Relationship of endothelial shear stress with plaque features with Coronary CT Angiography and vasodilating capability with PET
Kalykakis G. -e., Antonopoulos A. S., Pitsargiotis T., Siogkas P., Exarchos T., Kafouris P., Sakelarios A., Liga R., Tzifa A., Giannopoulos A., Scholte A. J. H. A., Kaufmann P. A., Parodi O., Knuuti J., Fotiadis D. I., Neglia D., Anagnostopoulos C. D.
Background: Advances in three-dimensional reconstruction techniques and computational fluid dynamics of coronary CT angiography (CCTA) data sets make feasible evaluation of endothelial shear stress (ESS) in the vessel wall. Purpose: To investigate the relationship between CCTA-derived computational fluid dynamics metrics, anatomic and morphologic characteristics of coronary lesions, and their comparative performance in predicting impaired coronary vasodilating capability assessed by using PET myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, conducted between October 2019 and September 2020, coronary vessels in patients with stable chest pain and with intermediate probability of coronary artery disease who underwent both CCTA and PET MPI with oxygen 15-labeled water or nitrogen 13 ammonia and quantification of myocardial blood flow were analyzed. CCTA images were used in assessing stenosis severity, lesion-specific total plaque volume (PV), noncalcified PV, calcified PV, and plaque phenotype. PET MPI was used in assessing significant coronary stenosis. The predictive performance of the CCTA-derived parameters was evaluated by using area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) analysis. Results: There were 92 coronary vessels evaluated in 53 patients (mean age, 65 years ± 7; 31 men). ESS was higher in lesions with greater than 50% stenosis versus those without significant stenosis (mean, 15.1 Pa ± 30 vs 4.6 Pa ± 4 vs 3.3 Pa ± 3; P = .004). ESS was higher in functionally significant versus nonsignificant lesions (median, 7 Pa [interquartile range, 5-23 Pa] vs 2.6 Pa [interquartile range, 1.8-5 Pa], respectively; P <= .001). Adding ESS to stenosis severity improved prediction (change in AUC, 0.10; 95% CI: 0.04, 0.17; P = .002) for functionally significant lesions. Conclusion: The combination of endothelial shear stress with coronary CT angiography (CCTA) stenosis severity improved prediction of an abnormal PET myocardial perfusion imaging result versus CCTA stenosis severity alone.Source: Radiology (2021). doi:10.1148/radiol.2021204381

Impact of Clinical Characteristics and Statins on Coronary Plaque Progression by Serial Computed Tomography Angiography
Smit J. M., Van Rosendael A. R., El Mahdiui M., Neglia D., Knuuti J., Saraste A., Buechel R. R., Teresinska A., Pizzi M. N., Roque A., Poddighe R., Mertens B. J., Caselli C., Rocchiccioli S., Parodi O., Pelosi G., Scholte A. J.
Background Progression of coronary artery disease using serial coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) is of clinical interest. Our primary aim was to prospectively assess the impact of clinical characteristics and statin use on quantitatively assessed coronary plaque progression in a low-risk study population during long-term follow-up. Methods Patients who previously underwent coronary CTA for suspected coronary artery disease were prospectively included to undergo follow-up coronary CTA. The primary end point was coronary artery disease progression, defined as the absolute annual increase in total, calcified, and noncalcified plaque volume by quantitative CTA analysis. Results In total, 202 patients underwent serial coronary CTA with a mean interscan period of 6.2±1.4 years. On a per-plaque basis, increasing age (?=0.070; P=0.058) and hypertension (?=1.380; P=0.075) were nonsignificantly associated with annual total plaque progression. Male sex (?=1.676; P=0.009), diabetes mellitus (?=1.725; P=0.012), and statin use (?=1.498; P=0.046) showed an independent association with annual progression of calcified plaque. While hypertension (?=2.259; P=0.015) was an independent determinant of noncalcified plaque progression, statin use (?=-2.178; P=0.050) was borderline significantly associated with a reduced progression of noncalcified plaque. Conclusions Statin use was associated with an increased progression of calcified coronary plaque and a reduced progression of noncalcified coronary plaque, potentially reflecting calcification of the noncalcified plaque component. Whereas hypertension was the only modifiable risk factor predictive of noncalcified plaque progression, diabetes mellitus mainly led to an increase in calcified plaque. These findings could yield the need for intensified preventive treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus and hypertension to slow and stabilize coronary artery disease progression and improve clinical outcome.Source: Circulation.

Reliability and human factors in Ambient Assisted Living environments. The DOREMI case study
Palumbo F., La Rosa D., Ferro E., Bacciu D., Gallicchio C., Micheli A., Chessa S., Vozzi F., Parodi O.
Malnutrition, sedentariness, and cognitive decline in elderly people represent the target areas addressed by the DOREMI project. It aimed at developing a systemic solution for elderly, able to prolong their functional and cognitive capacity by empowering, stimulating, and unobtrusively monitoring the daily activities according to well-defined "Active Ageing" life-style protocols. Besides the key features of DOREMI in terms of technological and medical protocol solutions, this work is focused on the analysis of the impact of such a solution on the daily life of users and how the users' behaviour modifies the expected results of the system in a long-term perspective. To this end, we analyse the reliability of the whole system in terms of human factors and their effects on the reliability requirements identified before starting the experimentation in the pilot sites. After giving an overview of the technological solutions we adopted in the project, this paper concentrates on the activities conducted during the two pilot site studies (32 test sites across UK and Italy), the users' experience of the entire system, and how human factors influenced its overall reliability.Source: Journal of Reliable Intelligent Environments 3 (2017): 139–157. doi:10.1007/s40860-017-0042-1

A learning system for automatic Berg Balance Scale score estimation
Bacciu D., Chessa S., Gallicchio C., Micheli A., Pedrelli L., Ferro E., Fortunati L., La Rosa D., Palumbo F., Vozzi F., Parodi O.
The objective of this work is the development of a learning system for the automatic assessment of balance abilities in elderly people. The system is based on estimating the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) score from the stream of sensor data gathered by a Wii Balance Board. The scientific challenge tackled by our investigation is to assess the feasibility of exploiting the richness of the temporal signals gathered by the balance board for inferring the complete BBS score based on data from a single BBS exercise. The relation between the data collected by the balance board and the BBS score is inferred by neural networks for temporal data, modeled in particular as Echo State Networks within the Reservoir Computing (RC) paradigm, as a result of a comprehensive comparison among different learning models. The proposed system results to be able to estimate the complete BBS score directly from temporal data on exercise #10 of the BBS test, with ?10 s of duration. Experimental results on real-world data show an absolute error below 4 BBS score points (i.e. below the 7% of the whole BBS range), resulting in a favorable trade-off between predictive performance and user's required time with respect to previous works in literature. Results achieved by RC models compare well also with respect to different related learning models. Overall, the proposed system puts forward as an effective tool for an accurate automated assessment of balance abilities in the elderly and it is characterized by being unobtrusive, easy to use and suitable for autonomous usage.Source: Engineering applications of artificial intelligence 66 (2017): 60–74. doi:10.1016/j.engappai.2017.08.018

Healthy active ageing supported by technological environment: the DOREMI experience
Vozzi F., Fortunati L., Gallicchio C., Palumbo F., Micheli A., Chessa S., Ferro E., Parodi O.
Introduction: European population aging requires the design of innovative solutions able to support, in term of quality and time, its health status. DOREMI project has developed an innovative platform able to stimulate and monitor elder people as also to be customized on user requirements. Methods: 34 older people (age 65-80 years) were involved in UK and Italy DOREMI trials (3 months). Subjects were characterized at baseline in terms of physical activity (SPPB, PASE test, daily steps/ meters, 6MWT), hemodynamic and biochemical parameters (blood pressure, HR, lipid profile, glycaemia, etc.), dietary habits (caloric intake) and balance assessment (BERG scale). Through the DOREMI technological platform, users were: stimulated to perform indoor physical activity protocol (exergame on tablet); monitored by DOREMI bracelet (heart rate monitoring); invited to fill diet e-diary, receiving nutritional advice provided by the expert through the same application; tested for balance by item-10 BERG test (DOREMI balance board). At the end of trial, users underwent the same test battery of baseline. Results: In DOREMI population an overall increase in physical activity was observed, with a significant improvement in hemodynamic (decrease in blood pressure and HR at 6MWT) and biochemical parameters (decrease in LDL, triglycerides, total cholesterol). The overall effect of dietary advice and physical activity protocol on subject's balance is under investigation. Key conclusions: An integrated approach of physical activity and diet, supported by DOREMI technological platform, represents an innovative approach to stimulate healthy and active ageing of population, with a potential cost-reduction for European health care systems in middle-long period.Source: European geriatric medicine (Print) 7 (2016). doi:10.1016/S1878-7649(16)30148-6

ICT solution for balance assessment in elderly: the DOREMI system validation and applicability
Vozzi F., Fortunati L., Gallicchio C., Palumbo F., Pedrelli L., Micheli A., Ferro E., Lanzisera S., Carotenuto F., Illario M., Parodi O.
Introduction: Aging process is characterized by decline of body functions: one of the major risks is represented by falls. Several screening tools/tests have been used to assess stability. We describe the integration between single-item Berg scale, Wii Balance Board and neural networks to create a new platform for balance assessment. Methods: Two cohorts of older people (age 65-80) were enrolled for DOREMI balance assessment. The BERG balance score and anthropometric parameters (weight, height, BMI) were assessed for each subject. Group 1 (25 participants) showed a BERG score between 41 and 56; Group 2 (50 participants), enrolled in collaboration with PERSSILAA project, had a wider score (20-56) allowing to test accuracy of DOREMI tool in people having severe instability. Item-10 of BERG scale has been performed on the Wii balance board, inviting participant to turn the head to look behind over toward the right shoulder and then over the left. Data signals have been collected by custom developed software and analysed by neural network system for human activity recognition. Results: In Group 1, total BERG score estimated using item-10 data presented a strong correlation with individual total BERG score test; in Group 2 data analysis is under investigation. Key conclusions: DOREMI balance assessment is simple, automated, cost-effective and time-saving ICT solution for prevention of frailty. Once validated in a broad range of BERG scale, this system could objectively predict subjects at higher risks of falls, as well as improvement in stability and/or positive evolution in physical health status after specific treatments.Source: European geriatric medicine (Print) 7 (2016): 750–751. doi:10.1016/S1878-7649(16)30148-6

A reservoir computing approach for balance assessment
Gallicchio C., Micheli A., Pedrelli L., Fortunati L., Vozzi F., Parodi O.
A relevant aspect in the field of health monitoring is represented by the evaluation of balance stability in the elderly. The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) represents a golden standard test for clinical assessment of balance stability. Recently, the Wii Balance Board has been successfully validated as an effective tool for the analysis of static balance-related features such as the duration or the speed of assessment of patient's center of pressure. In this paper we propose an innovative unobtrusive approach for automatic evaluation of balance assessment, by analyzing the whole temporal information generated by the balance board. In particular, using Recurrent Neural Networks implemented according to the Reservoir Computing paradigm, we propose to estimate the BBS score of a patient from the temporal data gathered during the execution on the balance board of one simple BBS exercise. The experimental assessment of the proposed approach on real-world data shows promising results.Source: 1st ECML PKDD Workshop on Advanced Analysis and Learning on Temporal Data, AALTD 2015, pp. 65–77, 11/09/2015

Preventing cognitive decline, sedentariness and malnutrition: the DOREMI approach
Parodi O., Vozzi F., Ferro E., Fortunati L., Micheli A., Bacciu D., Gallicchio C., Chessa S., Ascolese A.
All countries in Europe are experiencing an ageing of their populations, with a decrease in the number of people of working age per retiree. Health trends among the elderly are mixed: severe disability is declining in some countries but increasing in others, while mild disability and chronic disease are generally increasing. As a consequence, long-term care costs are certain to increase with the ageing of the population, unless appropriate measures are implemented and elderly people empowered to follow them. According to the University College Dublin Institute of Food and Health, three are the most notable health promotion and disease prevention programs that target the main causes of morbidity and premature mortality: malnutrition, sedentariness, and cognitive decline, conditions that affect the quality of life of elderly people and drive to disease progression. These three features represent the target areas in the DOREMI (Decrease of cOgnitive decline, malnutRition and sedEntariness by elderly empowerment in lifestyle Management and social Inclusion) Project. The project aims at developing a systemic solution for elderly, able to prolong the functional and cognitive capacity by empowering, stimulating and unobtrusively monitoring the daily activities according to well-defined "Active Ageing" lifestyle protocols. The project joins the concept of prevention centered on the elderly, characterized by an unified vision of being elderly today, namely, a promotion of the health by a constructive interaction among mind, body and social engagement.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2015
