  journal={Scientific Reports},
In this paper, we introduce a new radiomic descriptor, Co-occurrence of Local Anisotropic Gradient Orientations (CoLlAGe) for capturing subtle differences between benign and pathologic phenotypes which may be visually indistinguishable on routine anatomic imaging. CoLlAGe seeks to capture and exploit local anisotropic differences in voxel-level gradient orientations to distinguish similar appearing phenotypes. CoLlAGe involves assigning every image voxel an entropy value associated with the co…

Classification of malignant and benign liver tumors using a radiomics approach

An efficient semi-automatic segmentation method was developed, which was used by a radiologist to delineate the tumors and resulted in 95% confidence intervals of the AUC, specificity and sensitivity, which suggest radiomics has the potential to predict the liver tumor benignity in an objective and non-invasive manner.

A radiomics approach to distinguish non-contrast enhancing tumor from vasogenic edema on multi-parametric pre-treatment MRI scans for glioblastoma tumors

The results show that the radiomic approach may allow for reliable distinction of nCET from vasogenic edema on routine MRI scans, and thus may aid in improving treatment management of GBM tumors.
