The accomplishments to date on the development of automatic vehicle control (AVC) technology in the Program on Advanced Technology for the Highway (PATH) at the University of California, Berkeley, are summarized. The basic prqfiiples and assumptions underlying the PATH work are identified, ‘followed by explanations of the work on automating vehicle lateral(More)
Increasing reports suggest that discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) might provide a novel therapeutical target for human cancers, including osteosarcoma. Previous studies have shown that miR-32 was dysregulated in breast and endometrial cancer. However, its biological roles in osteosarcoma remain unclear. In the current study, we found that miR-32 was(More)
Aiming to improve positioning precision of the GPS/INS integrated navigation system during GPS outages, a novel model combined with strong tracking Kalman filter (STKF) and wavelet neural network (WNN) algorithms for INS errors compensation is proposed and tested. STKF is used to estimate INS errors as a replacement of Kalman filter (KF), and WNN is applied(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristic imaging features of giant cell tumours (GCTs) of the mobile spine. Thirty pathologically proven GCTs of the mobile spine were reviewed. X-ray (n = 18), computed tomography (CT) (n = 24) and magnetic resonance (MR) (n = 21) images were retrospectively evaluated. Five tumours were located in the(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the local recurrence rate of giant cell tumour of bone (GCTB) with soft tissue extension, to identify characteristics of the soft tissue extension that can best indicate recurrence of GCTB after intralesional curettage. A total of 48 cases of GCTB with soft tissue extension after intralesional curettage were recruited.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the biomechanical characteristics of dynamic hip screw (DHS) and proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA) for the treatment of 3 types of osteoporotic femoral intertrochanteric fracture (OFIF) by modeling, and virtual reduction with finite element analysis, and to provide some theoretical basis and reference to select the best(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the methods of CT-guided percutaneous removal of osteoid osteoma. METHODS From February 2003 to December 2003, there were 11 patients, at a mean age of 19.3 years old (from 14 to 32 years old). Seven cases were male, and 4 cases were female. Diagnosis was supported by the complete clinical and imaging file. Eleven cases with osteoid(More)
BACKGROUND Maternal gestational smoking, diabetes, alcohol drinking, and pre-pregnancy obesity are thought to increase the risk of cryptorchidism in newborn males, but the evidence is inconsistent. METHOD We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies on the association between maternal gestational smoking, diabetes, alcohol drinking, and(More)
