In this study, we propose a new representation method for multidimensional color images, called an n-qubit normal arbitrary superposition state (NASS), where n qubits represent the colors and coordinates of 2 n pixels (e.g., a three-dimensional color image of 1024 Â 1024 Â 1024 using only 30 qubits). Based on NASS, we present an (n þ 1)-qubit normal(More)
In this paper, we present a new segmentation evaluation method that can simulate radiologist's subjective assessment of 3D tumor segmentation in CT images. The method uses a new metric defined as a linear combination of a set of commonly used objective metrics. The weighing parameters of the linear combination are determined by maximizing the rank(More)
Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2) is an epigenetic regulator induced in many cancers. It is thought to drive tumorigenesis by repressing division, stemness, and/or developmental regulators. Cancers evade immune detection, and diverse immune regulators are perturbed in different tumors. It is unclear how such cell-specific effects are coordinated. Here,(More)
UNLABELLED Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) involving the cardiovascular system is extremely rare; to our knowledge, there are only 9 cases in the literature. Here, a case of a 60-year-old male with RDD involving the right atrium is presented. A comprehensive literature review was undertaken to summarize the clinical and pathologic features of this disorder. (More)
BACKGROUND Intravascular NK-cell lymphoma (IVNKL) is an extremely rare variant of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. To our knowledge, there are only a few cases reported in the English literature. Here, a case of a 29-year-old male with IVNKL involving the skin of the trunk and 4 extremities and liver is presented. A comprehensive literature review is undertaken to(More)
Forkhead box protein A1 (FoxA1) is a transcription factor that is involved in embryonic development and cell differentiation. In this study, we show that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) treatment upregulated expression of FoxA1 and UCP2 in the A549 cell line. Overexpression of FoxA1 by full-length complementary DNA reduced UCP2 expression, while silencing of FoxA1(More)
