In this study, the aim is to design a respiratory motion prediction algorithm which can be used to compensate for this physiological disturbance in medical operations where respiration limits operation accuracy. For this purpose, a new Kalman filter has been developed for tracking quasi-periodic signals approximated as finite Fourier series. Instead of relying on approximations provided by Extended Kalman Filter or Unscented Kalman Filter, our filter performs the exact calculation of the mean and covariances of interest. Our results indicate that the theoretically derived mean and covariance calculations result in either comparable or better estimation performance in terms of convergence speed and output estimation error depending on the circumstances. We then employ an expectation maximization algorithm to find the maximum likelihood estimates of the process noise with known measurement noise statistics. Coupled with this, the new filter is able to track the output despite breathing irregularities. However, the degree of irregularity may cause divergence from the assumed underlying model.

Onak, Onder Nazim; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-05-01)
In the inverse electrocardiography (ECG) problem, the goal is to reconstruct the heart's electrical activity from multichannel body surface potentials and a mathematical model of the torso. Over the years, researchers have employed various approaches to solve this ill-posed problem including regularization, optimization, and statistical estimation. It is still a topic of interest especially for researchers and clinicians whose goal is to adopt this technique in clinical applications. Among the wide range of...
ESTIMATION OF TISSUE RESISTIVITIES FROM MULTIPLE-ELECTRODE IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENTS
Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; WOLF, PD (IOP Publishing, 1994-01-01)
In order to measure in vivo resistivity of tissues in the thorax, the possibility of combining anatomical data extracted from high-resolution images with multiple-electrode impedance measurements, a priori knowledge of the range of tissue resistivities, and a priori data on the instrumentation noise is assessed in this study. A statistically constrained minimum-mean-square error estimator (MIMSEE) that minimizes the effects of linearization errors and instrumentation noise is developed and compared to the c...
Estimation of the Balance-Keeping Control Law Applied by a Human Being Upon a Sudden Sagittal Tilt Perturbation
BİLGİN, NURDAN; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2019-04-01)
This study aims to estimate the control law employed by the central nervous system (CNS) to keep a person in balance after a sudden disturbance. For this aim, several experiments were carried out, in which the subjects were perturbed sagittally by using a single-axis tilt-platform and their motions were recorded with appropriate sensors. The analysis of the experimental results leads to the contribution of this paper as a conjecture that the CNS commands the muscular actuators of the joints according to an ...

One of the aims of the study, is to develop a numerical analysis tool for thermochemical ablation problem under hypersonic flow conditions. The other aim is to include the effects of the graphite ablation to a design optimization tool which uses adjoint method. In this study, IRV2 geometry is selected as the original geometry and optimization study is performed under reacting flow conditions. Drag coefficient of the geometry is reduced without increasing the stagnation point temperature. After the optimizat...
Predicting time-dependent remodeling of bone around immediately loaded dental implants with different designs
Eser, Atilim; Tönük, Ergin; Akça, Kıvanç; Cehreli, Murat Cavit (Elsevier BV, 2010-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to predict time-dependent biomechanics of bone around cylindrical screw dental implants with different macrogeometric designs under simulated immediate loading condition. The remodeling of bone around a parallel-sided and a tapered dental implant of same length was studied under 100 N oblique load by implementing the Stanford theory into three-dimensional finite element models. The results of the analyses were examined in five time intervals consisting loading immediately after...
