Dynamic G-based fourth normal form is a grammar-based verification method which utilizes Wijngaarden grammars (A. Van Wijngaarden, 1969), to test dynamic semantics of the fourth normal form in a relational database. Grammar formalizes the relational table at both attribute level and tuple level. It is useful in dynamic G-based fourth normal form to think of attributes and their relationships as ...

Electronic cleansing (EC) is a method that segments fecal material tagged by an X-ray-opaque oral contrast agent in computed tomographic colonography (CTC) images, and effectively removes the material for digitally cleansing the colon. In this study, we developed a novel EC method, called mosaic decomposition (MD), for reduction of the artifacts due to incomplete cleansing of inhomogeneously tagged fecal material ...

Colon cancer heavily changes the composition of human genes (expressions). The deviation in the chemical composition of genes can be exploited to automatically diagnose colon cancer. The major challenge in the analysis of human gene based datasets is their large dimensionality. Therefore, efficient techniques are needed to select discerning genes. In this research article, we propose a novel classification technique ...

Cluster analysis has become a popular method for gene expression data, which can be used for the diagnosis of diseases accurately and rapidly through the class label. However, more attributes and less samples of gene expression data will produce a mass of redundant or disturbed information, resulting in the decline of the accuracy of the direct clustering acting on high ...

In recent years, cancer can be detected and recognized by analyzing the sample's expression profile. The cancer gene expression data are high dimensional, high variable dependent, and very noisy. The dimension reduction method is often used for processing the high dimensional data. In this study, a new statistical dimension reduction method called Expressive Value Distance (EVD) is developed and proposed ...

Colonoscopy is a medical procedure in which a long and flexible endoscope is inserted into the rectum for inspection of the colon and for simple interventions. Pushing the long and flexible endoscope from behind leads easily to buckling, which is accompanied by painful cramps and makes it difficult to complete the procedure. A way to avoid buckling is to use ...

There has been various research conducted in polyp detection in endoscopic videos but not much has been done in the field of polyp tracking in endoscopic videos which itself is a very challenging task because of the nature of endoscopic videos. This paper discusses a modified method of polyp detection and proposes a feature point based polyp tracking method which ...

This paper suggests a simple use-case modeling method integrating the method of use-case modeling in UML and OML. The method gets rid of generalization, extend and including relationships among use cases, and introduces the generalization relationship among actors, the use relationship between actor and use case, the precede relationship among use cases, two levels view and two kinds of use ...

Outpatient surgery scheduling involves the coordination of several activities in an uncertain environment. Due to the very customized nature of surgical procedures there is significant uncertainty in the duration of activities related to the intake process, surgical procedure, and recovery process. Furthermore, there are multiple criteria which must be traded off when considering how to schedule surgical procedures including patient ...

We develop an NIR autofluorescence imaging system combination with polarization technique to explore its potential for cancer diagnosis and detection. Colon tissues (normal vs. cancer) from patients who underwent colonoscopy or surgical resections were used for this study. The tissue imaging including NIR white light images, autofluorescence (AF) images and FPI images (parallel-, and perpendicular- polarization) were acquired in tandem. ...

The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...
