The purpose of this study was to develop the tools and the methodology for a systematic analysis of usefulness of adding sonic representation of data, supplementary to visualization. This paper is mainly dedicated various temporal lenses, including the newly developed lenses with variable magnification, proposed as a tool for a better perception of short… (More)
Some preliminary results of a project aiming to develop tools for adding sound associated to medical data are presented. The description of our sonification procedure is followed by two different examples. The first refers to monitoring the heart rate (HR) during exercise, either in clinical settings or in self monitoring conditions. The second example is… (More)
Sonic display of HR changes during exercise helps both the patient and the investigator to better identify the transition from rest values to "exercise" zone. then crossing the "attention" threshold and reaching the "alert" threshold. Three types of sonic display were tested, based on combinations of saccadic sounds, different intensities and different… (More)
Sonic display of ST depression during exercise helps both the patient and the investigator to better identify the transition from normal values to "attention" region and reaching the "alert" threshold. Two types of sonic display were tested, based on combinations of saccadic sounds and different pitch.
This poster presents preliminary results of a project aiming to develop tools for adding sound associated to medical data for potential medical applications. Sonification procedures, the methodology used for testing various sonic representations of ECG, and the results are presented.
The paper refers to our methodology and experience in establishing the content of the course in bioinformatics introduced to the school of "Information Systems in Healthcare" (SIIS), master level. The syllabi of both lectures and laboratory works are presented and discussed.
