Mechanisms of resistance for HNSCC to cisplatin (CDDP), the foundational chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of this disease, remain poorly understood. We previously demonstrated that cisplatin resistance (CR) can be overcome by targeting Trk receptor. In the current study, we explored the potential mechanistic role of the BDNF-TrkB signaling system in(More)
Electronic cleansing (EC) is a method that segments fecal material tagged by an X-ray-opaque oral contrast agent in computed tomographic colonography (CTC) images, and effectively removes the material for digitally cleansing the colon. In this study, we developed a novel EC method, called mosaic decomposition (MD), for reduction of the artifacts due to(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of MR image resolution on trabecular bone parameters and to determine the acceptable resolution that can be accurately analyzed to assess structural parameters. Ten distal femoral condyle specimens of 1 × 1 × 1 cm(3) were scanned with a 4.7-T Bruker BioSpec MRI scanner using a three-dimensional fast(More)
Dual-energy CT provides a promising solution to identify tagged fecal materials in electronic cleansing (EC) for fecal-tagging CT colonography (CTC). In this study, we developed a new EC method based on virtual colon tagging (VCT) for minimizing EC artifacts by use of the material decomposition ability in dual-energy CTC images. In our approach, a localized(More)
It is commonly believed that the size of a pneumothorax is an important determinant of treatment decision, in particular regarding whether chest tube drainage (CTD) is required. However, the volumetric quantification of pneumothoraces has not routinely been performed in clinics. In this paper, we introduced an automated computer-aided volumetry (CAV) scheme(More)
This study presents a straightforward approach to computer-aided polyp detection and explores its advantages and future potential. A straightforward computer-aided polyp detection (CAD) scheme was developed that consisted of colon wall segmentation, a polyp-specific volumetric filter, and the counting and thresholding of cluster volume sizes. 65 patients(More)
