The present invention relates to motion estimation and compensation. For example, a screen capture encoder performs motion estimation that is adapted to screen capture video in various respects. For example, the motion estimation uses a distortion measure based upon the count of equal/unequal pixels in two regions, sub-samples the distortion measure to speed up motion estimation, and/or uses a search pattern that prioritizes types of motion common in screen capture video. Or, a screen capture decoder performs motion compensation that is adapted to screen capture video in various respects. For example, the decoder performs the motion compensation for pixels with different values at corresponding locations in a current frame and a reference frame, but not for all pixels of the current frame. Alternatively, an encoder/decoder performs the motion estimation/compensation to compress/decompress other kinds of content.
A large part of my work in motion estimation is on warping motion estimation and its variants, also known as mesh-based estimation. The simplest motion estimation method is the block-matching algorithm (BMA), where the pixel values in blocks of each frame are estimated by a displaced block of similar shape and size in the past frame. Warping motion estimation allows these block shapes and sizes to change as they move from one frame to another, therefore allowing a more flexible (and hence more powerful) estimation. In mesh-based motion, unlike BMA, the computation of a motion vector is affected by the neighboring vectors. This interdependence necessitates a costly iterative approach to the computation of motion. The computational cost of mesh-based motion has been a main drawback of this otherwise powerful technique. In [1] we find a method by which cheaply computed BMA motion vectors can be used in mesh-based systems. This is not a trivial task, since a straight forward insertion of BMA motion ...
Head motion is one of major concerns in current resting-state functional MRI studies. Image realignment including motion estimation and spatial resampling is often applied to achieve rigid-body motion correction. While the accurate estimation of motion parameters has been addressed in most studies, spatial resampling could also produce spurious variance and lead to unexpected errors on the amplitude of BOLD signal. In this study, two simulation experiments were designed to characterize these variance related with spatial resampling. The fluctuation amplitude of spurious variance was first investigated using a set of simulated images with estimated motion parameters from a real dataset, and regions more likely to be affected by spatial resampling were found around the peripheral regions of the cortex. Another simulation was designed with three typical types of motion parameters to represent different extents of motion. It was found that areas with significant correlation between spurious variance and
A speculative start point selection for motion estimation iterative search improves the efficiency and quality of the integer-pel motion estimation iterative search by speculatively selecting the start position of the iteration. The start position is selected by comparing the Sum of Absolute Differences (SAD) value of a 0 motion vector, a predicted motion vector and a global motion vector (GMV) and selecting the position with the smallest SAD value. A refinement scheme with a threshold improves the efficiency and quality of the motion estimation iterative search by performing several comparisons to ensure the proper motion vector is selected. Applications of this improved motion estimation search include stabilizing an image as well as many other applications where motion vectors are used.
Recognition of body posture and motion is an important physiological function that can keep the body in balance. Man-made motion sensors have also been widely applied for a broad array of biomedical applications including diagnosis of balance disorders and evaluation of energy expenditure. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art sensing components utilized for body motion measurement. The anatomy and working principles of a natural body motion sensor, the human vestibular system, are first described. Various man-made inertial sensors are then elaborated based on their distinctive sensing mechanisms. In particular, both the conventional solid-state motion sensors and the emerging non solid-state motion sensors are depicted. With their lower cost and increased intelligence, man-made motion sensors are expected to play an increasingly important role in biomedical systems for basic research as well as clinical diagnostics.
PURPOSE: Motion-compensated temporal processing can have a major impact on improving the image quality in gated cardiac single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). In this work, we investigate the effect of different optical flow estimation methods for motion-compensated temporal processing in gated SPECT. In particular, we explore whether better motion estimation can substantially improve reconstructed image quality, and how the estimated motion would compare to the ideal case of known motion in terms of reconstruction. METHODS: We consider the following three methods for obtaining the image motion in 4D reconstruction: (1) the Horn-Schunck optical flow equation (OFE) method, (2) a recently developed periodic OFE method, and (3) known cardiac motion derived from the NURBS-based cardiac-torso (NCAT) phantom. The periodic OFE method is used to exploit the inherent periodic nature in cardiac gated images. In this method, the optical flow in a sequence is modeled by a Fourier harmonic
Membrane rejection models generally neglect the effect of the pore entrance on intrapore particle transport. However, entrance effects are expected to be particularly important with ultrathin membranes, where membrane thickness is typically comparable to pore size. In this work, a 2D model was developed to simulate particle motion for spherical particles moving at small Re and infinite Pe from the reservoir outside the pore into a slit pore. Using a finite element method, particles were tracked as they accelerated across the pore entrance until they reached a steady velocity in the pore. The axial position in the pore where particle motion becomes steady is defined as the particle entrance length (PEL). PELs were found to be comparable to the fluid entrance length, larger than the pore size and larger than the thickness typical of many ultrathin membranes. Results also show that, in the absence of particle diffusion, hydrodynamic particle-membrane interactions at the pore mouth result in particle
A different opinion from Galens about the motions of the head In the first place, we move the head either with a primary motion in which the neck holds still, or with a secondary motion, where the head follows the motion of the neck even if you try to move it in a different direction from the neck. There are two movements peculiar to the head: in one, we bend it forward and incline it backward, or extend it. You perform this motion with a rigid, unmoved neck or with a neck moved simultaneously, whether you do it with a motion equal with the head, or a contrary motion. For although you move the neck forward and the head necessarily follows the neck, still you can bend the head backward with its own motion and easily observe that the head and neck have their separate and distinct motions in bending and unbending. The other peculiar movement of the head should be counted that by which we rotate it more or less as if we were spinning it as a wheel is turned on an axle. You will undergo this motion ...
The system provides improved procedures to estimate head motion between two images of a face. Locations of a number of distinct facial features are identified in two images. The identified locations can correspond to the eye comers, mouth corners and nose tip. The locations are converted into as a set of physical face parameters based on the symmetry of the identified distinct facial features. The set of physical parameters reduces the number of unknowns as compared to the number of equations used to determine the unknowns. An initial head motion estimate is determined by: (a) estimating each of the set of physical parameters, (b) estimating a first head pose transform corresponding to the first image, and (c) estimating a second head pose transform corresponding to the second image. The head motion estimate can be incorporated into a feature matching algorithm to refine the head motion estimation and the physical facial parameters. In one implementation, an inequality constraint is placed on a

Given the complex dynamics of cardiac motion, understand- ing the motion for both normal and pathological cases can aid in un- derstanding how different pathological conditions effect, and are affected by cardiac motion. Naturally, different regions of the left ventricle of the heart move in different ways depending on the location, with sig- nificantly different dynamics between the septal and free wall, and basal and apical regions. Therefore, studying the motion at a regional level can provide further information towards identifying abnormal regions for ex- ample. The 4D left ventricular motion of a given case was characterised by a low number of parameters at a region level using a cardiac specific polyaffine motion model. The motion was then studied at a regional level by analysing the computed affine transformation matrix of each region. This was used to examine the regional evolution of normal and patho- logical subjects over the cardiac cycle. The method was tested on 15 healthy volunteers with

BACKGROUND:Myocardial motion is an important observable for the assessment of heart condition. Accurate estimates of ventricular (LV) wall motion are required for quantifying myocardial deformation and assessing local tissue function and viability. Harmonic Phase (HARP) analysis was developed for measuring regional LV motion using tagged magnetic resonance imaging (tMRI) data. With current computer-aided postprocessing tools including HARP analysis, large motions experienced by myocardial tissue are, however, often intractable to measure. This paper addresses this issue and provides a solution to make such measurements possible.METHODS:To improve the estimation performance of large cardiac motions while analyzing tMRI data sets, we propose a two-step solution. The first step involves constructing a model to describe average systolic motion of the LV wall within a subject group. The second step involves time-reversal of the model applied as a spatial coordinate transformation to digitally relax ...

AU - Wako, Hiroshi. AU - Endo, Shigeru. AU - Kanai, Satoru. AU - Noguchi, Tamotsu. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - Background. Structural flexibility is an important characteristic of proteins because it is often associated with their function. The movement of a polypeptide segment in a protein can be broken down into two types of motions: internal and external ones. The former is deformation of the segment itself, but the latter involves only rotational and translational motions as a rigid body. Normal Model Analysis (NMA) can derive these two motions, but its application remains limited because it necessitates the gathering of complete structural information. Results. In this work, we present a novel method for predicting two kinds of protein motions in ordered structures. The prediction uses only information ...

Recovering the relative motion of a moving camera from images is a classic problem in computer vision. In addition to being an important problem in its own right, the successful recovery of camera motion is vital for tasks such as building 3D models, recognition, robot localization, navigation, and map building, just to name a few. The two parts to most motion recovery algorithms are matching, or correspondence, and the estimation of epipolar geometry. The most difficult of these, and arguably one of the most difficult tasks in all of image processing, is in determining correspondence. In fact, one can recover the epipolar geometry of a moving camera without having solved for correspondences perfectly, however even knowing the epipolar geometry does not always ensure a solution to the correspondence problem. While motion estimation is well-studied when the camera motion is relatively small, the problem becomes even more difficult as the camera motions get larger (large rotation or wider baseline). In
Following lesions to (usually) the right parietal lobe, patients may fail to report stimuli on their contralesional side if a stimulus is also presented ipsilesionally. The problem can be ameliorated if the stimuli form part of a common action (e.g., a bottle pouring into a glass), when the contralesional item may be brought to awareness. We examined whether this improved awareness depended on implied motion from one object to another. This was tested using pairs of stimuli in which one had implied motion towards or away from the other stimulus. The results showed that patients were more aware of the presence of two objects on trials when one object had implied motion towards the other, compared with when motion was directed away from the second object. This held when the implied motion was in the contralesional as well as when it was in the ipsilesional field. In a single case, this effect held even when the direction of motion could not be explicitly discriminated. The data suggest that motion was
This review considers the management of motion in photon radiation therapy.

A method of temporally adaptive filtering of the frames of an image sequence is disclosed. To filter the kth frame, first, the motion trajectories that transverse the pixel locations at the kth frame are determined using a motion estimation algorithm. Motion trajectories pass through a predetermined number of frames neighboring the kth frame. Image values at the neighboring frames, along motion trajectories are then evaluated. Temporally adaptive linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) estimates of the image values at the pixel locations of the kth frame are determined using the image values along the motion trajectories. These steps are repeated for each of the other frames of the image sequence.

Despite their importance for biological activity, slower molecular motions beyond the nanosecond range remain poorly understood. We have assembled an unprecedented set of experimental NMR data, comprising up to 27 residual dipolar couplings per amino acid, to define the nature and amplitude of backbone motion in protein G using the Gaussian axial fluctuation model in three dimensions. Slower motions occur in the loops, and in the beta-sheet, and are absent in other regions of the molecule, including the alpha-helix. In the beta-sheet an alternating pattern of dynamics along the peptide sequence is found to form a long-range network of slow motion in the form of a standing wave extending across the beta-sheet, resulting in maximal conformational sampling at the interaction site. The alternating nodes along the sequence match the alternation of strongly hydrophobic side chains buried in the protein core. Confirmation of the motion is provided through extensive cross-validation and by independent ...
The motion ranges of the tumors in lung for 20 cases were measured 3-dimensionally in Table 2. Fig. 2 shows the motion ranges for each segment of lung as box-and-whisker plots. The margin of the box means 25% from average of Gaussian distribution. The horizontal bar in the center of the box means average and the upper and lower horizontal bars are for the maximum and the minimum motion ranges of the 20 cases. The maximum GTV motion range is about 2 cm. The motion ranges for 4 segments of lung (RUL, RLL, LUL, and LLL) were measured, respectively in the Fig. 3. The average motion ranges were 1.73 mm, 3.52 mm, and 6.39 mm for RL, AP, and CC directions. The results of the motion ranges dependency according to tumor location are shown in Table 3. The tumor motion in RL direction was not shown in Table 3, since RL motion ranges were not normally distributed. The motion ranges of GTVs are statistically significant only for the tumor motion in craniocaudal direction. The average tumor motion range of ...

This is the first clinical description of multiscale motion mapping, a novel computer vision-based approach for quantification of motion in echocardiograms. Based on comprehensive mathematical analysis of digital images, and using strategies similar in several aspects to the human visual system, multiscale motion mapping allows visualization and quantification of true 2D heart motion independent of borders, Doppler, and beam angles. From a single conventional grayscale data set, multiscale motion mapping is able to quantify absolute local velocity, 2D velocity direction, 2D strain rates, and principal axes of strain components.. The ability to objectively quantify heart function is much needed today for a number of reasons. The epidemic of heart failure calls for improved methods to diagnose impaired myocardial function at an early stage, to follow its course quantitatively, and to study the impact of new therapeutic strategies in a noninvasive but objective manner. The ever-increasing ...
It has been well recognized that dynamics is essential for protein function. Local motions such as amino-acid sidechain fluctuations can be studied with various experimental techniques, or predicted in silico by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Global motions are more challenging. X-ray cristallography can for instance be used for determining the endpoints of a motion, but the process can prove slow. In principle, MD simulations could also be used for predicting these motions. However, such motions occur on a timescale which is well over the microsecond, that is, the timescale that can be reached nowadays, using standard supercomputers. Apart from MD, another in silico technique has been used for predicting global motions, namely, normal mode analysis (NMA), which has the advantage of being much faster. Actually, NMA was among the very first in silico techniques used for trying to predict the motions of a biomolecule (R. Levy, D. Perahia & M. Karplus, 1982; T. Noguti & N. Go, 1982). At the ...

Wittingly and unwittingly, we all encounter the beautiful collective motion of living or active matter systems in our daily life, e.g., flocks of birds, schools of fish, and colonies of bacteria. Unravelling, predicting, and controlling such collective phenomena is a major challenge and requires insights and concepts from biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics. One of the prominent questions in these systems is when and how the collective motion starts to emerge from the dynamics of the individual entities. Moreover, active systems present us with exciting possibilities for the design of novel materials and devices, yet they also introduce scientific and technological challenges. Designing simple synthetic active model systems such as self-propelled particles (SPPs) or artificial microswimmers is currently a topic of substantial interest in the active soft matter for a variety of reasons. The collective motion of such SPPs bears a striking resemblance to their more complex natural ...

In many modern animated movies, the trick to achieving realistic movements for individual characters and objects lies in motion-capture technology.
However, a recent Ninth Circuit decision, U.S. ex rel. Hoggett v. University of Phoenix, 863 F.3d 1105 (9th Cir. 2017), demonstrates that substance will likely control over form in this context. Specifically, merely calling a motion one seeking to "alter or amend the judgment" under Rule 59(e) when the motion does not actually seek that relief will mean that the motion might not extend the 30-day, jurisdictional appeal deadline under Rule 4(a)..

There are many reasons for such deficit motions. There are inborn or received injures and bodily dysfunctions and also social, psychological and cultural reasons. In modern Western society many people dont move naturally and dont move enough. They live constantly under high stress, sit many hours in the offices, turn to be weak and bad movers. The postures of modern folks also suffer from unnatural way of living and thus make their motion even worse. We see many people constantly bending forward in the upper part of their spine, their shoulders, neck and head are in bad position and affect other body parts and every motion they perform. Others suffer from scoliosis and so on. This bending forward is a compensation for stress, scoliosis is a compensation for bad habit to write and so on. These compensations are good if they have a dynamic nature and disappear shortly after their appearance, but mostly after some short time they become chronic. In this stage they are harmful. They are signs of ...
