BACKGROUND Upregulation of Th1 associated intrahepatic cytokines in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection should lead to a significant non-specific cellular immune response, a prerequisite for viral clearance. However, to date, the role of this non-specific response in HCV has been understudied. AIMS To analyse the intrahepatic macrophage activity in(More)
BACKGROUND Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is an autoimmune disease in which the pathogenesis of progressive liver injury is poorly understood. AIM To provide novel insights into the pathogenesis of PBC related liver injury using cDNA array analysis, which simultaneously examines expression of many genes. METHODS Utilising cDNA arrays of 874 genes, PBC(More)
Image-based rendering (IBR) involves constructing an image from a new viewpoint, using several input images from different viewpoints. Our approach is to acquire or estimate the depth for each pixel of each input image. We then reconstruct the new view from the resulting collection of 3D points. When rendering images from photographs, acquiring and(More)
We present a system for rendering novel viewpoints from a set of calibrated and silhouette-segmented images using the visual hull together with multi-view stereo. The visual hull predicted from the object silhouettes is used to restrict the search range of the multi-view stereo. This reduces redundant computation and the possibility of incorrect matches.(More)
Images synthesized by light field rendering exhibit aliasing artifacts when the light field is undersampled; adding new light field samples improves the image quality and reduces aliasing but new samples are expensive to acquire. Light field rays are traditionally gathered directly from the source images, but new rays can also be inferred through geometry(More)
We propose to look at light fields from a dual space point of view. The advantage, in addition to revealing some new insights, is a framework that combines the benefits of many existing works. Using the well known two-plane-parameterization, we derive the duality between the 4-D light field and the 3-D world space. In the dual light field, rays become hyper(More)
