Deformable Models: Biomedical and Clinical Applications (Topics in Biomedical Engineering. International Book Series)
Deformable Models: Biomedical and Clinical Applications is the first entry in the two-volume set which provides a wide cross-section of the methods and algorithms of variational and Partial-Differential Equations (PDE) methods in biomedical image analysis. The chapters of Deformable Models: Biomedical and Clinical Applications are written by the well-known researchers in this field, and the presentation style goes beyond an intricate abstraction of the theory into real application of the methods and description of the algorithms that were implemented. As such these chapters will serve the main goal of the editors of these two volumes in bringing down to earth the latest in variational and PDE methods in modeling of soft tissues.86% (8)
Overall, the chapters in the first volume provide an elegant cross-section of the theory and application of variational and PDE approaches in medical image analysis. This volume introduces, discusses, and provides solutions for problems ranging from structural inversion to models for cardiac segmentation, and other applications in medical image analysis. Graduate students and researchers at various levels of familiarity with these techniques will find the volume very useful for understanding the theory and algorithmic implementations. In addition, the various case studies provided demonstrate the power of these techniques in clinical applications.
Researchers at various levels will find these chapters useful to understand the theory, algorithms, and implementation of many of these approaches.
1951 circa; Old Kilby from the front, an oil painting
I took this photo from a painting. I was concerned that it might get skewed, ie, not square, but it turned out okay. The chief contribution of Governor Kilby and Warden General Feagin was to make it possible for Alabama to modernize its system with an additional prison, Kilby. The new prison became more than a symbol of modernization, however, and it became the basis for reform changes that would occur for decades hence. Feagin designed a massive and thoroughly modern (for then) prison on the Baltimore model and secured the funding for its construction. In 1922, construction was started on Kilby Prison which was named in honor of Governor Kilby. On January 15, 1923, Governor William W. Brandon of Tuscaloosa began his administration. Roy L. Nolen (replacing Feagin) was the head of the Board of Administration's Convict Department and in charge of all matters pertaining to the operation of all state prisons and the activities connected with them. In February, the Legislative Session of 1923 made it unlawful "for any person to lease or let for hire any state convict to any person, firm, or corporation". Not having sufficient housing or staff to accomodate the leased inmates, the BOACD instead leased the mines and prisons from the mining companies, and as a State mine, kept the convicts in the same prison bed and mine. The Legislative Session of 1923 also made provisions for executions to be performed by electrocution at the new prison Kilby. The public and festive hangings of the 1800's had long since disappeared. Instead, the hangings were conducted out of sight of the public on gallows built inside the county jails. This law took this practice from the counties and gave it to the State. The Kilby Prison complex was completed in 1923 at a cost of $2,250,000, which was worth more than the total value of all the other prison properties combined. From the start, Kilby received compliments from all over the United States, and as far away as Europe, as being the most modern and best conducted prison in the nation. Located four miles north of the State Capitol on 2,550 acres, Kilby had a comfortable capacity for 900 convicts. A twenty foot high reinforced concrete wall surrounded 27 acres within which the prison's buildings were located. These buildings were constructed of concrete and steel with a dark red brick veneer. The main building was five stories high with the first floor having individual cells. The other top four floors had cells constructed that could hold up to five prisoners each. All cells had a private toilet and lavatory, were fireproof, and positioned to receive natural light and adequate ventilation. The temperatures in the upper tiers were equalized by forced ventilation through the roof. For bathing, large shower baths accommodated over 50 convicts at a time with hot and cold water provided. The kitchen and dining room had state of the art equipment which permitted economically well prepared meals three times a day. Medical care was provided by a hundred bed hospital and a dental parlor that was also thoroughly equipped. School rooms and a library were provided for the prisoner's educational programs. For the administration, ample offices were provided for the accounting department, the bureau of identification that used Bertillion system, spacious waiting rooms, and private offices for the officials. A power plant and laundry was also built. Also inside the walls was the Kilby Cotton Mill and Kilby Shirt Factory. The 10,000 spindle mill employed 225 convicts in the production of 105,000 yards per week of the highest grade chambray cloth. The Kilby Cotton Mill opened on April 9th and began production on July 1, 1923. The mill was fireproof and used the latest designed machinery and equipment. Two thirds of the chambray produced was used by the Kilby Shirt Factory which employed 350 convicts in the manufacture of 12,000 blue work shirts per month. The remaining one third of the chambray was sold on the open market. Kilby also had a modern and sanitary 100 cow dairy that used only purebred cows in the production of milk and butter. A large portion of the surrounding land was devoted to pastures for the dairy and beef cattle. About 1,500 acres was devoted to garden and farm crops to grow food for the convicts, the cattle, purebred swine, and to produce a surplus of cotton for the open market. Two railroads and three highways passed through Kilby's property. Across a highway [US 231, Wetumpka-Montgomery] in front of the main building, in a beautiful oak grove, 30 homes were built for the officials and employees. Within this community center was also a hotel for the single employees. This prison village also had a "Community House" for the sole use of the employees and their families. Kilby Prison became the receiving and distribution point for convicts entering or moving among the prisons, a function that Wetumpka Prison had previously performed.
