In ultrasonic imaging systems, the patterns of detected echoes correspond to the shape, size, and orientation of the reflectors and the physical properties of the propagation path. However, these echoes often are overlapped due to closely spaced reflectors and/or microstructure scattering. The decomposition of these echoes is a major and challenging(More)
—This letter presents a fast chirplet transform (FCT) algorithm, a computationally efficient method, for decomposing highly convoluted signals into a linear expansion of chirplets. The FCT algorithm successively estimates the chirplet parameters in order to represent a broad range of chirplet shapes, including the broadband, narrowband, symmetric, skewed,(More)
Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), glutathione peroxidase-1 (GPX1), and catalase (CAT) provide the primary antioxidant defense system. Impaired antioxidant defense increases oxidative stress and contributes to the development of type 2 diabetes and diabetic cardiovascular disease (CVD). We preformed a case–control study in Chinese type 2 diabetes(More)
BACKGROUND The acetabular teardrop is often used to guide acetabular component placement in total hip arthroplasty (THA). Placing the lower acetabular component aspect at the same level as the lower teardrop edge was assumed to restore the hip center of rotation. Here we radiographically analyzed the relationship between cup center and normal contralateral(More)
