Efficient Morphometric Techniques in Alzheimer’s Disease Detection: Survey and Tools

  title={Efficient Morphometric Techniques in Alzheimer’s Disease Detection: Survey and Tools},
  author={N. Vinutha and P. Deepa Shenoy and K. R. Venugopal},
The development of advance techniques in the multiple fields such as image processing, data mining and machine learning are required for the early detection of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and to prevent the progression of the disease to the later stages. The longitudinal and cross sectional images of elderly subjects were obtained from the standard datasets like ADNI, OASIS, MIRIAD and ICBM. The subject image obtained from the dataset, can be geometrically aligned to the template image through the…

This paper proposes an automatic unsupervised classification approach to distinguish brain magnetic resonance images of AD patients from those of elderly normal controls and shows very good performance for clustering images into AD and normal aging.
Automatic morphometry in Alzheimer's disease and mild cognitive impairment☆☆☆
MR image texture analysis applied to the diagnosis and tracking of Alzheimer's disease
MR image texture may be a useful aid in the diagnosis and tracking of Alzheimer's disease, both as a diagnostic marker and as a measure of progression.
Results of an Adaboost Approach on Alzheimer's Disease Detection on MRI
The use of the Voxel-based Morphometry (VBM) detection clusters to guide the feature extraction processes for the detection of Alzheimer's disease on brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is explored.
Voxel-based discriminant map classification on brain ventricles for Alzheimer's disease
A novel ventricle shape based classification method for Alzheimer's disease has been proposed and the benchmarked results against volume based classification show that the area under the ROC curves for the proposed method is as high as 0.86 compared with only 0.71 for volumeBased classification method.
