Fractal-based arteriovenous malformations detection in brain magnetic resonance images

A new fractal-based methodology to detect cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVM) in brain magnetic resonance images (MRI) is presented. First, the MRI is preprocessed to emphasize edges. Then, the result is split into right and left brain hemisphere components that are converted to one-dimensional signals, for which the Hurst's exponent, the scaling… CONTINUE READING
