To evaluate the anthelmintic effect of Musa spp. leaves, 12 animals were artificially infected with Haemonchus contortus, and another 12 animals were infected with Trichostrongylus colubriformis. Then, both treatment groups were offered 400 g of dried ground banana plant leaves, and the control animals were offered only 1000 g of coast cross hay. During the(More)
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world. Currently, there are no effective methods to prevent this disease. However, early diagnosis increases chances of remission. Breast thermography is an option to be considered in screening strategies. This paper proposes a new dynamic breast thermography analysis technique in order to identify(More)
Breast cancer is one from various diseases that has got great attention in the last decades. This due to the number of women who died because of this disease. Segmentation is always an important step in developing a CAD system. This paper proposed an automatic segmentation method for the Region of Interest (ROI) from breast thermograms. This method is based(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide. Diagnosis and treatment in early stages increase cure chances. The temperature of cancerous tissue is generally higher than that of healthy surrounding tissues, making thermography an option to be considered in screening strategies of this cancer type. This paper proposes a hybrid methodology(More)
Problems with synthesis and optimization of reactor systems are considerably more complex than other process stages. The complexity is related to the complex and non-linear behavior of the reactor systems. In this work a computational systematic procedure was developed in order to optimize ideal reactor systems. The technique of non-linear optimization of(More)
