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)
Medical imaging is fundamental to modern healthcare, and its widespread use has resulted in the creation of image databases, as well as picture archiving and communication systems. These repositories now contain images from a diverse range of modalities, multidimensional (three-dimensional or time-varying) images, as well as co-aligned multimodality images.(More)
Multifractal analysis is becoming more and more popular in image segmentation community, in which the box-counting based multifractal dimension estimations are most commonly used. However, in spite of its computational efficiency, the regular partition scheme used by various box-counting methods intrinsically produces less accurate results. In this paper, a(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)
Positron emission tomography (PET) is an important tool for enabling quantification of human brain function. However, quantitative studies using tracer kinetic modeling require the measurement of the tracer time-activity curve in plasma (PTAC) as the model input function. It is widely believed that the insertion of arterial lines and the subsequent(More)
The advances in digital medical imaging and storage in integrated databases are resulting in growing demands for efficient image retrieval and management. Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) refers to the retrieval of images from a database, using the visual features derived from the information in the image, and has become an attractive approach to(More)
Functional neuroimaging has an important role in non-invasive diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders. There are now large volumes of imaging data generated by functional imaging technologies and so there is a need to efficiently manage and retrieve these data. In this paper, we propose a new scheme for efficient 3D content-based neurological image(More)
