Open Journal of Medical Imaging (OJMI) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojmi.2014.43020
Abstract: Introduction: The purposes were to clarify the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of malignant ovarian lesions arising from endometriomas, and to compare the lesions’ histopathology and MRI characteristics. Materials and Methods: Between May 2004 and December 2012, 140 patients, all of whom were diagnosed as having an endometrioma by using MR imaging, underwent surgery. We compared the MR characteristics including size and signal intensity of the tumor and mural nodules, the thickness of the septum, and the thickness of the wall with the pathological diagnoses. The attached angles of the mural nodules to the cyst wall were also evaluated. Results: Among the 179 lesions, preoperative MR imaging diagnosed 153 benign and 26 malignant. Based on the pathological results, 169 were diagnosed as benign and 10 were diagnosed as malignant. Finally, preoperative MR imaging correctly diagnosed 152 benign (group 1) and nine malignant (group 2), misdiagnosed 17 benign as malignant (group 3) and misdiagnosed one malignant as benign (group 4). As for mural nodules, there was a significant difference between groups 1 and 2 in the mean maximum diameter of the mural nodules. An acute attached angle was shown in 1 of 7 in group 1, in 11 of 16 in group 2, and in 14 of 22 in group 3. We also compared benign group with malignant group on the final pathological findings. As for mural nodules, there was a significant difference between groups 1 + 3 and group 2 in the mean maximum diameter of the mural nodules. On dynamic study, there were 22 enhanced mural nodules (75.9%) on group 1 + 3. Conclusion: Most of endometriomas preoperatively diagnosed as benign were pathological benign lesions. Endometriomas that contain many enhanced mural nodules with papillary shape, larger size, showing hypointense on T1WI, hyperintense on T2WI and showing an acute attached angle may have malignant potential.

Abstract: This paper presents the research and the t results of FTIR analyses on samples of immobile paintings on the wooden walls, taken from the Church Saint Paraschiva from the Village of Poienile Izei, county of Maramure ,Romania, a UNESCO World Heritage List monument. These analyses were meant to certify the type and origin of the materials used in the grounding and paint layers of the late 18th c. pictures inside this wooden church. The results obtained, revealed us that other materials had been used than expected. Results also can help in the future conservation-restoration intervention, especially in cleaning and retouching.
Guacamaya: símbolo de temporalidad y fertilidad en dos ejemplos de pintura mural
Navarijo Ornelas, María de Lourdes;
Estudios de cultura maya , 2012,
Abstract: in pre-hispanic thought, macaw (ara macao and ara militaris) occupy a place of honour, as witness its image captured in the murals created by different peoples, such as the maya, the zapotec, the ancient inhabitants of teotihuacan and cacaxtla. this is not a coincidence, which is why this study aims to analyze and recognize the taxonomic identity of recreated individuals, as well as argue their presence in the pictorial language as a mean of irrefutable graphic expression. to this end works with mural paintings from two archaeological sites are analyzed: the mural 1 "the birds" of the 86 structure at xelhá, located in the northern part of quintana roo, and the wall east of the red temple in cacaxtla, tlaxcala, are studied. according to the modalities of graphic representation and under the criteria of thematic integration addresses the reading of the scenes taking into acount other iconographic elements that make them up. the result is a proposal for a token participation of the macaws on the abstraction of time from the daily and seasonal behavior of this kind of noisy psitacid and suggestive and striking plumage and its association with the concept of life, movement and temporality, in addition to its association with the sun and water as the primary element linked to fertility.

Extraction and Analysis of Mural Diseases Information Based on Digital Orthophoto Map
Miao-le Hou,Song Tian
International Journal of Image, Graphics and Signal Processing , 2010,
Abstract: currently, edge detection is an effective means of collecting and analyzing various diseases information from mural collections by using this and data mining based on digital orthophoto map (DOM). But it is hard to extract better edges of mural diseases with traditional edge detection algorithms. Therefore, a new K-means Sobel algorithm is proposed and two evaluation factors are given to judge the extracting effect. Experiment results demonstrate that we can get a better effect by using new method than traditional algorithms. At last, vectorizing detected results, we can gain diseases areas. On that basis, a decision tree about mural diseases severities is established to provide useful information for mural diseases investigation and repair.

International Journal of Conservation Science , 2013,
Abstract: The scientific approach to conservation and monitoring of mural paintings executed in a historic house with an eclectic style of the twentieth century, located in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, is an example of interdisciplinary collaboration between conservators, historians, and scientists in planning and development actions for preventive maintenance as well as interventions of restoration. The mural paintings are recognized worldwide as an architectural element and property, which records the representations of the cultural landscape of an age. In this context, the painting technique found in this house and its state of conservation were investigated by evaluation of pigmented surfaces and then by optical and spectroscopic (IR and EDX) techniques. These results were crucial for the record of the characteristic painting present in this building, showing a period marked by intense urban renewal in Brazilian cities.

Abstract: Mughals are not required to any introduction. Their glory, living style, beautiful architecture with its unique decoration is known to all. Babur was the founder of Mughal dynasty. They made very attractive architecture in India. The architectural decorations reflect the taste, interest, living- standard style and customs of Mughals. These monuments are world famous for its beautiful wall decoration. The contemporary mural decoration has its roots in Mughal art. Inlay, painting and stucco decoration in Mughal era has a unique place in this content. Not only Indians but many foreigners are also impressed from this art. In present time this art has been used on the fa?ade of modern architecture. Before Mughals, Indian architecture was colourless. This contribution goes to the Mughals who brought new techniques with beautiful colours in India. This paper is an attempt to find cultural and aesthetic values for using different techniques and motifs for wall decoration in contemporary period. The objective of the study is to have a better understanding of the influence of Mughal art culture on career, employment, livelihood and social innovation. Apart from the above objectives, this paper tries to find out the answer of several questions, like why do foreign delegates are attracted towards Mughal art and culture. Why do different hotels and restaurants want to resemble with Mughal art What is the social function of artistic and cultural creativity On the whole this paper is based on Mural decoration during Mughal era. By the end of this paper it will be clear that what type of mural decoration was used in Mughal era, its history, style, aesthetic pleasure, importance and impact on contemporary art and architecture. The study concludes that the mural decoration in present time has its root from Mughal (Persia).

San Adrián de Moneixas. Evolución de la iglesia y estudio de su singular pintura mural
del Castillo Fondevila, Ma Estghr
Cuadernos de Estudios Gallegos , 2007,
Abstract: The church of Saint Adrian of Moneixas (Lalín – Pontevedra) was originally a Romanic factory dated about 1170. From that time, it only keeps the arch leading to the High Chapel and the columns on which the arch rests. The columns end in decorated capitals. Between the second and third quarter of the eighteenth century the church suffered several reparations, and it was provided with a sacristy, a window in the apse, two new chapels, the main altarpiece and other three retables and the bell gable -all of them in baroque style. In 1960 the church is completely transformed - a Sanctuary-Chapel was built as if it was a second nave, and it was dedicated to the Third Carmelite Order. Inside the wall of the apse epistle and because of some works, there appeared an original mural painting, unknown up to now. We think that it can be dated as belonging to the late fifteenth century or very early in the sixteenth. It represents the Flagellation of Christ, with the particularity that it follows an unusual pattern in Spain taken from the Speculum Humanae Salvationis, in which Christ appears tied to a palm tree while two men belonging to the brotherhood of the “executioners” “sayones” are whipping him. La iglesia de San Adrián de Moneixas (Lalín- Pontevedra) de fábrica románica en origen con fecha próxima a 1170, conserva de aquel momento poco más que el arco de acceso a la capilla mayor y las columnas sobre las que descansa, rematadas por capiteles decorados. Muy reformada en el segundo y tercer cuarto del siglo XVIII, la dotan de una sacristía, una ventana en el ábside, dos nuevas capillas, el retablo mayor, otros tres retablos y la espada a, todo ello de factura barroca. En 1960 una gran transformación la desfigura completamente, ya que construyen una Capilla- Santuario a modo de segunda nave, dedicada a la Tercera Orden Carmelitana. En el interior del muro de la Epístola del ábside, apareció con motivo de unas obras, una original pintura mural, inédita hasta ahora. Creemos puede datarse a fines del XV o muy principios del XVI. Representa la Flagelación, con la particularidad de seguir un modelo poco habitual en Espa a, tomado del Speculum Humanae Salvationis, en el que Cristo aparece atado a una palmera mientras dos sayones lo azotan.
Guacamaya: símbolo de temporalidad y fertilidad en dos ejemplos de pintura mural The Macaw: a Symbol of Temporality and Fertility in Two Examples from Mural Painting
María de Lourdes Navarijo Ornelas
Estudios de cultura maya , 2012,
Abstract: En el pensamiento prehispánico, la guacamaya (Ara macao y Ara militaris) ocupó un lugar preferente, como lo atestigua su imagen plasmada en los murales creados por diferentes pueblos, como el maya, el zapoteca, el teotihuacano, o como se ve en Cacaxtla. Esto no es una coincidencia, por lo que este estudio tiene por objeto analizar y reconocer la identidad taxonómica de los individuos recreados, además de argumentar su presencia en el lenguaje pictórico como un medio de expresión gráfica irrefutable. Para este fin se trabaja con la pintura mural de dos sitios arqueológicos: el mural 1, Los pájaros, de la Estructura 86 en Xelhá, situado en la zona norte de Quintana Roo; y el mural oriente del Templo Rojo en Cacaxtla, Tlaxcala. De acuerdo con las modalidades de representación gráfica y bajo los criterios de integración temática se aborda la lectura de las escenas considerando a los otros elementos iconográficos que las integran. El resultado es una propuesta de participación simbólica de las guacamayas enfocada en la abstracción del tiempo a partir de la conducta diaria y estacional de esta especie de psitácido ruidosa (y de plumaje llamativo y sugerente); también se considera la asociación de estos animales con los conceptos de vida, movimiento y temporalidad, y con el Sol y el agua (este último como el elemento primordial vinculado con la fertilidad). In pre-Hispanic thought, Macaw (Ara macao and Ara militaris) occupy a place of honour, as witness its image captured in the murals created by different peoples, such as the Maya, the Zapotec, the ancient inhabitants of Teotihuacan and Cacaxtla. This is not a coincidence, which is why this study aims to analyze and recognize the taxonomic identity of recreated individuals, as well as argue their presence in the pictorial language as a mean of irrefutable graphic expression. To this end works with mural paintings from two archaeological sites are analyzed: the mural 1 "The birds" of the 86 structure at Xelhá, located in the northern part of Quintana Roo, and the wall East of the Red Temple in Cacaxtla, Tlaxcala, are studied. According to the modalities of graphic representation and under the criteria of thematic integration addresses the reading of the scenes taking into acount other iconographic elements that make them up. The result is a proposal for a token participation of the macaws on the abstraction of time from the daily and seasonal behavior of this kind of noisy psitacid and suggestive and striking plumage and its association with the concept of life, movement and temporality, in addition to its ass
