The authors examined the association between anthropometric variables and the standard 12-lead resting ECG of white, black and Hispanic men and women and found that, contrary to the expectations, many ECG ...

In the first stage, a global estimate of the nonrigid motion is obtained using hyperquadric models. The second stage uses this estimate to remove the global nonrigid motion (scale, shear, etc.) and then compute point correspondences between the two datasets ...

  • Digital mammographic image analysis and data compression

    This paper proposes a digital mammogram segmentation method for mammographic images, which is based on the gradient detection between breast tissue and non-tissue area. Detection of tissue edge in medical images is closely related to the correctness of image segmentation. In this paper, we focus on digital mammograms and develop an edge detection method to extract breast tissue against background with noise and/or random artifacts, as a preprocess of image compression. The results show that the developed method performs a precise recovery of boundary between breast tissue and non-tissue area, which is then removed for increasing compression rate. Therefore, problems of image transmission efficiency and data storage amount can be greatly improved. The compression rate is promoted from 3:1 to 5-6:1 by a nonlossy compression method.

  • Extracardiac factors influencing left ventricular hypertrophy classification models

    Extracardiac factors are known to influence electrocardiographic (ECG) features used in left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) classification criteria. It is generally assumed that ECG amplitudes decrease with age and obesity. The authors examined the association between anthropometric variables and the standard 12-lead resting ECG of white, black and Hispanic men and women and found that, contrary to the expectations, many ECG amplitudes such as RaVL+SV3 increased with increasing body mass index (BMI) and changed little with age. As expected, obesity was associated with leftward shift of QRS axis. However, the leftward shift of about 8 degrees per decade of age was equally pronounced in overweight and normal-weight women and men. The apparent strong influence of chest size and configuration on ECG amplitudes is largely due to variations in body weight and heart size. Smaller QRS amplitudes in left lateral chest leads in women appear partially to be associated with the attenuating effect of the breast tissue. It is concluded that chest size and configuration, and body weight have a strong influence on ECG amplitudes used in LVH criteria and that this influence differs from lead to lead and the interactions are complex. Extracardiac anthropometric factors, age, gender, and ethnic differences need to be properly considered in order to improve LVH criteria and ECG models for left ventricular mass estimation.<<ETX>>

  • Model based estimation of point correspondences between boundaries undergoing nonrigid motion [digital mammography application]

    Proposes a method for the estimation of point correspondences between boundaries undergoing nonrigid motion. The algorithm works in two stages. In the first stage, a global estimate of the nonrigid motion is obtained using hyperquadric models. The second stage uses this estimate to remove the global nonrigid motion (scale, shear, etc.) and then compute point correspondences between the two datasets assuming small deformations. The global part of the nonrigid motion (scale, shear, rotation and translation) is estimated by modeling the object with hyperquadrics and estimating the transformation between the hyperquadric parameters. Point correspondences are then estimated by using differential geometric properties during small deformations. Experimental results with real data are presented.

  • Age and sex dependent criteria for lower limits of QRS voltages

    The aim of this study was to examine whether criteria for low QRS voltage should be age and sex dependent. A database of 1496 normal ECGs from healthy adults was analysed using the University of Glasgow ECG analysis program. Correlation coefficients between peak- to-peak QRS voltages (ppQRS) and age were obtained. Differences in ppQRS due to sex were measured statistically. New thresholds were picked from the observations made and were tested on a second study population. The lower limits of ppQRS for males were significantly higher than for females in leads VI to V6 (p = 0.031, exact binomial test). Lowering the threshold for abnormality in these leads to 0.8mV for females resulted in an increase in specificity from 99.7% to 99.9%. There was evidence of correlation with age in males. In particular, the evidence supported using a different threshold for males under 40.

  • Support vector machine learning for detection of microcalcifications in mammograms

    Microcalcification (MC) clusters in mammograms can be an indicator of breast cancer. In this work we propose for the first time the use of support vector machine (SVM) learning for automated detection of MCs in digitized mammograms. In the proposed framework, MC detection is formulated as a supervised-learning problem and the method of SVM is employed to develop the detection algorithm. The proposed method is developed and evaluated using a database of 76 mammograms containing 1120 MCs. To evaluate detection performance, free- response receiver operating characteristic (FROC) curves are used. Experimental results demonstrate that, when compared to several other existing methods, the proposed SVM framework offers the best performance.

  • Detection of small tumors in the breast: combining tomography with digital subtraction

    Digital subtraction mammography is used to detect gross radiographic changes in breast tissue, but small tumors are missed. The inability to ensure exact positioning of the breast in the mamography machine every time, due to its loose and non-rigid nature causes a large amount of misregistration noise in the difference image. Since the size of the noise is comparable to the size of the tumor being detected, tumors seldom get detected before they metastasize. We propose a new technique based on submamograms. Submamograms are projection images of slabs of the breast which are computed from standard mammograms taken from a few different angles. Subtraction images derived from corresponding submamograms show more clearly those features in the breast that have undergone a change in the interval between examinations.

  • Breast Tissue Density and CAD Cancer Detection in Digital Mammography

    This study is part of the research of improving early detection of breast cancer in screening mammograms by focusing on computerized analysis and detection of cancers missed by radiologists. It is directed to the analysis of breast density in missed cancer cases and the effect of tissue density on cancer detection. A total of 100 missed cancer cases were collected which were used to generate three different datasets including mammograms with missed cancer, mammograms with screening-detected cancer and normal mammograms. A statistical-based method was applied to segment the breast density tissue. The percentage of the segmented density tissue area out of the whole breast area is calculated as the index of breast density. A set of tests was applied to examine (1) the differences in density between the mammograms at the detected stage and that at missed stage, (2) the density difference between the normal mammograms and the cancerous mammograms; (3) the effect of breast density on CAD cancer detection. The results demonstrate that (1) no significant difference in breast density between the detected and missed stages; (2) the density of cancerous mammograms is significantly higher than normal mammograms; (3) similar to mammogram screening by radiologists, the lesions occurred in dense breasts are more likely to be missed in CAD detection especially at their early stage

  • Extraction of Calibration Waveform for Confocal Microwave Imaging for Early Breast Cancer Detection

    Microwave imaging is a promising method for the early-stage breast cancer detection based on the large contrast of electric parameters between the tumor and the normal breast tissue. The tumor information can be obtained by comparing the ultra wideband signals propagating in the tumor-contained breast and tumor-free breast which used as the calibration waveform. In this study, a method of extracting calibration waveform during detection is proposed, in which the tumor is arranged randomly located in the breast tissue. The feasibility of this method in the actual detection is explained. The correct tumor information in the reconstructed breast image is achieved by using the extracted calibration waveform.
