The reproductive ability of 150 men occupationally exposed to lead were studied by clinical and toxicological analysis. Subjects were divided into four groups: lead-poisoned workmen (23) and those showing a moderate (42), slight (35), or physiologic absorption (50). Findings show that (1) Lead poisoning as well as moderate increased absorption of lead(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains a leading cause of death by cancer worldwide. Computerized diagnosis systems relying on novel imaging markers gained significant importance in recent years. Our aim was to integrate a novel morphometric measurement--the fractal dimension (FD)--into an artificial neural network (ANN) designed to(More)
Purpose: The study aims to assess the correlation between stromal fibrillary component (SFC) and vascular density (VD) in Gleason architectural patterns of prostate carcinoma. Materials and Methods: 680 digital images of prostate adenocarcinoma labeled following both Gleason and Srigley systems were acquired with X20 objective from serial sections, one(More)
The authors made a preliminary assessment of possible correlations between the amount of intratumoral stromal fibrillary components (ISFC) and the architectural tumoral patterns described by Gleason. The studied material consisted of samples obtained by transurethral resection from 34 patients diagnosed with prostatic adenocarcinoma. Ten fields, five for(More)
The authors made a preliminary assessment of possible correlations between the intratumoral vascular density (IVD) and the architectural tumoral patterns described by Gleason. The studied material consisted of samples obtained by transurethral resection from 34 patients diagnosed with prostatic adenocarcinoma. Ten fields, five for dominant and five for(More)
Aortic size is known to be a predictor for cardiovascular deaths. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether aortic diameters measured on tissue samples obtained during autopsy from subjects that died of cardiovascular disease were bigger when compared to those from subjects deceased from other cause than cardiovascular disease. The study included(More)
Advances in technology made the migration of pathological diagnosis to digital slides possible. As the need for objectivity and automation emerged, new computer software algorithms were proposed. Computer algorithms demand accurate color and intensity values in order to provide reliable results. The tissue samples undergo several processing steps from(More)
The work deals with a group of 212 patients suffering from various forms of precirrhotic alcoholic liver disease and includes a period of 8.5 years (January 1981-June 1989). At least two liver biopsies were performed in all patients. according to the histological diagnosis, the patients were distributed into 6 subgroups: simple hepatic steatosis--24 cases(More)
