Document understanding, the interpretation of a document from its image form, is a technology area which benefits greatly from the integration of natural language processing with image processing. We have developed a prototype of an Intelligent Document Understanding System (IDUS) which employs several technologies: image processing, optical character(More)
Because of the complexity of documents and the variety of applications which must be supported, document understanding requires the integration of image understanding with text understanding. Our docum(,nt understanding technology is implemented in a system called IDUS (Intelligent Document Undcrstanding System), which creates the da ta for a text retrieval(More)
We have examined the value of bone marrow biopsy histopathology in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Cases involving a pattern of interstitial, nodular, or mixed interstitial plus nodular infiltration of lymphocytes were clinically similar and manifested a more benign course. These patterns correlated with the clinical Stages 0, I, and II. However, cases(More)
Forty-five patients with metastatic breast cancer without clinically evident disease were treated with thiotepa 750 mg/m2, mitoxantrone 40 mg/m2 and carboplatin 1000 mg/m2 followed by stem cell transplantation to determine the safety and efficacy of CD34+ selection of peripheral blood stem cells. Of these, 15 patients' (group I) stem cells were processed(More)
