There has been an increased interest in speech pattern analysis applications of Parkinsonism for building predictive telediagnosis and telemonitoring models. For this purpose, we have collected a wide variety of voice samples, including sustained vowels, words, and sentences compiled from a set of speaking exercises for people with Parkinson's disease.(More)
In this study, we present an evaluation of using various methods for face recognition. As feature extracting techniques we benefit from wavelet decomposition and Eigenfaces method which is based on Principal Component Analysis (PCA). After generating feature vectors, distance classifier and Support Vector Machines (SVMs) are used for classification step. We(More)
Breast cancer continues to be a significant public health problem in the world. The diagnosing mammography method is the most effective technology for early detection of the breast cancer. However, in some cases, it is difficult for radiologists to detect the typical diagnostic signs, such as masses and microcalcifications on the mammograms. This paper(More)
MOTIVATION Gene therapy aims at using viral vectors for attaching helpful genetic code to target genes. Therefore, it is of great importance to develop methods that can discover significant patterns around viral integration sites. Canonical correlation analysis is an unsupervised statistical tool that is used to describe the relations between two related(More)
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative motor system disorder, which also causes vocal impairments for most of its patients. A number of recent exploratory studies have evaluated the feasibility of detecting voice disorders by applying data mining tools to acoustic features extracted from speech recordings of patients. Selection of a minimal yet(More)
In this paper, we investigate an approach for classification of mammographic masses as benign or malign. This study relies on a combination of Support Vector Machine (SVM) and wavelet-based subband image decomposition. Decision making was performed in two stages as feature extraction by computing the wavelet coefficients and classification using the(More)
The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the utility of artificial neural networks, in combination with wavelet transforms for the detection of mammogram masses as malign or benign. A total of 45 patients who had breast masses in their mammography were enrolled in the study. The neural network was trained on the wavelet based feature vectors extracted(More)
The purpose of this study is to implement accurate methods of detection and classification of benign and malignant breast masses in mammograms. Our new proposed method, which can be used as a diagnostic tool, is denoted Local Seed Region Growing-Spherical Wavelet Transform (LSRG-SWT), and consists of four steps. The first step is homomorphic filtering for(More)
---------------------------------------------------------------------ABSTRACT-----------------------------------------------------------Wireless Sensor Network consist of large number of sensing devices, which are equipped with limited radio communication capabilities and limited computing which is used for many purposes in the present and the future.(More)
This paper proposes a combination of the Fast Wavelet Transform (FWT) and Adaptive Neuro-fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) methods. The goal is classification of breast masses as benign or malignant by applying this method consecutively to the extracted features of the Region of Interests (ROIs). This study is developed to decrease the number of the missing(More)
