Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The prompt delivery of biomedical images for emergency diagnosis purpose is an important issue in health care organizations. This paper is aimed a developing class of algorithms to view and manipulate medical images on mobile devices and mainly PDA handhelds. We illustrate our method on human brain scans to view: 2-D single medical imaging scans, multi frames/slices medical imaging scans, internal 3-D anatomical details of a simulated straight line-cut, and the reconstruction of the original scanned object e.g. the original head image.
