Various thoracic inhomogeneities affect the measured surface ECG signal. Similarly when the conductivities of these inhomogeneities change the ECG may change as well. Conductivity of tissue may change due to variation in body water and electrolyte balance e.g. due to many diseases. Furthermore, there exits uncertainty regarding the correct values of tissue conductivities and their inter- and intrapatient alterations. Thus ...

Image noise is one of the main restrictions in computed tomography (CT) with respect to the trade-off between resolution and dose. An HD-MAF is proposed based on a local histogram function identifying the most representative CT value. The local histogram function is computed over an n-dimensional homogenous subvolume which is defined by a principal component analysis. Image filtering affects only ...

  • 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.

  • Pedestrian Collisions with Flat-Fronted Vehicles: Injury Patterns and Importance of Rotational Accelerations as a Predictor for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    Research on pedestrian protection currently is focusing mainly on passenger cars. However, impacts with heavy goods vehicles (HGV) and buses are also important, especially in urban areas and in developing countries. This study is an attempt to show the distribution of injury patterns focused on the head injury mechanism. In the European project APOLLO WPII database with a number of 104 pedestrians injured by a HGV or bus were identified. The head was found the most severely injured anatomic region, with an average AIS of 3.1, followed by the abdomen/pelvis (AIS 2.9), and the thorax (AIS 2.1). Using the Dr. Martin transformation matrix, head injury mechanisms were assigned to codified head injuries. Around 69% of the sustained head injuries had a rotational injury mechanism, 21% translational, and 10% either. Three multi- body vehicle models, representing two HGV and one bus, were used in a large parameter analysis. The simulations showed that the angular velocity change is exceeding 30rad/s and the angular acceleration is exceeding 10.000rad/s² in simulations where the HIC value was below 1000. Additionally the head injury risk was assessed by prescribing the accelerations of the human pedestrian model’s head to a finite element head and brain model. It can be concluded that head injuries are the most frequent injuries sustained by pedestrians involved in a collision with a flat-fronted vehicle and rotational accelerations are responsible for around 70% of head injuries. Impactors currently used in pedestrian protection regulations do not assess rotation- induced injuries.
