D3 Accomplishments Abstract accepted for 2013 SPIE Medical Imaging Conference: J. A. Cross, B. McHenry, T.G. Schmidt, Quantifying cross scatter in biplane fluoroscopy motion analysis systems. D3 Challenges & Solutions Challenges/Solutions Challenge: Manual feature extraction for 3D
localization was too time intensive and error prone to be practical. Solution: We evaluated and are implementing public domain software for localization through modelbased tracking. Our attempt at using JointTrack was unsuccessful. We are now using Autoscoper from Brown University D3 Opportunities The image processing software we are using for localization is a conglomeration of several available software packages. A potential
opportunity is to integrate these software algorithms into one package which could be disseminated Follow-up motion analysis study for different shoe wear conditions using developed system Year 3 Plans Complete IRB approval process for normal subject trial Normal subject trial to demonstrate feasibility of kinematic and kinetic analysis in bare and
Presentation as generalized relations, crosstabs, bar charts, pie charts, or rules contrasting measures to reflect comparison between target and contrasting classes e.g. count% Quantitative Discriminant Rules Cj = target class qa = a generalized tuple covers some tuples of class...
The surface modification of micron-sized aluminum powders was done by: (1) dry coating nano-particles of silica, titania and carbon black onto the surface of spherical aluminum powders and (2) chemically and physically altering the surface properties of the same powders...
, the Federal Court of Appeal, in obiter dicta, was equivocal as to the necessity of disclosure of the factual basis of the prediction. The Federal Court of Appeal observed that "where the factual basis is reliant on . data....
If the individuals in the population differ in some qualitative way, we often wish to estimate the proportion / fraction / percentage of the population with some given property. For example: We track the sex of purchasers of our product,...
As the name implies, a Pathwayis a way through; a roadmap.. Specifically, Pathway. is the term used throughout Texas House Bill 5. In HB5, Pathway. describes the sequence of courses a student must take to graduate on the Foundation High...
"Article of the Week" Each week, students read an assigned article on a recent event that's been published from a credible source. Gallagher has the articles thatdeal with issue around the world to help students become global thinkers.
