—This paper deals with distributed detection using a tandem network with conditionally dependent observations. Our approach utilizes a recently proposed hierarchical conditional independence model where a hidden variable is introduced and induces conditional independence among sensor observations. If the hidden variable is discrete, optimal local decision(More)
Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a cerebrovascular disease characterized by progressive stenosis of the intracranial internal carotid arteries and their proximal branches. However, the etiology of this rare disease remains unknown. Serum microRNA (miRNA) profiles have been screened to identify novel biomarkers of prognostic values. Here, we identified serum miRNAs(More)
Dengue virus (DENV) is a mosquito-borne virus that has four serotypes. Collection of serum from patients is time- and labor- consuming, and presents a high injury risk for infants and children. The genomic and serological diagnosis of imported dengue fever from a urine sample was used as a non-invasive diagnostic method in this study. A serum sample was(More)
The elderly patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) have a greater risk of poor clinical outcome after endovascular treatment (EVT) than younger patients do. Hence, it is necessary to explore which factors are associated with poor outcome and develop a predictive score specifically for elderly patients with aSAH receiving EVT. The aim of(More)
This paper offers an improved error diffusion algorithm for its real-time implementation in FPGA by creating Error-Error Diffusion Value Lookup Tables to spare multiplications, adopting four pipelines instead of traditional sequential process, and performing color error diffusion in four parallel channels among other techniques whereby it takes only one(More)
BACKGROUND A cost-effective, accurate and rapid simultaneous multiplex assay is required for testing and diagnoses of conventional and emerging viruses in clinical virology laboratories. We developed and optimized a dual priming oligonucleotide (DPO) multiplex PCR assay for detecting influenza viruses including seasonal H1N1, 2009 pandemic H1N1, H3N2,(More)
