In this work, we develop novel disk characterization suite, DIG (disk geometry analyzer), which allows us to rapidly extract and to characterize the key performance metric of modern hard disk drive. Development of this tool is accompanied by thorough examination of four off-the-shelf hard disk drives. DIG consists of three key ingredients: O(1) track(More)
We report an example of subarachnoid neurocysticercosis located in the left cerebellopontine cistern of a 60 year-old man. The negative results of the serum and cerebrospinal fluid tests for parasites and the unusual MRI findings, such as the uncommon shape, location and extension pattern, made differential diagnosis difficult. Neurocysticercosis was(More)
 Background. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of preoperative three dimensional short-range magnetic resonance angiography (3D-TOF MRA) in predicting the clinical outcomes following microvascular decompression for the treatment of hemifacial spasm.  Method. Preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was performed on all patients(More)
 The authors report a case of an unusual progression of glioblastoma multiforme in the temporal lobe associated with the first onset of nonconvulsive simple partial status epilepticus (SPSE), a rare form of status epilepticus. The patient underwent a left temporal craniotomy and the tumor was removed. Concurrently, the hippocampus was removed as well. The(More)
¶A 60 year-old female presented with a non-specific headache that she had experienced for 4 years. A simple skull X-ray indicated a well-defined, lobulated and radiolucent lesion with a thin sclerotic rim involving the parietal bone (Fig. 1A). Computed tomography revealed a hypodense lesion. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 2 cm-sized cystic lesion in(More)
 A novel type of bioreactor was successfully developed for the production of taxol and its precursors by culturing cells of Taxus cuspidata (Japanese yew) on a pilot-scale. Rapidly growing cell lines were selected from callus cultures derived from immature embryos of yew. The cells were inoculated in 20-l capacity bioreactors of different types to test the(More)
Background We evaluated the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and safety of sunitinib plus capecitabine/cisplatin (XP) or capecitabine/oxaliplatin (XELOX) in Korean patients with advanced gastric cancer (GC). Methods Sunitinib (37.5 or 25 mg/day) was administered on a 2-week-on/1-week-off schedule with chemotherapy. Assessments included dose-limiting toxicity(More)
