  • A hierarchical tissue segmentation approach in brain MRI images

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):1 - 8
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (633 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used approach to obtaining high quality medical images of the brain. Post-processing MRI images with segmentation algorithms chances the visualization and measurement of soft tissues and lesions. Segmented brain images contain information amenable to quantitative analysis (e.g., tissue component percentage in a region of interest (RO])) and diagnostic i... View full abstract»

  • A mathematical model for vocal tracts

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):15 - 20
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This work presents a model for optimizing the relationship between vocal tracts and the fundamental frequency of vowel and consonant fricatives produced by the vocal. To understand the structure of vocal tracts, we should follow a reverse path, in other words, our inverse problem consists of finding the shape of the vocal tracts from the produced sound. Therefore the problem is to determine the ar... View full abstract»

  • Multispectral landsat image classification using fuzzy expert systems

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):21 - 26
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (543 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A hierarchical fuzzy expert system is proposed for multispectral Landsat image classification to overcome difficulties with conventional maximum-likelihood classifier (MLC) based on normal distribution and easily incorporate other collateral data, such as vegetation index, digital elevation model, etc. The hierarchical structure is to reduce fuzzy rules to incorporate as many useful data sources a...

  • Parallel decomposition of decision tables using decision diagrams

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):27 - 30
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (305 KB)

    This paper introduces a new type of functional decompositions for decision tables, which are equivalent to hierarchical representation of decision tablets. This method can be achieved by combining two techniques, decision diagrams and exchanging neighboring variables. Here, decision diagrams are graphical representations of decision tablets. The proposed method is evaluated by applying it to the 1... View full abstract»

  • A novel auto regression and fuzzy-neural combination method to identify cardiovascular dynamics

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):31 - 38
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (635 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper cardiovascular dynamics, which refers to the dynamic relationship among the heart rate (HR), arterial blood pressure (ABP) and instantaneous lung volume (ILV), is identified through a novel combination approach that consists of a set of linear auto-regression (AR) equations and nonlinear fuzzy-neural inference. Based on linear assumption of cardiovascular system, auto-regressive and ... View full abstract»

    When a rupture or blood clot reduces blood flow to an arm of the brain, killing brain cells and disrupting the abilities of functions they control, stroke is said to have occurred. The victims of stroke experience weakness and poor coordination.. These attributes impair their ability to walk and use their hands. Many adults and children are affected by neurological problems that affect their funct... View full abstract»

  • Performance evaluation of linear camera calibration techniques

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (518 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Camera calibration represents an important step in 3U reconstruction process. A lot of linear camera calibration techniques exist which try to compute the camera intrinsic and extrinsic parameters with a close form solution. This close form solution arise form the minimization of a linear cost function. Since the noise in the points' coordinates, the computed parameters are an approximation of the... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (696 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we present a mechanism that allows the coprocessing of video in real-time based into Address-Event-Representation (A ER) convolutions chips. Several software methods fur generating synthetic AEK streams from frames stored in a computer's memory are described and evaluated. Evaluation criteria cover execution time, distribution error and how they perform with two receiver cell models.... View full abstract»

  • Ilmstream: efficient multimedia streaming in decentralised distributed systems

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):63 - 68
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (492 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Using the P2P-Model to implement multimedia streaming has been in the focus of research for some time. Many works have lead to very interesting results in the aspect of load balancing, caching and request scheduling. Only a few of the projects consider the decoupling of the neighbourhood relationship of the overlay network and the topology of the underlying infrastructure. In order to reduce the o...

  • A new measuring method for the forced vital capacity of individual lung lobes using multidetector-row CT

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):69 - 74
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (551 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Forced vital capacity (FVC) of individual lung lobes is important information for thoracic surgeries such as the living-donor lobar lung transplantation. However, conventional methods for measuring the FVC of individual lung lobes have not considered the variation of the labor function among subjects. This paper proposes a new method for measuring the FVC of individual lung lobes using Multidetect... View full abstract»

  • Robust objectsegmentation using low resolution stereo

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):75 - 80
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (547 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Object segmentation based on the joint use of depth and color data produces superior results than can be achieved with either data source alone. Conventional object segmentation methods using depth data give priority to processing speed. So the shape accuracy is not enough to use object-based video coding, or they have some restrictions for background and camera movement. In this paper, we propose... View full abstract»

  • Long field-of-view MRI using continuous table motion

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):81 - 86
    Cited by:  Patents (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (505 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A method is presented for formation of an MK image of an arbitrarily long object. This is done by translating the object continuously through the magnetically homogenous volume of the MRI scanner, acquiring data during table motion, and accounting during the reconstruction for the relative displacement of the object for each cach measurement. The method is applied to MR imaging of the blood vessel... View full abstract»

    At present, in our project we are researching about the viability of the enhancement of the basic telecontrol information supplied by SCADA systems by adding multimedia content. SIP is a simple and light protocol, with client-server architecture, which allows to achieve voice and video communications through a data IP network, in similar way as the well-known and widespread HTTP protocol works. So... View full abstract»
