A Learning Based Statistical Approach for Combining Multiple Measurements in Electrocardiographic Imaging

Kalman filter has been applied in literature to in-verse electrocardiography problem as a spatio-temporalmethod. However, there is still an open question of howthe essential parameters in the state-space representationare found without claiming strong assumptions. In thisstudy, we proposed a maximum likelihood (ML) estimationbased method which incorporates multiple body surfacemeasurements to estimate the parameters that are essen-tial to use Kalman filter.Our proposed approach, Maximum Likelihood Infer-ence & Filtering (MLIF), was compared with zero orderTikhonov regularization and Bayesian maximum a poste-riori estimation (BMAP) by using three different trainingsets under two different measurement noise levels. Theresults showed that mean correlation coefficient (CC) forTikhonov regularization is 0.60, and mean CC ranges 0.64to 0.82, and 0.66 to 0.99 for Bayesian MAP and MLIF un-der 30 dB SNR measurement noise, respectively. Under10 dB SNR, mean CC is 0.37 for Tikhonov regularization,and mean CC ranges 0.53 to 0.78, and 0.53 to 0.98 forBayesian MAP and MLIF, respectively.


An adaptive PHD filter for tracking with unknown sensor characteristics
Zhao, Yuxin; Yin, Feng; Gunnarsson, Fredrik; Amirijoo, Mehdi; Özkan, Emre; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2013-07-09)
The particle filter provides a general solution to the nonlinear filtering problem with arbitrarily accuracy. However, the curse of dimensionality prevents its application in cases where the state dimensionality is high. Further, estimation of stationary parameters is a known challenge in a particle filter framework. We suggest a marginalization approach for the case of unknown noise distribution parameters that avoid both aforementioned problem. First, the standard approach of augmenting the state vector w...
Continuous-time nonlinear estimation filters using UKF-aided gaussian sum representations
Gökçe, Murat; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
A nonlinear filtering method is developed for continuous-time nonlinear systems with observations/measurements carried out in discrete-time by means of UKFaided Gaussian sum representations. The time evolution of the probability density function (pdf) of the state variables (or the a priori pdf) is approximated by solving the Fokker-Planck equation numerically using Euler’s method. At every Euler step, the values of the a priori pdf are evaluated at deterministic sample points. These values are used with Ga...
A DRBEM Approach for the STOKES Eigenvalue Problem
Tezer, Münevver; Türk, Önder (2016-07-04)
In this study, we propose a novel approach based on the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) to approximate the solutions of various Steklov eigenvalue problems. The method consists in weighting the governing differential equation with the fundamental solutions of the Laplace equation where the definition of interior nodes is not necessary for the solution on the boundary. DRBEM constitutes a promising tool to characterize such problems due to the fact that the boundary conditions on part or all...
Fully computable convergence analysis of discontinous Galerkin finite element approximation with an arbitrary number of levels of hanging nodes
Özışık, Sevtap; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Riviere, Beatrice M.; Department of Mathematics (2012)
In this thesis, we analyze an adaptive discontinuous finite element method for symmetric second order linear elliptic operators. Moreover, we obtain a fully computable convergence analysis on the broken energy seminorm in first order symmetric interior penalty discontin- uous Galerkin finite element approximations of this problem. The method is formulated on nonconforming meshes made of triangular elements with first order polynomial in two di- mension. We use an estimator which is completely free of unknow...
Comparison of Bayesian MAP Estimation and Kalman Filter Methods in the Solution of Spatio-Temporal Inverse ECG Problem
Aydin, Umit; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim (2009-09-12)
In this study, spatial only, and spatio-temporal Bayesian Maximum a Posteriori (MAP) methods and an another spatio-temporal method, the Kalman filter approach, are used to solve the inverse electrocardiography (ECG) problem. Training sets are used to obtain the required a priori information for all methods. Two different approaches are employed to calculate the state transition matrix (STM), which maps the epicardial potentials in two consecutive time instants in the Kalman filter method. The first one uses...
