Computerized characterization of contrast enhancement patterns for classifying pulmonary nodules

K. Minami; Y. Kawata; N. Niki; K. Mori; H. Ohmatsu; R. Kakinuma; K. Eguchi; M. Kusumoto; M. Kaneko; N. Moriyama Proceedings 2001 International Conference on Image Processing (Cat. No.01CH37205), 2001

This paper presents a computerized classification scheme of pulmonary nodules in contrast enhanced dynamic CT images. Conventionally, we extracted 3-D nodule images by using a deformable surface model. However, there was a limit in segmenting the 3-D nodule images contacted with vessels and bronchi. In order to improve the segmentation accuracy of the 3-D nodule images, we developed a software ...


An application of the optimal control theory to analysis of inspiratory phase of respiratory system

H. Hirayama; T. Nishimura; T. Uozumi; K. Ono Industrial Electronics, Control and Instrumentation, 1991. Proceedings. IECON '91., 1991 International Conference on, 1991

An optimal control theory was applied to the inspiratory phase of respiration. The performance function includes volume acceleration and external work done by inspiratory muscle which are contradictory demands for a given biological system. The respiratory system was expressed by the simplest series combination of resistance and elastance of total associated air way and thoracic wall and interstitial tissues. By ...


An Effortless Noninvasive Respiratory Diagnostic Device

Jafar Vossoughi; Arthur Johnson 2016 32nd Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference (SBEC), 2016

During the past decade the mortality and morbidity due to pulmonary diseases ranked number 2 or 3, the current data projection suggests that COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) alone will be the third cause of death worldwide by 2020. Before a respiratory disorder can be treated, it has to be diagnosed. Currently a variety of respiratory diagnostic devices/systems exists. Spirometer ...


A Mathematical Model of Respiratory and Biothermal Dynamics in Brain Hypothermia Treatment

Lu Gaohua; Hidenori Kimura IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2008

Brain hypothermia treatment (BHT) requires proper mechanical ventilation and therapeutic cooling. The cooling strategy for BHT has been mainly discussed in the literature while little information is available on the respiratory management. We first developed a mathematical model that integrates the respiratory and biothermal dynamics to discuss the simultaneous managements of mechanical ventilation and therapeutic cooling. The effect of temperature ...

We are developing computerized feature extraction and classification methods to analyze malignant and benign pulmonary nodules in three-dimensional (3-D) thoracic CT images. Surrounding structure features were designed to characterize the relationships between nodules and their surrounding structures such as vessel, bronchi, and pleura. Internal structure features were derived from CT density and 3-D curvatures to characterize the inhomogeneous of CT ...

  • Maxillofacial Virtual Surgery from 3D CT Images

    The history of scientific development is characterized by some key moments owing to the union of competences coming from far away research areas. Virtual surgery, a new discipline that recently appeared among the medical sciences, is an excellent example of contribution from medical and computational knowledges to health development and progress. Craniofacial surgery is a surgical branch regarding study and treatment of any kind of disease (malformations, trauma, and tumors) affecting the face. The anatomic and functional complexity of the face and skull, characterized by the presence of the eyes, ear, nose, mouth, facial nerves, and the proximity of important the brain and the respiratory system, make this area extremely hazardous for even skilled surgeons and a dangerous mine field for residents, fellows, and surgeons in training. For scientific and teaching reasons, we planned a research project for craniofacial surgery simulation from 3-D CT images. Generally, the goal of computer-based surgery simulation is to enable a surgeon to experiment with different surgical procedures in an artificial environment. We propose a simulation method that allows one to deal with extremely complex anatomical geometries. The computational grid is the natural Cartesian grid in which the acquired 3-D image is defined. The rest of the chapter discusses theoretical basis of the linear elastic problem with embedded Dirichlet boundary conditions, the numerical approximation scheme and the solution method, and the results obtained by the application of the method to a number of datasets. We show comparisons between virtual and real operations in real patients, and consider future work.

    Breath sounds have long been important indicators of respiratory health and disease. Acoustical monitoring of respiratory sounds has been used by researchers for various diagnostic purposes. A few decades ago, physicians relied on their hearing to detect any symptomatic signs in respiratory sounds of their patients. However, with the aid of computer technology and digital signal processing techniques in recent years, breath sound analysis has drawn much attention because of its diagnostic capabilities. Computerized respiratory sound analysis can now quantify changes in lung sounds; make permanent records of the measurements made and produce graphical representations that help with the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from lung diseases. Digital signal processing techniques have been widely used to derive characteristics features of the lung sounds for both diagnostic and assessment of treatment purposes. Although the analytical techniques of signal processing are largely ndependent of the application, interpretation of their results on biological data, i.e. respiratory sounds, requires substantial understanding of the involved physiological system. This lecture series begins with an overview of the anatomy and physiology related to human respiratory system, and proceeds to advanced research in respiratory sound analysis and modeling, and their application as diagnostic aids. Although some of the used signal processing techniques have been explained briefly, the intention of this book is not to describe the analytical methods of signal processing but the application of them and how the results can be interpreted. The book is written for engineers with university level knowledge of mathematics and digital signal processing.
