Diversity and compounding for enhanced discrimination of breast masses in ultrasonic B-scan images
Ultrasonic tissue characterization aims at improving the ability of ultrasound to classify benign and malignant masses. The akagami distribution was recently proposed to model the statistics of the envelope of the backscattered echo from tissue. Its parameters demonstrated an ability to discriminate benign and malignant masses in breast tissue. However, there is a need to improve the performance of the parameters to reach clinically acceptable standards and also to eliminate any influence of var

5.2 The identification topology

Our aim is to show that the object that we produce when we identify some or all the edges of a polygon is a surface. Therefore, by the definition of a surface given in Section 2.5, we must show how it can be given the structure of a topological space, and that this space is Hausdorff. Furthermore, we must show that every point has

9.1 Making sense of complexity

This section is about finding ways of thinking about complex situations – making sense of complexity. This is a process of discovery. It involves thinking about complexity in an orderly way that allows you to enter a deeper understanding of the complexity. It goes beyond immersion in, and representation of, complexity.

The invitation I am making in this section is to move into the possibility of structuring complexity. Notice I am not suggesting there is structure in the

5.7 Emergency planning – the process

Usually, when emergency plans are prepared the hazards already exist, and may have been there for some time. The liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) stores in the middle of many cities are a classic example. They ‘grew’ in the former coal yards adjacent to railways. Their presence may be accepted, whereas a new development with similar hazard potential might give rise to objections.

In the preparation of plans, the phenomenon known as ‘agenda setting’ must be taken into account. This

5.14.2 Reverse osmosis

This technique, explained in Section 3.8.1, is rapidly becoming a major means of desalination, with research producing membranes with lower operating pressures (and hence lower operating costs). Originally a pressure of 14 × 106 Pa was needed to separate pure water from sea water but with newer membranes only half this pressure is required. Reverse osmosis membranes operate at ambient temperature, in contrast to multistage flash distillation, and this lower temperature minimises s
