With the widespread use of digital cameras, freehand wound imaging has become common practice in clinical settings. There is however still a demand for a practical tool for accurate wound healing assessment, combining dimensional measurements and tissue classification in a single user-friendly system. We achieved the first part of this objective by(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of UV-visible irradiation on organic carbon concentration, fluorescence intensity and metal transport ability of the natural organic matter (NOM) at fixed pH values and under several types of atmosphere (air, N(2), O(2)). The water samples were obtained from various sampling sites along the Rio Negro (Amazon(More)
This work is part of the ESCALE project dedicated to the design of a complete 3D and color wound assessment tool using a simple free handled digital camera. The first part was concerned with the computation of a 3D model for wound measurements using uncalibrated vision techniques. This paper presents the second part which deals with color classification of(More)
In this paper, after an overview of the literature concerning the imaging technologies applied to skin wounds assessment, we present an original approach to build 3-D models of skin wounds from color images. The method can deal with uncalibrated images acquired with a handheld digital camera with free zooming. Compared with the cumbersome imaging systems(More)
This paper is concerned with the 3D modeling of skin wound using uncalibrated vision techniques for the volumetric assessment of the healing process. We have developed an original approach for matching two color images captured with a free-handled digital camera and generate a semi-dense 3D model. We evaluate the precision of the inferred 3D model by(More)
Quantification and characterization of chronic inputs of trace metals and organic carbon in a coastal Mediterranean area (the city of Marseille) during the dry season was carried out. The 625 km(2) watershed includes two small coastal rivers whose waters are mixed with treated wastewater (TWW) just before their outlet into the sea. Dissolved and particulate(More)
In most soils of the humid tropics, kaolinitic topsoil horizons overlie more gibbsitic horizons. This arrangement cannot be produced simply by leaching. Quantitative measurement of the turnover of chemical elements in the litterfall in an Amazonian ecosystem indicates that the forest cycles a significant amount of elements, particularly silicon. As a(More)
This paper presents the complete 3D and color wound assessment tool, designed using a simple freely handled digital camera inside the ESCALE project. Combining a 3D model of the captured wound images using uncalibrated vision techniques with unsupervised tissue segmentation, it gives access to enhanced tissue classification and measurement. As a result, the(More)
Fluorescent excitation-emission matrices (FEEM) of the fluorescent dissolved organic matter (FDOM) are widely used for DOM characterization and tracing. In this work, a set of FEEM from sampling campaigns in the Sepetiba Bay (Brazil) was decomposed into independent components using the parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) algorithm. Four independent(More)
