In 83 patients with acute pancreatitis, the initial computed tomographic (CT) examinations were classified by degree of disease severity (grades A-E) and were correlated with the clinical follow-up, objective prognostic signs, and complications and death. The length of hospitalization correlated well with the severity of the initial CT findings. Abscesses(More)
Pancreatic abscess has become the most common cause of death from acute pancreatitis. Since computed tomography (CT) permits noninvasive imaging of the peripancreatic anatomy, the relationship of early CT findings to late pancreatic sepsis has been evaluated in 83 patients with acute pancreatitis. Pancreatic abscesses developed in 18 patients and were(More)
We propose a framework where the human-robot interaction is modeled as a multimodal dialogue which is regulated by an attentional system that guides the system towards the execution of structured tasks. We introduce a simple case study to illustrate the system at work in different conditions considering top-down regulations and dialogue flows in synergic(More)
We propose a robotic cognitive control framework that exploits supervisory attention and contention scheduling for flexible and adaptive orchestration of structured tasks. Specifically, in the proposed system, top-down and bottom-up attentional processes are exploited to modulate the execution of hierarchical robotic behaviors conciliating goal-oriented and(More)
In human-robot interactive scenarios communication and collaboration during task execution are crucial issues. Since the human behavior is unpredictable and ambiguous, an interactive robotic system is to continuously interpret intentions and goals adapting its executive and communicative processes according to the users behaviors. In this work, we propose(More)
