    This talk is oriented towards functional diffuse optical imaging and spectroscopy of tissue. My focus will be on several recent studies. For our breast cancer research, I will summarize the tumor contrast results obtained in a pilot clinical investigation employing diffuse optical tomography (DOT). I will present first in-vivo fluorescence diffuse optical tomography (FDOT) of breast cancer [1]. I ... View full abstract»

    There is a need for an imaging technique that can reliably identify and characterize the vulnerability of atherosclerotic plaques. Catheter-based intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is one of the imaging tools of the clinical evaluation of atherosclerosis. However, histopathological information obtained with IVUS imaging is limited. We present and discuss the applicability of a combined intravascular ... View full abstract»

    In many diagnostic fields a massive trend towards bringing the diagnostic procedure closer to the patient in space and time can be observed. This so-called Point-of-Care diagnostics (POC) greatly benefits from recent advances in microfabrication technologies, namely in the field of polymer based microsystems [1]. This is the more important as there is a massive pressure in reducing cost in all asp... View full abstract»

    Band-pass, Kalman, and adaptive filters are used for removal of resuscitation artifacts from human ECG signals. A database of separately recorded human ECG and animal resuscitation artifact signals is used for evaluation of the methods. The considered performance criterion is the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement, defined as the ratio of the SNRs of the filtered signal and the given ECG sign... View full abstract»

  • Low complexity tracking for long term monitoring of heart sounds

    This paper describes a novel framework for tracking heart sounds. For a given heart sound component (e.g. S1) candidate features (e.g. peaks) are mapped to states and assigned appropriate local scores. A low complexity dynamic programming based algorithm is developed to select the largest most consistent feature from the candidate features. This algorithm is also capable of detecting multiple simu... View full abstract»
