This paper introduces a new approach for the segmentation of skin lesions in dermoscopic images based on wavelet network (WN). The WN presented here is a member of fixed-grid WNs that is formed with no need of training. In this WN, after formation of wavelet lattice, determining shift and scale parameters of wavelets with two screening stage and selecting(More)
This paper presents a novel computer aided technique for measurement of melanoma depth of invasion. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer with worldwide increasing incidences. For a conclusive diagnosis of melanoma, skin biopsies should be examined under a microscope. Visual inspection of microscopic samples is often subjective, time-consuming,(More)
This paper presents a novel computer aided technique for screening of Collagenous Colitis (CC). CC is a type of microscopic colitis mostly characterized by chronic watery diarrhea which is a common feature with a range of other etiologies. Routine paraclinical tests from CC patients such as endoscopic and radiographic studies are usually normal, and(More)
Some evidence suggests that a variety of genetic factors contributed in pathogenesis of the preeclampsia. The aim of this study was to assess the association between the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) I/D and angiotensin II type1 receptor A1166C polymorphisms with preeclampsia. This study was performed in 125 preeclamptic pregnant women and 132(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Although preeclampsia is one of the most common complications of pregnancy, the exact etiology of preeclampsia is unknown. Paraoxonase-1 (PON1) is a high-density lipoprotein-associated enzyme, which exhibits antioxidative and antiatherogenic activities. This study was aimed to determine the possible association between L55M and Q192R(More)
BACKGROUND Preeclampsia (PE) is one of the most important complications of pregnancy that is associated with significant mortality and morbidity in mother and fetus. Since the etiologic factors in its development are still unclear, we aimed to examine the intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) gene K469E polymorphism in preeclamptic and control healthy(More)
BACKGROUND Prostatic adenocarcinoma is the most prevalent cancer and the second cause of cancer-related death among men. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) considered as a preventable risk factor for prostatic adenocarcinoma. In this study, we detected the frequency of HPV infection in prostatic adenocarcinoma and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Isfahan. (More)
BACKGROUND Rhinocerebral mucormycosis is a fatal infection typically affecting diabetic or immunosuppressed patients. In most cases, infection is caused by inhalation of fungal spores. Mortality rate of patients is very high (40-85%). CASE PRESENTATION In this study, three diabetic patients with rhinocerebral mucormycosis were presented. The etiologic(More)
Hydatid disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus and Echinococcus multilocularis commonly presents with pulmonary and hepatic cysts. Primary paraspinal muscle cysts are a rare presentation. We report a case of hydatid cyst within paraspinal muscles presenting with cervical mass and associated pain. The hydatid disease serological test was negative. Neither(More)
AIM Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an angiogenic factor whose production is increased in pre-eclampsia (PE). Therefore, the present study was conducted aiming at assessing the possible association of VEGF polymorphisms with PE susceptibility in the southeast of Iran. MATERIAL AND METHODS Overall, 192 PE women and 186 unrelated age-matched(More)
