The LPI was present in 4th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2016), organised by the UGR, hold last April at Granada. Full contributions are published in Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) edited by Springer. A full communication entitled "An Automated Tensorial Classification Procedure for Left Ventricular Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy " was sent to the conference and consequently presented in oral session.
A new software for MRI reconstruction has been made available at http://www.lpi.tel.uva.es/~jroyval, in the software section.
This package implements with the GW-CS reconstruction method described in  with the posterior improvements of the Jacobian Weighted temporal Total Variation (JW-tTV) introduced in .
The LPI was present in 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), hold last April at Prague. ISBI is a joint initiative of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). Four communication were sent to the conference, all of the presented in oral sessions.
The paper entitled "Jacobian Weighted Temporal Total Variation for Motion Compensated Compressed Sensing Reconstruction of Dynamic MRI" has been accepted for publication at Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and it is currently in press.
The thesis "Machine Learning and Stochastic Modelling Approaches for Biomedical Signal Analysis", authored by Diego Martín-Martínez and supervised by Juan Pablo Casaseca and Carlos Alberola-López has been recently defended. We thank all the member of the committee, specially Dr. Savino, Dr McClean and Dr. Laguna for finding room in their tights agendas for this event. More information about the thesis in this link.
El proyecto de investigación PROCESADO, ANALISIS Y REPRESENTACION DE IMAGENES DE DIFUSION. CUANTIFICACION DE LA REPARACION NEURONAL TRAS INFARTO, TRATAMIENTO DEL TDAH Y EVALUACION DE TUMORES CEREBRALES, con referencia TEC2010-17982, financiado por el Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad y finalizado en diciembre de 2013, acaba de recibir la evaluación del informe de seguimiento científico-técnico por parte del ministerio con la calificación de MUY SATISFACTORIO.
A new article on the effect that Acquisition Parameters over DTI scalars has been published on the open-source journal PLOS One: "Impact of MR Acquisition Parameters on DTI Scalar Indexes: A Tractography Based Approach". This study presents an analysis on the impact of simultaneous changes in multiple parameters: number of gradient directions, b-value and voxel resolution over scalar measures such as the Fractional Anisotropy (FA) or the Mean Diffusivity (MD) . We employ a tractography-based approach.
The 2015 Jack Perkins Prize for the best paper in the journal Medical Physics and Engineering has been awarded to the 2014 paper entitled "Automatic detection of wakefulness and rest intervals in actigraphic signals: A data driven approach" co--authored by Diego Martín-Martínez (former PhD student at LPI and currently at Ernst and Young), Pablo Casaseca-de-la-Higuera (currently at the University of West Scotland at Paisley), the physicians Jesús Andrés-de-Llano, J.R. Garmendia and Susana Alberola-López, and by Carlos Alberola-López, professor at the University of Valladolid.
