This paper proposes a plane detection algorithm from stereo camera depth data, using it to find the ground plane. The proposed algorithm ran at 30 frames per second and can successfully detect a ground plane. A simple PID wheelchair controller is implemented to correct for any heading adjustment if required based on ground plane geometries with respect to(More)
The desire to understand normal and disordered human brain function of upright, moving persons in natural environments motivates the development of the ambulatory micro-dose brain PET imager (AMPET). An ideal system would be light weight but with high sensitivity and spatial resolution, although these requirements are often in conflict with each other. One(More)
An accurate system matrix is essential in positron emission tomography (PET) for reconstructing high quality images. To reduce storage size and image reconstruction time, we factor the system matrix into a product of a geometry projection matrix and a sinogram blurring matrix. The geometric projection matrix is computed analytically and the sinogram(More)
PET image reconstruction is challenging due to the ill-poseness of the inverse problem and limited number of detected photons. Recently deep neural networks have been widely and successfully used in computer vision tasks and attracted growing interests in medical imaging. In this work, we trained a deep residual convolutional neural network to improve PET(More)
'Open-field' PET, in which an animal is free to move within an enclosed space during imaging, is a very promising advance for neuroscientific research. It provides a key advantage over conventional imaging under anesthesia by enabling functional changes in the brain to be correlated with an animal's behavioural response to environmental or pharmacologic(More)
Spatial resolution is an important metric for performance characterization in PET systems. Measuring spatial resolution is straightforward with a linear reconstruction algorithm, such as filtered backprojection, and can be performed by reconstructing a point source scan and calculating the full-width-at-half-maximum (FWHM) along the principal directions.(More)
