This paper is devoted to the construction of a complete database which is intended to improve the implementation and the evaluation of automated facial reconstruction. This growing database is currently composed of 85 head CT-scans of healthy European subjects aged 20-65 years old. It also includes the triangulated surfaces of the face and the skull of each(More)
In this paper, we formulate the Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) problem on matrix manifolds. This framework provides a natural way for dealing with matrix constraints and tools for building efficient algorithms even in an adaptive setting. Finally , an adaptive CCA algorithm is proposed and applied to a change detection problem in EEG signals.
The purpose of this study was to examine some aspects of umbilical cord blood collection for autologous transfusion in premature infants. All 120 microbacterial cultures (aerobic and anaerobic) of cord blood samples as well as 30 cultures of mycoplasma were treated. Cord prothrombin fragment (F 1 + 2) concentrations were quantified at one and 10 minutes(More)
OBJECTIVE To document a subjective response to iron therapy in female adolescents. DESIGN Double-blind, placebo-controlled prospective study. SETTING High school classes in an urban community in Israel. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-nine girls, aged 16 and 17 years, who ingested syrup containing iron (daily for 2 months) and 30 girls who received a placebo. (More)
The aim of craniofacial reconstruction is to estimate the shape of a face from the shape of the skull. Few works in machine-assisted facial reconstruction have been conducted so far, probably due to technical (poor machine performance and data availability) and theoretical (complexity) reasons. Therefore, the main works in the literature consist in manual(More)
This paper presents the main approaches used to synthesize talking faces, and provides greater detail on a handful of these approaches. No system is described exhaustively, however, and, for purposes of conciseness, not all existing systems are reviewed. An attempt is made to distinguish between facial synthesis itself (i.e the manner in which facial(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and efficiency of operative hysteroscopy in physiologic saline solution. DESIGN Prospective observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING Tertiary university hospital. PATIENTS One hundred sixteen women (56% menopausal) with intrauterine pathology with or without symptoms, in whom(More)
In the context of computer assist surgical techniques , a new elastic registration method of 3D meshes is presented. In our applications, one mesh is a high density mesh (30000 vertexes), the second is a low density one (1000 ver-texes). Registration is based upon the minimisation of a symmetric distance between both meshes, defined on the vertexes, in a(More)
In this paper, we present a computer-assisted method for facial reconstruction. This method provides an estimation of the facial shape associated with unidentified skeletal remains. Current computer-assisted methods using a statistical framework rely on a common set of extracted points located on the bone and soft-tissue surfaces. Most of the facial(More)
Eleven women (12 pregnancies) were included in the study. A double-pigtail ureteric stent was passed under cytoscopic vision in 8 patients. The mean gestational age on insertion of the stents was 29 weeks (range, 25-35 weeks). Delivery took place at a mean of 39 weeks (range, 35-41 weeks). Stents remained in situ for a mean of 9 weeks (range, 6-14 weeks)(More)
