SPECT breast imaging combining horizontal and vertical axes of rotation

S. D. Metzler; J. E. Bowsher; M. P. Tornai; B. C. Pieper; J. Peter; R. J. Jaszczak IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 2002

Vertical-axis-of-rotation (VAOR) geometries, in which a gamma camera orbits a pendulous breast of a prone patient, have been proposed for SPECT breast imaging. Dedicated VAOR systems would be advantageous since they allow for minimal radius of rotation around the breast, which improves resolution- sensitivity tradeoffs, and there is less attenuation and scatter between the breast and the camera. However, the ...


Initial study with microwave imaging of the axilla to aid breast cancer diagnosis

Ricardo Eleutério; Alexandre Medina; Raquel C. Conceição 2014 USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting (Joint with AP-S Symposium), 2014

Microwave Imaging (MWI) is one of the most promising imaging modalities for breast cancer early screening and monitoring. An important issue that is not commonly addressed in breast microwave imaging literature is the importance of imaging the underarm region - where up to 80% of breast cancer cells can metastasise to [Cameron et al, ANTEM, 1-3, 2010; Patani, Journal of ...


A digital phantom of the axilla based on the Visible Human Project data set

S. J. McCallum; A. Welch; L. Baker 2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Describes the development of a new digital phantom designed for Monte Carlo simulations of breast cancer and particularly PET imaging of the axillary lymph nodes. The phantom was based on data from the Visible Human Project(R) female data set. The phantom covers the head to diaphragm regions; 17 major tissue types were segmented and 66 individual lymph nodes were identified. ...


Elbow and elbow manipulators are optimal!

Brad Paden; Shankar Sastry 1985 24th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, 1985

We show that the elbow manipulators and their duals are the optimal designs for 6R manipulators. The performance measures used are those of work-volume and a property defined herein called well-connected-workspace. It is shown that a 6R manipulator, M, has maximal work-volume and a well-connected- workspace if and only if M or M* (its dual) is an elbow manipulator.


Human identification from body shape

A. Godil; P. Grother; S. Ressler Fourth International Conference on 3-D Digital Imaging and Modeling, 2003. 3DIM 2003. Proceedings., 2003

We investigate the utility of static anthropometric distances as a biometric for human identification. The 3D landmark data from the CAESAR database is used to form a simple biometric consisting of distances between fixed rigidly connected body locations. This biometric is overt, and invariant to view and body posture. We use this to quantify the asymmetry of human bodies, and ...
