Skewness as feature for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease using SPECT images


This paper presents a computer-aided diagnosis technique for improving the accuracy of the early diagnosis of the Alzheimer type dementia. The proposed methodology is based on the calculation of the skewness to each m-by-m sliding block of the transaxial slices of the SPECT brain images. We replace the center pixel in the m-by-m block by the skewness value… (More)
