RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Although the spiculation levels of breast mass boundaries are a primary sign of malignancy for masses detected on mammography, developing an automated computerized method to detect spiculation levels and quantitatively evaluating the performance of such a method is a difficult task. The objectives of this study were to (1) develop(More)
The brain blood vasculature consists of a highly ramified vessel network that is tailored to meet its physiological functions. How the brain vasculature is formed has long been fascinating biologists. Here we report that the developing vasculature in the zebrafish midbrain undergoes not only angiogenesis but also extensive vessel pruning, which is driven by(More)
In this paper an automatic and effective method was proposed for mass segmentation in mammography. Based on the facts that mass edges are continuous and closed curves consisted of points which have larger gradient transformation, a plane fitting method and a dynamic programming technique were applied. The regions of interest (ROIs) used in this study were(More)
The title compound, C(17)H(17)N(4) (+)·C(9)H(5)O(6) (-)·C(9)H(6)O(6)·H(2)O, contains a protonated 2,2'-(1,3-propanedi-yl)bis-(1H-benzimidazole) cation, a deprotonated benzene-1,3,5-tricarb-oxy-lic acid anion, a neutral benzene-1,3,5-tricarb-oxy-lic acid mol-ecule and a water mol-ecule, which are linked together through N-H⋯O, O-H⋯O and weak C-H⋯O hydrogen(More)
