Principal Dynamic Mode Analysis of EEG Data for Assisting the Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is currently the most common neurodegenerative disorder in the western world and in the future its incidence is expected to double every 20 years. Because a definitive diagnosis can only be made by autopsy and AD pathology could start years before the first symptoms, there is a need for objective, non-invasive and affordable means to support clinicians in the detection…

Development of Point of Care Testing Device for Neurovascular Coupling from Simultaneous Recording of EEG and NIRS During Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

This paper presents a point-of-care testing device for bedside measurement of cerebral blood flow and cerebrovascular reserve. The device detects neurovascular coupling (NVC) from simultaneous recording of electroencephalogram and near infra red spectroscopy during anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Studies in healthy subjects and stroke survivors…

Automated Lung Segmentation and Image Quality Assessment for Clinical 3-D/4-D-Computed Tomography

4-D-computed tomography (4DCT) provides not only a new dimension of patient-specific information for radiation therapy planning and treatment, but also a challenging scale of data volume to process and analyze. Manual analysis using existing 3-D tools is unable to keep up with vastly increased 4-D data volume, automated processing and analysis are thus needed to process 4DCT data effectively and efficiently…

Scope Statement

We focus on innovative solutions to healthcare needs from biomedical engineering, clinical engineering, and medical communities that bridge the engineering and clinical worlds. JTEHM's unique scope is original work at the intersection of engineering and clinical translation.

The journal’s focus is interdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, healthcare providers, and industry. We publish results and best practices from these translational efforts and serve as a community hub for researchers, clinicians, and developers who are addressing challenges in technology development, commercialization, and deployment for better global healthcare. Our ultimate goal is to improve the practice of engineering in translational medicine and to serve as a focal point for the nascent community. Our interactive content includes video, lively commentary, blogs, and other features to engage our clinical and engineering communities.
