Disease-specific understanding of echocardiographic sequences requires accurate characterization of spatio-temporal motion patterns. In this paper we present a method of automatic extraction and matching of spatio-temporal patterns from cardiac echo videos. Specifically, we extract cardiac regions (chambers and walls) using a variation of multiscale(More)
The renal extraction of beta 2-microglobulin (beta 2M) was investigated under steady-state conditions achieved by constant infusion of human beta 2M. Fifteen animal experiments were conducted. Beta 2 microglobulin was infused at rates ranging from 51 o 269 micrograms/min. The renal arterial and venous blood levels remained constant throughout the study(More)
