Computer Vision for Hip Replacement Surgery

 

 

 

 

 

As the sole Imaging Engineer for medical device company JointPoint, I developed an image processing framework in C# to auto-place anatomical landmarks in intra-operative fluoroscopy images. Using techniques such as segmentation, adaptive thresholding, and non-maximum suppression edge detection, I created a program to automatically detect the femoral head, femoral canal, acetabulum, greater trochanter, pelvic reference line, and pelvic brim.

This work is being folded into software co-marketed by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Depuy Synthes.

Exploring the Predictive Power of the Shapley Value

 

 

 

 

In Cooperative Game Theory, each player in a game is characterized by a Shapley value, which reflects their share of the total surplus. This idea has been shown to¬†apply – at least in theory – to competitions on directed graphs. In the simplest of examples, Rene Van Den Brink and Peter Borm illustrate how this measure can be used to rank sports teams in a round-robin competition, taking into account the quality of teams that you win and lose against, rather than just your total number of wins.

QTop

 

 

 

 

 

QTop is an open-source python module for simulation and visualization of topological quantum codes. QTop is object-oriented and easy to read, facilitating the addition and assessment of new topological computing architectures, as well as the development of novel decoders.
