We have reviewed the management of pregnant women presenting with acute myeloblastic leukaemia (AML) at the London Hospital since 1972. Six women in the second or third trimester were diagnosed with AML over this period. One woman had termination of pregnancy at presentation in the second trimester. Three of the remaining five patients achieved complete(More)
The sensitivity of direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation to different array geometries motivates the design of optimal sensor constellations. We propose a framework for array geometry design for a linear array with fixed aperture and fixed inter-element spacing, where the array geometry design is formulated as a sensor selection problem. The sensor(More)
The diagnostic yield of mycobacterial blood cultures, bone marrow biopsy, and liver biopsy for determining the cause of unexplained fever was compared prospectively in eight men and four women with serologic evidence of human immunodeficiency virus infection and fever of undetermined origin. Mycobacterial infection was found in 8 of the 12 patients(More)
In this work, we propose a generalized framework for designing optimal sensor constellations for spatio-temporally correlated field estimation using wireless sensor networks. The accuracy of the field intensity estimate in every point of a given service area strongly depends upon the number and the constellation of the sensors along with the spatio-temporal(More)
In this paper, a method for the estimation of the spatial rainfall distribution over a specified service area from a limited number of path-averaged rainfall measurements is proposed. The aforementioned problem is formulated as a nonnegativity constrained convex optimization problem with priors that influence both sparsity and clustering properties of the(More)
Autologous bone marrow transplantation was performed in a 48-year-old man with relapsed high grade lymphoma. Two hours after the marrow infusion he developed pulmonary infiltrates and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The aetiology of ARDS in this setting is uncertain but probably relates to pulmonary infection and endotoxaemia present at the time(More)
—— The accurate and fast sensing of the radio spectrum is one of the key requirements of any Cognitive Radio (CR) architecture. Wavelet packet-based spectrum estimator (WPSE) is a newly developed method for the detection of active users or spectrum holes in the spectral domain. Various wavelet families with different wavelet parameters exhibit different(More)
