In this paper, we study the significance of the pleura and adipose tissue in lung ultrasound AI analysis. We highlight their more prominent appearance when using high-frequency linear (HFL) instead of curvilinear ultrasound probes, showing HFL reveals better pleura detail. We compare the diagnostic utility of the pleura and adipose tissue using an...

Image inpainting is a well established problem in computer vision which aims to fill in missing regions in images. In medical applications, it can be combined with other tools to remove artifacts or fill in occluded regions, allowing better understanding of the images from doctors or downstream algorithms. However, current methods that solve the pr...

Ultrasound imaging has been improving, but continues to suffer from inherent artifacts that are challenging to model, such as attenuation, shadowing, diffraction, speckle, etc. These artifacts can potentially confuse image analysis algorithms unless an attempt is made to assess the certainty of individual pixel values. Our novel confidence algorith...

This paper presents an underwater lower-extremity soft exoskeleton which could provide assistance to swimming motions. With this motivation, we designed an exoskeleton called Powered Swimsuit to assist the wearer in breaststroke with fins. The actuation system was embedded inside of a portable waterproof cabin fabricated on the back of the swimsuit...

Locomotion mode recognition can contribute to precise control of active lower-limb prostheses in different environments. In this paper, we propose a novel locomotion mode recognition method based on convolutional neural network and strain gauge signals. The strain gauge only provides one-dimensional signals and is also used in the control strategy...
