    In this paper, we propose a combination of mean-shift-based tracking processes to establish migrating cell trajectories through in vitro phase-contrast video microscopy. After a recapitulation on how the mean-shift algorithm permits efficient object tracking we describe the proposed extension and apply it to the in vitro cell tracking problem. In this application, the cells are unmarked (i.e., no ... View full abstract»

    Spatial independent component analysis (ICA) was used to study the temporal stationarity and spatial consistency of structured functional MRI (fMRI) noise. Spatial correlations have been used in the past to generate filters for the removal of structured noise for each time-course in an fMRI dataset. It would be beneficial to produce a multivariate filter based on the same principles. ICA is examin... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new three-dimensional (3-D) wavelet-based scalable lossless coding scheme for compression of volumetric medical images. Aiming to improve the productivity of radiologists and the cost-effectiveness of the system, we strive to achieve high decoder throughput, random access to coded data volume, progressive transmission, and high compression ratio in a balanced design approach....

    The human cerebral cortex is a laminar structure about 3 mm thick, and is easily visualized with current magnetic resonance (MR) technology. The thickness of the cortex varies locally by region, and is likely to be influenced by such factors as development, disease and aging. Thus, accurate measurements of local cortical thickness are likely to be of interest to other researchers. We develop a par... View full abstract»

  • Despeckling of medical ultrasound images using data and rate adaptive lossy compression

    A novel technique for despeckling the medical ultrasound images using lossy compression is presented. The logarithm of the input image is first transformed to the multiscale wavelet domain. It is then shown that the subband coefficients of the log-transformed ultrasound image can be successfully modeled using the generalized Laplacian distribution. Based on this modeling, a simple adaptation of th... View full abstract»

    We present the development and validation of an image based speckle tracking methodology, for determining temporal two-dimensional (2-D) axial and lateral displacement and strain fields from ultrasound video streams. We refine a multiple scale region matching approach incorporating novel solutions to known speckle tracking problems. Key contributions include automatic similarity measure selection ...

    This paper reports a novel method to track brain shift using a laser-range scanner (LRS) and nonrigid registration techniques. The LRS used in this paper is capable of generating textured point-clouds describing the surface geometry/intensity pattern of the brain as presented during cranial surgery. Using serial LRS acquisitions of the brain's surface and two-dimensional (2-D) nonrigid image regis... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a two-stage algorithm for mammogram registration, the geometrical alignment of mammogram sequences. The rationale behind this paper stems from the intrinsic difficulties in comparing mammogram sequences. Mammogram comparison is a valuable tool in national breast screening programs as well as in frequent monitoring and hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The method presente... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) phase correction method. The linear phase correction method using autocorrelation proposed by Ahn and Cho (AC method) is extended to handle nonlinear terms, which are often important for polynomial expansion of phase variation in MRI. The polynomial coefficients are statistically determined from a cascade series of n-pixel-shift rotational... View full abstract»

  • Rapid gridding reconstruction with a minimal oversampling ratio

    Reconstruction of magnetic resonance images from data not falling on a Cartesian grid is a Fourier inversion problem typically solved using convolution interpolation, also known as gridding. Gridding is simple and robust and has parameters, the grid oversampling ratio and the kernel width, that can be used to trade accuracy for computational memory and time reductions. We have found that significa... View full abstract»

    A new scheme for denoising magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) signals is presented. This scheme is based on projecting noisy MRS signals in different domains, consecutively, and performing noise filtering operations in these domains. The domains are chosen such that the noise portion, which is inseparable from the desired signal in one domain, is separable in the other. A set of stable, linear,... View full abstract»

    Thermoacoustic tomography (TAT) is an emerging imaging technique with potential for a wide range of biomedical imaging applications. In this correspondence, we propose an infinite family of weighted expectation maximization (EM) algorithms for reconstruction of images from temporally truncated TAT measurement data. The weighted EM algorithms are equivalent mathematically to the conventional EM alg... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (T-MI) encourages the submission of manuscripts on imaging of body structures, morphology and function, and imaging of microscopic biological entities. The journal publishes original contributions on medical imaging achieved by various modalities, such as ultrasound, X-rays (including CT) magnetic resonance, radionuclides, microwaves, and light, as well as medical image processing and analysis, visualization, pattern recognition, and related methods. Studies involving highly technical perspectives are most welcome. The journal focuses on a unified common ground where instrumentation, systems, components, hardware and software, mathematics and physics contribute to the studies.
