Although significant progress has been made in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD), further investigation is still needed. The objective of this study was to develop a data mining system using association analysis based on the apriori algorithm for the assessment of heart event related risk factors. The events investigated were:(More)
The objective of this study was to compute reference SEMG values for normal subjects of 13 parameters extracted in the time, frequency and bispectrum domain, from the Biceps Brachii (BB) muscle generated under isometric voluntary contraction (IVC). SEMG signals were recorded from 94 subjects for 5s at 10, 30, 50, 70 and 100% of maximum voluntary contraction(More)
The extraction of multiple features from highresolution ultrasound images of atherosclerotic carotid plaques characterizing the plaque morphology and structure can be used for the retrieval of similar plaques and the identification of individuals with asymptomatic carotid stenosis at risk of stroke. The objective of this work was to develop a computer aided(More)
Complex diseases may be caused by interactions or combined effects between multiple genetic and environmental factors. One of the main limitations of testing for interaction between genetic loci in large whole genome studies is the high computational cost of performing such analyses. In this study a new methodology for interaction testing (commonly referred(More)
The aim of this study was an investigation whether the examined subjects can be classified as normal, myopathic or neuropathic, based on 4-channel surface electromyographic (SEMG) recordings of the biceps brachii muscle recorded at isometric voluntary contractions. Five different force levels were used: 10, 30, 50, 70 and 100 % of maximum voluntary(More)
