We consider the problem of determining the shear modulus of a linear-elastic, incompressible medium given boundary data and one component of the displacement field in the entire domain. The problem is derived from applications in quantitative elasticity imaging. We pose the problem as one of minimizing a functional and consider the use of gradient-based(More)
We have previously described a new approach to planning treatments for cardiovascular disease, Simulation-Based Medical Planning, whereby a physician utilizes computational tools to construct and evaluate a combined anatomic/physiologic model to predict the outcome of alternative treatment plans for an individual patient. Current systems for(More)
The objective of this study was to apply the method for calculating dental age proposed by Demirjian et al. to a sample of Spanish children, followed by a comparison between their dental and chronological ages. This study also set out to create tables to convert specific dental age using the maturity data from our sample. This study was performed on a(More)
We consider the problem of determining the shape of an object immersed in an acoustic medium from measurements obtained at a distance from the object. We recast this problem as a shape optimization problem where we search for the domain that minimizes a cost function that quantifies the difference between the measured and expected signals. The measured and(More)
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a hereditary bone fragility disorder that in most patients is caused by mutations affecting collagen type I. Their typical oral and craneofacial characteristics (Dentinogenesis imperfecta type I and class III malocclusion), involve the dentist in the multidisciplinary team that treat these patients. It is usual to perform(More)
A new iterative time-reversal algorithm capable of identifying and focusing on multiple scatterers in a relatively small number of iterations is developed. It is recognized that the traditional iterated time-reversal method is based on utilizing power iterations to determine the dominant eigenpairs of the time-reversal operator. The convergence properties(More)
