Quadriceps weakness is an important complication of advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but few data exist concerning muscle bulk in early disease. We hypothesised that quadriceps bulk, measured by ultrasound rectus femoris cross-sectional area (USRF(CSA)), would be reduced in mild, as well as advanced, COPD compared with controls, and(More)
Assessment of focal liver lesions (FLLs) in Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound requires the delineation of the FLL in at least one frame of the acquired data, which is currently performed manually by experienced radiologists. Such a task leads to subjective results, is time-consuming and prone to misinterpretation and human error. This paper describes an attempt(More)
Assessment of focal liver lesions (FLLs) in Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound data requires initialisation tasks that are currently performed manually by experienced radiol-ogists. These tasks lead to subjective results, are time-consuming and prone to misinterpretation and human error. This paper describes an attempt to improve this clinical practice by(More)
The identification and localisation of a focal liver lesion (FLL) in Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) video sequences is crucial for liver cancer diagnosis, treatment planning and follow-up management. Currently, localisation and classification of FLLs between benign and malignant cases in CEUS are routinely performed manually by radiolo-gists, in order(More)
The von Meyenburg complex (VMC) is an uncommon congenital malformation and is characterized by benign bile duct hamartomas. These are usually discovered incidentally and may represent a diagnostic dilemma when liver metastases are suspected. MRI of VMC shows distinct imaging characteristics, but reporting of lesional contrast enhancement has been(More)
Currently, reconngurable computing solutions are developed by writing High level Description Language (HDL) code and compiling it onto hardware. Though this approach is suitable for static reconngurable devices, tools using this approach do not analyze the runtime behavior of the application. Hence designing tools which exploit dynamic reconngurability is(More)
