OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether pretreatment quantitative and visual parameters seen on PET/CT using (18)F-FDG add prognostic information for clinical staging in patients with head and neck cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS We enrolled 108 patients with histologically proven oral, oropharyngeal, hypopharyngeal, and laryngeal(More)
Desired/undesired speech discrimination is as important as speech/non-speech discrimination to achieve useful applications such as speech interfaces and teleconferencing systems. Conventional methods of voice activity detection (VAD) utilize the directional information of sound sources to distinguish desired from undesired speech. However, these methods(More)
—Conventional near-field talker localization methods with microphone-array calculate spatial spectrum in each scanning position of discretized space and each frequency. Hence, elapsed time is increased and real-time processing is difficult. Real-time processing is important for achieving the natural interaction with the speech interfaces. To overcome this(More)
A new method has been developed for diffusible tracers, to quantify CBF at rest and after pharmacological stress from a single session of dynamic scans with dual bolus administration of a radiotracer. The calculation process consisted of three steps, including the procedures of incorporating background radioactivity contaminated from the previous scan.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Whether misery perfusion (MP) commonly accompanies brain borderzones (BZs) in patients with major cerebral artery occlusion remains unclear. We elucidated topographic patterns of chronic hemodynamic failure in such patients. METHODS Twenty-four patients with unilateral occlusion or severe stenosis (>75% in diameter) of the internal(More)
