  • An Efficient Method for Segmentation of MRI Spine Images

    The study of the segmentation of MRI Spine Image is of crucial importance for computer aided medical image identifying and clinical studies of neurological pathology. Computer characterization of a vertebra or disk is of limited clinical value if that structure cannot be accurately segmented and identified. However, Manual operations of tracking these structures are so tedious that automated method of spine tracking and segmentation are in high demand. In this paper, a vertebral disks segmentation method is proposed. The method can locate and label the disks through locating the spinal cord with Hough Transform. The efficiency of the proposed method is demonstrated by experiments using real MR images provided by College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati.

  • AUTOMATED 3D MAPPING & SHAPE ANALYSIS OF THE LATERAL VENTRICLES VIA FLUID REGISTRATION OF MULTIPLE SURFACE-BASED ATLASES

    We developed and validated a new method to create automated 3D parametric surface models of the lateral ventricles, designed for monitoring degenerative disease effects in clinical neuroscience studies and drug trials. First we used a set of parameterized surfaces to represent the ventricles in a manually labeled set of 9 subjects' MRIs (atlases). We fluidly registered each of these atlases and mesh models to a set of MRIs from 12 Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and 14 matched healthy elderly subjects, and we averaged the resulting meshes for each of these images. Validation experiments on expert segmentations showed that (1) the Hausdorff labeling error rapidly decreased, and (2) the power to detect disease-related alterations monotonically improved as the number of atlases, N, was increased from 1 to 9. We then combined the segmentations with a radial mapping approach to localize ventricular shape differences in patients. In surface-based statistical maps, we detected more widespread and intense anatomical deficits as we increased the number of atlases, and we formulated a statistical stopping criterion to determine the optimal value of N. Anterior horn anomalies in Alzheimer's patients were only detected with the multi-atlas segmentation, which clearly outperformed the standard single-atlas approach.

  • Preliminary 6 month results from the argustm ii epiretinal prosthesis feasibility study

    The Argustrade II 60 channel epiretinal prosthesis has been developed in order to provide partial restoration of vision to subjects blinded from outer retinal degenerative disease. To date the device has been implanted in 21 subjects as part of a feasibility study. In 6 month post-implantation door finding and line tracking orientation and mobility testing, subjects have shown improvements of 86% and 73%, respectively, for system on vs. system off. In high-contrast square localization tests using a touch screen monitor 87% of tested subjects performed significantly better with the system on compared with off. These preliminary results show that the Argus II system provides some functional vision to blind subjects.

  • Monitoring requirements: a case study

    In our study of composite systems, we found a class of requirements that could not be guaranteed to hold. Specifically, these requirements required the environment of the overall system to behave in ways that could not be controlled. The best we could do in such cases was to note the assumptions placed on the environment for the requirements to be met, and then monitor the environment at runtime to detect deviations from our assumptions about its behavior. This paper discusses a short example of carrying out this type of monitoring. It introduces three tools to support requirements monitoring: (1) a tool to capture a requirement formally, (2) a tool to translate that requirement into a runtime specification, and (3) a tool to actually do the runtime monitoring.

  • EWS for detecting macular degeneration

    In this paper an embedded prototype testing device has been presented that was developed in order to formalize the testing procedure in order to detect the indications of macular degeneration (MD) in the human eye. The basic idea of increased delay time for the diseased eye is exploited in this work and a simple and easy to use prototype has been materialized. In order to make a fully automated early warning system (EWS) to detect the macular degeneration symptoms, this device can be used as the data collection source. At present, this device is being used for clinical testing and collecting the necessary data.

  • Nonlinear enhancement and segmentation algorithm for the detection of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in human eye's retina

    Assessment of the risk for the development of age related macular degeneration requires reliable detection of retinal abnormalities that are considered as precursors of the disease. A typical sign for the latter are the so-called drusen, which appear as abnormal white-yellow deposits on the retina. This paper presents a novel segmentation algorithm for automatic detection of abnormalities in images of the human eye's retina, acquired from a depth- vision camera. Conventional image processing techniques are sensitive to non- uniform illumination and nonhomogeneous background, which obstructs the derivation of reliable results for a large set of different images. Homomorphic filtering and a multilevel variant of histogram equalization are used for non-uniform illumination compensation and enhancement. We develop a novel segmentation technique, the histogram-teased adaptive local thresholding (HALT), to detect drusen in retina images by extracting the useful information without being affected by the presence of other structures. We provide experimental results from the application of our technique to real images, where certain abnormalities (drusen) have slightly different characteristics from the background and are hard to be segmented by other conventional techniques.

  • Stereotactic analysis of spinal motion segments

    The 3D image space defined from the 3-space of CT image data is capable of accurately identifying the anatomy of vertebral bodies. With the recent advances made by highly accurate stereotactic systems, a means of consistently identifying six markers on a vertebral body was implemented and subsequent 3D measurements were ascertained. Three points were used to form two vectors on each body. In turn, the cross product from these two vectors resulted in a third vector orthogonal to the two. This was done for both bodies in the spinal motion segment. The spines were then implanted with two threaded intervertebral fusion cages and the measurements were repeated. The difference between the original lordosis and final lordosis is the reported restored lordosis. Six human cadaver lumbar spines were used to evaluate the restored lordosis through this technique. The final lordosis was found to be statistically larger than the original lordosis and the restored lordosis from these intervertebral cages were found to be 5.8/spl deg//spl plusmn/3.6.

  • Analysis of Physical Activities in Wu-Shu Training

    The present study proposed methods of preventing diseases, controlling chronic degenerative diseases and promoting health, which are major concerns of sports medicine. In the proposed methods, we analyzed wu-shu trainees' physical activities scientifically and quantitatively. The amount of physical activities was measured using SenseWear-PRO2-armband developed by body-medai company. The armband includes skin temperature sensor, skin surface temperature sensor, accelerometer, thermal diffusion sensor, and galvanic skin reaction sensor. Obtained data were recorded in the armband. Recorded data were analyzed using inner/view wearer software in terms of skin temperature, calorie consumption and the amount of physical activities. According to the results, those had continued exercise for a long time consumed a lot of energy in a short time, and intensive physical activities increased energy consumption and, at the same time, raised temperature. In addition, our experiment showed that the increase of energy consumption also raised skin temperature, which in turn caused heat flux. What is more, skin conduction appeared not to be affected by factors such as physical activity, energy consumption and skin temperature. The results of this research may provide information useful for preventing cardiovascular diseases, controlling chronic degenerative diseases and ultimately managing health through activating physiological metabolism.

  • In vivo images of retinal structure and relation to visual function in hereditary retinal degenerations

    Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a new technique for non-invasive non- contact cross-sectional imaging of the human retina. The authors investigated the relationship between OCT images and visual function in hereditary retinal degenerations. OCTs suggest abnormalities mainly at the level and sclerad to the retinal pigment epithelium and reductions in "retinal" thickness. These findings correlate well with the levels of dysfunction in these retinal regions and are in keeping with expectations from retinal histopathology of postmortem donor tissue. In vivo imaging of retinal structure holds promise as a complement to clinical and visual function evaluations in the diagnosis of retinal degenerations and monitoring of future treatment trials.
