A new texture operator, gray-level entropy matrix (GLEM), was developed, and nine new textural features were extracted from this matrix. These textural features were applied to light microscopy images of nuclei taken from monolayers of advanced prostate cancer cells representing two different prognostic groups: hormone-sensitive (good prognosis) and hormone-resistant (poor prognosis) tumors. A comparison between the classification results obtained from GLEM features and those obtained from… CONTINUE READING
