Motion artifacts have been identified as a problem in medical tomography systems. While computed tomography (CT) imaging has been getting faster, there remains a need to detect and compensate for motions in clinical follow-up of neurological patients (multiple sclerosis, tumors, stroke, etc.), in cardiac imaging, and in any area in which failing to detect a(More)
Cerebral palsy (CP) develops as a consequence of white matter damage (WMD) in approximately one out of every 10 very preterm infants. Ultrasound (US) is widely used to screen for a variety of brain injuries in this patient population, but early US often fails to detect WMD. We hypothesized that quantitative texture measures on US images obtained within one(More)
Hydrocephalus, characterized by increased fluid in the cerebral ventricles, is traditionally evaluated by a visual assessment of serial CT scans. The complex shape of the ventricular system makes accurate visual comparison of CT scans difficult. The current research developed a quantitative method to measure the change in cerebral ventricular volume over(More)
It is known that contracting muscle makes low frequency sound vibrations. Small vibrations of uncertain origin are found over resting muscle. These could be shown to be of muscle origin if they significantly diminish in response to agents expected to decrease muscle activity. Thiopental, propofol, and neuromuscular-junction blocking muscle relaxants have(More)
