python beginner - healthcare applications

Postby siva00x0 » Sat Dec 28, 2013 4:52 am

hi everyone!

so I am a total beginner to python! i've had some programming experience in C++/java but very long time ago. i'm trying to use python for healthcare applications.

i basically have hundreds of PDFs of EKGs. I need to be able to read certain measurements of EKGs (see attached file, the most important interval i need to read is the Q-T interval).

I am looking to be able to upload PDFs of EKGs into a program that I coded by Python, zoom in to choose each of the points (PQRST), and have the computer spit out each of the intervals.

Each EKG comes on graph paper, and each block on the graph paper represents a time interval in the EKG, so when the EKGs are uploaded, the program should be able to detect the graph paper and measure the intervals based on the graph paper.

Hope that makes sense -

Hi welcome to the forum.
please read the 'new users, read this' link in my signature.

Its not clear what kind of help you are asking for.
Have you written some code so far that is not working?
Have you no code and want someone to write it for you?

The following modules might be usefull or some other similar ones
For grabbing the images from the pdfs extractjpg
For proccessing the images Pillow 2.2.2
Due to the reasons discussed here we will be moving to on October 1 2016
This forum will be locked down and no one will be able to post/edit/create threads, etc. here from thereafter. Please create an account at the new site to continue discussion.
