Error resiliency transcoding and decoding solutions using distributed video coding techniques
This paper proposes a number of video transcoding techniques for the purpose of adding error resiliency. The proposed solutions make use of distributed video coding technologies which were originally reported in the ...
Ultrasonic-Activated Micellar Drug Delivery for Cancer Treatment
(Wiley InterSciences, 2008)
The use of nanoparticles and ultrasound in medicine continues to evolve. Great strides have been made in the areas of producing micelles, nanoemulsions, and solid nanoparticles that can be used in drug delivery. An effective ...
Release of Doxorubicin from Unstabilized and Stabilized Micelles Under the Action of Ultrasound
(American Scientific Publishers, 2007)
Polymeric micelles are being investigated as chemotherapy drug delivery carriers using ultrasound as a trigger mechanism. The aim of this paper is to measure the release of Doxorubicin (Dox) from the core of unstabilized ...
Rapid and convenient method for preparing masters for microcontact printing with 1–12 mm features
(American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2004)
Mechanical scribing can be employed to create surfaces with recessed features. Through replica molding elastomeric copies of these scribed surfaces are created that function as stamps for microcontact printing. It is shown ...
Spatio-Temporal Feature-Extraction Techniques for Isolated Gesture Recognition in Arabic Sign Language
This paper presents various spatio-temporal feature-extraction techniques with applications to online and offline recognitions of isolated Arabic Sign Language gestures. The temporal features of a video-based gesture are ...
Alkyl Monolayers on Silica Surfaces Prepared Using Neat, Heated Dimethylmonochlorosilanes with Low Vapor Pressures
(American Chemical Society, 2003)
The role of cavitation in acoustically activated drug delivery
(Elsevier Science Direct, 2005)
Pluronic P105 micelles are potential candidates as chemotherapy drug delivery vehicles using ultrasonic stimulation as a release trigger. Acoustic power has been previously shown to release two anthracycline agents from ...
Alkyl Monolayers on Silica Surfaces Prepared from Neat, Heated (Tridecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrooctyl)-1- dimethylchlorosilane Analyzed by XPS
(American Vacuum Society, 2004)
Silane monolayers on silica, prepared from mono-, di-, and trichlorosilanes, are widely used in industry for surface functionalization and modification. However, unlike di- and trichlorosilanes, monochlorosilanes are ...
Analysis of 7,13-Bis((8-hydroxy-2-quinolinyl)methyl)-1,4-dimethyl-1,4,7,13-tetraaza-10-thiacyclopentadecane by XPS
(American Vacuum Society, 2004)
Highly toxic metals abound in the environment as a result of pollution. Macrocyclic ligands have been designed that are selective in binding certain toxic metals. This allows for a sensitive means of detecting these poisonous ...
Syntax friendly and syntax amendment approaches to error resiliency in the MPEG-4 Simple Scalable Profile
This work discusses two approaches to incorporating error resiliency in the Simple Scalable Profile SSP of the ISO/IEC MPEG-4 14496-2 visual standard. As such scalable MPEG-4 is made suitable for deployment in a mobile ...
