Abstract: Endometrial hyperplasia is an abnormal overgrowth of inner “endometrium” layer of uterus which can be precursor of endometrial cancer. Endometrial hyperplasia has been a diagnostic problem for pathologist because of unreliable, non-reproducible results of subjective grading classification systems. It is observed in previous studies that 10-36% endometrial hyperplasia progressed to endometrial carcinoma when it is left untreated. D-score is multivariate quantitative formula for the assessment of endometrial hyperplasia. It comprises three features volume percentage of stroma, standard deviation of shortest nucleus axis and outer surface density of glands. DScore=0.66229+(0.0439×VPS)-[3.9934 ×Ln(SDSNA)]-(0.1529×outSD). It is observed in previous studies that D-score assessment is more reproducible method than other existing qualitative classification methods with strong prognostic value as it combines the quantitative, architectural and nuclear criteria. Existing Computerized morphometrical D-Score assessment is semi-automatic and requires support of an expert technician for assessment of D-Score, requiring an effort of around 30 minutes on average. This talk will present a computerized morphometrical D-Score estimation using a modified nuclei detection approach to address the problem of segmentation of glandular region in colon histology images; The work uses multi category classifier for extraction of posterior probability of nuclei and subsequent nuclei structures in endometrial hyperplasia. Computerized morphological analysis is performed on extracted glandular and nuclei structures for calculation of volume percentage of stroma, outer surface density of gland and standard deviation of shortest nuclei axis. D-score estimates from the proposed method match 94% prognostic decision of manually evaluated D-score by experts.

Speech Title: Optimum and Near-optimum Coherent CFAR Detection of Radar Targets in Compound-Gaussian Sea Clutter

Abstract: In this lecture, we propose optimum and near-optimum adaptive coherent detectors of radar targets in compound-Gaussian clutter with generalized inverse Gaussian texture. The target amplitude and the speckle covariance matrix are modeled as unknown quantities to be estimated. On the basis of the two-step generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) and the estimate of the speckle covariance matrix, the optimum coherent detector and its adaptive version are designed. It is demonstrated that the proposed optimum coherent detector contains three common detectors, which are the optimum K detector (OKD), the generalized likelihood ratio test linear-threshold detector (GLRT-LTD), and the generalized likelihood ratio test detector for compound-Gaussian clutter with inverse Gaussian texture (GLRT-IG). The proposed near-optimum coherent detector contains two common detectors, the GLRT-LTD and the alpha-MF detector in K-distributed clutter, and has a comparable detection performance of the near-optimum detector in CG-IG clutter which was proposed before. Theoretical analysis and numerical experiments illustrate that the proposed two detectors for CG-GIG clutter have the constant false alarm ratio (CFAR) property relative to the estimate of the speckle covariance matrix and Doppler steering vector. Moreover, the detection performance of the two coherent detectors are evaluated by the simulated and real data.

Speech Title: Achievements and Directions Review of Complementary Waveforms for Moving Target Detection

Abstract: As a novel waveform diversity scheme, complementary waveforms show their attractive quality with free of sidelobe in theory, which is potential in effective target detection under various scenarios.

Speech Title: High frame rate along-track swarm SAR imaging based on sparse constrains

Abstract: In the case of long aperture, the data acquisition time of traditional Monostatic SAR is prolonged, resulting in a low sampling frame rate and inefficient data acquisition. Therefore, this lecture designs a high frame rate Along-Track Swarm SAR (ATS-SAR) system in the single-input-multiple-output configuration, aiming to significantly improve the data recording efficiency while achieving high quality ATS-SAR cooperative imaging. The platforms of ATS-SAR are sparsely placed, and different sub-platforms simultaneously receive the echo data of sub-apertures at different positions. Thus, the sub-apertures form a long aperture in a short time. This study delves into various aspects of ATS-SAR, including system configuration design, echo modeling, and sub-apertures cooperative imaging. An effective ATS-SAR cooperative imaging technical solution is established based on sparse target priors. The proposed solution can be widely applied to different imaging scenarios.
