where ka*(1, LO) represent complex frequency dependent modal coupling coefficients for the symmetric mode subset. The analytical conclusions above are illustrated throughout the paper with several numerical examples, where comparison is established between zeroth-order results, first-order results, and exact results, showing the adequacy of our proposed(More)
The partial discharge source localization by ultrasonic measurements in power transformers is studied by the Particle Swarm optimization (PSO), and the signal parameter estimated model of ultrasonic localization has been established on the basis of the propagation properties of the ultrasonic wave. The experiment result shows that the PSO algorithm(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) has been successfully integrated with the magnetic navigation system (MNS) to facilitate a roadmap-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of this study was to compare this new approach of PCI versus conventional PCI regarding the difference of contrast usage, x-ray exposure,(More)
To prospectively evaluate diagnostic accuracy of dual source computed tomography (DSCT) for evaluation of aortic stenosis (AS) and aortic regurgitation (AR) with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) as reference. We evaluated a total of 79 patients who underwent both DSCT and TTE, 40 with aortic valve disease as assessed by TTE, and 39 matched controls.(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to develop a 3-dimensional (3D) fusion tool kit to integrate left ventricular (LV) venous anatomy on fluoroscopy venograms with LV epicardial surface on single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) for guiding cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) LV lead placement. BACKGROUND(More)
We demonstrate a system that combines steerable projection and computer vision technologies to create "touch-screen" style interactive displays on any flat surface in a space. A high-end version of the system -- the Everywhere Display (ED) -- combines an LCD projector with motorized focus and zoom, a computer controlled pan-tilt mirror, and a pan-tilt zoom(More)
Kidney segmentation is an important step for computer-aided diagnosis or treatment in urology. In this paper, we present an automatic method based on multi-atlas image registration for kidney segmentation. The method mainly relies on a two-step framework to obtain coarse-to-fine segmentation results. In the first step, down-sampled patient image is(More)
Handwritten text frames appear frequently in educational videos and can be used as an important cue for semantic analysis of educational videos. We detect text frames using a motion pattern analyzing algorithm. Then, we extract binary handwritten word images from the text frames in various visual formats: handwritten slides, electronic slides, handwriting(More)
Videotext can be an efficient semantic index and summary for instructional videos. However, videotext usually appears in different visual formats: handwritten slides, electronic slides, book pages, web pages, handwriting on chalkboard, etc. We propose a unified approach to handle all these kinds of videotext in three steps. First, we detect still video(More)
Aureins are a family of peptides (13-25 residues), some of which possess potent antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties, which have been classified into 5 subgroups based upon primary structural similarities. They were originally isolated from the defensive skin secretions of the closely related Australian bell frogs, Litoria aurea and Litoria raniformis,(More)
