Plaques in the carotid artery result in stenosis, which is one of the main causes for stroke. Patients have to be carefully selected for stenosis treatments as they carry some risk. Since patients with symptomatic plaques have greater risk for strokes, an objective classification technique that classifies the plaques into symptomatic and asymptomatic(More)
Ultrasound-based thyroid nodule characterization into benign and malignant types is limited by subjective interpretations. This paper presents a Computer Aided Diagnostic (CAD) technique that would present more objective and accurate classification and further would offer the physician a valuable second opinion. In this paradigm, we first extracted the(More)
In the field of quantitative microscopy, textural information plays a significant role very often in tissue characterization and diagnosis, in addition to morphology and intensity. The aim of this work is to improve the classification accuracy based on textural features for the development of a computer assisted screening of oral sub-mucous fibrosis (OSF).(More)
Oral cancer (OC) is the sixth most common cancer in the world. In India it is the most common malignant neoplasm. Histopathological images have widely been used in the differential diagnosis of normal, oral precancerous (oral sub-mucous fibrosis (OSF)) and cancer lesions. However, this technique is limited by subjective interpretations and less accurate(More)
Among gynecological malignancies, ovarian cancer is the most frequent cause of death. Preoperative determination of whether a tumor is benign or malignant has often been found to be difficult. Because of such inconclusive findings from ultrasound images and other tests, many patients with benign conditions have been offered unnecessary surgeries thereby(More)
OBJECTIVES Computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) techniques aid physicians in better diagnosis of diseases by extracting objective and accurate diagnostic information from medical data. Hashimoto thyroiditis is the most common type of inflammation of the thyroid gland. The inflammation changes the structure of the thyroid tissue, and these changes are reflected(More)
Analysis of changes in cancer cell morphology and cytoskeletal element induced by external stimuli is focus of current cancer chemotherapeutic studies. Cancer cell cytoskeleton is complex network of interwoven protein fibers composed of microtubules, microfilaments and intermediate filaments. These interwoven protein fibers are responsible for maintaining(More)

This paper is aimed at analyzing the efficiency of decrypting the bit locked volumes in PIN only mode. Based on the findings this paper considers the issue of decrypting the bit locked volumes in PIN only mode. The main drawback of the full volume encryption application is that it leaves several copies of the key used for encrypting the drive in the(More)
Securing End to End Communication in mobile ad-hoc networks are difficult than the ones for fixed, while the security requirements are same namely availability, confidentiality, integrity, authentication and non repudiation. The difference occurs due to system constraints in mobile devices and frequent topology changes in the network. System constraints(More)
