We propose Binary/Appearance Tracker which consists of background subtraction, silhouette similarity and particle filter to infer pedestrians' locations under different occlusion situations with a single camera. During the period of occlusions, binary and color silhouettes are adaptively used to effectively measure the similarity between the observation and(More)
In this paper, we propose two-layer coding algorithm to improve the performance of the H.264-based lossless (H.264-LS) image coding. From universal access point of view, the proposed method is based on the H.264 lossy image coding with other CABAC layer to compensate the lossy portion. Besides, the H.264-LS with DPCM (H264-LS_DPCM) and H.264-LS achieve(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of Gingyo-san (GGS), a traditional Chinese medical formula, on peripheral lymphocyte proliferation and serum antibody titers in chickens vaccinated against the infectious bursal disease (IBD) virus. Treatment groups were fed one of three doses of GGS in their diet (0.5%, 1.0% and 2.0%, w/w),(More)
The animals used in liver fibrosis studies must usually be sacrificed. Ultrasound has been demonstrated to have the ability to diagnose hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis in experimental small-animal models. However, few studies have used high-frequency ultrasound (HFU, 40 MHz) to monitor changes in the rat liver and other hollow organs longitudinally. In this(More)
The interactive devices, which help humans to easily access the computer and video game player, become an important technology to provide interactive multimedia services and entertainments in the 21st century. Considering the cost and the effectiveness of the human machine interface (HMI) devices, in this paper, we design a low cost image-based(More)
Recent studies have implicated the prorenin receptor (PRR) is associated with pancreatic tumorigenesis. We therefore investigated the role of PRR in pancreatic tumorigenesis and assessed whether PRR can serve as a target for imaging diagnosis at early stages of PDAC. Here we show that aberrant expression of PRR in premalignant PanIN lesions, and human PDAC(More)
