Electronic auscultation is an efficient technique to evaluate the condition of respiratory system using lung sounds. As lung sound signals are non-stationary, the conventional method of frequency analysis is not highly successful in diagnostic classification. This paper deals with a novel method of analysis of lung sound signals using wavelet transform, and(More)
—To represent the large amount of data in the biometric images an efficient feature extraction method is needed. Further biometric image acquisition is subject to deforming processes such as rotation, translation and scaling. Hence it is also required that the image representation be invariant to the deformations and sustain the discriminating features.(More)
Digital VLSI implementation of an auditory filter for speech processor of cochlear implant (CI) is proposed. Optimized design for hardware implementation of the filter with respect to area, power and speed is the significant criterion for the implementation of auditory filter for a CI. A digital filter is designed using the System Generator10.1 through the(More)
The objective of this paper is to reveal the effectiveness of wavelet based tissue texture analysis for microcalcification detection in digitized mammograms using Extreme Learning Machine (ELM). Microcalcifications are tiny deposits of calcium in the breast tissue which are potential indicators for early detection of breast cancer. The dense nature of the(More)
An important approach for describing a region is to quantify its structure content. In this paper, the use of functions for computing texture based on statistical measures is described. Six textural features for mammogram images are defined. The segmentation based on these textures would classify the breast tissue under four categories. The algorithm(More)
The major concern in a Biometric Identification System is its accuracy. In spite of the improvements in image acquisition and image processing techniques, the amount of research still being carried out in person verification and identification show that a recognition system which gives 0% FAR (False Acceptance Rate) and FRR (False Rejection Rate) is still(More)
This paper presents an efficient architecture for various image filtering algorithms and tumor characterization using Xilinx System Generator (XSG). This architecture offers an alternative through a graphical user interface that combines MATLAB, Simulink and XSG and explores important aspects concerned to hardware implementation. Performance of this(More)
An important approach for describing a region is to quantify its structure content. In this paper the use of functions for computing texture based on statistical measures is prescribed. MPM (Maximizer of the posterior margins) algorithm is employed. The segmentation based on texture feature would classify the breast tissue under various categories. The(More)
This paper presents a diagnostic system for classification of cardiac arrhythmia from ECG data, using Logistic Model Tree (LMT) classifier. Clinically useful information in the ECG is found in the intervals and amplitudes of the characteristic waves. Any abnormality in the wave shape and duration of the wave features of the ECG is considered as arrhythmia.(More)
