  1. 1. Towards Intelligent Deformable Models for Medical Image Analysis

    Författare :Ghassan Hamarneh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :shape modeling; deformable models; principal component analysis; echocardiography; snakes; active shape models; deformable spatio-temporal shape models; medial-based shape profiles; statistical shape variation; spatio-temporal shape analysis; magnetic resonance imaging; hierarchical regional principal component analysis; oral lesions; dynamic programming; segmentation; spring-mass model; shape deformation; optical flow; medical image analysis; artificial life; physics-based modeling; deformable organisms; digital color images; medial axis; active contour models;

    Sammanfattning : Medical imaging continues to permeate the practice of medicine, but automated yet accurate segmentation and labeling of anatomical structures continues to be a major obstacle to computerized medical image analysis (MIA). Deformable models, with its profound roots in estimation theory, optimization, and physics-based dynamical systems, represent a powerful approach to the general problem of medical image segmentation.

  2. 2. Enhanced block sparse signal recovery and bayesian hierarchical models with applications

    Författare :Jianfeng Wang; Jun Yu; Anders Garpebring; Jia Li; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magnetic resonance imaging; Bayesian hierarchical models; Weather Research and Forecasting; Compressive sensing; Block sparsity; Multivariate isotropic symmetric a-stable distribution; q-ratio block constrained minimal singular value;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is carried out within two projects ‘Statistical modelling and intelligentdata sampling in Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron-emission tomography(PET) measurements for cancer therapy assessment’ and ‘WindCoE -Nordic Wind Energy Center’ during my PhD study. It mainly focuses on applicationsof Bayesian hierarchical models (BHMs) and theoretical developments ofcompressive sensing (CS). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Spatial analysis and modeling of nerve fiber patterns

    Författare :Claes Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bayesian field theory; Diabetic neuropathies; Multilevel models Statistics ; Institutionen för matematiska vetenskaper. Tillämpad matematik och statistik.; CTH; hierarchical models; Bayesian estimation; epidermal nerve fibers; cluster processes; spatial point processes; diabetic neuropathy;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetic neuropathy is a condition associated with diabetes affecting the epidermal nerve fibers (ENFs). This thesis presents analysis methods and models for ENF data, with two main puroposes: to find early signs of diabetic neuropathy and to characterize how this condition changes the nerve fiber structure.

  4. 4. Cognitive abilities - aspects of structure, process and measurement

    Författare :Berit Carlstedt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Cognitive abilities; factor models of intelligence; Enlistment battery; hierarchical models; item sequencing; construct validity; differentiation hypothesis; test evaluation; structural equation modeling;

    Sammanfattning : The overall purpose of the thesis is to describe the development of the Swedish system of measuring cognitive abilities applied at enlistment of conscripts. The Enlistment Battery has been used for more than fifty years to classify 18-year old men into military positions for their compulsory service. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hierarchical Modeling of Road Traffic Networks

    Författare :Eugene Merritt; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :traffic simulation models; calibration and validation; field data collection;

    Sammanfattning : The main objective of the thesis was to develop and applymethodologies for analysis and evaluation of the applicabilityof different types of road traffic simulation models for urbantraffic conditions. For this purpose a number of models ofmacroscopic, mesoscopic and microscopic type were applied,calibrated, validated and analyzed using extensive field datacollection to obtain traffic flow, travel time and queue-lengthdata for major road networks in Stockholm and Uppsala.
