The objective of this paper was to introduce a simple system for the quantitative analysis of ultrasonic diaphragmatic motion. The measurements routinely carried out by the experts were computed and these include: (i) excursion, (ii) inspiration time (Tinsp) and (iii) cycle duration (Ttot). The system was evaluated on four simulated videos and one real video. Manual and automated measurements were very close. Further work in a larger number of videos is needed for validating the proposed method||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9193||ISBN:||978-142449271-8||Rights:||© 2015 IEEE.||Type:||Conference Papers|
