Recently, many cases of children presenting reversible splenial lesions during febrile illness (RESLEF) have been reported; however, their overall clinico-radiological features are unclear. To describe the clinico-radiological features, we retrospectively reviewed the etiology (pathogen), clinical course, laboratory data, magnetic resonance imaging and(More)
Left ventricular (LV) function influences outcomes in right ventricular (RV) failure. Carvedilol reduces mortality in LV failure and improves RV function in experimental pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). However, its impact on ventricular-ventricular interactions and LV function in RV afterload is unknown. We investigated effects of carvedilol on(More)
— We conducted high-frame-rate (HFR) video mo-saicing for real-time synthesis of a panoramic image by implementing an improved feature-based video mosaicing algorithm on a field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based high-speed vision platform. In the implementation of the mosaicing algorithm , feature point extraction was accelerated by implementing a(More)
Lateral root (LR) formation in vascular plants is regulated by auxin. The mechanisms of LR formation are not fully understood. Here, we have identified a novel recessive mutation in Arabidopsis thaliana, named fewer roots (fwr), that drastically reduces the number of LRs. Expression analyses of DR5::GUS, an auxin response reporter, and pLBD16::GUS, an LR(More)
