This paper illustrates different approaches to the analysis of biological signals based on non-linear methods. The performance of such approaches, despite the greater methodological and computational complexity is, in many instances, more successful compared to linear approaches, in enhancing important parameters for both physiological studies and clinical(More)
In this paper, a novel method for the recognition of facial expressions in videos is proposed. The system first extracts the deformed Candide facial grid that corresponds to the facial expression depicted in the video sequence. The mean Euclidean distance of the deformed grids is then calculated to create a new metric multidimensional scaling. The(More)
A pilot prospective follow-up study of the role of the branched chain amino acids as additional therapy to the ketogenic diet was carried out in 17 children, aged between 2 and 7 years, with refractory epilepsy. All of these patients were on the ketogenic diet; none of them was seizure free, while only 13 had more or less benefited from the diet. The(More)
The purpose of this study was the application of both digital three-dimensional image processing and virtual reality techniques in endodontics. Three-dimensional volume representations of 2 teeth from each tooth category, 16 teeth in total, have been reconstructed. All teeth were embedded in polyester resin, and serial cross-sections 0.75-mm thick were(More)
This article presents a novel virtual teeth drilling system designed to aid dentists, dental students, and researchers in getting acquainted with teeth anatomy, the handling of drilling instruments, and the challenges associated with drilling procedures during endodontic therapy. The system is designed to be used for educational and research purposes in(More)
This study describes three methods of computerized three-dimensional reconstruction of the main neurovascular pulpal bundle of human teeth, using serial cross-paraffin sections, digital image processing, and three-dimensional computer graphics. These methods are surface representation, representation by means of a stack of slices, and volume representation.
