A clamp or grip for heavy duty work with twisted wire cables and the like, such as in marine and industrial uses and especially where reasonably easy application of the cable grip to the cable is important and undue bending moments on the heavy cables are to be avoided. The feature of a removable jaw is coupled with dual link bar structure for the jaws without sacrificing strength and with a considerable reduction in overall weight of the clamp as compared to presently available equipment, this… Expand

Topics from this paper

Automatic pectoral muscle segmentation on mediolateral oblique view mammograms
A new, adaptive algorithm is proposed to automatically extract the pectoral muscle on digitized mammograms; it uses knowledge about the position and shape of the pectorals on mediolateral oblique views to identify and segment out the pECToral muscle. Expand
Automatic pectoral muscle segmentation on mammograms by straight line estimation and cliff detection
The rationale and algorithms for fully automatic, two-part segmentation of the pectoral muscle are presented and the algorithm consists of estimation of the muscle edge by a straight line and refinement of the detected edge by surface smoothing and edge detection in a restricted neighbourhood derived from the first estimate. Expand
Automatic elimination of the pectoral muscle in mammograms based on anatomical features
The novel methodology consists of a process to remove the noisy elements such as labels, markers, scratches and wedges, and application of an intensity transformation based on the Beta distribution and shows a very good performance. Expand
Pectoral Muscle removal and Detection of masses in Digital Mammogram using CCL
This paper proposes a computer aided diagnosis system for detecting masses in mammograms using connected component labeling (CCL) and addresses the problem of eliminating and pectoral muscles from the mammogram before the detection process so that further processing is confined to the breast region alone. Expand
A Novel Approach for Removal of pectoral muscles in Digital Mammogram
This work combines Robust Outlyingness Ratio (ROR) mechanism with extended NL-Means (ROR-NLM) filter based on Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) for the detection and removal of noise. Expand
Automatic assessment of mammographic positioning on the mediolateral oblique view
Several quality criteria, including breast tissue exclusion, nipple in profile, inclusion of inframammary fold, and positioning of the pectoral muscle, were used to assess the adequacy of breast positioning on mediolateral oblique view mammograms. Expand
Detection of architectural distortion from the ridges in a digitized mammogram
It is hypothesized that radiating ridges are an indicator of an AD site and features derived from the ridges have been utilized in a radial basis function support vector machine to classify regions as containing or not containing AD. Expand
An atlas based approach to segmenting MLO view mammograms
A two step procedure consisting of feature based registration followed by Demon's implementation of deformable registration is suggested for segmenting mediolateral oblique view mammograms to achieve more accurate and reliable segmentation. Expand
Automatic Classification of Linear Structures in Mammographic Images
It is shown that useful discrimination between anatomical classes is achieved in x-ray mammograms, and methods of classifying the detected structures into anatomical classes from their cross-sectional profiles are investigated. Expand
Auto-Identification of Pectoral Muscle Region in Digital Mammogram Images
This paper represents a new automated technique for segmenting a digital mammogram image and identifies the region of pectoral muscle by using a bit depth and edge processes techniques. Expand
