This paper describes the methodology used to create a multimedia collection of cases with interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) at the University Hospitals of Geneva. The dataset contains high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) image series with three-dimensional annotated regions of pathological lung tissue along with clinical parameters from patients with(More)
We propose near-affine-invariant texture descriptors derived from isotropic wavelet frames for the characterization of lung tissue patterns in high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) imaging. Affine invariance is desirable to enable learning of nondeterministic textures without a priori localizations, orientations, or sizes. When combined with(More)
We describe a texture classification system that identifies lung tissue patterns from high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) images of patients affected with interstitial lung diseases (ILD). This pattern recognition task is part of an image-based diagnostic aid system for ILDs. Five lung tissue patterns (healthy, emphysema, ground glass, fibrosis and(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigate the influence of the clinical context of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) images of the chest on tissue classification. METHODS AND MATERIALS 2D regions of interest in HRCT axial slices from patients affected with an interstitial lung disease are automatically classified into five classes of lung tissue. Relevance of the(More)
In this paper, we compare five common classifier families in their ability to categorize six lung tissue patterns in high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) images of patients affected with interstitial lung diseases (ILD) and with healthy tissue. The evaluated classifiers are naive Bayes, k-nearest neighbor, J48 decision trees, multilayer perceptron,(More)
PURPOSE Clinical workflows and user interfaces of image-based computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) for interstitial lung diseases in high-resolution computed tomography are introduced and discussed. METHODS Three use cases are implemented to assist students, radiologists, and physicians in the diagnosis workup of interstitial lung diseases. RESULTS In a first(More)
We propose rotation–covariant texture analysis of 4D dual– energy computed tomography (DECT) as a diagnosis aid tool for acute pulmonary embolism in emergency radiology. The cornerstone of the proposed approach is to align 3D Riesz directional filters along bronchovascular structures to enable rotation–covariant comparisons of the parenchymal texture. The(More)
Pulmonary embolism is a common condition with high short– term morbidity. Pulmonary embolism can be treated successfully but diagnosis remains difficult due to the large variability of symptoms, which are often non–specific including breath shortness, chest pain and cough. Dual energy CT produces 4–dimensional data by acquiring variation of attenuation with(More)
Although the orbit is a small anatomical space, the wide range of structures present within it are often the site of origin of various tumours and tumour-like conditions, both in adults and children. Cross-sectional imaging is mandatory for the detection, characterization, and mapping of these lesions. This review focuses on multiparametric imaging of(More)
