Tissue deterioration as induced by disease can be viewed as a continuous change of tissue from healthy to diseased and hence can be modeled as a non-linear manifold with completely healthy tissue at one end of the spectrum and fully abnormal tissue such as lesions, being on the other end. The ability to quantify this tissue deterioration as a continuous score of tissue abnormality will help determine the degree of disease progression and treatment effects. We propose a semi-supervised method… CONTINUE READING
