Airborne and spaceborne remote sensors can acquire invaluable information about earth surface, which have many important applications. The acquired information usually is represented as two-dimensional grids, i.e. images. One of techniques to processing such images is Independent Component Analysis (ICA), which is particularly useful for classifying objects(More)
This study was designed to demonstrate robust performance of the novel dependent component analysis (DCA)-based approach to demarcation of the basal cell carcinoma (BCC) through unsupervised decomposition of the red-green-blue (RGB) fluorescent image of the BCC. Robustness to intensity fluctuation is due to the scale invariance property of DCA algorithms,(More)
Unsupervised decomposition of static linear mixture model (SLMM) with ill-conditioned basis matrix and statistically dependent sources is considered. Such situation arises when low-dimensional low-intensity multi-spectral image of the tumour in the early stage of development is represented by the SLMM, wherein tumour is spectrally similar to the surrounding(More)
Alpha-divergence-based nonnegative tensor factorization (NTF) is applied to blind multispectral image (MSI) decomposition. The matrix of spectral profiles and the matrix of spatial distributions of the materials resident in the image are identified from the factors in Tucker3 and PARAFAC models. NTF preserves local structure in the MSI that is lost as a(More)
A single-frame multichannel blind image deconvolution technique has been formulated recently as a blind source separation problem solved by independent component analysis (ICA). The attractive feature of this approach is that neither origin nor size of the spatially invariant blurring kernel has to be known. To enhance the statistical independence among the(More)
—Exploiting hyperspectral imagery without prior information is a challenge. Under this circumstance, unsupervised target detection becomes an anomaly detection problem. We propose an effective algorithm for target detection and discrimination based on the normalized fourth central moment named kurtosis, which can measure the flatness of a distribution.(More)
Accurate lung tumor delineation plays an important role in radiotherapy treatment planning. Since the lung tumor has poor boundary in positron emission tomography (PET) images and low contrast in computed tomography (CT) images, segmentation of tumor in the PET and CT images is a challenging task. In this paper, we effectively integrate the two modalities(More)
