Fractal analysis of bone X-ray images has received much interest recently for the diagnosis of bone disease. In this paper, we propose a fractal analysis of bone X-ray tomographic microscopy (XTM) projections. The aim of the study is to establish whether or not there is a correlation between three-dimensional (3-D) trabecular changes and two-dimensional(More)
It has been shown that the analysis of two dimensional (2D) bone X-ray images based on the fractional Brownian motion (fBm) model is a good indicator for quantifying alterations in the three dimensional (3D) bone micro-architecture. However, this 2D measurement is not a direct assessment of the 3D bone properties. In this paper, we first show that S(3D),(More)
BACKGROUND The degree of anisotropy (DA) on radiographs is related to bone structure, we present a new index to assess DA. METHODS In a region of interest from calcaneus radiographs, we applied a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). All the FFT spectra involve the horizontal and vertical components corresponding respectively to longitudinal and transversal(More)
This communication deals with anisotropy characterization of grey level textures in a non stationary context. Three classes of characterization methods are tested. The first class of methods directly uses the non stationary data. We chose here the non stationary fractional Brownian motion (fBm) to model such images. The second class is based on a stationary(More)
