Image segmentation plays an important role in medical image processing. Fuzzy c-means (FCM) is one of the popular clustering algorithms for medical image segmentation. But FCM is highly vulnerable to noise due to not considering the spatial information in image segmentation. This paper introduces medium mathematics system which is employed to process fuzzy(More)
This article has been accepted for publication in a future issue of this journal, but has not been fully edited. Content may change prior to final publication. Abstract—In this paper, we propose a heterogeneous framework to deliver the smart grid (SG) data cost effectively. The data generated by distributed SG loads and generation units should be delivered(More)
—In this paper, we investigate uploading monitoring videos for vessels via a maritime wideband communication network. The Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) technology is utilized to establish a shore-side network infrastructure, and a packet store-carry-and-forward routing mechanism is implemented to address the intermittent network(More)
Extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) causes various biological effects through altering intracellular calcium homeostasis. The role of high voltage-gated (HVA) calcium channels in ELF-EMF induced effects has been extensively studied. However, the effect of ELF-EMF on low-voltage-gated (LVA) T-type calcium channels has not been reported.(More)
The inflammatory microenvironment contributes to cancer development and progression. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), as important stromal cells, may be 'educated' by the inflammatory microenvironment to support the development of gastric cancer. Cytokines are a key component of cancer-related inflammation. Interleukin (IL)-6, as an inflammatory cytokine, has(More)
Timely thrombolytic treatment is paramount after acute ischemic stroke (AIS); however, a large proportion of patients experience substantial delays in presentation to hospital. This study evaluates the prevalence and risk factors in pre-hospital delays after AIS in central urban China. AIS patients from 66 hospitals in 13 major cities across Hubei Province,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the catastrophic health expenditure (CHE) prevalence and its determinants between empty-nest and non-empty-nest elderly households. SETTING Shandong province of China. PARTICIPANTS A total of 2761 elderly households are included in the analysis. RESULTS CHE incidence among elderly households was 44.9%.(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Data-driven model Model update Least squares support vector machine NOx emissions Coal-fired boiler This paper presents an adaptive least squares support vector machine (LSSVM) model with a novel update to tackle process variations. The key idea of the update is to divide the process variations into two main categories,(More)
