—Accurately detecting pedestrians in images plays a critically important role in many computer vision applications. Extraction of effective features is the key to this task. Promising features should be discriminative, robust to various variations and easy to compute. In this work, we present novel features, termed dense center-symmetric local binary(More)
Traditional nonlinear manifold learning methods have achieved great success in dimensionality reduction and feature extraction, most of which are batch modes. However, if new samples are observed, the batch methods need to be calculated repeatedly, which is computationally intensive, especially when the number or dimension of the input samples are large.(More)
Detecting pedestrians in images and videos plays a critically important role in many computer vision applications. Extraction of effective features is the key to this task. Promising features should be discriminative, robust to various variations and easy to compute. In this work, we presents a novel feature, termed pyramid center-symmetric local(More)
BACKGROUND USPIO is a contrast agent for MRI that can generate T2W images with low signal intensities. After subcutaneous or intravenous injection of USPIO, normal lymph node tissues uptake these nano-particles, but tumor cells do not. Thus, tumor metastasis can be detected using this contrast agent. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to access the(More)
The mean shift algorithm has achieved considerable success in target tracking due to its simplicity and robustness. However, the lack of spatial information may result in its failure to get high tracking precision. This might be even worse when the target is scale variant and the sequences are gray-levels. This paper presents a novel multiple subtemplates(More)
A new incus-body driving type transducer relying on piezoelectric stack, with broad frequency bandwidth, is proposed for use in a middle ear implant. To aid the design process of this transducer, a coupling biomechanical model of the human middle ear and the piezoelectric transducer was established by reverse engineering technology. The validity of this(More)
Cancer neovascularization is essential for metastasis of thyroid carcinoma. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms are ill-defined. Recently, placental growth factor (PLGF) has been shown to play critical roles in the pathological angiogenesis through regulating matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs); here, we were prompted to examine the role of PLGF in(More)
Lymph node metastasis of rabbit VX2 pyriform sinus carcinoma can be enhanced by MR scanning after injecting ultra-small superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) into the submucosa beside the tumor. The metastasis lymph node which fit in with the diagnostic criteria will be placed into the alternating magnetic field after MR scanning. Then, magnetic particles(More)
