The number of phase wraps in an image can be either reduced, or completely eliminated, by transforming the image into the frequency domain using a Fourier transform, and then shifting the spectrum towards the origin. After this, the spectrum is transformed back to the spatial domain using the inverse Fourier transform and finally the phase is extra...
Article
Virtual reality technology is an attractive means for medical simulations and treatment, especially for patients with cancer. The overall goal of this research is to introduce a conceptual virtual environment with real-world dynamic contents to develop an effective breathing exercise tool that will aid in regulating breathing movements and eventual...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents a conceptual framework of a virtual reality therapy to assist individuals, especially lung cancer patients or those with breathing disorders to regulate their breath through real-time analysis of respiration movements using a smart-phone. Virtual reality technology is an attractive means for medical simulations and treatment, pa...
Article
Full-text available
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of different types of sleep-related breathing disorders. It is characterized by repetitive cessations of respiratory flow during sleep, which occurs due to a collapse of the upper respiratory airway. OSA is majorly undiagnosed due to the inconvenient Polysomnography (PSG) testing procedure at sl...

Monitoring breath and identifying breathing movements have settled importance in many biomedical research areas, especially in the treatment of those with breathing disorders, e.g., lung cancer patients. Moreover, virtual reality (VR) revolution and their implementations on ubiquitous hand-held devices have a lot of implications, which could be use...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Breathing disorders are generally associated with the lung cancer disease. Through daily treatment, lung cancer patients often use a traditional spirometer to measure their lung capacity. However, the use of a spirometer device for accurate measurement requires some sort of training and adjustment, which may be inconvenient for certain groups of pa...

Lung diseases are mainly associated with respiration. Detecting the breath and classifying breathing movements such as inhale and exhale has settled importance in many biomedical research areas. To this end, monitoring the breathing movements for lung cancer patients tends to remain one of the breath detection applications which has received much a...
Conference Paper
This paper introduces a novel automated approach towards computing the lung capacity. Traditionally, lung cancer patients and those with certain breathing disorders use a spirometer device to measure their lung capacity. However, accurate measurements using the spirometer requires some sort of training and adjustment, which may be inconvenient for...

INTRODUCTION esigning a virtual reality (VR) environment framework to assist cancer patients, in general, has received a lot of interest in many biomedical research fields [1-2]. As Lung cancer tends to be the number one leading cancer-caused death in the U.S. [3], a hand-held virtual therapy platform that can aid lung cancer patients seems highly...
