Title : “ Signal Processing Based Automatic Medical Doctor ”

Most of diseases such as tonsillitis, breast cancer, femur osteoporosis and so on are needed to detect in early stage, since they are too late to cure in last stage by current medical technology. However, conditions of patients in early stage might not indicate any severe pains. It is hard for medical doctor to correctly diagnose patients in early stage. Moreover, we have problems of medical doctor shortage in remote countries so that automatic expert system is really needed not only for assisting doctor to diagnose but also for working as mobile doctor at home. This talk explains how to employ signal-processing techniques in creating an automatic medical doctor. For instance, in tonsilitis, red color, uvula size, and tonsil size are employed as features for a Fuzzy model to determine early-stage tonsillitis. In breast cancer, we use wavelet packet as filter to cut signal of background, and edge detector to eliminate noise in order to detect calcification that causes breast cancer in the next stage. In femur osteoporosis, edge is detected on x-ray image of bone by canny edge detection with Guassian convolution, contour of bone is then detemined by Snake algorithm. Bone mineral density (BMD) is finally found by comparing brightness in the contour with reference iamges. The BMD is useful to diagnose femur osteoporosis. To evaluate the proposed techniques, we have performed experiments with tonsillistis images, mammogram, and x-ray images of bone. The results reveal 82%, 82.19%, and 82.5% accuracy for tonsillistis, calcification, and bone mineral density respectively. The results should be carefully disscussed in true and false positive errors in term of developing diagnosis assistance instruments in the future.
Kosin Chamnongthai currently works as professor at Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), and also serves as editor of ECTI e-magazine, and assoc editor of ECTI-CIT Trans since 2011 until now. He served as assoc editor of ECTI-EEC Trans during 2003-2010, associate editor of ELEX (IEICE Trans) during 2008-2010, and chairman of IEEE COMSOC Thailand during 2004-2007. He has received B.Eng. in Applied Electronics from the University of Electro-communications, Tokyo, Japan in 1985, M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Nippon Institute of Technology, Saitama, Japan in 1987 and D.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Keio University, Tokyo, Japan in 1991. His research interests include image processing, computer vision, robot vision, and signal processing. He is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of IPS, TRS, IEICE, TESA, ECTI, and EEAAT.

Keynote Speaker II :

Professor Tim Mewes
Department of Physics & Astronomy/Center for Materials for Information Technology,
University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa),

Title : “ Prospects and Challenges of Spintronics ”


Tim Mewes received his doctoral degree from the University of Kaiserslautern (Germany) in 2002. From 2003 to 2005 he performed postdoctoral research at The Ohio State University and subsequently joined the faculty of The University of Alabama. His research focuses on the investigation of the dynamic properties of magnetic materials. As part of his research he is using and developing the new experimental technique of magnetic resonance force microscopy to characterize the properties of individual magnetic structures with sub-micron dimensions. He has worked cooperatively with researchers in many countries such as Germany, Ireland, Japan and Thailand.
