The rapid progress in VLSI technology has reduced the cost of hardware, allowing multiple copies of low-cost processors to provide a large amount of computational capability for a small cost. In addition to achieving high performance, high reliability is also important to ensure that the results of long computations are valid. This paper proposes a novel(More)
There are no data on the incidence of new-onset diabetes mellitus (NODM ) in nondiabetic dyslipidaemia patients treated with fibrates. The aim of our study was to clarify these issues, to investigate the relationship between NODM and fibrate and whether the fibrates lead to increased risk for developing NODM. A retrospective cohort study was conducted by(More)
Comprehensive VLSI fault models are proposed for three broad classes of interconnection networks between multiple processors and multiple memory modules. System-level algorithms are given for concurrent detection of errors produced by these faults during the normal use of the networks. The proposed algorithms are shown to be applicable to the three classes(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to explore the relationship between the time interval from diagnosis to treatment and survival of oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A population-based study was conducted between 2004 and 2010. Claims data of oral squamous cell carcinoma patients were retrieved from the Taiwan Cancer Registry Database.(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the treatment effects of BeauTop in alopecia by observing its effectiveness in improving androgenetic alopecia. Hair growth was observed using a dermatoscope and clinical photos, and was scored by three dermatologists. Dermatologists evaluated and selected suitable participants for this study using the Norwood(More)
BACKGROUND Physical disability has been associated with the risk of depression. We examined the incidence, risk, and associated factors of depression in Taiwanese adults with physical/sensory disabilities. METHODS Two national databases were used to retrospectively analyze 749,491 ≥20-year-old Taiwanese with physical/sensory disabilities in 2002-2008. The(More)
BACKGROUND Influenza immunization among elderly people with disabilities is a critical public health concern; however, few studies have examined the factors associated with vaccination rates in non-Western societies. METHODS By linking the National Disability Registration System and health service claims dataset from the National Health Insurance program,(More)
BACKGROUND Limited information is available concerning investigating the separate effect of teenage childbirth on medical issues in the antenatal and perinatal periods. Therefore, this study aimed to assess medical problems in antenatal and perinatal periods among early youth, adolescent and young adult mothers in Taiwan. METHODS This retrospective(More)
The traditional set covering models did not consider the equity of users that carried by each set. We developed a new method to solve that for the Integrated Delivering System (IDS) in medical service in Taichung city. This method requires grouping the clinics in equal market share in a way that satisfy the equity conditions given. It uses Voronoi blocks as(More)
