We propose an algorithm of blood vessel segmentation for MRA data in this paper. The generic region growing, as well as thresholding, is not appropriate to extract the whole part of the vessels on MRA data. This is because of the image property of the MRA, where the intensity of each pixel on the blood area depends on the amount of blood flow. Moreover,(More)
We investigated which recumbent position is preferred by patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) and whether sympathetic nervous modulation differs in three recumbent positions. We assessed 12 patients with CHF by spectral analysis of heart-rate variability and measurement of plasma norepinephrine concentrations. The right lateral decubitus position was(More)
