Advances in computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems have shown the benefits of using computer-based techniques to obtain quantitative image measurements of the extent of a particular disease. Such measurements provide more accurate information that can be used to better study the associations between anatomical changes and clinical findings. Unfortunately,(More)
BACKGROUND Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterized by a strong urge to move the legs and has been shown in many studies with abnormally low brain iron.

Pulmonary hypertension is a common cause of death among patients with sickle cell disease. This retrospective study investigates the use of pulmonary vein analysis to diagnose pulmonary hypertension non-invasively with CT-Angiography images. Ten images from patients with pulmonary hypertension were matched with controls. An adaptive fast marching approach(More)
