    Cardiovascular diseases are killing more and more people around the world, striking rich and poor alike. The World Health Organization identifies these diseases as challenges to population health and well being and calls it a global epidemic. These diseases can seriously affect the life of both the patient and family. In tandem with a strategy to provide information and education to individuals at... View full abstract»

  • Preliminary results on using an extension of gradient method for detection of red lesions on eye fundus photographs

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):43 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (899 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper presents an extension of the gradient method for detection of red lesions on images of eye fundus, like a step in an automated system for recognition of diabetic retinopathy. Images of high resolution were corrected for shading and noise and the method was applied by calculating on every pixel the ldquoexpanding gradientrdquo of that pixel. This way, a map of the image was obtained and b... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a classification scheme of prostate cancer patients based on support vector machines (SVM) classifiers that allow including the diagnosed prostate cancer patients into risk classes, before performing radical prostatectomy, according to their medical parameters. Our objective is to assess the use of SVM in order to predict the individual result of radical prostatectomy performed... View full abstract»

    A significant relationship between autonomic nervous system function and cardiovascular mortality, including sudden death, has been reported. Loss of heart rate variability (HRV) is a strong predictor of mortality in patients postinfarction or with heart failure, but also in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. The evaluation of the cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in diabetes mellitus is done with... View full abstract»

    Epidemic propagation models have been applied on modeling the propagation of viruses. Some mathematical models and computer simulations deal with the spatial distribution of susceptible along a line, across a lattice or over a network to overcome the inaccuracies due to the assumption of random mixing of the population. The viral propagation is determined by intrinsic characteristics of the networ... View full abstract»

    The coordinated and simultaneous movements of the scapula, clavicle and humerus are necessary for full elevation and normal function of the upper limb. The morphologic structure of the shoulder can be represented, at a first approximation, by a set of geometrical finite elements. Three representations of bone contours are used to model the shoulder mechanism. The development of this type of applic... View full abstract»
