Accurate staging of nodal cancer still relies on surgical exploration because many primary malignancies spread via lym-phatic dissemination. The purpose of this study was to utilize nanoparticle-enhanced lymphotropic magnetic resonance imaging (LN-MRI) to explore semi-automated noninvasive nodal cancer staging. We present a joint image segmentation and(More)
It is well known that natural languages share certain aspects of their design. For example, across languages, syllables like blif are preferred to lbif. But whether language universals are myths or mentally active constraints-linguistic or otherwise-remains controversial. To address this question, we used fMRI to investigate brain response to four syllable(More)
An analysis of the kinetics of myocardial contrast enhancement is an important component of myocardial perfusion studies. The contrast enhancement can be modeled by a linear time-invariant system, and the myocardial impulse response, calculated by deconvolution of the measured tissue response with an arterial input, gives a direct estimate of myocardial(More)
Web sites are now considered an extension of the entire business, not just an additional channel or storefront or a simple information portal for the company. Creating an effective web site that gives a positive overall experience to the customers and visitors is important in business today. Measuring the quality of web site from the users' perspective,(More)
Body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is challenging because of the complex interaction of multiple factors, including motion arising from respiration and bowel peristalsis, susceptibility effects secondary to bowel gas, and the need to cover a large field of view. The combination of these factors makes body MR imaging more prone to artifacts, compared with(More)
