  Title (up) An improved model of snakes for model-based segmentation Type Conference Article
  Year 1995 Publication Proceedings of Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 515-520  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The main advantage of segmentation by snakes consists in its ability to incorporate smoothness constraints on the detected shapes that can occur. Likewise, we propose to model snakes with other properties that reflect the information provided about the object of interest in a different extent. We consider different kinds of snakes, those searching for contours with a certain direction, those preserving an object’s model, those seeking for symmetry, those expanding open, etc. The availability of such a collection of snakes allows not only the more complete use of the knowledge about the segmented object, but also to solve some problems of the existing snakes. Our experiments on segmentation of facial features justify the usefulness of snakes with different properties.

  Title (up) 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 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 (up) An intuitive validation technique to compare local versus global tagged MRI analysis Type Conference Article
  Year 2005 Publication Computers In Cardiology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 32 Issue Pages 29–32  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Myocardium appears as a uniform tissue that seen in convectional Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) shows just the contractile part of its movement. MR Tagging is a unique imaging technique that prints a grid over the tissue which moves according to the underlying movement of the myocardium revealing the true deformation of the cardiac muscle. Optical flow techniques based on spectral information estimate tissue displacement by analyzing information encoded in the phase maps which can be obtained using, local (Gabor) and global (HARP) methods. In this paper we compare both in synthetic and real Tagged MR sequences. We conclude that local method is slightly more accurate than the global one. On the other hand, global method is more efficient as it is much faster and less parameters have to be taken into account

  Title (up) 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.

  Title (up) Angle Images Using Gabor Filters in Cardiac Tagged MRI Type Conference Article
  Year 2005 Publication Proceeding of the 2005 conference on Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 107-114  
  Keywords Angle Images, Gabor Filters, Harp, Tagged Mri  
  Abstract Tagged Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive technique used to examine cardiac deformation in vivo. An Angle Image is a representation of a Tagged MRI which recovers the relative position of the tissue respect to the distorted tags. Thus cardiac deformation can be estimated. This paper describes a new approach to generate Angle Images using a bank of Gabor filters in short axis cardiac Tagged MRI. Our method improves the Angle Images obtained by global techniques, like HARP, with a local frequency analysis. We propose to use the phase response of a combination of a Gabor filters bank, and use it to find a more precise deformation of the left ventricle. We demonstrate the accuracy of our method over HARP by several experimental results.

  Title (up) Anisotropic Contour Completion Type Conference Article
  Year 2003 Publication Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract In this paper we introduce a novel application of the diffusion tensor for anisotropic image processing. The Anisotropic Contour Completion (ACC) we suggest consists in extending the characteristic function of the open curve by means of a degenerated diffusion tensor that prevents any diffusion in the normal direction. We show that ACC is equivalent to a dilation with a continuous elliptic structural element that takes into account the local orientation of the contours to be closed. Experiments on contours extracted from real images show that ACC produces shapes able to adapt to any curve in an active contour framework. 1.

  Title (up) Anisotropic processing of image structures for adventitia detection in intravascular ultrasound images Type Conference Article
  Year 2004 Publication Proc. Computers in Cardiology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 31 Issue Pages 229-232  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The adventitia layer appears as a weak edge in IVUS images with a non-uniform grey level, which difficulties its detection. In order to enhance edges, we apply an anisotropic filter that homogenizes the grey level along the image significant structures (ridges, valleys and edges). A standard edge detector applied to the filtered image yields a set of candidate points prone to be unconnected. The final model is obtained by interpolating the former line segments along the tangent direction to the level curves of the filtered image with an anisotropic contour closing technique based on functional extension principles

  Title (up) Application of deformable template matching to symbol recognition in hand-written architectural draw Type Conference Article
  Year 1999 Publication Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract We propose to use deformable template matching as a new approach to recognize characters and lineal symbols in hand-written line drawings, instead of traditional methods based on vectorization and feature extraction. Bayesian formulation of the deformable template matching allows combining fidelity to the ideal shape of the symbol with maximum flexibility to get the best fit to the input image. Lineal nature of symbols can be exploited to define a suitable representation of models and the set of deformations to be applied to them. Matching, however, is done over the original binary image to avoid losing relevant features during vectorization. We have applied this method to hand-written architectural drawings and experimental results demonstrate that symbols with high distortions from ideal shape can be accurately identified.

  Title (up) 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 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.
