Classification of multichannel uterine electromyogram (EMG) signals is addressed. Signals were recorded by a matrix of 16 electrodes. First, signals corresponding to each channel were individually classified using an artificial neural network (ANN) based on radial basis functions (RBF). The results have shown that the classification performance varies from(More)
Frequency-related parameters derived from the uterine electromyogram (EMG) signals are widely used in many pregnancy monitoring and preterm delivery prediction studies. Although they are classical parameters, they are well suited for quantifying uterine EMG signals and have many advantages over amplitude-related parameters. The present work aims to compare(More)
In respect to the main goal of our ongoing work for predicting preterm birth, we analyze in this paper the complexity of the uterine electromyography (EMG) by using the sample entropy (SampEn) algorithm. By considering recent methodological developments, we measure the SampEn over multiple scales using the wavelet packet decomposition method. The results(More)
The purpose of this study is to classify the uterine contractions in the electromyography (EMG) signal. As the frequency content of the contraction changes from one woman to another and during the pregnancy, wavelet decomposition is used to extract the parameters of each contraction, and an unsupervised statistical classification method based on Fisher test(More)
The prevention of preterm labor remains one of the primary goals of obstetric research. One way to achieve this goal effectively is to understand the mechanisms regulating the uterine contractility. Herein, we evaluate the correlation between uterine electrical activities recorded from spatially-distributed regions by calculating the nonlinear regression(More)
In real world applications, a multichannel acquisition system is susceptible of having one or many of its sensors displaced or detached, leading therefore to the loss or corruption of the recorded signals. In this paper, we present a technique for detecting missing or corrupted signals in multichannel recordings. Our approach is based on Higher Order(More)
