BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Recently, significant progress has been made toward the development of optical, noninvasive medical diagnostics. The goal of this study was to evaluate elastic scatter measurements as a tool for diagnosing bladder cancer. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS In vivo measurements on 10 patients with suspected bladder cancer were(More)
Noninvasive characterization of renal artery blood flow variables in the human has not been reported. Using a unique dual-frequency real-time two-dimensional echo Doppler (Duplex scanner) that was calibrated in vitro, we characterized renal artery blood flow patterns in 16 normal subjects (6 females). Calculated mean values of systolic diameter (Ds),(More)
A total of 248 hypertensive patients 45 years old or older with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) was included in this 16-week, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group dose-response study. Doxazosin, a selective alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist, produced a significant increase in maximum urinary flow rate (2.3 to 3.6 ml. per second) at(More)
This paper describes a mature Software Engineering Process that may be applied to capstone courses, student projects, and research projects in a university environment. This process, based in part on the Team Software Process of the Software Engineering Institute, features mature software engineering best practices, including extensive use of metrics to(More)
A major thrust of modern software engineering methods, languages, and tools is to promote software visibility and to present information about the underlying software architecture. With large, complex software systems, automated tools are indispensable for identifying the architectural components, the structure that interconnects them, and other subtle(More)
