In this work, we have proposed an on-line computer-aided diagnostic system called "UroImage" that classifies a Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) image into cancerous or non-cancerous with the help of non-linear Higher Order Spectra (HOS) features and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) coefficients. The UroImage system consists of an on-line system where five(More)
Introduction: Technological advancements have reduced the morbidity associated with cryosurgery, leading to an increased interest in this modality for the treatment of organ-confined prostate cancer. In this study, we critically examine the current role of cryoablation of the prostate to better understand how to counsel patients regarding this treatment(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE While the power needed to initiate bipolar vaporization is higher than conventional monopolar resection, the energy needed to maintain bipolar vaporization is significantly lower and may result in less thermal tissue injury. This may have implications for hemostasis, scarring, and perioperative morbidity. The objective of this study(More)
