Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Diagnosing Malignant Pulmonary Nodules/Masses: Comparison with Positron Emission Tomography
Introduction: Recent developments of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) make it possible to image malignant tumors to provide tissue contrast based on difference in the diffusion ofExpand

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging can be used in place of positron emission tomography for N staging of non-small cell lung cancer with fewer false-positive results.
OBJECTIVE One of the deficiencies of positron emission tomography for N staging in lung cancer is a false-positive result caused by concurrent lymphadenitis. Recently, diffusion-weighted magneticExpand

Geothermometry of spinel lherzolites
Three methods of geothermometry, currently used for spinel lherzolites, are refined based on new experiments on subsolidus phase equilibria of olivine, pyroxenes and spinel in CaO-MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 andExpand

Reinforcement learning for a biped robot based on a CPG-actor-critic method
We propose in this article a reinforcement learning framework for a CPG controller, where the CPG-actor-critic is determined by a stochastic policy gradient. Expand
