Liver Contour Extraction Using Modified Snake with Morphological Multiscale Gradients

Wenfeng Wang; Li Ma; Lin Yang 2008 International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2008

Liver segmentation from CT image is a difficult task due to abdomen apparatus complexity. Snakes, or active contours, are extensively used in medical image segmentation. The automatic generation of initial snake curves and improving snake performance in case of blur edges are still open challenges for liver segmentations. In this paper, texture classification and morphology filter are employed to generate ...


An Abdominal CCD Camera for the Continuous Video Recording of Sheep Ovary Images During the Reproductive Cycle

Henry J. Benoit; Kenneth E. Anderson; Rudi Borth; C. Allan Woolever IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1978

An intra-abdominal ovary-isolating observation system based on a charge- coupled device (CCD) camera and intended for continuously recording video images of the ovary during the reproductive cycle was constructed and surgically implanted in ewes. A time-related label was generated automatically for the identification of each frame. Results demonstrate the importance and unique capabilities of bio-implantable cameras for long-term studies.

An ANFIS based neuro-fuzzy classifier with a pruning algorithm was implemented and applied to the classification of sleep-waking states-stages in infants, using the sleep pattern detection system of P.A. Estevez (2002) to generate the inputs. Including artifacted pages, an average of 88.2% of expert agreement was achieved for testing data. As a result of the training process and pruning, rules ...


CT Truncation artifact removal using water-equivalent thicknesses derived from truncated projection data

Jonathan S. Maltz; Supratik Bose; Himanshu P. Shukla; Ali R. Bani-Hashemi 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Large patient anatomies and limited imaging fleld-of-view (FOV) lead to truncation of CT projections. Truncation introduces serious artifacts into reconstructed images, including central cupping and bright external rings. FOV may be increased using laterally offset detectors, but this requires sophisticated imaging hardware and full angular scanning. We propose a novel method to complete truncated projections based on the observation that ...

    Segmentation and landmarking of computed tomographic (CT) images of pediatric patients are important and useful in computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), treatment planning, and objective analysis of normal as well as pathological regions. Identification and segmentation of organs and tissues in the presence of tumors are difficult. Automatic segmentation of the primary tumor mass in neuroblastoma could facilitate reproducible and objective analysis of the tumor's tissue composition, shape, and size. However, due to the heterogeneous tissue composition of the neuroblastic tumor, ranging from low-attenuation necrosis to high-attenuation calcification, segmentation of the tumor mass is a challenging problem. In this context, methods are described in this book for identification and segmentation of several abdominal and thoracic landmarks to assist in the segmentation of neuroblastic tumors in pediatric CT images. Methods to identify and segment automatically the peripheral artifacts and tissu s, the rib structure, the vertebral column, the spinal canal, the diaphragm, and the pelvic surface are described. Techniques are also presented to evaluate quantitatively the results of segmentation of the vertebral column, the spinal canal, the diaphragm, and the pelvic girdle by comparing with the results of independent manual segmentation performed by a radiologist. The use of the landmarks and removal of several tissues and organs are shown to assist in limiting the scope of the tumor segmentation process to the abdomen, to lead to the reduction of the false-positive error, and to improve the result of segmentation of neuroblastic tumors.

  • Physiological Motion and Measurement

    Respiratory, heart, and circulatory movements that can be detected without contact by Doppler radar are concentrated not only in the thorax, where the lungs and heart lie, but they also occur in the abdomen, which moves during respiration, and at other points on the body where superficial pulses are present. This chapter first describes the motion associated with breathing and how this motion affects the skin surface motion. It then discusses the location and anatomy of the heart, the electrical and mechanical events that cause contraction, the motion of the heart during contraction, and how that motion affects chest wall motion. The chapter also describes the location and structure of the arteries and veins, how they distend as the blood pressure varies during the cardiac cycle, and how this distension affects the skin surface motion. Doppler radar measurement of heart and respiration is a measurement of surface motion.
