  Title A Riemmanian approach to cardiac fiber architecture modelling Type Conference Article
  Year 2009 Publication 1st International Conference on Mathematical & Computational Biomedical Engineering Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 59-62  
  Keywords (up) cardiac fiber architecture; diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging; differential (Rie- mannian) geometry.  
  Abstract There is general consensus that myocardial fiber architecture should be modelled in order to fully understand the electromechanical properties of the Left Ventricle (LV). Diffusion Tensor magnetic resonance Imaging (DTI) is the reference image modality for rapid measurement of fiber orientations by means of the tensor principal eigenvectors. In this work, we present a mathematical framework for across subject comparison of the local geometry of the LV anatomy including the fiber architecture from the statistical analysis of DTI studies. We use concepts of differential geometry for defining a parametric domain suitable for statistical analysis of a low number of samples. We use Riemannian metrics to define a consistent computation of DTI principal eigenvector modes of variation. Our framework has been applied to build an atlas of the LV fiber architecture from 7 DTI normal canine hearts.

  Title On the usefulness of supervised learning for vessel border detection in IntraVascular Imaging Type Conference Article
  Year 2005 Publication Proceeding of the 2005 conference on Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 67-74  
  Keywords (up) classification; vessel border modelling; IVUS  
  Abstract IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS) imaging is a useful tool in diagnosis of cardiac diseases since sequences completely show the morphology of coronary vessels. Vessel borders detection, especially the external adventitia layer, plays a central role in morphological measures and, thus, their segmentation feeds development of medical imaging techniques. Deterministic approaches fail to yield optimal results due to the large amount of IVUS artifacts and vessel borders descriptors. We propose using classification techniques to learn the set of descriptors and parameters that best detect vessel borders. Statistical hypothesis test on the error between automated detections and manually traced borders by 4 experts show that our detections keep within inter-observer variability.

  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 (up) 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.

  Title Data Augmentation from Sketch Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication International Workshop on Uncertainty for Safe Utilization of Machine Learning in Medical Imaging Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 11840 Issue Pages 155-162  
  Keywords (up) Data augmentation; cycleGANs; Multi-objective optimization  
  Abstract State of the art machine learning methods need huge amounts of data with unambiguous annotations for their training. In the context of medical imaging this is, in general, a very difficult task due to limited access to clinical data, the time required for manual annotations and variability across experts. Simulated data could serve for data augmentation provided that its appearance was comparable to the actual appearance of intra-operative acquisitions. Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are a powerful tool for artistic style transfer, but lack a criteria for selecting epochs ensuring also preservation of intra-operative content.

We propose a multi-objective optimization strategy for a selection of cycleGAN epochs ensuring a mapping between virtual images and the intra-operative domain preserving anatomical content. Our approach has been applied to simulate intra-operative bronchoscopic videos and chest CT scans from virtual sketches generated using simple graphical primitives.

  Title Detecting loss of diversity for an efficient termination of EAs Type Conference Article
  Year 2013 Publication 15th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 561 - 566  
  Keywords (up) EA termination; EA population diversity; EA steady state  
  Abstract Termination of Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) at its steady state so that useless iterations are not performed is a main point for its efficient application to black-box problems. Many EA algorithms evolve while there is still diversity in their population and, thus, they could be terminated by analyzing the behavior some measures of EA population diversity. This paper presents a numeric approximation to steady states that can be used to detect the moment EA population has lost its diversity for EA termination. Our condition has been applied to 3 EA paradigms based on diversity and a selection of functions
covering the properties most relevant for EA convergence.
Experiments show that our condition works regardless of the search space dimension and function landscape.

  Title A Deterministic-Statistic Adventitia Detection in IVUS Images Type Conference Article
  Year 2005 Publication ESC Congress Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords (up) Electron microscopy; Unbending; 2D crystal; Interpolation; Approximation  
  Abstract Plaque analysis in IVUS planes needs accurate intima and adventitia models. Large variety in adventitia descriptors difficulties its detection and motivates using a classification strategy for selecting points on the structure. Whatever the set of descriptors used, the selection stage suffers from fake responses due to noise and uncompleted true curves. In order to smooth background noise while strengthening responses, we apply a restricted anisotropic filter that homogenizes grey levels along the image significant structures. Candidate points are extracted by means of a simple semi supervised adaptive classification of the filtered image response to edge and calcium detectors. The final model is obtained by interpolating the former line segments with an anisotropic contour closing technique based on functional extension principles.

  Title An inference model for analyzing termination conditions of Evolutionary Algorithms Type Conference Article
  Year 2011 Publication 14th Congrès Català en Intel·ligencia Artificial Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 216-225  
  Keywords (up) Evolutionary Computation Convergence, Termination Conditions, Statistical Inference  
  Abstract In real-world problems, it is mandatory to design a termination condition for Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) ensuring stabilization close to the unknown optimum. Distribution-based quantities are good candidates as far as suitable parameters are used. A main limitation for application to real-world problems is that such parameters strongly depend on the topology of the objective function, as well as, the EA paradigm used.
We claim that the termination problem would be fully solved if we had a model measuring to what extent a distribution-based quantity asymptotically behaves like the solution accuracy. We present a regression-prediction model that relates any two given quantities and reports if they can be statistically swapped as termination conditions. Our framework is applied to two issues. First, exploring if the parameters involved in the computation of distribution-based quantities influence their asymptotic behavior. Second, to what extent existing distribution-based quantities can be asymptotically exchanged for the accuracy of the EA solution.

  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 693-699  
  Keywords (up) 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 Parametric Domain for the Analysis of the Left Ventricular Function Type Conference Article
  Year 2008 Publication Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP’08) Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 1 Issue Pages 267-274  
  Keywords (up) Helical Ventricular Myocardial Band; Myocardial Fiber; Tagged Magnetic Resonance; HARP; Optical Flow Variational Framework; Gabor Filters; B-Splines.  
  Abstract Impairment of left ventricular (LV) contractility due to cardiovascular diseases is reflected in LV motion patterns. The mechanics of any muscle strongly depends on the spatial orientation of its muscular fibers since the motion that the muscle undergoes mainly takes place along the fiber. The helical ventricular myocardial band (HVMB) concept describes the myocardial muscle as a unique muscular band that twists in space in a non homogeneous fashion. The 3D anisotropy of the ventricular band fibers suggests a regional analysis of the heart motion. Computation of normality models of such motion can help in the detection and localization of any cardiac disorder. In this paper we introduce, for the first time, a normalized parametric domain that allows comparison of the left ventricle motion across patients. We address, both, extraction of the LV motion from Tagged Magnetic Resonance images, as well as, defining a mapping of the LV to a common normalized domain. Extraction of normality motion patterns from 17 healthy volunteers shows the clinical potential of our LV parametrization.
