Segmentation of Pulmonary Nodules in Computed Tomography using a Regression Neural Network Approach and its Application to the Lung Image Database Consortium and Image Database Resource Initiative Dataset (Electrical Project)

We present new pulmonary nodule segmentation algorithms for computed tomography (CT). These include a fully-automated (FA) system, a semi-automated (SA) system, and a hybrid system. Like most traditional systems, the Continue reading

Modeling of the arterial system with an AVD implanted (Electrical/Biomedical Project)

The number of patients that are waiting for heart transplants far exceed the number of available donor hearts. Left Ventricular Assist Devices are mechanical alternatives that can help and are helping several patients. They work by taking blood from the left Continue reading

Color Coded Depth Information in Medical Volume Rendering (Computer/Biomedical Project)

Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is used to obtain images showing the vascular system. To detect stenosis, which is narrowing of for example blood vessels, maximum intensity projection (MIP) is typically used. This technique often fails to demonstrate Continue reading

Clinical Assessment for Deep Vein Thrombosis Using Support Vector Machines: a Description of a Clinical Assessment and Compression Ultrasonography Journaling System for Deep Vein Thrombosis Using Support Vector Machines (Computer/Biomedical Project)

This project describes a journaling system for compression ultrasonography and a clinical assessment system for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We evaluate Support Vector Machines (SVM) models with linear and radial basis function-kernels for predicting deep vein thrombosis, and for Continue reading

A Single-Pixel Wireless Contact Lens Display (Electronics Project)

We present the design, construction, and in vivo rabbit testing of a wirelessly powered contact lens display. The display consists of an antenna, a 500 x 500 μm2 silicon power harvesting and radio integrated circuit, metal interconnects, insulation layers, and a Continue reading
