Conventional radiological and endoscopic techniques utilizing long tubes were ineffective in visualizing the small bowel mucosa until the development of Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE). WCE is a revolutionary endoscopic technology that can diagnose the complete gastrointestinal (GI) tract. However, the existing capsule technologies are passive, and thus they cannot be navigated to or held in a sp... View full abstract»
Automatic Lung Segmentation with Juxta-Pleural Nodule Identification using Active Contour Model and Bayesian ApproachPublication Year: 2018, Page(s): 1
Objective: Chest computed tomography (CT) images and their quantitative analyses have become increasingly important for a variety of purposes including lung parenchyma density analysis, airway analysis, diaphragm mechanics analysis, and nodule detection for cancer screening. Lung segmentation is an important prerequisite step for automatic image analysis. We propose a novel lung segmentation metho... View full abstract»
A Multi-Anatomical Retinal Structure Segmentation System for Automatic Eye Screening Using Morphological Adaptive Fuzzy ThresholdingPublication Year: 2018, Page(s): 1
Eye exam can be as efficacious as physical one in determining health concerns. Retina screening can be the very first clue to detecting a variety of hidden health issues including pre-diabetes and diabetes. Through the process of clinical diagnosis and prognosis; ophthalmologists rely heavily on the binary segmented version of retina fundus image; where the accuracy of segmented vessels, optic dis...
