  • Examining fetal heart-rate variability using matching pursuits

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):64 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (920 KB)

    A new approach to time-frequency analysis of fetal heart rate (FHR) variability is the matching pursuit (MP) method. MP analysis is proposed as away to capture complex energy structures ranging from burst-type to continuous activity in the time-frequency plane that other methods such as power-spectrum analysis and wavelet transforms may not detect. This article summarizes previous FHR analysis tec... View full abstract»

  • Who introduced the tetrapolar method for measuring resistance and impedance?

    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (248 KB)

    The technique of using an outer pair of electrodes to inject current and an inner pair of electrodes to measure potential eliminates electrode/electrolyte impedance errors when measuring the resistivity of a conducting substance. A pressing problem of the late 1800s was the accurate measurement of the resistivity of an electrolyte that was placed between a pair of electrodes in a container. Kohlra... View full abstract»

  • Iterative inversion of the Radon transform

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):112 - 117
    Cited by:  Papers (2)  |  Patents (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1088 KB)

    In many problems in the field of medical imaging, one needs to reconstruct a 2D object or image from its projections. This process is equivalent to computing the inverse Radon transform of the projections. This is the basic problem of X-ray tomography, and the imaging step in magnetic resonance imaging can also be so formulated. The authors have recently developed techniques that use wavelets to p...

  • Challenges facing technology assessment in modern health care

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):55 - 59
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (728 KB)

    Clearly, a precise tool does not now exist for making technological assessments. Yet, however imperfect the process might be, technology assessment is a valuable tool for use by doctors, health-care providers, and hospital administrators to control the increasing cost of health care. Technological assessment allows hospitals to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness before the commi... View full abstract»

  • Temporal correlation in cat striate-cortex neural spike trains

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):79 - 87
    Cited by:  Papers (25)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1376 KB)

    The authors draw on point-process theory and wavelet analysis to examine the variability and correlation properties of spike trains from single neurons in the cat striate cortex, under conditions of spontaneous and stimulated (driven) firing. It is not possible to infer the long-term correlation properties of a spike train from measures that reset at short times; thus, often-used spike-train measu... View full abstract»

  • Constrained imaging: overcoming the limitations of the Fourier series

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):126 - 132
    Cited by:  Papers (10)  |  Patents (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1172 KB)

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is usually implemented as a Fourier transform-based technique. During data acquisition, spatially resolved information relating to spin density, relaxation rates, chemical shifts, and other parameters is phase and frequency encoded in the measured data. Image reconstruction is accomplished through the use of the Fourier series model, which can be evaluated efficien... View full abstract»

  • Classifying biosignals with wavelet networks [a method for noninvasive diagnosis]

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):103 - 111
    Cited by:  Papers (63)  |  Patents (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1588 KB)

    In recent years, a particular challenge has arisen in noninvasive medical diagnostic procedures. Because biosignals recorded on the body surface reflect the internal behaviour and status of the organism or its parts, they are ideally suited to provide essential information of these organs to the clinician without any invasive measures. But how are the recorded time courses of the signals to be int... View full abstract»

  • Improving cardiovascular monitoring through modern techniques

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):68 - 78
    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1392 KB)

    This article presents two applications of modern processing techniques for cardiovascular monitoring. These two applications are quite different in terms of theory as well as application, but they nevertheless present similarities. In both cases, the incentive for using new techniques came from the need for higher performance in order to achieve desired goals. The results obtained are not limited ... View full abstract»

    The control of valuable technical information determines its beneficiaries. The “owner” may exploit the information for a profit or share it with colleagues and the general public. When used for a profit, benefits focus on monetary considerations and the narrower interests of the “owner” of the information. When information is in the public domain, benefits extend to everyo...

  • Efficient design of ultrasound true-velocity flow mapping

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):118 - 125
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1260 KB)

    The authors describe the general theory of the classical Doppler technique for flow mapping and show that its main assumptions do not generally hold for ultrasound imaging. They then develop a generalized model for frequency-domain flow mapping in practical ultrasound imaging situations. Using this model, the authors show that it is possible to compute the true velocity from single-aperture config... View full abstract»

    The intelligibility of speech in communication systems is generally reduced by interfering noise. This interference, which can take the form of environmental noise, reverberation, competing speech, or electronic channel noise, reduces intelligibility by masking the signal of interest. The reduction in intelligibility is particularly troublesome for listeners with hearing impairments, who have grea... View full abstract»
