Frequently MRI data is characterised by a relatively low signal to noise ratio (SNR) or contrast to noise ratio (CNR). When developing automated Computer Assisted Diagnostic (CAD) techniques the errors introduced by the image noise are not acceptable. Thus, to limit these errors, a solution is to filter the data in order to increase the SNR. More(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to determine the feasibility of using computer-assisted diagnosis (CAD) techniques to automatically identify, localize, and measure body fat tissue from a rapid whole-body MRI examination. CONCLUSION Whole-body MRI in conjunction with CAD allows a fast, automatic, and accurate approach to body fat measurement and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the rate and type of errors in biomedical informatics journal article references. METHODS References in articles from the first 2004 issues of five biomedical informatics journals, Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, Journal of Biomedical Informatics, International Journal of Medical Informatics, Methods of(More)
CONTEXT With the evolution of hip arthroscopy has come an increased recognition of intra-articular hip pathologies and improved techniques for their management. Whereas mechanical problems can often be corrected through surgery, functional deficits must be corrected through the rehabilitation process. Therefore, the evolution of hip arthroscopy has(More)
A comparison paper is presented to evaluate the results from five smoothing filters. The filters are linear, nonlinear isotropic and nonlinear anisotropic designed to smooth homogeneous areas while preserving the higher moments in the data. The methods are outlined and then evaluated on the extent to which edge information is preserved and unwanted noise is(More)
In recent years non-invasive medical diagnostic techniques have been used widely in medical investigations. Among the various imaging modalities available, Magnetic Resonance Imaging is very attractive as it produces multi-slice images where the contrast between various types of body tissues such as muscle, ligaments and fat is well defined. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of occupational keyboard typing on median nerve shape and T2 relaxation and on forearm muscle T2 in professional typists with and without symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. DESIGN Based on the Levine Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptom Severity scale (LCTSS), 12 female professional typist volunteers were divided into(More)
