A new automatic computer program, to remove misregistration artifacts secondary to motions such as rotation, contraction and relaxation of the body, has been developed. This program is called automatic reregistration and consists of determination of distortion vectors of corresponding segments of the mask and live images by detection of the peak value of(More)
Conventional X-ray tomosynthesis with film can provide a sagittal slice image with a single scan. This technique has the advantage of enabling reconstruction of a sagittal slice which is difficult to obtain from the X-ray CT system. However, only an image on the focal plane is obtained by a single scan. Furthermore, the image is degraded by superimpositions(More)
In this paper, we show techniques to examine the stationarity and the normality of time series as well as results obtained by applying these techniques to EEG data during sleep stages. Many statistical analyses of the EEG data are based on the assumption that the EEG data are stationary and normally distributed. However, the problem is to know the length of(More)
Biomedical data, such as EEG, EMG and neural impulse sequences, are regarded as the stochastic phenomena of biological systems, and the statistical properties of such time series are often examined. Most of the statistical analysis processed in the frequency and the time domain are based on the assumption that the time series is weakly stationary and(More)
A data-compression algorithm for digital Holter recording using artificial neural networks (ANNs) is described. A three-layer ANN that has a hidden layer with a few units is used to extract features of the ECG (electrocardiogram) waveform as a function of the activation levels of the hidden layer units. The number of output and input units is the same. The(More)

A detection algorithm for the first and the second heart sounds, which is one of the most important problems in an automatic diagnostic system for phonocardiograms, has been developed. It is based on the frequency-domain characteristics of heart sounds analysed by a linear-prediction method. The performance of the algorithm has been evaluated in 187 samples(More)
The authors investigated the usefulness of the Karhunen-Loeve technique applied to body surface maps to study regional cardiac excitation. Eigenvectors were derived from the body surface potential maps of 120 healthy adults using the Karhunen-Loeve expansion theory. Then, in the maps of various types of ventricular hypertrophy, each eigenvector coefficient(More)

An absolute calibration by means of the reciprocity theorem has been applied to the calibration of contact-type phonocardiographic microphones. The methods are discussed in detail and examples of the results are presented. Human chest wall vibrations have been measured with these calibrated microphones and the results are also presented. Un calibrage absolu(More)
Body surface potential maps differ considerably in their pattern even among normals, depending upon torso configuration. Thus individualized modelling of the heart-torso model is certainly desirable for a forward problem if it can be achieved without much effort. In this paper such a heart-torso model which is flexible enough to adapt to different body(More)
