  • Statistical method for ECG analysis and diagnostic
    • Authors: Hanen Chaouch, Khaled Ouni, Lotfi Nabli
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: In this paper, a statistical method of ECG analysis and diagnostic is proposed. This method is based on three parts: data simplification using multiscaled PCA, faults detection and localisation by introducing classic linear PCA. The studied data is presented as a multivariate matrix. The variables of this matrix are extracted from the ECG waves characteristics: waves amplitudes and segments measurements. The developed approach allows detecting arrhythmias and heart beat troubles. Comparing the results obtained by this approach and the data of the expert, we approve the performance of our study.

  • Greyscale and colour medical image compressed using hybrid contourlet
           biorthogonal CDF lifting scheme, bandelet and quincunx wavelet transforms:
           a comparative study
    • Authors: Ismail Boukli Hacene, Abdelhafid Bessaid
      Pages: 13 - 31
      Abstract: The Quincunx wavelet, the lifting scheme wavelet and the second generation bandelet transform are a new method to offer an optimal representation for image geometric. In the field of medical diagnostics, interested parties have resorted increasingly to medical imaging. It is well established that the accuracy and completeness of diagnosis are initially connected with the image quality, but the quality of the image is itself dependent on a number of factors including primarily the processing that an image must undergo to enhance its quality. The quality evaluation of compressed image is necessary to judge the performance of a compression method. This paper introduces an algorithm for medical image compression based on hybrid non-subsampled contourlet (NSCT) and quincunx wavelet transforms (QWT) coupled with SPIHT coding algorithm, of which we present the objective measurements (PSNR, EDGE, WPSNR, MSSIM, VIF, and WSNR) in order to evaluate the quality of the image.

  • ECG beat classification using machine learning techniques
    • Authors: Shweta H. Jambukia, Vipul K. Dabhi, Harshadkumar B. Prajapati
      Pages: 32 - 53
      Abstract: An arrhythmia is an abnormality in the heart rhythm, or heartbeat pattern. ECG beats can be classified into six different arrhythmia beat types (left bundle branch block, right bundle branch block, paced beats, premature ventricular contradiction, atrial premature beats, and normal rhythm). Early and accurate detection of arrhythmia types is important in detecting heart diseases and choosing appropriate treatment for a patient. This paper proposes a combination of Particle Swarm Optimisation (PSO) and Feed Forward Neural Network (FFNN) for ECG beat classification. We have used MIT-BIH arrhythmia database for data collection and prepared three different datasets. Features, such as R peak sample number and QRS complex, are extracted using Pan-Tompkins algorithm. The extracted features are used as inputs to three different classifiers: Multi-Layer Perceptron Neural Network (MLPNN), Support Vector Machine (SVM), and PSO-FFNN. Results show high classification accuracy of over 97% with either of these three classifiers. The performance comparison of these classifiers is carried out using three measures: sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy. The results suggest that PSO-FFNN shows slightly better performance than MLPNN and SVM in terms of accuracy on all datasets.

  • Feature level fusion using physical biometric traits
    • Authors: Jerusalin Carol, A. Lenin Fred
      Pages: 54 - 70
      Abstract: Biometric is a measuring technique that is utilised to discern a person's identity through a physiological or behavioural feature. Each modality on its own cannot always be reliable for recognition. The multimodal biometric system offers several advantages over the traditional biometric system. In order to overcome the limitations of the unimodal biometrics, the fusion of multimodal biometric traits have been used. In this paper, a multimodal biometric based on fingerprint, palm print and knuckle print is presented. Gabor filter is employed to extract features from these biometric traits. The features extracted from these biometric traits are normalised and fused together. The features are fused by feature level fusion, and the result of the proposed method provides efficient authentication, by minimising the FAR by 1.43%, and the framework achieves satisfactory performance.
      Keywords: biometric; fingerprint; palm print; knuckle print; minutiae-based matching; Gabor filter

  • A non-invasive approach for the diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes using HRV
           parameters
    • Authors: P. Sankar, Marykutty Cyriac
      Pages: 71 - 83
      Abstract: As per the records of World Health Organisation, diabetes is currently one of the major diseases faced by the world community. This necessitates the introduction of screening tools for diabetes. In this paper, a non-invasive approach is proposed to diagnose the presence of Type 2 diabetes by analysing the relationship between the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) parameters and the arterial blood glucose changes. The HRV analysis is performed using non-linear methods such as Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA) and Poincare plot. A few parameters derived from these non-linear methods are used to introduce two metrics named as Standard Deviation Ratio (SDR) and alpha-ratio. These two metrics are given as input to a machine learning classifier to categorise the subjects as diabetic or non-diabetic. The accuracy analysis of the classification results shows that 94.7% of the subjects are categorised correctly. Therefore, the proposed metrics can be considered as non-invasive screening tools in predicting the presence of Type 2 diabetes.

  • Efficient speech recognition system for hearing impaired children in
           classical Tamil language
    • Authors: C. Jeyalakshmi, A. Revathi
      Pages: 84 - 100
      Abstract: This paper presents the development of the robust speech recognition system for the children with hearing impairment. It is a challenging task to recognise the distorted speeches of the hearing impaired since the characteristics of the speeches uttered by these people normally have variations in terms of accent, pronunciation and speed. Because of their inability to hear, they are not able to speak even though their nasal and oral cavities aiding for the speech production are perfect like normal persons. This work mainly emphasises the use of MFCC & MF-PLP features at the front end and HMM & K-means clustering at the back end. Performance of the system is evaluated and compared for the two modelling techniques and recognition accuracy is 94%, 97% and 84% for MFCC with HMM and accuracy is 98.3%, 93.5% and 93.6% for MF-PLP with K-means clustering for recognition system developed for recognising isolated digits, connected words and continuous speeches of hearing impaired. Noteworthy point to be mentioned is that, though the clustering technique is an old technique, it is proved that it gives better results as compared to HMM.

  • Motor imagery classification from human EEG signatures
    • Authors: Rohtash Dhiman, Priyanka, J.S. Saini
      Pages: 101 - 110
      Abstract: Brain-computer interface (BCI) systems translate the imagination in the human brain to an action in real world by means of machines. These systems can prove to be a blessing for severely impaired patients in terms of BCI prosthetics. This paper proposes a motor imagery classification system based upon Wavelet Packet Decomposition (WPD) and Support Vector Machine (SVM). The wavelet packet transform is used for both selection of sensory motor frequency band and feature extraction. The publically available BCI competition-IV data set-I has been used to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme. The obtained classification results outperform the previously reported results of the technique Noise Assisted Multivariate Empirical Mode Decomposition (NA-MEMD) for subjects 'a' and 'b', where 'a' and 'b' refers to two subjects from BCI competition data set-IV.
