BACKGROUND There is recent evidence suggesting that rosiglitazone increases death from cardiovascular causes. We investigated the direct effect of this drug on atheroma using 3D carotid cardiovascular magnetic resonance. RESULTS A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study was performed to evaluate the effect of rosiglitazone treatment on carotid… (More)
A novel reduced complexity Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural network based equaliser, referred to as the In-phase/Quadrature-phase RBF Equaliser (I/Q-RBF-EQ), is proposed. The I/Q-RBF-EQ is employed in the context of turbo equalisation (TEQ) assisted by iterative channel estimation. The performance of the I/Q-RBF-TEQ is characterized in a noise limited… (More)
