Thirty-four joints (19 knees, 15 wrists) of 31 patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and related disorders were examined prior to and following intravenous administration of Gadolinium-DTPA (0.1 mmol/kg body weight). T1-weighted spin-echo sequences and the gradient-echo technique FLASH were applied. FLASH scanning was used for the registration of the(More)
DLR's Remote Sensing Technology Institute has more than 20 years of history in developing spaceborne stereo scanners (MEOSS, MOMS) and the corresponding stereo evaluation software systems. It takes part in the ESA/JAXA-AO Program to evaluate the performance and potential of the three-line stereo scanner PRISM (Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for(More)
One of the first essential steps in the analysis of satellite imagery is the orthorectification of the images. Normally, satellite data are delivered geocoded with varying accuracy. Orthorectification without ground control points (GCPs) using only the ephemeris and attitude data provided by the satellite operator provides an absolute accuracy of about 20 m(More)
—The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is responsible for the development of prototype processors for PRISM and AVNIR-2 data under a contract of the European Space Agency. The PRISM processor comprises the radiometric correction, an optional deconvolution to improve image quality, the generation of a digital elevation model, and orthorectification. The AVNIR-2(More)
Hereditary haemorrhagic teleangiectasia (HHT) is most notably characterized by vulnerable vascular formations of the nasal superficial mucosa. Epistaxis is one of the most common symptoms of the afflicted patients, with an incidence of more than 90 %. A variable series of treatments have been described, ranging from nasal ointments to the complete surgical(More)
A large number of PTCA balloon catheters from different manufacturers were examined following their use. Several of these balloons had been previously used for PTCA for the mere purpose of guide wire support. Each balloon was evaluated starting at 8 atm. The pressure was increased in steps of 1 atm until rupture. This stepwise increase of pressure was(More)
DLR's Remote Sensing Technology Institute has a long lasting experience in developing spaceborne stereo scanners (MEOSS, MOMS) and the corresponding photogrammetric software systems for stereo evaluation and orthorectification. It takes part in the ESA/JAXA-AO Program to evaluate the performance and potential of the three-line stereo scanner PRISM and the(More)
Myocardial contrast echography (MCE) has been a major research objective in cardiovascular ultrasound for almost two decades. The design of a contrast agent fulfilling the needs of MCE requires taking into consideration a number of points: a basic decision has to be made whether a deposit agent or a free-flowing agent would be more appropriate and whether(More)
