  • THE PLANE RADIOGRAPH OF THE KNEE FOR HIGH TIBIAL OSTEOTOMY ASSESSMENT IS
           IN CONTRAST TO STANDING ALIGNMENT VIRTUALLY ELABORATED HANDLING BASED
           PRE-OPERATION PLANNING
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO) is a popular approach among contemporary corrective lower extremity procedures. As a surgical method in the HTO, the Open-Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy (OWHTO) preserves leg length, avoids dissection near the nerve and allows for fine-tuning of the angle by gradually inserting a wedge into a tibia. Nowadays, the gold standard approach to the OWHTO is based on the patient’s Long-Leg Radiograph (LLR) assessment. These standard weight bearing views of the lower extremity have their own practical advantages. This study aims to closely look at existing gold standard OWHTO planning method and assess its accuracy compared to a true patient’s weight bearing posture. The study attempts to introduce a method which can be used as a template for the HTO planning and has less weakness than the existing method. This method will assess the lower limb weight bearing three-dimensionally using a patient specific Computer Tomography (CT) data. The method has been validated using a Standing Alignment Virtually Elaborated Handling (SAVEH) of the lower limb using fluoroscopy giving an in vivo dynamic weight bearing analysis of the knee. The outcome of typical examples on assessment of the natural mechanical axis of the knee using proposed method has shown more accuracy than common two-dimensional LLR image control method. The study concluded that looking at the OWHTO without any address of the real three-dimensional orientation of the knee bones specially during standing phase of gait may be a missing point of view on OWHTO surgery.

  • NONLINEAR VOLTERRA COEFFICIENTS FOR FEATURE EXTRACTION IN SLEEP STAGE
           CLASSIFICATION
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      This paper presents a new method for sleep scoring based on nonlinear Volterra features of EEG signals by using only one single EEG channel. The Volterra features are extracted from characteristic waves of EEG signals which can characterize different sleep stages individually. The recurrent neural classifier takes all the features extracted on 30s epochs from EEG signals and assigns them to one of the five possible stages: Wakefulness, NREM 1, NREM 2, SWS, and REM. Eight sleep recordings obtained from Caucasian males and females without any medication are utilized to validate the proposed method. Moreover, the performance of the proposed classifier in comparison with other classifiers is presented. The classification rate of the proposed classifier is better than that of the other classifier that does not use nonlinear Volterra feature. The results demonstrate that the proposed classifier with nonlinear Volterra features of the characteristic waves of EEG signals can classify sleep stages more efficiently and accurately using only a single EEG channel.

  • A FAST ADAPTIVE BALLOON ACTIVE CONTOUR FOR IMAGE SEGMENTATION
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      Active Contour Models (ACM) have been widely used for segmentation in many computer vision applications. These models are defined by an energy functional attached to an initial curve that evolves under some constraints to extract desired objects in the image. New models are proposed, and existing techniques are investigated and improved in different domains. Among these ACM, Balloon ACM is an edge-based model that adds a normal force as constraint making the curve to have more dynamic behaviors and more effectiveness in detecting objects boundary. However, some problems have been pointed out including segmentation of complex shape and high runtime processing. In this paper, we develop a new method -called Fast Adaptive Balloon (FAB)- sufficient to segment complex shape with lower computational complexity. The proposed definition for balloon force achieves satisfactory segmentation performance compared with other ACMs using both synthetic and medical images in two dimension. The results demonstrate the accuracy and effectiveness in segmentation besides the convergence speed.

  • DIFFERENT GENOMIC SIGNAL PROCESSING METHODS FOR EUKARYOTIC GENE
           PREDICTION: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      Bioinformatics field has now solidly settled itself as a control in molecular biology and incorporates an extensive variety of branches of knowledge from structural biology, genomics to gene expression studies. Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. Genomic signal processing (GSP) techniques have been connected most all around in bioinformatics and will keep on assuming an essential part in the investigation of biomedical issues. GSP refers to using the digital signal processing (DSP) methods for genomic data (e.g. DNA sequences) analysis. Recently, applications of GSP in bioinformatics have obtained great consideration such as identification of DNA protein coding regions, identification of reading frames, cancer detection and others. Cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases that the world faces and has raised the death rate in recent years, it is known medically as malignant neoplasm, so detection of it at the early stage can yield a promising approach to determine and take actions to treat with this risk. GSP is a method which can be used to detect the cancerous cells that are often caused due to genetic abnormality. This systematic review discusses some of the GSP applications in bioinformatics generally. The GSP techniques, used for cancer detection especially, are presented to collect the recent results and what has been reached at this point to be a new subject of research.

  • EFFECTS OF ULTRASOUND ON ARTEMIA CYST INCUBATION
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      The present work aims to test the bioeffects of ultrasounds on cyst formation in the crustacean Artemia salina. It is designed to identify which durations of ultrasonic exposure are capable of influencing hatching rates. The transducers used in the experiment were operated at resonant (0.23[math]MHz and 4.7[math]MHz) and non-resonant (0.5[math]MHz and 1[math]MHz) frequencies and the intensities of 3.25[math]mW/cm2 and 13.63[math]mW/cm2. The Rayleigh–Plesset theoretical framework was used to calculate the dynamics of shell-encapsulated cysts. The duration of ultrasound exposure was approximately 2[math]min every 2[math]h, repeated 6 times in the culture range of 1–15[math]h. The results demonstrate that irradiation at an intensity of 13.63[math]mW/cm2 and a driving frequency of 0.23[math]MHz increased the number of hatched larvae by approximately 31.7%, compared with unexposed control samples. In conclusion, the theoretical model provided a useful means of predicting the most efficient frequency of sonication.

  • A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE NON-PARAMETRIC AND FUZZY LOGIC-BASED
           CLASSIFICATIONS IN RECOGNITION OF HUMAN DAILY ACTIVITIES
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      Appropriate and accurate detection of the people like the elderly and patients suffering from imbalanced-oriented problems is a significant step to implement the necessary actions in order to enhance quality of life and increase their independence during their life. The aim of this paper was to investigate the differences in performance of parametric and non-parametric classifiers in recognition of daily activities of people. As daily affairs of human being can change dynamically, new patterns may emerge as well as an old habit may be forgotten or stopped to be used. It is difficult to build a classifier that will have a full description of all possible ways to perform an activity. In this research, for exact identification of everyday activities, data collected from information of four accelerometers in noteworthy points of body which have the greatest role in the process of identifying and separating activities. This dataset was acquired from UCI Machine Learning database. After extraction of convenient features, different algorithms including KNN and Neuro-fuzzy classifiers were applied to data to check the rate of accuracy in exact recognition of daily activities. The results showed that the KNN classifier as anon-parametric classifier encompasses the highest accuracy rate of about 99.758[math]. It is concluded that recognizing activities using multiple small body-worn accelerometers and implementing an optimized unobtrusive approach can lead us to a significant result.

  • A NEW METHOD FOR SIGNATURE VERIFICATION BASED ON PHYSIOLOGICAL
           CHARACTERISTICS OF HAND MUSCLES AND TENDONS
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      Signature authentication with static and dynamic features of signature has been studied for decades, in this paper a novel and new method based on estimating elasticity and viscoelasticity characteristics of the muscles and tendons of index finger of the right hand was presented and the angles between the finger knuckles were collected by data collection glove and the location of digital pen tip on sensitive pad is stored in computer too. With NMC model and writing required mathematical equations and inverse modeling, physiological characteristics of muscles and tendons of right hand were estimated by LMS criteria. This approach has been applied on 30 right-hand persons that of each individual 5 genuine signature and some ordinary forgers to counterfeit genuine signature only by seeing the shape of original signature. 93.4% forgery signatures could have been recognized from genuine and only 6.6% could not have been detected. For verification, we used 5-fold cross-validation, with mean of EER[math] 3.57 and standard deviation of EER[math] 0.736. Therefore, we identified the physiological viscoelasticity and elasticity of muscles and tendons of hand as a new biometric.

  • A PILOT STUDY ON THETA FREQUENCY OF PRESCHOOL CHILDREN WITH DIFFERENT
           PLAYING ACTIVITIES AT PREFRONTAL CORTEX
    • Abstract: Biomedical Engineering: Applications, Basis and Communications, Volume 29, Issue 01, February 2017.
      Theta frequency at the prefrontal cortex (PFC) is often related to the cognitive process in early childhood. In the present study, we focused on the types of playing activities that could enhance the theta frequency in preschoolers at their PFC area with study on individual brainwaves. The selected playing activities included LEGO and wooden blocks with and without instruction, iPad apps and flash card comparison. A total of 12 individual cases were analyzed in this study. The mean theta amplitudes of their PFC were measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG). Children brainwaves showed profoundly high theta frequency while playing LEGO without guidance. Meanwhile, tablet-based computer educational tool with pictures, sound, and motion initiated greater theta frequency as compared to the conventional flash card. Brainwaves analysis is a great tool to determine the cognitive development of children, based on the types of activities allocated to them.
