The unpredictability of the occurrence of epileptic seizures contributes to the burden of the disease to a major degree. An automatic system that detects seizure onsets would allow patients or the people near them to take appropriate precautions, and could provide more insight into these phenomena, thereby revealing important clinical information. Thus,(More)
PURPOSE The authors propose an algorithm that automatically extracts retinal vasculature and provides a simple measure to correct the extraction. The output of the method is a network of salient points, and blood vessels are drawn by connecting the salient points using a centripetal parameterized Catmull-Rom spline. METHODS The algorithm starts by(More)
Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the regulation of the sinoatrial node, the natural pacemaker of the heart, by the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. Heart rate variability analysis is an important tool to observe the heart's ability to respond to normal regulatory impulses that affect its rhythm. A(More)
Epilepsy is characterized by the spontaneous and unforeseeable occurrence of seizures, during which the perception or behavior of patients is disturbed. An automatic system that detects seizure onsets would allow patients or the people near them to take appropriate precautions, and could provide more insight into these phenomena. The use of non-linear(More)
For many decades correlation and power spectrum have been primary tools for digital signal processing applications in the biomedical area. The information contained in the power spectrum is essentially that of the autocorrelation sequence; which is sufficient for complete statistical descriptions of Gaussian signals of known means. However, there are(More)
Epilepsy is a pathological condition characterized by the spontaneous and unforeseeable occurrence of seizures, during which the perception or behaviour of patients is disturbed. An automatic early detection of the seizure onsets would help the patients and observers to take appropriate precautions. Various methods have been proposed to predict the onset of(More)
Heart rate variability refers to the regulation of the sinoatrial node, the natural pacemaker of the heart by the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. Heart rate variability is important because it provides a window to observe the heart's ability to respond to normal regulatory impulses that affect its rhythm. A(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to establish the in-shoe plantar pressure distribution during normal level walking in type 2 diabetic patients of Chinese, Indian, and Malay descent without clinical evidence of peripheral neuropathy. METHODS Thirty-five patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus without loss of tactile sensation and foot deformities and 38 nondiabetic(More)
