In this study we have looked into the problem of vehicle detection in high-resolution satellite images. Based on the input from the local road authorities, we have focused not only on highways, but also on inner city roads, where more clutter is expected. The study site is the city of Oslo, Norway. To do vehicle detection in these areas, we propose an(More)
Intraoperative MRI has recently entered the operating room as a new imaging modality. Customized visualization systems might further facilitate the use of this imaging technology. A visualization system for use in the interventional MRI has been developed, providing a virtual environment for surgical navigation using real-time images and for controlling the(More)
Perioperative mortality in coronary artery bypass grafting is usually caused by reduced left ventricular function due to regional myocardial ischemia or infarction. Post-operative graft occlusion is a well-known problem in coronary surgery. A sensitive tool to detect graft occlusion and monitor myocardial function may give the opportunity to revise(More)
The goal of this study was to estimate the three-dimensional (3D) temperature distribution in liver cryolesions and assess the margin of the transition zone between the tumoricidal core of the lesion and the surrounding unfrozen tissue, using criteria proposed in the literature. Local recurrences after liver tumor cryoablation are frequent. Temperatures(More)
7 ABSTRACT Nasal delivery is considered for an increasing number of existing and new drugs and vaccines, but current nasal delivery devices have major disadvantages. The Norwegian company OptiNose AS is developing a novel concept that challenges traditional delivery systems. The patended bi-directional delivery system improves drug and vaccine distribution(More)
Cryoablation is a method used for in situ destruction of liver tumors not eligible for surgical resection. Local recurrences following such treatment have been reported at rates of 5-44%. Insufficient procedural monitoring of the ablation is one plausible explanation for these recurrences. The cryoablative procedure is usually monitored by ultrasonography,(More)
— Ground cover classification based on a single satellite image can be challenging. The work reported here concerns the use of multitemporal satellite image data in order to alleviate this problem. We consider the problem of vegetation mapping and model the phenological evolution of the vegetation using a Hidden Markov Model (HMM). The different vegetation(More)
Thermotherapeutic tools are increasingly used for tissue ablation, although the intra-operative monitoring is not adequate for such procedures. This is a main challenge for more extensive use of any ablative technique. The present work focuses on treatment of hepatic tumours by cryo therapy. For any thermotherapeutic tool there are specific thermal(More)
