Improved Barrett's Cancer Detection in Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy scans using Multiple-Frame Voting
Abstract: 
This paper explores the feasibility of using multi-frame analysis to increase the classification performance of machine learning methods for cancer detection in Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy (VLE). VLE is a novel and promising modality for the detection of neoplasia in patients with Barett's Esophagus (BE). It produces hundreds of high-resolution, cross-sectional images of the esophagus and offers considerable advantages compared to current methods.

Real-Time Instrument Scene Detection in Screening GI Endoscopic Procedures
Abstract: 
Here we describe a new and effective real-time solution for detecting video segments showing an instrument used during diagnostic or therapeutic operations in endoscopic procedures. In addition, we present a new method to create training data: similarity-based data augmentation. This method automates most of the creation of a large training dataset and prevents extensive manual effort to collect and annotate training data by domain experts.

Sparse coded handcrafted and deep features for colon capsule video summarization
Abstract: 
Abstract—Capsule endoscopy, which uses a wireless camera to take images of the digestive track, is emerging as an alternative to traditional wired colonoscopy. A single examination produces a sequence of approximately 50,000 frames. These sequences are manually reviewed, which is time consuming and typically takes about 45–90 minutes and requires the undivided concentration of the reviewer. In this paper, we propose a novel capsule video summarization framework using sparse coding and dictionary learning in feature space.

Visual Localization of Wireless Capsule Endoscopes Aided by Artificial Neural Networks
Abstract: 
Various modalities are used for the examination of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. One such modality is Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE), a non- invasive technique which consists of a swallowable color camera that enables the detection of GI pathology with only minimal patient discomfort. Currently, tracking of the capsule position is estimated in the 3D abdominal space, using radio-frequency (RF) triangulation.

Retinal OCT Image Segmentation Using Fuzzy Histogram Hyperbolization and Continuous Max-Flow
Abstract: 
The segmentation of retinal layers is vital for tracking progress of medication and diagnosis of various eye diseases. To date many methods for the analysis exists, however the speckle noise and shadows of retinal blood vessel remains a challenge, with negative influence on the performance of segmentation algorithms. Previous attempts have been focused on image pre-processing or developing sophisticated models for segmentation to address this problem, but it still remains an area of active research.
