Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) has been shown to be a potentially important medical diagnostic tool. The success of MRS depends on the quantitative data analysis, i.e., the interpretation of the signal in terms of relevant physical parameters, such as frequencies, decay constants, and amplitudes. A variety of time-domain algorithms to extract(More)
Accurate quantitation of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) signals is an essential step before converting the estimated signal parameters, such as frequencies, damping factors, and amplitudes, into biochemical quantities (concentration, pH). Several subspace-based parameter estimators have been developed for this task, which are efficient and accurate(More)
Magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) provides information about the spatial metabolic heterogeneity of an organ in the human body. In this way, MRSI can be used to detect tissue regions with abnormal metabolism, e.g. tumor tissue. The main drawback of MRSI in clinical practice is that the analysis of the data requires a lot of expertise from the(More)
A new technique is presented to create nosologic images of the brain based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI). A nosologic image summarizes the presence of different tissues and lesions in a single image by color coding each voxel or pixel according to the histopathological class it is assigned to. The(More)
In this article an accurate and efficient technique for tissue typing is presented. The proposed technique is based on Canonical Correlation Analysis, a statistical method able to simultaneously exploit the spectral and spatial information characterizing the Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging (MRSI) data. Recently, Canonical Correlation Analysis has(More)
A new fast and accurate tissue typing technique has recently been successfully applied to prostate MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data. This technique is based on canonical correlation analysis (CCA), a statistical method able to simultaneously exploit the spectral and spatial information characterizing the MRSI data. Here, the performance of CCA is(More)
A reliable and automatic method is applied to crystallographic data for tissue typing. The technique is based on canonical correlation analysis, a statistical method which makes use of the spectral-spatial information characterizing X-ray diffraction data measured from bone samples with implanted tissues. The performance has been compared with a standard(More)
A filter based on the Hankel Lanczos Singular Value Decomposition (HLSVD) technique is presented and applied for the first time to X-ray diffraction (XRD) data. Synthetic and real powder XRD intensity profiles of nanocrystals are used to study the filter performances with different noise levels. Results show the robustness of the HLSVD filter and its(More)
