In this paper we report the set-up and results of the Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS) organized in conjunction with the MICCAI 2012 and 2013 conferences. Twenty state-of-the-art tumor segmentation algorithms were applied to a set of 65 multi-contrast MR scans of low- and high-grade glioma patients-manually annotated by up to four(More)
Many methods have been proposed for tissue segmentation in brain MRI scans. The multitude of methods proposed complicates the choice of one method above others. We have therefore established the MRBrainS online evaluation framework for evaluating (semi)automatic algorithms that segment gray matter (GM), white matter (WM), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on 3T(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) plays a relevant role during cell death regulation in tumor cells. The overexpression of nitric oxide synthase type III (NOS-3) induces oxidative and nitrosative stress, p53 and cell death receptor expression and apoptosis in hepatoblastoma cells. S-nitrosylation of cell death receptor modulates apoptosis. Sorafenib is the unique(More)
Vertically resolved optical and microphysical properties of biomass burning aerosols, measured in 2011 with a multiwavelength Raman lidar, are presented. The transportation time, within 1-2 days (or less), pointed towards the presence of relatively fresh smoke particles over the site. Some strong layers aloft were observed with particle backscatter and(More)

A global vertically resolved aerosol data set covering more than 10 years of observations at more than 20 measurement sites distributed from 63 • N to 52 • S and 72 • W to 124 • E has been achieved within the Raman and polarization lidar network Polly NET. This network consists of portable, remote-controlled multiwavelength-polarization-Raman li-dars(More)
BACKGROUND The segmentation of brain tissue into cerebrospinal fluid, gray matter, and white matter in magnetic resonance imaging scans is an important procedure to extract regions of interest for quantitative analysis and disease assessment. Manual segmentation requires skilled experts, being a laborious and time-consuming task; therefore, reliable and(More)
Drusen quantification is important for evaluating age-related macular degeneration (AMD) progress. Most methods for retinal layers segmentation in optical coherence tomography (OCT) depend heavily on prior information. This improves robustness, but also has the downside of increasing surface rigidity. Hence, those algorithms normally smooth drusen borders,(More)
