Detection and Identification of Heart Sounds Using Homomorphic Envelogram and Self-Organizing Probabilistic Model

Abstract

This work presents a novel method for automatic detection and identification of heart sounds. Homomorphic filtering is used to obtain a smooth envelogram of the phonocardiogram, which enables a robust detection of events of interest in heart sound signal. Sequences of features extracted from the detected events are used as observations of a hidden Markov model. It is demonstrated that the task of detection and identification of the major heart sounds can be learned from unlabelled phonocardiograms by an unsupervised training process and without the assistance of any additional synchronizing channels.
