Myocardial infarction is diagnosed when blood levels of biomarkers are increased in the clinical setting of acute myocardial ischemia. Among the biomarkers, troponin I is the preferred biomarker indicative of myocardial necrosis. It is tissue specific for the heart. Myocardial infarction is rarely reported following seizure. We report a case of elevated(More)
Motion tracking and object segmentation are the most fundamental and critical problems in vision tasks such as motion analysis. An active contour model, snake, was developed as a useful segmenting and tracking tool for rigid or non-rigid objects. In this paper, the development of new snake model called " adaptive color snake model (ACSM) " for segmentation(More)
Fully integrated Doherty amplifiers have been developed for 5 GHz wireless-LAN (WLAN) applications. Through a new Doherty power amplifier circuit topology, the bulky Doherty in/output matching block including quarter-wave (lambda/4) impedance transformer can be fully integrated using capacitors, short micro-strip lines and bonding wires. To improve(More)
BACKGROUND Administration of convalescent plasma, serum, or hyperimmune immunoglobulin may be of clinical benefit for treatment of severe acute respiratory infections (SARIs) of viral etiology. We conducted a systematic review and exploratory meta-analysis to assess the overall evidence. METHODS Healthcare databases and sources of grey literature were(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The extent of coronary artery calcification (CAC) is closely related to total atherosclerotic plaque burden. However, the pathogenesis of CAC is still unclear. Conditions such as diabetes mellitus, renal failure, smoking, and chronic inflammation have been suggested to link vascular calcification and bone loss. In the present(More)
