We investigated carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and quantitative carotid stiffness (QCS) index in relation to plasma glycosylated hemoglobin A(1C) (HbA(1C)) and duration of diabetes mellitus in 337 Chinese diabetic patients. In categorical analyses, carotid IMT was 710 mum in subjects with a duration of diabetes mellitus < or = 2 years, 760 micorm in(More)
Microalbuminuria is associated with higher cardiovascular mortality, especially in diabetics. But the direct association between microalbuminuria and vascular wall properties is still not clear. We investigated quantitative carotid stiffness (QCS) index in relation to microalbuminuria in 260 Chinese diabetic patients. In categorical analyses, patients with(More)
This paper proposes a new method for mobile robots to recognize places with the use of a single camera and natural landmarks. In the learning stage, the robot is manually guided along a path. Video sequences are captured with a front‐facing camera. To reduce the perceptual alias of visual features, which are easily confused, we propose a modified visual(More)
