Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)

Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Using Python


This system allows Louisville Hospital to store, view and share DICOM images that come from different MRI machines locally and externally.
This system is called a PACS (picture archiving and communication system) is an evolving healthcare technology for storage, retrieval, management, distribution and presentation of medical images such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) , computed axial tomography (CAT scan) equipment and etc.  
This system has three components:

1) Security app. for distribution and exchange of patient information. 
2) Mobile friendly app. for viewing, processing, and interpreting images.
 3)Database app. that archive, store, and retrieve DICOM images and related documentation and reports.

The model details can be found on this github page.

Analyzing Net Promoter Score using Machine Learning

Overview This article presents a reference implementation of a Net Promoter score analysis project that is built by using Machine Learning. In this article, we will discuss associated generic models for holistically solving the problem of industrial Net Promoter score. We also measure the accuracy of models that are built by using Machine Learning and assess directions for further development. Net Promoter Score The Net Promoter Score is an index ranging from 0 to 10 that measures the customer’s loyalty to the brand. Calculation Customers are surveyed on one single question.  “On a scale of 0 to 10, how likely are you to recommend this company’s product or service to a friend or a colleague?” Based on their rating, customers are then classified into 3 categories: detractors, passives, and promoters.

SQL Table-Valued Function to Find the Best Trend Line Using Linear Regression

Linear regression is probably one of the first regression techniques we run across. It is useful for explaining (and perhaps forecasting) data that has a linear nature, but where the underlying process is unknown. 




This solution focuses on the practical aspects of finding the best trend line for a financial time series using SQL function.
If you have a large dataset with multiple sets of x and y data points associated with some attribute, you can do a linear regression on each set with one query using GroupID.

The great strength of the linear regression line is that it can clarify sometimes ambiguous line charts and quantify the results via the slope of the line.


A NOVEL IMAGE-BASED APPROACH FOR EARLY DETECTION OF PROSTATE CANCER USING DCE-MRI

This blog presents a novel non-invasive approach for early diagnosis of prostate cancer from dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). 
In order to precisely analyze the complex 3D DCE-MRI of the prostate, a novel processing frame work that consists of four main steps is proposed. The first step is to isolate the prostate from the surrounding anatomical structures based on a Maximum a Posteriori (MAP) estimate of a log likelihood function that accounts for the shape priori, the spatial interaction, and the current appearance of the prostate tissues and its background (surrounding anatomical structures).
In the second step, a non-rigid registration algorithm is employed to account for any local deformation that could occur in the prostate during the scanning process due to the patient’s breathing and local motion. 
In the third step, the perfusion curves that show propagation of the contrast agent into the tissue are obtained from the segmented prostate of the wh…
