Gene expression data from microarrays are being applied to predict preclinical and clinical endpoints, but the reliability of these predictions has not been established. In the MAQC-II project, 36 independent teams analyzed six microarray data sets to generate predictive models for classifying a sample with respect to one of 13 endpoints indicative of lung(More)
The Internet has recently been evolving from homogeneous congestion control to heterogeneous congestion control. Several years ago, Internet traffic was mainly controlled by the traditional RENO, whereas it is now controlled by multiple different TCP algorithms, such as RENO, CUBIC, and Compound TCP (CTCP). However, there is very little work on the(More)
RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies are poised to revolutionize retail, warehouse and supply chain management. One of their interesting applications is to automatically detect missing tags (and the associated objects) in a large storage space. In order to timely catch any missing event such as theft, the detection operation may have to be(More)
The use and quality of longitudinal research designs has increased over the past two decades, and new approaches for analyzing longitudinal data, including multi-level modeling (MLM) and latent growth modeling (LGM), have been developed. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the use of MLM and its advantages in analyzing longitudinal data. Data from a(More)
Axin and p53 are tumor suppressors, controlling cell growth, apoptosis, and development. We show that Axin interacts with homeodomain-interacting protein kinase-2 (HIPK2), which is linked to UV-induced p53-dependent apoptosis by interacting with, and phosphorylating Ser 46 of, p53. In addition to association with p53 via HIPK2, Axin contains a separate(More)
Radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies are poised to revolutionize retail, warehouse, and supply chain management. One of their interesting applications is to automatically detect missing tags in a large storage space, which may have to be performed frequently to catch any missing event such as theft in time. Because RFID systems typically work(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the potential application of contrast material-enhanced three-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography (US), as compared with contrast-enhanced 3D computed tomography (CT), for characterization of focal liver tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval and informed patient consent were obtained. One hundred thirty-nine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the enhancement patterns of focal liver tumors in the late phase of Sonazoid-enhanced ultrasonography by intermittent imaging with a high mechanical index (MI). METHODS A total of 142 patients with 208 lesions, including 109 hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs), 61 metastases, 30 hemangiomas, and 8 focal(More)
PURPOSE To assess the utility of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (ceUS) in the assessment of the therapeutic response to high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation in patients with uterine fibroid. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-four patients with a total of 64 uterine fibroids (mean: 5.3+/-1.2 cm; range: 3.2-8.9 cm) treated with HIFU ablation under(More)
