BackgroundDiabetic retinopathy (DR) is a microvascular complication of diabetes and a leading cause of blindness in working-age adults. The likelihood of visual impairment associated with DR is two-fold higher in the African-American (AA) compared to non-Hispanic white. Although alterations in retinal vessel oxygenation and morphology have been rep...

The use of camera traps is a nonintrusive monitoring method to obtain valuable information about the appearance and behavior of wild animals. However, each study generates thousands of pictures and extracting information remains mostly an expensive, time-consuming manual task. Nevertheless, image recognition and analyzing technologies combined with...
To investigate the potential of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to distinguish between normal and pathologic thyroid tissue, 3D OCT images were acquired on ex vivo thyroid samples from adult subjects (n=22) diagnosed with a variety of pathologies. The follicular structure was analyzed in terms of count, size, density and sphericity. Results show...

Background Digitalization and artificial intelligence have an important impact on the way microbiology laboratories will work in the near future. Opportunities and challenges lie ahead to digitalize the microbiological workflows. Making efficient use of big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in clinical microbiology requires a prof...
This paper addresses the use of a data analysis tool, known as robust principal component analysis (RPCA), in the context of change detection (CD) in ultrawideband (UWB) very high-frequency (VHF) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The method considers image pairs of the same scene acquired at different time instants. The CD method aims to maxim...
