Article
Full-text available
Ultrasound (US) imaging is used for the diagnosis and also evaluation of thyroid nodules. A Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) is used for the risk stratification of thyroid nodules through US images. The composition of thyroid nodules plays an important role in the risk-stratification process. The percentages of cystic and solid co...

(1) Background: Contact Endoscopy (CE) and Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) are optical imaging modalities that can provide enhanced and magnified visualization of the superficial vascular networks in the laryngeal mucosa. The similarity of vascular structures between benign and malignant lesions causes a challenge in the visual assessment of CE-NBI image...
Article
Full-text available
Ultrasound (US) imaging is used as a preliminary diagnostic tool for the detection, risk-stratification and classification of thyroid nodules. In order to perform the risk stratification of nodules in US images physicians first need to effectively detect the nodules. This process is affected due to the presence of inter-observer and intra-observer...

Auscultation methods allow a non-invasive diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases like atherosclerosis based on blood flow sounds of the carotid arteries. Since this process is highly dependent on the clinician’s experience, it is of great interest to develop automated data processing techniques for objective assessment. We have recently proposed a co...

Fatty liver disease (FLD) is one of the prominent diseases which affects the normal functionality of the liver by building vacuoles of fat in the liver cells. FLD is an indicator of imbalance in the metabolic system and could cause cardiovascular diseases, liver inflammation, cirrhosis and furthermore neoplasm. Detection and specification of a FLD...

For assessing clinically relevant structures in the neck area, especially the thyroid, it has been shown that 3D or tomographic ultrasound (3D US or tUS) is able to outperform standard 2D ultrasound [1] and computed tomography [2] for certain diagnostic procedures. However, when using a freehand and unassisted scanning method to acquire a 3D US vol...
Article
Full-text available
The classification of thyroid nodules using ultrasound (US) imaging is done using the Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) guidelines that classify nodules based on visual and textural characteristics. These are composition, shape, size, echogenicity, calcifications, margins, and vascularity. This work aims to reduce subjectivity in t...
Article
Full-text available
TURBT (transurethral resection of bladder tumor) is a standard treatment for bladder cancer. Gas bubble formation is caused by the heating of the RF-electrode from the resectoscope, which causes visual impairments and can also lead to explosive gas formation. The purpose of this work is to find a proper technical solution for removing the air bubbl...

The healthcare industry is consistently developing a constant supply of medical equipment, e.g. radiation protection wear. These must be inspected regularly to ensure safety and quality. As this equipment keeps on moving from department to department, it has to be located in one place for annual inspection and must be properly documented after qual...

Ultrasound is a useful technique for diagnosing thyroid nodules. Benign and malignant nodules that automatically discriminate in the ultrasound pictures can provide diagnostic recommendations or, improve diagnostic accuracy in the absence of specialists. The main issue here is how to collect suitable features for this particular task. We suggest he...

Minimally invasive otorhinolaryngology surgery uses a system that consists of an endoscope, microscope, high-resolution display, and several surgical tools to perform procedures of the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) up to the upper Oesophagus. The complexity, and number of systems used, forces the surgeon to focus on multiple factors rather than exclus...
Article

The thyroid is one of the largest endocrine glands in the human body, which is involved in several body mechanisms like controlling protein synthesis, use of energy sources, and controlling the body’s sensitivity to other hormones. Thyroid segmentation and volume reconstruction are hence essential to diagnose thyroid related diseases as most of the...
Article
Medical Interventional devices (MIDs) such as needles, catheter, and guide wires are challenging to use during interventional surgeries due to interrupted visualization and artifacts. Therefore, MIDs need highly efficient accessories to allow targeting and verification simultaneously. Diagnostic imaging devices (CT, Ultrasound, X-rays, and MRI) are...
Conference Paper
The classification of thyroid and non-thyroid regions in Ultrasound (US) images is of prime importance to the medical community as changes in the thyroid shape, size, and volume diagnosis can be used to diagnose thyroid disorders and improve calculation of activities for radioiodine therapy of thyroid diseases. An alteration in hormones leads to di...
Conference Paper
The classification of thyroid and non-thyroid regions in ultrasound images is of high clinical importance as changes in the thyroid shape and size act as indicators for thyroid diseases. We present a novel approach of features computation using the thyroid texture and classify them using two simple classification/clustering algorithms (linear discr...
Article
Diabetes occurs when the pancreas in the human body does not secrete sufficient insulin. It is a disease that is growing rapidly and affecting many lives. Hence, it needs constant monitoring. Wearable devices are those devices that are present on your person at all times. If the monitoring of this disease could be paired with wearable devices along...

The process of planning on which implant would be most suitable is subjective in nature. With appropriate feature extraction and use of this as information to make an objective decision on the exact implant to be used can the entire process be streamlined

The value of IT (Information Technology) to organizations has been a continuous topic of discussion since computers were introduced into organizations. Privacy of information collected during healthcare processes is necessary because of significant economic, psychological and social harm that can come to individuals when personal health information...

Health Care sector in India has witnessed significant growth during the last few years, both in quality and capacity. The relatively lower cost of health care, as compared to developed countries, coupled with international quality, has positioned India as a major destination for health care services. One of the most significant and promising trends...
