PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to demonstrate and evaluate the effective application of a computerized workflow management system (WMS) into sonography workflow in order to reduce patient exam waiting time, number of waiting patients, sonographer stress level, and to improve patient satisfaction. METHODS A computerized WMS was built with seamless(More)
Multiview video coding (MVC) has attracted great attention from industries and research institutes. MVC is used to encode stereoscopic video streams for 3D playout systems such as 3D television, digital cinema, and IP network applications. MVC is an extended version of H.264/AVC that improves the performance of multiview videos. Yet, when compared with(More)
Primary actinomycosis in urachal remnant is documented rarely in the English literature. The disease is usually misdiagnosed as urachal carcinoma because of its infiltrating and enhancing natures. We illustrate a case of urachal actinomycosis with ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance images. The clinical, radiological, and pathological(More)
A 49-year-old male had history of recurrent laryn-geal papillomatosis spreading to the bronchus and lung parenchyma since childhood. He had been treated with repeated endoscopic CO 2 laser exci-sion (figure 1). He had no smoking history. He was admitted with a 3-day history of worsening fever, cough and dyspnoea. Chest radiography showed a right lower lung(More)
BACKGROUND To report the technique and clinical outcome of subintimal re-entry in chronic iliac artery occlusion by using a Colapinto transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) needle under rotational angiography (cone-beam computed tomography; CT) imaging guidance. METHODS Patients with chronic iliac artery occlusion with earlier failed(More)
—Single-and multi-carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were laterally self-assembled and grown between two electrodes. Input voltage superimposed with various biases on the devices showed that semiconductor-like CNTs have tunable rectification with changing bias. In contrast, output voltage was insignificant for linear I-V (ohmic contact). The equivalent resistance was(More)
PURPOSE To determine frequency of and assess risk factors for hepatic artery (HA) injury during percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) and to discuss the technique and report the clinical outcome of embolization for HA injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 14-year period (2002-2016), 1,304 PTBD procedures in 920 patients were recorded. The(More)
