Survey of Image Processing Techniques for Brain Pathology Diagnosis: Challenges and Opportunities

  title={Survey of Image Processing Techniques for Brain Pathology Diagnosis: Challenges and Opportunities},
  author={Martin Cenek and Masa Hu and Gerald E. York and Spencer Dahl},
  journal={Frontiers in Robotics and AI},
In recent years, a number of new products introduced to the global market combine intelligent robotics, artificial intelligence and smart interfaces to provide powerful tools to support professional decision making. However, while brain disease diagnosis from the brain scan images is supported by imaging robotics, the data analysis to form a medical diagnosis is performed solely by highly trained medical professionals. Recent advances in medical imaging techniques, artificial intelligence…

A Novel Method for Differential Prognosis of Brain Degenerative Diseases Using Radiomics-Based Textural Analysis and Ensemble Learning Classifiers
This study explores the longitudinal OASIS-3 dataset, which consists of 4096 brain MRI scans collected over a period of 15 years, and proposes a novel texture analysis matrix, Decreasing Gray-Level Matrix or DGLM, which helps to further improve the accuracy of the decision support system.
Uncertainty-aware Brain Lesion Visualization
This work presents an uncertainty-aware visualization pipeline especially designed for brain lesions that provides a quantification of trust in the generated results and indicates increased knowledge discovery in brain lesion analysis.
Towards an Architecture of a Multi-purpose, User-Extendable Reference Human Brain Atlas.
A new definition of a reference human brain atlas that serves education, research and clinical applications, and is extendable by its user is introduced and an architecture of a multi-purpose, user-extendable reference humanbrain atlas is proposed and its implementation discussed.

Machine learning for medical diagnosis: history, state of the art and perspective
The Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS)
The set-up and results of the Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS) organized in conjunction with the MICCAI 2012 and 2013 conferences are reported, finding that different algorithms worked best for different sub-regions, but that no single algorithm ranked in the top for all sub-Regions simultaneously.
Histogram-Based Feature Extraction from Individual Gray Matter Similarity-Matrix for Alzheimer's Disease Classification.
The experimental results indicate that the performance of the proposed CAD system is competitive with respect to state-of-the-art techniques reported in the literature.
