This paper presents an approach for human action recognition by finding the discriminative key frames from a video sequence and representing them with the distribution of local motion features and their spatiotemporal arrangements. In this approach, the key frames of the video sequence are selected by their discriminative power and represented by the local(More)
This paper presents an approach for human activity recognition by representing the frames of the video sequence with the distribution of local motion features and their spatiotemporal arrangements. In this approach, the local motion features used for the representation of a frame are integrated from the ones detected in this frame and its temporal(More)
In an object recognition task where an image is represented as a constellation of image patches, often many patches correspond to the cluttered background. If such patches are used for object class recognition, they will adversely affect the recognition rate. In this paper, we present a two stage method for selecting image patches which characterize the(More)
In object recognition tasks, where images are represented as constellations of image patches, often many patches correspond to the cluttered background. In this paper, we present a two-stage method for selecting the image patches which characterize the target object class and are capable of discriminating between the positive images containing the target(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSES This study compared VMAT and IMRT plans for intact breast radiotherapy for left sided breast cancer and evaluated the irradiated dose of planning target volume and OARs, especially focusing on heart and coronary artery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven patients with left sided breast cancer whose breast was relatively smaller (the mean(More)
This paper presents a spatiotemporal pyramid representation for recognizing facial expressions and hand gestures. This approach works by partitioning video sequence into increasingly fine subdivisions in the space and time domains and modeling the distribution of the local motion features inside each subdivision such that the set of motion features are(More)
In an object recognition task where an image is represented as a constellation of image patches, often many patches correspond to the cluttered background. If such patches are used for object class recognition, they will adversely affect the recognition rate. In this paper, we present a statistical method for selecting the image patches which characterize(More)
Remediation of soils contaminated with petroleum is a challenging task. Four different bioremediation strategies, including natural attenuation, biochar amendment, phytoremediation with ryegrass, and a combination of biochar and ryegrass, were investigated with greenhouse pot experiments over a 90-day period. The results showed that planting ryegrass in(More)
PURPOSE To report the treatment effect of image-guided high-dose-rate (HDR) interstitial brachytherapy for refractory recurrence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). CASE REPORT This 66-year-old female presented with recurrence 5 years after thyroidectomy for PTC. Despite external irradiation and radioactive (131)I, the lesion expanded as 3.7 × 3.0 × 2.3(More)
