Notable Papers and New Directions in Sensors, Signals, and Imaging Informatics
To identify and highlight research papers representing noteworthy developments in signals, sensors, and imaging informatics in 2020, a broad literature search was conducted on PubMed and Scopus databases and the four best papers represent advanced approaches for combining, processing, modeling, and analyzing heterogeneous sensor and imaging data are selected.
High Precision Digitization of Paper-Based ECG Records: A Step Toward Machine Learning
A MATLAB-based tool and algorithm is presented that converts a printed or scanned format of the ECG into a digitized ECG signal that makes it possible to utilize historic ECG signals in machine learning algorithms to identify patterns of heart diseases and aid in the diagnostic and prognostic evaluation of patients with cardiovascular disease.


Deep Learning on 1-D Biosignals: a Taxonomy-based Survey
A large variability of research with respect to data, application, and network topology is demonstrated and future research is expected to focus on the standardization of deep learning architectures and on the optimization of the network parameters to increase performance and robustness.
Defining the biological basis of radiomic phenotypes in lung cancer
It is demonstrated that radiomic approaches permit noninvasive assessment of both molecular and clinical characteristics of tumors, and therefore have the potential to advance clinical decision-making by systematically analyzing standard-of-care medical images.
Quality of Radiomic Features in Glioblastoma Multiforme: Impact of Semi-Automated Tumor Segmentation Software
The study results showed that most of the radiomic features in GBM were highly stable, and certain aspects of feature quality, including NDR and redundancy, need to be assessed for determination of representative signature features before further development of radiomics.
Automated Critical Test Findings Identification and Online Notification System Using Artificial Intelligence in Imaging.
Findings support further investigation of the algorithm in a controlled and prospective clinical setting to determine whether it can independently screen noncontrast-enhanced head CT examinations and notify the interpreting radiologist of critical findings.
Performance of a Deep-Learning Neural Network Model in Assessing Skeletal Maturity on Pediatric Hand Radiographs.
A deep-learning convolutional neural network model can estimate skeletal maturity with accuracy similar to that of an expert radiologist and to that that of existing automated models.
Use of Radiology Procedure Codes in Health Care: The Need for Standardization and Structure.
The role of imaging procedure codes in radiology departments and across the health care enterprise is reviewed, standards for radiology procedure coding are described, and the mechanisms of structured coding systems are reviewed.
Detecting Breathing and Snoring Episodes Using a Wireless Tracheal Sensor—A Feasibility Study
The sensitivity and specificity of a novel wireless system in detecting breathing and snoring episodes during sleep is investigated to open unexplored possibilities in sleep monitoring and study enabling a multinight recording strategy involving the collection and analysis of abundant data from thousands of people.
Automated ECG Noise Detection and Classification System for Unsupervised Healthcare Monitoring
A novel unified framework for automatic detection, localization, and classification of single and combined ECG noises not only achieves better noise detection and classification rates than the current state-of-the-art methods but also accurately localizes short bursts of noises with low endpoint delineation errors.
A Modular Low-Complexity ECG Delineation Algorithm for Real-Time Embedded Systems
This work presents a new modular and low-complexity algorithm for the delineation of the different ECG waves (QRS, P and T peaks, onsets, and end), intended to perform real-time delineation on resource-constrained embedded systems.
