— Patients that undergo treatment in the epilepsy clinic Kempenhaeghe in the Netherlands are being monitored with different sensory signals, including audio. In this paper a new patient monitoring system for the detection of epileptic seizures through audio classification is proposed. The proposed system enables automated detection of epileptic seizures,(More)
BACKGROUND Scarring of the liver is the result of prolonged exposure to exogenous or endogenous stimuli. At the onset of fibrosis, quiescent hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) activate and transdifferentiate into matrix producing, myofibroblast-like cells. AIM AND METHODS To identify key players during early HSC activation, gene expression profiling was(More)
BACKGROUND With the introduction of the electronic health record, physiotherapists too are encouraged to store their patient records in a structured digital format. The typical nature of a physiotherapy treatment requires a specific record structure to be implemented, with special attention to user-friendliness and communication with other healthcare(More)
AIM Direct and indirect effects of leptin on hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) have been documented in the literature, whereas little is known about leptin's actions on hepatocytes. Leptin mediates its profibrogenic and proinflammatory effects on HSCs in part through the production of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS). In this study, we focus our(More)
— Early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (PD) is of immense importance, since clinical symptoms do not occur until substantial parts of the brain stem have been irreparably damaged. Recent work suggests that by means of transcranial sonog-raphy (TCS) it is possible to determine the formation of mono-genic forms of parkinsonism at a very early state. In TCS(More)
This paper describes our work concerning densitometry and morphometry of subcellular structures in thin sections. The techniques of automatic image analysis were applied to light and electron microscopic observations of enzymatically stained lysosomes, renal brush borders and mitochondria (in human and rat kidney) and peroxisomes (in human liver). To obtain(More)
OBJECTIVES EBP (evidence-based practice) is becoming the standard paradigm in modern healthcare. Therefore different healthcare providers have the need for easily accessible evidence-based information. The Internet creates new opportunities to fill the gaps in education that are experienced by healthcare workers. Contributing to solutions and filling in the(More)
In this paper, we describe the design, creation and testing of a new Web-Based Electronic Health Record for Out-of-Hours (OOH) use with special emphasis on coding matters. The context is the Belgian health system, in which a patients' health record keeper is a specific GP, to whom the OOH reports, generated by any colleague who meets this patient during(More)
This research explores to what extent Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based information management methods can help to improve efficiency and effectiveness of health services in sub-Saharan hospitals and how clinical information can be made available for secondary use enabling non-redundant reporting of health- and care performance(More)
