The aim of this work is to design a semi-automatic application that can be used as an aid by the doctors for smoothly conducting Hammersmith Infant Neurological Exam­ ination (IDNE). A simplified version of the examination which provides a quantitative neurological assessment is used to de­ sign the application. The application includes a methodology of(More)
This paper presents image and video analysis based schemes to automate the process of adductors angle measurement which is carried out on infants as a part of Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination (HINE). Image segmentation, thinning and feature point based object tracking are used for automating the analysis. Segmentation outputs are processed with a(More)
Detection of non-cerebral activities or artifacts, intermixed within the background EEG, is essential to discard them from subsequent pattern analysis. The problem is much harder in neonatal EEG, where the background EEG contains spikes, waves, and rapid fluctuations in amplitude and frequency. Existing artifact detection methods are mostly limited to(More)
Although sepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among newborns in resource-poor countries, little data are available from rural areas on culture-proven sepsis. The aim of the present study was to provide information in this regard. The study reports results on the incidence and aetiology of neonatal sepsis cases admitted to a facility in a rural(More)
Video object tracking plays an important role in many computer vision-aided applications. This paper presents a novel multi-path analysis-based video object tracking algorithm. Trajectory of the moving object is refined using a Kalman filter-based prediction method. The proposed algorithm has been used successfully to analyze one of the complex infant(More)
Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination (HINE) is a set of tests used for grading neurological development of infants on a scale of 0 to 3. These tests help in assessing neurophysiological development of babies, especially preterm infants who are born before (the fetus reaches) the gestational age of 36 weeks. Such tests are often conducted in the(More)
Ventriculomegaly is the most commonly detected abnormality in neonatal brain. It can be defined as a condition when the human brain ventricle system becomes dilated. This in turn increases the intracranial pressure inside the skull resulting in progressive enlargement of the head. Sometimes it may also cause mental disability or death. For these reasons(More)
