Development of a dynamic model for the lung lobes and airway tree in the NCAT phantom

J. M. Garrity; W. P. Segars; S. Knisley; B. M. W. Tsui 2002 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, 2002

The 4D NCAT phantom was developed to realistically model human anatomy based on the Visible Human data and cardiac and respiratory motions based on 4D tagged MRI and respiratory-gated CT data from normal human subjects. Currently, the 4D NCAT phantom does not include the airway tree or its motion within the lungs. Also, each lung is defined with a single ...


Development of a smartphone-enabled spirometer for personalised respiratory health

Charalampos Michailidis; Ioannis Smanis; Kostas Stamatis; Christos Bergeles; Antonios Kouris 2014 4th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - Transforming Healthcare Through Innovations in Mobile and Wireless Technologies (MOBIHEALTH), 2014

Airway pathologies are among the most prevalent chronic diseases, and, despite their soaring strain on the healthcare system, are still responsible for millions of deaths worldwide. The lack of personalised respiratory health management systems prohibits individuals from monitoring their own condition, thus forcing them to rely on hospital visits. The presented spirometer aims to enable individuals to perform medical-grade respiratory ...

Da-Ming Zhang; Yundong Ma 2009 3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, 2009

In view of the characteristic that the effect of controlling respirable dust is very poor in current mines. This text analyzes some characteristics of dust and some problems in current dedusting technology, which introduces several new dedusting technologies that are more suitable for mine. These dedusting technologies can achieve good result to respiratory dust and create a good working environment ...


Prediction of Lung Tumor Evolution During Radiotherapy in Individual Patients With PET

Hongmei Mi; Caroline Petitjean; Bernard Dubray; Pierre Vera; Su Ruan IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, 2014

We propose a patient-specific model based on partial differential equation to predict the evolution of lung tumors during radiotherapy. The evolution of tumor cell density is formulated by three terms: 1) advection describing the advective flux transport of tumor cells, 2) proliferation representing the tumor cell proliferation modeled as Gompertz differential equation, and 3) treatment quantifying the radiotherapeutic efficacy from ...


Case classification of pulmonary emphysema using shape and distribution of lesions

Shotaro Yoshie; Toshiyuki Tanaka; Torn Shirahata; Hiroaki Sugiura Proceedings of SICE Annual Conference 2010, 2010

Pulmonary emphysema is a kind of lung disease and doctors diagnose it referring to the lung CT images findings in. Therefore computer aided diagnosis by image processing is very useful from the quantitative and objective points of view. In this study, we focused on shape and distribution of the area of lesions in the lung CT images, and propose a ...

    Transport processes represent important life-sustaining elements in all humans. These include mass transfer processes, including gas exchange in the lungs, transport across capillaries and alveoli, transport across the kidneys, and transport across cell membranes. These mass transfer processes affect how oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged in your bloodstream, how metabolic waste products are removed from your blood, how nutrients are transported to tissues, and how all cells function throughout the body. A discussion of kidney dialysis and gas exchange mechanisms is included. Another element in biomedical transport processes is that of momentum transport and fluid flow. This describes how blood is propelled from the heart and throughout the cardiovascular system, how blood elements affect the body, including gas exchange, infection control, clotting of blood, and blood flow resistance, which affects cardiac work. A discussion of the measurement of the blood resistance to flow (vi cosity), blood flow, and pressure is also included. A third element in transport processes in the human body is that of heat transfer, including heat transfer inside the body towards the periphery as well as heat transfer from the body to the environment. A discussion of temperature measurements and body protection in extreme heat conditions is also included.

    This book addresses the problem of articulatory speech synthesis based on computed vocal tract geometries and the basic physics of sound production in it. Unlike conventional methods based on analysis/synthesis using the well- known source filter model, which assumes the independence of the excitation and filter, we treat the entire vocal apparatus as one mechanical system that produces sound by means of fluid dynamics. The vocal apparatus is represented as a three-dimensional time-varying mechanism and the sound propagation inside it is due to the non-planar propagation of acoustic waves through a viscous, compressible fluid described by the Navier-Stokes equations. We propose a combined minimum energy and minimum jerk criterion to compute the dynamics of the vocal tract during articulation. Theoretical error bounds and experimental results show that this method obtains a close match to the phonetic target positions while avoiding abrupt changes in the articulatory trajectory. The voc l folds are set into aerodynamic oscillation by the flow of air from the lungs. The modulated air stream then excites the moving vocal tract. This method shows strong evidence for source-filter interaction. Based on our results, we propose that the articulatory speech production model has the potential to synthesize speech and provide a compact parameterization of the speech signal that can be useful in a wide variety of speech signal processing problems.

  • 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.
