Motion analysis for Medical and Bio-medical applications

Abstract : Motion analysis, or the analysis of image sequences, is a natural extension of image analysis to time series of images. Many methods for motion analysis have been developed in the context of computer vision, including feature tracking, optical flow, keypoint analysis, image registration, and so on. In this work, we propose a toolbox of motion analysis techniques suitable for biomedical image sequence analysis. We particularly study ciliated cells. These cells are covered with beating cilia. They are present in humans in areas where fluid motion is necessary. In the lungs and the upper respiratory tract, Cilia perform the clearance task, which means cleaning the lungs of dust and other airborne contaminants. Ciliated cells are subject to genetic or acquired diseases that can compromise clearance, and in turn cause problems in their hosts. These diseases can be characterized by studying the motion of cilia under a microscope and at high temporal resolution. We propose a number of novel tools and techniques to perform such analyses automatically and with high precision, both ex-vivo on biopsies, and in-vivo. We also illustrate our techniques in the context of eco-toxicity by analysing the beating pattern of the heart of fish embryo
