In mammography diagnosis systems, high False Negative Rate (FNR) has always been a significant problem since a false negative answer may lead to a patient's death. This paper is directed towards the development of a novel Computer-aided Diagnosis (CADx) system for the diagnosis of breast masses. It aims at intensifying the performance of CADx algorithms as(More)
Classification of breast abnormalities such as masses is a challenging task for radiologists. Computer-aided Diagnosis (CADx) technology may enhance the performance of radiologists by assisting them in classifying patterns into benign and malignant categories. Although Neural Networks (NN) such as Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) have drawbacks, namely long(More)
In this paper a novel approach is proposed for approximating Parks-McClellan low-pass differentiators using optimized low-order IIR filters. Indeed, a suitable IIR filter is designed for approximating Parks- McClellan Low pass differentiator using modified Al-Alaoui’s method, and then denominator polynomial coefficients of resulting transfer function(More)
To compensate for bias field inhomogeneity and reduce noise, we incorporate domain-based knowledge and spatial information into a brain segmentation algorithm by proposing a new multi-layer Hidden Markov model. Brain tissues include Gray Matter (GM), White Matter (WM), and Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF). A typical slice of a brain image either contains GM, GM-WM(More)
Unsupervised clustering is a powerful technique that can be used for distinguishing the real target from the false targets such as flares in the images formed by infrared sensors in missiles. The ISODATA is such an algorithm that could be used in infrared guided missiles detectors, since the algorithm itself computes the number of clusters or in other words(More)
The power-delay product is a direct measurement of the energy expanded per operational cycle of an arithmetic circuit. Lowering the supply voltage of the full adder cell to achieve low power-delay product is a sensible approach to improve the power efficiency at sustainable speed of arithmetic circuits composed of such instances at high level design. In(More)
In this paper a new No-Reference (NR) objective quality measurement method based on spread spectrum technique and discrete wavelet transform using ROI processing is proposed. In this method we divide the original image into two separate sub-images called ROI and non-ROI. Region of interest (ROI) is the decision area in a medical image which is very(More)
Many research works have been done in face recognition during the last years that indicates the importance of face recognition systems in many applications including identity authentication. In this paper we propose an approach for face recognition which is suitable for unconstrained image acquisition and has a low computational cost. Since in practical(More)
