Objective Renal cortical scintigraphy is a well-established functional imaging technique for visual analysis of radiopharmaceutical tracer distribution. However, the visual evaluation is subjective, causing interobserver variability, especially in a quantifiable number of scars. The purpose of this study was to develop new computerized methods in renal cortical scintigraphy image interpretation, particularly addressing activity distribution and cortex continuity (scars).


Deep learning for the classification of bipolar disorder using fNIRS measurements
Evgin, Haluk Barkın; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-2-3)
Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neural imaging method that is proved to be prominent in the classification of psychiatric disorders, and assertive accuracy results are being obtained using fNIRS. High temporal resolution, feasibility, and partial endurance to head movements are the traits that are highlighting fNIRS among other imaging methods. fNIRS data is a one dimensional multi-channeled time series. In this thesis, bipolar disorder is classified using some state of the art deep learn...

Background: The electroencephalogram (EEG) emotion classification/recognition is one of the popular issues for advanced signal classification. However, it is difficult to manually screen the EEG signals as they are highly nonlinear and non-stationary. Methods: This paper introduces a novel nonlinear and multileveled features-based automatic EEG emotion classification method. Our presented EEG classification model uses feature vector creation deploying an S-Box-based local pattern with a decomposition (tunab...

In this study, a new method is proposed for analyzing and classifying images obtained by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) from multiple subjects. Considering the multi level structure of the brain and success of deep learning architectures on extracting hierarchical representations from raw data, these architectures are used in this thesis. Initially, the S500 data set collected in the scope of Human Connectome Project (HCP) is used to train formed deep neural networks in an unsupervised fashion...

In this study, a novel virtual reality-based interactive method combined with the application of a graphical processing unit (GPU) is proposed for the semiautomatic segmentation of 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. The key point of our approach is to use haptic force feedback guidance for the selection of seed points in a bounded volume with similar intensity and gradient. For the automatic determination of a bounded volume of segmentation in real time, parallel computation on the GPU is use...
Efficient Bayesian track-before-detect
Tekinalp, Serhat; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2006-10-11)
This paper presents a novel Bayesian recursive track-before-detect (TBD) algorithm for detection and tracking of dim targets in optical image sequences. The algorithm eliminates the need for storing past observations by recursively incorporating new data acquired through sensor to the existing information. It calculates the likelihood ratio for optimal detection and estimates target state simultaneously. The technique does not require velocity-matched filtering and hence, it is capable of detecting any targ...
