DESIGN A prospective study from January 2004 to August 2006 in a tertiary medical centre. SETTING A tertiary medical centre, Tzu Chi General Hospital. METHODS In the modified radical neck dissection, the topographic anatomy of(More)
This paper presents a new Bayesian nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) for monaural source separation. Using this approach, the reconstruction error based on NMF is represented by a Poisson distribution, and the NMF parameters, consisting of the basis and weight matrices, are characterized by the exponential priors. A variational Bayesian inference(More)
This paper proposes a new Bayesian nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) for speech and music separation. We introduce the Poisson likelihood for NMF approximation and the exponential prior distributions for the factorized basis matrix and weight matrix. A variational Bayesian (VB) EM algorithm is developed to implement an efficient solution to variational(More)
An endometrial polyp is a frequently encountered abnormality of the uterine cavity that may interfere with normal embryo implantation. In this case-control study, we enrolled 56 women in whom endometrial polyps were incidentally diagnosed by transvaginal ultrasound and office hysteroscopy during IVF (Group 1), and 112 age-matched IVF controls randomly(More)
BACKGROUND Diphallia poses several surgical, psychological, and esthetic issues. Currently, diphallia is only diagnosed after birth. CASE We present a true diphallia in one fetus of dichorionic twins noted at 23 weeks of gestation. In this fetus, two phallus-like protrusions and a bifid scrotum, as well as a duplicated collecting system of both kidneys,(More)
The role of LH during ovarian stimulation remains uncertain. Previous studies defined the low LH group using a single LH measurement on a predefined day of stimulation possibly not reflecting the entire follicular phase. This study retrospectively collected data from 619 IVF/ICSI cycles with GnRH antagonist and recombinant FSH. The low LH group was defined(More)
