PURPOSE The image noise and image quality of a prototype ultra-high-resolution computed tomography (U-HRCT) scanner was evaluated and compared with those of conventional high-resolution CT (C-HRCT) scanners. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board. A U-HRCT scanner prototype with 0.25 mm x 4 rows and operating at(More)
PURPOSE Many stereoscopic displays require glasses that are awkward or inappropriate for use in a neurosurgical operating room. A glass-free three-dimensional autostereoscopic display (3DAD) monitor was developed and tested for neurosurgical applications. METHODS Our 3DAD system uses images acquired from nine directions projected into the viewer's eyes(More)
In this paper, we propose a methodology (in the form of a software package) for automatic extraction of the cancerous nuclei in lung pathological color images. We first segment the images using an unsupervised Hopfield artificial neural network classifier and we label the segmented image based on chromaticity features and histogram analysis of the RGB color(More)
