In the field of saliency detection, many graph-based algorithms heavily depend on the accuracy of the pre-processed superpixel segmentation, which leads to significant sacrifice of detail information from the input image. In this paper, we propose a novel bottom-up saliency detection approach that takes advantage of both region-based features and image(More)
In this paper, a face recognition algorithm using multi feature and Radial basis Function Network (RBFN) is proposed. The algorithm consists of three steps. In the first step, a coarse classification is performed using Fourier frequency spectrum feature, and only the first k gallery images with minimum Euclidean distance to the probe image are retained. In(More)
In this paper, we propose a new classification method for five categories of lung tissues in high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) images, with feature-based image patch approximation. We design two new feature descriptors for higher feature descriptiveness, namely the rotation-invariant Gabor-local binary patterns (RGLBP) texture descriptor and(More)
An unbiased algorithm of generalized linear least squares (GLLS) for parameter estimation of nonuniformly sampled biomedical systems is proposed. The basic theory and detailed derivation of the algorithm are given. This algorithm removes the initial values required and computational burden of nonlinear least regression and achieves a comparable estimation(More)
Spatial and temporal plantar pressure distributions are important and useful measures in footwear evaluation, athletic training, clinical gait analysis, and pathology foot diagnosis. However, present plantar pressure measurement and analysis systems are more or less uncomfortable to wear and expensive. This paper presents an in-shoe plantar pressure(More)
The accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is essential for patient care and will be increasingly important as disease modifying agents become available, early in the course of the disease. Although studies have applied machine learning methods for the computer-aided diagnosis of AD, a bottleneck in the diagnostic performance was shown in previous(More)
This letter describes an approach to perceptual segmentation of images through the means of clustering of spatial patterns. An image is modeled as a set of spatial patterns defined on a rectangular lattice. The distance between a spatial pattern and each cluster is defined as a combination of the Euclidean distance in the feature space and the spatial(More)
Image patch classification is an important task in many different medical imaging applications. In this work, we have designed a customized Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) with shallow convolution layer to classify lung image patches with interstitial lung disease (ILD). While many feature descriptors have been proposed over the past years, they can be(More)
