On the basis of my interactions with various people in the marketing community, I believe that marketing science and practice are in transition, bringing change to the content and boundaries of the discipline. Thus, I invited some distinguished scholars to contribute(More)
Modern applications increasingly require the computation of DSP workloads comprised of a variety of numerically-intensive DSP tasks. These workloads are found in communication, multime-dia, embedded, and wireless applications, and often require very high levels of computation and high energy efficiency. The Asynchronous Array of Simple Processors (AsAP)(More)
— Reliability of systems used in space, avionic and biomedical applications is highly critical. Such systems consist of an analog front-end to collect data, an Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) to convert the collected data to digital form and a digital unit to process it. Though considerable amount of research has been performed to increase the reliability(More)
BACKGROUND Readmission within 30 days is increasingly evaluated as a measure of quality of care. There are few data on the rates of readmission after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). OBJECTIVE We sought to determine the predictors of 30-day readmission in patients with SAH. METHODS We prospectively identified 283 patients with SAH admitted between 2006(More)
This paper presents a method for classification of liver ultrasound images based on texture analysis. The proposed method uses a set of seven texture features having high discriminative power which can be used by radiologists to classify the liver. Feature extraction is carried out using the following texture Based upon the results of Linear Discriminative(More)
Wireless Body Area Network in recent years has received significant attention, due to their market potential to reduce the healthcare cost as well as load of medical professionals, resulting in higher efficiency. This paper addresses the available wireless body area network prototypes and the issues related to hardware implementations, software and wireless(More)
