OBJECTIVE To investigate machine learning for linking image content, human perception, cognition, and error in the diagnostic interpretation of mammograms. METHODS Gaze data and diagnostic decisions were collected from three breast imaging radiologists and three radiology residents who reviewed 20 screening mammograms while wearing a head-mounted(More)
In this study, we aim to determine if iris recognition accuracy might be improved by correcting for the refractive effects of the human eye when the optical axes of the eye and camera are misaligned. We undertake this investigation using an anatomically-approximated, three-dimensional model of the human eye and ray-tracing. We generate synthetic iris(More)
Three-wavelength digital holography is applied to obtain surface height measurements over several microns of range, while simultaneously maintaining the low noise precision of the single wavelength phase measurement. The precision is preserved by the use of intermediate synthetic wavelength steps generated from the three wavelengths and the use of(More)
The first and perhaps most important phase of a surgical procedure is the insertion of an intravenous (IV) catheter. Currently, this is performed manually by trained personnel. In some visions of future operating rooms, however, this process is to be replaced by an automated system. Experiments to determine the best NIR wavelengths to optimize vein contrast(More)
In this work we propose a method to simulate the expected, i.e. seen by a camera, multispectral reflectance images of a large skin surface area by combining Monte Carlo light propagation model and realistic tissue modeling based on three dimensional data acquisition of human body areas. In particular, we aim to simulate more accurately light transport in(More)
Spatiotemporal analytics derived from large-scale analysis of satellite imagery is a key component in the models used for global population mapping, risk analysis, and critical infrastructure assessment. Making informed national-level decisions based on image derived analytics require processing petabytes of high resolution satellite image data. The(More)
In this paper, we present a 3D light propagation model to simulate multispectral reflectance images of large skin surface areas. In particular, we aim to simulate more accurately the effects of various physiological properties of the skin in the case of subcutaneous vein imaging compared to existing models. Our method combines a Monte Carlo light(More)
In a telemedicine environment for retinopathy screening, a quality check is needed on initial input images to ensure sufficient clarity for proper diagnosis. This is true whether the system uses human screeners or automated software for diagnosis. We present a method for the detection of flash artifacts found in retina images. We have collected a set of(More)
