Mapping the cardiogenic impedance signal on the thorax

R. Patterson; L. Wang; B. Raza; G. McVeigh; R. Burns Images of the Twenty-First Century. Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, 1989

The cardiogenic electrical impedance signal was mapped on the anterior surface of the thorax. Using spot electrodes to pick up the impedance signal between the suprasternal notch and a point 10 cm below, stroke volume (SV) was measured with postural change and during 50-W bicycle exercise. The mapping showed that approximately 80% of the signal comes from the upper thorax. ...


Current distribution in a 3-D thorax model for impedance cardiography

D. W. Kim; N. H. Kim; W. K. Kim; S. H. Park Images of the Twenty-First Century. Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, 1989

A 658-element, three-dimensional finite-element model of the thorax and neck using eight-node trilinear hexahedron elements was constructed for investigating the current distribution in the thorax. A three-dimensional finite-element code was developed to solve the generalized Laplace equation with Dirichlet and homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. The current in each element was calculated from the potentials at the eight nodes. The results ...


Lung ventilation imaging based on structural model by electrical impedance tomography

X. Y. Chen; H. X. Wang; W. Y. Fan; Z. Y. Lv 2009 ICME International Conference on Complex Medical Engineering, 2009

Electrical impedance tomography (EIT), as a relatively new medical imaging method, has desirable advantages of being inexpensive, safe, non-invasive and portable. Complementary to existing methods, it is expected to reconstruct accurate images of impedance changes from the sensor arrays surrounding the boundary. One of the approaches to producing an accurately reconstructed image of the object in question is the inclusion ...


The Utah PET lesion detection database

Dan J. Kadrmas 2009 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record (NSS/MIC), 2009

Task-based assessment of image quality is a challenging but necessary step in evaluating advancements in PET instrumentation, algorithms, and processing. We have been developing methods of evaluating observer performance for detecting and localizing focal warm lesions using experimentally-acquired whole-body phantom data designed to mimic oncologic FDG PET imaging. This work describes a new resource of experimental phantom data that is ...

  • 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.
