In this work we automatically segment the left ventricle (LV) in cardiac MR images in the end-diastole (ED) and end-systole (ES) phases using a novel approach that combines statistical and deterministic deformable models. A 3D Active Appearance Model (AAM) is used to segment the ED phase. The AAM texture model is trained on radial samples from gradient(More)
Peptide toxins are invaluable tools for studying the structure and physiology of ion channels. Pseudechetoxin (PsTx) is the first known peptide toxin that targets cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) ion channels, which play a critical role in sensory transduction in the visual and olfactory systems. PsTx inhibited channel currents at low nM concentrations when(More)
UNLABELLED We describe a case of a 58-year-old man with cardiogenic shock who underwent triple vessel coronary artery bypass and a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. His course was complicated by stroke, worsening mitral regurgitation, aortic regurgitation, and multiple cardiac thrombi while on the device. We provide the details of the(More)
