photon absorption (TPA)-induced room-temperature lasing performance of ZnO nanowires. Under femtosecond pulse-excitation at λ = 700 nm in the infrared regime, a remarkably low threshold of 160µJ/cm 2 was observed for the TPA-induced lasing action, which is of the same order of magnitude as that measured for the linear(More)
We describe a technique for the management of large benign ovarian cysts by single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) through the umbilicus. The paucity of intra-abdominal working space in large ovarian cysts poses a technical challenge. Moreover, difficult convergence of operating instruments and competition for operating space outside the abdomen during(More)
