This paper describes an echocardiogram coding method that takes into account the visualization modes in order to compress efficiently the echocardiogram, a methodology to evaluate compressed echocardiograms, and the evaluation of the compression method using the proposed evaluation methodology. The compression method takes advantage of the particular(More)
This paper introduces a new methodology for compressing ECG signals in an automatic way guaranteeing signal interpretation quality. The approach is based on noise estimation in the ECG signal that is used as a compression threshold in the coding stage. The Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees algorithm is used to code the signal in the wavelet domain.(More)
This paper presents a complete study of wide-area wireless ECG transmission for real-time cardiac tele-monitoring taking into account both technical and clinical aspects, in order to provide recommendations for real-time monitoring considering both channel parameters and the tolerance of cardiologists to the effects of interruptions introduced during(More)
This paper presents a methodology to transmit clinical video over wireless networks in real-time. A 3-D set partitioning in hierarchical trees compression prior to transmission is proposed. In order to guarantee the clinical quality of the compressed video, a clinical evaluation specific to each video modality has to be made. This evaluation indicates the(More)
The ISO/IEEE 11073 (x73) family of standards is a reference frame for medical device interoperability. A draft for an ECG device specialization (ISO/IEEE 11073-10406-d02) has already been presented to the Personal Health Device (PHD) Working Group, and the Standard Communications Protocol for Computer-Assisted ElectroCardioGraphy (SCP-ECG) Standard for(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this work is to contribute to personalized clinical management in home-based telemonitoring scenarios by developing an ontology-driven solution that enables a wide range of remote chronic patients to be monitored at home. METHODS Through three stages, the challenges of integration and management were met through the ontology(More)
PURPOSE This paper presents a three-year teledermatology evaluation experience. The aim is to explain the methodology followed, present the evaluation results, discuss critically the issues that emerged during the experience and report the main lessons learned. METHODS A complete design and evaluation methodology was conducted to fully address significant(More)
This paper proposes an encoding system for 1D biomedical signals that allows embedding metadata and provides security and privacy. The design is based on the analysis of requirements for secure and efficient storage, transmission and access to medical tests in e-health environment. This approach uses the 1D SPIHT algorithm to compress 1D biomedical signals(More)
Our interest in the development of transition-metal catalysis for the realisation of vicinal diamination reactions of alkenes started about a decade ago. A number of successful transformations in this area have been developed using palladium catalysis. As a challenging aspect of major importance, the palladium-catalysed coupling of alkyl-nitrogen bonds(More)
