Biomedical Signals Analysis

Biomedical signals analysis

The development of techniques to analyze biomedical signals, such as electro-cardiograms, has dramatically affected countless lives by making possible improved noninvasive diagnosis, online monitoring of critically ill patients, and rehabilitation and sensory aids for the handicapped. Rangaraj Rangayyan supplies a practical, hands-on field guide to this constantly evolving technology in Biomedical Signal Analysis, focusing on the diagnostic challenges that medical professionals continue to face. Dr. Rangayyan applies a problem-solving approach to his study. Each chapter begins with the statement of a different biomedical signal problem, followed by a selection of real-life case studies and the associated signals. Signal processing, modeling, or analysis techniques are then presented, starting with relatively simple “textbook” methods, followed by more sophisticated research approaches. The chapter concludes with one or more application solutions; illustrations of real-life biomedical signals and their derivatives are included throughout. Among the topics addressed are: Concurrent, coupled, and correlated processes, Filtering for removal of artifacts, Event detection and characterization, Frequency-domain characterization, Modeling biomedical systems, Analysis of nonstationary signals, Pattern classification and diagnostic decision. The chapters also present a number of laboratory exercises, study questions, and problems to facilitate preparation for class examinations and practical applications. Biomedical Signal Analysis provides a definitive resource for upper-level under-graduate and graduate engineering students, as well as for practicing engineers, computer scientists, information technologists, medical physicists, and data processing specialists.

Digital Signal Processing System Design (2nd.Edition)

Digital Signal Processing System Design

Product Description
This book combines textual and graphical programming to form a hybrid programming approach, enabling a more effective means of building and analyzing DSP systems. The hybrid programming approach allows the use of previously developed textual programming solutions to be integrated into LabVIEW’s highly interactive and visual environment, providing an easier and quicker method for building DSP systems. This book is an ideal introduction for engineers and students seeking to develop DSP systems in quick time.


. The only DSP laboratory book that combines textual and graphical programming
. 12 lab experiments that incorporate C/MATLAB code blocks into the LabVIEW graphical programming environment via the MathScripting feature
. Lab experiments covering basic DSP implementation topics including sampling, digital filtering, fixed-point data representation, frequency domain processing
. Interesting applications using the hybrid programming approach, such as a software-defined radio system, a 4-QAM Modem, and a cochlear implant simulator
. CD providing all the lab codes

Nasser Kehtarnavaz is Professor of Electrical Engineering at University of Texas at Dallas. He has written numerous papers and five other books pertaining to signal and image processing, and regularly teaches digital signal processing laboratory courses, for which this book is intended. Among his many professional activities, he is Coeditor-in-Chief of Journal of Real-Time Image Processing, and Chair of the Dallas Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Dr. Kehtarnavaz is a Fellow of SPIE, a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Professional Engineer.

* The only DSP project book that combines textual and graphical programming
* 12 Lab projects that incorporate MATLAB code blocks into the LabVIEW graphical programming environment via the MathScripting feature.
* Interesting applications such as the design of a cochlear implant simulator and a software-defined radio system.
