In this paper, electrical impedance tomography (EIT) ventilation images from a group of 12 patients (11 patients with emphysema and one patient with only chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (chronic bronchitis)) and a group of 15 normal subjects were acquired using a Sheffield mark 1 EIT system, at the levels of second, fourth and sixth intercostal spaces. Patients were diagnosed based on CT scans of the thorax, pulmonary function tests and posteroanterior x-ray graphs. One of the patients with emphysema has also a malignant lung tumour. Ventilation-related conductivity changes at total lung capacity (TLC) relative to residual volume were measured quantitatively in EIT images. These quantitative values demonstrate marked differences compared to those values obtained from the a images of 15 normal subjects. The EIT images of the patients were also compared with the cr images.

Investigation of sequential properties of snoring episodes for obstructive sleep apnoea identification
ÇAVUŞOĞLU, MUSTAFA; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Kamaşak, Mustafa Ersel; EROĞUL, OSMAN; AKÇAM, TİMUR (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-01)
In this paper, 'snore regularity' is studied in terms of the variations of snoring sound episode durations, separations and average powers in simple snorers and in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients. The goal was to explore the possibility of distinguishing among simple snorers and OSA patients using only sleep sound recordings of individuals and to ultimately eliminate the need for spending a whole night in the clinic for polysomnographic recording. Sequences that contain snoring episode durations (SE...
Nonlinear viscoelastic material property estimation of lower extremity residual limb tissues
Tönük, Ergin (ASME International, 2004-04-01)
Axisymmetric nonlinear finite-element analysis was used to simulate force-relaxation and creep data obtained during in vivo indentation of the residual limb sofa tissues of six individuals with trans-tibial amputation [1]. The finite-element models facilitated estimation of an appropriate set of nonlinear viscoelastic material coefficients of extended James-Green-Simpson material formulation for bulk soft tissue at discrete, clinically relevant test locations. The results indicate that over 90% of the exper...
Improving the sub-cortical gm segmentation using evolutionary hierarchical region merging
Çiftçioğlu, Mustafa Ulaş; Gökçay, Didem; Department of Medical Informatics (2011)
Segmentation of sub-cortical Gray Matter (GM) structures in magnetic resonance brain images is crucial in clinic and research for many purposes such as early diagnosis of neurological diseases, guidance of surgical operations and longitudinal volumetric studies. Unfortunately, the algorithms that segment the brain into 3 tissues usually suffer from poor performance in the sub-cortical region. In order to increase the detection of sub-cortical GM structures, an evolutionary hierarchical region merging approa...
Two alternatives for magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography: injected or induced current
Eroglu, Hasan H.; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (IOP Publishing, 2016-11-01)
In this paper, the abilities of injected current magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) and induced current magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (ICMREIT) systems to differentiate a conductivity perturbation from an otherwise uniform conductivity distribution are compared. The sensitivity of MREIT measurements changes as a function of distance to the electrodes used for current injection. The sensitivity of ICMREIT measurements is related to the radial location, being a min...
Predicting bone remodeling around tissue- and bone-level dental implants used in reduced bone width
Eser, Atilim; Tönük, Ergin; Akça, Kıvanç; Dard, Michel M.; Cehreli, Murat Cavit (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-03)
The objective of this study was to predict time-dependent bone remodeling around tissue- and bone-level dental implants used in patients with reduced bone width. The remodeling of bone around titanium tissue-level, and titanium and titanium-zirconium alloy bone-level implants was studied under 100 N oblique load for one month by implementing the Stanford theory into three-dimensional finite element models. Maximum principal stress, minimum principal stress, and strain energy density in pen-implant bone and ...
