Full Research Paper Spinal Biomechanics
A Novel Approach for Automatic Calculation of Required Parameters in Spine Surgery using CT Images Row Data

Mojtaba Shahab; Behzad Seyfi; Nasser Fatouraee; Amir Saeid Seddighi

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 1-15

  Spinal deformities are generally associated with lumbar and cervical chronic pain and additionally they disturb the health. In these deformities, lumbar spinal curvature undergone changes in three dimensional space and in most cases, they cause reduction of lung capacities, breathing problems and negative ...  Read More

Kinematic Differences in Participants with ACL-deficient Knees during Stair Ascending with Different Height

Maryam Hajizade; Alireza Hashemi Oskouei; Farzan Ghalichi; Farhad Tabatabai Ghomshe; Mohammad Razi; Gisela Solo

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 17-31

  Patients with ACL deficiency (ACLD) have to use different compensatory mechanisms to maintain their stability during daily activities. The aim of this study is to determine the differences in 3D kinematics and peak ground reaction forces (GRF) between ACL deficient legs and healthy contralateral legs ...  Read More

Numerical Simulation of Stress Distribution in Periodontal Ligament of Incisor and Premolar

Mehran Ashrafi; Farzan Ghalichi; Behnam Mirzakouchaki

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 49-57

  Periodontal ligament (PDL) is a soft fibrous tissuewhich is located between tooth and alveolar bone. Because the tissue is softer than the surrounding tissue, tooth movement is forced to follow the movement of the soft tissue. The goal of this study is comparison of periodentium related to single and ...  Read More

Determination of the Degree of Three-dimensional Poincaré Section in Epileptic Seizure Detection by EEG

Saleh Lashkari; Mohammad Ali Khalilzadeh; Seyed Mohammad Reza Hashemi Golpayegani

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 59-69

  Using methods based on nonlinear dynamics such as Poincare Section, can be useful in detecting dynamic biological systems. Selecting a suitable Poincare surface is a critical step in data analysis. Often finding an appropriate position for Poincare section needs to set different parameters. When the ...  Read More

Full Automatic Classification of Suspicious Areas in Breast Thermo Images for Early Cancer Detection

Amir Ehsan Lashkari; Fatemeh Pak; Mohammad Firouzmand

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 71-84

  Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women. The important key to treat the breast cancer is early detection of it because according to many pathological studies more 80% of all abnormalities are still benign at primary stages; so in recent years, many studies and extensive research done ...  Read More

Transparent Bilateral Control with On-line Identification of Tissue Parameters for Telesurgery Robotic Systems

Mojtaba Sharifi; Saeid Behzadipour; Hasan Salarieh; Farzam Farahmand

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 85-98

  In this paper, a transparent bilateral controller is developed for the control of telesurgery systems that have physical interactions with soft tissue. In this control method, the parameters of a viscoelastic model of the soft tissue are estimated during its interaction with the slave robot using an ...  Read More

Altered Connectivity of Task Related Functional Networks in Healthy Aging

Somayeh Maleki Balajoo; Davoud Asemani; Hamid Soltanian-Zadeh

Volume 9, Issue 1 , April 2015, Pages 99-111

  Although the cognitive deficits due to age-related brain differences have been largely analyzed, the altered connectivity of task related functional networks in aging requires more studies. As the brain of old adults experience some alterations in task performance during cognitive challenges, the related ...  Read More
