In this paper, we proposed an algorithm for arrhythmia classification, which is associated with the reduction of feature dimensions by linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and a support vector machine (SVM) based classifier. Seventeen original input features were extracted from preprocessed signals by wavelet transform, and attempts were then made to reduce(More)
The purpose of this paper is to estimate emotions using Neural network and the changes in activities of autonomic nervous system(ANS). Since ANS cannot be controlled artificially, we presumed that the changes in emotions would be reflected to the changes in ANS. In order to observe those changes, we provided the subjects with some video clips which can(More)
The delay performance of compression algorithms is particularly important when time-critical data transmission is required. In this paper, we propose a wavelet-based electrocardiogram (ECG) compression algorithm with a low delay property for instantaneous, continuous ECG transmission suitable for telecardiology applications over a wireless network. The(More)
The aim of this study was to design a tele-radiology imaging system for rapid emergency care via mobile networks and to assess the diagnostic feasibility of the Joint Photographic Experts Group 2000 (JPEG2000) radiological imaging using portable devices. Rapid patient information and image exchange is helpful to make clinical decisions. We assessed the(More)
The efficient compression of radiographic images is of importance for improved storage and network utilization in support of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) applications. The DICOM Working Group 4 adopted JPEG2000 as an additional compression standard in Supplement 61 over the existing JPEG. The wavelet-based JPEG2000 can achieve higher(More)
The image display is an important component of the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) and of digital imaging in general. In this paper, we assess the display performance of 32 different flat panel LCD devices, in terms of their reflection, luminance response, luminance uniformity, resolution, noise, veiling glare and color uniformity included(More)
Excessive amount of visceral fat is considered as a crucial indicator for the metabolic syndrome (MS). Visceral fat area (VFA) at the umbilicus level measured by CT is adopted as the gold standard, but it has many limitations. Recently, Application of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) for measuring VFA is widely used. However, the correlation between(More)
Remote teleconsultation by specialists is important for timely, correct, and specialized emergency surgical and medical decision making. In this paper, we designed a new personal digital assistant (PDA)-phone-based emergency teleradiology system by combining cellular communication with Bluetooth-interfaced local wireless links. The mobility and portability(More)
