Early detection of pulmonary nodules is extremely important for the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. In this study, a new classification approach for pulmonary nodules from CT imagery is presented by using hybrid features. Four different methods are introduced for the proposed system. The overall detection performance is evaluated using various(More)
We explore the effect of using bagged decision tree (BDT) as an ensemble learning method with proposed time-domain feature extraction methods on electrocardiogram (ECG) arrhythmia beat classification comparing with single decision tree (DT) classifier. RR interval is the main property which defines irregular heart rhythm, and its ratio to the previous value(More)
Computer-aided detection systems can help radiologists to detect pulmonary nodules at an early stage. In this paper, a novel Computer-Aided Diagnosis system (CAD) is proposed for the classification of pulmonary nodules as malignant and benign. The proposed CAD system using ensemble learning classifiers, provides an important support to radiologists at the(More)
In this work, a new signal processing method was proposed in order to predict externally applied forces to human hands by deriving a relationship between the surface electromyographic (SEMG) signals and experimentally known forces. This relationship was investigated by analyzing the spectral features of the SEMG signals. SEMG signals were recorded from(More)
BACKGROUND After the release of compressed sensing (CS) theory, reconstruction algorithms from sparse and incomplete data have shown great improvements in diminishing artifacts of missing data. Following this progress, both local and non-local regularization induced iterative reconstructions have been actively used in limited view angle imaging problems. (More)
We present a fractional Gabor expansion on a general, non-rectangular time-frequency lattice. The traditional Gabor expansion represents a signal in terms of time and frequency shifted basis functions, called Gabor logons. This constant-bandwidth analysis results in a fixed, rectangular time frequency plane tiling. Many of the practical signals require a(More)
