—Electrocardiogram (ECG) segmentation is necessary to help reduce the time consuming task of manually annotating ECG's. Several algorithms have been developed to segment the ECG automatically. We first review several of such methods, and then present a new single lead segmentation method based on Adaptive piecewise constant approximation (APCA) and(More)
In this paper, we present a new approach to deal with the noise inherent in the microarray image processing procedure. We use the denoising capabilities of decimated and undecimated multiwavelet transforms, DMWT and UMWT respectively, for the removal of noise from microarray data. Multiwavelet transforms, with appropriate initialization, provide sparser(More)
Prosopagnosia is one of the many forms of visual associative agnosia, in which familiar faces lose their distinctive association. In the case of prosopagnosia, the ability to recognize familiar faces is lost, due to lesions in the medial occipitotemporal region. In "associative" prosopagnosia, the perceptual system seems adequate to allow for recognition,(More)

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease in western countries. Early detection and diagnosis of CAD is quintessential to preventing mortality and subsequent complications. We believe hemodynamic data derived from patient-specific computational models could facilitate more accurate prediction of the risk of atherosclerosis. We(More)
