Automated detection of prostate cancer nuclei

2000 10th European Signal Processing Conference, 2000

In this work, a cross-disciplinary approach was presented for the solution of a biomedicai pattern recognition problem: cancer diagnosis. Specifically, prostate specimen images were analyzed. Images were acquired by a microscope, video camera and a digitizing board and stored on a computer. The software required to indicate the areas of interest of the tissue image to the pathologist, was developed ...

Evaluation of fetal heart rate recordings based on clustering

Computing in Cardiology 2014, 2014

Fetal heart rate (FHR) recorded within the cardiotocography (CTG) measurement is currently the main method to evaluate fetal health state during delivery. The CTG provides valuable information about fetal behavior as a reaction to stressful events (hypoxic episodes). The presented paper proposes to use data driven analysis of FHR - the clustering analysis of features derived automatically from the signal ...


Noise reduction and brain tissue classification in MR images

IEEE Conference on Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging, 1992

The effect of Gaussian noise and noise reduction techniques on subsequent tissue classification in MR (magnetic resonance) images was investigated. For image restoration, a nonlinear Gaussian window filter was used before classifying the multispectral MR acquisitions from the head. The Bayesian classifier was based on J. Haslett's (1985) contextual method. The classification experiments demonstrated that it was possible to recognize ...

  • Automated detection of prostate cancer nuclei

    In this work, a cross-disciplinary approach was presented for the solution of a biomedicai pattern recognition problem: cancer diagnosis. Specifically, prostate specimen images were analyzed. Images were acquired by a microscope, video camera and a digitizing board and stored on a computer. The software required to indicate the areas of interest of the tissue image to the pathologist, was developed on the object-oriented basis. User interface was designed for the required functions. Discriminatory power of shape feature were evaluated statistically. The sensitivity and specificity ratios for different threshold levels of the feature set were calculated.

  • Evaluation of fetal heart rate recordings based on clustering

    Fetal heart rate (FHR) recorded within the cardiotocography (CTG) measurement is currently the main method to evaluate fetal health state during delivery. The CTG provides valuable information about fetal behavior as a reaction to stressful events (hypoxic episodes). The presented paper proposes to use data driven analysis of FHR - the clustering analysis of features derived automatically from the signal using novel method of signal approximation called SAX Even though the clustering is well grounded in signal processing tasks in the field of FHR research it is used sparingly due to high inter- individual variability of fetuses and dificulties to link diferent temporal events. Data from the open access CTU-UHB database (552 CTG records) available at the Physionet are used and the 30 minutes segments at the end of the first stage of labor are analyzed. The classification based on clustering achieved sensitivity of 58. 7% and specificity of 69.4% for the two class classification - well comparable to other pH based studies. Sensitivity was improved to 71.4% for six cluster settings - thus suggesting different classes of FHR. This is in contrast with objective evaluation (two classes usually determined with pH threshold) and three classes (used by clinicians for evaluation). Nevertheless to properly describe the link between these clusters and clinical evaluation robust interpretation is still necessary.

  • Noise reduction and brain tissue classification in MR images

    The effect of Gaussian noise and noise reduction techniques on subsequent tissue classification in MR (magnetic resonance) images was investigated. For image restoration, a nonlinear Gaussian window filter was used before classifying the multispectral MR acquisitions from the head. The Bayesian classifier was based on J. Haslett's (1985) contextual method. The classification experiments demonstrated that it was possible to recognize normal brain tissue types and some pathological lesions. Preprocessing with the Gaussian window filter did not improve the tissue classification results in the case of images with normal noise level. The robustness of the classifier against noise (which is shown to be Gaussian) was explored. Noisy input severely affected the classification results. However, the number of misclassifications was clearly reduced after applying a Gaussian window filter with a fixed smoothing parameter.<<ETX>>

  • Inertial-based control system concepts for the treatment of movement disorders

    This work provides a summary of the state-of-the-art in inertial-based adaptive stimulation strategies for treatment of movement disorders like Parkinson's disease and Essential Tremor. A review of recent technical and clinical neuroscience is provided to give a state-of-the-art overview. We then propose a closed-loop system concept using an accelerometer and a phase locked loop algorithm as a conceptual methodology for enhanced therapy systems. The remaining challenges to practical implementation are then briefly described.

  • Analysis of late potentials using the interference terms of the Wigner distribution

    Often Wigner distribution's interference terms are considered "undesirable" artifacts in the time-frequency plane because they do not permit to observe important components of the analyzed signal, nevertheless, these interference terms could be a very useful tool in analysis of multicomponent signals, for instance, they can be employed to break up a signal into a sum of parts. This paper presents a time-frequency representation to analyze late potentials by means of interference terms interpretation of the Wigner distribution with ventricular tachycardia patients.

Especially telemedicine is situated in one of the important solutions for the problems, and then we have started an experiment of telemedicine between Kazakhstan and Japan in order to improve the accuracy of pathological diagnosis. In this experiment we have produced good results using the teleconsultation system.

  • Mueller-matrix tomography of biotissue

    Summary form only given. The polarization tomography features of optically anisotropic architectonic nets of different morphological structure biotissues (BT) have been investigated. The phase tomography (PT) features of skin derma, muscular and bone BT have been experimentally investigated. The interrelation between the PT structure and BT physiological state has been determined. The early diagnostics criteria of the degenerative-dystrophic appearance and pathological changes of the structure of BT optically anisotropic architectonics have been determined: (i) Optical anisotropy of physiologically normal myometry is not practically apparent- the PTs represent a quasi- homogeneous field with several fluctuations /spl Delta/n(X,Y) /spl ap/ 10/sup -5/. This points to a rather amorphous optical structure of BT, i.e., to "lack of development" of myometry collagen net. (ii) The phase component topology of the diffusely changed myometry architectonics is formed by the areas with inhomogeneous distribution of birefringence /spl Delta/n(X,Y), the values of which vary from 1.2 /spl times/ 10/sup -4/ to 1.1 /spl times/ 10/sup -3/ respectively. (iii) The tumor-forming processes are accompanied by the formation of "anisotropy zones", within which the birefringence value of architectonics increases by two orders and reaches the level of 2.5 /spl times/ 10/sup -3/.
