Video-TransUNet: Temporally Blended Vision Transformer for CT VFSS Instance Segmentation

Video-TransUNet, a deep architecture for instance segmentation in medical CT videos constructed by integrating temporal feature blending into the TransUNet deep learning framework, is proposed and it is suggested that the proposed model can indeed enhance the Trans UNet architecture via exploiting temporal information and improving segmentation performance by a significant margin.



Automatic Pharyngeal Phase Recognition in Untrimmed Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study Using Transfer Learning with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks

A deep leaning-based approach using transfer learning with a convolutional neural network (CNN) that automatically annotates pharyngeal phase frames in untrimmed VFSS videos such that frames need not be searched manually is presented.

Rethinking the Inception Architecture for Computer Vision

This work is exploring ways to scale up networks in ways that aim at utilizing the added computation as efficiently as possible by suitably factorized convolutions and aggressive regularization.

Reference Values for Healthy Swallowing Across the Range From Thin to Extremely Thick Liquids

Purpose Thickened liquids are frequently used as an intervention for dysphagia, but gaps persist in our understanding of variations in swallowing behavior based on incremental thickening of liquids.

Online Learning for the Hyoid Bone Tracking During Swallowing With Neck Movement Adjustment Using Semantic Segmentation

The results show that the proposed method can track the hyoid bone robustly compared to the previous methods as measured by a success plot of one-pass evaluation and the proposed semantic segmentation method achieved the highest dice coefficient for the hyoids bone and the cervical vertebrae.

Automatic Detection of the Pharyngeal Phase in Raw Videos for the Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study Using Efficient Data Collection and 3D Convolutional Networks †

A novel approach that uses 3D convolutional networks to detect the pharyngeal phase in raw VFSS videos without manual annotations is presented and it is concluded that the proposed method greatly reduces the examination time of the VF SS images with a low miss rate.

Computational Deglutition: Using Signal- and Image-Processing Methods to Understand Swallowing and Associated Disorders [Life Sciences]

The signs and symptoms of dysphagia range from anterior loss of food while eating, difficulty chewing, and subjective difficulty swallowing food or liquids to choking or coughing before, during, or after eating because of impaired clearance of swallowed material from the throat into the digestive system.

Automatic hyoid bone detection in fluoroscopic images using deep learning

This study proposes a single shot multibox detector, a deep convolutional neural network, which is employed to detect and classify the location of the hyoid bone in a frame, and shows that it can outperform other auto-detection algorithms.

Development of International Terminology and Definitions for Texture-Modified Foods and Thickened Fluids Used in Dysphagia Management: The IDDSI Framework

The IDDSI Framework involves a continuum of 8 levels identified by numbers, text labels, color codes, definitions, and measurement methods and is recommended for implementation throughout the world.

Determining the Relationship Between Hyoid Bone Kinematics and Airway Protection in Swallowing

Although reduced anterior hyoid peak position and speed are associated with penetration–aspiration on thin liquids, these measures do not independently account for penetration– aspiration when considered in conjunction with measures of LVC.
