This paper presents an efficient and automatic method for detecting filament disappearances. This method was applied to the Big Bear Solar Observatory's (BBSO) full-disk Hα images. The initial step is to detect the filaments in the solar image, then determine if they are growing, stable or disappearing. If a disappearing filament is found, the solar(More)
This paper presents one efficient automatic detection method for filament disappearance. The method was applied to the Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) fulldisk Hα images. The initial step is to detect the filament pixels by the threshold method. Then, using a regiongrowing method, we merge the adjacent detected pixels to obtain all filament areas. Based(More)
In this Letter, a probability-based non-local means filter is proposed for speckle reduction in optical coherence tomography (OCT). Originally developed for additive white Gaussian noise, the non-local means filter is not suitable for multiplicative speckle noise suppression. This Letter presents a two-stage non-local means algorithm using the uncorrupted(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of triptolide on ATP‑binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) expression in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)‑induced acute lung injury (ALI) in rats. Thirty male Sprague Dawley rats weighing 200‑250 g were randomly divided into six groups: Normal (N, n=5), Control (C, n=5), LPS (L, n=5), Triptolide 25 µg (TP1,(More)
Tencent, one of the biggest Internet companies in China, contains billions of users and over 600-PB data, and leverages thousands of SSDs in the storage system to improve system performance and obtain energy savings. Existing commercial SSDs however fail to meet the needs of the ultra largescale applications due to not matching the service patterns. In(More)
