In order to utilize both ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT) images of the liver concurrently for medical applications such as diagnosis and image-guided intervention, non-rigid registration between these two types of images is an essential step, as local deformation between US and CT images exists due to the different respiratory phases involved(More)
The registration of a three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound (US) image with a computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance image is beneficial in various clinical applications such as diagnosis and image-guided intervention of the liver. However, conventional methods usually require a time-consuming and inconvenient manual process for pre-alignment, and the(More)
ZnO, a wide bandgap semiconductor, has attracted much attention due to its multifunctionality, such as transparent conducting oxide, light-emitting diode, photocatalyst, and so on. To improve its performances in the versatile applications, numerous hybrid strategies of ZnO with graphene have been attempted, and various synergistic effects have been achieved(More)
One of the limits of PET imaging is the low spatial resolution due to a predetermined detector width. To overcome this limit, we may increase the number of samples by using the wobbling motion. Since the line spread function (LSF) of the sinogram is determined by the detector width, however, the increase of the number of samples is not sufficient to improve(More)
Spatial resolution is intrinsically limited in positron emission tomography (PET) systems, mainly due to the crystal width. To increase the spatial resolution for a given crystal width, mechanical movements such as wobble and dichotomic motions are introduced to the PET systems. However, multiple sinograms obtained through such movements provide oversampled(More)
— Recently, various deep-neural-network (DNN)-based approaches have been proposed for single-image super-resolution (SISR). Despite their promising results on major structure regions such as edges and lines, they still suffer from limited performance on texture regions that consist of very complex and fine patterns. This is because, during the acquisition(More)
We report synergistically enhanced thermoelectric properties through the independently controlled charge and thermal transport properties in a TiO2-reduced graphene oxide (RGO) nanocomposite. By the consolidation of TiO2-RGO hybrid powder using spark plasma sintering, we prepared an interface-controlled TiO2-RGO nanocomposite where its grain boundaries are(More)
