—The computational power and memory bandwidth of graphics processing units (GPUs) have turned them into attractive platforms for general-purpose applications. In this paper, we exploit this power in the context of biomedical image processing by establishing a cooperative environment between the CPU and the GPU. We deal with phenotype and color analysis on a(More)
BACKGROUND Since 1953, through the cooperation of state and local health departments, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has collected information on incident cases of tuberculosis (TB) disease in the United States. In 2009, TB case rates declined -11.4%, compared to an average annual -3.8% decline since 2000. The unexpectedly large(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive and neurodegenerative disorder and one of the current therapies involves strengthening the cholinergic tone in central synapses. Neuroprotective properties for nicotine have been described in AD, through its actions on nicotinic receptors and the further activation of the PI3K/Akt/Bcl-2 survival pathway. We have(More)
