This paper presents a novel shape representation, called elliptical shape coding, and uses it to develop an efficient shape retrieval algorithm. The elliptical shape coding transforms an original shape, which is a single, closed contour in our experiments, into a periodic signal. The alignment between two shapes is accomplished efficiently by performing(More)
A ten-component mixture of polystyrene latex particles in the 67-1220 nm size range was subjected to analysis by analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) and sedimentation field-flow fractionation (SdFFF) using programmed and constant fields. The AUC analysis of the mixture yielded diameter values in good agreement with data determined on the separate(More)
In this paper, a new neural-fuzzy approach is proposed for automated region segmentation in transrectal ultrasound images of the prostate. The goal of region segmentation is to identify suspicious regions in the prostate in order to provide decision support for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. The new automated region segmentation system uses expert(More)
Conventional operation of field-flow fractionation (FFF) systems involves carrying out the analysis at a constant flow of carrier; the flow is temporarily interrupted after injection of a sample in order to permit its equilibration under the applied field. Retention is calculated as the ratio of elution times for a non-retained species and the sample of(More)
