Screening for Atrial Fibrillation during Automatic Blood Pressure Measurements
Atrial fibrillation (Afib) contributes significantly to overall cardiovascular risk. Widespread screening for Afib in primary care is sometimes performed by palpation, but suffers from low accuracy and is dependent on clinician experience. Algorithms implemented on oscillometric blood pressure devices can... Read more

Skull Modeling Effects in Conductivity Estimates Using Parametric Electrical Impedance Tomography
We estimate scalp, skull, compact bone and marrow bone electrical conductivity values using Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) measurements and assess the influence of skull modeling details on the estimates. We collected high density EIT data with 128- and 256-channel EEG... Read more

QRS Complex Detection and Measurement Algorithms for Multichannel ECGs in Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Patients
    Abstract We developed an automated approach for QRS complex detection and QRS duration (QRSd) measurement that can effectively analyze multichannel electrocardiograms (MECGs) acquired during abnormal conduction and pacing in heart failure and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) patients to enable the use...

Physiological Recording in the MRI Environment (PRiME): MRI-Compatible Hemodynamic Recording System
          Hemodynamic recording during interventional cardiovascular procedures is essential for procedural guidance, monitoring patient status, and collection of diagnostic information. Recent advances have made interventions guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) possible and attractive in certain clinical scenarios. However, in the... Read more

A Subspace Approach to the Structural Decomposition and Identification of Ankle Joint Dynamic Stiffness
The torque developed at a joint in response to a position change arises from both neural and mechanical mechanisms. Torques initiated by mechanical mechanisms, i.e. intrinsic torque, arise from the mechanical properties of the joint and tissues. Torques generated by... Read more

Orientation Independent Catheter-Based Characterization of Myocardial Activation
Cardiac electrogram (EGM) signals and electrophysiologic (EP) characteristics derived from them such as amplitude and timing are central to the diagnosis and therapeutic management of arrhythmias. Bipolar EGMs are often used but possess polarity and shape dependence on catheter orientation... Read more

Learning Recurrent Waveforms within EEGs
Austin J. Brockmeier,  Jose C. Principe, University of Liverpool, UK, University of Florida, USA When experts analyze EEGs they look for landmarks in the traces corresponding to established waveform patterns, such as phasic events of particular frequency or morphology. Lengthy records motivate automated analysis... Read more
