Despite the importance of organic soils, including peatlands, in the global carbon cycle, detailed information on regional and global emissions is scarce. This is due to the difficulty to map, measure, and assess the complex dynamics of land, soil, and water interactions needed to assess the human-driven degradation of organic soils. We produced a new(More)
Cerebral vein analysis provides a fundamental tool to study brain diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders or traumatic brain injuries. In order to assess the vascular anatomy, manual segmentation approaches can be used but are observer-dependent and time-consuming. In the present work, a fully automated cerebral vein segmentation method is proposed,(More)
Since 2001 the Istituto Superiore di Sanità established a quality assurance programme for molecular genetic testing that covers four pathologies: Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Beta Thalassemia (BT), Fragile X Syndrome (FX), and Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC). Since 2009 this activity is an institutional activity and participation is open to both public(More)
The phenomenon of geometric mispositioning (defined as having a geometric proper plus a parallax component) was studied and characterized on Neuro- and whole body PET systems employing 2-D modular detectors (CTI/Siemens ECAT-831/08 and 931/08) as well as an older system (CTI ECAT-911). Measurements taken with precisely spaced line sources showed image(More)
