  Title Modelling of image-catheter motion for 3-D IVUS Type Journal Article
  Year 2009 Publication Medical image analysis Abbreviated Journal MIA  
  Volume 13 Issue 1 Pages (down) 91-104  
  Keywords Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS); Motion estimation; Motion decomposition; Fourier  
  Abstract Three-dimensional intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) allows to visualize and obtain volumetric measurements of coronary lesions through an exploration of the cross sections and longitudinal views of arteries. However, the visualization and subsequent morpho-geometric measurements in IVUS longitudinal cuts are subject to distortion caused by periodic image/vessel motion around the IVUS catheter. Usually, to overcome the image motion artifact ECG-gating and image-gated approaches are proposed, leading to slowing the pullback acquisition or disregarding part of IVUS data. In this paper, we argue that the image motion is due to 3-D vessel geometry as well as cardiac dynamics, and propose a dynamic model based on the tracking of an elliptical vessel approximation to recover the rigid transformation and align IVUS images without loosing any IVUS data. We report an extensive validation with synthetic simulated data and in vivo IVUS sequences of 30 patients achieving an average reduction of the image artifact of 97% in synthetic data and 79% in real-data. Our study shows that IVUS alignment improves longitudinal analysis of the IVUS data and is a necessary step towards accurate reconstruction and volumetric measurements of 3-D IVUS.

  Title Valoracion de la Funcion del Ventriculo Izquierdo mediante Modelos Regionales Hiperparametricos Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication Revista Española de Cardiologia Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 61 Issue 3 Pages (down) 79  
  Keywords  
  Abstract La mayoría de la enfermedades cardiovasculares afectan a las propiedades contráctiles de la banda ventricular helicoidal. Esto se refleja en una variación del comportamiento normal de la función ventricular. Parámetros locales tales como los strains, o la deformación experimentada por el tejido, son indicadores capaces de detectar anomalías funcionales en territorios específicos. A menudo, dichos parámetros son considerados de forma separada. En este trabajo presentamos un marco computacional (el Dominio Paramétrico Normalizado, DPN) que permite integrarlos en hiperparámetros funcionales y estudiar sus rangos de normalidad. Dichos rangos permiten valorar de forma objetiva la función regional de cualquier nuevo paciente. Para ello, consideramos secuencias de resonancia magnética etiquetada a nivel basal, medio y apical. Los hiperparámetros se obtienen a partir del movimiento intramural del VI estimado mediante el método Harmonic Phase Flow. El DPN se define a partir de en una parametrización del Ventrículo Izquierdo (VI) en sus coordenadas radiales y circunferencial basada en criterios anatómicos. El paso de los hiperparámetros al DPN hace posible la comparación entre distintos pacientes. Los rangos de normalidad se definen mediante análisis estadístico de valores de voluntarios sanos en 45 regiones del DPN a lo largo de 9 fases sistólicas. Se ha usado un conjunto de 19 (14 H; E: 30.7±7.5) voluntarios sanos para crear los patrones de normalidad y se han validado usando 2 controles sanos y 3 pacientes afectados de contractilidad global reducida. Para los controles los resultados regionales se han ajustado dentro de la normalidad, mientras que para los pacientes se han obtenido valores anormales en las zonas descritas, localizando y cuantificando así el diagnóstico empírico.

  Title Uso de recursos virtuales en Aprendizaje Basado en Proyectos. Una experiencia en la asignatura de Graficos por Computador Type Miscellaneous
  Year 2008 Publication Octava Jornada sobre Aprendizaje Cooperativo Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 79–88  
  Keywords  
  Abstract En esta comunicación presentamos una experiencia en Aprendizaje Basado en Proyectos (Project
Based Learning – PBL) realizada los últimos cuatro años (cursos del 2004-05 al 2007-08) en Gráficos
por Computador 2, asignatura optativa de tercer curso de Ingeniería Informática, titulación impartida
en la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería (ETSE) de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona
(UAB).
Fruto de la constante voluntad de mejora de la organización ABP de nuestra asignatura nos decidimos
a utilizar una herramienta LMS (Learning Management System) basada en Moodle y adaptada por
nosotros llamada Caronte para poder gestionar la documentación generada en ABP, y añadir una
componente semipresencial a la asignatura.
En primer lugar se presenta la organización de nuestra asignatura, basada proponer al alumno dos
itinerarios para cursarla: el itinerario ABP y el itinerario basado en clases magistrales i examen que
llamaremos TPPE (Teoría, Problemas, Prácticas, Examen). La dinámica ABP nos genera una cantidad
importante de documentación entre los grupos y el profesor, aparte de el feedback que el profesor
genera a los alumnos.
En la segunda parte del artículo presentamos los espacios docentes electrónicos de ambos itinerarios,
con los que trabajan los alumnos.
Finalmente, mostramos los resultados obtenidos de alumnos matriculados y de encuestas de valoración
realizados por los alumnos para finalmente exponer las conclusiones de estos cuatro años de
experiencia en ABP y en el uso de recursos virtuales en ABP, así como plantear mejoras y temas de
discusión sobre ABP.

  Title Assessing agonist efficacy in an uncertain Em world Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication 40th Keystone Symposia on mollecular and celular biology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 79  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The operational model of agonism has been widely used for the analysis of agonist action since its formulation in 1983. The model includes the Em parameter, which is defined as the maximum response of the system. The methods for Em estimation provide Em values not significantly higher than the maximum responses achieved by full agonists. However, it has been found that that some classes of compounds as, for instance, superagonists and positive allosteric modulators can increase the full agonist maximum response, implying upper limits for Em and thereby posing doubts on the validity of Em estimates. Because of the correlation between Em and operational efficacy, τ, wrong Em estimates will yield wrong τ estimates.
In this presentation, the operational model of agonism and various methods for the simulation of allosteric modulation will be analyzed. Alternatives for curve fitting will be presented and discussed.

  Title A Novel FLDA Formulation for Numerical Stability Analysis Type Book Chapter
  Year 2004 Publication Recent Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 113 Issue Pages (down) 77-84  
  Keywords Supervised Learning; Linear Discriminant Analysis; Numerical Stability; Computer Vision  
  Abstract Fisher Linear Discriminant Analysis (FLDA) is one of the most popular techniques used in classification applying dimensional reduction. The numerical scheme involves the inversion of the within-class scatter matrix, which makes FLDA potentially ill-conditioned when it becomes singular. In this paper we present a novel explicit formulation of FLDA in terms of the eccentricity ratio and eigenvector orientations of the within-class scatter matrix. An analysis of this function will characterize those situations where FLDA response is not reliable because of numerical instability. This can solve common situations of poor classification performance in computer vision.

  Title A Variational Framework for Assessment of the Left Ventricle Motion Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication International Journal Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 3 Issue 6 Pages (down) 76-100  
  Keywords Key words: Left Ventricle Dynamics, Ventricular Torsion, Tagged Magnetic Resonance, Motion Tracking, Variational Framework, Gabor Transform.  
  Abstract Impairment of left ventricular contractility due to cardiovascular diseases is reflected in left ventricle (LV) motion patterns. An abnormal change of torsion or long axis shortening LV values can help with the diagnosis and follow-up of LV dysfunction. Tagged Magnetic Resonance (TMR) is a widely spread medical imaging modality that allows estimation of the myocardial tissue local deformation. In this work, we introduce a novel variational framework for extracting the left ventricle dynamics from TMR sequences. A bi-dimensional representation space of TMR images given by Gabor filter banks is defined. Tracking of the phases of the Gabor response is combined using a variational framework which regularizes the deformation field just at areas where the Gabor amplitude drops, while restoring the underlying motion otherwise. The clinical applicability of the proposed method is illustrated by extracting normality models of the ventricular torsion from 19 healthy subjects.
