Background: Recent technological advances in integrated circuits, wireless communications, and physiological sensing allow miniature, lightweight, ultra-low power, intelligent monitoring devices. A number of these devices can be integrated into a Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN), a new enabling technology for health monitoring.
Recent technological advances in sensors, low-power integrated circuits, and wireless communications have enabled the design of low-cost, miniature, lightweight, intelligent physiological sensor platforms that can be seamlessly integrated into a body area network for health monitoring. Wireless body area networks (WBANs) promise unobtrusive ambulatory(More)
We retrospectively studied patients who had undergone orthotopic liver transplantation and who also had electroencephalography to determine whether epileptiform changes were associated with a poor neurological outcome. Study groups were 36 patients who died after transplantation (141 electroencephalograms) and underwent neuropathological examination, 11 who(More)
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic technique that allows a physician to inspect the inside of the human colon. In current practice, videos captured from colonoscopic procedures are not routinely stored for either manual or automated post-procedure analysis. In this paper, we introduce new algorithms for automated detection of the presence of the shape of the(More)
Colonoscopy is an endoscopic technique that allows a physician to inspect the inside of the human colon. Although millions of colonoscopic procedures are performed annually, an objective method that estimates how much effort was undertaken to insure maximal inspection of the visible parts of the inside of the colon, does not exist. Experts agree that it is(More)
Despite the occurrence of serious side effects, the use of cyclosporin A after organ transplantation has increased because of its ability to effectively suppress allograft rejection. Its use in the treatment of ophthalmic disease has also recently increased. Central nervous system toxicity due to cyclosporin A is a significant but apparently clinically(More)
We here report isolation of exon 1 and analysis of the human B-50 promoter. A human genomic lambda EMBL3 library was screened with a homologous PCR probe. Two independent clones were analyzed and partially sequenced: They contained up to 5 kb sequence upstream of the translation start site and approx 13 kb of intron 1 sequence. There was a high degree of(More)
INTRODUCTION Colonoscopy screening reduces colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence and mortality. CRC screening is recommended at age 50 for average-risk people. Screening of first-degree relatives of CRC patients is recommended to begin at age 40 or 10 years before the age at diagnosis of the youngest relative diagnosed with CRC. CRC incidence has increased(More)
We study global optimization (GOP) in the framework of non-linear inverse problems with a unique solution. These problems are in general ill-posed. Evaluation of the objective function is often expensive, as it implies the solution of a non-trivial forward problem. The ill-posedness of these problems calls for regularization while the high evaluation cost(More)
