  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.

  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.

  Title Image-based ECG sampling of IVUS sequences Type Conference Article
  Year 2008 Publication Proc. IEEE Ultrasonics Symp. IUS 2008 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 1330-1333  
  Keywords Longitudinal Motion; Image-based ECG-gating; Fourier analysis  
  Abstract Longitudinal motion artifacts in IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS) sequences hinders a properly 3D reconstruction and vessel measurements. Most of current techniques base on the ECG signal to obtain a gated pullback without the longitudinal artifact by using a specific hardware or the ECG signal itself. The potential of IVUS images processing for phase retrieval still remains little explored. In this paper, we present a fast forward image-based algorithm to approach ECG sampling. Inspired on the fact that maximum and minimum lumen areas are related to end-systole and end-diastole, our cardiac phase retrieval is based on the analysis of tissue density of mass along the sequence. The comparison between automatic and manual phase retrieval (0.07 ± 0.07 mm. of error) encourages a deep validation contrasting with ECG signals.

  Title How Do Conservation Laws Define a Motion Suppression Score in In-Vivo Ivus Sequences? Type Conference Article
  Year 2007 Publication Proc. IEEE Ultrasonics Symp Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 2231-2234  
  Keywords validation standards; IVUS motion compensation; conservation laws.  
  Abstract Evaluation of arterial tissue biomechanics for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases is an active research field in the biomedical imaging processing area. IntraVascular UltraSound (IVUS) is a unique tool for such assessment since it reflects tissue morphology and deformation. A proper quantification and visualization of both properties is hindered by vessel structures misalignments introduced by cardiac dynamics. This has encouraged development of IVUS motion compensation techniques. However, there is a lack of an objective evaluation of motion reduction ensuring a reliable clinical application This work reports a novel score, the Conservation of Density Rate (CDR), for validation of motion compensation in in-vivo pullbacks. Synthetic experiments validate the proposed score as measure of motion parameters accuracy; while results in in vivo pullbacks show its reliability in clinical cases.

  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 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 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 Regional motion patterns for the Left Ventricle function assessment Type Conference Article
  Year 2008 Publication Proc. 19th Int. Conf. Pattern Recognition ICPR 2008 Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 1-4  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Regional scores (e.g. strain, perfusion) of the Left Ventricle (LV) functionality are playing an increasing role in the diagnosis of cardiac diseases. A main limitation is the lack of normality models for complementary scores oriented to assessment of the LV integrity. This paper introduces an original framework based on a parametrization of the LV domain, which allows comparison across subjects of local physiological measures of different nature. We compute regional normality patterns in a feature space characterizing the LV function. We show the consistency of the model for the regional motion on healthy and hypokinetic pathological cases

  Title Hand-drawn symbol recognition in graphic documents using deformable template matching and a Bayesian framework Type Conference Article
  Year 2000 Publication Proc. 15th Int Pattern Recognition Conf Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 2 Issue Pages 239-242  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Hand-drawn symbols can take many different and distorted shapes from their ideal representation. Then, very flexible methods are needed to be able to handle unconstrained drawings. We propose here to extend our previous work in hand-drawn symbol recognition based on a Bayesian framework and deformable template matching. This approach gets flexibility enough to fit distorted shapes in the drawing while keeping fidelity to the ideal shape of the symbol. In this work, we define the similarity measure between an image and a symbol based on the distance from every pixel in the image to the lines in the symbol. Matching is carried out using an implementation of the EM algorithm. Thus, we can improve recognition rates and computation time with respect to our previous formulation based on a simulated annealing algorithm.

  Title Hand drawn document understanding using the straight line Hough transform and graph matching Type Conference Article
  Year 1996 Publication Proceedings of the 13th International Pattern Recognition Conference (ICPR’96) Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 2 Issue Pages 497-501  
  Keywords  
  Abstract This paper presents a system to understand hand drawn architectural drawings in a CAD environment. The procedure is to identify in a floor plan the building elements, stored in a library of patterns, and their spatial relationships. The vectorized input document and the patterns to recognize are represented by attributed graphs. To recognize the patterns as such, we apply a structural approach based on subgraph isomorphism techniques. In spite of their value, graph matching techniques do not recognize adequately those building elements characterized by hatching patterns, i.e. walls. Here we focus on the recognition of hatching patterns and develop a straight line Hough transform based method in order to detect the regions filled in with parallel straight fines. This allows not only to recognize filling patterns, but it actually reduces the computational load associated with the subgraph isomorphism computation. The result is that the document can be redrawn by editing all the patterns recognized

  Title Learning of structural descriptions of graphic symbols using deformable template matching Type Conference Article
  Year 2001 Publication Proc. Sixth Int Document Analysis and Recognition Conf Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 455-459  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Accurate symbol recognition in graphic documents needs an accurate representation of the symbols to be recognized. If structural approaches are used for recognition, symbols have to be described in terms of their shape, using structural relationships among extracted features. Unlike statistical pattern recognition, in structural methods, symbols are usually manually defined from expertise knowledge, and not automatically infered from sample images. In this work we explain one approach to learn from examples a representative structural description of a symbol, thus providing better information about shape variability. The description of a symbol is based on a probabilistic model. It consists of a set of lines described by the mean and the variance of line parameters, respectively providing information about the model of the symbol, and its shape variability. The representation of each image in the sample set as a set of lines is achieved using deformable template matching.
