In this paper, a fully automated method for segmenting Left Ventricle (LV) in echocardiography images is proposed. A new method named active ellipse model is developed to automatically find the best ellipse inside the LV chamber without intervention of any specialist. A modified B-Spline Snake algorithm is used to segment the LV chamber in which the initial(More)
This paper presents a study investigating the potential of artiicial neural networks (ANN's) for the classiication and segmentation of magnetic resonance (MR) images of the human brain. In this study, we present the application of a Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) Artiicial Neural Network (ANN) for the multispectral supervised classiication of MR images.(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous functional genomics approaches have been developed to study the model organism yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, with the aim of systematically understanding the biology of the cell. Some of these techniques are based on yeast growth differences under different conditions, such as those generated by gene mutations, chemicals or both.(More)
PURPOSE Compensation for brain shift is often necessary for image-guided neurosurgery, requiring registration of intra-operative ultrasound (US) images with preoperative magnetic resonance images (MRI). A new image similarity measure based on residual complexity (RC) to overcome challenges of registration of intra-operative US and preoperative MR images was(More)
PURPOSE A fast and robust algorithm was developed for automatic segmentation of the left ventricular endocardial boundary in echocardiographic images. The method was applied to calculate left ventricular volume and ejection fraction estimation. METHODS A fast adaptive B-spline snake algorithm that resolves the computational concerns of conventional active(More)
Previous approaches to texture analysis and segmentation pe$orm multi-channel filtering by applying a set of filters in frequency domain or a set of masks in spatialdomain. In this paper we describe a texture segmentation algorithm based on multi-channel filtering in conjunction with neural networks for feature extraction and segmentation. The features(More)
A fast expert system for electrocardiogram (ECG) arrhythmia detection has been designed in this study. Selecting proper wavelet details, the ECG signals are denoised and beat locations are detected. Beat locations are later used to locate the peaks of the individual waves present in each cardiac cycle. Onsets and offsets of the P and T waves are also(More)
