Action: changed description from "PURPOSE:\r\nThis study evaluates the effectiveness of a single-dose dexamethasone implant (DI) as an auxiliary therapy to continued intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) treatment in patients with persistent diabetic macular edema (DME).\r\nMETHODS:\r\nTwenty-five pseudophakic eyes of 25 patients with DME who underwent a single injection of DI as an adjuvant therapy following an IVR loading dose were examined retrospectively. All patients were treatment naive and had a poor response to a loading dose of three consecutive monthly IVR injections. IVR treatments were continued pro re nata after the DI. The main outcome measures were changes in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central macular thickness (CMT) at 1, 3, 6 and 8 months post-DI treatment.\r\nRESULTS:\r\nAfter the IVR loading dose, the mean BCVA and CMT were 0.9 ± 0.6 LogMAR and 478.2 ± 107.8 µm, respectively. One month after the DI, the mean BCVA and CMT had improved to 0.6 ± 0.4 LogMAR (p = 0.005) and 313.8 ± 62.7 µm (p < 0.001), respectively. This improvement was maintained with mean 0.8 ± 0.8 IVR injections throughout the follow-up period. The final mean BCVA and CMT were 0.5 ± 0.5 LogMAR and 298.4 ± 71.5 µm. Subgroup analyses revealed that different DME types did not have any effect on CMT or BCVA improvement (p = 0.188, p = 0.136; respectively).\r\nCONCLUSION:\r\nAdding DI results in rapid anatomical and visual improvement in patients who respond poorly to an IVR loading dose. Improvements may be maintained with additional IVR in follow-up.\r\nKEYWORDS:\r\nAdjuvant therapy; Dexamethasone; Diabetic macular edema" to "", changed markeddown_description from "<p>PURPOSE:\nThis study evaluates the effectiveness of a single-dose dexamethasone implant (DI) as an auxiliary therapy to continued intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) treatment in patients with persistent diabetic macular edema (DME).\nMETHODS:\nTwenty-five pseudophakic eyes of 25 patients with DME who underwent a single injection of DI as an adjuvant therapy following an IVR loading dose were examined retrospectively.

2019-02-15 09:29 -0600 dogancan Story: A Metastatic Tumor of Ewing’s Sarcoma in the Orbit
Action: changed description from "Abstract\r\nCase: A 16-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic in June 2017 with a complaint of swelling in the right eye for 2 days. In the examination, the best corrected vision acuity (BCVA) was 0,8 for the right eye and 0,9 for the left eye by Snellen. Right periobital edema, proptosis and ptosis were present, and the eye movements were restricted in all directions (Figure 1). There was a chemosis in the right eye in the slit lamp examination and a slight deletion of the nasal borders of the bilateral optic disc in the fundus examination. When the story of the patient was questioned, we learned that he was treated with a diagnosis of Ewing’s sarcoma in the left fibula 1 year ago and was diagnosed as urgent because of a metastatic tumor causes the medulla spinalis compression which was found in the lumbar region 1 week before. The massive lesion on the posterior wall of the right orbit was detected in the orbital tomography, which made us think metastasis of the Ewing’s sarcoma primarily for the differential diagnosis and the patient was directed to the Department of Pediatric Oncology (Figure 2). Upon observation of multiple bone involvement in the Positron Emission Tomography, the patient was initiated a 5-day Iphosphamide + Carboplastin + Etoposide systemic chemotherapy protocol. On day 2, a dramatic regression was observed in the patient’s symptoms. At 1-week follow-up, the BCVA was bilateral 1.0, the eye movements were normal in all directions, the slit-lamp and fundus findings and the intraocular pressure were normal (Figure 3).\r\nConclusion: In conclusion, in this case it is emphasized that orbital metastases should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with proptosis and periorbital edema and also it is important to question the story of the patient detailed so it’s possible to prevent the development of permanent pathologies if treatment is started rapidly." to "", changed markeddown_description from "<p>Abstract\nCase: A 16-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic in June 2017 with a complaint of swelling in the right eye for 2 days.

2018-09-19 13:18 -0500 dogancan Story: A single-chip CMOS transceiver for 802.11a/b/g wireless LANs
Action: changed description from "A dual-band trimode radio fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11a, b, and g standards is implemented in a 0.18-/spl mu/m CMOS process and packaged in a 48-pin QFN package. The transceiver achieves a receiver noise figure of 4.9/5.6 dB for the 2.4-GHz/5-GHz bands, respectively, and a transmit error vector magnitude (EVM) of 2.5% for both bands. The transmit output power is digitally controlled, allowing per-packet power control as required by the forthcoming 802.11 h standard. A quadrature accuracy of 0.3/spl deg/ in phase and 0.05 dB in amplitude is achieved through careful analysis and design of the I/Q generation parts of the local oscillator. The local oscillators achieve a total integrated phase noise of better than -34 dBc. Compatibility with multiple baseband chips is ensured by flexible interfaces toward the A/D and D/A converters, as well as a calibration scheme not requiring any baseband support. The chip passes /spl plusmn/2 kV human body model ESD testing on all pins, including the RF pins. The total die area is 12 mm/sup 2/. The power consumption is 207 mW in the receive mode and 247 mW in the transmit mode using a 1.8-V supply." to "", changed markeddown_description from "<p>A dual-band trimode radio fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11a, b, and g standards is implemented in a 0.18-/spl mu/m CMOS process and packaged in a 48-pin QFN package.

Action: changed description from "ADORESeT (http://adoreset.itu.edu.tr/) is composed of colored images, which has 30 classes with the dimension of 300x300 pixels. Each class has 2500 real-world images acquired from wild web and 750 synthetic images that are generated within Gazebo Simulation Environment (GSE). All images are stored in JPEG format. There are 97500 images that take up about 1.8 GB space in the hard drive which makes it simpler to achieve than ImageNet (1.2 million images for 1000 classes) and MS COCO (300.000 images for 80 classes). Although, our dataset has less total images than these two datasets, it includes more labeled instances per category.\r\n\r\nThis hybrid dataset enables researchers to implement their algorithms both for real-world and simulation environment conditions. Our hybrid dataset is fully-annotated and the limits of objects are manually specified and bounding box coordinates are provided. Successor objects are also labeled to give statistical information about the relations of the objects within dataset. For example, the relation between monitor, keyboard and mouse can be directly obtained using this useful information. ADORESet should be of interest to field of robotics researchers by means of its hybrid form, compactness in terms of lightweight and relevancy to robotics applications such as detection and recognition, grasping and dexterous manipulation of objects." to "ADORESeT (http://adoreset.itu.edu.tr/) is composed of colored images, which has 30 classes with the dimension of 300x300 pixels.", changed markeddown_description from "<p>ADORESeT (<a href=\"http://adoreset.itu.edu.tr/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://adoreset.itu.edu.tr/</a>) is composed of colored images, which has 30 classes with the dimension of 300x300 pixels.
