The invention is inspired by the desire to understand the opportunities and expectations of developing economies in terms of healthcare. The designed system is a point-of-care (POC) device that can deliver heart-care services to the rural population and bridge the rural-urban divide in healthcare delivery. The product design incorporates several innovations(More)
Microscope optics presents two critical limitations of low depth of field and very low or no depth perception. Due to low depth of field, at high magnification levels microscope cannot adequately focus on the object. This can adversely affect the performance of slide digitization procedure in digital pathology. This paper presents a depth of field extension(More)
— This paper presents an electronic navigation system for visually impaired and blind people (subject). This system understands obstacles around the subject up to 500 cm in front, left and right direction using a network of ultrasonic sensors. It effectively calculates distance of the detected object from the subject and prepares navigation path accordingly(More)
Majority of images in digital pathology require post acquisition adjustments to optimize brightness, contrast, and image visibility. Despite this fact much research effort has not been put in development of customized contrast enhancement techniques for this application. In this respect various contrast enhancement techniques developed for other application(More)
Computer vision systems are being introduced in pre-screening of cervical cytopathology slides to identify samples that require study by cytopathologists. These systems work on the principle of imaging and analysis of cytology features in general and nuclear features in particular. Thus accurate localization and segmentation of the nuclei is crucial for the(More)
This paper presents a fast and accurate auto white balance scheme specifically suited for white balance (WB) correction in digital pathology applications. The scheme uses low-level statistics based technique for illuminant estimation and linear transformation method for image correction. The WB performance of the proposed scheme has been tested in various(More)
Electroencephalography (EEG) is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp of human brain. EEG is most often used to diagnose brain disorders i.e. epilepsy, sleep disorder, coma, brain death etc. EEG signals are frequently contaminated by Eye Blink Artifacts generated due to the opening and closing of eye lids during EEG recording. To analyse(More)
