The three-dimensional (3D) object data obtained from a CT scanner usually have unequal sampling frequencies in the x-, y- and z-directions. Generally, the 3D data are first interpolated between slices to obtain isotropic resolution, reconstructed, then operated on using object extraction and display algorithms. The traditional grey-level interpolation(More)
Cloud Computing and IoT have been around for quite some time. The use of Cloud Computing to compute or to store IoT data is useful as Cloud can offer such an effective and cheap solution to access resources from the edge. However, extensively use such resources may face degradation since the data and applications are processed in the cloud where every bit(More)

Hip dislocation has long been one of the major complications after total hip arthroplasty (THA). From 1980 to 1994, we performed 2728 THAs (including primary and revision cases). There were 97 hips (3. 6%) with the complication of dislocation, 62 of which were followed up for at least 2 years (mean 5.3 years; range 2-12 years). Single dislocations occurred(More)
PURPOSE This study investigated hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) and platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) to determine their combined effects on fibroblasts from rabbit medial collateral ligament (MCL). METHOD Cells were divided into four groups: (I) Control, (II) HBO2 treatment, (III) PDGF-BB treatment and (IV) HBO2 combined with PDGF-BB treatment. All(More)
BACKGROUND Nontraumatic avascular necrosis of the femoral head is a common disorder causing disability of the hip joint. The methods for optimally treating this disease in active young patients are still controversial. In this study we investigated the surgical outcome of vascularized pedicle iliac bone grafting for treating nontraumatic avascular necrosis(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review the cases of pathologic long bone fractures caused by multiple myeloma treated in our hospital, to analyze the surgical method, complications, radiation therapy, survival time, and influence on quality of life. METHODS In a retrospective study, 22 patients with the pathological long bone(More)
Distributed object storage system has advantages in scalability and accessibility over standard block and file storage. However, the object approach lacks maturity when it comes to real-time systems such as transactional databases that are constantly being written. Specifically, the object approach cannot rival block-based systems for the dynamic read and(More)
