We present three cases of desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma in patients admitted to our institution in the past 8 years. CT and MR findings are discussed. Typically, these lesions are located in the frontal and parietal lobes, appearing as cystic tumors with a solid cortical component within the cerebrum, which enhances intensely, and moderate(More)
Scoliosis is the most common skeletal abnormality in neurofibromatosis, occurring in at least 10% of patients [1, 2]. Spinal MR is commonly used to assess the intraspinal contents prior to surgery for scoliosis. We report a case of neurofibromatosis I with dysplastic scoliosis which demonstrated an extradural mass on MR. Subsequent CT scan showed the(More)
BACKGROUND Childhood asthma is characterized by inflammation of the airways. Structural changes of the airway wall may also be seen in some children early in the course of the disease. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are key mediators in the metabolism of the extracellular matrix (ECM). OBJECTIVE To investigate the balance of MMP-8, MMP-9 and tissue(More)
Airway inflammation in children can be assessed by nonbronchoscopic bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL). Little is known about the repeatability of cell counts in the BAL obtained. Children (n=43) attending for elective surgery were studied. Cell counts were obtained following a nonbronchoscopic lavage. Two samples were obtained with either: 1) the catheter wedged(More)
Over a 12-year period, the authors encountered 2 patients with spinal axis/basimeningeal primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) involving the spinal axis extramedullary, intradural compartment and the basimeninges. In neither patient was an intraaxial focus demonstrated. A 48-year-old woman had computed tomography (CT) findings of hydrocephalus and later(More)
This paper involves object detection, object tracking and classification of objects, and indexing from vehicle surveillance videos automatically. The objects are detected using optical flow method and tracked using Kalman Filtering method. The objects extracted are classified using ten features including shape based features such as area, height, width,(More)
In this paper, a vision-based real-time traffic analysis system is presented, which can analyze vehicles in traffic from a traffic video sequence. This paper discusses object detection, and tracking of objects in multiple video frames. The functionalities of traffic analysis using computer vision include vehicle speed estimation, traffic flow direction(More)
