BACKGROUND In recent years, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become important in brain tumor diagnosis. Using this modality, physicians can locate specific pathologies by analyzing differences in tissue character presented in different types of MR images.This paper uses an algorithm integrating fuzzy-c-mean (FCM) and region growing techniques for(More)
This paper presents a novel approach to document clustering based on some geometric structure in Combinatorial Topology. Given a set of documents, the set of associations among frequently co-occurring terms in documents forms naturally a simplicial complex. Our general thesis is each connected component of this simplicial complex represents a concept in the(More)
Overly generalized predictions are a serious problem in concept classiÿcation. In particular, the boundaries among classes are not always clearly deÿned. For example, there are usually uncertainties in diagnoses based on data from biochemical laboratory examinations. Such uncertainties make the prediction be more diicult than noise-free data. To avoid such(More)
OBJECTIVES Midline shift (MLS) is an important quantitative feature for evaluating severity of brain compression by various pathologies, including traumatic intracranial hematomas. In this study, we sought to determine the accuracy and the prognostic value of our computer algorithm that automatically measures the MLS of the brain on computed tomography (CT)(More)
Midline shift (MLS) is an important quantitative feature clinicians use to evaluate the severity of brain compression by various pathologies. The midline consists of many anatomical structures including the septum pellucidum (SP), a thin membrane between the frontal horns (FH) of the lateral ventricles. We proposed a procedure that can measure MLS by(More)
