PURPOSE The authors present a fully automatic algorithm for the segmentation of the prostate in three-dimensional magnetic resonance (MR) images. METHODS The approach requires the use of an anatomical atlas which is built by computing transformation fields mapping a set of manually segmented images to a common reference. These transformation fields are(More)
There is no or limited consensus on the quantitative impact of institutions on unemployment, which has led some to question the case for structural reforms. Recent studies suggest also that institutions interact with each other and cannot be analysed in isolation. In this paper, we estimate a standard reduced-form model to explore the institutional(More)
Purpose: This paper presents the preliminary results of a semi-automatic method for prostate segmentation of Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) which aims to be incorporated in a navigation system for prostate brachyther-apy. Methods: The method is based on the registration of an anatomical atlas computed from a population of 18 MRI exams onto a patient image.(More)
The poor signal-to-noise ratio in transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) images makes the fully automatic segmentation of the prostate challenging and most approaches proposed in the literature still lack robustness and accuracy. However, it is relatively straightforward to obtain high quality segmentations in magnetic resonance (MR) images. In the context of MR to(More)
Any opinions expressed here are those of the author(s) and not those of the institute. Research disseminated by IZA may include views on policy, but the institute itself takes no institutional policy positions. The Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn is a local and virtual international research center and a place of communication between(More)
In this paper we consider the structural analysis problem for differential-algebraic systems with conditional equations. This consists, given a conditional differential algebraic system, in verifying if the system is well-constrained for every state and if not in finding a state for which the system is bad-constrained. We first show that the problem reduces(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most malignant type of primary brain tumor with a very poor prognosis. The actual standard protocol of treatment for GBM patients consists of radiotherapy and concomitant temozolomide (TMZ). However, the therapeutic efficacy of this treatment is limited due to tumor recurrence and TMZ resistance. Recently isolated, glioma stem-like(More)
SUMMARY The report presents the results and conclusions of a pilot study designed to evaluate the potential use of aerial gamma ray measurements in epidemiological investigations of leukaemia. The sources of natural radiation were reviewed and associations between U, Th and K and dose to the human population noted. The association between leukaemia and(More)
