A computational framework is presented, based on statistical shape modelling, for construction of race-specific organ models for internal radionuclide dosimetry and other nuclear-medicine applications. This approach was applied to the construction of a Japanese liver phantom, using the liver of the digital Zubal phantom as the template and 35 liver computed(More)
Magnetic field generated by active neurons has recently been considered to determine location of neuronal activity directly with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but controversial results have been reported about detection of such small magnetic fields. In this study, multiple neuronal morphologies of rat tissue were modeled to investigate better(More)
Liver-shape analysis and quantification is still an open research subject. Quantitative assessment of the liver is of clinical importance in various procedures such as diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring. Liver-shape classification is of clinical importance for corresponding intra-subject and inter-subject studies. In this research, we propose a(More)
Purpose Quantification of teeth is of clinical importance for various computer assisted procedures such as dental implant, orthodontic planning, face, jaw and cosmetic surgeries. In this regard, segmentation is a major step. Methods In this paper, we propose a method for segmen-tation of teeth in volumetric computed tomography (CT) data using panoramic(More)
Digital Forensics focuses on the collection of evidence from the volatile and non-volatile memory of a computer-based system, such as the hard disk and the RAM content. Needless to say, hard disk data are crucial in the investigation, but whether hard disk data collection is possible or not depends on the features of the case, and whether the forensics(More)
PURPOSE Teeth arrangement is essential in face ergonomics and healthiness. In addition, they play key roles in forensic medicine. Various computer-assisted procedures for medical application in quantitative dentistry require automatic classification and numbering of teeth in dental images. METHOD In this paper, we propose a multi-stage technique to(More)
A computational framework is presented for 3-D liver shape approximation and characterization in order to determine the accuracy of shape reconstruction via Spherical Harmonics expansion. Spherical Harmonics is a powerful mathematical tool for expanding the shape. But in medical domain, livers have very variation geometry, in shape, size, and volume. In(More)
Magnetic field generated by neuronal activity could alter magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signals but detection of such signal is under debate. Previous researches proposed that magnitude signal change is below current detectable level, but phase signal change (PSC) may be measurable with current MRI systems. Optimal imaging parameters like echo time,(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes oscillations in peripheral arteries. Oscillations of the walls of the brachial arteries of 51 patients were recorded [together with the electrocardiogram (ECG)] by an accelerometer at different cuff pressures. By analyzing the energy of the oscillations in the 30-250 Hz band, 16 of 22 patients with CAD and 26 of 29(More)
