Intravascular high pressure can be controlled to prevent total vision loss, but early glaucoma detection is crucial. The optic disc has been a notable landmark for finding abnormalities in the retina. The rapid development of computer vision techniques has made it possible to analyze eye conditions from images enabling to help a specialist to make a diagnosis using a technique that is non-invasive in its initial stage through fundus images. We propose a methodology glaucoma detection using deep learning. A convolutional neural network (CNN) is trained to extract multiple features, to classify fundus images. The accuracy, sensitivity, and the area under the curve obtained using the ORIGA database are 93.22%, 94.14%, and 93.98%. The use of the algorithm for the automatic region of interest detection in conjunction with our CNN structure considerably increases the glaucoma detecting accuracy in the ORIGA database.</p> 2021-11-21T19:38:11+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Hiram José Sandoval-Cuellar, Gendry Alfonso-Francia, Miguel Ángel Vázquez-Membrillo, Juan Manuel Ramos-Arreguín, Saúl Tovar Arriaga A Practical Review of the Biomechanical Parameters Commonly Used in the Assessment of Human Gait 2021-11-21T19:40:59+00:00 Juan Carlos Arellano-González Hugo Iván Medellín-Castillo J. Jesús Cervantes-Sánchez Agustín Vidal-Lesso <p>The analysis of human gait is a potential diagnostic instrument for the early and timely identification of pathologies and disorders. It can also supply valuable data for the development of biomedical devices such as prostheses, orthoses, and rehabilitation systems. Although various research papers in the literature have used human gait analyses, few studies have focused on the biomechanical parameters used. This paper presents an extensive review and analysis of the main biomechanical parameters commonly used in the human gait study. The aim is to provide a practical guide to support and understand of the choices and selection of the most appropriate biomechanical parameters for gait analysis. A comprehensive search in scientific databases was conducted to identify, review and analyze the academic work related to human gait analysis. From this search, the main biomechanical parameters used in healthy and pathological gait studies were identified and analyzed. The results have revealed that the spatiotemporal and angular gait parameters are the most used in the assessment of healthy and pathological human gait.</p> 2021-11-21T19:39:44+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Juan Carlos Arellano-González, Hugo Iván Medellín-Castillo, J.
