    The wavelet transform has a powerful time-frequency analysis and signal-coding tool suitable for use in the manipulation of complex nonstationary signals. This article provides an overview of the emerging role of wavelet-transform analysis in biomedical signal processing and analysis. It also provides a brief overview of the theory of the transform in its two distinct and very different forms: con... View full abstract»

    This paper, proposes a method of voice signal analysis based on predictability measures. The objective is the differentiation of three groups of signals: healthy, nodules on the vocal folds, and Reinke's edema. This method is a slight reformulation of a measure called predictive power (PP) that uses the relative entropy between the signal and its prediction error to capture information about the p...

    Our approach is based on identifying specific characteristics of the arterial blood pressure (ABP) signal. During the development of the algorithm, we examined the signals and tried to extract the features that signals always share with other signals of the same type. These features permit acceptance of a portion of the signal as being part of arterial pressure or reject it as being an artifact. T... View full abstract»

    Breast cancer is a disease that can be treated if detected in its early stages. Microcalcifications are high-frequency components on digital images. A transform that deals with frequency components can be used in trying to detect these objects on the breast image. We used the wavelet transform on the proposed work to detect these elements and to classify the nature of their borders, being smooth o... View full abstract»

    In this work, a method to analyze the time-frequency characteristics to distinguish pathological voices from patients with Reinke's edema and nodules in vocal folds was developed. Daubechies discrete wavelet transform (DWT) components of approximation and detail in convenient scales of frequency for different voice signals were used to analyze the time-frequency signal characteristics. In this wor... View full abstract»

    The dictionary defines an idea as a mental image. However, for an idea to mature, the mental image needs some stimulus. Coupled with the stimulus has to be the motivation to pursue an investigation. Then there is the need for some experiment to explain an observation. Some relevant discoveries of famous people in science and medicine are discussed, as excellent examples of an idea and its maturati... View full abstract»
