Despite the enormous safety measures that transfusion and blood bank services perform for each product, transfusion of blood products is not without risk. The majority of transfusion-related reactions and complications are recognized soon after transfusion. We report a(More)
The application of artificial intelligence technologies encompasses a number of fields with opportunities for exploiting these tools to solve real world problems that traditional programming environments do not offer. Expert systems offer a structured approach to knowledge representation and use techniques to manipulate data in ways that may generate(More)
"A new family of migration models belonging to the elimination by aspects family is examined, with the spatial interaction model shown to be a special case. The models have simple forms; they incorporate information flow processes and choice set constraints; they are free of problems raised by the Luce Choice Axiom; and are capable of generating(More)
I have extensive experience in image-based methods for scene reconstruction. Prior to my employment at UBC, my doctoral and post-doctoral work has been heavily focused on the areas of image-based representation of objects, imaged-based reconstruction of geometry from image data, and virtual and augmented reality. In the area of image-based modeling, I have(More)
Record keeping within research animal care facilities is a key part of the guidelines set forth by national regulatory bodies and mandated by federal laws. Research facilities must maintain records of animal health issues, procedures and usage. Facilities are also required to maintain records regarding regular husbandry such as general animal checks,(More)
INTRODUCTION Graves' disease (GD) and thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) are thought to result from actions of pathogenic antibodies mediated through the thyrotropin receptor (TSHR). This leads to the unregulated consequences of the antibody-mediated receptor activity in the thyroid and connective tissues of the orbit. Recent studies reveal antibodies(More)
