    The conduction velocity of myoelectric potential along muscle fiber is known to be an index of the degree of muscular fatigue or muscular disease. When detecting the myoelectric potential by means of surface electrodes, the conduction velocity must be extracted from an apparently random wave of a myoelectric signal. In this paper, a method for determining conduction velocity is proposed based upon... View full abstract»

    Many problems inherent in signal acquisition using laboratory minicomputers are overcome by using a high-speed data acquisition subsystem incorporating a large buffer memory. A structured systems development methodology details the design stages of this subsystem and its interfaces. Key to implementation of the design is a dual-port solid-state disk (extended memory unit). The subsystem operates a... View full abstract»

    Digital low-pass differentiation is often required in processing various biological or biomechanical data. However, both the nature of biological signals and the use of micro-or minicomputers in such applications imply the need for simple, low-order, and fast differentiation methods, rather than sophisticated high-order algorithms. Responding to this need, we investigate here the low-pass first- a... View full abstract»

  • Topographic Display and Quantitative Analysis of Blood Flow Marker Distribution in Normal and Infarcted Hearts

    Computer-based image processing methods have been applied to describe blood flow marker distribution in ischemic and nonischemic hearts. The processing begins with digitization of flow marker images derived from a heart slice containing the marker. Then, amplitude bands corresponding to intensity ranges of the indicator are created by Fourier-based filtration and amplitude mapping which together r... View full abstract»

    A simulation study of the accuracy of the single moving dipole (SMD) cardiac representation was done using a realistic computer model of the human torso. This model included regions of different electrical conductivities such as the lungs and the intraventricular blood masses. Dipolar potential distributions generated on the surface of this model were sampled with different electrode arrangements ... View full abstract»

    A 3.5 MHz phased array has been developed for imaging the heart through the esophagus. The ultrasonic probe is fitted on the distal end of an Olympus gastroscope. Transesophageal images of the heart were obtained on ten patients. This paper describes the design and realization of the phased array and presents some clinical results obtained on patients.
