This paper presents a novel approach for detection of Fatty liver disease (FLD) and Heterogeneous liver using textural analysis of liver ultrasound images. The proposed system is able to automatically assign a representative region of interest (ROI) in a liver ultrasound which is subsequently used for diagnosis. This ROI is analyzed using Wavelet Packet Transform (WPT) and a number of statistical features are obtained. A multi-class linear support vector machine (SVM) is then used for… CONTINUE READING
