A new method for coronary artery tracking in biplane digital subtraction is presented. The dynamic tracking of nonrigid objects from two views is achieved using a generalization of parametrically deformable models. Three-dimensional (3-D) Fourier descriptors used for shape representation are obtained from the two-dimensional (2-D) descriptors of the(More)
The paper describes a platform developed for the secure management and analysis of medical data and images in a grid environment. Designed for telemedicine and built upon the EGEE gLite middleware and particularly the metadata catalogue AMGA as well as the GridSphere web portal, the platform provides to healthcare professionals the capacity to upload and(More)
In this study, a computational mapping technique was used to examine the three-dimensional profile of the lateral ventricles in autism. T1-weighted three-dimensional magnetic resonance images of the brain were acquired from 20 males with autism (age: 10.1+/-3.5 years) and 22 male control subjects (age: 10.7+/-2.5 years). The lateral ventricles were(More)
Physical training is proved to induce changes in physical capacity and body composition. We propose in this article a fast, unsupervised and fully three-dimensional automatic method to extract muscle and fat volumes from magnetic resonance images of thighs in order to assess these changes. The technique relies on the use of a fuzzy clustering algorithm and(More)
Symptoms of Parkinson's disease can be relieved through deep brain stimulation. This neurosurgical technique relies on high precision positioning of electrodes in specific areas of the basal ganglia and the thalamus. In order to identify these anatomical targets, which are located deep within the brain, we developed a semi-automated method of image(More)
Recent developments of grid services for secured distributed data management open new perspectives for disease surveillance. In this paper, we report on our initiative to develop a surveillance network for breast cancer in the Auvergne region. The network gathers cytopathology laboratories, structures in charge of cancer screening and institutes in charge(More)
The main problem for health professionals and patients in accessing information is that this information is very often distributed over many medical records and locations. This problem is particularly acute in cancerology because patients may be treated for many years and undergo a variety of examinations. Recent advances in technology make it feasible to(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional power studies possess limited ability to assess the performance of cluster detection tests. In particular, they cannot evaluate the accuracy of the cluster location, which is essential in such assessments. Furthermore, they usually estimate power for one or a few particular alternative hypotheses and thus cannot assess performance(More)
