  • A Systematic Study on Flowability and Compressibility of Symphonia
           globulifera Stem Bark Powder for Tablet Dosage Form

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2017Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 7, Number 1Stephen Olaribigbe Majekodunmi, Uwaoma Lucky AligaThe stem bark of Symphonia globulifera is widely used in the treatment of several disorders ranging from parasitic disease, body pain, scabies, spiritual remedies, skin diseases to malaria, diabetes, venereal disease and erective problems in Africa and South America. The objective of the present research was to study the original flowability, compressibility and compactibility of Symphonia glubulifera stem bark and develop its tablet formulations by wet granulation and direct compression technology. The consolidation behaviour of drug and tablet formulations was studied by using Heckel and Leuenberger equations. Symphonia globulifera stem bark powder showed very poor flowability and compactibility. Kawakita analysis revealed improved flowability for formulations prepared by direct compression and wet granulation techniques. The Heckel plot showed that Symphonia globulifera stem bark powder is soft in nature and poor in die filling. Granules showed higher degree of plasticity and fragmentation than powder and direct compression formulations. The compression susceptibility parameter for compact formed by direct compression and wet granulation technique indicated that the maximum crushing strength is reached faster at lower pressures of compression as opposed to Symphonia globulifera stem bark powder. From this study, it is concluded that desired flowability, compressibility and compactibility of Symphonia glubulifera stem bark powder can be obtained by direct compression and wet granulation technique, being higher in the wet granulation.
       
  • EKG Signals – De-noising and Features Extraction

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 6Saleh Alomari, Mohammed Shujauddin, Vahid EmamianThe need of effective method to obtain and analyse electrocardiogram (EKG) signal has inspired This research paper to designed an efficient algorithm that can handle any (EKG), remove the most dominant noises associated with it, and extract the important futures. EKG signal is an electrical signal represents the physical human’s heart activity. Nonetheless, this signal is affected by various noise including baseline wondering and power interference. These noises affect the signal to noise ratio (SNR) especially in P and T waves which have less amplitudes than R peaks. Removing these noises result in cleaner signal that can be conveniently processed to extract important features such as heart health condition. EKG features play the main role in diagnosing the heart rate, normality and abnormality of heart activities, and heart diseases. For a healthy person, one heart beat consists of P, QRS Complex, T, and in some signals U waves. In this paper, a robust and numerically sufficient algorithm is developed to de-nosing EKG signal and extract all major features. For de-nosing EKG signal, FIR Equiripple High pass filter is used. FIR Equiripple Low pass filter follows this filter to remove the power interference noises. Haar wavelet transform is used to accurately detect the R peaks. Haar wavelet is found to be better than other common methods that are used to detect R peaks. Haar wavelet shows high accuracy when it is applied on EKG signal to detect R peaks. In fact, it succeeded to detect all R peaks in hundreds of EKG signals (obtained from Physio net website). All other features are detected based on the R peaks by creating a set of windows which their lengths depend on the maximum normal wave durations and locations. These filters and algorithm have been implemented in Matlab. The algorithm has been applied on 108 EKG signals collected from physionet website and could detect all EKG signals’ heart rates successfully despite the fact that some signals were extremely distorted.

  • On Stochastic Model for the Growth of Cancer Tumor based on the Finite
           Element Method

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 6Stefanos DrakosThe Growth of Cancer Tumor study is one of the most critical problems in the modern society. Million of deaths are recorded every day because of disease. The calculation of the growth has been addressed in the past by many scientists and is a very important factor for the correct strategy of treatment during the period of therapies. The knowledge of the tumor growth probability at each time is an important quantity for the problem definition. A Fokker Plank equation of a stochastic Gompertz law of growth was set up and a finite element based model solved the evolution of transition density function. In a numerical example at the end, the effect of the therapy and the width of fluctuation in the probability history are investigated.
       
  • A Device for Ligand-Free Single Cell Loading Using Magnetic Fields and
           Paramagnetic Microspheres

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 6Carissa Mason, Rachel Hjerpe, Emily Noonan, Philip L. Leopold, Antonio ValdevitA combination of mechanical and chemical signals govern tissue responses. Examination of the individual cellular response to the mechanical and the chemical stimuli is essential to understanding these tissue responses. The objective of this study was to develop and optimize a device enabling examination of cellular response under ligand-free compressive loading. This procedure will elicit cellular responses to mechanical loading without confounding biochemical signals imparted by tethering proteins. Particular loading parameters such as amplitude, duration, duty cycle, and frequency require investigation as they likely play a role in mechanotransduction control. We achieved cell nucleus loading through control of paramagnetic microspheres using magnetic fields generated by a hollow solenoid encircling a microscope objective. We placed paramagnetic microspheres upon A549 lung carcinoma epithelial cells in a coverslip dish with a current applied to a solenoid located below the dish. The magnetic field drew the paramagnetic microspheres towards the cells, resulting in nucleus deformation. We captured and analyzed images for morphological changes of the cell nuclei before and during the loading cycle. The results of this study represent the proof of concept for a ligand-free single-cell mechanical loading device for application of compressive loads using paramagnetic microspheres. Applications of this technology include studies involving effects of compressive loading on cell growth as well as investigations into the efficacy of therapeutic drugs when presented to diseased cells.
       
  • PCA-SVM Algorithm for Classification of Skeletal Data-Based Eigen Postures

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 5Nguyen Thanh Hai , Trinh Hoai An Falls are the major reason of serious injury and dangerous accident for elderly people. A recognition system is necessary to recognize falls early for help and treatment. In recent years, researchers have been developing many new methods of effective detection and recognition of human falls. In this paper, three subjects were introduced a system of fall recognition with five pairs of human postures (non-fall-fall, fall-stand, fall-sit, fall-bend, fall-lying) using a Kinect camera system. Features of skeletal data with the human postures obtained from the camera system are extracted using a PCA algorithm. For fall recognition and sending notification message, a SVM algorithm is applied for training the feature data and classifying these postures. Experimental results show that the high effectiveness of the proposed approach for fall recognition and alert is nearly 82%.
       
  • Controlling a Servo Motor Using EEG Signals from the Primary Motor Cortex

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 5Somer M. Nacy, Sadeem N. Kbah, Hind A. Jafer, Ibraheem Al-ShaalanBrain Computer Interface means the group of processes in which the generated signals of EEG in the human brain can be interpreted and transferred to control an external device. In this paper, a novel method is adopted to control the rotation of a servo motor via EEG signals extracted from the human brain cortex. These signals have to pass through a processing procedure consisting mainly noise filtration and signal normalizing. The processed signal is fed to Arduino, which in turn controls the servo motor rotation.
       
  • Analysis of Radiation Transport through Multileaf Collimators Using
           BEAMnrc Code

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 4Ankit Kajaria, Neeraj Sharma, Shiru Sharma, Satyajit Pradhan, Abhijit Mandal, Lalit. M. AggarwalIn this study, the BEAMnrc Monte Carlo code is used to investigate the characteristics of radiation transported through multileaf collimators (MLC) for 6 MV photon beam produced by Varian linear accelerator. We have used Monte Carlo simulation model to calculate radiation leakage as a function of field size for Varian 120-leaf MLC by accurate modelling of the complex geometry of MLC. We also calculated the effect of MLC on percentage depth dose characteristics, photon spectra and photon average energy distributions. A significant increase in MLC leakage with increase in field size has been observed in our study. Photon spectra and photon average energy distributions are found to be substantially modified by MLC as it removes lower-energy photons resulting in increase of PDDs for MLC blocked fields in comparison to the jaw define open fields. In our study, we have also calculated surface dose and electron fluence spectra for MLC and jaw define fields. Clear increments in surface dose and electron fluence spectra for MLC define fields have been observed. These results suggest that use of MLC to define treatment field increases surface dose.

  • MRI Phase Mismapping Image Artifact Correction

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2016Source: American Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Volume 6, Number 4Ashraf A. Abdallah, Mawia A. HassanMRI machine one of the most significant diagnostic modalities. The only restriction that affects the MRI image is that imaging procedure take very long time comparing with CT scan and other diagnostic modalities, thus old patient, children and the illness people cannot stay without movement inside the magnet therefore artifact (phase mismaping artifact) will affect the MRI image and several miss analysis may occur especially in the neuroanatomical measurements. Many procedure has been use to solve this problem for example before during and after the MRI image reconstruction. In this study the effectiveness of a new retrospective motion correction technique has been applied and tested. Three different section MRI image (coronal, sagittal and axial) were used and given different correction results. That was by develop algorithm to correct the motion blur in the MRI image that corrupted by patient rigid motion. Wiener filter was used as the main restoration procedure by means of angle and length estimation of the motion blur. Motion blur angle and length were estimated using Hough transformer. The technique was applied and tested several time, it gave acceptable correction result in the sagittal image compare with the coronal one but the technique was result in the least motion blur correction in the axial image. Signal to noise ratio was calculated for every image to figure out the degree of the correction technique according to the different estimated angle and length. Signal to noise ratio values were to be through with correction result.
