This paper describes the robust reading competitions for ICDAR 2003. With the rapid growth in research over the last few years on recognizing text in natural scenes, there is an urgent need to establish some common benchmark datasets, and gain a clear understanding of the current state of the art. We use the term robust reading to refer to text images that(More)
The clinical and pathological features of 150 cases of ovarian small cell carcinoma of the hypercalcemic type are described. The patients ranged from 9 to 43 (average 23.9) years of age. The serum calcium level was known to be elevated in 49 of the 79 patients (62%) whose preoperative calcium levels were measured. Four of these patients had symptoms of(More)
We investigated 203 ovarian tumors and tumor-like lesions for inhibin expression using a monoclonal anti-inhibin alpha antibody. Inhibin was present in the tumor cells in all 14 primary adult granulosa cell tumors (4 luteinized) plus 3 metastatic, all 10 primary juvenile granulosa cell tumors plus 1 metastatic, 10 of 11 thecomas, 3 of 11 fibromas, 4 of 11(More)
Gonadal sex cord-stromal tumors contain some of the most morphologically interesting neoplasms of the gonads and these lead to many important issues in differential diagnosis. The pathology of these tumors is reviewed with emphasis on new information, similarities and differences in the two gonads, and diagnostic problems. Sertoli cell tumors occur in both(More)
The clinical and pathological features of 125 juvenile granulosa cell tumors of the ovary were analyzed. The patients ranged in age from newborn to 67 years (average 13 years). Forty-four percent were 10 years of age or younger, 34% between 11 and 20 years, 18% between 21 and 30 years, and 3% over 30 years of age. Eighty-two percent of the prepubertal(More)
Endometriosis of the intestinal tract may mimic a number of diseases both clinically and pathologically. The authors evaluated 44 cases of intestinal endometriosis in which endometriosis was the primary pathologic diagnosis, and evaluated them for a variety of gross and histologic changes. Cases with preneoplastic or neoplastic changes were excluded(More)
PURPOSE Following a thorough Phase I/II study, we evaluated by a Phase III trial high versus conventional dose external beam irradiation as mono-therapy for patients with Stage T3-T4 prostate cancer. Patient outcome following standard dose radiotherapy or following a 12.5% increase in total dose to 75.6 Cobalt Gray Equivalent (CGE) using a conformal(More)
The clinical and pathological features of 207 ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors from our consultation and hospital files were reviewed. The patients ranged in age from 2 to 75 (average 25) years. Seventy-five percent of them were 30 years of age or younger and less than 10% were over 50 years of age. One-third of the patients presented because of(More)
Sixty Sertoli cell tumors of the testis, excluding large cell calcifying and sclerosing subtypes, are described. Patient age ranged from 15 to 80 years (mean, 45 years). The initial manifestation was usually a testicular mass; in 14 cases it had been enlarging slowly for a period of up to 14 years (mean 3.7 years). Only five patients had testicular pain.(More)
Malignant mullerian mixed tumors (MMMTs) of the uterine cervix are rare; less than 30 cases have been reported in the literature and only 14 have been described in detail. As a result, the clinical and pathologic features of these tumors are not well characterized. The clinicopathologic features of nine cervical MMMTs (all cases referred because of problems(More)
