As the medical images contain both superficial and imperceptible patterns, textures are successfully used as discriminant features for the detection of cancers, tumors, etc. NEW
Our algorithm selects the specific image blocks and computes the textures using the following steps: At first, the center image slice of the axes (sagittal, coronal and axial) is divided into small blocks and those which approximately resembles the regions of interest are marked. Then, all the marked blocks which are in the same location as in the center slice are collected from all the other slices, and the textures are computed per block on all the individual slices. The generated textures are then pipelined to a feature selection algorithm with bootstrapping to pick-out features of high relevance and less redundancy and are exhaustively analyzed with multiple feature selection techniques like fisher score, elastic net, recursive feature elimination and classification algorithms like random forest, linear support vector machines, and k-nearest-neighbors algorithms.

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.
The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.
