When indexing large text collections minimizing the indexing time and the disk storage used to create an index remains important. Indexing optimizations applied to a prototype retrieval system at NIST are discussed in this paper. These include the organization of the index, the use of virtual memory facilities to improve indexing time, an index addressing(More)
Several dipeptide analogs containing an acyclic teritary amide group are effective angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors with I50 values comparable to those of the best natural dipeptide inhibitors (e.g. Val-Trp). The most potent inhibitors studied feature a p-tolyl or norbornyl substituent on the amide nitrogen atom and a methyl or butylamino(More)
Utilizing a disposable unit, intraoperative autotranfusion was employed during surgery in 53 patients admitted to the Bexar County Teaching Hospital at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. During the two-year period of study, 26 patients underwent surgery for major traumatic injuries, 8 for ruptured ectopic pregnancy and 19 for(More)
The difficulty of the medical diagnostic task and the advantages of the computer as an aid in this task are discussed. The general strategy and structure of any computer-aided system is presented, and the relationship of diagnostic accuracy to key variables involved in the development, test and use of a computer-aided diagnostic system is examined. These(More)
Many biometric methods are closely connected with methods of pattern recognition and image analysis. The realization of a number of biometric technologies requires using the last achievements in this area. Some elements of technology based on some methods of image analysis are demonstrated by the example of iris person identification. From a position of(More)
This report describes the correlation of pathological findings with transvaginal color Doppler sonography performed preoperatively on 26 ovarian masses. The pulsatility indices of benign lesions (1.9 +/- 0.7) were higher than those of malignant ones (0.7 +/- 0.2) (p = 0.03). Low pulsatility indices (< 1.0) were found in three relatively vascular benign(More)
