This analysis permits the following conclusions: The value of punctate cytology consists in the possibility to verify the clinical diagnosis of a cyst by aspiration of fluid, and to make a preoperative assessment of the necessity of an operation and its type and extent, if proof of a benign or malignant tumor was obtained by microscopic examination. The(More)
In a prospective controlled study the influence of long-term mitomycin C instillation therapy on tumor recurrence, progression and patient survival after transurethral resection of superficial bladder tumors was evaluated. This report is an update of a randomized controlled study that was stopped 1.5 years ago. The results show that long-term mitomycin C(More)
We followed 67 patients with superficial bladder cancer (TA, T1) for 12-48 months (mean, 26.8 months) after surgical removal of the tumors. Every 3-4 months, when the patients came for cystoscopic control, we evaluated serum and urinary carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), urinary cytology, serum rheumatoid factors, and urinary IgG, IgA, and IgM concentrations.(More)
We followed 67 patients with superficial bladder cancer (pTA, pT1) for 12-48 months (mean, 26.8 months) after surgical removal of their tumors. In addition to tumor grade and stage, we recorded morphologic characteristics of randomized mucosal biopsies and blood group antigens of the and 'normal' bladder mucosa by means of the specific red cell adherence(More)
Recent work has shown that object-based video coding can provide higher coding gain than common H.264/AVC for single-view and the MVC standard based on H.264 for multi-view (MVC). The use of background sprites outperformes the AVC/MVC especially in sequences containing rotating camera motion and moving foreground objects. The coding performance strongly(More)
We present a 3D modeling system for traffic surveillance applications. The application contains several cameras positioned around a traffic scene. The video signals are compressed and streamed to a central client. At the central client a scene reconstruction is carried out, using all 2D camera views utilizing 3D camera calibration information. To combine(More)
Work is currently underway to develop a new multi-view video coding (MVC) standard, based on the recent H.264/AVC standard. Recent work has shown, however, that object-based video coding can provide higher performance than H.264, especially at low bit rates and in sequences containing rotating camera motion and moving objects in the foreground. In this(More)
We determined the concentration and effusion/serum ratio of mucin-like carcinoma-associated antigen (MCA) in comparison to carcinoembryonic antigen, carbohydrate antigen 19-9, cancer antigen 125, and cancer antigen 15-3 in 80 sera and 99 effusions from 64 patients with histologically confirmed malignancies (4 patients out of this group showed various(More)
In recent years advanced video codecs have been developed, such as standardized in MPEG-4. The latest video codec standardized, the H.264/AVC, provides compression performance superior to previous standards, but is based on the same basic motion-compensatedDCT architecture. However, for certain kinds of videos, it has also been shown that it is possible to(More)
