    In this paper, we design a multiprocessor strategy that exploits the computational characteristics of the algorithms used for biological sequence comparison proposed in the literature. We employ divisible load theory (DLT) that is suitable for handling large scale processing on network based systems. For the first time in the domain of DLT, the problem of aligning biological sequences is attempted... View full abstract»

    The public long-term care insurance program for the elderly in Japan set out in 2000 toward establishing a new system whereby citizens can be assured that they will receive care and be supported by the society as a whole. The insurance program includes computer-aided certification processes to estimate the needs for nursing care for clients. In this work, we show the applicability of an adaptive l...

    This paper presents an automated algorithm to determine DNA fragment size from atomic force microscope images and to extract the molecular profiles. The sizing of DNA fragments is a widely used procedure for investigating the physical properties of individual or protein-bound DNA molecules. Several atomic force microscope (AFM) real and computer-generated images were tested for different pixel and... View full abstract»

    Pharmacovigilance aims at detecting the adverse effects of marketed drugs. It is generally based on the spontaneous reporting of events thought to be the adverse effects of drugs. Spontaneous Reporting Systems (SRSs) supply huge databases that pharmacovigilance experts cannot exhaustively exploit without data mining tools. Data mining methods; i.e., statistical association measures in conjunction ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a multiagent system (MAS) is presented, aiming to enhance monitoring, surveillance, and educational services of a generic medical contact center (MCC) for chronic disease management. In such a home-care scenario, a persistent need arises for efficiently monitoring the patient contacts and the MCC's functionality, in order to effectively manage and interpret the large volume of medic...

    Information technology offers great opportunities for supporting radiologists' expertise in decision support and training. However, this task is challenging due to difficulties in articulating and modeling visual patterns of abnormalities in a computational way. To address these issues, well established approaches to content management and image retrieval have been studied and applied to assist ph... View full abstract»

    It is accepted that digital watermarking is quite relevant in medical imaging. However, due to the special nature of clinical practice, it is often required that watermarking not introduce irreversible distortions to medical images. The electronic clinical atlas has such a need of "lossless" watermarking. We present two tailored reversible watermarking schemes for the clinical atlas by exploiting ... View full abstract»

    A web-based database system for intelligent remote monitoring of an artificial heart has been developed. It is important for patients with an artificial heart implant to be discharged from the hospital after an appropriate stabilization period for better recovery and quality of life. Reliable continuous remote monitoring systems for these patients with life support devices are gaining practical me... View full abstract»
