Five metrics for scene change detection in video sequences are presented. Metrics previously applied to this problem are surveyed, and are quantitatively compared to the new metrics. Results show that the proposed metrics are superior.
Parameters of humoral and cellular immunity have been measured in 91 asthmatic patients. Mean serum levels of IgG and IgE were raised. IgG levels were higher in those with a family history of asthma. IgE levels were higher in those with a past history of atopic eczema, but intrinsic and extrinsic asthma could not be differentiated on the basis of IgE… (More)
This case report documents fetal death in utero at 30 weeks' gestation due to subdural and subarachnoid haemorrhages, resulting from a motor vehicle accident in which the mother sustained 'seat belt' and facial injuries. There was no evidence of placental abruption. The causes of fetal deaths in utero following maternal involvement in motor vehicle… (More)
Biopsy specimens of the uterine cervix, including colposcopically directed punch biopsy specimens of females with atypical Papanicolaou smear tests, are suitable for analysis by magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. A narrow lined lipid MR spectrum, characteristic of malignant tissue, is obtained from a 6-mm3 biopsy specimen of histologically confirmed… (More)
The in vitro autoradiographic distribution of calcium channel antagonist binding sites for 1,4-dihydropyridine and phenylalkylamine has been investigated in rat, guinea pig and human brain. 1,4-dihydropyridine ([3H] (+) PN200-110) and phenylalkylamine ([3H] (-) D-888) binding sites are identically distributed in the brain of the three mammalian species… (More)
