This work evaluates the feasibility of real-time wireless video streaming of medical ultrasound signals over 802.11g ad-hoc and 3G cellular broadband networks for disaster relief, rescue, and medical transport applications. Scalable H.264 encoded echocardiographic ultrasound image sequences were transmitted in real-time at specified image resolutions (VGA(More)
We developed a health and wellness smartphone app to support diabetes self-management. The target users are older, less healthy adults with advanced type 2 diabetes. We illustrate the design implications of a health and wellness smartphone app for such users by presenting the process and results of our usability and user experience lab test with our app.
The angle-dependent spectral distortion for an infinite planar interface (IP-ASD) is examined for the case of fluid-fluid and fluid-solid (elastic) interfaces. The results are based on computation of the angular spectrum (plane wave) decomposition of the acoustic pressure field as radiated by an equivalent image source transducer, for each frequency of(More)
In this paper we present a group-wise non-rigid registration/mosaicing algorithm based on block-matching, which is developed within a probabilistic framework. The discrete form of its energy functional is linked to a Markov Random Field (MRF) containing double and triple cliques, which can be effectively optimized using modern MRF optimization algorithms(More)
In-vitro measurements have been carried out for the group velocity and the attenuation, in dB/cm, in cow lung tissue. The velocity and the attenuation were measured both as a function of air content, from 32 to 68%, and as a function of frequency, from 10 to 800 KHz. The group velocity was determined from measurement of the phase difference between the(More)
Diabetic foot ulcers represent a significant health issue. Currently, clinicians and nurses mainly base their wound assessment on visual examination of wound size and healing status, while the patients themselves seldom have an opportunity to play an active role. Hence, a more quantitative and cost-effective examination method that enables the patients and(More)
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive technique well-suited for detecting abnormalities like cysts, lesions and blood clots. In order to use 3D ultrasound to visualize the size and shape of such abnormalities, effective boundary detection methods are needed. A robust boundary detection technique using a nearest neighbor map (NNM) and applicable to(More)
The received electrical echo signal from a pulse-echo system insonifying a planar interface was measured for varying degrees of rms roughness [0 to 0.29 mm (0 to 1.7 lambda)], angles of incidence, theta, (-7 degrees to 7 degrees), and ranges to a planar or focused transducer. The effect of varying theta is quantified in terms of the energy of the received(More)
For part I see ibid., vol.40, no.4, pp.366-372 (1993). In Part I, the encoding of the velocity and range information into the received and demodulated signals based on transmission of coherent repetitive linear sweep signals, was discussed. In the present work, two different implementations of FM Doppler systems that can be used to obtain velocity profiles(More)
Between 1961 and 1986, a number of investigators studied the propagation properties of ultrasound (US) in the lungs. These studies revealed high attenuation levels in the lung tissue at all levels of lung inflation. In contrast, some clinical investigators have, in the past decade, used US at 5 to 7.5 MHz to penetrate the collapsed lung effectively during(More)
