A method is described for obtaining the fetal ECG from surface electrodes using a procedure that combines averaging and adaptive techniques. The algorithm proposed consists of an adaptive filter whose reference signal is an impulse synchronized with the maternal QRS and whose desired signal is a fetal abdominal derivation. The filter behaves as an exponential average whereby its weights define ...
2011 Second International Conference on Emerging Applications of Information Technology, 2011
Fetal mortality rate is considered a good measure of the quality of health care in a country or a medical facility. If we look at the current scenario, we find that we have focused more on child mortality rate than on fetus mortality. Even it is a same situation in developed country. Our aim is to provide technological solutions to ...

This paper addresses the enhancements achievable by the application of wavelet transform to fetal ECG (FECG) signals extracted by polynomial networks. The polynomial networks technique has been exploited to isolate fetal electrocardiogram (FECG) from the undesired mapped maternal electrocardiogram (mapped MECG). In this paper wavelet transform is used to enhance the extracted FECG. Processing of both real and synthetic ECG ...

The development of the fetal cardiovascular system plays a crucial role in fetal health. The evolution of the relationship between fetal and maternal cardiac systems during fetal maturation is a characterizing feature for fetal cardiac development. This paper aims to evaluate this relationship by investigating the beat-to-beat synchronization between fetal and maternal heart rates and its variation at different stages ...

Analysis of the health condition of the fetus on ultrasound is needed by medical personnel as well as of pregnant women who are pregnant. At a young age the pregnancy is still a great time to do the analysis on the condition of the baby in the womb. But most of this process can only be done by experts, namely ...
A method is described for obtaining the fetal ECG from surface electrodes using a procedure that combines averaging and adaptive techniques. The algorithm proposed consists of an adaptive filter whose reference signal is an impulse synchronized with the maternal QRS and whose desired signal is a fetal abdominal derivation. The filter behaves as an exponential average whereby its weights define an averaged abdominal maternal pulse that can be subtracted from the original register, thus eliminating the maternal contribution and securing a clean fetal ECG.
Fetal mortality rate is considered a good measure of the quality of health care in a country or a medical facility. If we look at the current scenario, we find that we have focused more on child mortality rate than on fetus mortality. Even it is a same situation in developed country. Our aim is to provide technological solutions to help decrease the fetal mortality rate. Also if we consider pregnant women, they have to come to hospital 2-3 times a week for their regular checkups. It becomes a problem for working women and women having diabetes or other disease. For these reasons it would be very helpful if they can do this by themselves at home. This will reduce the frequency of their visit to the hospital at same time cause no compromise in the well being of both the mother and the child.
This paper addresses the enhancements achievable by the application of wavelet transform to fetal ECG (FECG) signals extracted by polynomial networks. The polynomial networks technique has been exploited to isolate fetal electrocardiogram (FECG) from the undesired mapped maternal electrocardiogram (mapped MECG). In this paper wavelet transform is used to enhance the extracted FECG. Processing of both real and synthetic ECG data are examined with proposed pre and post wavelet denoising algorithms. Results show improved extraction performance and successful removal of baseline wandering. Numerical results of signal-to-noise ratio for synthetic data attest considerable enhancement. The characteristics of the FECG signal were shown to be preserved and a relatively clean FECG signal is obtained.
The development of the fetal cardiovascular system plays a crucial role in fetal health. The evolution of the relationship between fetal and maternal cardiac systems during fetal maturation is a characterizing feature for fetal cardiac development. This paper aims to evaluate this relationship by investigating the beat-to-beat synchronization between fetal and maternal heart rates and its variation at different stages of pregnancy. Synchronization epochs and phase locking patterns are analyzed at certain synchronization ratios (SRs) for three gestational age groups (16-26 weeks, 27-33 weeks, 34-40 weeks). Results show that the normalized synchronization epoch is significantly different for three age groups with the p-value of 6.72*10<sup>-6</sup> and 2.89*10<sup>-4</sup> at SR of 1:2 and 4:5 respectively. The variance of phase locking also shows significant difference for three groups with the p-value less than 10<sup>-7</sup> at four SRs. Results also suggest that synchronization may be the force behind the increase in the maternal heart rate to maintain the fetal development and provide supplies for the fetus. Overall, the findings propose new clinical markers for evaluating the antenatal development.
Analysis of the health condition of the fetus on ultrasound is needed by medical personnel as well as of pregnant women who are pregnant. At a young age the pregnancy is still a great time to do the analysis on the condition of the baby in the womb. But most of this process can only be done by experts, namely medical personnel. It is necessary for a segmentation process on the results of the ultrasound image processing that aims to help medical personnel, patients are pregnant women and the general public to determine how the development of the fetus to grow healthy or whether there is any abnormality. The parameters which will be used as the basis for determining the level of health of the fetus in early pregnancy, the length of the fetus (Crown Rump Length) and the gestational sac diameter (gestational sac). The parameters are expected to be visible after the ultrasound image through a phase of segmentation by using Active Contour Models. This method uses the principle of minimizing the energy to detect specific feature in the image.
It was reported that the measurement error of the fetal heart rate variability (FHRV), which was obtained by a ultrasound heart rate monitor with the Doppler signal, was large even if the auto-correlation technique was used. Nevertheless, fetal heart rate monitoring by the ultrasound heart rate monitor is necessary to determine the status of the fetus because an invasive test cannot be used daily. In order to make sure the quality of the FHRV obtained from the Doppler data, we measured the fetal ECG directly from the fetal sculpture at the same time as the Doppler data. The FHRV differences of the Doppler data from the direct ECG data were found to be concentrated at 0 bpm (beats per minute), around which the pattern of distribution is practically symmetrical. Furthermore, the spectral density of the FHRV differences showed the white spectrum without dominant peaks.<<ETX>>
Contemporary technologies have positively affected everyday medical practice for the benefit of faster and more objective diagnoses. Image and video processing techniques have added potential to this effort, but still there is a long road ahead. In this paper a specially developed video processing methodology is described which determines the fetus velocity using B-mode ultrasonic video imaging. For that purpose, a semi-automated process using advanced computer vision and image processing tools is presented and evaluated. The results are presented with a detailed statistical analysis to verify the repeatability ad reliability of the method.
A computer-based statistical pattern recognition program from digitized spectral waveform envelopes of amniotic fluid displacement during fetal 'respiration'' was developed to extract discriminant features of respiratory maturation. The accuracy of the model reached 98% in estimating maturity in 37 healthy controls. A subset of high-risk subjects was classified with 100% accuracy in relation to maturity and growth. The incorporation of computer algorithms to extract significant kinematic variables (p < ,05) using pattern-based recognition of spectral signal features may provide a method to classify respiratory-related maturation in medical practice and obtain objective clinical indices of abnormal pulmonary states
We demonstrate how sigmoidal fuzzification affects discriminant capacities. In particular, we study the preprocessing perceptron and compare it with the multilayer perceptron. Case studies are selected from the medical domain, where output performance needs to be related to requirements for high sensitivities. These smaller and more informative networks tend also to be more robust with respect to accuracy with various requirements on sensitivities.
