Classification of plasma cortisol patterns in normal subjects and in Cushing's syndrome

A. H. Vagnucci; T. P. Wang; V. Pratt; C. -C. Li IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1991

A pattern recognition system for computer classification of cortisol time series into the normal class and subclasses of Cushing's syndrome with different etiologies was developed. Discriminatory features are extracted from Fourier analysis and Karhunen-Loeve expansion coefficient or cortisol time series. Decision functions are trained by the least mean square error (LMSE) algorithm and tested by the jackknife test procedure on ...


A Nonlinear Time-Varying Mathematical Analog of the Gluco-Corticoid Control

Constantine B. Dolkas; Henry A. Leon IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1970

The basic characteristics contributing to the nonlinear time-varying gluco- corticoid control mechanism in 300-gram male rats fasted 18 hours have been formulated. Intact animal time responses of the plasma levels of corticosterone to intraperitoneally injected doses of 50, 200, and 500 μg/kg simulated on an analog computer were compared with the experimental results. Nonlinear time-dependent characteristics of the hypothalamic-hypophyseal complex, ...


Analysis of the Adrenocortical Steady-State Characteristics

Evangelos Papaikonomou IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1977

The nature of the input signals to the adrenal gland looked upon as a "black box" and the gland's steady-state characteristics with respect to its input channels are analyzed in this correspondence; new experimental data as well as published data are considered. It is shown that the organ has two independent inputs, ACTH concentration of the arterial blood and blood ...


Fast 3D chemical shift magnetic resonance imaging

S. Vinitski; J. Szumowski; V. M. Rao; D. L. Burk; D. G. Mitchell; H. Ortega; M. D. Rifkin Images of the Twenty-First Century. Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, 1989

Two methods of water/fat suppression are investigated. The first, selective excitation, suppresses approximately 70% of fat or water signals. The second method, a phase-sensitive modification of the Dixon technique, achieves more than 95% fat or water suppression. Fat-suppressed data acquisition is applied to musculoskeletal and CNS imaging. In comparison to standard 3-D images, these sequences provide an enhanced demonstration of ...


Optimized multi-stable stochastic resonance for the enhancement of pituitary micoadenoma in MRI

Munendra Singh; Ashish Verma; Neeraj Sharma IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, 2017

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice as far as imaging diagnosis of pathologies in the pituitary gland is concerned. Further, the advent of dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) has enhanced the capability of this modality in detecting minute benign but endocrinologically significant tumors called microadenoma. These lesions are visible with difficulty and a low confidence level in routine ...
