Transcript of Early detect larynx cancers using sound technology

Early Detection of Larynx Cancer Using Sound Technology
Contributing to start a new scientific field by taking advantages of engineering technologies to automate medical applications.
Proving the existence of sound differences between various larynx diseases that may affect sound , such as cancer.
Contributing to design of an entirely new system to simplify the cancer diagnosis .

Building a strong and new software application to early detect and diagnosis Larynx Cancer through sound features.

Lots of normal and larynx infected people.
Smokers(especially dark skin smokers) between the ages of 50 and 70.
Weak possibilities health centers and hospitals.
Literature Review – Topics
The larynx(or voice box ):
located in the throat .
Voice (or vocalization):
Produced by humans and other vertebrations using the lungs and the vocal folds in the larynx .
Generated by airflow from the lungs as the vocal folds vibrate .

1- Collecting voice samples:
The process of collecting patients voice samples , detailed ,information and medical examination
Quiet room.
Special microphone.
4-6 cm space between mic and patients mouth.
Vowel recorded /a/ or /ann/ /a/.
Repeating the sound for 5 times

Problem Statement & Motivation
Development of new and advanced medical methods.
The ability to cure larynx cancers if detected in early stages.
Financial ,psychological and time difficulties .
Effect of larynx cancer on sound features.
Aims to develop a new technology used to early detect larynx cancers through sound.

This project aims to early detect the larynx cancers in early stages by exploitation of sound technology ,and it is going to be achieved through:
Surveying the literature for understanding previous studies .
Finding , gathering and recording normal and abnormal sounds of patients .
Differentiating clearly between normal and abnormal sounds .
Exactly differentiating if abnormal sounds is just an injury in one of larynx disease, or it is a cancer .
Building an accurate and easy to use application software that perform this job .

Literature Review - Topics
Is an immensely information-rich signal exploiting:
Frequency, amplitude, time modulated carriers .
Convey information .
Speech processing :
is the study of speech signal and the processing methods of these signals .

Literature Review - Topics
Disorders of the voice involve problems with:
Pitch is the highness or lowness of a sound based on the frequency of the sound waves.
Loudness is the perceived volume (or amplitude) of the sound.
Quality refers to the character or distinctive attributes of a sound.

Literature Review – Techniques
Algorithms and techniques used in this study:
Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficient (MFCC).
Dynamic Time Warping algorithm (DTW).
Chebyshev filters.
Support Vector Machine(SVM).

Literature Review –Tools
Common tools used in this study:
Java language platform.
MATLAB platform.

2. Noise Filtering and Feature Extraction:
Noise Filtering
The process to eliminate noise in the signal.
Feature Extraction
The process where we extract the features that distinguish one disease from the other.
Possible tool:
Chebyshev type2 Filter.

3. Preparing the Training data set:
Classifying into groups based on the diseases.
Storing the training data set in the database.

4. Signal Comparison:

Comparing the input signal with the training data set.

Possible algorithm:
Support Vector Machine(SVM).

Gathered and recorded normal and abnormal sounds.
Differentiated clearly between normal and abnormal sounds.
Differentiated if abnormal sounds is just an injury in one of larynx disease, or it is a cancer.
Built an accurate and easy to use application software that perform this job.
