      Classification capacity of a modular neural network implementing neurally inspired architecture and training rules 

      Poirazi, Panayiota; Neocleous, Costas K.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Schizas, Christos N. (2004)
      A three-layer neural network (NN) with novel adaptive architecture has been developed. The hidden layer of the network consists of slabs of single neuron models, where neurons within a slab-but not between slabs- have the ...

      Comparing Different Classifiers for Automatic Age Estimation 

      Lanitis, A.; Draganova, C.; Christodoulou, Chris C. (2004)
      We describe a quantitative evaluation of the performance of different classifiers in the task of automatic age estimation. In this context, we generate a statistical model of facial appearance, which is subsequently used ...

      Hyaluronan-Derived Swelling of Solid Tumors, the Contribution of Collagen and Cancer Cells, and Implications for Cancer Therapy 

      Voutouri, C.; Polydorou, C.; Papageorgis, P.; Gkretsi, V.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2016)
      Despite the important role that mechanical forces play in tumor growth and therapy, the contribution of swelling to tumor mechanopathology remains unexplored. Tumors rich in hyaluronan exhibit a highly negative fixed charge ...

      Media thickness measurement of the common carotid artery. 

      Loizou, Christos P.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Pantzaris, Marios C.; Nicolaïdes, Andrew N.; Georgiou, Niki; Kyriacou, Efthyvoulos C. (2007)
      The intima-media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid artery (CCA) is widely used as an early indicator of the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It was proposed but not thoroughly investigated that the media ...

      Molecular genetics of familial hematuric diseases 

      Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D.; Pierides, Alkis M.; Voskarides, Konstantinos (2013)
      The familial hematuric diseases are a genetically heterogeneous group of monogenic conditions, caused by mutations in one of several genes. The major genes involved are the following: (i) the collagen IV genes COL4A3/A4/A5 ...

      Texture-based classification of hysteroscopy images of the endometrium. 

      Neofytou, Marios S.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Tanos, Vasilios; Kyriacou, Efthyvoulos C.; Koutsouris, Demetrios Dionysios (2006)
      The objective of this study was to classify hysteroscopy images of the endometrium based on texture analysis for the early detection of gynaecological cancer. A total of 418 regions of interest (ROIs) were extracted (209 ...
