Computerized Multiparametric MR image Analysis for Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness-Assessment

  title={Computerized Multiparametric MR image Analysis for Prostate Cancer Aggressiveness-Assessment},
  author={Imon Banerjee and Lewis D. Hahn and Geoffrey A. Sonn and Richard E. Fan and D. Rubin},
We propose an automated method for detecting aggressive prostate cancer(CaP) (Gleason score >=7) based on a comprehensive analysis of the lesion and the surrounding normal prostate tissue which has been simultaneously captured in T2-weighted MR images, diffusion-weighted images (DWI) and apparent diffusion coefficient maps (ADC). The proposed methodology was tested on a dataset of 79 patients (40 aggressive, 39 non-aggressive). We evaluated the performance of a wide range of popular…

An Automated Two-step Pipeline for Aggressive Prostate Lesion Detection from Multi-parametric MR Sequence.

A completely automated approach to assessing pixel-level aggressiveness of prostate cancer in multi-parametric MRI is proposed, which efficiently combines traditional computer vision and deep learning algorithms, to remove reliance on manual features, prostate segmentation, and prior lesion detection.

Convolutional Neural Network Architecture Seach with Q-Learning

The Qlearning agent is trained to sequentially select the CNN layers to achieve maximum accuracy on the validation set and is able to find the CNN architecture that achieves better test accuracy than the state-of-the-art model on the ProstateX dataset.

Inferring Generative Model Structure with Static Analysis

Coral is presented, a paradigm that infers generative model structure by statically analyzing the code for these heuristics, thus reducing the data required to learn structure significantly and improving over the standard sample complexity.

Denoising techniques for multi-parametric prostate MRI: A Comparative Study

This study concludes that Anisotropic filter should be opted for denoising T2-Weighted MR image since its details preserving capability.



Computer Aided-Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer on Multiparametric MRI: A Technical Review of Current Research

The performances of 15 state-of-the-art prostate CADx systems are compared through the area under their receiver operating characteristic curves (AUC), and challenges and potential directions to further the research of prostate CADX are discussed.

A prostate cancer computer-aided diagnosis system using multimodal magnetic resonance imaging and targeted biopsy labels

The proposed tri-modal MRI algorithm shows significant improvement over a similar approach that utilizes only T2-weighted MRI images (p= 0.048), and uses support vector machines to train a classification system that predicts the pathology of suspicious cancer lesions.

Semi Supervised Multi Kernel (SeSMiK) Graph Embedding: Identifying Aggressive Prostate Cancer via Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy

This work evaluates SeSMiK-GE for distinguishing benign from cancerous (CaP) areas, and aggressive high-grade prostate cancer from indolent low-grade by integrating information from 1.5 Tesla in vivo Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy.

Enhanced multi-protocol analysis via intelligent supervised embedding (EMPrAvISE): detecting prostate cancer on multi-parametric MRI

This paper presents a scheme called Enhanced Multi-Protocol Analysis via Intelligent Supervised Embedding (EMPrAvISE); a powerful, generalizable framework applicable to a variety of domains for multi-parametric data representation and fusion.

Screening for Prostate Cancer: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement

The USPSTF concludes with moderate certainty that the net benefit of PSA-based screening for prostate cancer in men aged 55 to 69 years is small for some men.

Prognostic value of the Gleason score in prostate cancer

The prognostic value of the Gleason score in prostate cancer is investigated to find out if it is predictive of disease progression or prognosis in men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Regularization and variable selection via the elastic net

It is shown that the elastic net often outperforms the lasso, while enjoying a similar sparsity of representation, and an algorithm called LARS‐EN is proposed for computing elastic net regularization paths efficiently, much like algorithm LARS does for the lamba.

Computer-aided diagnosis of prostate cancer in the peripheral zone using multiparametric MRI

A preliminary comparison showed that the optimal CADx scheme mimicked, in terms of AUC, the human experts in differentiating malignant from suspicious tissues, thus demonstrating its potential for assisting cancer identification in the PZ.

Computerized analysis of prostate lesions in the peripheral zone using dynamic contrast enhanced MRI.

A novel automated computerized scheme has been developed for determining a likelihood measure of malignancy for cancer suspicious regions in the prostate based on dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic
