A new technique for line interference monitoring and reduction in biopotential amplifiers

Ider, Yusuf Ziya
Koymen, H.
Hardware developed to record the common mode line frequency signal on the body simultaneously with the ECG lead signals of a 15-channel computerized cardiograph is described. This interference reference signal and its quadrature, obtained by software, are linearly combined to be subtracted from any one of the channels to reduce the interference to below the quantization level of the 12 b A/D converter. Coefficients of the linear combination are estimated using linear regression, which is applied to the relatively isoelectric regions of the data, excluding the QRS complexes. Since the interference reference signal is available in real time, simultaneously with the ECG signals, another software approach is adopted in which an adaptive interference reduction algorithm is used to cope with varying interference. A recursive-least-squares algorithm with forgetting factor is used to update the coefficients. This updating mechanism is gated by the output of a software QRS detector. Results regarding the performance of both the offline and the adaptive algorithms are given, and the effects of nonisoelectric portions of the ECG lead signals on the estimation of the coefficients are quantified.

Implementation and comparison of reconstruction algorithms for magnetic resonance-electric impedance tomography (mr-eit)
Martin Lorca, Dario; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2007)
In magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT), crosssectional images of a conductivity distribution are reconstructed. When current is injected to a conductor, it generates a magnetic field, which can be measured by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. MR-EIT reconstruction algorithms can be grouped into two: current density based reconstruction algorithms (Type-I) and magnetic flux density based reconstruction algorithms (Type-II). The aim of this study is to implement a series of r...
13.56 MHz Triple Mode Rectifier Circuit with Extended Coupling Range for Wirelessly Powered Implantable Medical Devices.
Engur, Yasemin; Yigit, Halil Andac; Külah, Haluk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-12-25)
In this work, a wide input/output range triple mode rectifier circuit operating at 13.56 MHz is implemented to power up medical implants. The proposed novel multi-mode rectifier circuit charges the load for an extended coupling range and eliminates the requirement of alignment magnets. The charging process is achieved in three different modes based on the voltage level of the received signal affected by the distance and the alignment of the inductively coupled coils. Current mode (CM) circuit is activated f...
A Kalman filter-based approach to reduce the effects of geometric errors and the measurement noise in the inverse ECG problem
Aydin, Umit; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-09-01)
In this article, we aimed to reduce the effects of geometric errors and measurement noise on the inverse problem of Electrocardiography (ECG) solutions. We used the Kalman filter to solve the inverse problem in terms of epicardial potential distributions. The geometric errors were introduced into the problem via wrong determination of the size and location of the heart in simulations. An error model, which is called the enhanced error model (EEM), was modified to be used in inverse problem of ECG to compens...
A New Approach to Investigation of the Relationship of VLF Signals by Using Longitudinal Analysis Models
Guzel, E.; Yaşar, M.; Kılıç, M. B.; Canyılmaz, M. (Hindawi Limited, 2013)
Longitudinal analysis models are applied to analyze very low frequency (VLF) electromagnetic waves signals. They are useful in realization of nuance of relationship between parameters of concern which change over time. VLF data are so important for the communication and determining the disturbances in the lower ionosphere. In this study, we used a four-day VLF signal data which come from transmitter stations located at two different countries to Elazi. g receiver system. A very important feature of this dat...
Parallel implementation of the accelerated BEM approach for EMSI of the human brain
ATASEVEN, YOLDAŞ; Akalin-Acar, Z.; Acar, C. E.; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-07-01)
Boundary element method (BEM) is one of the numerical methods which is commonly used to solve the forward problem (FP) of electro-magnetic source imaging with realistic head geometries. Application of BEM generates large systems of linear equations with dense matrices. Generation and solution of these matrix equations are time and memory consuming. This study presents a relatively cheap and effective solution for parallel implementation of the BEM to reduce the processing times to clinically acceptable valu...
