—This article presents advanced algorithms for segmenting lung nodules, liver metastases, and enlarged lymph nodes in CT scans. Segmentation and volumetry are essential tasks of a software assistant for oncological therapy monitoring. Our methods are based on a hybrid algorithm originally developed for lung nodules that combines a threshold-based approach(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of iodine concentration on diagnostic efficacy in multi-detector-row computed tomography (MDCT) angiography of the abdominal aorta and abdominal arteries. METHODS IRB approval and informed consent were obtained. In this double-blind trial, patients were randomised to undergo MDCT angiography of(More)
Murine bronchioalveolar stem cells play a key role in pulmonary epithelial maintenance and repair but their molecular profile is poorly described so far. In this study, we used antibodies directed against Sca-1 and CD34, two markers originally ascribed to pulmonary cells harboring regenerative potential, to isolate single putative stem cells from murine(More)
Omnipause neurons (OPNs) represent a crucial component for the generation of saccadic eye movements. They inhibit saccadic premotor neurons in the paramedian pontine reticular formation (PPRF) as well as in the rostral interstitial nucleus of the medial longitudinal fascicle (RIMLF) during the intersaccadic interval. In turn, inhibition of OPNs is a(More)
