Many medical imaging techniques available today generate 4D data sets. One such technique is functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) which aims to determine regions of the brain that are activated due to various cognitive and/or motor functions or sensory stimuli. These data sets often require substantial resources for storage and transmission and(More)
This paper presents a novel technique for image restoration based on nonlinear interpolative vector quantization (NLIVQ). The algorithm performs nonlinear restoration of diffraction-limited images concurrently with quantization. It is trained on image pairs consisting of an original image and its diffraction-limited counterpart. The discrete cosine(More)
3D reconstruction of arterial vessels from planar radiographs obtained at several angles around the object has gained increasing interest. The motivating application has been interventional angiography. In order to obtain a three-dimensional reconstruction from a C-arm mounted X-Ray Image Intensifier (XRII) traditionally the trajectory of the source and the(More)
We present a method for stochastic fiber tract mapping from diffusion tensor MRI (DT-MRI) implemented on graphics hardware. From the simulated fibers we compute a connectivity map that gives an indication of the probability that two points in the dataset are connected by a neuronal fiber path. A Bayesian formulation of the fiber model is given and it is(More)
We introduce a novel unifying approach to jointly estimate the motion and the dynamic images in first pass cardiac per-fusion MR imaging. We formulate the recovery as an energy minimization scheme using a unified objective function that combines data consistency, spatial smoothness, motion and contrast dynamics penalties. We introduce a variable splitting(More)
One of the goals of telemedicine is to enable remote visualization and browsing of medical volumes. There is a need to employ scalable compression schemes and efficient client-server models to obtain interactivity and an enhanced viewing experience. First, we present a scheme that uses JPEG2000 and JPIP (JPEG2000 Interactive Protocol) to transmit data in a(More)
While initial compressed sensing (CS) recovery techniques operated under the implicit assumption that the sparse domain coefficients are independently distributed, recent results have indicated that integrating a statistical or structural dependence model of sparse domain coefficients into CS enhances recovery. In this paper, we present a method for(More)
