Run-length coding has attracted much attention in wavelet-based image compression because of its simplicity and potentially low complexity. The main drawback is the inferior RD-performance compared to the state-of-the-art-coder SPIHT. In this paper, we concentrate on the embedded progressive run-length code of Tian and Wells (1996, 1998). We consider(More)
Although recently survival of some medulloblastoma patients increased remarkably, it remains a serious diagnosis in others. In order to predict the postoperative prognosis in patients treated for medulloblastoma, a new staging, scoring and grading system was developed. Sixty-six patients operated on microsurgically between 1975 and 1990 at a single(More)
– A multiscale detection and characterization of edges in images is presented. The method is based on ideas involving scale-space filtering in the field of human vision, and on more recent developments in the theory of wavelets, singular functions and the analysis of fractal time series. Edges and their properties on all scales of observation are looked(More)
An analysis of spatial context conditioning and run-length coding in embedded progressive, wavelet-based image coding is presented. The analysis shows that run-length coding of certain context subsequences is superior to pure entropy coding, both in terms of coding performance and of execution speed. Based on these considerations, a novel, intuitive context(More)
Preoperative risk assessment for image based surgery planning often requires considerable technical and personnel resources especially for certain complex interventions, such as liversurgery.The purpose of the project SIMPL wastoestablish aremote service for specialized tasks in medical image analysis and the visualization of results. In this context we(More)
Collins' law, known as period of risk for recurrence (PRR), has been discussed as a reliable scheme for the prediction of recurrence or cure of embryonal tumours including medulloblastomas. The PRR is defined as the age at diagnosis plus 9 months of gestation. According to Collins' law, a patient who has no clinical evidence of recurrence within this time(More)
Although primary treatment of medulloblastoma is now successful in a high percentage of patients, its secondary manifestations still bear a poor prognosis. Thorough studies of secondary manifestations are therefore pivotal to plan therapeutic approaches for the long-term management of medulloblastoma. Here we describe the incidence of secondary tumour(More)
