Ischaemic heart failure remains a significant health and economic problem worldwide. This paper presents a user-friendly software system that will form a part of the virtual pathological heart of the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH2) project, currently being developed under the European Commission Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) programme. VPH2 is an(More)
The introduction of integrative approaches to biomedical research (integrative biology, physiome, Virtual Physiological Human, etc.) poses original problems to computer aided medicine: the need to operate with large amounts of data that are strongly heterogeneous in structure, format and even in the knowledge domain that generated them; the need to(More)
A stereo imaging system with six high-resolution cameras (3032 × 2028 pixels) and three flash units was developed to capture the 3D shapes of live pigs. The cameras were arranged in three stereo pods, which captured the side, top and rear views of each pig. The image resolution was 0.4 mm per pixel on the surface of the pig. The system was used to capture(More)
Monitoring the growth of farmed fish is an important task which is currently difficult to carry out. An underwater stereo image analysis technique offers the potential for estimating key dimensions of free-swimming fish, from which the fish mass can be estimated. This paper describes the development of a three-dimensional point distribution model to capture(More)
