This paper presents an approach for detecting microcalcifications in digital mammograms employing wavelet-based subband image decomposition. The microcalcifications appear in small clusters of few pixels with relatively high intensity compared with their neighboring pixels. These image features can be preserved by a detection system that employs a suitable(More)
Dofetilide is currently recommended as second-tier therapy to maintain sinus rhythm in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) and normal left ventricular function, yet limited data support this recommendation. We examined the safety and efficacy of dofetilide in this setting through a retrospective chart review. We evaluated patients who had(More)
Background: Although with some disadvantages, combining radiotracer and isosulfan blue facilitates the detection of sentinel lymph nodes. This study was designed to evaluate the use of 99mTc-labeled phthalocyanine tetrasulfonate (99mTc-PCTS) as a single agent for simultaneous blue staining and radiotracer localization of the sentinel lymph node. Methods:(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examined the risk of proarrhythmic events in patients receiving antiarrhythmic drugs for treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) according to present-day safety guidelines. BACKGROUND Advances in understanding the proarrhythmic risk of antiarrhythmic drugs has led to development of safety guidelines for these agents. Such guidelines(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a new alternative which affords symptomatic improvement in two-thirds of patients who exhibit medically refractory congestive heart failure (CHF) as well as significant prolongation of the QRS duration (>135 msec). As more experience with CRT accrues, unexpected complications of this promising therapy(More)
Breast cancer can be diagnosed with an early training course by detecting the presence of microcalcifications in screening mammograms. The multiresolution analysis using discrete wavelet transform presents characteristics which can be exploited to develop tools for detection of microcalcifications. The objective of this work is to study the best type of(More)
Breast cancer is one of the usual cancers among the women in the worldwide population. The research paper is developing of a reliable tool to detect earlier signs of the breast cancer in mammograms. Accuracy rate of breast cancer in mammogram depends on image segmentation. Doctors and radiologists can miss the abnormality, due to inexperience's in the(More)
