In this communication is reported a neonate with Yunis Varon syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive disorder, born to a consanguineously married couple who had microcephaly, wide cranial sutures, prominent eyes, hypertelorism, dysplastic ears, sparse hairs, cupid bow like upper lip with median pseudocleft and labio-gingival retraction. Bilateral hypoplasia of(More)
The Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) radar concept exploits the independence between signals at the array elements unlike beamforming which presumes a high correlation between signals either transmitted or received by an array. Radar Cross Section (RCS) of a complex target varies with both transmitted frequency and target geometry. By widely separating(More)
In this paper, we present a region growing technique for color image segmentation. Conventional image segmentation techniques using region growing requires initial seeds selection, which increases computational cost & execution time. To overcome this problem, a single seeded region growing technique for image segmentation is proposed, which starts(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have become one of the emerging trends of the modern communication systems. Routing plays a vital role in the design of a WSNs as normal IP based routing will not suffice. Design issues for a routing protocol involve various key parameters like energy awareness, security, QoS requirement etc. Energy awareness is one of the(More)
This paper compares the performance of hard and soft-decision turbo coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing systems with Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) and 16-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (16-QAM). The results show that the soft-decision method greatly outperforms the hard-decision method. Using simplified algorithm for the soft-output(More)
This paper proposes a novel turbo decoding scheme for additive white class A noise (AWAN) channel. It compares the performance of turbo coded systems with Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) and 16-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (16-QAM) on AWAN channel with two different channel values-one computed as per additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel(More)
Spondyloenchondrodysplasia is a rare immuno-osseous dysplasia caused by biallelic mutations in ACP5. We aimed to provide a survey of the skeletal, neurological and immune manifestations of this disease in a cohort of molecularly confirmed cases. We compiled clinical, genetic and serological data from a total of 26 patients from 18 pedigrees, all with(More)
