OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation is abnormal in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. BACKGROUND Multiple investigations, both in experimental models and in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, demonstrate impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation. Decreased availability(More)
BACKGROUND Endothelium-dependent vasodilation is abnormal in experimental models of diabetes mellitus. We postulated that abnormalities of endothelial function are also present in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and may contribute to the pathogenesis of vascular disease in these individuals. METHODS AND RESULTS Vascular reactivity was(More)
Multi-Angled Parallelism (MAP) is a method to recognize lines in binary images. It is suitable to be implemented in parallel processing and image processing hardware. The binary image is transformed into directional planes, upon which, directional operators of erosion-dilation are iteratively applyed. From a set of basic operators, more complex ones are(More)
