BACKGROUND A technical advance in contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has significantly improved image quality. We investigated whether healed myocardial infarction can be visualised as hyperenhanced regions with this new technique, and whether assessment of the transmural extent of infarction yields new physiological data. METHODS 82 MRI(More)
—In this paper, a new approach for the statistical characterization of a measurand is presented. A description of how different bootstrap techniques can be applied in practice to estimate successfully a measurand probability density function (pdf) is given. When the direct observation of a quantity of interest is practically impossible such as in(More)
In this paper we propose to continue in the same research line initiated by Pronzato and Thierry (Pronzato et al, 2000a), (Pronzato et al, 2000b), (Pronzato et al, 2001), recent works inspired in the minimum-entropy estimation have been published by De la Rosa and Fleury (De la Rosa et al, 2002), (De la Rosa et al, 2003) in the instrumentation framework.

—The purpose of this paper is to present a new approach for measurand uncertainty characterization. The Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) is applied to measurand probability density function (pdf) estimation, which is considered as an inverse problem. The measurement characterization is driven by the pdf estimation in a nonlinear Gaussian framework with(More)
Previously identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genome wide association studies (GWAS) of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in participants of mostly European descent were tested for association with subclinical cardiovascular disease (sCVD), coronary artery calcium score (CAC) and carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) in the Multi-Ethnic Study(More)
In this paper, a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) method is developed by a combination of Personal Identification Number (PIN), One Time Password (OTP), and speaker biometric through the speech watermarks. For this reason, a multipurpose digital speech watermarking applied to embed semi-fragile and robust watermarks simultaneously in the speech signal,(More)
