Abstract Background and Objective Ultrasound diaphragmatic muscle motion characteristics may provide useful information about normal or abnormal diaphragmatic function and indicate diaphragmatic weakness, or paralysis. In the present work we propose and evaluate an integrated semi-automated analysis system for the quantitative analysis of ultrasonic motion from ultrasound diaphragmatic videos. Methods The proposed system was evaluated in simulated videos and in 13 patients, four of whom patients...

Medical image analysis methods require the use of effective representations for differentiating between lesions, diseased regions, and normal structure. Amplitude Modulation - Frequency Modulation (AM-FM) models provide effective representations through physically meaningful descriptors of complex non-stationary structures that can differentiate between the different lesions and normal structure. Based on AM-FM models, medical images are decomposed into AM-FM components where the instantaneous f...

Video compression is the core technology in mobile (mHealth) and electronic (eHealth) health video streaming applications. With global video traffic projected to reach 82% of all Internet traffic by 2022, there is a strong need to develop efficient compression algorithms to accommodate expected future growth. For the first time in decades, and especially since ISO/IEC MPEG and ITU-T VCEG expert groups strategically joined forces to develop the highly successful H.264/AVC standard, we have two di...
Recent advancements in Virtual Reality (VR) immersive technologies provide new tools for the development of novel and promising applications for neurological rehabilitation. The purpose of this paper is to review the emerging VR applications developed for the evaluation and treatment of patients with neurological diseases. We start by discussing the impact of novel VR tasks that encourage and facilitate the patient's empowerment and involvement in the rehabilitation process. Then, a systematic r...

Despite the recent recognition of the value of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in healthcare, barriers to further adoption remain, mainly due to their "black box" nature and the algorithm's inability to explain its results. In this paper we present and propose a methodology of applying argumentation on top of machine learning to build explainable AI (XAI) models. We compare our results with Random Forests and an SVM classifier that was considered best for the same dataset in [1].

Population ageing is already having an impact on societies. This study briefly reviews associated technologies employed within the framework of elderly care, namely: robotic nursing, ambient assisted living and assistive robotics. Their current status is considered together with their potential and the associated implementation challenges.

Precision medicine promises better healthcare delivery by improving clinical practice. Using evidence-based substratification of patients, the objective is to achieve better prognosis, diagnosis, and treatment that will transform existing clinical pathways toward optimizing care for the specific needs of each patient. The wealth of today's healthcare data, often characterized as big data, provides invaluable resources toward new knowledge discovery that has the potential to advance precision med...
