  Title Multi-resolution DT-MRI cardiac tractography Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication Statistical Atlases And Computational Models Of The Heart: Imaging and Modelling Challenges Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 7746 Issue Pages 270-277  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Even using objective measures from DT-MRI no consensus about myocardial architecture has been achieved so far. Streamlining provides good reconstructions at low level of detail, but falls short to give global abstract interpretations. In this paper, we present a multi-resolution methodology that is able to produce simplified representations of cardiac architecture. Our approach produces a reduced set of tracts that are representative of the main geometric features of myocardial anatomical structure. Experiments show that fiber geometry is preserved along reductions, which validates the simplified model for interpretation of cardiac architecture.

  Title What a difference in biomechanics cardiac fiber makes Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication Statistical Atlases And Computational Models Of The Heart: Imaging and Modelling Challenges Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 7746 Issue Pages 253-260  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Computational simulations of the heart are a powerful tool for a comprehensive understanding of cardiac function and its intrinsic relationship with its muscular architecture. Cardiac biomechanical models require a vector field representing the orientation of cardiac fibers. A wrong orientation of the fibers can lead to a
non-realistic simulation of the heart functionality. In this paper we explore the impact of the fiber information on the simulated biomechanics of cardiac muscular anatomy. We have used the John Hopkins database to perform a biomechanical simulation using both a synthetic benchmark fiber distribution and the data obtained experimentally from DTI. Results illustrate how differences in fiber orientation affect heart deformation along cardiac cycle.

  Title A medial map capturing the essential geometry of organs Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication ISBI Workshop on Open Source Medical Image Analysis software Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 1691 - 1694  
  Keywords Medial Surface Representation, Volume Reconstruction,Geometry , Image reconstruction , Liver , Manifolds , Shape , Surface morphology , Surface reconstruction  
  Abstract Medial representations are powerful tools for describing and parameterizing the volumetric shape of anatomical structures. Accurate computation of one pixel wide medial surfaces is mandatory. Those surfaces must represent faithfully the geometry of the volume. Although morphological methods produce excellent results in 2D, their complexity and quality drops across dimensions, due to a more complex description of pixel neighborhoods. This paper introduces a continuous operator for accurate and efficient computation of medial structures of arbitrary dimension. Our experiments show its higher performance for medical imaging applications in terms of simplicity of medial structures and capability for reconstructing the anatomical volume

  Title A Complete Confidence Framework for Optical Flow Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication 12th European Conference on Computer Vision – Workshops and Demonstrations Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 7584 Issue 2 Pages 124-133  
  Keywords Optical flow, confidence measures, sparsification plots, error prediction plots  
  Abstract Medial representations are powerful tools for describing and parameterizing the volumetric shape of anatomical structures. Existing methods show excellent results when applied to 2D objects, but their quality drops across dimensions. This paper contributes to the computation of medial manifolds in two aspects. First, we provide a standard scheme for the computation of medial manifolds that avoid degenerated medial axis segments; second, we introduce an energy based method which performs independently of the dimension. We evaluate quantitatively the performance of our method with respect to existing approaches, by applying them to synthetic shapes of known medial geometry. Finally, we show results on shape representation of multiple abdominal organs, exploring the use of medial manifolds for the representation of multi-organ relations.

  Title Segmentation of Tracheal Rings in Videobronchoscopy combining Geometry and Appearance Type Conference Article
  Year 2013 Publication Proceedings of the International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 1 Issue Pages 153--161  
  Keywords Video-bronchoscopy, tracheal ring segmentation, trachea geometric and appearance model  
  Abstract Videobronchoscopy is a medical imaging technique that allows interactive navigation inside the respiratory pathways and minimal invasive interventions. Tracheal procedures are ordinary interventions that require measurement of the percentage of obstructed pathway for injury (stenosis) assessment. Visual assessment of stenosis in videobronchoscopic sequences requires high expertise of trachea anatomy and is prone to human error. Accurate detection of tracheal rings is the basis for automated estimation of the size of stenosed trachea. Processing of videobronchoscopic images acquired at the operating room is a challenging task due to the wide range of artifacts and acquisition conditions. We present a model of the geometric-appearance of tracheal rings for its detection in videobronchoscopic videos. Experiments on sequences acquired at the operating room, show a performance close to inter-observer variability

  Title Finger joint characterization from X-ray images for rheymatoid arthritis assessment Type Conference Article
  Year 2013 Publication 6th International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 288-292  
  Keywords Rheumatoid Arthritis; X-Ray; Hand Joint; Sclerosis; Sharp Van der Heijde  
  Abstract In this study we propose amodular systemfor automatic rheumatoid arthritis assessment which provides a joint space width measure. A hand joint model is proposed based on the accurate analysis of a X-ray finger joint image sample set. This model shows that the sclerosis and the lower bone are the main necessary features in order to perform a proper finger joint characterization. We propose sclerosis and lower bone detection methods as well as the experimental setup necessary for its performance assessment. Our characterization is used to propose and compute a joint space width score which is shown to be related to the different degrees of arthritis. This assertion is verified by comparing our proposed score with Sharp Van der Heijde score, confirming that the lower our score is the more advanced is the patient affection.

  Volume 7963 Issue Pages 344-353  
  Keywords Optical flow, confidence measure, performance evaluation  
  Abstract Confidence estimation has recently become a hot topic in image processing and computer vision.Yet, several definitions exist of the term “confidence” which are sometimes used interchangeably. This is a position paper, in which we aim to give an overview on existing definitions,
thereby clarifying the meaning of the used terms to facilitate further research in this field. Based on these clarifications, we develop a theory to compare confidence measures with respect to their quality.

  Title Local Analysis of Confidence Measures for Optical Flow Quality Evaluation Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication 9th International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 3 Issue Pages 450-457  
  Keywords Optical Flow; Confidence Measure; Performance Evaluation.  
  Abstract Optical Flow (OF) techniques facing the complexity of real sequences have been developed in the last years. Even using the most appropriate technique for our specific problem, at some points the output flow might fail to achieve the minimum error required for the system. Confidence measures computed from either input data or OF output should discard those points where OF is not accurate enough for its further use. It follows that evaluating the capabilities of a confidence measure for bounding OF error is as important as the definition
itself. In this paper we analyze different confidence measures and point out their advantages and limitations for their use in real world settings. We also explore the agreement with current tools for their evaluation of confidence measures performance.

  Title Anatomical parameterization for volumetric meshing of the liver Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication SPIE – Medical Imaging Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 9036 Issue Pages  
  Keywords Coordinate System; Anatomy Modeling; Parameterization  
  Abstract A coordinate system describing the interior of organs is a powerful tool for a systematic localization of injured tissue. If the same coordinate values are assigned to specific anatomical landmarks, the coordinate system allows integration of data across different medical image modalities. Harmonic mappings have been used to produce parametric coordinate systems over the surface of anatomical shapes, given their flexibility to set values
at specific locations through boundary conditions. However, most of the existing implementations in medical imaging restrict to either anatomical surfaces, or the depth coordinate with boundary conditions is given at sites
of limited geometric diversity. In this paper we present a method for anatomical volumetric parameterization that extends current harmonic parameterizations to the interior anatomy using information provided by the
volume medial surface. We have applied the methodology to define a common reference system for the liver shape and functional anatomy. This reference system sets a solid base for creating anatomical models of the patient’s liver, and allows comparing livers from several patients in a common framework of reference.
