  Title Positive Airway Pressure-Enhanced CT to Improve Virtual Bronchoscopic Navigation Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Journal of Thoracic Oncology Abbreviated Journal JTO  
  Volume 12 Issue 1S Pages (up) S596-S597  
  Keywords Thorax CT; diagnosis; Peripheral Pulmonary Nodule  
  Abstract A main weakness of virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) is unsuccessful segmentation of distal branches approaching peripheral pulmonary nodules (PPN). CT scan acquisition protocol is pivotal for segmentation covering the utmost periphery. We hypothesize that application of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) during CT acquisition could improve visualization and segmentation of peripheral bronchi. The purpose of the present pilot study is to compare quality of segmentations under 4 CT acquisition modes: inspiration (INSP), expiration (EXP) and both with CPAP (INSP-CPAP and EXP-CPAP).

  Title Evaluation of the Capabilities of Confidence Measures for Assessing Optical Flow Quality Type Conference Article
  Year 2013 Publication ICCV Workshop on Computer Vision in Vehicle Technology: From Earth to Mars Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (up) 624-631  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Assessing Optical Flow (OF) quality is essential for its further use in reliable decision support systems. The absence of ground truth in such situations leads to the computation of OF Confidence Measures (CM) obtained from either input or output data. A fair comparison across the capabilities of the different CM for bounding OF error is required in order to choose the best OF-CM pair for discarding points where OF computation is not reliable. This paper presents a statistical probabilistic framework for assessing the quality of a given CM. Our quality measure is given in terms of the percentage of pixels whose OF error bound can not be determined by CM values. We also provide statistical tools for the computation of CM values that ensures a given accuracy of the flow field.

  Title Myocardial Perfusion Characterization From Contrast Angiography Spectral Distribution Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 27 Issue 5 Pages (up) 641-649  
  Keywords Contrast angiography; myocardial perfusion; spectral analysis.  
  Abstract Despite recovering a normal coronary flow after acute myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention does not guarantee a proper perfusion (irrigation) of the infarcted area. This damage in microcirculation integrity may detrimentally affect the patient survival. Visual assessment of the myocardium opacification in contrast angiography serves to define a subjective score of the microcirculation integrity myocardial blush analysis (MBA). Although MBA correlates with patient prognosis its visual assessment is a very difficult task that requires of a highly expertise training in order to achieve a good intraobserver and interobserver agreement. In this paper, we provide objective descriptors of the myocardium staining pattern by analyzing the spectrum of the image local statistics. The descriptors proposed discriminate among the different phenomena observed in the angiographic sequence and allow defining an objective score of the myocardial perfusion.

  Title Statistical descriptors of the Myocardial perfusion in angiographic images Type Conference Article
  Year 2006 Publication Proc. Computers in Cardiology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (up) 677-680  
  Keywords Anisotropic processing; intravascular ultrasound (IVUS); vessel border segmentation; vessel structure classification.  
  Abstract Restoration of coronary flow after primary percutaneous coronary intervention in acute myocardial infarction does not always correlate with adequate myocardial perfusion. Recently, coronary angiography has been used to assess microcirculation integrity (Myocardial BlushAnalysis, MBA). Although MBA correlates with patient prognosis there are few image processing methods addressing objective perfusion quantification. The goal of this work is to develop statistical descriptors of the myocardial dyeing pattern allowing objective assessment of myocardial perfusion. Experiments on healthy right coronary arteries show that our approach allows reliable measurements without any specific image acquisition protocol.

  Title Fundamentals of Stop and Go active models Type Journal Article
  Year 2005 Publication Image and Vision Computing Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 23 Issue 8 Pages (up) 681-691  
  Keywords Deformable models; Geodesic snakes; Region-based segmentation  
  Abstract An efficient snake formulation should conform to the idea of picking the smoothest curve among all the shapes approximating an object of interest. In current geodesic snakes, the regularizing curvature also affects the convergence stage, hindering the latter at concave regions. In the present work, we make use of characteristic functions to define a novel geodesic formulation that decouples regularity and convergence. This term decoupling endows the snake with higher adaptability to non-convex shapes. Convergence is ensured by splitting the definition of the external force into an attractive vector field and a repulsive one. In our paper, we propose to use likelihood maps as approximation of characteristic functions of object appearance. The better efficiency and accuracy of our decoupled scheme are illustrated in the particular case of feature space-based segmentation.

  Title Reducing cardiac motion in IVUS sequences Type Conference Article
  Year 2006 Publication Proceeding of Computers in Cardiology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 33 Issue Pages (up) 685-688  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Cardiac vessel displacement is a main artifact in IVUS sequences. It hinders visualization of the main structures in an appropriate orientation and alignment and affects extracting vessel measurements. In this paper, we present a novel approach for image sequence alignment based on spectral analysis, which removes rigid dynamics, preserving at the same time the vessel geometry. First, we suppress the translation by taking, for each frame, the center of mass of the image as origin of coordinates. In polar coordinates with such point as origin, the rotation appears as a horizontal displacement. The translation induces a phase shift in the Fourier coefficients of two consecutive polar images. We estimate the phase by adjusting a regression plane to the phases of the principal frequencies. Experiments show that the presented strategy suppress cardiac motion regardless of the acquisition device. 1.

  Title Laplacian Unitary Domain for Texture Morphing Type Conference Article
  Year 2015 Publication Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications VISIGRAPP2015 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 1 Issue Pages (up) 693-699  
  Keywords Facial; metamorphosis;LaplacianMorphing  
  Abstract Deformation of expressive textures is the gateway to realistic computer synthesis of expressions. By their good mathematical properties and flexible formulation on irregular meshes, most texture mappings rely on solutions to the Laplacian in the cartesian space. In the context of facial expression morphing, this approximation can be seen from the opposite point of view by neglecting the metric. In this paper, we use the properties of the Laplacian in manifolds to present a novel approach to warping expressive facial images in order to generate a morphing between them.

  Title A Normalized Framework for the Design of Feature Spaces Assessing the Left Ventricular Function Type Journal Article
  Year 2010 Publication IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging Abbreviated Journal TMI  
  Volume 29 Issue 3 Pages (up) 733-745  
  Keywords  
  Abstract A through description of the left ventricle functionality requires combining complementary regional scores. A main limitation is the lack of multiparametric normality models oriented to the assessment of regional wall motion abnormalities (RWMA). This paper covers two main topics involved in RWMA assessment. We propose a general framework allowing the fusion and comparison across subjects of different regional scores. Our framework is used to explore which combination of regional scores (including 2-D motion and strains) is better suited for RWMA detection. Our statistical analysis indicates that for a proper (within interobserver variability) identification of RWMA, models should consider motion and extreme strains.

  Title Helical Structure of Ventricular Anatomy by Diffusion Tensor Cardiac MR Tractography Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Journal of American College of Cardiology Abbreviated Journal JACC  
  Volume 5 Issue 7 Pages (up) 754-755  
  Keywords  
  Abstract It is widely accepted that myocardial fiber architecture plays a critical role in myocardial contractility and relaxation (1). However, there is a lack of consensus about the distribution of the myocardial fibers and their spatial arrangement in the left and right ventricles. An understanding of the cardiac architecture should benefit the ventricular functional assessment, left ventricular reconstructive surgery planning, or resynchronization therapy in heart failure. Researchers have proposed several conceptual models to describe the architecture of the heart, ranging from gross dissection to histological presentation. The cardiac mesh model (2) proposes that the myocytes are arranged longitudinally and radially change their angulation along the myocardial depth. By contrast, the helical ventricular myocardial model states that the ventricular myocardium is a continuous anatomical helical layout of myocardial fibers (1

  Title Statistical Strategy for Anisotropic Adventitia Modelling in IVUS Type Journal Article
  Year 2006 Publication IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 25 Issue 6 Pages (up) 768-778  
  Keywords Corners; T-junctions; Wavelets  
  Abstract Vessel plaque assessment by analysis of intravascular ultrasound sequences is a useful tool for cardiac disease diagnosis and intervention. Manual detection of luminal (inner) and mediaadventitia (external) vessel borders is the main activity of physicians in the process of lumen narrowing (plaque) quantification. Difficult definition of vessel border descriptors, as well as, shades, artifacts, and blurred signal response due to ultrasound physical properties trouble automated adventitia segmentation. In order to efficiently approach such a complex problem, we propose blending advanced anisotropic filtering operators and statistical classification techniques into a vessel border modelling strategy. Our systematic statistical analysis shows that the reported adventitia detection achieves an accuracy in the range of interobserver variability regardless of plaque nature, vessel geometry, and incomplete vessel borders. Index Terms–-Anisotropic processing, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), vessel border segmentation, vessel structure classification.
