This paper presents a novel method for unsupervised DNA microarray gridding based on support vector machines (SVMs). Each spot is a small region on the microarray surface where chains of known DNA sequences are attached. The goal of microarray gridding is the separation of the spots into distinct cells. The positions of the spots on a DNA microarray image(More)
In this paper, we present CoLD (colorectal lesions detector) an innovative detection system to support colorectal cancer diagnosis and detection of pre-cancerous polyps, by processing endoscopy images or video frame sequences acquired during colonoscopy. It utilizes second-order statistical features that are calculated on the wavelet transformation of each(More)
B-scan ultrasound provides a non-invasive low-cost imaging solution to primary care diagnostics. The inherent speckle noise in the images produced by this technique introduces uncertainty in the representation of their textural characteristics. To cope with the uncertainty, we propose a novel fuzzy feature extraction method to encode local texture. The(More)
This paper presents a computer-aided approach for nodule delineation in thyroid ultrasound (US) images. The developed algorithm is based on a novel active contour model, named variable background active contour (VBAC), and incorporates the advantages of the level set region-based active contour without edges (ACWE) model, offering noise robustness and the(More)
1 Biological conclusions reached during microarray experiments can be greatly affected by human intervention, which is currently required in microarray image analysis. Therefore, accurate and automatic analysis of cDNA microarray images becomes crucial. In this paper, an automatic approach to microarray image analysis is presented. The proposed approach is(More)
–Three-dimensional imaging applications require high resolution images that finally result in high data volumes. Due to bandwidth and storage restrictions, an efficient and robust compression scheme must be developed in order to overcome these limitations. This work presents a hardware implementation of a real-time disparity estimation scheme targeted but(More)
A novel image feature extraction methodology is proposed in this study. By incorporating fuzzy logic into the well-established Local Binary Pattern (LBP) approach we derive statistical feature distributions suitable for noise-robust texture representation. The proposed Fuzzy Local Binary Pattern (FLBP) approach is based on the assumption that a local image(More)
We present an approach to the detection of tumors in colonoscopic video. It is based on a new color feature extraction scheme to represent the different regions in the frame sequence. This scheme is built on the wavelet decomposition. The features named as color wavelet covariance (CWC) are based on the covariances of second-order textural measures and an(More)
Today 95% of all gastrointestinal carcinomas are believed to arise from adenomas. The early detection of adenomas could prevent their evolution to cancer. A novel system for the support of the detection of adenomas in gastrointestinal video endoscopy is presented. Unlike other systems, it accepts standard low-resolution video input thus requiring less(More)
