Ultrasound image enhancement: A review
Medical ultrasound imaging uses pulsed acoustic waves that are transmitted and received by a hand-held transducer. This is a mature technology that it is widely used around the world. Among its advantages are that it is ...
ISeeU: Visually interpretable deep learning for mortality prediction inside the ICU
(Academic Press Inc., 2019)
To improve the performance of Intensive Care Units (ICUs), the field of bio-statistics has developed scores which try to predict the likelihood of negative outcomes. These help evaluate the effectiveness of treatments and ...
Umbilical cord and preeclampsia
(IOS Press, 2016)
Preeclampsia is associated with abnormalities in the umbilical cord in several ways: morphological, biochemical and functional. Alteration in blood vessels of the placenta, decidua and circulatory system of the fetus might ...
Restoration of retinal images with space-variant blur
Retinal images are essential clinical resources for the diagnosis of retinopathy and many other ocular diseases. Because of improper acquisition conditions or inherent optical aberrations in the eye, the images are often ...
Reply to: Effectiveness of a visual noise warning system on noise levels in a surgical ICU
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2020)
Role of VEGF in the differential growth between the fetal and placental ends of the umbilical cord
(IOS Press, 2019)
INTRODUCTION: The umbilical cord (UC) is a vital structure; its alterations affect the newborn and neurological impact can be permanent. Paradoxically, factors that determine it remain unknown. We explore the differential ...

Ecotoxicological assessment of perchlorate using in vitro and in vivo assays
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
Perchlorate is an inorganic ion widespread in the environment, generated as a natural and anthropogenic pollutant, with known endocrine disruption properties in the thyroid gland. Nonetheless, there are few reports of its ...
Towards better BBB passage prediction using an extensive and curated data set
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2015)
In the present report, the challenging task of drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is addressed via a computational approach. The BBB passage was modeled using classification and regression schemes on a novel ...
Effectiveness of a visual noise warning system on noise levels in a surgical ICU: A quality improvement programme
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2019)
BACKGROUNDThe effects of noise are harmful to patients in the ICU environment, and the latter are particularly noisy places. High noise levels seem to be a factor in sleep disturbance, which can, in turn, result in increased ...
