Automated measurement and segmentation of abdominal adipose tissue in MRI

Daniel Lewis Sussman; Jianhua Yao; Ronald M. Summers 2010 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2010

Obesity has become widespread in America and has been identified as a risk factor for many illnesses. Measuring adipose tissue (AT) with traditional means is often unreliable and inaccurate. MRI provides a safe and minimally invasive means to measure AT accurately and segment visceral AT from subcutaneous AT. However, MRI is often corrupted by image artifacts which make manual measurements ...


Effect of intraluminal thrombus on local abdominal aortic aneurysm wall strength

D. H. J. Wang; B. J. Schiro; M. S. Makaroun; M. W. Webster; D. A. Vorp Proceedings of the First Joint BMES/EMBS Conference. 1999 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 21st Annual Conference and the 1999 Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (Cat. N, 1999

We have shown that the intraluminal thrombus (ILT) commonly found within abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) significantly attenuates diffusion of oxygen to the aortic wall as its thickness increases. We hypothesize that, as a result, the strength of the AAA wall is inversely related to ILT thickness. We tested the strength of 6 pairs of freshly excised AAA wall specimens from ...


Implementation and evaluation of a calculated attenuation correction for PET

S. Siegel; M. Dahlbom IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1992

The authors have developed a highly reliable and consistent method for automated calculated attenuation correction for positron emission tomography (PET). The method is based on estimating the object contour from the emission sinograms. The method relies on a robust algorithm to determine the border between activity and scatter background. The algorithm has been applied to brain studies with a variety ...


DETECT-dual energy transmission estimation CT-for improved attenuation correction in SPECT and PET

M. J. Guy; I. A. Castellano-Smith; M. A. Flower; G. D. Flux; R. J. Ott; D. Visvikis IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1998

Accurate attenuation correction is a vital component of any quantitative emission CT (ECT) study, especially 131I-mIBG SPECT where accurate activity measurements are required for dosimetry calculations. Conventional CT is often used to obtain an attenuation map, which is then scaled to the 131I emission energy (364 keV). Scaling inaccuracies due to the increased photoelectric component of the attenuation coefficients of ...

T. F. Budinger; S. E. Derenzo; R. H. Huesman; J. L. Cahoon IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1982

Design criteria for positron emission tomography are based on the accumulated experiences of PET studies with available instruments, anatomical and physiological characteristics of the thorax and abdomen, and feasible medical science objectives which can be attained with known technology. The system should be capable of simultaneously imaging seven or more planes with 10 mm axial and 7 mm or less ...

    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.
