PURPOSE To automate time (and motion) studies of major trauma resuscitations. TECHNIQUES We modified an existing time-motion study technique based on time-encoded videotaping for medical imaging workstation human factors analysis. Videotapes were recorded of the trauma room during normal clinical activity using an unobtrusive mounted camera. The(More)
Digital photography of postmortem brain slices was compared with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for morphological analysis of human brain atrophy. In this study, we used two human brains obtained at autopsy: a cognitively defined nondemented control (70-yr-old male) and a demented Alzheimer's disease (AD) subject (82-yr-old female). For each of two(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the results or two methods of histogram matching and two methods of histogram flattening for their ability to correct for contrast variations in digital dental images. METHODS A custom-built, aluminium stepwedge with 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 mm steps was placed over Ektaspeed films and exposed for 0.06, 0.12 and 0.25 s, respectively.(More)
Evaluation of coronary anatomy with conventional coronary angiography requires visual integration of multiple images from different viewing orientations to generate a mental interpretation of three-dimensional (3D) structure. The epicardial surface is, in many ways, analogous to the earth's surface topography and may be effectively depicted using(More)
