This paper presents the potential for fractal analysis of time sequence contrast-enhanced (CE) computed tomography (CT) images to differentiate between aggressive and nonaggressive malignant lung tumors (i.e., high and low metabolic tumors). The aim is to enhance CT tumor staging prediction accuracy through identifying malignant aggressiveness of lung tumors. As branching of blood vessels can be considered a fractal process, the research examines vascularized tumor regions that exhibit strong… Expand
Fractal Analysis of Contrast-Enhanced CT Images to Predict Survival of Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma Treated with Sunitinib
TLDR
The FD of the tumor on CE-CT images may be a useful biomarker for HCC patients treated with sunitinib and showed a greater reduction in the FD on the PP image after one cycle of the therapy showed longer overall survival. Expand
Radiomics of NSCLC: Quantitative CT Image Feature Characterization and Tumor Shrinkage Prediction
TLDR
The first objective of this work was to show that CT image features extracted from pre-treatment NSCLC tumors could be used to predict tumor shrinkage in response to therapy, and to identify sets ofNSCLC CT image Features that are reproducible, non-redundant, and informative across multiple scans.

Predicting adenocarcinoma recurrence using computational texture models of nodule components in lung CT.
TLDR
This study constitutes a novel perspective on how to interpret imaging information from CT examinations by suggesting that most of the information related to adenocarcinoma aggressiveness is related to the intensity and morphological properties of solid components of the tumor. Expand
Multidimensional Texture Analysis for Improved Prediction of Ultrasound Liver Tumor Response to Chemotherapy Treatment
TLDR
A new tumor texture heterogeneity model for evaluating response to treatment is defined and results indicate that evaluating tumor heterogeneity in a multidimensional texture analysis approach could potentially impact on designing an early and effective chemotherapy treatment. Expand
Heterogeneous tissue characterization using ultrasound: a comparison of fractal analysis backscatter models on liver tumors
TLDR
Local parametric fractal features extracted via maximum likelihood estimation from five well-known statistical model families are evaluated for the purpose of ultrasound tissue characterization and the fractal properties of the backscattered echoes based on the Nakagami model and its extend four-parameter NakagAMI-generalized inverse Gaussian distribution achieved best results.

CT Texture Analysis—Correlations With Histopathology Parameters in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas
TLDR
CT texture joint entropy and CT entropy were associated with Hif1-alpha expression in HNSCC and might be able to reflect hypoxic areas in this entity. Expand
Extracting multiscale patterns for classification of non-small cell lung cancer in CT images
TLDR
The results demonstrate that CT is an useful source of information for extracting patterns that allow to identify tissue changes and correlate them with histological outcome. Expand
Impact of image preprocessing on the volume dependence and prognostic potential of radiomics features in non-small cell lung cancer
TLDR
Both the correlation with volume and the prognostic value of individual features changed substantially with different preprocessing techniques and it was found that preprocessed features that were at least slightly correlated with volume were more likely to be significant in the univariate analysis.

Preliminary Data Using Computed Tomography Texture Analysis for the Classification of Hypervascular Liver Lesions: Generation of a Predictive Model on the Basis of Quantitative Spatial Frequency Measurements—A Work in Progress
TLDR
This study investigates the ability of CTTA to distinguish different hypervascular liver lesions and compares CTTA parameters by creating a proof-of-concept model to distinguish between different lesions, and concludes that texture analysis may prove valuable in lesion characterization. Expand
Prediction of FDG-PET stage and uptake for non-small cell lung cancer on non-contrast enhanced CT scans via fractal analysis.
TLDR
Results of this study indicate higher FD in CT images of NSCLC is associated with advanced stage and greater FDG uptake on PET and Measurements of tumor fractal analysis on conventional non-contrast CT examinations could potentially be used as a prognostic marker and/or to select patients for PET.

[The usefulness of fractal geometry for the diagnosis of small peripheral lung tumors].
TLDR
Fractal geometry could be useful in the diagnosis of small peripheral lung tumors and there was a statistically significant difference in the fractal dimension between lung cancers and hamartomas. Expand
Classification of lung tumors on chest radiographs by fractal texture analysis.
TLDR
Although the conventional method failed in classification of lung tumors, a clear separation between benign and malignant lesions was attained by fractal analysis and a differentiation between primary lung cancer and metastases was not possible. Expand

Fractal texture characterization provides useful information for the classification of potential solitary pulmonary nodules with CAD algorithms and was significantly better than that for the radiologists. Expand

A statistical fractal-dimension feature appears to be useful in distinguishing MR images of benign and malignant breast masses in cases where expert radiologists may have difficulty, and more robust than other fractal measurements on data-limited medical images. Expand

A computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system based on the fractal analysis is proposed to classify the breast lesions into two classes: benign and malignant and the k-means classification method is used to classify benign tumors from malignant ones. Expand
