    • METHODS FOR PROCESSING 3D IMAGES FOR BREAST MORPHOLOGY 

      Zhao, Lijuan 1970- (2015-05)
      In this research, two novel algorithms are developed to facilitate quantitative evaluation of breast aesthetics for preoperative planning and postoperative outcome assessment in breast reconstruction surgery in cancer ...
    • Modeling Human Motion for Predicting Usage of Hospital Operating Room 

      Sghir, Ilyes 1990- (2014-08)
      We present a system that exploits existing video streams from an hospital operating room (OR) to infer the OR usage state through Bayesian modeling. We define OR states based on common surgical processes that are relevant ...
    • Modeling Local Behavior for Multi-Person Tracking 

      Yan, Xu 1986- (2014-08)
      Multiple-pedestrian tracking in unconstrained environments is an important task that has received considerable attention from the computer vision community in the past two decades. Accurate multiple-pedestrian tracking can ...
