We evaluated the usefulness of prognostic markers in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, and prednisolone (CHOP) +/- rituximab (R-CHOP) in Japan. We studied 730 patients with DLBCL; 451 received CHOP and 279 R-CHOP. We analyzed biopsy samples immunohistochemically for markers of(More)
In this paper, we propose a new one-dimensional (1D) integer discrete cosine transform (Int-DCT) for unified lossless/lossy image compression. The proposed 1D Int-DCT is newly designed to reduce rounding effects by minimizing number of rounding operations. The proposed Int-DCT can be operated not only lossless coding for a high quality decoded image but(More)
In this paper, we propose a bit-rate adaptive coding system based on lossless DCT (L-DCT). Our adaptive coding system consists of three different operation modes: lossless, near-lossless and lossy coding modes. Quantization is applied in transform domain (after the LDCT) and spatial domain (before the L-DCT) in lossy mode and near-lossless mode,(More)
This report proposes a new coding method, which realizes lossless, near-lossless and lossy coding with a unified single algorithm. The method is based on a lifting-structured lossless DCT, which maps an "integer" input vector to also an "integer" output vector. The proposed method can be used as not only a high performance "lossless" encoder but also a(More)
A robust image processing technique capable of detecting and localizing objects accurately plays an important role in many computer vision applications. In this paper, a feature based detector for birds is proposed. By combining Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) and Center-Symmetric Local Binary Pattern (CS-LBP) as the feature set, detection of crows(More)
This paper proposes a functionally layered video coding for robot vision network. Video signals from mobile robots are regularly transmitted to a remote robot. It uses the video to estimate locations of each of the mobile robots. As the need arises, a person browses the video to check the scenery. In such occasion, the functionally layered video coding(More)
This paper proposes a reversible two dimensional (2D) discrete wavelet transform (DWT) for lossless coding which is compatible with the irreversible 2D 9-7 DWT for lossy coding in the JPEG 2000. Since all the filters and scalings are factorized into a product of lifting steps, and signal values are rounded into integers, the proposed DWT is reversible and(More)
