OBJECTIVES In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qi maintains the physiologic function and indicates physiologic energy. Glucose provides energy to humans, thereby playing a role analogous to "nutritive Qi." This study aims to identify the correlations among blood glucose, Qi Vacuity (QV), and the electrical conductances of acupoints. METHODS Twenty (20)(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a new assistive procedure for injecting cement in percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV). Percutaneous vertebroplasty is frequently used for treating patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. However, the leakage of bone cement during PV may lead to serious complications, such as(More)
At the NTCIR5 CLQA task, we participated in the Chinese-Chinese (CC) and English-Chinese (EC) QA subtasks. Due to some programming errors in our EC QA system, we will focus on the evaluation of our CC QA system in this paper. We propose a new method to improve answer ranking using the cohesion between answer and keywords. Our experimental results show the(More)
Recently, we have proposed several effective Web-based term translation extraction methods exploring Web resources to deal with translation of Web query terms. However, many unknown proper names in Web queries are still difficult to be translated by using our previous Web-based term translation extraction methods. Therefore, in this paper we propose a new(More)
In machine translation, cross-language information retrieval, and cross-language question answering, the problems of unknown term translation are difficult to be solved. Although we have proposed several effective Web-based term translation extraction methods exploring Web resources to deal with translation of frequent Web query terms. However, many(More)
Unknown term translation is important to CLIR and MT systems, but it is still an unsolved problem. Recently, a few researchers have proposed several effective search-result-based term translation extraction methods which explore search results to discover translations of frequent unknown terms from Web search results. However, many infrequent unknown terms,(More)
In this paper, we adopt two methods targeting NTCIR-5 Chinese-English CLIR task. First, to alleviate problems of unknown query terms, we combine dictionary-based and search-result-based methods to handle query translation for CLIR. Second, to reduce document retrieval time, we use a Chinese part-of-speech (POS) tagger to extract only nouns, verbs, and(More)
A pulse oximeter is a common medical instrument used for noninvasively monitoring arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2). Currently, the fingertip-type pulse oximeter is the prevalent type of pulse oximeter used. However, it is inconvenient for long-term monitoring, such as that under motion. In this study, a wearable and wireless finger base-type pulse oximeter(More)
In the noise environment of the modern society, everybody may be influenced by noise. Therefore, there have lots of workers must wearing the hearing protector to avoid the injury to its sense of hearing of various kinds of industrial noises in its environment. The conventional passive methods, such as ear muffs, are ineffective against low-frequency noise.(More)
Speech recognition in noise environment is always inefficient for hearing-impaired people who wear hearing aids. Many noise cancellations have been proposed and studied for such an issue. In this paper, we designed a prototype of hearing instrument coupler to imitate the equivalent volume of the human ear, and built a feedforward active noise cancellation(More)
