We present an approach for controlling relaxation parameters in variable conductance diffusion. This approach incorporates a Bayesian classifier to perform a partial labeling of an image, followed by a diffusion step. Conductance values between pixels are controlled by statistical measurements made of the partial classification. Several iterations follow,(More)
The main goal of this paper is to estimate the preferences of the Italian society towards equity in order to verify whether preferences i) have changed across the years, and ii) can be related to specific socio-demographic characteristics.

PURPOSE Produce a collection of software tools (computer programs) that support three-dimensional (3D) radiation therapy planning. The tools are not a complete 3D planning system. Instead, they work with any 3D planning system that meets certain minimal specifications. The tools assist in deriving anatomic data from images, generating target volume(More)
