Abstract null null Purpose null To propose a multivariate multi-step framework for a systematic assessment of the estimation reliability and discriminability of Intravoxel Incoherent Motion (IVIM) model parameters. null null null Methods null Monte-Carlo simulations were generated on a range of SNRs and in different IVIM combinations considering: i) a dense discretization with 24 b-values; ii) a discretization with 9 b-values. A state-of-the-art Bayesian fitting method was adopted. The framework...

In the context of the fourth revolution in healthcare technologies, leveraging monitoring and personalization across different domains becomes a key factor for providing useful services to maintain and promote wellbeing. This is even more crucial for older people, with ageing being a complex multi-dimensional and multi-factorial process which can lead to frailty. The NESTORE project was recently funded by the EU Commission with the aim of supporting healthy older people to sustain their well-bei...

Virtual Coaches, also known as e-coaches, are a disruptive technology in healthcare. Indeed, among other usages, they might provide cost-effective solutions for increasing human wellbeing in different domains, such as physical, nutritional, cognitive, social, and emotional. This paper presents a systematic review of virtual coaches specifically aimed at improving or maintaining older adults' health in the aforementioned domains. Such digital systems assume various forms, from classic apps, to mo...

Wearable sensors play a significant role for monitoring the functional ability of the elderly and in general, promoting active ageing. One of the relevant variables to be tracked is the number of stair steps (single stair steps) performed daily, which is more challenging than counting flight of stairs and detecting stair climbing. In this study, we proposed a minimal complexity algorithm composed of a hierarchical classifier and a linear model to estimate the number of stair steps performed duri...

PURPOSE: Despite its increasing application, radiomics has not yet demonstrated a solid reliability, due to the difficulty in replicating analyses. The extraction of radiomic features from clinical MRI (T1w/T2w) presents even more challenges because of the absence of well-defined units (e.g. HU). Some preprocessing steps are required before the estimation of radiomic features and one of this is the intensity normalization, that can be performed using different methods. The aim of this work was t...
